My wife Nicola and I bought our property in Lanzarote in December. Throughout the whole process Gareth and the team at Foxes we’re absolutely fantastic!
I couldn’t recommend them enough. They guided us through every step and a lot of bumps along the way. Nothing too much trouble and every issue dealt with and solved. The biggest thing is we trusted them and that was justified!!
Thanks Gareth, Matt, Cristian and Alejandro.

Absolutely amazing service from start to finish (and beyond!). Kept us totally informed all the way through, not once did we have the need to chase anything or follow things up, even though we gave Foxes an almost unachievable completion target having been messed about beyond belief directly by a Spanish Bank (nothing whatsoever to do with Foxes). We absolutely cannot recommend the team at Foxes highly enough, the service was superb. Thanks in particular to Cristian, Mat & Gareth - without you guys we'd not have made the completion date! Thanks again, will NEVER use anyone else. Unfortunately Trustpilot only allows 5 stars as a maximum, but would like to give more!

Well pleased with the service...

Helpful company who kept us well informed and advised. Efficient and well organised so home purchase went smoothly despite a short timescale. Thank you

Did everything they said they would in a professional, helpful manner . I have a long standing relationship with my bank and the people who work there. It was important Foxes did nothing to damage that relationship and true to their word they were courteous yet thorough when defending my claim, so much so that the staff at my bank commented on the professionalism of the Foxes staff. I will use their services again and have already recommended them to my friends and family.

These guys are very professional

These guys are very professional, speedy and do what they say they will do. They are a company I would recommend.

Foxes are a great company to deal with!

Very pleased with the outcome Foxes achieved for us. I am based in the UK and had attempted to deal with the Spanish bank directly but without success. Foxes made the whole process very easy and I have no hesitate in recommending them. Their fees were very reasonable.
