Recommendations & Notices

Notario: Never thought I would say this. I have found a really good gestor. His English is good. He understands that the rules here are different to every other country. Most importantly he is aware of the fact that the average customer does not know all the questions. Never mind what the answers are. After owning two houses, many cars and having dealt with all of that he finalized something that had dragged on for many years. Then he told me where to take the work and what the options were.
Juan Luis Avila. Next to the Repsol Station on Torrox Costa. On the ocean side of the road, where there are two gas stations opposite each other. 95 125 4014 Fast, efficient, helpful and understanding.
