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.

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 .

Hi to all the staff at

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 p rob

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 .

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.

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 put us in touch with an Estate agent, who spoke perfect English,she

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

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

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.

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

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

furniture catologues and advising me as we go along.This will hopefully
continue afterwards as friends.

hands which will guide you through the whole process of Living in

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

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

The valuable work of Living Cyprus has been completely free to us

they have introduced us to a London Money Broker who ensures we

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.

Being one of the purchasers who did not and could not wait 12-18

many readily available properties, we were delighted to have had
a choice when I arrived and over the moon to have found exactly

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

However this meant buying from plans and trusting your developer,

Cyprus and Paphos particularly appears to have potential buyers

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
