A little about the company founder…Angelo Collins
Angelo came to Marbella from London after a lengthy and productive time in the hospitality industry initially for a year’s break. That was over 17 years ago, the change in lifestyle clearly suited him. His children had the benefits of growing up experiencing an outdoor life in the beautiful sunshine, mixing with friends from all over the world in this wonderful cosmopolitan landscape. Free from the hustle and bustle of a major European city like London, framed with blue skies and bright sunshine all year round.
Initially dipping his toes in the local hospitality and import business. Angelo was encouraged to enter the real estate industry and has never looked back.
In the following years Angelo built up an extensive network of real estate contacts and professionals, working with developers, acquiring expertise and invaluable local knowledge along the way.
Angelo’s background in the hospitality industry, experience in owning and running different types of businesses has greatly assisted him in understanding and embracing the nuances of the real estate sector, and communicating with clients, property owners and developers.
Having a young family when relocating here himself, has helped Angelo understand what potential buyers are looking for when searching for property themselves, above and beyond the property itself.
