We would like to introduce ourselves to you. We are Dominic and Jane Grimoldby managers of the Almeria Sol business and we live in San Juan de los Terreros.
The Almeria Sol business was started in 2008 & we took over the management of the company in 2012.
We purchased our home in San Juan de los Terreros in 2008 and initially rented it to clients during the summer months. We subsequently moved permanently into our Spanish home in January of 2011.
Whilst living in the UK, Dominic worked in the telecommunications industry and Jane was involved in the estate agency business, specialising in the sale of residential property and also residential lettings. Prior to becoming involved in the estate agency business, she was a legal secretary.
During the time the house was let, we co-ordinated all our bookings personally, and arranged deposits, meet and greet facilities and the associated cleaning of the house between tenants.
When Jane was involved in estate agency, she became familiar with all procedures relating to residential lettings in the UK i.e. meeting applicants and conducting viewings, credit checks and processing applications. In addition, she liaised with tradespeople to arrange various necessary repair work as required. She also carried out regular inspections of properties. She was a Member of the National Association of Estate Agents.
During 2011 we were active in the business with the day to day activities, to enable us to learn the business from the ground upwards.
We took over responsibility for the running of the business from 1 January 2012.
We take great pride in the business & know all the house owners on a first name basis. We also have been active in promoting & expanding the holiday rental side of business.
Currently we manage about 55 properties, with half rented out when the clients do not wish to use the property themselves, thus creating an income which pays for the running costs of their holiday home.
We offer all services which you would expect from management & rental agents & anything we cannot complete ourselves we engage local professionals.
If you would like further information, please ask us.
