As follows are a selection of client testimonials from people who have had the pleasure of purchasing a Cyprus property with our help.
I would like to thank you for the excellent service afforded to me by Barbara Dodd and your company. Not only did Barabra give me with sound advice and answer all my questions professionally but she also showed me an excellent choice of properties within my parameters. She put me at ease from the outset and ensured that I felt no pressure in making hasty decisions. I am currently considering one of the properties and should this not work out for some reason or another I will continue to use your company until I find a suitable home in Cyprus. Miranda Kridiotis
Hi Just a small note to thank your company for finding the property of our dreams in Cyprus. We would like to thank Brigitta for all the help she gave us.Driving us round all over the place and finding superb properties.Nothing was to much bother for her. She did not waste time taking us to properties that we could not afford.And all the builders that she introduced us to were very helpful and had superior workmanship and finish to their properties. But in the end after two days looking at numerous properties we found the right property at the right price and the right location. We certainly could not have achieved this on our own,so once again we would like to thank Brigitta for her help and her patience on our visit to Cyprus. Regards, Alistair/Kitty Colliar.

Gregg & Julie Gorton satisfied clients again!!
I contacted Living-Cyprus through the internet along with two other companies with regard to finding us suitable property to look at and possibly buy (we didn't think we would get something on our first visit to cyprus, how wrong we were) I flew out on Wednesday 31st March 04 and arranged to meet Anna on Thursday 1st April at 10:00am outside our hotel. No problem as Anna was twenty minutes early and knew all our details and budget. The day was fantastic and went far too quickly, the houses and plots I was shown were all different from each other and gave me a good idea as to what I was and wasn't looking for. All my questions were answered straight away but the best feeling was that there was 'no pressure placed on me at all'. I was driven back to my hotel by Anna and arrived at about 5:00pm. Anna gave me her card and told me to call if I had any questions. The next day I met another company, it was a disaster, they turned up late' had to stop for petrol as the car was 'bone dry' and showed me only one plot in the centre of Limassol. I was back in the hotel by lunchtime, by this time my mind was made up that I wanted a house in Orokolini where Anna had taken us and which builder I wanted to use. I cancelled my third appointment with the other company and rang Anna to explain what I wanted. Anna took me back to Orokolini on the Saturday (which was her day off) and I met up with the builder (Kyriacos) who showed me some new plans he had just received and also took me round to a similar complex which was being built so that I could get an idea of the size, etc. It was perfect, location, size, and the price too good to go away and think about! I wanted it. A deal was agreed and on the Monday Anna took us to the lawyers (Areti) and the Bank and everything fell into place. We have been kept updated regularly by our lawyer and also our financial advisor in Nicosia (MOSAIC). Everything is done for you. Our builder Kyriacos is a star and will do anything for you, his hospitality is second to none and best of all he is a MANCHESTER UTD FAN. (I got him a shirt with his name on.) We have met knew friends in the village already on our last visit, Gordon & Maureen Mackay who have bought in the same complex and also John Munro who lives opposite and is very helpful. We are looking forward to moving into our new house at the beginning of July and starting a new life in such a beautiful and friendly country Cyprus .
We are so glad we found this company!! What a fantastic experience we had with all our questions answered by professional people. We cannot recommend them highly enough.Our search was made so much more enjoyable. When we arrived we had a portfolio of properties to look at with a lovely girl driving us around. She spoke excellent English and Greek, knew what she was talking about and had the whole trip planned to the last details. Like everyone we had pre purchase nerves but these were dispelled during the meeting with Areti the lovely lady lawyer. Our mortgage was arranged for us and was really simple, we are just glad we met these people. If you are looking for a property in Cyprus then please give these people a call and arrange to meet up with them in Cyprus. You will not be pressurised in any way, you will be shown only what you have specified for them to find for you unless you request otherwise. We were treated to a lovely lunch and discussed all our issues then took the plunge. Cyprus here we come.
Hi to all the staff at www.living-cyprus.com, on the recommendation of one of your previous clients I gave you a call to see about buying a property in Cyprus and the fact that I was unable to go to visit Cyprus was no problem. I quite willingly put my trust in you, in no time, at all, I had my apartment arranged, a lawyer and currency broker all dealt with all by email. Contracts were through quickly and if I hadn't gone down this road myself, I would not have thought it possible without visiting Cyprus and meeting people . I would have no hesitation in recommending others to use your services . I look forward to taking delivery of my new apartment next June. Thank You very much for all your help and services .
Gordon & Maureen McKay
We're just back from Cyprus and wanted to let you know that we managed to get a new one bed apt from the developers you told us about and that we are very pleased with. Could you please let Cris know how helpful Brigitta was and we're very grateful to her for all her help. As you said we were shown what was available within our price range and not put under any pressure to buy bigger or more expensive and allowed to just make up our own minds as to what was best for our needs and budget. With regard to the developer- he was a star and has agreed changes in design to suit our needs at no extra cost and nothing was too much trouble. If you want it and it's possible he is very agreeable to your requests. We had everything tied up with the lawyer within a day and half and so far it has been a very enjoyable experience and we would recommend your services to anyone. We are looking forward to next June when we take delivery. Gordon & Maureen McKay.
I am writing to thank your company and particularly the staff in Cyprus for all the help I was given on my recent trip to Cyprus. As I arrived during a bank holiday week I was really only left with 4 days to find and arrange purchase of a property and seriously doubted that this could be achieved. However your representative Anna spent many hours in Paphos with me on the first day. She had already made appointments with developers, who showed me only the type of property I was interested in, within my budget, therefore avoiding wasting time. At the end of the day I had three suitable properties, the only problem being choosing between them! Anna also remained at the end of the phone for the rest of my stay and provided invaluable liaison between myself and the developer I finally decided to purchase from. Add to these introductions to banks for financial advice and an introduction to an excellent, English speaking solicitor, Areti Charidemou, and you have a complete property service. I cannot recommend using Living-Cyprus.com highly enough. Without them it would have been impossible to finalise all this in a week. THANK YOU! Frances Cole
Teresa & Malcolm Jones
This is to say Thank`s very much for all your help at Living Cyprus. From opening your website last July, to taking hold of our apartment in April, could not have been any easier…… The information you provided us with, was nothing short of superb you were honest, trustworthy and correct. Simple as that! You put us in touch with an Estate agent, who spoke perfect English,she put herself out on our behalf. She took us around the Island looking at assorted properties, then translated all the information from the contractors to us, which could not have been easy, I know? We have now become friends. The solicitor that you put us intouch with also spoke perfect English. Everything we needed to know has been really easy to find out and understand. We have bought an apartment in Cyprus, so now we are looking forward to years of sunshine, in our new place. Thank very much to all of you at Living-Cyprus.com .
Steve & Liz Clark
We first contacted Living-Cyprus.Com in May 03 and many other companies on the internet and in the papers, to find what we thought, were the best companies to meet us on our visit to buy a property. On visiting Cyprus we had chosen two companies to meet us and Living Cyprus was far superior. After the first company showed us properties we were very disappointed and worried that our visit would be a waste of time, but then we met the staff from Living Cyprus and from the start they made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We were shown exactly what we were looking for and in our budget with no pressure to up that. We were so impressed with what we were shown that within 6 hours we had put a deposit down on an apartment. We were introduced to a Cypriot lawyer who spoke very good English and explained everything we needed to know. When we return in October we will be meeting the staff again as they have offered to help us purchase our furniture. Thanks again Living-Cyprus.com for all your help from the start and excellent service throughout. Regards Steve & Liz Clark
Sue and Rod Collerton
Just over a year ago we asked for your help to find an apartment in Cyprus. One day in November 2002 we met your representative who introduced us to a developer who had just what we wanted and the same day she took us to Limassol to meet an English speaking solicitor to start the purchase proceedings. Bearing in mind we have limited time to spend in Cyprus, it was such a help to meet someone who was aware of our requirements and knows their way round in Cyprus. Without your help we would not have known where to have started! Now we have just taken delivery of the apartment and are absolutely delighted, especially now you have sent us photos of the interior and the site for which many thanks. We would thoroughly recommend Living-Cyprus to anyone wanting to buy a property in Cyprus. Best regards, Rod & Sue Collerton
David and Julie McKenna
We would like to thank you very much indeed for arranging a meeting and villa viewing with Susan when we were in Cyprus over the last fortnight. Susan was absolutely fantastic and you should be proud you have a rep of that quality. She has obviously built up great relationships with the builders etc and she was exceedingly friendly and helpful to us. She obviously knows her area and market and did not try the hard sell with properties that would have overstretched our budgets. It was a very enjoyable day out so thank you very much indeed. We did not evntually buy any of the properties that Susan showed us but it was very close indeed between one she showed us and the one we eventually bought. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company and Susan to anyone and you can feel free to use this as a testimonial if you so wish. Thank you once again. David and Julie McKenna
Eric and Brenda
Dear Living Cyprus, Just a little note to thank you all concerned what you have done for us so far. After visiting Cyprus for the last ten years or so we decided this was the place for us in are forthcoming retirement, I contacted LIVING-CYPRUS and informed them of my requirements, We were met at our Hotel and taken to the beautiful little village of Oroclini and we were shown plans and plots of land where apartments were to be built, also projects of various stages of completion. We knew this was exactly what we had been looking for and decided then to pay a reservation fee for one of the apartments. All the legal side of things was left in the capable hands of Areti Charidemou. We can?t thank Living-Cyprus staff enough for all their help in finding exactly what we were looking for. Without them would have been at a loss were to start and I am certain we would have wasted the whole holiday and returned home disappointed. Eric and Brenda from Burnley Lancs.
Living-Cyprus.com have given the highest level of assistance to me in my search for a property in Cyprus. From the beginning all my questions were answered promptly, the information given was relevant to my enquiries and accurate. On arrival in Cyprus I met with Susan their agent who was so helpful and professional.She arrived well prepared with a list of properties within my price range and advised me on the locations within Pafos.Off we went, all the developers met with us and we discussed price and inclusions and completion dates. As I had very little time in Pafos, Susan spent all day with us, returning to sites to ensure I was comfortable with my choice. Needless to say I placed my deposit the next day as I was moving to Limassol for the remainder of my stay. Susan collected me from Limassol during the next week to sign the contracts, using the lawyer recommended, who was excellent. I felt really confident that she would look after my interests. I have returned to England now but the relationship I have with Living-Cyprus .com will continue through out the whole buying process,they will continue to "hold my hand" until the moving day, sending photos of the progress, mailing furniture catologues and advising me as we go along.This will hopefully continue afterwards as friends. I would recommend their services to anyone, you most certainly will be in safe, friendly and professional hands which will guide you through the whole process of Living in Cyprus. GOOD LUCK. Joanne Shiel
LIVING-CYPRUS…….has offered a fantastically efficient service from the start. Having contacted them through their web site they have been friendly and effective in finding me suitable properties to view. Upon arriving on an inspection visit in Cyprus their agents went out of their way to find a property that would suit our requirements. At no time were they 'pushy' but offered sound advice about the whole process. There was no hassle just a friendly efficient service, which made buying a property in Cyprus the exciting process we hoped it would be. They worked hard to support us with good legal advice and made sure that we left Cyprus feeling we had made a great sound investment. Thanks for your help and support, we are looking forward to seeing our property being built and enjoying the beautiful surroundings, atmosphere and people of Cyprus. A very satisfied customer Andrew
Geoff & Rosie Evans
I have visited Cyprus many times since my first visit in 1984 but never in my wildest dreams did I ever envisage actually owning my own beautiful villa here. My partner Rosie remarked that she "felt as if she had come home" when landing at Larnaca airport for the first time in June 2001 and subsequent visits have confirmed this to her. When I suggested buying a property abroad, Cyprus was the obvious joint choice. We looked at properties in the summer of 2002 and decided to return in November to look again. I found the www.living-Cyprus.com web site only 5 days before we were due to travel and filled in the online questionnaire. The day after our arrival we were met by the representatives of the living-Cyprus associate in Cyprus who escorted us around an excellent selection of properties in various locations within our specifications. They were very patient, extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and discussed the pros and cons with no pressure. We fell in love with our eventual purchase in Oroklini and arranged for a pool to be built in the garden. The legal aspects were expertly handled by Areti Charidemou & Associates in Limassol (mostly via e-mail with us) and we came back on 30th January 2003 for completion. Through www.living-cyprus.com we were able to save us thousands of CY pounds on our furniture and electrical purchases by them pointing us in the direction of quality companies that they knew. The developers were also extremely helpful and friendly. I consider myself very fortunate to have discovered the www.living-cyprus.com web site when I did and would like to sincerely thank everyone involved in assisting with our purchase. Geoff
I have just returned from a week in Cyprus that concluded with the purchase of my dream villa and would like to take the opportunity to thank the Living-Cyprus team for a most professional service both prior to and during my visit. All questions (and there were many !) were answered quickly and the knowledgeable advice prevented, I am sure, many hours of stress and heartache. I had considered organising everything on my own and am now so glad that I didn't. The team had prepared visits to various plots and under construction properties that met my requirements and were within my specified budget range saving me many hours of what would have been wasted time and effort. Furthermore I was introduced to Areti, an independent legal representative who is already doing a first class job on my behalf. The after sales service has already proved excellent as my questions have yet to dry up i.e. currency conversion, shipping, property maintenance etc. and as a remote owner the promise of regular photographs, throughout the construction phase, will continue to provide reassurance during the coming months. To sum up, a World Class Service. Regards John

For some years, my wife and I have been looking for 'a paradise home in the sun' and have ventured to many destinations. The majority had plenty to offer but for the most part, left us with a considerable amount of investigative work to determine if the country was best suited for us. When we decided 'to try Cyprus', we were advised to search a dot.com called, Living Cyprus.Com Accordingly, from the comfort of our Scottish farm home, we discovered a very comprehensive inspirational guide of this wonderful island. As one reads the in-depth information professionally presented, it does at times provoke the thought, 'does all of this sound too good to be true'? Cost of fuel; cost of living; tax advantages; access to legal advice; health insurance, and, of course, climate, to name but a few, clearly demonstrates that a great deal of investigative work is already done before you set foot on the island. For our part, we contacted Living Cyprus (UK), as advised, and found them to be most accommodating. Shortly after our arrival, we were able to rely on their valued support. Within 4 days and through the good offices of a registered Estate Agent (highly recommended by Living Cyprus), we were introduced to a company of Land & Building Developers from whom we bought a most attractive house plot in Peyia (west of Pathos) – had architectural plans professionally drawn to our specification, and engaged a quality solicitor who really does look after our interests. The speed and efficiency with which these tasks were introduced and satisfactorily completed were entirely due to the professionalism of Living Cyprus who has the ability to ensure you are their most important challenge. The valuable work of Living Cyprus has been completely free to us as clients and, furthermore, on our return to the UK after 1 week, they have introduced us to a London Money Broker who ensures we obtain the best exchange rate for each tranche of funds sent to meet the stage payments on our house. In true Living Cyprus fashion, the conversion and transfer of funds are completely free to the client and, accordingly, Living Cyprus has not only helped us but has saved us a great deal of money had we chosen to 'plough our own furrow'. PLEASE TAKE NOTE – BE ADVISED – FOLLOW LIVING CYPRUS. Lex and Irene
Many thanks for all the help you have given, everyone we came into contact with was extremely helpful and the work done before hand certainly made things easier for us once there. We have put a deposit on a maisonette out there and are currently making arrangements to transfer the bulk of the money through one of the currency brokers recommended by you. Once again, many thanks for your help.
Dear Living-Cyprus.com I would like to congratulate you on a wonderful service. I have just visited Cyprus for a week to investigate the property scene and was provided with a most outstanding service by Living-Cyprus on housing matters including arranging many viewings and discussions with builders, Chris was a real star. He then brought me to meet Areti Charidemou, the advocate who guided us through the legal problems in Cyprus, if you don't do things correctly, and finally we had a detailed briefing from Roger Brooke on Insurance and some of the pitfalls you find when settling in Cyprus. All of this was without obligation and was excellent in all respects. I like to pass on my appreciation when I receive top quality service, and I can vouch for the services provided by Living-Cyprus to its clients. Well-done Yours Truly Stuart Moles
We enjoyed our trip to Cyprus very much and the service provided by Chris and Anna could not have been better. We were met at the Airport in the early hours of the morning and taken to the Apartment that was reserved for us by Chris. The Apartment was fine for our purpose, particularly as we were set to be out and about all day, every day. Chris arrived and took us to the Paphos area where for the rest of the day and the whole of the following day he, and Anna, introduced, and accompanied, us around property and sites associated with 3 local builders. We were looking to find a site and arrange to have a Villa built over the next 18 months. We were shown some good sites but were not able to be shown examples of completed Villas that we liked. This surprised me as I expected to see lots of gorgeous Villas but find all the best sites already occupied. At the end of day 2, we had seen 1 reasonable Villa with promise from their architect to modify the plans over the weekend for inspection on Monday. The plot available for this Villa was very steep and would have had lots of steps up to the entrance. On Saturday we embarked with another Agent we had booked and were taken to see the Leptos development at Kamares Village. Apparently Chris had contacted Leptos to take us but the other Agent had already booked our names in with them. We were very impressed with Leptos – the build quality was much better than what we had seen and the style of the Villas was in line with our thoughts. The Sales manager promised to come up with some plans to meet our requirements by the Monday afternoon and when we saw these we had a deal. The visit Saturday afternoon to Aristo builders was not successful in terms of plots or properties particularly after seeing the Leptos range. We were sorry that the purchase was not completed through Chris. Had he got in first and booked for us to visit Leptos then he would have got the business. We got on so well with them both that we intend to keep in touch and hope to meet up with them on our next visit in October. Regards from Peter Evered
Myself and my family would like to thank yourself, Chris and Anna, for all the help and support you provided to me before and during my recent trip to Limassol. After scanning the Internet for several months looking for a property to purchase in the Limassol area it was very refreshing and eventually very rewarding to have found LIVING-CYPRUS Web Site. Being one of the purchasers who did not and could not wait 12-18 months for an 'Off Plan' development, and knowing there is not as many readily available properties, we were delighted to have had a choice when I arrived and over the moon to have found exactly our requirements, as specified to Chris. I must just add that the solicitor you recommended, Areti, was, and still is, extremely helpful and reassuring, especially when it came to dealing with the developer. As a footnote, I would just like to say that your very strong advice to visit Cyprus to purchase, rather than purchase from over the Internet or phone, as I was prepared to do, proved invaluable. Best Regards David Neal & family (Kent) p.s. see you in Pafos for a beer!!

We first visited Cyprus 3 years ago and fell in love with the island, but then who wouldn't. One day we knew we would want to go and spend the rest of our lives there. Having researched the possibilities for about the last year we hit on your site and found it an invaluable source of up-to-date information, which we have readily passed onto others. Through your contact and advice we were able to plan a 2-week working holiday in Cyprus, from which we have just returned. We had arranged an appointment with your Cypriot associate Chris who we could not recommend highly enough. He was polite, supportive and exerted no pressure whatsoever. He made it his task to find us a suitable property within our budget. Within our 2 weeks he succeeded in his task and we completed our mission to our delight, and are now purchasing our dream property. It's not every day you fulfil your dream!. Once again, thank you for all your help and I know you will continue to be there on the other end of the line, as you have for so many others. Yours sincerely Kathy and David
Peter and Christine
Having decided we wanted to buy a property in Cyprus early on in the year, we found acquiring information about buying a bit of a task. I was advised by a colleague to visit Living-Cyprus.com, just twenty-four hours before we were due to fly. Nothing to lose I thought so on I went, shocked by the amount of information on this superb website I contacted them immediately. Everything we needed to know including contact numbers was listed. Within twenty-four hours of having arrived in Cyprus we were met by a Living-Cyprus (Cypriot) representative, who arranged for us to view properties that day. After giving him our budget and type of property we required, we found exactly what we wanted, signed a contract and an appointment with a Cypriot Solicitor was arranged. By the end of the week we had achieved our mission, on returning home the advice has continued regarding paying for the property through a currency broker, which compared with the Bank saved us ?500 on our first payment. We are delighted and highly recommend this website. Peter and Christine (Fylde Coast)
I am looking forward to my permanent move to Cyprus in early 2003, all thanks to using the services of Living Cyprus. They have helped me every step of the way, from finding an excellent Estate Agent and solicitor, helping me book flights and pointing me in the right direction for transferring of currency. They have always been very prompt and friendly in responding to my various questions and pointed me in the right direction with any problems. It is a great relief to know that they are there for me, both now and in the future. Their 'link' pages are also very helpful. I cannot recommend them highly enough and I know that without their help, I would not be planning my move. Lecou
After research and checking this site over a period of 4 months, we visited Paphos in May and managed to buy a relatively new resale – these are rare and I spent 4 days solid visiting developments and some very poor old properties. An associate of Living Cyprus called Chris (Akis) from Limassol assisted by doing the legwork and finding suitable properties. All the developers were able to offer properties newly built in the next 12-18 months. However this meant buying from plans and trusting your developer, as you would in the UK. Cyprus and Paphos particularly appears to have potential buyers outstripping the available properties and prices appear to be rising. I checked the local press and drove around Paphos. Obviously properties go up for sale daily and like wise sell. The only way is to come to Cyprus and visit as many agents and developers. Many agents appear to advertise the same properties or properties which sold 5 years ago! We used Chris to assist us find a property in May – he was very polite, courteous and professional and managed to remind me of my original housing request and not get carried away in to thinking I would not obtain a property. Please note he cannot magic up properties into thin air with in your price range! But he'll ensure you see properties suitable to your needs – if they are available. Best of luck to you all in finding a property – you'll need it!
