Jean and Ray Walton, July 2013
"We were very lucky people to have used Escape 2 Spain for our successful purchase of our villa in the sun! Despite our strict requirements the team endeavoured to offer viewings that were suitable. They listened to us, and supported our family which was such a relief when you are so unsure of the pitfalls of buying abroad. The organisation and communication were exemplary, thanks once more for assisting in our sunshine escape! Regards Jean, Rochdale".

"Thank you to all at Escape 2 Spain. I had a complicated itinerary of 16 apartments in different locations to view in just two days, and the guys at escape 2 organised it all seamlessly for me and my purchase of an apartment in Mijas was completed in just four weeks. Again, many thanks for your professionalism and organisation. Regards, Wendy, Essex".
Helen and Alex Bensley – Kent, Village Green Restaurants, November 2012
"We wanted to say a massive thank you to Ian for all the work and patience in helping us find our magnificent villa in Spain.
When we first contacted Ian we knew we wanted to buy in the Marbella area and be walking distance to shops / restaurants / beach etc, but also a chic area – which really didn’t narrow it down much at all!
After emailing him the properties which we liked the look of on his website, he whittled them down to a few that met our criteria. Ian was very patient and took a lot of time, driving and enlightening us on the areas as well as the processes of buying in Spain.
As we have a various companies in England, we do not have a lot of time, but unbelievably he found us our villa, which we loved although it was not in our initial search area. We completed in November of this year and are very grateful for all the help received by Ian".
Tony and Lindsay Dunlop – San Remo, Australia
“We contacted escapetospain in October 2009 and received a reply the same day from Ian Cunningham who is based at their Costa del Sol office.
We were looking for a property on the Costa del Sol which we would eventually make our home but might also rent out to tourists initially. Having selected the property which most suited our requirements and gone through the information regarding the property itself and the surrounding area which Ian knows very well, and also with the help of additional photos of the property taken for us by Ian we were able to make our decision to proceed with the purchase without actually travelling over to view property in person as we are currently live in Australia.
Within a couple of months the purchase of the property was completed and we subsequently travelled over to Spain in May 2010 and are pleased to say we are very happy with our purchase. We met with Ian whilst there and it is reassuring for us to know he is there to offer help and advice long after the initial legal completion of the property. We are now back in Australia for the moment but are very much looking forward to returning to our new Spanish home at the earliest opportunity“.
Michael Fotheringham - Fotheringham Developments- Aberdeen, Scotland
‘We had thought about the idea of buying a property in Spain for a few years but were reluctant to take the plunge because we were un sure of the process and the procedures of buying there , but once I enlisted the help of Ian Cunningham at escapetospain in early April of this year (2010) and after many exchanges via the internet to narrow down the right selection of properties for us to view ready for our visit in early May.
He made the process of purchasing a property very simple and his professional but relaxed approach to house hunting in Spain and indeed his incredible patience as we changed our criteria as he showed us around different styles and location of properties was first class. Owning my own house construction company myself obviously I brought with me to Spain my own exacting standards when it came to the highest quality and best possible construction standards, but after 3 days of Ian guiding and advising us along the way we have ended up with a fantastic apartment in a fantastic area and this would not have been possible without Ian’s knowledge and expertise, the purchase process of our apartment was completed in late June and we are now very much looking forward to many pleasant times there....Thank you’

Mr & Mrs Goulding, UK - February 2013
Many thanks to you and Kirsty for arranging the viewings at such short notice and over the Xmas holidays. We saw some lovely villas and have had an offer accepted on the property you recommended originally just outside Javea.
Fingers crossed we should be moving over around Easter. Call in and say hello if you're in the area.
Jonathan Kershaw, Cirencester, UK - April 2012
Thanks for all your help and guidance over the last 4 months, your advice about areas and rental markets in Mallorca was extremely valuable. The viewings you arranged gave us a really good idea of what we did and didn't want.
We received our keys 2 weeks ago and are extremely happy with the apartment and are looking forward to many holidays here over the coming years - thanks again for all your help.
Christine Craig, UK
I would like to place on record my appreciation to Paul McMullen from your
office who assisted me in buying an apartment in Palma recently. The email
exchange with Paul came about through your website. I asked a question on
the website and Paul was my initial contact. From that we had a number of
email exchanges. Paul was extremely pro active in his responses, offering
other sites to visit, culminating in arranging site visits for myself and
my family in Palma in July.
Paul was instrumental in providing me with
solid information regarding the properties quickly and responsively and I
feel that his contribution made the process of buying the apartment run
Having never met Paul I do not know him personally but with the emailexchanges I had the feeling that there was a personal touch and for that I am grateful to you and your organisation.
Richard Ayling, Suffolk, UK
Many thanks to you and the team in Spain, especially Vivienne who was, and continues to be, absolutely brilliant with her advice and helpfulness. It has made the buying process painless and smooth and we will certainly have no hesitation in recommending your services to others.
Joseph Withington, UK
To Paul McMullen,
Just a few words of thanks. Just moved into my new holiday home in Spain, thank you very much for all the effort you put in finding this home for me. Your representative in Spain, Warren was outstanding in finding a varied selection of homes for me to view, it was an easy purchase right from the start and not a nightmare experience, as other people have found with other companies. Within 3 days, with the help of Warren I had viewed all the properties, opened a bank account, appointed solicitors & arranged power of attorney. On my next trip out 4 weeks later I only had to pick up the keys and move in. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending your company to anybody wishing to purchase in Spain, Thank you for all your help.
