Meet the Ideal Property Spain Team

I'm from the UK but having travelled the world working in the casino industry for 15 years, Peter and I decided to settle in Alhaurín el Grande in 1999. My son, Max, was born in 2001 and my second child, Ideal Country Property (now called Ideal Property Spain), was started in 2007. Apart from overseeing the Ideal office and playing taxi to my teenage son, I manage to find time to take Pilates, Zumba and Step classes. I love spicy food (especially Thai) and am quite fond of a glass or two of cava!

Originally from Brighton in the UK, I left in 1989 to travel the world and have lived in the Bahamas (where I met my wife Sharon), British West Indies, Hungary, New Zealand and Russia before settling down in Spain in 1999. I have been with Ideal from the very beginning in 2007. My main role is in sales but I really do a bit of everything. I love being in Spain and sampling all the different restaurants but I also love to travel and experience different cultures. My favourite pastime is relaxing at home with my family and a cold beer.

I am one of the owners of Ideal but work as part of the sales team. I’m from the Midlands originally but like so many UK citizens my young family and I decided in 2001 to change our quality of life and flee England for a sunny lifestyle in Spain. I fell into real estate as I needed something to do when we arrived and found that I really enjoyed it. Since 2007 with my business partner Sharon, I have had the pleasure to work with a great group of people from all over Europe at Ideal. I have 3 real passions in life which are cooking with local Spanish produce, playing paddle tennis with my many friends, and going to the gym. I’m also an avid follower of rugby and cricket.

I've been with Ideal since 2008 and work in admin and IT. I'm from Nottingham (UK) originally but am also Spanish and have been living in Málaga province since 2001. I speak English, Spanish and British Sign Language (and my Welsh is very rusty!). I have a love of music, technology, sci-fi, languages, the almost lost art of pub quizzes, MG classic cars, Cadbury’s chocolate (without nuts), and I play acoustic guitar. I prefer Apple iPad over Android but Samsung phone over an iPhone!

I've been with Ideal since 2010. I deal with both the rental and sales side of the business. I have been in Spain since the age of 6, so as you can imagine, I speak Spanish perfectly and people often think I'm Spanish! I was born in Yorkshire but left at the age of 2, so I can't really remember anything about “home”. My father is English and my mother is American so I have dual nationality, which is a bonus. I love travelling and only take time off work if I have plans to go off somewhere. I’ve been to many places and have many more corners of the world to discover. I also love music and going to concerts, although I actually don’t play an instrument (maybe one day, as I love the piano!)

I'm originally from Switzerland, born in La Chaux-de-Fonds and I came to Andalucía in 2004. It has been a great adventure for me, especially at first when I didn't speak a Word of Spanish but I took Spanish courses then during 8 years I had my own Estate Agency in Alhaurín de la Torre. In 2013 I decided to pass the agency on to someone else and take advantage of the opportunity to form part of the team at Ideal. I love working with clients and it is always a joy to see a happy client when they find their dream home. I speak English, French, Spanish and a little German. I love nature, mountain trekking, music, reading, travelling and use some of my free time to help with different humanitarian charities.

I have been part of the Ideal team since 2016. Since arriving at this company, I have felt like I am growing personally and professionally every day, surrounded by the best people in this sector. I love dealing with people and the feeling that you are helping someone to find their ideal property. I am part of the sales and rentals team, listing and valuing properties. I am Spanish and was born in Coín. I studied Economic Sciences at the University of Madrid. In 2011 I had the opportunity to live in Liège thanks to an Erasmus scholarship (an incredible year for me with very good memories and friends). In 2014 I decided to go to Ireland in search of a new adventure as an au pair. I was fortunate to live with a wonderful Irish family with four adorable girls. I love to travel (whenever I have a few days off work, I prepare my backpack and organize a getaway to know some wonderful corner of this world), I’m a nature and animal lover, and I enjoy simple pleasures, positive people and a table surrounded by friends and good conversation.

I have been with Ideal since 2016, although I have been in the real estate business since 2013. I work with sales and rentals. I’m originally from Sweden, although I’m half Spanish too. I moved to Madrid when I was 8, and at 18 I decided to explore the planet a little, and after living in Costa Rica for a while, I went to the UK (to learn English), where I met my husband and ended up staying there, and after a few years of jumping between Spain and the UK I ended up here, in Málaga in 2008, with my family. I have three teenage children, so my life is never boring! In my spare time (which isn’t much) I like to read, loooove cooking and baking, eating out with friends, travelling when possible, and I even manage to go swimming before work a few times a week. I enjoy chilling out at the beach on Sundays, with a good “tortilla de patata” and a cold beer!

Originally from Bristol, I moved to Málaga at the age of 14 with my family. I have been with the Ideal team since 2015. I feel very fortunate to live in such a scenic part of Spain and raise my two young children in another country allowing them to become bilingual. I have a love for music, arts and crafts, taking photos and a nice glass of rosé wine. I enjoy spending my free time with my loved ones, making the most of the long summer evenings.
