Maltese Property Testimonials
We fully recognise the emotional and financial capital that goes into buying or renting a property in a foreign land, and endeavour to convey and furnish our clients with all the information they require in order to take a decision. We are committed to deliver a service, which is unparalleled and candid in its approach! We would like to thank all the below clients for their kind comments and email contact details.
Buying a property in a foreign land can be a daunting experience, with many pitfalls and uncertainties for the unwary. All of our concerns evaporated when we found Malta Homes.
Paul Hay is as good as his word. He claims to offer a professional and no-nonsense service to his clients as well as providing full support “to the expat buying in Malta”. After holidaying in Malta for several years, my wife and I decided on Malta for our retirement home and being conveniently located close to mainland Europe, would also allow us to keep close contact with our friends and family. We gave Malta Homes a wide brief as we didn’t want to restrict our choice, but quickly settled for a Penthouse. Paul acted as proxy for the signing of the preliminary agreement which was completed within 10 days whilst we returned home to Switzerland. On a follow-up visit a member of the Malta Homes staff, was at our disposal for an entire week taking us to various stores to choose furniture and fittings which, had been preselected based on our shopping list. At the end of the week, just before leaving for Switzerland the true spirit of Malta Homes policy came to the fore! Paul, told us that the surveyors report showed certain irregularities in the construction of our chosen property which, we would probably not have identified unless we decided to sell the property at some time in the future. Paul’s openness and transparency cost him the sale! We returned to Malta some weeks later, homeless having sold our property in Switzerland. Paul again came to our rescue in ensuring we had temporary accommodation and again putting the same member of staff at our disposal to find another property. Having spent time previously with Drew, he had a good idea of our likes and dislikes and within 24hrs of arrival, showed us a Penthouse property with arguably one of the best views in Malta! The preliminary contract was exchanged within 10 days and completion followed about 4 weeks later!!
Paul and his team were exemplary in dealing not only with our housing needs but our ups and downs during our searches in a very understanding and sympathetic manner. When Paul claims to offer a professional and no-nonsense service he means it, but it comes with a large dose of sympathetic understanding of his clients (continuously changing) needs. He has kept contact with us since our move and is always available to help in any way using his vast knowledge of the “Maltese system” and his many useful contacts.

Buying advice for
We decided to buy a property for sale in Malta after visiting over the last six years. By researching the Internet we contacted Paul Hay of Malta Homes as he had a good selection of property. After discussing our requirements with Paul he locally sourced the best properties on the market within our budget and came back to us with a good selection of property around Malta. As we knew Mellieha particularly well we asked him to find property for sale mostly in that area and to arrange appointments as soon as possible.
The visit was a success and with Paul and Racine’s (Paul’s PA) help and support, placed an offer for the property in May and completed the sale in August. We have no hesitation in recommending Malta Homes; they maintained excellent communication with us via email/phone during the whole buying process and afterwards to ensure that everything ran quickly and smoothly. We love our new home; it is exactly what we wanted.

Our move from the UK to look at Malta Property would not have been achieved, without the assistance from Paul Hay and Racine of Malta Homes Estate Agents.
Since our first meeting in May 2008, Paul helped us find our dream Malta property, after meeting other estate agents that really didn't hit the mark. We explained to Paul exactly what we were looking for in terms of our ideal Maltese property, the area we wanted and budget. The regular contact we received in the UK impressed us and on our return visit Paul spent two days with us viewing property that met our requirements. Needless to say, we found exactly what we were looking for. From then on, our purchase proceeded smoothly, Paul not only introduced us to the builders, but recommended a good English speaking Notary. Paul became our Attorney to successfully conclude the legal contract of purchase in August 2008. We are now happily living in Malta, but Paul's services went above and beyond the call of duty, spending time with us visiting suppliers to help us find various requirements to the likes of a new kitchen, DIY and Garden Centres to which Paul accompanied us to organising and supervising the installation of air conditioning plus a whole bunch more and is always available for helpful advice having now moved in.
Anyone thinking of purchasing property in Malta, we would highly recommend the services of Malta Homes Estate Agents. Well done! A big thank you to Paul and Racine, our mission of moving from UK to Malta was completed hassle free.

We cannot praise highly enough Malta Homes Director Paul Hay, who's excellent knowledge of the Malta Property Market enabled us to buy a delightful House of Character in Gharghur. Not only did he assist greatly in the purchase of the property, but he continued to assist us in advice on restoring the property finding Tradesmen and over seeing the work, Paul was there every step of the way, thoroughly recommend.
John Skiba & Barry Walters,
Just a short note to say "thank you" for all your assistance during my visit to Malta. You did a fantastic job for which I am very grateful. It would have taken me ages to acquire the local knowledge you have. I also found your advice on fiscal matters very helpful. Thank you for being so hard working, friendly and professional in the process. Much appreciated.
Whether your nationality English or Maltese searching for a property in Malta and would like to find a person that you can trust, cut down the search and get in touch with Malta Homes. I have been searching the past four years to buy an Apartment in a specific location but, because I live abroad it was a bit difficult to make a decision.
When I emailed Malta Homes, I promptly got back an email, they have a great deal of property knowledge and also of the whole buying process. Paul Hay was a pleasure to meet with and assisted me to finalize the property contract. Paul also pointed out Tradesmen to help me restore the property, I can't thank them enough for going the extra mile to see their customers satisfied and what counts the most is the communication with me via email/phone during the whole process. I highly recommend Malta Homes.
I would like to thank you for all your help, professionalism and commitment in assisting us in realizing a dream come true. After a painstaking search not only for the right property, but the right Agent we met you and feel we got lucky as you truly are an abundance of information, that put our minds at rest to guide us through the buying procedures and how the Maltese Property market ticks. Once again thank you so much for being honest, it really made the difference and for sure should any of our friends or family want to invest in Malta Property, rest assured we are only to happy to put you forward.

Having spent many holidays in Malta and Gozo for some years, my wife and I decided to take a look at the property market, so after looking on Malta Homes website, we gave them a call. Malta Homes picked us up at our hotel in Gozo in the morning to look at properties on the island. This was carried out in a very friendly laid back, but professional manner without any pressure selling! We were shown a variety of properties, some finished, some unfinished and by 5.00pm we had decided on an unfinished property in Xaghra. Malta Homes appointed a builder to carry out building works required to finish our new holiday home and now 12 months on we have a beautiful 3-bedroom Apartment.
We cannot thank Malta Homes enough for all their support, in overseeing all the works etc, whilst we were back in the UK, for their valued advice and help given in every aspect of the purchase, for organising the Notary and acting as our attorney to deal with all the legal stuff in our absence. Very satisfied customers!!!

Whether supplying information via email or driving through the areas in Malta, he was thorough, knowledgeable and honest. He always went the extra mile, and we would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in living or investing in Malta”
