Testimonials

 

I used Velmar Estate in 2008 having been let down by another agent, I’m NW England based and the travel options were rather limited so I was heavily reliant on Velimir and Marta to sort out the sale of my property.
It was extremely painless, other than a rather hectic weekend spent running between various government establishments and jumping through the many hoops, but they were both extremely helpful and patient, and gave up their time to ensure the sale went through without a hitch.
I am very grateful to Velimir and Marta for their help, I entrusted them with my finances and they continue to manage my other interests in Bulgaria, I would fully recommend them as a proactive, trustworthy, friendly and professional company.

We had been trying to sell our property in Bulgaria for 2 years with no success. Then our english neighbours recommended Velmar Estate from Balchik to us as they had quickly sold their house through his company. Within 24 hours of contacting Velimir Aneshtev, he had found us a buyer!! The process of selling our house was made so easy as he took care of everything and always kept us informed of what was happening. The house was sold and the deal completed within less than 2 months.
We cannot recommend his company enough. They have taken all the stress out of the selling of our house and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone wishing to sell their property.

My wife, Joanne and I first met Velimir and Marta when they first operated Velmar Real Estate from a small premises in Balchik. It was our second time visiting Bulgaria.  The previous year we had purchased a block of land in Tsarka near Albena, and we wandered into their office just to compare prices etc. Our fleeting visit turned into an afternoon session and they showed us just about every available block in Balchik. We had visited other agencies in Balchik and were impressed with the honesty and knowledge of the local area that Velmar had. We did mention that other agencies had told us about really cheap blocks that, although presently unregulated, would be regulated the following October. Velimir told us that this was a line that certain agencies spun to all gullible off-shore buyers, and true to his word these blocks are still unregulated seven years later and are unlikely to be so.

We were so impressed with their professionalism, that we actually bought a block of land through Velmar in the villa area in Balchik. From that day on we have utilised Vel and Marta in every aspect of the development of the land. They have, with our permission, intercepted and translated all our official mail and have saved us untold fines and penalties by getting all our taxes and company fees paid on time. They sourced reliable architects, surveyors and tradesmen to build our Bulgarian House. During this time they have had power of attorney to handle all our business, including bank accounts and have done so with the utmost honesty. The quality of building is excellent and was completed at a very fair and reasonable price. During the construction they kept us informed with photographs of the progress on a weekly basis. Now that the house is almost ready for summer rentals, we will, of course leaving Velmar to handle this for us. We have watched them grow from selling property to managing, and maintaining all types of property and also project managing quite large building projects. They have even helped with the furnishing, passing on the discounts they get.
I would highly recommend Velmar to anybody wishing to buy land or build in Bulgaria. They have taken all the stress out of undertaking such a project in the sometimes harassing Bulgarian Property Industry.

In 2006 we purchased a property in Balchik, Bulgaria. As we live in the UK it was very important to find a managing agent who would look after our property and give us peace of mind whilst we were in the UK. Over the years we have had two managing agents. The first was an English company who turned out to be so unreliable and cheats. The second again was an English company who in the main were suitable but not up to our standard. We spoke to people and were recommended to speak with Velmar Real Estate Agency. Having arranged a meeting I was pleased to meet Velimir and Marta the owners of the company. Having spoken with them at length we decided that these are the people we wished to manage our property. Since signing the contract I cannot speak highly enough on their behalf. Anything I have asked them to oversee on our behalf has been carried out with the utmost proffessionalism. They have recently overseen a complete rebuild of our kitchen whichI must say looks beau tiful. During our rental season all of our guests have spoken so highly of the committment Velimir and Marta have shown them and have reacted immediately to any of their needs. Veli and Marta are Bulgarian who possess a complete grasp of the English language. If you require anything in Bulgaria they have the right contacts and probably the cheapest and they have assisted us in so many ways. I could sing their praises all day long but suffice to say if you want a professional company with great people running the business who will give you peace of mind and ensure your property is looked after properly and a very competetive price then it is Veli and Marta all day long for me. The both of them are building a great reputition for themselves and it is so well deserved. Don't take my word for it go and meet this fine couple and you will see for yourselves that they stand head and shoulders of the rest of the competition.

In 2008 we decided to invest in a property in Bulgaria.

Several Bulgarian agencies showed us around and so we met also with the Velmar Estate - a young company run by Marta and Velimir. After we had seen a numerous amount of properties from different agencies - we decided to go for a house offered by Velmar Estate. From the first moment we had a good feeling with Marta and Velimir. Their approach is very professional and matching our needs.
When we bought our house near the black sea it was very clear that we need a pool in our garden. Of course Velmar Estate supported us in every stage of the project. As Velimir and Marta live locally so they have an excellent knowledge about the specific Bulgarian circumstances.
As the owner of a holiday home we really much depend on a reliable service during the time when we are not in Bulgaria. Again Velmar Estate is there to assist us in any kind of property management. So they maintain our Garden, the house is always clean when we are there and of course our pool is getting a regular service. Also they give us very valuable advices in terms of dealing with local authorities (tax matters, electricity company, security company, etc).
After all we are very happy that we have found such a reliable partner in Bulgaria and we can highly recommend Velmar Estate.

Living in Goa it was never going to be easy to buy property in Bulgaria, or so we thought! Then we were introduced to Velmar Estate Agency. When we first met them it quickly became obvious that the directors, Velimir and Marta were going to make the whole process much easier than we could ever have imagined. From the moment they collected us from the airport until the moment we took possession of the property, they looked after every single detail large and small, and they continue to do so. During the time we were with them they not only worked incredibly hard on our behalf, but they also somehow found time to make us feel part of the family.

In our opinion, they are a very professional team who really do care about their clients and are a pleasure to work with.

Thank you Velimir and Marta

We bought our home in Sokolovo through Velmar Estates about three years ago, and we were very pleased with the help we received and the courtesy shown to us throughout. This was our second purchase in Bulgaria and the experience with Velmar was very different to the one in Varna. We are happy to endorse the quality of service from their team.

From first walking through the door of Velmar Estates until final completion Val & Marta have been professional and yet warm & friendly at all times. They guided us through a smooth transaction but it didn’t stop there. They are always happy to assist and even go with you to do the ‘official’ things when they know there is no-one who speaks English. We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wishing to purchase over here.

We were introduced to Velmar estates to build us a villa. From the first meeting we could tell how sincere and consciencous Vel and Marta are. They worked seven days a week and late into the night to keep us informed of the progress, by phone, e-mail and pictures.
Their enthusiasm for the building, as if their own was professional, personal and caring. The hardest thing we had to do was choose the colour of the paint. They are now managing our villa with the same dedication. We would highly recommend Velmar Estates for any of their services.
