Property Sales in the Alpujarras of Granada

Another Way Of Life - country properties for sale in Andalusiais a specialist agency offering for sale country houses, cortijos, fincas and other rural properties in the spectacularly beautiful countryside of inland Andalusia. Originally based in the historic and vibrant city of Granada we also now have agencies throughout Eastern Andalucia including in Órgiva, Cádiar, Lecrin Valley, Montefrío and Iznajar.

Our area offers fabulous mountain and countryside views, peace and tranquility, very friendly and open local people, whitewashed hilltop villages, a real sense of history and close proximity both to winter sports in the Sierra Nevada and swimming in the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The historic cities of Granada, Córdoba, Málaga and Antequera are all within easy reach.

Almost all of our properties have land, anything from a garden to several hectares or more. Only in areas where there is a real shortage of cortijos do we offer houses in towns and villages. Whenever possible we list only those that have at least some outside space such as a patio or roof terrace.

Many of our properties have been lovingly restored, others need minor works to bring them up-todate. Some though need a complete rebuild and are awaiting your energies to transform them into a dream home in the sun. Come to Another Way Of Life, a better way of life: slower, calmer, with space to breathe and time to appreciate the views. You’ll get to know your friendly neighbours and will never be short of other expatriates with whom to drop by for a chat.

We look forward to welcoming you to our healthy climate with an average of more than 300 days of sunshine a year, little wind and an almost total lack of greyness.

"I fell in love with a beautiful property on the Another Way Of Life webpage. I had a couple of properties in the UK to sell before I could view it and make an offer but Allan Hillder stayed in touch with me at regular intervals to see how things were going. We were impressed with his helpfulness and knowledge of the area. We asked lots of questions and always got a swift response.
The British properties eventually sold and we were finally able to put an offer on our dream home recently. We moved in at the weekend and both absolutely love the house. We had lots of legal problems and hurdles to overcome on the way but we faced each problem one at a time with Allan’s and a good lawyer’s help and we got there in the end! We cannot wait to start this brand new chapter of our lives and highly recommend the services of all staff at Another Way Of Life."

"We have recently sold our Cortijo through Another Way of Life. From offer to sale, the whole process was completed in under three weeks, which is exceptional. The sale was complex and there were a few obstacles to overcome. However Allan guided the buyers and us through everything, using his extensive knowledge of the process in Andalucia and his wide range of resources. We know that this would not have been achieved using local estate agents in the timescale.  Many hours were put into this sale by Allan and his team, often during the late evening and weekends.We have no hesitation in recommending Allan at Another Way of Life."

"Hi Paul,
Just a quick note to thank you for your help in the purchase of our property in Lanjaron.
It been a pleasure dealing with you from the start to the finish.
We moved in for our last 2 days and felt like home straight away , a truly spectacular spot.
Hopefully we will see you for a drink at some point in the near future.
Warm regards"

"Many thanks for your work in selling the cortijo and for the support you have given Sandra through the most recent steps."

"Solamente unas palabras para agradeceros vuestro servicio con respecto a la venta de nuestra casa. Estamos muy contentos con el gran trabajo que habéis hecho desde Albayzín Properties. Buscar un comprador y facilitar el trato con él, a través del idioma, nos ha resultado de gran ayuda. Por eso no queremos dejar más tiempo sin reiteraros nuestra gratitud y nuestra más cordial enhorabuena."
{tab Lawrence B}
"Moving to a foreign country is often not so easy. With an unfamiliarity with Spanish culture and language, house buying can be complicated. During my first week in Granada , I met Allan and his team at Another Way Of Life, this encounter made the whole process of finding and purchasing a home in the enchanting streets of Albaycin almost effortless. With his years of experience living in Andalucia , he seemed to know what sort of home we needed. We viewed nine properties, all tasteful and unique and by my third week I was already signing the initial part of the purchase contract. We are delighted with the professionalism and smoothness of buying a home through Another Way Of Life and would highly recommend the company to anyone seeking a dream home in the sun."

Dear Allan,
"One year has already past since we sold our property in Orgiva. Retrospectively we wish to express once again, and also publicly, our deep appreciation for everything you have done for us. From the beginning we felt that we were in the best hands. We were treated in a friendly and professional way and were led through all the necessary steps in order to navigate the jungle of Spanish bureaucracy. Even after the sale had been completed we received additional help with tax and transfer charges. We are very grateful to Another Way Of Life, to be able to keep both our beloved property and the final sale process, as one of our best memories!

"Lieber Allan,
Wir wollten uns nun im Nachhinein noch einmal und öffentlich ganz herzlich für Deinen großen Einsatz beim Verkauf unseres Hauses in Tijola bedanken. Von Anfang an haben wir uns in den besten Händen gefühlt, freundlich und professionell wurden wir bei allen notwendigen Schritten mit Rat und Tat betreut und durch den Dschungel der spanischen Bürokratie geführt. Auch noch nach Abschluß der Verträge erhielten wir Rat und Hilfe, zum einen bei steuerlichen Angelegenheiten, zum andern bei der erfolgreichen Rückforderung überhöhter Bankgebühren. Wir sind Another Way Of Life sehr dankbar, unser geliebtes Anwesens bis hin zum Verkauf in bester Erinnerung behalten zu dürfen.
Viele Grüße und die besten Wünsche"

"We would like to publicly thank Chris & Allan for the excellent work in achieving the sale of our Cortijo in the Alpujarras. When we bought the farm and whilst rebuilding it, we thought we had done all the necessary licences and paperwork for everything to be 100% if we ever sold. As with many properties in Spain, this wasn’t the case! The Cortijo was fine but some of the surrounding land hadn’t been properly transferred into our name. When we decided to sell Another Way Of Life soon proved they were the best choice for us. They immediately spotted the errors in the paperwork and began a complex process in getting everything right. Chris and Allan worked miracles in a very short space of time to ensure our sale was completed. If we ever choose to return to Spain to live, without doubt we will be using Another Way Of Life to find a guaranteed legally sound property. Thank you again Chris & Allan."

"Hi Allan Chris and Birgit, just to let you know we completed the sale yesterday and received the keys. We wanted to say a big thank you to you all for your hard work and professionalism. Also with reference to Nacho, thank you for the recommendation. He was excellent. We will definitely use you all again for future investment purchases in the area."
{tab Walter C}
"We were delighted with the photographic presentation of the property on your website and pleasantly surprised at the speed by which the sale was achieved."
{tab Mané R and Brian G}
"Another Way Of Life has been a godsend in our search for a new home in Andalucia.  From the first meeting, both Allan and Paul really took the time to get to know our requirements and understand our style and have not been afraid to steer us away from wasting time seeing properties that, whilst they may have resulted in a sale on their part, were not perfect for us.
When our first vendors decided to pull out (after a year of above-and-beyond negotiations by Allan), he then made it his mission in life to find us something even better and achieved this within a few months.  Allan then helped us find a lawyer and an architect (both of which have been excellent) and has personally micro-managed the entire process to ensure it has gone as smoothly as possible, often acting way above the call of duty.  Even now, six months after getting the keys, we call Allan with questions of where we can source materials or ask his advice about anything. He is always happy to go out of his way to help in a way that only a good friend would do. 
We cannot recommend Allan highly enough and if you are looking for an agent with integrity, who will always act in your best interests and has a fountain of local knowledge and contacts then Allan from Another Way Of Life is your man!
"
{tab Angela B and Andy McD}
"We would recommend using Another Way of Life to buy a property, without any hesitation. Throughout the process, from viewings to completion, the agents, Allan in particular, were helpful, informed and patient. Phone and email queries were always promptly responded to. At all times we were supported and guided. We felt as though we were in the purchase together. What was important to us was also important to the agents. We felt listened to.
We fell in love with a property that stretched us in every way. Our passion and our financial situation was understood and respected. Without Allan negotiating and directing the process, our dream would not have become a reality.
Every step to buying the property was explained, often several times, and the contacts recommended (e.g. lawyers and currency advisors) were professional and experienced.
It wasn't simply that the agents were native English speakers and so language problems were avoided. The most valuable asset of the team is that they are willing to go the extra mile. We didn’t feel like we were just another customer. And there was no pressure to buy. We felt confident and excited and we look back on a great experience and a positive start to life in our new Spanish home.

"It was a pleasure working with AnotherWay of Life. I was making a quite substantial purchase and I felt in good hands. The advise they gave me was always spot on. Allan talked through every aspect of the purchase and proposed different options of going about the transaction. He succeeded in negotiating a very good reduction from the asking price and was very flexible and easy to work with in every respect. I would definitely recommend them."
{tab Adam H}
"When selling our finca in the Alpujarra we found Allan and Paul to be very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. It definitely made a huge difference to work with a specialist agency. They know their stuff and were able to accurately inform and reassure clients when the inevitable queries and “problemillas” arose! Muchas gracias!"
{tab Terri M}
"Another Way of Life is by far the best website advertising property in the area. It is attractive and easy to use, so it was my estate agency of choice when looking for a finca. We very much appreciate how helpful Allan was throughout the buying process. He was patient with us when we were going after a property which ultimately wasn't right for us. He instinctively knew what we were looking for and suggested we go and see the finca that turned out to be perfect. Buying a property in Spain can be a daunting prospect but Allan made it simple and easy. He continues to offer help to us with paperwork etc even now, a year and a half after the sale. Thank you for everything Allan. We have our perfect little bolt hole thanks to you."
{tab Jeanette W}
"I asked Allan and Paul to sell my property in Orgiva for me and they did in a very short time! Allan and Paul are efficient and very nice to deal with. I have already recommended them to friends who have proceeded to sell via Another Way Of Life. I would also say when I needed help regarding paperwork many months after the sale they readily assisted me and I was most grateful. May you continue to prosper."
{tab Rupert S}
"Paul and Allan have a confident no-pressure way that inspires trust. Dealing through them was a definitely a factor in deciding to buy in the area. They were patient with my search, and when I saw my place they were quick to help secure it. They even organised a place to rent while I got a feel for the area. The process was surprisingly straight forward, more so than in the U.K., in my experience. The name 'Another Way Of Life' is so apt. Many thanks!"
{tab Judy & Dave W.}
"I just felt I had to write and say how fantastic Paul has been right from the first time my husband and I met him. Nothing has been too much trouble, we were taken to great properties in a wide range of areas, unbiased information and advise was freely offered, time was given to help after we purchased our home through Paul and help even extended to translating to the hospital when I was taken ill, actually you were also involved there I think Allan so thanks to you too.
Dave and I have bought a few houses in our time, through lots of different estate agents but never have we come across such outstanding service with a patient smile regardless of what we've asked. I cannot recommend Another Way of Life highly enough. Massive thank you! We honestly hope we will continue a growing friendship with Paul, he's a fantastic man!"
{tab Anne-Marie v.D}
"Your services are very good and we appreciate the assistance and help offered along the way and after. You probably know that, when you are from abroad, and one starts reading about the process of buying a house in Spain, every website, forum and blog literally all scream, careful, careful and beware. Therefore every step is taken very cautiously, which might come over as suspicious, but is not meant that way. Your service proves that buying can be done very honestly and in a pleasant way."
{tab Ina & Henrik N }
"We are a couple who have surfed your web page for some years and now we want to take it a step further. Is it possible to meet you at your office tomorrow? We are in Orgiva to visit friends that you helped find their house. They highly recommend you!"
{tab John G.}
"Allan and Paul dealt quickly and efficiently with queries about paperwork, permissions and rights, which could otherwise have derailed the sale. Always friendly and professional to deal with and willing to do whatever was necessary to make sure our sale went ahead. Recommended!"
{tab John & Wendy J}
"Allan and Paul at Another Way Of Life.com provided a level of customer care that is sadly lacking in many companies these days, particularly when you think of Estate Agencies. Their in-depth local knowledge and pragmatic approach to problem resolution was a continual comfort and allowed us to enjoy the house hunting and purchase process and they were always there for post completion support. Buying a Spanish property via Another Way Of Life.com will be the most sensible decision you will make."
