Pauline Quirke, Berkshire, UK“Our home in Mallorca had to be private and peaceful. We began looking for a rural hideaway with a view of the Mediterranean, but following a trip to the States we realised we wanted a sea view that absolutely blew you away. The house still had to be private in a quiet area and we didn’t want a lot of land. Finding that on the coast is really difficult as there are so many frontline villas with public footpaths in front. We left the problem in Jan’s hands and finally came over to view just three places. She saved the best one until last, and we bought it!”

Andrew Egginton, Bristol, UK“I was looking for a building plot for a detached villa as my first investment project on the island. Location was crucial as it had to attract buyers in the future. I needed to know I had the choice of the best available plots within the budget in terms of access, views, orientation and proximity to facilities. Jan sourced a great piece of land and introduced me to architects, project managers and constructors. She was of enormous help throughout the process and even found a berth for my boat! The property received an offer on the very first viewing. Jan will be sourcing my next project.”

Kylie & Jeroen Bergman, Amsterdam, Netherlands“Jan came recommended by friends of ours who had already bought a finca in Mallorca with her help. We were looking for a character property in the country and had begun to search online. However, there was never enough information to determine whether something was really worth viewing. Jan’s knowledge of the island helped us focus initially on the right location for the family. She sourced a 200 year old finca for us with awesome valley views. To say that rural properties in Mallorca sometimes go hand in hand with complex legals is an understatement. The law firm are outstanding. She then helped us make alterations and furnish the property in time for our summer break, as well as introducing us to the ideal couple to look after the pool and maintain the house and land in our absence.”

Mary Foxcroft, Manchester, UK “I had my heart set on a two bedroom apartment in the old city of Palma, with outside space. I spent hours online gathering property details but the market was moving quickly & I was nervous of the spanish buying process. Jan was invaluable, she did all the research which meant I only needed to come over for a couple of days. When we viewed the final selection, the speed at which everything happened took me utterly by surprise. She helped me secure an apartment which I would certainly have lost had she not been there but also would never have found as it was with an agency with no web presence which had advertised in a local spanish paper. Palma is a wonderful city, I can walk to the beach in 15 minutes!”

Marc Neal, Arta, NE Mallorca“I was looking for a character property incorporating classic, rustic architectural features, breathtaking views and outside space. Being a tenacious searcher coupled with her personal knowledge of Mallorca, Jan lead me to a townhouse in an area which had not come into the frame. I have fantastic views of San Salvador church, an interior patio and a roof terrace overlooking almond orchards with a view to the country and hills behind the house. As I couldn’t be present for at the final signing with the notary and having complete confidence in Jan, she acted on my behalf by arranging power of attorney.”

Adam Eldred, London, UK   “Being in the property business myself I have long been a believer in the value of local knowledge. When you are buying in a foreign country this is especially vital. As well as getting us into a wide range of properties both on and off market, the real difference which Jan made was all the “added extras” which would have taken us ages to sort out ourselves. She introduced us to lawyers, architects and a PM and took us to the town hall to sort out the local paperwork. We felt very looked after and with her help managed to avoid the slippery middle-men and dodgy contractors you sometimes read about.”

Anthony & Dori Wolff, London, UK“My wife, Dori and I first met Jan in 2001. Not quite sure of what we wanted at the time other than to escape from stressful city life, Jan helped us find the perfect apartment with majestic views towards the mountains, Palma and the sea. Then several years later when we decided to buy a small house and garden in a quiet location, using her outstanding networking skills, Jan succeeded again in finding us a delightful secluded casita in one of Mallorca’s most sought after condominiums. Over the years, we have remained good friends and I have complete trust in her abilities and integrity in the real estate field.”

“We have lived and worked in Mallorca for the last 20 years. We are busy people and really do not have the time to source our next property. However, we get in touch with Jan, we explain what we are looking for, she always understands our requirements and will find us the right property for our next move. No time wasted! We would not even consider moving without the help of Jan and her expertise.”

Val & John Obank, Calvia, Mallorca

“We didn’t know the Palma housing market or how to buy. Jan found a gem with 360 views over the city and the Tramuntana mountains in the distance. It was with a tiny backstreet agency. If we hadn’t acted like lightening, it would have been snapped up”

David Haworth, Stockport, Cheshire, UK

“ProMallorca – Jan Westwood – the ultimate professionals. I have worked with Jan to search for my current house in Mallorca, and would not hesitate to recommend ProMallorca to anyone looking to purchase property in the Balearic islands.”

John Hughes, Calvia, Mallorca

“In Mallorca, we wanted to be surrounded by majestic nature – big mountains, big trees and BIG natural beauty. The opposite of where we live in Amsterdam – intensely urbanised and very flat! Our dream house had to have rustic authenticity with original stones, beams and lots of character. We were prepared to renovate providing the location was perfect and we could have a lap pool. Jan found us two potential properties within a month which were exactly within our criteria.”
