Dreams come true
Owner Trish, from the Green Isle, originally came to Cyprus in 1999, having taken a year out from University. The plan was to work for a summer in Cyprus and travel for the rest of the year, and return to University! But like many others, she fell in love with paradise and never left …
After her first summer job working in a bar, she took a position as a rep with First Choice for a couple of years. Whilst there Trish was offered a position at Giovani Developers, kickstarting the beginning of a long and passionate love affair with Property! Seven years working at Giovani were followed by another seven-year partnership at Island Homes when Trish finally achieved her dream to qualify for her own real estate licence and in 2018 Trish opened Blue Surf Property!
I’d just like to mention, unusually, Trish took the Real Estate Property Law exams in the Greek language, becoming the first ‘non-Cypriot’ to ever pass the exams and become a registered Estate Agent in Cyprus, and so to be more precise, Trish is actually the only British/Irish Registered Estate Agency in Cyprus! which explains her total commitment to Property … Here’s a link at their Property for Sale
Over a lovely coffee, Trish explained, “we absolutely love our job, because we get a buzz out of helping people find just what they want, after all, it’s a big moment in our clients’ lives”. She continued; “First of all, we like to make sure everything is in order to sell the property, and our success is built around our honesty. We are 100% transparent and don’t hide anything from the buyer. If the property has faults we will point them out!! And then we offer solutions on how to put them right, having built solid relationships over the past 18 years with local companies that we can trust and recommend”.
Trish continued; “Tom, our photographer takes plenty of good quality, professional photographs, from all the right angles, then we use the accuracy of laser technology measuring equipment, and a qualified graphics designer to add detailed, coloured, floor plans to the portfolio”. Trish then showed me the new Virtual Tours on video, which means you can look around the properties before you visit personally.
Blue Surf also keep in constant contact, and work very closely with local banks and well-established developers for exclusive projects, using their extensive network of contacts to attain the best properties available on the real estate market today, including the prestigious development at Ayia Napa’s new marina … Check out their Facebook Videos here.
Growing yearly, their excellent crew of eleven, speak several languages including, Greek, English, Polish, and of course Irish, work very closely with clients mostly from Cyprus, Great Britain, Lebanon, Dubai, and lots of Scandinavians these days, so it’s truly an International set up. Most recently adding Lauren in March 2021, Karen, also from the Green Isle, who joined in February and Mandy joined the admin team in July 2021, and in October 2021 Racheal joined us in charge of Communications and Public Relations.
Trish explained; “We have just expanded our offices in Protaras to accommodate our growing team. We also have an associate office in Dubai, as many British ex-pats living in the UAE are choosing Cyprus for the long term” “In addition, we recently added ‘Adriana’ based in the UK to Liaise with our UK clients, and btw, their clients’ testimonials are highly commendable!
Trish continued, “because of the way we build relationships with our clients who are making investments in Cyprus, we understand they will eventually need a trustworthy property management service, and as that became more and more evident, Blue Surf Property now also provides an extensive list of long and short term private and commercial rentals”.
Word of Mouth
Trish told me “It must be said; the majority of vendors come to us from word of mouth, and our new listings sell very quickly these days. We’ve recently broken all records on completion times from deposit paid to transfer and completion!” Reiterating “and that gives us such a buzz coz it’s such a big thing!”
I discussed with Trish the current increase in Europeans moving to Cyprus. Trish said “we’ve always specialised in relocations, where people are trusting us to help them move their whole world and we take that responsibility very seriously, right down to helping them organise their container shipment and of course help with registering for health services, transport of their cats and dogs and anything else they need to start their lives in Cyprus” … “we also love to stay in contact with our clients making them friends for life and often inviting them to catch up at our team BBQs at the back of the office”
With the growing trend to invest in Cyprus, offshore clients can be assured of a reliable, experienced and most importantly professional service, with an extensive portfolio of properties, businesses, commercial properties and Land for sale or rent.
