The Living Blue Mallorca Team

The beautiful blue sea and the blue-sky help to relieve us from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, giving us a wonderful sense of freedom and quality of life here.

Apart from our property sales and rental listings, we also offer our services as a Personal Property Finder. The market often seems full of property listings but your dream home is not amongst them? This happens to many people. Apart from our online listings we have a selection of properties that are not officially listed on the market due to the owners requests for discretion. By using our personal property finder service many people have already found their dream home. 

 

Living Blue Mallorca supports you from the very first phone call throughout the whole buying, selling or rental process; including viewings, negotiations, contracts, and even after the conclusion of the contract we offer an after sales service including the changeover of water and power supply, handing over the keys etc. to ensure a smooth transition into your new home.

 

We are looking forward to meeting you.
