Do you want to buy a property in Marbella
or on the Costa del Sol?

LA VILLA PROPERTY HUNTER is a service company that was born from a simple observation: Conducting a real estate search on the Costa del Sol is a real « obstacle course ».

LA VILLA PROPERTY HUNTER, the first personal real estate hunter founded over 20 years ago, is an innovative service whose purpose is to save clients' time and money in the search for real estate. Our business is searching for and making preliminary inspection visits to all properties before you arrive in the area. This will avoid you making unnecessary, disappointing visits.

Through the app, you can monitor your project 24 hours a day, with access to properties of over 1,500 agencies, developers, private owners, notaries and bank repossessions ... don’t hesitate, enter and visit…. from home!

Created by an expatriate Belgian inspired by his experience, LA VILLA PROPERTY HUNTER is based in Marbella, Spain.

We are now settling in our new home and excited to be here.

I wanted to let you know how grateful our family is to you, the team of La Villa, and the service you provided throughout our home buying experience. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you were the reason we were able to find and secure the perfect home for us. Given the current market conditions, limited inventory, and competition with buyers for homes, we could not be more thankful for your efforts and your service to us to make it happen. I have been in the mortgage business for over 20 years and can honestly say I’ve rarely seen anyone with your integrity and dedication to service. Thank you. Sincerely,

Mark is the BEST! My husband and I purchased a home with the help of La Villa and their team leaded by Mark. I am a first time home buyer and had a lot of questions, and Mark was more than helpful every step if the way. I would highly recommend him, especially if you are also a first time home buyer and need help through the process. He made it fun and easy. Thanks Mark, we hope to work with you again one day!

You don’t have the time or the will to search?
We’ll search for you!

There are thousands of products for sale on the market, sometimes with tempting financing terms. There are also opportunities for making good offers. However, not all products are of interest, and it is often difficult for buyers to handle this multitude of proposals.

Our goal: to find the property of your dreams, always with your best interests at heart.

Do you want to explain your project?

The purpose of this questionnaire is to help you, without any commitment, to easily describe your future purchase. LA VILLA PROPERTY HUNTER search properties in a personal way, having access to all properties for sale on the coast. It will help you choose amongst the best opportunities and bargains specially selected for you! You might not believe it, but… the best properties are not in internet!

We will contact you within 24 hours in order to obtain further information and to reply to all your questions.
