We have recently completed a purchase of an apartment in Sidari through
Corfu Property Experts.
Can’t praise them enough for their help with everything from recommending a lawyer and accountant to telling us where the nearest launderette is.
They have been a great help to us and we can still rely on them for advice even after the purchase was completed. Highly recommend this company!

We’ve dreamt of owning a small retreat in Greece for more years than I care to remember, but there are some terrible horror stories about Brits buying abroad and as ‘first time buyers’ we were slightly hesitant when it came to committing ourselves, especially as we found some agents painted a much rosier picture of what they were selling, just to get you on the hook.
We were fortunate to meet George last year and we were delighted with George’s approach to selling houses. He actually listened to what we wanted and spent a good deal time taking round various properties, explaining both the advantages and pitfalls of each. He was (and is) refreshingly honest and direct.
In the end the house we chose was habitable but really needed a complete refit to bring it into the 21st century (the bathroom was particularly grim!). Notwithstanding our limited budget, George redesigned the bathroom and kitchen and the outside space. The whole house was to be rewired, re-plumbed (including solar heated water), tiled and decorated throughout and the derelict veranda was to be removed and replaced with and a larger one constructed in Swedish timber. The bare concrete terrace and driveway were to be paved in wonderful golden limestone. New windows were to be fitted (with built in mosquito screens) and a couple of internal walls were to be taken out and replaced to enlarge the bathroom and to provide a space efficient kitchen area.
All this work was undertaken, supervised personally by George and completed to an excellent standard. Kept us up to date with regular photographs as the work progressed and minor redesigns were discussed over the phone before being undertaken. Their communication with us was excellent throughout.
We took possession of our beautiful, new home last month and we are absolutely delighted with it. It’s exactly what we wanted, simple with clean lines, and George’s design did exactly that.
We can’t thank George enough for making our dream finally come true!

I was a complete novice, and had merely dreamed of a house in the sun.
George is an astonishingly competent and knowledgeable agent, who took time over the first two viewings to understand what it was that I wanted, rather than just sell on real estate.
George at Corfu Property Experts, looked after me wonderfully throughout the whole process, making everything manageable and clear, including such helpful follow through guidance.
I recommend, without any hesitation.

We approached Corfu Property Experts as we wanted some improvements made to our home.
We started with laying some concrete paths and because we were so pleased with the work we then went on to have wardrobes built and the outside of the house painted.
George were excellent in co-ordinating the work and making sure we were kept up to date at each stage with photographs and emails.
The workmen arrived on the day we were told, were finished when expected, left everywhere clean and tidy and did a thoroughly professional job at a reasonable price. Corfu Property Experts will be our first port of call for any future work we need

George were recommended to us through a Corfu Forum and after a warm welcome they patiently took the time to understand our requirements. This meant that George selected a number of properties to view and they hit the the mark and resulted in us finding our lovely home in Corfu.
After we returned to the UK to complete our sale there, George maintained the link by email and even took the time to telephone us on the progress of our purchase. All questions we had regarding the legal issues were dealt with quickly and professionally which gave us full confidence that our interests were being taken care of whilst we concentrated on putting our UK affairs in order.
Even when the sale was close to completion, they happily arranged lovely accommodation close by for a month to allow us to finalise the arrival of our belongings, meet the lovely couple we were buying from and also assist with arranging essentials like telephone, broadband etc. If that was not enough, they continue to help and guide long after our purchase was completed and they even have contacts with good and reliable tradesman such as plumbers and tilers.
In short, our move to Corfu would not have been as smooth as it was without George and we would strongly recommend any potential buyer to visit Corfu Property Experts.

We first saw our future home in June 2014 when George took us for a viewing.
Due to the help of both George we moved in at the end of September of that year.
Their help did not end with purchase of our proprty – they are always at the end of the phone no matter what the problem.
In fact they are both more like friends than anything. So thank George for everything.

When I began my search for a Corfu home I made contact with several Agents.
Friends whose apartments I always stay in then recommend I speak with George and made me an appointment and the rest is history.
George immediately made me feel welcome and that I was getting a personal service.
Whilst George, from talking to me knew the property he felt best suited my needs, I wanted to see many of different types in different villages with or without sea views, some needing more work than others. George took me to see many properties so I had all options covered and plenty of choice, giving good advice re the price, approximate cost of any repairs etc and at no time did he ever put any pressure on me.
Finally a decision was made. George knew both my accountant and Lawyer, which helped even though I had sourced them myself with recommendations from elsewhere. I made my choice and the bidding process began; George kept me informed. As the completion date approached my partner was well enough to travel, her first ever time to Corfu or even on a plane. George made her so welcome she immediately knew here she was among friends.
We visited the house again, and walked through the decorating, tiling we wanted, etc. The electrician visited and discussed with us works and also with the kitchen fitter. We went to his workshop as well to choose the worktop. Finally we went to choose the tiles.
All through the process to date the service has been excellent, friendly, courteous and informativewith a view to my requirements and never any pressure to purchase.
Now the works are taking place I know I will be kept informed of the costs, progress as they go ahead and all will be completed by the time I arrive for my 1st visit next year which will be to go buy furniture.
We would not hesitate to recommend George at Corfu Property Experts to anybody wishing to follow their dream of buying a house on Corfu. They will not only provide you with wonderful service but as a result they will become your friends. To them it is not just a house sale, it is then helping you to make whatever changes, decorating you want so all is perfect from the day you first use the house, either as holiday home or permanent residence. They take all the pressure off, make the experience fun and enjoyable and fill you with total confidence.
A service that far exceeded my expectations and well beyond anything you would get here in the UK.
They will be 1st on our list of invites to our 1st BBQ in 2015.

They have made our long time dream of owning a property in Greece come true. If anyone is serious about purchasing property in Corfu I would recommend this team who I know would provide a first class service.
Thanks again to you both.

What a fantastic job George did for us when we asked them to find a property to suit us in Corfu, earlier this year.
They listened to what we wanted. They found a perfect property, quickly, which ticked all our boxes. They sorted out a reasonable price with the vendor. They arranged for a worthy solicitor and made sure that we were settled in properly when we returned to Corfu. Nothing seemed to be beyond their capabilities.
George personally supervised the work we wanted doing on the land and saw to it that everything was done to our absolute satisfaction. I want to particularly thank Ianni, who operates a JCB with the flair of a concert violinist and is also a very nice man to know.
We cannot thank Corfu Property Experts enough for the quality and effectiveness of the service they provided. I would recommend to anyone interested in property in Corfu to get in touch with C P Experts.
We felt just like you before we found them. If you want to feel just as happy and confident as we do now, we suggest that you do what we did. Speak to George, who, by the way are charming, upright and speak English with an enviable fluency. We love our bit of paradise in the sun.

We would like to thank Corfu Property Experts for their help and assistance with our property in Corfu.
We have had to communicate most of our business from the UK in order to complete additional works on the house, so it was essential for us to choose a company we can trust, George have been most helpful throughout, we would certainly recommend them.
“We cannot even begin to explain quite how happy we are with Corfu Property Experts.
George you have helped us to make our dream come true and we are just so pleased that we found you in particular. You have been so incredibly helpful, professional, honest and personal, and you have gone above and beyond anything we would normally expect from a property agency. Your advice was impartial and balanced and your recommendations, in terms of solicitors and contractors, have been invaluable. We can never thank you enough for that.
We would highly recommend that other property buyers come to you as their first choice.
We are so incredibly happy with our purchase and the fantastic service we have received.”

We cannot praise the team at Corfu Property Experts enough, their service is first class!
We spent five years looking for a suitable property on the island and were at the point of giving up when we dropped into their office unexpectedly, where they made our dream come true.
Through their professionalism and attention to detail we have found our new home, and their detailed advice and assistance meant that the whole purchasing process was both simple and smooth.
We owe a very big thank you to George!!!!!
