Hi Gio,

On returning from our four week trip we cannot thank you enough for the help and support you provided in helping us to purchase our home in Almoradi,Spain. After our offer was accepted you recommended a solicitor and currency exchange company, you took us to the police station in Elche at 7.00 am for our N.I.E. registration and personally introduced us to your own local bank where we opened a joint bank account. Finally you were there yet again to provide your support with Alicia our solicitor at the Notaries for completion of the sale contract. Everyone you recommended was very agreeable and helpful and enabled our apartment to be purchased as a pleasurable experience. We have no hesitation in recommending you and your company G.R. Sunshine Properties for your excellence friendly professional service.

Our Best Regards

Ron & Sheila Clarke

Delighted Clients

Dear Gio and Luca,

We are halfway through the process of buying our villa which will be a new build,just completed the purchase of the land. We wanted to thank Gio and Luca for their assistance in the whole process . The both of them were very willing to work outside the box to make the whole process easier . Spain had or maybe still has a bad reputation but Gio and Lucas teamed us up with a very understanding and trustworthy builder ( yes they are still about) and all gone well. We are glad to have met Gio and his team and thoroughly recommend them to any one looking to buy in Spain for a new build property and look forward to working with them to onward completion.

best regards
Andy and Lesley Fernandes.

Thanks again and may you continue to provide a brilliant service for the future. All the best . Ian morton.

“Gio did an excellent job helping me selecting the right plot to build my family’s dream house. My time was limited for the house hunt when I flew in to Alicante, but Gio blocked a few days off to show me around and introduced me to a great developer and an architect whom have all demonstrated great professionalism and effectivity – right from being a great host to closing the deal. Gio has also been very helpful and patient with answering my questions and he will be definitely be my first choice if I want to sell my house in the future as well.”

New property in Almoradi

GR Sunshine Properties,

Dear John (Gio) I am writing to thank your agency for their advice in buying a Home in Almoradi,We didn’t think wewould need any help from an Estate Agent, aswefound a Home forourselves already;It was a lovely semi-detached Villa in El Banet. GR Properties told us we had nothing to lose, and as we were already there we should at-least look at a few more properties as we were about to make a huge decision. We took on their advice and were glad wedidbecause with their help we found a much better detached Villa for the exact same price in the same place. To anyone reading this, we would highly recommend taking GR Sunshine Properties on as your Estate Agents, We’re certainly glad we did.

With much gratitude

Hi John

Thanks for all your help in the sale of our Apartment, we are very pleased with the sale and your services.  You gave us good advise all along  when you suggested we wait for the right price.    We are happy we did that.     We would recommend you to friends if they were selling or buying a property.

Actually a lady who use to look after our apartment asked for your details so I have passed them on to her.

Regards  and thanks


Fiona and Pat.

Sale of our Villa in El Banet, Almoradi, Alicante

During May 2015 my wife and I were looking to buy a villa in the Alicante region of Spain. Our brief was a new build, away from the coast with views of the country side, with land and close to a town. We saw advertised a beautiful white villa in Pinoso on the GR SUNSHINE PROPERTIES website and contacted them direct.


John Rizzo contacted us in return immediately, and answered all the initial questions that we had. We arranged to fly over and meet with him and Henry, John’s Building partner in Pinoso at the company offices. We were shown numerous villa designs but we stayed with the villa we fell in love with and opted for a 180m, 4 bedroom build with 10 x 5 M salt water pool.


Throughout our short stay we were shown several building plots, but our criteria were demanding. Eventually we were shown a plot in Ubeda of 12000m with 360 degree mountain views, and we knew this was the one for us. We were told the process would be fully legal, and a build time of 8 months was quoted.


We returned excited to the UK and appointed a local lawyer, in Pinoso to act on our behalf. The legal process was entirely different to the UK were the buyer is the developer, and the land had to be purchased by the developer i.e. us, This process at first seemed very strange, and we were initially a little sceptical, but our lawyer reassured us that this was normal, and stage payments would be required at various stages during the build. The contact was drawn up and was duly signed.


Work started on the plot in September 2015 when the foundations were laid. During the period leading up to this several meetings were held with John and Henry and a very good relationship was formed.


Throughout the build every week religiously, Henry sent on average 30-50 photographs of the build progress and this was something we looked forward to on cold winter Friday nights in the UK. Nothing was too much trouble in getting the build just as we wanted with modifications, and we decided to add a separate 30M barbeque building and double garage which were accommodated with so much ease.



In late April 2016 precisely on time, we took delivery of our beautiful villa and moved in. The quality of the build is first class, outstanding in fact and we are both delighted with the result. Small items that needed attention, which is usual, were corrected almost instantly.


We have no hesitation at all in recommending the services and Henry and John, and indeed our layer Pilar Penalver. Please feel free to call at anytime if you wish to speak to us direct about our project, and if we are at the villa, feel free to call and pop along and look for your self.


Trust in people is important when you enter into such an under taking, and financial commitment as ours, and these people you can trust entirely, and we also hope we have made new friends in the process as we start our new life in Spain.
