Clients Fraser Meridies has Helped Find Their Ideal North Cyprus Property
If I needed to sum up in one word what your company represents for me, it would undoubtedly be trust.
When I decided to invest my money into a different country from that of my birth, it was a huge decision. I was leaving behind everything familiar; all the legal procedures, all the building regulations, all the climatic differences and their effect upon a structure, plus the change of life style, the leaving behind of family, the language, and the currency. All these factors represent a mine field to the unwary.
Who helped me circumnavigate the mine field? It was your staff.
Yes, they did the obvious, which any self respecting Estate Agent would do – sadly, not all estate agents do this. They asked ‘What was my budget? What location did I require? What type of property did I want? How big? Had I got a property to sell?’ And so on. They listened.
The staff are led by people who have lived in North Cyprus for almost twenty years.They go far beyond ’signing on the dotted line’. They made me feel not only special, but that nothing would be too much trouble; they would help me in whatever field was needed. And they have done just that.
I cannot speak too highly of them all. To have an organisation behind me with which I felt so truly comfortable, so safe and so valued, is something which is very special. I have had contacts with many estate agents in North Cyprus, but none who gave me that all important feeling of trust.

My wife and I are in the process of purchasing a property in Tatlisu through your company.
Since entering into this stressful process we have found the staff and facilities to have been of immense assistance to us and they greatly minimized our anxieties. They have negotiated on our behalf ,with both the builders and solicitors, and have been instrumental in smoothing over any issues that have arisen. We have had numerous emails and telephone calls updating us and answering our questions.
When we recently visited TRNC earlier this year, your staff were exceptionally helpful and we are grateful for all their input.

We have been visiting the TRNC for about 5 years and in October 2004 began the process of purchasing a villa ‘off plan’. The developer experienced many delays and in October 2006 we terminated the agreement.
We next visited in May 2007, very apprehensive, but still wanting to purchase a holiday home. I had contacted several of the local estate agents with our requirements and had pre-arranged appointments to view available properties.
Whilst walking through the harbour we saw your offices. We explained our situation, and we were immediately impressed by the professional attitude of your staff .
Their time, interest, local knowledge and information along with a clear understanding of what we were looking for caused us to reconsider our plans – and with your guidance of John and Iain we have purchased a plot of land and are building a villa to our own specifications.
We were also introduced us to Distinctive Properties and we purchased several ‘off-plan’ investment properties with them through your recommendations.
We have been back to Cyprus in September and December 07 and most recently March 08. Each time we visit they make us very welcome and do whatever they can to assist – often this is above and beyond normal estate agency practice. For example in September 07 they loaned us one of their vehicles so that we could travel to Paphos and visit my brother without the usual hire car inconveniences.
Their communication is excellent: emails and telephone calls are returned promptly and our enquiries are always dealt with efficiently.
We have absolutely no hesitation in supporting your company and your staff and wish them every success in the awards.

Now that we have collected the keys for our villa in Catalkoy we would like to send this message as a token of our thanks.
We would like to let you know that your staff made the experience of buying our first property abroad more straight forward than we could have ever imagined. Nothing was too much trouble and any questions we had were answered fully. We feel that the whole process was conducted in a professional and friendly manner and that we are still being looked after even after the sale is complete. Finally we feel that we have made new friends.
From the initial enquiry to purchasing my property I can only describe the service I have received as excellent.
I was given invaluable guidance and support in all matters relating to buying a foreign property, such as location, finance, legal issues and language. I certainly couldn’t have made such a commitment without all their guidance.
All of your staff had a friendly but professional manner. Their aim seemed to be client satisfaction – which wasn’t just about the sale; nothing was too much trouble.
At no point did I feel pressurised or obligated to view or buy a property. I was only shown properties within my price range and of the type stipulated. I was also encouraged to consider my decision before committing to purchasing a property.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone wishing to purchase a property in North Cyprus and would describe your company as a company who act with honesty and integrity at all times.
My partner and I came to visit the TRNC in July 2007 with a view to buying a property for retirement purposes. After having looked in several estate agents windows, we chanced upon your company. We were greeted by one of your helpful sales negotiators, who offered to take us around to view property. He stressed that we had no obligation to buy, and we arranged to meet the following day.
We were taken to see several properties and I purchased a villa in Arapkoy.
The team at Fraser & Co were very friendly, professional and courteous, offering an all round package including advice on solicitors, banking and other related matters.
I will continue to employ your services in any future sales and purchases and cannot recommend you highly enough to others. In fact I have recently done so with friends that are also retiring to North Cyprus.
