Amanda Butler first fell in love with the Island of Mallorca on holiday in the year 2000. It didn’t take long to decide this was where her future lay, leaving the United Kingdom behind her and arriving in Mallorca to stay in 2002.
With over 15 years in international sales and marketing, in addition to experience in property, Amanda set her mind to familiarising herself with Mallorca and the local real estate market, starting work with one of the most established real estate agents on the Island.
In April 2004 she met Spike Thompson, a long established resident and business man in Mallorca for over 10 years. Together they pooled their resources and local knowledge and started to develop the concept behind mallorcapropertydirect.com. With an inside track on the industry, and a knowledge of the competition, they set about developing a site that offered what no other real estate company seemed to offer – an insiders guide to Mallorca, a comprehensive guide to buying, selling and renting, and most important of all, a choice.
The concept was started by detailing what information is necessary to enable any individual to make an informed decision about the buying, selling or renting of a property, prior to engaging professional legal advice.
In addition we felt it important to provide information about the island and its locations for those unfamiliar with Mallorca. Not in place of a guide book, but offering a general overview; this part will be ongoing – growing and being updated on a regular basis – after all it is a big island and there's a lot to talk about! Not wanting to forget the resident community, and knowing that good restaurants, bars, and entertainment are crucial to the enjoyment of relaxation time, we have added a Restaurant Guide, and in due course, a What's On Guide, to keep everyone up to date with the latest restaurants and entertainment available.
Inevitably, the presentation of the properties is key to a good property website, and so we endeavoured to provide more information about a property than any other web site we have seen, or indeed, more than a real estate agent normally provides.
And so the concept of mallorcapropertydirect.com was born.
As the Website has evolved and time has progressed, we are delighted to announce that interest has been shown in taking this concept to other destinations. Watch out for propertydirectworldwide.com Partnerships opening up in other key destinations across the globe. For further information about PDW-Partnership opportunities click here.
For the first time in Mallorca we believe we are offering a real choice. Providing one of the most comprehensive property sites in Spain, as well as the help and support you need if you wish to buy, sell or rent a property yourself.
For owners we are on the other end of a telephone to provide help with loading (adding) a property onto our site. And you don't even need to have full access to the internet, we can come to your home and do it all for you with our Sell Direct Silver Membership (Rent Direct – Gold Membership). Translation services can also be provided with our Sell Direct Gold Membership, or over the email for rentals as a free service. We even offer a full service Platinum Membership similar to an estate agent for sellers, offering representation by experienced professionals but on a set fee basis, and at a fraction of the price. But most importantly, where you can personally interject or even take over the transaction directly, during final negotiations or anywhere along the way.
For Buyers, Holiday Rentals or Long Term Rentals - You needn’t fear working without an agent – our aim is to provide you with enough detailed information to assist you every step of the way, from start to finish. As well as the comprehensive information provided on the site, we are on the other end of the telephone to help with any queries or questions you may have, to help guide you through the process, to the point where the help of a professional legal adviser is required, the same as working with any estate agent.
But unlike any estate agent, and the best thing about it is, we are completely COMMISSION FREE! So both the owner and the buyer, and even the rental client are benefiting from more realistic prices since you will be dealing direct, with no expensive commission fees.
mallorcapropertydirect.com is proud to offer a localised and personal service for our clients, whether they be owners, buyers, rental clients, or even an individual with a general enquiry of a non property related nature. All our advice or guidance will be on an individual, one-to-one basis.
As the concept of propertydirectworldwide.com grows, it will remain a separate entity, and will not detract from the personalisation offered to our local customers in Mallorca. However, as the number of Partnerships increase, and the product awareness expands, the potential of an extensive global network will inevitably open up an infinite, exciting forum for all customers within the propertydirectworldwide.com brand.
