It is slightly more than 10 years that we have interacted with Roula Rouva on property matters. Throughout we have received professional service combined with enthusiasm, a solution orientated approach and definitely some extremely innovative methods of assistance.
Three properties later, I can entertain you on several anecdotes relating to the purchase of each one.
We are from South Africa, therefore needed special screening and permission from the Minister of Defence in Greece before we were allowed to buy property in this country. This exercise was carried through by Roula Rouva over three years - the full gamut: files going missing, the lawyer giving up, even going to Athens and tracing the file in the Ministry! She also came up with many other solutions for the bond we wanted, all included in the Agency's service.
Still some quick adjustments were required with legal changes just days before actual transfer and notary recording. Roula assisted again and personal tax registration was effected. After four years of hurdles we bought our selected property. Which, efficient as always, she managed to rent out on a long term contract.
Since a beautiful plot with a great view became ours, off course through the rrcorfurealestate agency, where we dream of building a small retreat to recharge human batteries. This remains a bridge to 'dubbelcross' , one needs to have a challenge to work on!
Most ingenious of all, we bought a fixer-upper via the Roula route. Knowing and trusting her, we did not view the property but took her assessment, recommendation and home video as base to do the purchase. She did everything after our 'Yes' - arranged with the lawyer, selected a contractor to do the work, etc., etc. This property is now registered to us and we are waiting to occupy as soon as the water connection is established and our furniture arrives from South Africa. It is conveniently located to meet our needs and fit our circumstances.
We feel well taken care of, knowing that we can count on the agency's support and assistance should any unforeseen development occur.
There is no doubt in our minds that the recent award won, European Property Awards, is truly deserved and trust that similar recognition on a macro level will be forthcoming. The sky is the limit!
