I'm from the UK but I'm also Spanish and after having travelled the world working in the casino industry for 15 years, Peter and I decided to settle in Alhaurín el Grande in 1999. My son, Max, was born in 2001 and my second child, Ideal Country Property, was started in 2007. Apart from overseeing the Ideal office, I manage to find time to take Pilates, Zumba and Step classes. I love spicy food (especially Thai) and am quite fond of a glass or two of cava!

Originally from Brighton in the UK, I left in 1989 to travel the world and have lived in the Bahamas (where I met my wife Sharon), British West Indies, Hungary, New Zealand and Russia before settling down in Spain in 1999. I have been with Ideal from the very beginning in 2007. My main role is in sales but I really do a bit of everything. I'm also Spanish and I love being in Spain and sampling all the different restaurants but I also love to travel and experience different cultures. My favourite pastime is relaxing at home with my family and a cold beer.

I am one of the owners of Ideal but work as part of the sales team. I’m from the Midlands originally but like so many UK citizens my young family and I decided in 2001 to change our quality of life and flee England for a sunny lifestyle in Spain. Shortly after we arrived, I had the good fortune to be offered a job in real estate and found that I really enjoyed it. Since 2007 with my business partner Sharon, I have had the pleasure to work with a great group of people from all over Europe at Ideal. I have 3 real passions in life which are cooking with local Spanish produce, playing paddle tennis with my many friends, and going to the gym. I’m also an avid follower of rugby and cricket.

I've been with Ideal since 2008 and work in admin and IT. I'm from Nottingham (UK) originally but am also Spanish and have been living in Málaga province since 2001. I speak English, Spanish and British Sign Language (and my Welsh is very rusty!). I have a love of music, technology, sci-fi, languages, the almost lost art of pub quizzes, MG classic cars, Cadbury’s chocolate (without nuts), and I play acoustic guitar.

I have been part of the Ideal team since 2016. Since arriving at this company, I have felt like I am growing personally and professionally every day, surrounded by the best people in this sector. I love dealing with people and the feeling that you are helping someone to find their ideal property. I am part of the sales and rentals team, listing and valuing properties. I am Spanish and was born in Coín. I studied Economic Sciences at the University of Madrid. In 2011 I had the opportunity to live in Liège thanks to an Erasmus scholarship (an incredible year for me with very good memories and friends). In 2014 I decided to go to Ireland in search of a new adventure as an au pair. I was fortunate to live with a wonderful Irish family with four adorable girls. I love to travel (whenever I have a few days off work, I prepare my backpack and organize a getaway to know some wonderful corner of this world), I’m a nature and animal lover, and I enjoy simple pleasures, positive people and a table surrounded by friends and good conversation.

I joined the team in 2021 and do the social media and marketing, so I'm always looking for ways to promote the properties and local area. I am originally from Zimbabwe but spent may years in South Africa before moving to the UK for a few years. The cold though was not for me and we came to Spain in 2015. My passions are horse riding, motorbikes and craft creations.

I am of Swiss origin, born in La Chaux-de-Fonds, I arrived in Andalusia in 2004. It was a great adventure, especially without speaking a word of Spanish. First I attended Spanish classes, then for 8 years I had my own Estate Agency in Alhaurín de la Torre. A few years ago I decided to sell my agency and had the opportunity to join the Ideal Country Property team. I really like public relations and it is always a great pleasure to see a client happy after having acquired the house of their dreams. I speak French, English, Spanish and a little German. I really like nature, walking in the mountains, music and reading. I love to travel and I enjoy dedicating some of my free time to various humanitarian activities.
