How time flies! In January 2013 it was with great pleasure that I announced the opening of a new VIVA Partner office in Alhaurín el Grande, and since then, more branches followed last year with the inaugurations of VIVA Nueva Andalucía, VIVA La Heredia – Benahavís and VIVA Golden Mile. All of which were preceded in 2012, of course, by new VIVA Partner offices in Elviria, La Cala, Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Calahonda, strategically complementing our VIVA Centro HQ.

So now, just 12 months on, I’m thrilled to be able to tell you about the recent opening of our latest VIVA Partner office – this time in San Pedro de Alcántara which, in addition to covering the entire municipality, will also be responsible for the area to the west of the town, towards Estepona

Has your Spanish property got its Energy Efficiency Certificate?

Energy Efficiency Certificate

We can help to make things as simple and straightforward as possible.

Bringing Spain into line with EU regulations, the Spanish Government has introduced a new law by Royal Decree requiring all property vendors – as well as landlords wishing to rent out their properties for 4 months or more – to obtain an Energy Efficiency Certificate. This new law came into effect on 1 June 2013.

But what you may not know is that all estate agents are under an obligation to include your property’s Energy Efficiency Certificate rating in any advertising or promotion undertaken on your behalf…

Having already opened five new offices on the Costa del Sol in 2012, I’m delighted to say that we’ve started the new year as we mean to go on, with the launch of VIVA Alhaurín el Grande at the beginning of the month, followed by a very successful and enjoyable ‘open house’ celebration on Friday 25 January!

More than 150 VIVA clients, guests, associates and VIVA RECOMMENDS partners, as well of course as the VIVA team, attended the event, and as with all good parties, many arrived early… and stayed ‘til late, as champagne, wine and beer flowed, delectable nibbles were nibbled and going by all the happy faces and animated chatter, a good time was had by all!

At the heart of the beautiful Guadalhorce Valley, Alhaurín el Grande is as pretty as a picture. In fact, the famous Spanish poet, Antonio Gala, famously once called it el pueblo que yo soñé – or ‘the village I always dreamt of’. A large number of VIVA clients are looking to buy a property in Alhaurín and the surrounding area, and obviously share his view!

So it was a logical move for us to open an office in Alhaurín. It also fits in perfectly with our current expansion plans – the object of which is to offer our clients an even better service by having a high-profile presence in their own local neighbourhood – and I look forward to enjoying a great working relationship with the VIVA Alhaurín team.
