In April 2013 we decided to buy a property in the region of Malaga, without having an exact location in mind.
We started screening the internet and got in contact with some agencies, then received a lot of information followed by a lot of frustration because they were not understanding what we were looking for.
Via a common friend – to whom I shared our plans – we got in contact with Meiko. This friend bought from Meiko several years ago a property in the same region.
After some phone calls and emails explaining our needs and wishes, she has send us references with properties that where already matching our expectations.
End of July we decided to visit the region and asked Meiko to make a selection of apartments to visit.
It was perfectly and very professionally organized, really in line with our budget and demands.
She even convinced us to buy in the region between Marbella and Fuengirola.
She also advised us a lawyer that took care of all documentation, from NIE, bank account documents, utilities and of course handling the transaction
We were there for 4 days and the 2th day – the last apartment we visited – we saw what we wanted.
We went back the day after and on the last day we signed the papers for an apartment located in La Cala de Mijas! Amazing after 4 days of visiting.
This thanks to Meiko’s motivation, competence, efficiency and professionalism!”

In 2013 we were looking to invest in real estate but we were still unsure were to buy something (France, Belgium, Spain, …)
In May 2013 we came in contact with Meiko through a mutual friend. After a phone conversation to check our wishes and requirements, Meiko started to send us on a regular base emails with all interesting properties. She kept track of all our remarks and in the end she came up with a short list of all beautiful properties.
In August 2013 we went on holiday to Marbella and stayed in a rental apartment Meiko found for us really last minute! We originally went just to have a look and were not really planning to buy already but Meiko insisted on getting already all necessary paperwork doneto be able to buy something in Spain in case of.
Our holiday was perfectly planned. In the morning we visited properties and in the afternoon we had time to relax with our 2 kids. Against our original plan we decided to make an offer on one of the penthouses we visited. Unfortunately there was another party interested in the penthouse but thanks to the perfect planning of Meiko, the owner accepted our offer as we already had all necessary documents to buy a property in Spain (NIE number, contact with notary, …) and the other party was administratively not yet ready.
What started as a holiday ended in a buying trip. After just 5 months all documents were signed and we were the new owner of a fantastic penthouse!
We would like to recommend Meiko to everyone. Her knowledge of what has to be done and maybe even more important here connections with the right persons (notary, lawyer, …) are a real advantage!
To make such an important step in confidence with someone who can help you in your mother tongue (Dutch) is of course also really comforting.
Thank you Meiko for assisting us in this important step in our life!

Great Job!!! What more can I say?, had been thinking about purchasing for several years but was struggling to negotiate through all the red tape, Meiko Van Brabant and her team guided me effortlessly through the deal, couldn’t be happier, thanks Meiko,

We have since enjoyed several great holidays there with family and friends. Friendly, organised and stress free.

Have had my property on the market for several years both in Spain and here in England, Premier Properties Marbella was recommended by friends who had previously sold through them, Meiko the owner promptly replied to my emails and our townhouse was sold within 5 weeks, Meiko handled all matters pertaining to the sale, all went smoothly, thank you Premier Properties.
My sister and I had to take up the task of selling our fathers apartment in Calahonda, Spain last year, neither of us had knowledge of either the area or the language not to mention Spanish laws and inheritance taxes, the agency took charge of everything, we even left keys with them so that they could show the apartment. All we had to do was come over and sign when it was sold, thanks guys you were life savers in difficult times. We wish you every success in the future,
Regards Sue and Fiona
