Natalia Villendrup has more than 10 years experience in the luxury property sector working in different places in the world including the exclusive resort of Punta del Este in Uruguay, in chic and hip Ibiza in Balearic Islands and in all the Canary Islands, especially in exclusive Lanzarote and in Gran Canaria, where she is now based. Her background has given her a real understanding of how estate agency works in different locations and her experience and professionalism makes her the ideal choice for buyers in the Canary Islands who want someone who is 100% on their side throughout the purchase process.
Natalia made the crossover from selling agent to buying agent after being asked to help a buyer relocating from Denmark. When she started on the property finding process for this client she realised immediately that there was a difference; instead of the usual estate agent approach of listing any property they are offered it was as though she was buying a property for herself and she only reviewed properties that exactly matched her client’s criteria. With this new perspective she realised it was time to move away the from selling side of the real estate sector, with the conflicts of interests, grey areas, lack of due diligence that are common, and in 2016 she began her Real Estate Personal Shopper service, the first and only genuine property finder in the Canary Islands and she underwent training with AEPSI, the association that represents the growing number of buying agents in Spain. She also speaks several languages: Danish/Norwegian, English, Spanish, Italian and German.
The property market in the Canary Islands is very fragmented with hundreds of traditional real estate companies all trying to keep one step ahead of the competition. Properties are often listed with multiple agencies, often at different prices, all very confusing for buyers who have no realistic chance of finding out everything that is for sale. So what should be a pleasurable experience becomes a stressful, time-consuming, frustrating and expensive one.
With Natalia working on your behalf finding the right property in exactly the right location becomes a reality; she is an expert in the Canary Islands market and as property finders are able to access the many properties that are not listed with agents but are privately for sale, nothing will be missed. If a property matches your criteria, Natalia can find it. Although based in Gran Canaria Natalia carries out property searches on all the islands.
