Spanish Properties Direct is a UK based limited company founded by Sue Adams and Mark Dean, together they have over 20 years’ experience in the residential property sector, in the UK, France and Spain.
After Sue founded French Properties Direct, it became clear to her that the concept could also work in Spain and that more could be done to enable vendors sell their Spanish home without having to incur hefty estate agency fees. There is already a buoyant market in private property sales in Spain, although this has tended to be between Spanish nationals who are at home with the legal system and speak the language. However, thanks to the internet, anyone can easily advertise their property worldwide, attract buyers and sell their home privately

Additional sales tools
Once we forward you an enquiry from a potential buyer, we realise that your work is just beginning. To help make the sale of your home as easy as possible, we create a brochure which you or your buyer can download from the website and print off. To enable you to quickly and easily send relevant information to your potential purchasers, we give you a Tiny URL link to your own advert on the internet which you can copy and paste into your e-mail communications.

We are members of the Association of International Property Professionals through which we also subscribe to The Property Ombudsman’s scheme which is designed to protect both buyers and sellers of property at home and abroad.
This is voluntary membership, and it is because we want to reassure our clients that we will act with integrity and accountability that we subscribe to the AIPP’s professional code of conduct in what is a largely unregulated international property market.
We work closely with respected partners to help our clients access relevant professional help and advice should they need it. Our core partners are:
