My name is Arno van Vugt and I am the owner of Costa Estates. First of all, I would like to thank you for visiting my website.
Due to the property boom of the last two years, the number of (mostly inexperienced) agents on the Costa del Sol has grown substantially. This enormous increase makes it more difficult to choose the right real estate agency that will help you in your search for property. I hope your visit to our website will make your choice a little easier. For information about our unique and very effective way of working please go to the section “WHY US?”.
I was born in The Hague, the Netherlands and I left my country when I was twenty years old for an uncertain adventure in sunny Spain. Until today I have never regretted my choice. What started as a holiday job in the kitchen of a Dutch restaurant soon evolved into a function in real estate on the Spanish Costa del Sol. Because of my many years of experience, I have built up a large network and lots of knowledge about the coast and its property market. During all my years on the Coast, I have also mastered many languages. I speak English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, French and of course also Dutch.
A while ago, after having worked for several real estate agencies, I have taken the decision to establish my own real estate agency. After being confronted again and again with the poor service of many colleagues I decided it was time to make a change and start for myself. I felt that by simply working hard and being trustworthy I could make a change. Things can be that simple here on the Costa del Sol.
Because Costa Estates is solely a buying agency we can offer all our clients independent and objective advise about their purchase. All agencies on the coast are linked up on the same network and share each other´s properties. Because of this Costa Estates can show you every single property for sale on the Costa del Sol. As we are solely a buying agent it does not matter to us which of the almost 25000 available properties on the coast you purchase and that´s why our advise is always completely independent and objective. In the section ´WHY US´ you can read more about our unique way of working.
