                We have bought land and are having a house built through Cretan Developments who are based in Chania, http://www.cretandevelopments.com They also have an office in Elounda, http://www.eloundaproperty.com

                The process isn’t quite finished yet but so far everything has gone exactly to schedule and the company have been highly professional and very helpful. They are also very nice people.

                    Hi,

                    If Rethymno isn’t too far out of your way, I would recommend Domisi Development. They built my house and everything went very smoothly indeed. You can visit their site at http://www.grecianland.gr
                    Good luck.

                        Hi Dave

                        I went through the same process last year looking for a property in Western Crete and experienced several estate agents in that area. The one we used in the end was Crete Perfect Home (http://www.crete-perfect-home.com) based in Kolymbari Marina and run by an English guy called Stuart Simon. His website is excellent and the service you will get is honest and comprehensive. No hard sell or half truths and he knows the area extremely well.

                        Good luck

                        Dave

                                    Hi

                                    We bought our land and property from Kritiki Ethos in Georgioupoli. It is owned by a Greek couple and an Amercian and his wife. They are very honest and reliable, and offer excellent service, before during and after the sale. They are wonderful people, very genuine and sincere.

                                        I’m not sure "looking forward" is the right phrase, Baccybabs. Perhaps "awaiting with trepidation" might be a better description?

                                        If you put together all the posts, Dave, I think you have got a pretty good selection of some of the most reputable agents in the area. Perhaps more significantly, it doesn’t include any of the names that pop up on a regular basis when “problems” are being aired.

                                                    Just to add another company for you to enquire about property in western crete… we went to Crete last june and Hellenic Homes are the company we chose….they are completing our house 1st April and we are going out 21st april..to Plaka. We have nothing but praise for the outstanding quality of work we have seen, every stage is agreed upon with both parties signing (so bills cannot mount up, and no little extras suddenly "appear")and we have managed to design a very indivdual build. We have had pictures sent via. email to us regually and any query we have, however small, is answered staight away, by email or a telephone call, if they feel thats appropriate. We really thought that there would be a few problems and "stresses" as we have only been out once, last october, since they started building…but not one single problem…their professionalism, friendliness and sheer fantasticness of their houses are second to none. Ask to speak to Panos or Yannis…..as for us….roll on the 21st april!!
