" We wanted to buy an apartment in the area of Estepona and came from Switzerland for looking at some objects with a local real estate agent. We realized very quickly that he didn’t had knowledge of the market and the capability to understand what we was looking for. Therefore we changed real estate and we came in contact with Casa First. The first person we met was Sarah, she picked up our wishes and organized some appointments leaded by Rebecca who immediately understood what we wanted. Due to her extremely good knowledge of the region and the capability to understand what we was looking for, we could inspect several apartments corresponding to our wishes within a few days. We decided to buy one of these apartments and Rebecca immediately organized a lawyer, who arranged the contract etc. As we moved in water, electricity, internet, painting, some refurbishment and cleaning of the apartment was done. Rebecca and Elena helped us sorting out our open questions, wishes and needs. We had to go back to Switzerland so a good communication with Casa First and the lawyer was very important. We had an open, uncomplicated and extremely fast communication via WhatsApp and mail during the whole process. All our questions and wishes were sorted out. Nothing was too much. Rebecca declared „Yes we aim to please“. This aim was fully fulfilled and we can highly recommend Casa First. "
" We first started looking at properties in Spain in 2017, we had finally made the decision to actually ‘live the dream’. We thought we knew exactly what we wanted - then we were introduced to Casafirst! Becky has immense knowledge of the area, she actually listens to your requirements and is honest and informative about the little things that you may not of considered. The entire team made us feel confident and no question was left unanswered however trivial it may of been. We cannot thank you enough, we are extremely happy in our beautiful home. Your professional but kind approach and caring approach deserves five stars. Michelle "
" We purchased through Casa First about 5 years ago, we found Becky really helpful, as she spoke Spanish and knew the Urbanización’s and local areas well. Lots of information on local charges, council/town hall info, hospital and doctors, and best restaurants. Buying was a thoroughly easy process from start to finish. We are lucky we went through Casa First. "

" We were recommended to meet Rebecca as we were considering the options of improving our existing house near Estepona or finding an alternative. Over a period of nearly 2 yrs Rebecca patiently took us to numerous properties & although these met the criteria we had given her they just did not “float our boat! At no time did she pressurise us or make us feel uncomfortable about the amount of time she was spending on our behalf. Finally the right property came on the market, we liked it straight away & Rebecca skilfully negotiated a deal for us & found us a great lawyer to finalise the deal. At the beginning of this process we gave Casa First our existing house to sell, there was no shortage of viewings but offers at or close to our price were hard to find. There were a couple of false starts but a buyer was found at a realistic price, surprisingly the sale went though during lockdown. We think Elena probably had more involvement in the sale of our house, she was brilliant, no nonsense, straight talking, very professional. Estate agents get a fair amount of criticism & are the butt of many jokes but we only have positive comments to make about Casa First. David & Susann Cook "

" I first met Rebecca on a scouting trip to Spain when I had booked a number of viewings with different agents. Unaware that one agent could assist me with any property, I soon became aware that some agents were pushy and would take you to anything on their books rather than what you were looking for! Not Rebecca and the team at Casa First – they quickly understood exactly what I was looking for and I’m sure I was one of those “difficult” clients as my list of expectations were very large and not a lot of compromise – very fussy! With her patience, her knowledge of the area, the fact that she organised the legals’, the NIE, the complete package on my behalf and the ability to find what I was looking for we managed to secure a perfect apartment after a couple of trips over although I had put offers in during my second trip but had to wait until the third visit to secure the property that was ideal and at no time did I feel pressured to “sign on the dotted line”. I would highly recommend Casa First to any person looking for a property on the Costa Del Sol over other agents as not only can I trust and rely on the team to look after my apartment but me too in their hand holding and assistance throughout the purchasing process. Not only do Casa First get back to you immediately you enquire they inform you of the areas and the suitability for your needs therefore to find the right quality of property to fit anyone’s needs I would recommend Rebecca and her team so that no time is wasted on other Agents.

" Casa First found our beautiful house for us, on the beach in Estepona, over 5 years ago and they have looked after it ever since. Their time, effort and attention to detail have meant that, even though we are many miles away, our house is cared for to an extremely high standard. We are always delighted when we arrive and we can just spend our time enjoying it rather than sorting out problems. Whatever our requests and concerns Rebecca and David have always responded immediately and reassured us that they can resolve any problems that have arisen. Their dedication to looking after our property as if it were their own has made the purchase of our house a joy, rather than a worry. We have no hesitation in recommend them most highly and are forever grateful for their friendship and support. "

" " I would like to thank Elena for helping with the sale of our house. The staff were very easy to work with, very knowledgeable and with many years of experience of the Costa del Sol. They were able to meet all my expectations and would highly recommend Casafirst to anyone wanting to sell or buy a house. A big thank you to all of you at Casafirst. " "
" " Hi Rebecca We are so pleased that we were able to get an offer accepted on the Townhouse whilst we were there. Thankyou so much for spending all that time with us- it was really appreciated - we got to see a really wide range of properties which highlighted loads of different areas of value for us - and not so. In the end it came down to location rather than views - as with our budget and requested rooms - both clearly wouldn't be possible. Great to meet up with Dave too - he needs to make more tea! " "
" " I just wanted to write to share some feedback on the Casa First team. I have known Rebecca and Elena for 3 years and they initially helped me to find an apartment to purchase and then supported me on the journey from acquisition to renovation to seeking tenants. To be honest I don't know how I would have managed without them More recently Elena has been an Angel. She has handled most things from building works, key provision for tenants, receiving furniture, emergency repairs and arranging cleaners - nothing is beyond her reach. I have found Elena and team to be knowledgeable, personable, professional and always with a smile and warm response No hesitations in recommending them to all " "
" " Casa First, and in particular, Elena, was the only estate agent in the Estepona area to take the sale of my distressed property seriously. They worked hard on all aspects of what was a really difficult sale at times and overcame every legal and logistical obstacle we faced. Not only that, they managed to find cash buyers fast, and did far more than they were obliged to for me many times over. Flawless in many languages including Spanish and English, and with an impeccable local knowledge of both suppliers and the culture, there is absolutely no doubt that Casa First live up to their name as being the first, and actually in my opinion, the only port of call for anyone looking at property services in the area. I will be recommending them to others and will use them exclusively if I require further services in the future. " "
" " I don't think you could meet a more genuine hard working Estate Agent in Costa Del Sol. Rebecca is fluent in Spanish which really helps. She had fantastic contacts to help you through buying a property- her direct hands on approach has a very caring feel to it. Rebecca will willingly show you a diverse list of properties in your price range. If it's on the market - she will find it. I would highly recommend Casa First to anybody who wants a smooth consistent helpful approach to buying a house in Spain. " "
" " We had an excellent experience with Casa First. Last summer we were on holidays in Estepona and wanted to explore the estate market in the region in order to buy a house or an appartement. After a few experiments with other agencies, we met Elena at Casa First who understood what we were looking for and guided us through multiples visits. We had a first heart stroke for a house at Bahia de Estepona but the time to check with our bank, the house was sold. Elena tried to intervene to give us a chance but we needed definitively a bank agreement to go forward so we lost the deal. Elena was very patient and always ready to organize new visits and we visited a lot more houses during our stay. The last day, I visited a house again, without my wife who didn't believe in it anymore, and this was exactly the house I expected, a house in front of the beach with facilities and for a reasonable price. We went back to the house, again with Elena in the afternoon and decided to buy it. Elena helped us negotiating with the seller and we found a deal just before leaving. We finalized the transaction back in Belgium and we had daily contacts with Elena and the lawyer she recommended to us, per mail, whats'app and phone. As we lost some time in discussing with our bank, some complications appeared one month later with the seller who tried to renegotiate the deal and cancel the sale. Again, Elena helped us sorting out the problem and we finally manage to officially acquire the house a couple months later. After the finalization of the purchase, we have had a few more contacts with Elena to organize emptying the house of left furniture, find a local contractor for the renewal works of the house, talk about renting services. Thanks to Casa First, we are now happy owners of a very nice house in Spain. " "
" " Casa First made my dream come true ! Since 3 years we were looking to buy in Spain first in the North of the country than around Estepona. Our weak point was a total lack of reliable contact person on the field. The day we visited Casa First I knew that we knocked at the right door and that they were going to help us. And they did. First of all Elena immediately and fully understood our requirements and respected our budget. And from that starting point, even when we were back home in Brussels, Elena kept on sending us properties with her comments. When we found THE property, we were adviced with the offer and they never tried to push the price upwards. The 10% fees ALL INCLUDED (with lawyer expenses) were strictly applied at the end. Not one single bad surprise. They took care of everything with their lawyer who is very professional. Last December, with the terrible floods, I just gave a phone call to Casa First and Rebecca went to check our property. As simple as it is just to be nice. Now we are enjoying our Spanish property in Casares on the beach thanks to Casa First ! So we highly recommend to contact Rebecca and Elena for their professional services but also their patience and their kindness !!! And your dream will come true ! " "

" " We have worked with Casa First not only once but several times as we have changed and upgraded our house in Spain. Rebecca is amazing - honest, funny, kind and she really knows her stuff. After 20 years on the Coast I could not recommend a better agent. And I am happy to speak to you. " "

" " We have bought a property from Rebecca when we wanted to move from Southern France to Spain. Her service was amazing and the language skills that her team has are so very helpful. She has been on the coast so long - you do not need to look anywhere else for help when you buy a home in Spain. " "
" " Becky and her team go the extra mile before and after the sale! " "
" All went smoothly. Highly recommend! "
