Real professionals! After long searching for apartment with other agencies we finally found our dream property with Found Valencia, quick and very helpful!
I have come to know Conor Wilde, Founder and Managing Director of Found Valencia, as a reliable and knowledgeable professional with a great passion for real estate and construction. His decade’s long experience in the field of real estate and the fact that he has been living in the area for a long time, reassures you that you will get excellent advice and service when buying property in Valencia. Furthermore, Connor and his company work closely with other professionals involved in buying and selling process and therefore he is well connected in the Valencian community. Highly recommended if you are thinking of buying or selling your property in Valencia and surroundings.
Found Valencia est un agent immobilier très facile à vivre. Cela simplifie vraiment la vie de quelqu'un comme moi, qui ne connaissait pas bien l'Espagne et le processus d'achat d'un bien immobilier pour un étranger en Espagne. Found Valencia a pris tous les problèmes pour moi. Je sentais qu'ils essayaient vraiment d'obtenir le meilleur rapport qualité-prix pour moi et se concentraient vraiment sur ce qui était important pour moi. Je recommanderais vivement Found Valencia si vous envisagez d'acheter une propriété en Espagne.
J'ai visité récemment Valence en Espagne et j'ai été époustouflé par les belles propriétés et par tout ce que la ville offre entre campagne, mer et ville. tout est accessible en quelques minutes.
J'ai rencontré Conor Wilde et son équipe à Found Valencia. Ils comprennent bien ce qu'implique un demenagement. Le personnel était vraiment serviable et le service offert par Found Valencia est bien différent de mes expériences antérieures avec d’autres agents immobiliers. Ils s'interressent vraiment a leurs clients et obtiennent le meilleur rapport qualité-prix. J'ai également trouvé rassurant qu'ils travaillent avec un cabinet d'avocat pour s'assurer que tout ce passe dans les regles.
J'ai trouvé que Valence offrait un bien meilleur rapport qualité-prix que tout ce que j'ai vu ailleurs en Espagne et l'emplacement et la ville offrent tout et beaucoup plus que les grandes villes comme Barcelone et Madrid, mais sans le stress.
Очень советую это агенство, по приезду в Испанию пробовали работать с некоторыми,но никто не мог предложить подходящий вариант для нашего бюджета. Found Valencia работают очень быстро и профессионально! Нас возили на такси по всем объектам! Есть обслуживание после покупки, помогают оформить все документы начиная от НИЕ и заканчивая финальный подписанием! Очень порядочные! Спасибо Елене и Конору
My wife and I moved here from Los Angeles a little over a year ago. We leased a flat to see if we wanted to live here. We fell in love with Valencia and decided to buy a flat in the center of town. After hearing of some of the problems that others had and a few of our own. Finding that there is no regulation in the real estate industry and that realtors don't need to be licensed, we decided to find a real estate attorney. A friend referred us to an attorney and he introduced us to Conner Wilde. It was a relief to find someone we could trust. We had found that he and his staff had integrity. Another plus for me is that he and his agents, that I have met, speak perfect English. We are now looking for a second property out of town and will only use Found Valencia. Thanks Conner. Fritz and Trisha Edgar.
La Inmobiliaria mas seria eficaz y funcional que he encontrado en mi vida. Muy contento del Director Conor Wilde y de todo su equipo. He comprado una finca y un atico con Found Valencia y la recomiendo a todos! Enhorabuena y felicitaciones con la calidad y seriedad del trabajo que haceis! Gracias!
Muy recomendables en los diferentes servicios que ofrecen como inmobiliaria.
Found Valencia real estate in my opinion was the most professional and helpful estate agency I have had the pleasure to work with in Valencia. The attention to detail is second to none, the bi-lingual staff made everything run smoothly and seamlessly and i got full disclosure on all aspects of buying a property in Valencia. There are plenty of agents in Valencia but none with the calibre of professionalism and expertise as Found Valencia.
First thing, we have just begun looking for a new apartment in Valencia. We have been received and introduced very well by Angela, Jose and Conor. For us it's very important with a professional and competent support throughout the entire duration of this process.
So far, it has been exceeding our expectations and we feel comfortable moving on.
More feedback to come when we have come a bit further. We are very satisfied so far.
Un trabajo eficaz por parte de sus profesionales, y un seguimiento muy directo; y, algo que es muy de agradecer en estos días: trato afable y cordial, con mucha correccion. En resumen: eficacia, responsabilidad y amabilidad. Gracias.
Marisa y Rolando.

Gracias a Found Valencia por su gran profesionalidad, amabilidad, eficacia y seriedad.

Found Valencia is an excellent realty company. Connor's staff is very professional and extremely competent in helping you in all aspects of purchasing a home in Spain. Our agent, Celia, was simply fantastic. It took us 2 trips to find what we were looking for in Valencia. She quickly learned from our first day what we were looking for and helped steer us away from locations we wouldn't care for and focus on the area's that would be of interest to us. Her help didn't stop with the purchase of the home as she has been instrumental in helping us set up cell service and TV and a myriad of other items with the purchase of a new home. Connor took time to speak with us a couple of times and made a point of emphasizing that he and his team are there to help us long after the sale. They are a first rate company and I would highly recommend them.
Conor and his team were absolutely fantastic.
We were worried when starting our house renovation project whether we would be able to find reliable and good contractors and how the communication would be, if the project would end on time etc.
Found Valencia managed the renovation of our house in such a way that once they got involved our worries were gone. We were well listened to, properly advised, good reliable contractors were contacted, regular meetups arranged, problems dealt with successfully and now we are enjoying a beautifully renovated house that was completed on time and to a very high standard.
We highly recommend Found Valencia!
Gracias a Found Valencia Property por su profesionalidad y trato personal. Me he sentido muy cómoda y arropada en cualquier gestión hecha por este gran equipo y cualquier duda que he tenido y les he pedido consejo, me lo han ofrecido amablemente.
Además de encontrarme con nuevas amistades tanto del equipo como de la compradora.
Suerte y Adelante!????
Una inmobiliaria seria, que cuenta con grandes profesionales y que han vendido el piso que tenia en Valencia a la venta en tiempo récord!! Enhorabuena por el buen trabajo. Muy recomendable.
Buying property in Spain can be complicated for a foreigner but Conor at found Valencia knows how to smooth out the wrinkles and make your buying experience effective
His staff is professional and knowledgeable and listen to your needs and never try to push you into anything you don’t want
Kudos for found Valencia properties!!!!!!!!
Extremely good service! Would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for restoration works to there property.
Los mejores profesionales a los que confiar la venta de tu piso. Rápidos, eficaces y serios. Altamente recomendable.
We purchased a 2 bed room flat through Found Valencia just over 2 years ago, first contact was with May who was very professional, followed by Celia who took us around all the properties we had pre-chosen over the internet. Celia always had plenty of time to help and was very accommodating. Finally when it came to signing papers, we met with Conor, the ultimate in can do people, the whole team is extremely professional, the Brits could learn a thing or 2 from this great outfit.
From first viewing to purchase took about 4 weeks.
P.S. Just bought a house in the hills with them as well, tghis time with Alberto showing us around and Conor catering to every post purchase need. You can not do better than with Found Valencia - by the way i do not do reviews - Ever.
Esta inmobiliaria, con un trato elegante y profesional, se desvivió hasta encontrar al cliente adecuado y vender nuestro piso en el centro histórico en un excelente precio.
In 2011 bezocht een vriend uit Valencia ons in Amsterdam . Een 2e woning voor ons kwam ter sprake en zo kwamen we aan het adres van Found Valencia.
In Valencia werden wij opgehaald van het hotel en bezochten een groot aantal huizen en keken wij kritisch rond en stelden natuurlijk ook veel vragen. Met uiterste interesse en belangstelling in onze wensen werden huizen geselecteerd . In de Urbanisatie San Cristobal kochten we onze 2e woning ..De Makelaar Found Valencia was daar goed ingevoerd en kon ons alles vertellen over de Urbanisatie . Slechts op 30 auto minuten afstand van de grote Stad Valencia . Waar we tenminste 3 x per week vertoeven gedurende de wisselende seizoenen Amsterdam /Valencia . De makelaar heeft ons bijgestaan in alle vragen en voorbereidingen die ons op het pad kwamen zoals dokumenten te bekomen van plaatselijke en rijks overheden. In alle opzichten verdiend deze makelaar een serieuze aanbeveling. Zelfs nu vertrouwen we hem de verkoop van onze villa toe. Immers hij kent alle ins en outs ter zake. onze villa en verkoop.
Found Valencia is de voor ons best ingevoerde makelaar in de Stad en provincie Valencia. Het wereld wijd opereren door deze makelaar is a pre
voor allen die iets op de huizen markt van doen hebben.
Ook de contacten die de makelaar heeft binnenlands naar vele sectoren waar mee een koper en of verkoper van doen hebben is een groot voordeel om een transactie goed te doen laten verlopen . De internationale Awards toegekend aan deze Makelaardij onderstreept de belangrijke positie in de Onroerend goed markt.
Probably the best estate agents in Valencia. Almost a year since we bought our house and even now whenever we have a query or an issue that needs attention Found Valencia are there to help. Conor is always at hand ... their customer service (in Spain at least from my experience) is second to none. I would recommend to anyone who's after a hassle free purchase and aftercare customer service.
Inmobiliaria con un servicio integral y buen asesoramiento. Conor y su equipo de Found Valencia ofrecen un trato inmejorable.
Residentes belgas, estamos en contacto con Cristina para encontrar un trozo de paraiso en la provincia de Valencia de laquala nos hemos enamorado. Estamos muy satisfechos y felices de nuestra colaboracion. Si buscan una colaboracion de qualidad, no duden en contactar Found Valencia Property. Ademas de servicios muy profesionales encontraran una relacion humana de primera categoria ! Mucha suerte en vuestros proyectos. Helene y Daniel
Actually a very good service from this estate agent. I was helping my brother on law find a place and contacted Found Valencia. They were very helpful and professional, resolving all our doubts and needs, including sourcing tradesmen. Well worth a visit.
Having worked professionally with Conor and his team at Found Valencia in the residential sector in Valencia over the past 10 years, I have seen that they hold true the values which are most important to me. Aside from the friendly exterior, they work in an honest manner, with an ethical and professional attitude that is second to none.
We bought a fantastic apartment in Valencia two years ago and it would not have been possible without Found Valencia. They are the experts in the Valencia property market. Conor and his staff gave us first-class service, and helped us with the move, local administration, finding a school and everything else. That alone makes this a great service.
To buy or to build: a Belgian dilemma
You may have heard the proverb that Belgians are born with a brick in their stomach… we Belgians have this strange desire to build our own house, the sooner the better in our life. So you can imagine my dilemma when I decided to acquire a property in Valencia: shall I buy or build.
I believe the strength of FoundValencia really lies in the fact that they can do both! We visited quite some houses with Alberto, and as I didn’t seem to be able to find the modern house I wanted, I started to collaborate with Conor, the owner of the agency.
I also interacted with May and Angela to help me get started with my search and with setting up an Internet connection and satellite television. In all cases I have been impressed by their expertise, their customer-focus, listening to my needs and trying to accommodate them in the best possible way.
Sometimes it goes a bit slow in Spain, and, yes, I had to learn to cope with the Irish accent of Conor, but overall it has been a very pleasant journey!
And I finally bought a modern house and am planning some extension works with Conor as we speak.
So would I recommend you to work with FoundValencia: ABSOLUTELY.
I have pleasure of having known Conor professionally for over 10 years. As professional within the sector, as Constructing Architect & Developer in Valencia then I get many inquiries and there are very few personas/companies where I send my clients and relations, Fround Valencia is one to trust. They make a good honest work and give the right and correct professional service. Without any hesitation I can absolutely recommend him and his company to anyone considering buying a property in Valencia.
Conor is a good and completely honest professional
Here is the vote from the Cork/Serra jury.
In early 2015 we contacted Foundvalencia having researched other estate agencies and properties in the greater Valencia area.
Immediately Found valencia were very helpful and professional. We only had to make 2 trips from Ireland to find the villa we were looking for.
Foundvalencia made it so easy and seemed to tune in to exactly what we wanted and did not waste our precious time in looking at properties that were irrelevant to our needs. Conor Wilde, managing director could not have been more pleasant and helpful in assisting us in all our queries and relative info involved in purchasing property in Spain.
Christina and May from the office were amazing in the way they helped us through every detail Even to this day the backup service is excellent.
We would highly recommend Foundvalencia and we would have to give them top marks for a job so well done.
Annabeth y Brian.
We have known Conor professionally for over two years and without any hesitation can absolutely recommend him and his company to anyone considering buying or developing a property in Valencia. At present Conor is managing a large residential development project for us and we are extremely impressed with the level of service and commitment he has provided and the high standard and professionalism of all involved in this project.
We contacted 3 real estate agents in Valencia when wanting to buy a flat in Valencia. Already in the sales phase Connor, May and the other Found Valencia team members excelled over their competitors. They provided fair and accurate information on the different properties for sale and within our interest and budget.
Their valuable support continued at the same high level after we signed the sales contract up until today. Not only did Found Valencia help us with clear sales related aspects (contacts with authorities etc..) but they are also still there for all practical issues we have (getting internet connection installed; contact details of a plumber, which shops to go to for the stuff we need in our flat...) up till today many months after the actual sale.
Make Found Valencia Property your first stop if looking for a property in Valencia, city or region. A complete package of services delivered in a transparent, friendly and thoroughly professional manner. I thoroughly recommend
To anyone considering buying real estate in Valencia Spain.
We arrived to Valencia in early July of 2017 to search for a traditional mansion/period house. My husband contacted many of the major real estate agents and tried for over a week desperately to explain and find what we wanted in a property and area.
After seeing over 30 properties in a rather hot month of July, he gave up. We began to feel what we wanted didn't exist. Our allocated budget for the purchase was healthy but we were simply unable to find a home that met our criteria.
Then I called Found Valencia. The company owner Mr. Conor Wilde met us punctually in our hotel next morning and took us to one single property only. It was exactly what wanted! Size, price, architectural style, location, gardens, neighbourhood were all perfect.
We really felt we were being listened too. Mr. Wilde arranged an immediate meeting with owners, handled all negotiations, introduced us to surveyors and independent legal teams. His and his staffs manners were so professional, polite, friendly and efficient that for an international client planning to move to warm Valencia is just amazing.
Since our purchase, Mr Wilde and the team at Found Valencia has carried out a full extensive refurbishment of the house and gardens and we are truly delighted with the final result.
We fully recommend you deal with Found Valencia Property.
Mrs. M. Polli,
My wife and I purchased a rustic masia close to Valencia in the spring of 2017. The property with some outbuildings for renovation, a little land, basic mains electricity and a well, was the kind of place sensible folks run a mile from but others with an eye for a project and a smile in the hearts just can’t pass by.
From the earliest viewings Conor and Alberto were knowledgable and supportive, pointing out all the work that we would be taking on if we decided to move forward with a purchase and making certain we understood the realities of what that could mean whilst acknowledging the exciting potential of what could be achieved.
The unique nature of the farm being a listed building surrounded by agricultural fields yet within minutes of the city did start an interesting journey through local bureaucracy that without Found Valencia’s support and excellent recommendations for our legal representation and surveying work, we would probably never have completed.
Close to twelve months later we can only report positive support from the Found Valencia team covering everything from assisting in sourcing the necessary practicals such as building insurance, gardeners, plumbers and removal men right up to the more complex process of digging and installing a new water well and septic tank system. Though out this year the office and Conor were always available on the end of a phone or email and very welcoming if we simply wanted to stop by for a coffee and chat.
We have enjoyed a very positive experience with Found Valencia and one we’re very happy to share and recommend to others.
The Kings - January 2018
When my wife and I initially decided to relocate to Spain we contacted numerous estate agents for viewings of various properties we had on our list.
From the many agents we came to realize pretty quickly that not only the guys at FoundValencia were the most informed and reliable but also the most professional and attentive.
They dont just seek a sale, but a relationship based on trust and respect. We initially met with FoundValencia who showed us a few properties and offered us valuable info on advantages / disadvantages of various areas that helped us make our final decision.
They also gave us insight on schools and sporting activities which I am highly interested in, even going out of their way to find me a local BJJ school to continue my training. We then met Conor Wilde who is a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. Even now after a few months after completion we still keep in touch and he often calls to see how we get on.
His door is always open and he is always available to help with any queries or issues one might encounter with a big move (electricity supplier contracts, etc). Compared to England the exchange process ran smoothly and without hiccups.
Needless to say we are extremely pleased with the outcome and with the service and would definitely recommend FoundValencia to anyone seeking to buy in the Valencia area.
We started looking for a holiday place in Spain last year and I must say the process couldn’t have been made easier by Found Valencia.
Cristina worked with us from the very first time we requested to view some houses via email until we completed the sale this year. She short-listed the properties based on our preference and her recommendations were spot on.
She was very patient taking us around viewing opportunities, explaining to us the process and would always adjust to our time schedule (even on weekends). She was always very friendly and was very quick to respond to our queries either via email or mobile and is always available to discuss our concerns.
Even with some bumps in the property papers, she made sure that she got all the concerned parties lined-up to solve the issues. I will definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a property in Valencia.
With her vast knowledge of the area, the property market, coupled with her very good customer-service, you’re in very good hands with Cristina from Found Valencia.
Regards, Lyssa & Matt
To whom it may concern.
Mr. Alberto Molina of Found Valencia was our real estate agent when we asked to buy an apartment in the area of Valencia. He showed us apartments in the city center and villas outside the city. The explanations he gave us about each property were professional and wide-ranging. His English was excellent. One day our daughter felt bad and had a fever.
We are not Spanish citizens. Mr. Molina took care of her and took her to the doctor and did not leave us until he was sure she had the best treatment. He was also always willing to help with any question or request we had during the days of the search for the apartments.
The apartment we wanted to purchase, in the center of the Rusafa neighborhood, was owned by an unmarried couple, each of whom wanted something else. Each time there were other tunes from the sellers, Alberto said “does not worry it would end up with sell”. And indeed, after a road full of obstacles, the contract was signed.
But even then every progress was like a lot of nerves, and Alberto calmed us down and said that in the end everything would be good.
And so it was. We bought an apartment in the center of the Rusafa neighborhood with Found Valencia and we are very pleased with the purchase.
We had been talking about buying an apartment in Spain for years, but one of the things stopping us was the fear of dealing with such an important matter from overseas.
Thanks to Found Valencia we have now achieved this very important goal and are looking forward to enjoying our family holidays in sunny Valencia.
The first time we visited Valencia and met with Alberto we were immediately impressed with how well the properties he showed us matched our profile. Found Valencia made the process of buying very easy by introducing us to trustworthy lawyers and other professionals.
Alberto was very patient and professional during the negotiations and dealings with the property owner. Even after the purchase of the apartment was completed they have helped us find the right professionals for the renovation works to be done in the apartment and have been at hand to help with a lot more.
They have certainly surpassed our expectations with their kindness and professionalism. I could not recommend Alberto and the Found Valencia’s team any higher.
A very heart felt thank you.
Liz & Jean-Philippe Melon
To whom it may concern Of all the property companies we dealt with in our search for an apartment in Valencia Found Valencia stood head and shoulders above the rest.
In Celia we discovered an agent who sought out what we were looking for - unlike other agencies who took us to view what they wanted us to buy! She was unfailingly professional, courteous and warm and has an extensive knowledge of the property market in the city.
We had specific demands we knew we wanted met so our property hunt continued over a number of months and we finally found the right apartment.
Celia has arranged for a number of improvements to be carried out while we're back in the UK and has gone above and beyond the call of duty in helping us getting up and running, organising utilities and tradesmen in our absence. Post-transaction we have been very satisfied with the standard of work carried out and owe our enjoyment of our Valencian home in great part to Celia and the team.
We would recommend Found Valencia without any hesitation, sure in the knowledge that Conor, Celia and their colleagues will do a great job.
Yours Anna mac Cleod
It has been my heart felt want to move to a City in the Sun for some years now, not least for the outdoor living but for the very practical necessity that my career requires it.
After a number of years+ of looking via the new technology of the Internet & then visiting several areas from L'Amoplla to Torreveja with some very "pushy" Estate Agents, I found patients, great local knowledge & a sensitive heart in all of the Staff in Found Valencia Property.
Every aspect of a person’s needs from a different land is catered to, with a solid foundation & a wide pallete of local information, relevant practical skills (legal, financial, building etc), for a wide variety of budgets... and Always with quality & attention to detail.
My special thanks goes out : to the CEO, Conor Wilde for fulfilling his rasion d’ete regards quality & reputation. Thoroughly deserved - my main man for not giving up on me! To Alberto who looks past this client’s briefs into the heart for a total solution.
To Mayte for all her quiet but essential touches. To Isabel for all her after sales building & art deco care. Love, light & peace to all, really – massive care given – from one, part Irish person, to another Irish man & his team - Thank You!!
Alberto (Found Valencia) met us at our hotel on the second day of our visit to Valencia looking at properties.
He quickly had to alter his plans as there were areas that we didn’t want to visit as we had seen them the previous day. He efficiently readjusted so that we could view three other properties on that day. He took us to San Cristobal and parked outside a beautiful property .
After a tense few minutes trying to locate the electricity box to open the electric gates, we entered the villa and knew immediately that we had found our new home in Spain. Alberto’s knowledge of the property, location and surrounding areas was absolutely first class. His charming manner surpasses that of agent and client. He made us feel welcome as though we were already part of the community and even took us to a beautiful restaurant with superb food.
Having decided that we wanted the property , Alberto negotiated with the owner in Paris to secure a good price.
He went out of his way to assist us in every possible aspect to ensure the purchase went ahead successfully, even introducing us to solicitors who helped us tremendously.
We found Alberto’s attitude and aptitude for his job to be extremely professional, efficient, polite, charming and sincere. Alberto was a great help in assisting us to solve the minor hiccups that arose to ensure that our eventual move from England was a smooth passage.
We are eternally grateful to him for finding us our beautiful home.

From London City to a historic Masia beside Valencia City
My wife and I decided some years back that we would seek to spend the next chapter in our story in Spain. Being city kids we wanted to be close to a city but far enough away to enjoy quieter surroundings and a healthier environment. Having spent a year looking at Barcelona without finding anything that ticked all the boxes we chose to extend our search to Valencia which we remembered as a great place to visit with even better weather.
For our first trip having chosen three properties in different districts close to the city, Alberto met us at our hotel early in the morning to head off and view.
From our first contact with Found Valencia, be that searching properties on their informative and well stocked web site through to initial emails with the office and Alberto’s local knowledge and charm, we felt at ease and confident that we were in the hands of a professional team and outfit. Having expected that day would be the first of many such visits to the city to our complete surprise and pleasure we actually visited a property that had so much potential we decided that we would return for a second look with a mind to put in an offer of purchase.
The property was a quite historic rustic Masia with some outbuildings for renovation, a little land, basic mains electricity and a well. The kind of place sensible folks run a mile from but others with an eye for a project and a smile in the hearts just can’t pass by.
On our return visit Conor joined Alberto as we headed back out to the Masia and to his credit pointed out all the work that we would be taking on if we decided to move forward making certain we understood the realities of what that could mean whilst acknowledging the exciting potential of what could be achieved.
The unique nature of the farm being a listed building surrounded by agricultural fields yet within minutes of the city did start an interesting journey through local bureaucracy that without Found Valencia’s support and excellent recommendations for our legal representation and surveying work, we would probably never have completed.
Along the way being able to visit renovation work in progress on other properties that Conor and the team were managing for Found Valencia clients plus their post purchase assistance in looking at everything from helping with building insurance to sourcing a gardener has left us with nothing but a positive experience and one we’re very happy to share and recommend to others.
The Kings - Spring 2017
We had been trawling the internet for about two years looking for a property to buy in or near Valencia, Spain.
We engaged with several agencies but felt that the properties they were suggesting didn't quite meet our expectations or needs, then we "FOUND VALENCIA", an agency with a real personal touch. From the outset Alberto became our first point of contact.
Alberto took the time to really understand what it was we were looking for in a property and when we were in a position to travel to Valencia he had set up several viewings based on the information we had provided. When we arrived at the offices in L'Eliana we were introduced to Conor and he spent time reassuring us that Found Valencia would be with us every step of the way, from finding the right property, to purchase, to moving in. Alberto had suggested five properties to view that day, he was clearly extremely observant and obviously picked up our likes/dislikes and prior to the last property of the day Alberto said " I think you will really like this one".
We revisited that property the following day and Alberto clearly read us well because that's the property we went on to buy.
Alberto made the process completely stress free by initiating contact with all the right people, solicitors, surveyors and currency exchange agencies. We took ownership of our beautiful Spanish villa in L'Eliana in January this year. Found Valencia continue to play an important part in the internal remodelling of the house and again put us in touch with the people we need to make it all happen.
We would highly recommend Found Valencia as the 'go to' agency to 'Find' your 'Valencia' home.
Steve & Lesley Allan
We are a retired couple. We got the idea of moving to Spain after returning to live in U.K. from having lived in France.
We missed the sun & warmer climate! By researching on the Internet we first decided to go to Javea, near Alicante. Got in touch there with a local estate agency who arranged for us to visit several properties. We liked Javea & settled on one villa.
However due to complications with our house sale in U.K. we could not go ahead with the intended purchase. Then came 'Brexit' & the £ devalued but we still wanted to live in Spain. We decided to explore the immediate areas surrounding Valencia City.
We loved the location so much as it offers so many more facilities for entertainment, shopping, public services, a whole variety of places to go to & an international airport. We loved the fact that the area is Spanish and not a typical holiday resort.
We then came upon 'FoundValencia' on the internet and we were impressed with their well presented website, the factual information provided, the range of services on offer & the choice of listed properties within our price range in so many areas so we arranged a meeting in their offices with the owner of the company Mr Conor Wilde.
Alberto became our main contact & was very proactive, arranged appointments to fit our requirements. Met us in Valencia & took us in his car to view all the properties we had listed. It was a real pleasure to be driven around by such a pleasant, polite & helpful person. Nothing seemed too much trouble. We have found our new home & returned to U.K. Unfortunately our house sale in U.K. was full of complications, delays & much frustration compared to the easiness of the house purchasing process in Spain. But Conor Wilde, Managing Director of 'FoundValencia', helped us along keeping us reassured by regular telephone contacts & by being in constant negotiations with our Spanish vendors.
Basically it is due to Conor,s professionalism, patience & calm attitude that we have finally managed to get the house of our dreams! Then we arrived in Spain & encountered unforeseen problems. Again we are very grateful to the team at Found Valencia for coming to our rescue, finding solutions & keeping us updated.
During a freak storm one of our pine tree´s fell towards the man roof of our beautiful new home, It was the day before Christmas eve 2016. Immediately Found Valencia stepped in, problem solved. Five weeks in & we are already feeling 'at home. Found Valencia are having our property painted, electrical work and organizing many services we need, The process of moving from UK to Valencia has been altogether a long painful experience for us, but 'FoundValencia' has very much performed well above our expectations, we are so grateful.
We highly recommend them for their honesty helpfulness, friendliness & professionalism.

Found Valencia testimonial.
From Brian and Annabeth O’Reilly, Co Cork Ireland.
Having visited the city of Valencia a few years ago my wife and I agreed that it would be a nice area to buy a house nearby. Thus began the search for a suitable property within our budget. We had already looked at a number of properties through 5 or 6 estate agents in the Denia/Gandia area.
Our initial contact with Found Valencia was through e-mail whereby we outlined our requirements and our budget. All in all we looked at 3 properties with Found Valencia. The house we decided upon met all our requirements and is located just 24 Km from Valencia. We certainly would give thumbs up to Found Valencia for their expertise, professionalism and friendliness. Two of the girls from the office, Christina and May could not have been more helpful while Director Conor Wilde brought us through the process in a very careing, relaxed and efficient way.
Conor set up meetings for us with a solicitor and a Chartered surveyor. Both were excellent recommendations, as they proved very helpful and efficient too. Found Valencia made the whole process so easy and so pleasant for us. We first looked at the property during Easter 2015 and moved in on July 1st 2015, without a hitch. We must also compliment Found Valencia on their back up service following the purchase of the house; setting up direct debit accounts, a Spanish mobile, getting a local mechanic to check out a car and other day to day concerns which we encountered.
Conor from Found Valencia is a warm hearted gentleman and it was our good fortune and pleasure to have worked with him in purchasing our dream house through his team. Continued success to Conor and all at Found Valencia.

August 30th 2016
During a recent visit the beautiful city of Valencia, we realized that “this is the place we want to have a home!”
Upon returning home to California, we began to search the internet for properties/real-estate companies in Valencia to help us explore our desires. While researching many traditional real estate and companies designed to help foreign buyers purchase residential property in Spain, we found a wonderful website – “Found Valencia.” As we viewed each page of their beautifully designed webpage - reading about the company and the full scope of services they provide to the foreign buyer as well as seeing several pictures of each of their property listings, we knew immediately that this was just what we were looking for.
Via email, we explained our situation, and our interests and that we would be making a return visit to Valencia within the next several weeks.
The initial response to our inquiry was prompt and professional, courteous and completely in English ---- a true gift for those of ‘us’ who have not yet learned Spanish! Upon our return to Valencia, we met with Conor and his team. Conor took a great effort to fully explain the process of purchasing residential property in Spain as well as describing the services he and his team provide.
He even arranged for us to meet with a local English speaking attorney so that we had an opportunity to ask any questions and to guarantee that we had a full understanding of the all necessary components of buying a home – all of this on a Saturday because it best fit within our schedule. As we met with the Found Valencia agent, we again felt comfortable as we were able to discuss our needs and wishes (in English!) in a future home.
The agent then asked if we had some time that same afternoon so that we may see several properties and so that he could obtain a better sense of our likes/dislikes. After we returned to California, we received frequent emails with photos and descriptions of available properties. Even though we now had a distance of 6,000 miles, the frequency and completeness of communication was GREAT! We never felt abandoned or that our interest in buying a property was reduced because we were so far away.
Once we decided upon a particular property, the purchase process was seamless.
The Found Valencia team in association with the local attorney took care of all details—keeping us informed at each step of the process and helping to clarify any questions we had. Once the transaction was complete – we decided to remodel to the property. Conor coordinated a referral to a local designer whom we met and discussed our ideas. We immediately felt comfortable with Isabel and knowing that Conor and his team knew of her quality of work and customer service, we were happy to work with her.
Once our concepts and the plan was set, Isabel coordinated all aspects of the construction remodeling - from appliances, fixtures and tile, to lighting, furniture and curtains.
We are very pleased with the final product! We feel so fortunate that we met Conor and the team at Found Valencia. We believe that without their assistance, the realization of owning a home in Spain would not have been possible.

Lisa and I would like to thank the Found Valencia Sales and Decorating Teams for their help and fantastic services in purchasing and decorating our Valencia Apartment In particular we would like to recognize Eva and Isabel for finding us the perfect retirement home and assisting with issues that developed after the purchase.
Both Eva and Isabel constantly went the extra mile and were extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process.
We truly felt from the beginning that we could trust Found Valencia and that they had our best interests at heart. I can’t say enough about the expertise, attentiveness, warmth and professionalism that the Found Valencia team brought to this process. Thanks to them, we have our “forever home” in an up-and-coming neighborhood, and we can’t wait to move in and start the next chapter of our lives.
We could not have been any more pleased and impressed, and we would recommend Found Valencia to anyone.
Thanks again Found Valencia for a wonderful job.

To whom it may concern.
My wife and I decided to buy a property in Valencia in 2015 and we worked with several agencies in the searching and the viewing processes. Found Valencia were easily the most proactive and helpful of them all, with unmatchable knowledge of the region and a real desire to help the client find their dream home in the area.
When we had problems with aspects of the purchase process and also after completion, Conor and Alberto were incredibly helpful in resolving them and constantly worked to support us with local issues when we were abroad and they both, along with their colleagues, continue to provide advice and assistance with life in Valencia even now.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking about buying a property in the Valencia region Will and Angela Cummins
Thanks to Found Valencia Real Estate we found our second dream home last year in Valencia, Spain.
As we prepare to move from USA to Europe we want to express our heartfelt thanks to all the personnel at Found Valencia Real Estate especially to Mr. Alberto Molina for assisting and keeping us inform with every single step of the buying-purchasing process.
Mr. Molina went above and beyond meeting our needs and expectations by not only showing us the properties but also pointing out where we could go for services, groceries, entertainment, nearby cities, he was very knowledgeable and professional at all times.
Thank you for all your time and assistance. With our appreciation and thanks,

Found Valencia team was fantastic throughout the entire process.
We have definitely found our dream apartment with their help in the shortest possible time.
The firm has a very good knowledge of the market as well as an access to very interesting and unique properties. We worked closely with Celia Quevedo and she was extremely responsive, and was willing to spend as much time as possible to make sure we have seen all properties that could potentially match our needs.
Celia operated with integrity throughout the process and proved her trustworthiness and work ethic at every stage. Even after the closing Celia was willing to assist with her advice on moving and settling into Valencia which was very kind of her.
Another member of the team Isabel Romero was extremely helpful in supporting and overlooking the renovation works to refresh our apartment before moving in.
We were extremely happy with the results.
I would recommend Found Valencia to anyone looking to buy property in Valencia without any hesitation.
Paul and I just wanted to say thank you for finding our Valencian home or as we call it our haven.
When we hear of problems other new friends had purchasing their homes we realize how lucky we were to have Found Valencia as our agent and Martin as our Solicitor.
Here's to many more happy years.

As one could imagine it is not a trivial task to relocate yourselves half way around the world (Southern California, U.S.A) without a lot of plannings and assimilating all the desired conditions for you and your family.
You would essentially need to be imagining what is it like living in a new home, what are the opportunities for your child for Universities and colleges, how might you be able to invest and create jobs and additional income for your family, and contemplate answers for many more questions before feeling confident about your big decision.
Found Valencia understands and works with you to help you gain the understanding you need to acquire. They will help you understand about locations that might be best for your particular needs to live, the market places that you can shop, the universities that your child could opt to attend. Moreover they offer to work with you in buying a place where you can renovate to your personal liking.
They try to give you honest break down of how much does it cost to buy a place suitable for upgrade and how they can help in upgrading the place for you. If you are looking to build a life in Valencia, I definitely recommend working with Found Valencia to realize your dreams.
"Found Valencia was indeed a great find, prompt and responsive, helping to find properties that met our needs, and guiding us on the dos and dont's of finding a dream home in a foreign land.
July 2016 I spent long time looking for my dream in Spain and I found it through Found Valencia.
They are not only the most professional and knowledgeable agency in Valencia, they are the trust you will be looking forward here in Valencia. I would surely recommend Found Valencia to any family member or friend without any hesitation.

We take this opportunity to write to you with our thoughts about the service we received from Found Valencia in connection with our purchase of a house in L'Eliana.
We found the overall experience very positive and stress-free. Our first contact was a phone call with Ellen who explained clearly and thoroughly the process of buying property in Valencia. She also provided an estimate of costs which helped with our planning. From then on, Ellen stayed in touch at every step of the way.
We also encountered several other courteous and professional people at this agency who all made sure problems were addressed quickly and to our satisfaction. Thus, special mention also goes to the brilliant Cristina and May while Conor always had his door (and phone line) open in case anything came up. It is not an exaggeration to say that Found Valencia is a top notch real estate company which provided us with the complete high quality service we expected and much more!
They also helped tremendously with post-closing arrangements including setting up utilities. It is because of this professionalism and continuous pre- and post-sale support that we gladly recommend Found Valencia to the discerning buyer.

Thank you Found Valencia for helping make our dream of a vacation home in Spain come true.
Celia & Isabel your help and support have been second to none. First of all, you located the property that has met all our wishes and needs even after searching for months online ourselves previously.
The entire process was straightforward and handled with the utmost professionalism. Within two days of arriving in Valencia, we had made our decision. The subsequent help and support post purchase have been equally impressive as we attempt to settle in. The services provided by Found Valencia have been invaluable, such as arranging cleaning services and scheduling repairs.
Found Valencia even managed to have the property painted, with all the inconveniences that entailed, while we were away prior to moving in. And upon our arrival, we are now in the process of shopping for furniture which the representative from Found Valencia has made as pleasant as possible.
We are receiving advice from their interior decorator who is giving us personal attention including meetings at our property and driving us to visit various factories and shops. A big thumbs up for found Valencia!
It will be my pleasure to tell everyone I know about this experience! June 2016
To Whom it may Concern My wife and I just wanted the world to know that we have discovered one of the very best estate agents we have ever met.
We were looking to buy a property near Valencia and were recommended a company called “Found Valencia”. What a wonderful recommendation it was. From the minute we entered the door of their office we were very impressed with their knowledge, experience and kindness. We are two people from The UK without any experience of buying properties abroad. We were nervous and wary but their staff were magnificent and soon put us at ease.
Over the space of three days we were taken to various properties by the charming and knowledgeable Cristina and on the third day with her help, we found the property that we are now in the process of buying. Earlier she had taken us to different and various properties, spent time giving us full details of them, and for the two of us without the language skills, It was great she and her colleagues spoke English so well.
Three days later we were more like friends than clients and we have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to anyone.
Conor Wilde is the Managing Director and he is ably supported by a team of young, clever people. What we loved about Found Valencia is their wonderful support which we know will continue once we have made our move to Spain.
Joe & Apryl Moore England June 2016
Testimonial During the week 25th April to 30th April 2016, we visited the Valencia area with the aim of identifying potential properties for our planned relocation to Spain (from Germany).
Before this visit, we had expressed interest in properties advertised on the website of Found Valencia. We not only received e-mails containing all the information requested, but also a long telephone call from Conor Wilde, who gave us background information on the area in general, and desirable locations in particular. Conor also enquired about our requirements in great detail, in order to be able to present suitable properties to us.
Our first meeting with Conor took place on 25th April 2016, during which he introduced further properties to us. Due to his vast experience, Conor was able to give us valuable advice on certain points that we had not considered before, such as road accessibility to properties, costs to be expected when local authorities decide to turn “colonies” into “urbanisations”, and – probably most important to us – access to public transport systems in the event of decreasing mobility during older age.
This was very helpful to us during the following days, when we viewed properties with other agents, as we were in a much better position to decide whether a property was suitable for us, or not. On Friday, 29th April 2016, Conor introduced us to his associate Cristina Fuster, who spent the entire day showing us properties in different areas, based on our specific requirements.
Cristina also provided us with a lot of information on each area, local customs and traditions, and life in Spain in general. She turned a long and exhausting day into a very pleasant experience. We have not made an offer for any of the properties we visited during that week. Back in Germany, we provided Found Valencia with a detailed feedback on each of the properties we saw.
Since then, Cristina has been presenting new properties to us by e-mail, each one tailored to our exact requirements.
To summarise, thanks to Found Valencia, and their combined expertise, we now have a much clearer picture of what we are looking for. Unlike many other agents (in every country), Found Valencia are not trying to close a deal at all cost, if they are convinced that the property is not suitable for their client.
With this attitude, and way of conducting business, Found Valencia have earned our trust and respect. Saludos cordiales, Bill and Sabine
My experience with Found Valencia A few weeks ago, by moving the workplace, we sold our home and with Found Valencia Real Estate, it has truly been a pleasure dealing with them.
Both Conor and his team are great professionals handle a wide international market customers.
They worry all the details that satisfy both buyer and seller .. Congratulations for your work!
My name is Marina Markova and I am the customer of your real estate. I want to express my appreciation for your work you have done for me for the purchase of property in Valencia.
Above all, I want to thank Ellen Snurnitsyna for your attention, care and friendly atmosphere. The sale of my apartment was made possible thanks to her efforts and time dedicated to me. Mine purchase of property in Valencia was performed with her active participation in the preparation of my documents including the opening a bank account, working in conjunction with the lawer, help with translation of my official documents and many other things.
Since at this time in my country (Ukraine), there is a suspension of foreign exchange transactions by residents of the country in abroad, for me (as a citizen of Ukraine) it was hard to do everything right and according to the law without the help of people living in Spain, without people who know the rules and laws of this country in questions acquisition of property by non-residents of Spain. And this person is Elena Snurnitsyna. At our first meeting she explained clear everything to me what I had to do to become the owner of an apartment in Valencia. We had developed a plan of action.
And now I am a happy owner of an apartment in Valencia.
Once more, thanks very much to Ellen and to everyone for the excellent work !!! Good luck and I wish you to find many good customers !!!
Mid last year we decided to buy a house in Spain (Valencia area). After visiting several websites offering real estate around Valencia we decided to contact “Found Valencia”!
The main reason(s) to contact this office:
1/ A very professional website;
2/ A wide range of pictures, spec’s, etc…
regarding the house(s) and facilities around the property.
We can state that due to this information we already had a clear view regarding the area, possibilities, etc… Upon we decided to bring a visit to Valencia and contacted upfront the real estate company “Found Valencia” to make an appointment. Prompt we were getting a reply. After some pleasant mails up and down, a selection has been made regarding the houses we were interested in.
Direct we had a good feeling and relation with the professionals from this agency. Very professional and the communication in English was excellent. After arriving in Valencia (our first visit), our first impression: beautiful city and area! A meeting with the agent has been scheduled in advance. The office was easy to find. Located in the center of Valencia. Representative(s) of the office were expecting us. A complete file has been prepared regarding the selection of the houses.
Together with Mr Connor, the representative of the office, we were analyzing these files. He explained us in detail the procedures regarding buying a house in the Valencia area. Additionally, he provided us with the info regarding the advantages/disadvantages of the selection of the houses. We left to the area we wanted to buy a house (Alberic – 40km outside Valencia city). Mr. Connor explained and informed us continuously the advantages/disadvantages regarding each house we visited. In a very open and trustful way.
After visiting a certain range of houses (even which were not on the list), we informed him that we were willing to buy one of the houses we visited. Returned on the office, we were discussing with Mr. Connor the procedure to start up the buying process. He (or his colleagues) was (were) assisting us where necessary. We decided to buy the house mid October 2014 and mid December 2014, the house was ours! During that period, the agency assisted us in all possible ways.
Not just in the procedure to buy the house but also regarding the follow up once the deal was closed. One call/mail to the office and they were trying to help us out! And always successfully. As a foreigner, not speaking the local language and without knowledge of the area and the people around, this is the support and assistance
You can only wish.
And we can state: It’s not only a wish…In reality you are getting that support from that agency!!!!!
Bottom line we are of the opinion that “Found Valencia” represented by her agent and his colleagues were (and still are) providing us with an excellent help and support!!!!
On them You can count.
And please note: also after the house is bought!
Our thanks to Mr Connor and his colleagues!
If, like us, you were looking to buy a property in the Valencia region, you would want to find a reliable and trustworthy agent who would act honestly on your behalf.
Having investigated a number of estate agents and their websites, Found Valencia appeared to tick all the boxes. Our experience proved this to be true. Conor Wilde, Managing Director of Found Valencia www.foundvalencia.com , quickly understood our requirements and was able to match them with a good selection of viewing opportunities.
He always responded promptly to our phone calls and requests for information, and his colleague, Fiona, was extremely supportive and sympathetic to our needs. Needless to say, we bought a property, in the centre of Valencia. Found Valencia managed the transactions smoothly, all within two months. Since our purchase, Conor and Found Valencia have continued to provide services and support, helping us to feel secure in our new home.
We would recommend Found Valencia to you without reservation. Keith and Sue Clark (UK)
I was impressed by how closely Conor Wilde and his team at Found Valencia had taken our brief on board.
When I arrived on the scene to give approval (or not) to the apartment my wife suggested, which she had chosen with Conor’s help and excellent local knowledge, he showed us some alternatives which only confirmed the initial option. It met all requirements my wife and I had listed. He was attentive, courteous, friendly and helpful to a fault, as was his assistant, who also took us shopping for light fittings and many other items we needed to get settled.
As far as I can gather he delivered on all promises including meetings with the developer. It gave me confidence that this will continue, as he said he was “in it for the long term.” He gave sensible advice on property in Valencia and relocating to Spain and information on the Valencia area and its Spanish and ex pat communities.
He has many useful contacts and suppliers, but ultimately one must assemble one’s own list of electricians, plumbers and so on but we are confident that Found Valencia Property is simply only a phone call away if needed. He was so keen to give us lifts everywhere to understand the local areas of Valencia; we needed to remember to scout out the local area ourselves.
So far, having moved in two months ago, we have been extremely happy with our purchase and choice of Real Estate Agent.
"We booked in a few days property hunting within a 1 hour radius of Valencia at Easter this year. After hours spent researching everything online and picking agencies and properties to view we arranged to spend days with 4 different agents. The difference in professionalism from Conor Wilde at Found Valencia ( www.foundvalencia.com )was apparent before we even left the UK. On an initial email request for more information he immediately responded (even though it was a Sunday night) and arranged a Skype call to chat through the properties we had selected and confirm our requirements to ensure they would be suitable. With the other 3 agencies, I was lucky if I had an email returned in 2 or 3 days and I had to keep chasing for photos/answers to questions and keep re-confirming our appointment times as they kept mislaying the info! When we actually got out for the viewings, there was no comparison. Conor was smartly dressed, completely informed about every part of the property he was showing us around, challenged our requirements appropriately and pointed out details as we went that you wouldn't think to look out for, such as guttering (you take this as standard in the UK but not in Spain), wall finishes, drainage, mains utility connections etc. The other agents took us to the properties and then let the owners show us round. They were unable to answer the most basic of questions - what's the nearest supermarket, what direction is the garden facing and had no real estate agent skills/knowledge - they were very amateurish and only 1 of the other 3 could speak any Spanish. Conor speaks fluent Spanish at business level.
We decided then and there that we would only be comfortable buying a property through Found Valencia and they were also the only agent to offer after -sales service to ensure that we had a smooth & hassle free purchase. Wind forward 4 months and we have purchased a property that we are delighted with in Alberic. Conor worked with our solicitor and bank to ensure completion was moving forward at the pace we required and has since organized everything we needed (including overseeing the building work whilst we are in the UK and translating anything that was in Spanish) from having a new alarm system installed, balconies replaced, garden gates installed, pool man, cleaner etc. Nothing is ever too much trouble and he understands that we are busy people so is always happy to talk to us out of hours in the evenings/weekends when it is convenient for us. We have no hesitation in recommending Conor Wilde and Found Valencia and wish them every success in continuing to grow the business as they stand head and shoulders above their competitors.
