Having retired from my Academy in Australia, after many years, I began investigating the possibility of new adventures in various European countries.
As a newly single retiree, with dual UK and Australian citizenship, I was uncertain about living in a foreign country, having decided that I didn’t want to return to the UK, despite having family there.
I could speak a small amount of school German and French and felt happy about improving those skills.
I followed the advice of a cousin of mine who had set up a company called Rightmove.com and looked at the different options in Spain, Italy and France as well as some of the newly developed Eastern European countries. I was daunted by the legal and health complications they presented and thought that it was a step too far on my own at 71 years old.
Just by chance, I came across a German property which connected to the German Property Services website and "Hey Presto!" my life changed overnight. The unique service offered by this company seemed to me the only possible way I would have the courage to take the next step from 12,000 kms away.
I won’t repeat all the same details listed by other referees, as everyone receives the same excellent attention and nothing is left to chance.
All I will add is that I had a serious health issue soon after arrival and they were quick to sort it all out and support me throughout the treatment. It was not part of their brief, but I am hugely grateful to them for extending their personal care to my situation. The German health system is amazing and a huge lesson to Great Britain.
The past four years here have been a very happy experience, giving me the chance to explore parts of Europe easily by car or train and to buy and sell property twice successfully.

We found the team at German Property Services very knowledgeable when we were looking to purchase a house in Germany. They knew about the properties, the area, taxes, fees, and would always make sure we were aware on anything we had spoken of. They were more than willing to spend time to make sure we fully understood every detail about the property on question. They are very honest and committed and we would recommend them to anyone who is looking to purchase a home and/or flat in Germany, because they put your needs and benefits first.

We planned to retire to the contnent 5 years ago, having spent all our holidays for the last 30 years touring around Europe. When the time came to retire we decided that the Mosel area was a perfect place to settle.
German Property Services made our property search easy. We identified six properties to view and the team arranged all the viewings at the end of October.
Everyone in the team are not only professional, but also very approachable and their local knowledge was invaluable in helping us to select our purchase. Particularly as our German is still in its infancy. Jim took us to view all the properties and once we had decided upon our house purchase Brigitte then
organised appointments with the bank, notary and insurance broker to streamline the house purchasing process. The house purchase was completed in early February. Such an easy process - not at all like house buying in England! WE DIDN’T FEEL STRESSED AT ALL.
The team : -
organised heating oil,
supported us when registering,
sorted out our council tax and refuse bins,
and even sourced trades-persons for some building work.
Nothing has been too much trouble for the team and we thank them all for their patience and kindness.

We came upon German Property Service through a real estate mulitple listng website. They happily provided immediate property informa!on at our request. Upon finding one, the service to view was also very quick! The purchase was very easy with exceptional guidance, especially from Mila. They speak English, know all the German rules, and help with any details needed even after the purchase. They treat you like a friendly neighbor and made us feel exceptionally welcome in their community. We highly recommend this realtor company!

In July 2012 we bought our first house from German Property Services, and it went so smoothly, it seemed like it was just a happy coincidence. We then bought a beautiful old fachwerk house with 4 apartments from them in 2013, and had a wonderful few years renting it to the many holiday makers in the Mosel. A year later we bought the property next door.
All the while, the experience and honesty from them all was invaluable.
This year we put the holiday apartments on the market, they sold quickly and so amazingly easily. The team worked hard on our behalf, and never bothered us by asking us constantly for information they could find out for themselves. We are so grateful for all their hard work and for making this experience easy and even exciting.
We always recommend German Property Services to the many friends who are thinking about living here in the Mosel.
Thank you again all of you for your support and help over these last 5 years.
