What our clients said…
We are delighted to recommend Veritas Homes and its owner, Andre dos Santos to anyone thinking of buying a property in the Mojacar region.
We purchased a home using his skill, judgement and extreme care back in 2007. Since then Andre and his family have become close friends.
Andre was attentive, thorough and resourceful during our purchase and his many years of experience, great local contacts and fluency in Spanish really set him apart from the other local agents we spoke to. What really worked for us however was none of this but his genuine honesty, friendliness and always having the feeling that nothing was too much trouble. In our view Veritas really are the go-to agents and we would never purchase another property in the area unless it was through Andre.
Thanks for everything.
