Having decided to buy a villa in Moraira we started to engage with several local agents. We spoke to Jo at Watkins Wilson early on. Jo listened very carefully to our needs, challenging our assumptions to positive effect, and set about a careful selection of villas for us to view on a week long visit. Other agents had been plying us with irrelevant properties, whilst Jo's approach led us to finding exactly the right villa and making an offer by the end of that week. Subsequently the team at WW walked with us through the whole process of buying negotiation, selecting a great lawyer, finalising the formalities with the Notary, to moving in. WW is a private business solely in Moraira with 18+ years of local experience and this really shows. Eric, Richard, Jo, Anna, and Helen provide a caring and professional service, and this made us very comfortable and confident in our move to Spain. We are delighted with our new home, thank you WW!

Jeg vet ikke hva jeg skal skrive. Det eneste jeg vet er at mine opplevelser er utelukkende positive:)
Translation: I am not sure what to write. I only know that my experience has only been positive.


A big thank you to all at Watkins Wilson for helping us sell our villa in Moraira. It has been a difficult time for us and I can't thank both Jo and Ana enough for all the help they gave us. They both spent a lot of time making sure everything went smoothly. I can recommend using Watkins Wilson for both buying and selling property. They definitely give you a personal service.

Dear Ana,

At the time we bought our apartment via your agency and we were very happy with the service. The information, the support...everything felt right. Also the fact that we could do the whole thing in our own language, made it all very easy for us. When we decided to sell our apartment, there was of course no doubt of which agency to give our apartment in exclusivity to: Watkins Wilson in Moraira. Also now everything went very smoothly. We would like to thank Anne-KarinĀ  Barmen especially for her total effort.

Jeanine and Willy

Just sold our villa a few weeks ago with W&W. We had already sold a property 10 years ago with them and were impressed with the professionalism and excellent knowledge so when it came time to sell again they were our first port of call. Ana was a joy to work with on the sale as she made the process seem so easy with her lovely approach...

There are always lots of questions to ask and Eric answered all of them very quickly by return email or telephone call...

W&W are a great team and are the best people for buying or selling property.

Carole and Tom

I would like to say a huge thanks to all the Team at Watkins & Wilson.  

Selling a property in Spain can be quite a daunting and stressful experience, choosing the right agent is the most important decision you will make.  That was made easy for us by Jo, who impressed us with her warm and friendly attitude but very factual and professional approach to the selling process.  Along with Ana who has such a vast knowledge of the Cumbre area and a hugely positive outlook, which is so reassuring, if there are any hiccups along the way.   The write up for our apartment was first class along with the photos, we did not need to change a single thing, thank you Eric and Richard. 

I would without hesitation recommend Watkins & Wilson for anyone thinking of selling or buying a property. 

Thanks and best wishes Annie

Hi to all the team at Watkins Wilson. We would like to say a huge thank you to you all having just purchased our lovely apartment at pueblo de la Luz.  Thank you jo for your patience and time showing us the properties and negotiating successfully for us.  Thanks also to Eric for help and advice regarding bank, money transfers and legal representation which made what could have been a daunting and stressful process run so smoothly. Finally to Anna for finishing the process on the day we got our keys.  We would highly recommend Watkins Wilson to anyone interested in buying in the area having found them to be both friendly and professional.

Anne Ballard

When we decided to check out a move to Moraira we sent an email to a number of estate agents in Moraira, explaining not only our criteria for the desired type of property etc, but also informing them of the fact that we were only going to work with a single pro-active company. Some responses were, let’s be kind…..limited, with some others simply replying with a link to their respective web sites, and others where our email must have been lost in the ether! However head and shoulders above everyone was the prompt telephone call and subsequent discussions with Jo Edwards. We explained our plans, timelines and budget, and that as we hadn’t actually visited Moraira before, (another story) we would need to rely on her trust, guidance and professionalism. When we arrived to view properties Jo had selected a number of properties over and above the list we had sent to her. Cutting a long story short, we eventually purchased a property from her list, not ours! Throughout the process Jo was incredibly helpful and she worked very hard to understand our needs, and not just simply try to “sell us a house”. We both agree that Jo is not only a credit to herself, but also a huge asset to Watkins Wilson, and have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking to buy a property in Moraira. Thanks for finding our new home

Jo J Gerry & Sara Pentleton

We successfully purchased our Spanish bungalow in Moraira on the 1st October of this year (2018). The sale went through smoothly due to the professional, honest and friendly services of Eric and Richard. The previous owner had bought the property from Watkins & Wilson and when after 11 years of owning the bungalow he wished to sell it on, he gave the exclusive selling rights to this reliable real estate team. I can see why. If we ever needed to sell our new home in the future, then we would do exactly the same. One could not be in safer hands.

Best wishes, Jan and Paula

Our experience of dealing with Watkins & Wilson was very good. The staff were very helpful and friendly when we were buying our apartment in Moraira but at the same time professional. We would certainly recommend them.

Dorothy & Derek Spencer

Watkins Wilson have been fantastic throughout the sales process. I was kept updated throughout in relation to viewings and offers and was supported by the team from start to finish. I would thoroughly recommend their services!

Many thanks and best wishes Gill

Hi Jo,

Hope you're well and selling lots of houses, thank you for looking after us and finding us the right villa, not at all what we thought we were going to buy. But after showing us a couple of the shocking villas we chose off the internet and listening to our needs you matched them perfectly. Just goes to prove nothing beats local knowledge and the personal touch.

Philip, Sandra and Katie Chamberlain

Dear Watkins and Wilson.

Back in May we bought a house on Fresnos in Cumbre del Sol. We just want to thank you and especially Ana for an outstanding service. From my first telephone call, when I spoke to Ana and arranged the first viewing, and until the finale agreement, and we got the keys for our dream house, Anas service, help and kindness has been amazing and more than We could imagine. No matter when we wrote her or called her and no matter what question we had, she was able to help us. She even took care of our little girl so that we could concentrate on viewing the house. We have never experienced such great service. We really want to recommend your real estate company. We are so pleased with the help and advices we got from Watkins and Wilson. If you have any danish or German customers , don’t hesitate to contact us, if we in any way can recommend you to them. Thank you for great services.

Kind regards, Michael and Ann Bettina Mathiesen Denmark.

Recently your agency sold our villa after we had been living in Cumbre del Sol for 14 years. However your friendly team made everything painless. The viewings were arranged and overseen by Ana and she was there to take us through to the final sale, always on hand to offer support and guidance when we required. 

We would have no hesitation in recommending Watkins and Wilson for a thoroughly professional estate agency service.

Vivienne and Tony Sullivan

After a long search for a villa in Moraira with the biggest Real Estate agent in Moraira, we had decided to continue to rent and stop our search because our budget was not enough for what we wanted. When we returned to Belgium we came across the site of W&W and found several properties we liked the look of. After having started in English, we received an answer in our own language, flamish, to all our questions. This was good enough for us to take a plane back out again so that we could have a look and we had 4 days with Ana to look at all the properties. When we had found our favourite, we started the negotiation and after 4 days we had an agreement. We have now purchased our small modern dream villa with a pool at an attractive price thanks to Ana and the team of WW. WW is a smaller agency but very efficient and we can recommend WW to anybody. No pressure and very good information, time and good contact with the sellers. Ana recommended us a Dutch speaking gestor Marike den Dulk who guided us professionally through the buying process.

Ludo and Nadine

Having both bought and sold with Watkins-Wilson we would recommend this outstanding firm to anyone. Highly professional, efficient and so friendly - their knowledge of the local market is second to none. Thank you to Jo in particular for guiding us through what is usually a stressful process - we really appreciate all your advice and help!

Stephane and Anna

Watkins and Wilson recently sold our villa in Moraira. Jo who we worked very closely with was extremely professional and kept us informed through out the whole process. She only brought serious buyers to view so our time was not wasted. We were supported at all stages in the process - from the initial marketing of our home through to support on completion day at the notary. I could not recommend them highly enough.

Sonia and Alan Jenkins

Dear Eric

We are very thankful to Jo Edwards, and WatkinsWilson in general, for immediately understanding what kind of house we were looking for, so that our search became much more focused and we were able to get our dream house.

Dirk and Marianne Van Veldhuisen
Dear Eric,

Just a note to convey our thanks to your staff at Watkins-Wilson for all the attention you gave us during our negotiations on the purchase of our lovely property in Moraira. Jo and Ana could not have been more helpful.

Thank you all very much, John and Irene Bagdonas

I wish to thank the staff of the above for the efficient way in which they conducted the sale of my property, which was carried out quickly and professionally.

Regards, Anne McNelis

Many thanks to Jo Edwards and all the team at Watkins Wilson for all the help and support we received when buying our new home in Moraira, from the very first viewing to receiving the keys they were always on hand to help and advise, they made what could have been a daunting prospect so much easier. We would recommend this company to any one looking to buy property in Moraira.

Thank you Jo from two very happy people

Regards, Tom & Grace

Selling our villa after 32 years appeared to be a daunting task.

But dealing with Watkins and Wilson proved to be a smooth and seamless operation with continuous up dates on progress.

Thank you for a job well done.

Norman & June Ford

Watkins Wilson were highly recommended to us by our very good friends who have lived out in Spain for many years.They had dealt with Ana on many occasions and so through Ana we met Jo Edwards she was extremely friendly and warm and the villa we now own was viewed to us by Jo who went on to negotiate with the owners with much success.to which we are extremely grateful.the whole process from start to end went through very smoothly.Jo was at all times very helpful and continues to be.we consider her a lovely friend.

The whole team at Watkins wilson are all incredibly helpful and very professional and we couldnt recommend them highly enough.


Dear Ana and the team of Watkins Wilson

We would like to thank you for making the process of selling our house in Moraira so smooth. The information we received up front, the feedbacks after the visits with potential buyers, the negotiation…everything was treated in a very correct way and in a friendly atmosphere. Should we need your services again in the future, we would definitely contact you.

From the family Van Dyck – Sterckx

We were very satisfied with Watkins Wilson in Moraira when we sold our apartment on La Cumbre del Sol. Our experience is that the staff is very professional, has good expertise and has experience and we were positively surprised when they in such a short time, were able to find us a buyer. We can warmly recommend the agency for buying and selling a property.

Maire och Peter Andersin

Watkins Wilson made the sale transaction very simple. They had a ready buyer for the type of property being sold and had contacted me out of the blue to see if I was willing to sell, having not listed the property for sale with them.

Their representative, Jo, did an excellent job of keeping both parties informed during the process and was herself very helpful, so I do not hesitate in recommending them.


We had wonderful service during the sale of our little house, we were delighted with the presentation, with the dedication Jo put in to find us a buyer, and at every step we received the very best help and advice.

We would recommend you to anyone, and offer sincere and grateful thanks to the whole team.

Maybe I should add, we have been home only a few days and are missing Spain in general and Cumbre del Sol and Moraira in particular, so now talking seriously about returning to live full time. We may very well be asking for your services again!!!!!

With thanks once again and very best wishes to you all.

Ilse Greenhill

We bought our new home away from home this summer via Watkins Wilson. We had not planned to buy a apartment but were in Moraira on our annual holiday. Although it was a spontaneous purchase, everything felt very safe. We got the best help from our estate agent and that she understood our Swedish was an additional plus. We highly recommend Watkins Wilson and agent Anna-Karin Barmen.

Hanna Mattsson and Bjorn Lantz

Buying a property in Spain seems easy.

We've all watched A Place in the Sun; you make an offer via a quick telephone call , it gets accepted and that's it.

In reality it's nothing like that, you need to consider Banks,Notary,Legal Representative,Money transfers, the fact that your holiday is over and your dealing with people via emails and telephone. All of which can be daunting and stressful.

In the UK, you need to manage all of these elements yourself.

In Spain our experience was totally different; Watkins and Wilson coordinated our purchase with professional efficiency, they were so pro-active and extremely friendly.

They constantly updated us throughout the purchase process, advising on banks, legal reps etc.

They are the cog in a well oiled wheel.

I would advise anyone thinking of buying in the area to solely use Watkins and Wilson, no other estate agents can compare to them.

Stuart and Debbie Walsh

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Watkins and Wilson who helped to sell our villa in the Paichi area of Moraira , it sold within weeks of listing with Watkins and Wilson and at the full asking price , what more can you ask for!

Many thanks

Philip and Janice Earnshaw

To clients of Watkins Wilson, we would like to express our thanks for the polite, prompt and professional service that we received when selling our apartment in Moraira.  The company acted swiftly and dealt with all aspects of the sale with great care and skill.  We could not have wanted for a better service and thoroughly recommend the company and its workers to all future clients.

With thanks again,


Dear Eric and Richard,

We purchased our new home in Moraira, March 2017.

The service we received from Selling Agents Watkins Wilson was excellent, we found the service both straight-forward and friendly.

Buying abroad was a daunting thought, however the reality was much simpler than expected with the team at Watkins Wilson guiding us through each stage.

The co-operation between Watkins Wilson and our Solicitor was done in good spirits and in an efficient manner. The transaction was completed very quickly and without any complications.

In the unlikely event that we ever decide to sell our property in Moraira I will without doubt be using the services of your office.

I have no hesitation in recommending Watkins Wilson to anyone purchasing or selling a property in this region of the Costa Blanca.

Keith Forster

Dear Jo,

Having visited several Estate Agents in Moraira we were immediately impressed by the professionalism of Wilson and Watkins. Every contact we had was handled promptly and efficiently. We have also been very pleased with your recommendation of both the Solicitor who acted in our purchase and the Architect who is acting on the reform of our new house. Many thanks once again

Kind regards, Carole Cheatle

Dear Jo and Eric

We wanted to drop you a note to thank you both for all your support during the recent purchase of our property in El Portet. 

We are delighted with our new home. We feel that Watkins Wilson were with us every step of the way. You ensured that we navigated the entire buying process with confidence and trust.

Far more than other Estate Agents we approached, you took the time to help us work out what we really wanted (and more importantly didn't want!)

You have been challenging and honest about what was possible and we felt you only directed us to properties that would be genuine contenders. The fact that you are specialists in Moraira and know your market so well is a big plus.

We are also appreciative of your ongoing interest in our progress including the introductions to reputable local professionals and trades people. 

You have made our entry to the Spanish property market stress free and enjoyable. 

We hope to show you the finished results of our refurbishment project in the near future. 

Until then,

Best regards

Maxine and Christopher 

Dear Eric,

Very many Thanks to you, Richard & The Team for all the help & assistance given these last few months in selling our Spanish property.
What at first appeared to be somewhat daunting has proven to be very straight forward, in no small way due to the practical & enthusiastic support of Anna & Jo.

At any time with so many properties available to the market attracting buyers is paramount, we believe that care taken in producing a pictorial folio which was then incorporated into a rather excellent Website presentation,has proven to be invaluable.

Coupled with the professional approach of Jackie Watson the whole process has been virtually stress free, no mean feat.

We would strongly recommend The Watkins Wilson Team to future buyers or sellers.

Once more many thanks.

Our very Best Regards,
Audrey & David Kennedy.

I wish to record my thanks and gratitude for the service and help given to me by Watkins Wilson, Moraira. Their help through the long twelve months to complete the sale of my property was first class. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to buy or sell a property.

A J Parkes

A challenging time,made easier by the professional,supportive and friendly staff,at Watkins&Wilson.Communication was good,and I would personally thank Jo,Anna,Eric and Richard for offering me help,over and above the call of duty.

I shall miss them all.

Says it all for me,thanks again,hope to see you soon

Kind regards, Peter

Hi Eric – as you are aware the sale of my property has been completed and just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your help whilst we have had the property in Spain – this goes further than just the property dealings and not sure if you recall but the assistance you gave me in acting as translator in filing a police report following theft from our hire car was very much appreciated and enabled us to recover the loss via insurance.

It has been very much mixed feelings in selling the property given how much we have enjoyed our time in Spain and if we decided to buy in Spain in the future it would be in Moraira and we would undoubted look to use your services again.

Kind regards and once again thanks to you and your colleagues.

Regards, Phil

Hi Jo,

We have been coming to Moraira and the surrounding area for the last 13 years and staying with English friends who were residents.My wife and I fell in love with this part of Spain and decided at some point we might invest in a small apt/villa when I retired and had more time to enjoy it.In 2015 whilst holidaying there we did some window shopping and that's when I first met Jo Edwards at Watkins Wilson who was very helpful, understood our situation ,was not pushy at all as we were not in a position then to buy.I took her card and 12 months on we were back on holiday and made contact.After discussing preferred locations and budget we viewed 5 property's and decided within a couple of days ,in fact the evening before coming home! Throughout the whole process Jo's advise and recommendation re solicitors,Moneycorp who obtained a very good exchange rate in the current climate and a local bank to open an account with was excellent hence completion the week before Xmas on target.
A very good experience and relatively straight forward process helped by in particular Jackie Watson and her team who handled all the legal areas for us.

All in all would have no hesitation in recommending Jo and Watkins Wilson for there professionalism and knowledge of the area.

Kind Regards, Peter and Debbie

Dealing with Watkins and Wilson was painless and the staff always friendly. When you found a buyer I was kept informed of progress regularley. A big thanks to all at the office and a Happy New Year to all.

Regards, Fred Ayling

Following the sale of our property on Cumbre del Sol, we commenced a general search of the market place to try and find an alternative villa situated close to Moraira centre.

Being a qualified property consultant and Chartered Surveyor, myself, we commenced the search direct but it became very clear that we would be better served by engaging specifically with one local property agent to guide us through the purchase process and to ensure we were aware of all opportunities within our specific requirements.

We hadn’t used Jo at Watkins & Wilson before, but Jo came highly recommended by a couple of our friends who have recently purchased through Watkins & Wilson and after a number of viewings, we decided to engage with Jo specifically, who then took up the reins and searched high and low on our behalf.

Jo fully engaged with us and spent time getting to know us and indeed, more specifically, what we were genuinely trying to achieve with our next purchase.

Jo’s professionalism and in particular patience, was second to none and Jo assisted us all the way through to completion of our new home.

My wife and I would have no hesitation in recommending Jo, and indeed the entire team at Watkins & Wilson with reference to either disposal, or more particularly, to assisting with a purchase.

Many thanks Jo, we are materially indebted to you.

Alistair and Stacey Sarre

We recently purchased our Spanish holiday home through Moraira based estate agents Watkin Wilson. I must admit, my wife and I were a little anxious to start with, but after meeting, viewing and negotiating with Watkin Wilson’s representatives we felt more at ease as the process continued. Their expertise within this area of Spain certainly showed and from our time of viewing the property to completion, only took 2 months without any issues. They also suggested 3 different lawyers to use and we selected Mr Manuel Bru Llobell from their list after hearing other recommendations about him within the Moraira area. I must say he was very good / professional and better than any solicitor we have used previously. All in all, we had a very good performance and experience from both the estate agent and lawyer.  

Mr S O’Brien, Switzerland

We would just like to say how very impressed we are with the excellent service we have received from Watkins Wilson whilst purchasing our property in Moraira. We would particularly like to mention the professionalism of Sales Negotiator Jo Edwards for whom nothing was too much trouble. Whilst moving to Moraira and seeking a property was an exciting prospect it was also quite daunting but Jo helped us to find the perfect property for us within our budget in a very short space of time.

Whilst we are positive that Watkins Wilson deal with many clients in our situation we were never made to feel unimportant. Nothing was too much trouble, in fact one of the directors went out of his way to deliver a spare set of keys to us that we didn't even realise they had.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Watkins Wilson to anyone looking to purchase a property in Moraira and the surrounding area.

Christine & David Baker

To all the team at W&W, we would like to thank you all for your help and guidance whilst searching for our holiday home in Moraira.  Ana was both professional and caring in guiding us through our first purchase in Spain, making a stressful time a lot easier.  The customer service was top class, with all enquires before, during and after being dealt with efficiently. 

I would not hesitate in recommending W&W to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. 

Kind regards
Andrew & Joanne

We have just recently completed the purchase of our holiday home in Moraira through Watkins and Wilson. From start to finish they have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always on hand. They have a wonderful ‘Can do’ approach and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use them again. Our thanks to Eric, Richard and Ana for helping us make our dream come true, we are extremely grateful for your help and support.

July 2016
Andrew & Lisa Ludlow

Dear Eric and Richard,

Thank you very much for you very professional approach and result achieved.

From the very beginning I was sure that your agency will successfully find a buyer and organize a deal.

No-one of 3 other agencies can even be compared with your's - you are the best!

Kind regards, SK

We had wanted to buy a property in the Moraira area for some time but we were unsure where to look for our budget and what we really wanted for our money. We were also nervous about purchasing in a new country with all that entails.
However, the team at Watkins and Wilson were there to guide us through every stage and it made the whole process seem really simple.
We were taken to different places and viewed a variety of properties so that we were clear on our options. They gave us advice and help without ever making us feel that we had to make a decision and when a potential purchase collapsed, everyone went out of their way to find us another property just as perfect.
We are now the very happy owners of an apartment that is perfect for our requirements and we can’t thank Watkins and Wilson enough.
If you are looking for an estate agent that is professional, efficient, caring and above all trustworthy then you need look no further and should we choose to move at some stage in the future we wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Jo Savage and Mel Collins

Our experience of selling our property with Watkins Wilson was a very good service, with prompt and professional feedback from initial viewings to completion.  We would recommend Watkins Wilson to anyone wishing to sell their property in the Costa Blanca area.

John and Alison Logan

It began on the 11th February.  We received an email from Jo Edwards, Watkins & Wilson Estate Agents in Moraira, whom, for reasons best known to Jo’ remembered that a couple of months earlier we had shown some interest in a property, well enough interest to ask my nephew, who lived locally to have a look at it.  We were advised that the couple following the nephew’s visit had had their offer accepted and the property was off the market.  Jo’s email of the 11th Feb advised this sale has fallen through. were we still interested?

My wife and I discussed this Friday evening over our usual Fish and chips, resulting in me having a lengthy telephone conversation on Saturday morning with Jo’ who was now back in the UK and only 40 miles away. This was a very honest and truthful discussion on the quality and condition of this property; remember neither my wife nor I had actually seen this villa. From my memory of my conversation with my nephew who said it was tired and in need of a redec’ inside and out, Jo absolutely agreed, saying at the same time the garden was out of control.

My wife and I discussed it further.

On Sunday, we contacted Jo’ at home, she advised that we should make an offer, to at least set this ball rolling, we did so and later Sunday afternoon our offer was accepted.  Jo was now “Holding our hand”

By Wednesday 16th we had signed the purchase contract, emailing these to and fro a solicitor arranged again by Jo, and paid a deposit.

The solicitor advised that completion would be on the 29th when funds would be necessary.  Again Jo came forward with a suggestion to use Moneycorp to transfer funds to Spain which we did on the on the 19th Feb’ and in doing so saved us approx.. £4000 as the rate shifted against the pound over the weekend.

We arrived in Moraira at 1.00pm on the 24th and met with Ana, Sales Consultant from Watkins Wilson, at 3.30pm to have a look at our new villa, we were both delighted as it was far better than we expected.

Money corps management met us in Moraira on the Thursday to arrange the transfer of the funds over a cup of coffee in the town square, very civilised, unfortunately funds due to arrive on Friday arrived too late on Monday, Eric Watkins and Ana got on the phones and re organised through the solicitors, bank and public notary to move the completion date to the 1st March, the bank remained a bit of a pain at this though with some original thinking, everything was eventually sorted.

Ana accompanied us to the Notary’s office on the 1st March (I doubt we would have ever found it without her), and completion was achieved in under 40mins

Without the professional help from a truthful and transparent approach from Eric Watkins and his team we would never have been the owners of a beautiful home in Moraira. Their help, they tell me, doesn’t stop here, so watch this space???!

Chris Robertson

Watkins Wilson worked closely with me through the whole sale process understanding my needs from the outset. As things progresssed they provided clear advice on the direction of the market and repositioning the property to find the right buyer. During the final stages of the sale itself their support and determination ensured that the sale completed in the required timeframe.

Overall I had a very good experience of selling my property in a difficult marketplace. The staff at Watkins Wilson showed a high degree of professionalism and knowledge in the housing market and I would recommend to anyone looing to sell in Moraira.


I have to say that of course we did enquire of other agents prior to entrusting yourselves with the sale of the above . Besides the fact that your office is enviably placed right in the central square , with so much activity around, we were impressed with the very positive attitude and friendly disposition of your staff.

The morning after we had first called at your office (Friday), Anna called to give us a valuation and we then signed the sales contract . On the following Monday we had a viewing and an offer which crystalized into a sale over the next two days with the initial deposit paid.

Unfortunately , the sale fell through but over the course of the next 3-4 weeks and several viewings a sale was agreed . This proceeded to completion without a hitch.

At every stage Richard ,Eric or Anna kept us fully informed of the situation and I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend your firm to friends. A very friendly and professional job.

Roy Neale

When we were first ‘dreaming’ of owning our own villa in Spain we wandered in to Watkins & Wilson and were instantly greeted with genuine friendliness. We were relieved to find a relaxed atmosphere and no pushy sales pitches. This alone put us at ease and made way for further enquiries and questions. All answered fully and honestly.

The following year, when we had finally decided to make the leap and start our serious search we knew exactly where to go. It had to be Watkins & Wilson. It didn’t matter that our search pulled up properties held by other Agents – the team at Watkins & Wilson were happy to arrange all the viewings – W&W were ‘our’ agent and our guide. 

It was an intense search – and we were tough customers. Jo, of the W&W team, patiently arranged and hosted over 30 meetings and viewings over a 2 week period. All perfectly timed and smoothly executed. We went in with our tick lists and clip boards… constantly in turmoil between our heads and our hearts. As a couple we were surprised to find we wanted different things and compromises had to be made – but Jo kept us focussed and helped us decide on the important factors of our property search. She helped us realise our dream and find ‘the one’. Just a few months after our search had started we found ourselves sitting in our own beautiful villa in Moraira. A property we are totally in love with

I completely and wholeheartedly recommend using Watkins & Wilson for your property search. Honest, friendly, patient, focussed and reliable. The whole team go above and beyond to ensure you find the property for you. We truly couldn’t be happier.

Nicola Grimes

My wife would have no other Estate Agent in Moraira to sell our villa than Watkins and Wilson and how right she was.

A personal family run business, we were delighted how Watkins and Wilson were so tuned in to the current market.

Their professionalism is out on its own and we can honestly say every aspect of our sale and after care service was brilliant.

JS, Moraira

W and W were one of two agents that we asked to sell our holiday home in El Portet.They found us the purchasers and then supported us through the negotiation,inventory and completion process.It was Ana who introduced the purchasers although everyone at W and W had been very helpful in marketing, viewing with prospective purchasers,advising on price and state of the market and attending at the notary’s office for completion.In other words a complete service.

Thank you Ana and your colleagues Jo,Richard and Eric. We appreciated your advice and assistance and have no hesitation in recommending W and W to anyone wishing to sell.

Lyn and Morley

We found the service from Watkins Wilson exceptional. They are not only incredibly professional, thorough and informative, but they are also approachable, friendly and honest.  Jo was our main contact and we also gained insight and advice from the others in the team. It was our first property purchase in Spain and they were very supportive, sharing as much knowledge on the process as they could. We never felt pressured and appreciated that they understood what we were looking for and how important the purchase was to us. We will whole heartedly recommend them and look forward to keeping in touch with the team, as we enjoy our time in Moraira.


We started off viewing properties with a number of agents but quickly prioritised Jo at Watkins Wilson. Others kept overselling the villas whereas Jo told us exactly what we needed to know but then let us discuss between us if it was the place for us or not. We ended up buying through Watkins Wilson and they were also helpful with recommendations on making the legal process smoother. Every time we had a question they got back to us immediately.


We sold our villa in Moraira in November 2014 after a very short period of marketing via W&W,(thank you Ana!) everything went along quickly and efficiently and we were really pleased to have everything finalised just before Christmas. Our intention was to downsize and keep a smaller 'bolt hole' in Moraira, because we have had a home there for over 10 years. We had no immediate plans to buy, but Jo kept us in mind and notified us as soon as potential properties came up........and in March we bought a great apartment; we are excited to be going out in a couple of weeks to set up our 'new home away from home'. It's been an exciting few months and relatively stress free, which is thanks in no small part to the whole team at W&W

C & T (2015)

Watkins Wilson were one of 3 estate agents that I approached in Moraira when we decided to look for a property there and we were very pleased with the service that they provided. Jo listened to our requirements and organised a very good selection of properties for us to view, helping us focus on what was important to us. She then supported us through the purchasing process, and provided lots of helpful advice on what we needed to do to complete the purchase.

Their support has continued right through completing the legal finalities, helping to smooth the process for us.  I would certainly recommend them to others and we are very happy with our villa.


We found Watkins Wilson provided a very good professional service. Quick and efficient, helpful and friendly.

When we initially put the house on the market, W&W immediately contacted the most likely buyer who viewed the property and put in an offer after about 10 days. He ended up buying the property and the sale was completed within two months.

Watkins & Wilson were recommended to us by a friend in Moraira and we were very pleased with his recommendation.

Jo at W&W took the time to get to know us, what we were looking for and worked within our budget whilst still encouraging us to look at some alternatives. We were glad she did.

A number of viewings were arranged for us over a set period during our visit to Moraira including properties on the market with other agents. W&W worked with the other agents to make our experience as simple and efficient as possible for the timetable we had, so that we could view the properties we wanted to without the requirement to register with multiple agents. This was a bonus for us.

W&W not only found our perfect property, but they also helped us through the whole process including advice on the necessary documentation, banking and solicitors required. We have now completed and are starting the process of settling into the Moraira community in our lovely new home. We would have no hesitation in recommending Watkins & Wilson.

Buying the house through WatkinsWilson was very simple and easier than I had imagined it would be.

The guidance given at the initial stage of what house buying in Spain entailed and the outline of the process and people we needed to contact / employ was very useful. The contacts you gave to arrange the legal side of things, money transfer etc. were very useful and they all helped make the purchasing go smoothly.

To whom it may concern,

We would like to say that the service given by W & W, was excellent.

The initial discussion about price was knowledgeable about the market place, so we had a realistic value to work on, events indicated the accuracy of that.

The display of the property showed it to its best advantage, without over egging.

The market was at a difficult stage, the visits they arranged were positive in that the people who came were not just out for a look, but serious about buying and the property was within their range.

The visits were managed and accompanied well.

The general assistance, discussions and advice were excellent and informative, even to the accompaniment to the Notary office.

We would have no hesitation in recommending W & W and all their staff to would be sellers and buyers alike.

Not sure if we should mention individuals but Jo looked after our sale with a high degree of efficiency and professionalism, difficult sometimes to be objective when outside of the workplace we are friends.

Thank you all for the service and we wish you all the best for the future, we will be back in Moraira next June !!!

Thanks Jo.
See you soon

We had planned our viewings of property in the Moraira area well in advance of our two week stay in July of this year, involving a couple of estate agents there, one of which was Watkins Wilson, whom we knew from their long - established presence in the town.

The villa which we have ultimately purchased was offered by them for sale and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have found our dream home through such a friendly, efficient, helpful and professional agency.

There is a distinct "personal touch" about the owners and staff at WW and we were made to feel very welcome at all times which is invaluable when undertaking such a significant transaction in a country where the customs and practices of house purchase are so different to that which we know.

Every question was dealt with professionally and with patience and understanding.

The process was made as stress free as it can be and the after-sale support has been excellent. Now that the process is complete we feel like we have a trusted source of advice for all property matters. If we ever sell, then we would certainly use WW to handle matters for us.

Ian and Tracey Billing

I was so very pleased to hear from you since it gives me the opportunity to express our appreciation for the way in which each of you handled the sale of our house to a successful conclusion. Not only so effficiently but with such good humour. Deposit monies were collected and paid without delay. Ana took care of us throughot the final day of the sale, all without a hitch which was an interesting and pleasant experience.

I enjoyed my, seemingly, daily visits to your office, hoping not to distract you from the business of selling houses but you always seemed pleased to welcome me. I even imagined myself as being part of your sales team or as you will remember, a car salesman accompanied by the delighful Ana in an attempt to sell my beloved NX 100 to her female friends.

If and when I return to Moraira I will be there on your doorstep waiting for you to welcome me back.

Wishing each of you every success and happiness in future years.

Bernard And Misako

During our search for a holiday home in the area of Moraira/Benissa, we came across met with the same enthusiasm. During our stay, we finally found our ideal villa. Also during the buying process, we were guided by her (applying for the NIE-numbers, finding a gestor and also at the Notary's office). We have had excellent service and we still have...

Ann and Peter Huybrechts
Very proud and satisfied owners!!!

We bought our villa through Watkins Wilson and were very pleased with the service we received. While it was a professional relationship, it was clear that they also genuinely valued their clients during the buying and selling process. This personal service helped to smooth what to us was a very different buying experience from the UK and they guided us through the whole process with helpful advice and a smile. We would certainly recommend Watkins Wilson to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a villa.

Dick Leonard – purchased May 2007

Dear Ana, Richard and Eric,

This is finally to say thank you for all the help you gave me in purchasing my property on the Cumbre del Sol – I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to many sunny days overlooking the Mediterranean [views are fantastic]. I will recommend anyone buying a property in this area to visit your offices in Moraira where they will find a good selection of properties for sale at the right price and all the help they will need in making a successful purchase - especially in the good hands of Ana.

Robert Livesey – purchased February 2011

We bought our villa in El Portet in July 2009 through Richard & Eric from Watkins Wilson in Moraira. Over one weekend Richard invested his time showing us round a carefully shortlisted selection of villas that met our specification. Following a couple of 2nd viewings we decided on the chosen 'one' and from that moment onwards Eric handheld us through the complex process of buying a property in Spain from putting us in touch with solicitors, surveyors, banks and how to obtain our NIE. We are delighted with our wonderful home in Moraira and were delighted with the service we received from Watkins Wilson and would strongly recommend them.

Jo & Simone El Portet

We were looking for a villa in Spain in de region Moraira. We selected some villas and Wilson and Watkins (Anna) showed us the properties. After half a day driving around and looking to our selected properties Anna informed us about a new property which was just on the marked and probably would fit to our expectations. We went looking at this property (twice at the same day) and bought the house at the end of the day. Watkins and Wilson helped us smooth through the rest of the process which was very helpful because we are not reside in Spain.

Alex and Mari Peelen – purchased February 2011

We have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Eric and Richard for the last 3 or 4 years and we have tested their patience with requests for information about the state of the market in Moraira, for which they have always given us their best advice.

Following my father’s death in 2008 we placed his villa for sale with them in what was to prove to be the start of a very difficult market, and they managed to get us a firm offer within 7 days and I think that the entire sale transaction was completed within 6 weeks. They helped us to deal with the authorities and services and without them I don’t think that a sale would have been effected so easily.

We would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone wishing to buy or sell in Moraira, and they are the first people we turn to for impartial advice.

Phil & Yvonne Austin

When we first saw the house of our dreams in the window of Wilson and Watkins, little did we know the journey we were about to embark on, and how smooth that all turned out to be! We didn't end up buying that house, but with the help and patience of Eric, Richard and their staff, we bought a wonderful new house in Moraira. Just one of the personal touches we received, was Eric picking us up from our hotel at 7 am to drive to Denia to get a NIF for Brian. We had to wait a good couple of hours in a line outside the offices (in February), but that was the first obstacle cleared in the purchase. The help and recommendations we received during the purchase procedure were invaluable, and when we were handed the keys just 3-4 weeks later, what a feeling! We cannot say enough about the service and understanding we received from W&W.

Penny and Brian Barden

We bought our villa from Watkins Wilson 18 months ago, and from start to finish Richard and Eric made the whole thing unbelievably, fantastically easy.

The scary legal process, the language barrier, picking us up and driving us to the appropriate offices to finalise the sale, arranging a plumber to be at the villa the day after we moved in because I needed adaptations for my disabled husband, even helping us to buy a car!!! Nothing was beyond them.

More importantly, is that even now 18 months later, I know without a shadow of doubt, if I have any problems, or need any advice about anything, that they would help me.

Susan Barnard – purchased May 2010

Watkins Wilson sold our house quickly at a time of great difficulty in the property market. They were very professional in every way and we are delighted to recommend their services, as we have done already on a number of occasions.

Blanca and Roger Gumbrell

We found dealing with W&W an easy and stress free process – with sound advice and support all along the way. It made buying a property in Spain easy and swift.

David Morgan and Michael Rose

We have found Eric and Richard very helpful in promoting the sale of our property. They have spent much time and effort in presenting and showing our property to its best advantage and finding a buyer in what has been a most difficult time for the market for which we were most grateful.

N. E & P C

From the very moment we entered Watkins Wilson Eric, Richard and their staff worked tirelessly ensuring that we found our dream in Spain. This continued after the sale including help with the local schools. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company’s services.

Paul Smith – purchased July 2008

We were looking for another villa in Moraira and were particularly impressed by the service and attention to detail of the staff. They actually listened to our requirements and only showed us properties which fully met our specification. After agreeing the purchase they continued to monitor, in some details, the sale and this enabled us to have trouble free purchase of our new villa. The confidence we had in Wilson Watkins was especially important to us, as we do not reside in Spain.

John Penney – purchased July 2009

We would like to thank everyone at Watkins Wilson who have made buying our property a happy and stress free transaction. Their knowledge of the locality and the properties available made the decision to buy an easy one to make. All of the information was made available to us to make our own decision with absoloutly no pressure at all. Overall a first class service.

Mr & Mrs Shepheard – purchased November 2010

I approached Watkins Wilson to sell my existing house and purchase another in Moraira as their office is in a good central location. Having met them all I was very pleased with my choice. They are very easy to deal with and very professional in their approach to business. (If they promise to phone at a particular time....THEY DO! ) They blended our requirements to a range of suitable houses for viewing all of which were excellent saving us lots of time looking at unsuitable properties. Watkins Wilson helped smooth the subsequent purchase making the complete process easy and stress free. All in all an excellent choice of partner to sell or buy a home in the Moraira area.

David Storey – purchased August 2011

During our search for a property in the Moraira area, we particularly appreciated the professionalism of Watkins & Wilson. Rather, Watkins & Wilson has never been an office to us, but a team of dedicated professionals who took a keen interest in our needs and desires. After a first, near perfect match, fell through, Anna and Eric contacted us proactively and personally to let us know they might have a property to suit are needs. They took into consideration every item on our wish list, including the do not’s, and came back with an opportunity we would not miss. The personal, hands-on follow up never felt pushy; my spouse and myself always appreciated speed and reliability of the responses to our (deluge) of questions. Every issue raised or encountered during the process was dealt with correctly and in due time. A special word of thanks for the way they liaised with local partners: both the surveyor as the lawyer they recommended (on our request) proved to be outstanding and reliable professionals.

Frank and Nathalie Verkinderen-Putteman – purchased June 2011

We were successful in selling our villa in El Portet through Watkins and Wilson and another agent, and we also used them for the purchase of our present villa in Valle de Portet. We found them at all times to be courteous and very helpful. They were more than willing to go the extra mile whenever required and we have no hesitation in giving them full recommendation to all our friends. They are very knowledgeable about the property market in this area and were able to guide us to the perfect place which is suiting us just fine. A very good point in their favour is the full and glowing descriptions they give to properties on their books.
