To most of us 'value-added' has unpleasant associations with taxation! However in the case of the service that Jacki and Gary Mudge offer together with Catherine of Luna Alta Properties it is just an entirely appropriate description.
Where else would one find a single estate agent or property finder with the patience to support a three year search, viewing well over 50 properties looking for the perfect home for a couple whose idea of perfection constantly changed along with the budget?
The range and depth of their knowledge and contacts in the area proved invaluable and was shared unstintingly.
Jacki, Gary and Catherine provided sound advice on location, narrowing it down to specific roads and plots. Inevitable questions regarding a range of issues such as future possible development on neighbouring land were either flagged up or answered by systematic checks with the local authorities, all undertaken by them, and we felt that our interests were paramount and were being uniquely safeguarded at every turn.
They have a holistic approach to house purchase and helped us through each stage of the buying process beginning with our necessary legal registration in Spain (N.I.E) through banking, lawyers, architects, builders and even ongoing property maintenance.
If one of the most stressful times in life is supposed to be house purchase and moving, they contrive to turn that into a pleasure by a combination of their skill, knowledge, professionalism and tireless good humour.
Thanks to what we assumed would simply be a short summer break staying at the lovely Finca Montgo some three summers ago, we now own a beautiful house not so far from our first and very auspicious meeting with Jacki and Gary.
It is impossible to recommend them too highly. They are worth every penny of their fee which is, even more happily, the responsibility of the vendor.

What was intended to be a quick week away in Spain, turned into a life changing experience for us. We had visited Javea for many years staying in villas, but imagine our surprise after booking Finca Montgo, it far exceeded all our expectations. Gary and Jacki Mudge were excellent hosts and talk soon turned to our retirement which was imminent. We kept in touch with Gary and Jacki, and duly returned in 2015 to initially rent for 6 months and thus getting a taste for living in Spain, excellent advice given by the Mudges. Jacki had also arranged a rental villa to ease the process for us in the UK.
It wasn't long before we realised we wanted to make Javea our home and with the help of Jacki, Gary and Catherine Moon of Luna Alta Properties, we drew up a list of our criteria of the sort of properties and locations we wanted to live in. They made the search enjoyable and fun, and after not too long we found our 'forever' home. We had constant advice and support from Jacki, Gary and Catherine, guiding us through the buying process, with estate agents, solicitors, banks etc.
All in all it was a relatively stress free process, we are now happily living in Javea and Jacki, Gary and Catherine have become very good friends and a part of our lives.

Jacki & Gary, in conjunction with Catherine from Luna Alta Properties helped us to find our perfect holiday home in Javea in 2016.
Our initial contact with Jacki & Gary was as a result of booking to stay at Finca Montgó, whilst searching the local area of Javea for a suitable holiday home for us. When we mentioned that we were property searching, the offer was made to assist us in our search, and I can honestly say that we are very glad that we accepted the offer!
The whole process was incredibly easy and much less stressful as a result of the help that we received from Jacki, Gary and Catherine, and what would have been a scary prospect, turned into an enjoyable one, that as a result of which, we have met some new friends, as well as finding our ideal home in Javea.
Initially, Jacki asked us to provide her with a list of our requirements in a holiday home and she then drew up a list of properties for us to view, that would meet some, or all of those criteria. Jacki's knowledge of the local area was invaluable and saved us wasting a lot of time, looking at properties that would have been in totally the wrong area for us!
We then visited Javea and viewed our shortlist of properties, accompanied at all times by Jacki and Catherine and are pleased to say that we found the house that we were looking for!
From that point on, what could have been a very stressful process, was made much easier as a result of excellent recommendations from Jacki, Gary and Catherine, of solicitors, banking facilities, surveyors etc, all of whom have been excellent!
Jacki was always contactable via email, to provide advice and support during the buying process, as was Catherine, and negotiating the spanish housing market was so much easier as a result.
We are extremely happy with our choice of home In Javea and can throughly recommend beautiful Javea as a place to make either a permanent or second home and the services of Jacki, Gary and Catherine in making that choice.
