We stumbled over Javea Casas as we were preparing to contact agents to set up a property finding trip to Javea. It is a beautiful area which we had fallen in love with on previous holidays. Dawn and Steve are amazing. Carefully matching our needs and wishes with the available property in the area. Managing the many agents on our behalf and offering invaluable local knowledge during our search. Steve set up our packed schedule and Dawn drove us to each property. Within a few days we were confident we had found our dream home and Dawn continued to help with introductions to an excellent gestor who handled the legalities of the sale very well. It has been very comforting to have such excellent support throughout every element of our purchase, ensuring an exciting rather than stressful experience. We feel that not only have we gained a wonderful new home, but two very special friends as well. Thank you! Your service is second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending Javea Casas.

We started to look for a villa in the Javea area in September 2011, initially independently contacting Estate Agents. We found Steve and Dawn’s details and decided to ask for their support. We were not sure of the specific area we wanted and consequently asked to see more than 100 villas over about 6 visits. Steve and Dawn managed to put together schedules to meet our availability and did all the juggling to make our life easy, also taxiing us throughout the viewings. They have always been very patient in trying to satisfy our demanding requirements. They were always ready with advice and checked out many details for us in advance, always responding swiftly. They arranged for a builder to visit a number of possible villas with us to get estimates of refurbishment costs. We finally decided on a villa and again Steve and Dawn helped and guided us through the completion process, working with the Abogado they recommended. We are delighted with our new villa, which I’m sure we wouldn’t have found and bought without their help Steve and Dawn are very professional in all they do, they are also a delightful couple who we now count as friends. I would unhesitatingly recommend Javea Casas services to anyone searching for a villa in the Javea area. Steve and Dawn do a fantastic job of making the entire search and purchase process as easy as possible, holding your hand throughout what can often be a stressful and problem loaded time.

"Wij zijn zeer tevreden over JAVEACASAS. Steve heeft ons voortreffelijk geholpen in onze zoektocht naar een plekje onder de zon. Hij heeft ons twee dagen meegenomen op sleeptouw in Javea en omgeving. Steve pastte zijn lijst met te bezoeken villa’s aan in functie van onze opmerkingen. Zodoende hebben wij veel tijd gewonnen. De werkwijze van Steve is uniek. Hij verdedigt de belangen van de koper en regelt uiteindelijk zijn tussenkomst met de makelaar die door de verkoper werd aangesteld. We hebben vastgesteld dat Steve op die manier samenwerkt met de belangrijkste makelaars. Derhalve is zijn aanbod zeer groot. Zijn website spreekt voor zich. Tenslotte heeft Steve ons bijgestaan in de Spaanse administratieve "black box” (NIE-nummers, notaris, enz…). Dit hebben we ten zeerste geapprecieerd.
Dank u Steve ! Jozef en Marleen"
"We are very pleased with JAVEACASAS. Steve has helped us excellently in our quest for a place in the sun. He has taken us for two days around Javea and the surrounding area. Steve had provided a list of suggestions of villas to visit, in accordance with of our comments for our requirements. Thus, we have saved a lot of time. In this way Steve is unique. He defends the interests of the buyer and ultimately arranges his intervention with the broker who was appointed by the seller. We found that in this way Steve works with the majority of brokers. Therefore, his supply of property is very large. His website speaks for itself. Finally, Steve has assisted us in the Spanish administrative "black box” (NIE numbers, notary, etc …). This we deeply appreciated. Thank you Steve!

We were looking to buy a property in Spain and did a search over the Internet. www.javeacasas.com was one of the best, as it gave a great range of properties for sale with multiple estate agents. We contacted Steve who showed us around villas which suited our needs. We found one within a weekend which was perfect. We had great service throughout and even the after care service was amazing. Steve and Dawn even showed us around local retailers where we could purchase kitchen equipment and they made it very easy to contact them throughout. We are looking forward to spending holidays in the villa and if I was to purchase another villa in the area, I would not hesitate to use Dawn and Steve at Javea Casas.

Dear Dawn & Steve, Thank you for all of your recent help in finding our new holiday home in Moraira. Buying a property in any market is daunting & stressful, but can be compounded buying overseas in a market that we do not know. We were recommended your services, and your help was invaluable. Your knowledge of the local markets, and the fact you had key contacts with all of the agents meant we had one very easy point of contact rather than juggling numerous agents and appointments, so all of that stress was taken away. After discussing our requirement, you soon knew exactly what we were after and patiently went through all of the listings to only bring properties that ticked all the boxes, a huge time saving exercise for us. You then found us our perfect holiday home, explained all of the buying process, always there for any questions and made sure it all reached a hassle free and speedy conclusion. Your personal attention to detail was first class. My wife and I cannot thank you enough for all your professional service and guidance. We are very happy we found you, and you in turn found our new home. I would strongly recommend your services to anyone thinking of buying or selling property in the area.

We had made the decision to buy a holiday home in Spain and that Javea would be the place. We had a few holidays there, but really very little knowledge of the various areas that made up Javea. We looked on the internet and contacted a couple of estate agents, they were fairly helpful, then we contacted Javea Casas and found that Dawn was just so helpful. She explained the benefits of working with her and Steve, it all sounded brilliant we wondered if it was too good to be true – but they were fantastic. This was a whole new experience for us and Dawn took all the hard work out of the whole process with shortlisting the properties and sorting out the ones that were not suitable, organising and scheduling viewings. She had driven the route and planned out our days to save precious time while we were there and we certainly didn’t expect a chauffeur but was extremely grateful. When we found a beautiful property that was perfect for us Dawn and Steve again helped us every step of the way, there were times when we had a few wobbles but with Dawns practical, calming and helpful attitude we got through it and are now the proud owners of the perfect villa. We did not expect the service that Dawn and Steve provided but with their help, experience, knowledge and contacts it made the process so simple and a pleasure, quite unlike the normal hassle of buying a property and we would recommend them every time. Thank you once again Dawn and Steve.

"In early 2011 I embarked on a search for a holiday home in Javea. Being a very fussy customer, after many months and a few disappointments along the way I found exactly the right place and am now the very proud owner of a wonderful apartment exactly where I want to be! Throughout this time, Javeacasas and in particular Dawn Nott has been literally by my side, researching, sorting out appointments, driving me all over Javea and generally providing fantastic advice and support, whether in Javea itself, or by email. Always available its seems and always willing to offer a view. No pressure whatsoever, just good honest and completely trustworthy advice and fantastic knowledge of the local area. I always felt she was acting in my best interests and she really got a good feel for exactly the sort of place I was looking for. She saved me huge amounts of time and really lived through this whole process with me, providing me with great contacts along the way, right from the beginning all the way through to the final signing of the contract. And of course, not to mention Steve in the background, who I know was also actively looking on my behalf for the right place. Even now, they are my first port of call if I need any help or advice. If you're looking for really good, knowledgeable advice and help, coupled with a friendly smile, then you need look no further than Dawn and Steve in Javeacasas. I can (and have done already done so to friends and collegues at work!) thoroughly recommend their service. You won't be disappointed.

I had never purchased a property overseas before and was a little apprehensive going into the process. I had also never been to Javea so wasn’t very knowledgeable about the local area and the types of properties that may be available. After searching for property agencies on the internet I stumbled across the Javea Casas website and once I made contact with Steve and Dawn the whole process was much easier and they were able to put my mind at rest about the complexities of purchasing there. I gave Steve the features of the type of property I was looking for and he had a list made up before I arrived which filled 2 days of searching. Throughout the whole process I felt no pressure to choose any one property and Steve always emphasised I should be patient until I find the right one. He was very much on my side, acting on my behalf through the viewings, the negotiations and the purchase after the offer was accepted. As a result I felt relaxed about taking my time and became the owner of a beautiful villa which is exactly what I was looking for. He has also lived in the area for over 20 years and has immense local knowledge he is always willing to share. However, that was only the beginning of Steve’s assistance in this process. He introduced me to a lawyer with whom I am extremely happy – the lawyer was efficient, friendly and vastly experienced in dealing with such purchases. I had also been told by another agent the process of obtaining a NIE number in Denia would take 2 to 3 weeks and would require a further visit – Steve sorted that out in a couple of hours and personally went to collect the paperwork on my behalf. Furthermore, since the purchase he has been extremely helpful in putting me into contact with trustworthy people to help me take care of the property, install security etc. I can say without reservation that the help I received and continue to receive from Steve and Dawn has been invaluable and without them I doubt whether I would have even completed a purchase, let alone have a property that perfectly fits my criteria going into the search. I’m extremely grateful for their help over the past 12 months and have no hesitation in recommending their services and local knowledge to anyone thinking of buying property in the Javea area.

Now that we are settled in our new home, we would like to express our appreciation to Javea Casas. The professional service and personal attention we received from Dawn and Steve was exceptional. Their knowledge of the local market and their key contacts helped us in our search for the right house. After patiently going through listings and explaining the buying process with us, they made sure we got the best value purchase for our new home. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Javea Casas to help you in what is a life changing move. We could not have asked for a better service to guide us through the process.
