Angela Taylor: The Real Estate âFace of Spainâ
Angela and her team took the decision to take a stand thereÂ 3 years agoÂ for the first time and found themselves as the sole representative for estate agents âEast of MĂĄlagaâ. The inevitable success and raising of profile meant that they could not resist the temptation to return this October and so they organized a larger stand and employed more staff to cope with the anticipated influx of people wanting to buy and rent in sunny southern Spain.
The managing director of the exhibition approached Buy A Home Spain to ask Angela if she would consider being the âFace of Spainâ at their forthcoming show. When asked why he had chosen this particular agent above all the others from the various regions of Spain, he responded by saying: âIt was a mixture of reasons. Firstly, I was very impressed with their website which clearly caters for not only sales but also long-term and holiday rentals and secondly, we couldnât help but notice the professional way in which her team set up their stand and how they operated to make it the busiest at last yearâs show. Add to that the feedback we had regarding not only the way in which they handle the whole process from initial enquiry to finalizing the sale or rental, but also the after-service given to help people settle in their new environment overseas.â
So this resulted in Angela sitting on the Panel of Experts in the Advice Theatre, not only answering questions about the pros and cons of living, buying and renting in Spain, but also adding a touch of glamour, by being the only person dressed in traditional Spanish costume.
When asked how this yearâs show compared with 2011, Angela replied by saying: âWe were overwhelmed by the response at our stand because people were queuing up not only to speak to âthe lady from the Panel of Expertsâ but also to someone who has had personal experience of doing what they were planning to do.â
This has resulted in a list of potential buyers coming over to Spain for property inspection trips â and â even bigger plans for Buy A Home Spain at the next âA Place in the Sun Liveâ exhibition to be held in London at Olympia from 12th to 14th April 2013.â
Angela Taylor, from Buy A Home Spain bought her first holiday home here in Torre del Mar some 12 years ago and then made the decision to move here permanently in 2006 with her husband and son. Just 6 years ago she then started her estate agency business which has gone from strength to strength, resulting in the recent accolade of being chosen to represent Spain on the Panel of Experts at the UKâs largest and most successful overseas property exhibition, âA Place in the Sun Liveâ, held at the NEC in Birmingham.Â Â
