                                         Thanks once again John Gio, Kind regards  Tony & Judy Downey

Very helpful and knowledgeable

Dear John Gio,

Thank you so much for your great help, from start to finish, in the finding and purchase of our villa in Montgo, Javea.

Whilst we first met in the South, when you understood our requirements you suggested we look in Costa Blanca North….great advice as we loved the whole area.

You showed us many properties and advised in the negotiation of our final choice….again vital as, although a relatively new property, it needed a complete re-modelling and had to be at the right price.

Lastly, thank you for putting in contact with such good people. Obviously a good solicitor but also, crucially for us, Steve and Rob for all the design and building work. It has been a huge comfort to us to have built up such a great team in Spain.

John Gio, we couldn’t have done it without you!

Many thanks and kind regards

Great company and personal service beyond expectations

Hi John Gio, GR Sunshine Properties,
This year, my husband and I decided to purchase a property in Murcia.
We were looking for a holiday home. Something that was traditional, homely and good value for money.
As we were new to the area, we were very lucky to have found David Barrett!!! who works for GR Sunshine Properties.
He took us under his wing and helped us from the very moment we stepped of the plane on our very first visit.
He listened to all we had to say and answered all our questions. He knew exactly what we wanted and within no time at all he found our perfect dream home in the sun!
He is such a warmhearted, friendly man! He took us shopping for groceries and all kinds of items for the house on many occasions. Drove us from and to the airport many times. He is always on the end of the phone if we need anything or have any questions.
He has recommended trustworthy workmen but most importantly of all, Dave had now become a true and dear friend! And this friendship will truly grow each time we make a visit.
He must be a valuable asset to you John Gio!
Kind Regards

Property in Murcia

Good afternoon John,

Thank you.  I can honestly say that the process was carried out with the utmost professionalism and turned out to be a most entertaining experience!  From start to finish my anxieties were put to rest and any queries I had, of which there were quite a few, were answered in an informed, calm and professional manner.  I was put at ease every step of the way by Dave and his associates.  I had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun along the way.  My criteria for buying were listened to and as a result the properties shown were really down to personal taste.  Once the price on the property was agreed, appointments were made very quickly to get the ball rolling on the legal side and to save time.  The process was much easier than I expected, but this had to be as a result of the organisation going on behind the scenes to make everything run smoothly.

May I take this opportunity to thank you and Dave for all you have done.  I would not hesitate to recommend GR Sunshine Properties.

Kind regards

Great Experience

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.

Sale of our Apartment

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

“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.”
Your friend, Hakim Meftah
