Dear Martina and Michael:
Initially our plan was to simply visit Uruguay and get an idea of the kind of houses that could be bought there, and what the prices were like.
You prepared an “exploratory trip” for us while we were still in Germany: information about Uruguay, hotel and car rental reservations, instructions on how to get to Punta del Este and recommendations for getting to know the country.
The preparations you made for our visit were more than extraordinary! All of the information that you had provided us was fully accurate, and we were able to gain in-depth knowledge of the country in a very short time.
Then, the visits to the houses that interested us were Martina’s job. We have lived in many different countries around the world and have bought and sold houses numerous times, but Martina’s professional guidance, patience and sensitivity for finding just the right houses to meet our expectations were remarkable.
In fact, we found a house that we liked so much that in spite of our initial plans, we decided to buy it immediately.
Martina and Michael kindly accompanied us through all the official procedures, which meant that our lack of knowledge of Spanish and other matters was no obstacle whatsoever. They even included a guided tour of the fascinating capital city, Montevideo! And they also accompanied us to the mandatory meeting with the notary (and had all of the important documents professionally translated).
And so, if anyone has the (excellent) idea of buying a house in Uruguay: there is no better place to go than Martina and Michael van Bevern.
