Home in the sun
Renew Realty offers expert guidance to find the dream property for those wanting a slice of the high life in Marbella
The sun-drenched seafront, historic old town, luxury villas and dramatic clifftops of Marbella have been attracting high society for decades, with the Andalusian city becoming a byword for sophisticated Mediterranean charm. Add to this the high-end restaurants and array of international golf courses for a thoroughly desirable place to live, which is why Marbella-based estate agent Renew Realty helps those who want to buy into this dream Spanish lifestyle.
At each stage, Renew Realty draws on a wealth of local knowledge and experience. “We believe the journey to finding your perfect property should be a memorable experience. Our curated portfolio comprises the finest, most innovative and inspirational properties, meeting the needs of the most discerning buyer,” explains Jim Muirhead, Renew Realty’s Managing Director. “We have extensive experience in the luxury property market, and expert knowledge of Marbella and surrounding areas.”
While Marbella has universal factors that make it such a great place to live, such as the warm climate and vibrant lifestyle, the facilities and the food, demand is also stimulated by the fact that anybody who spends more than €500,000 on a property without financial assistance receives a Golden Visa, which grants a residence permit and travel throughout the Schengen Area.
Boasting almost 20 years’ experience within real estate on the Costa del Sol, Jim founded Renew Realty with UK-based Renew Group, which runs a land promotion company, interior design business and creative consultancy – bringing together a fusion of talent across property, design and marketing. The directors are backed by a passionate team of multilingual property professionals, who are dedicated to delivering the highest levels of service at every client touchpoint.
In addition, the founders have personally experienced property searching in Marbella, so deeply understand and empathise with the challenges clients can sometimes endure if they are not with the right agent. They listen to clients’ needs and place their enjoyment of the experience above all else. “Clients can enjoy just one point of contact with Renew Realty as we have access to every single property on the market in the area,” says Jim. “We take the time to know and understand the client and their needs, and passionately believe their house-buying journey should be memorable, for all the right reasons.”
Fortunately, Marbella has a stellar range of properties from which to choose, thanks to a constant cycle of upmarket new developments and stylish refurbishments from an array of international architects and interior designers.
Renew Realty guides customers through the intricacies of the Spanish legal system and can recommend lawyers, mortgage brokers and property managers to look after the home when the owner is absent. Every prospective client is given an easy-to-follow buyers’ guide that explains the process in advance.
Customers quickly realise they are in trusted hands, which serves to exceed the expectations of the individual’s house-buying experience. “We recognise that each of our clients is trusting us with one of their largest purchases, which is often founded on feelings rather than functionality. “It is our pleasure to guide our clients to secure their dream home in Marbella and relax in the lifestyle the area has to offer.”
