I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Ahmet and Sebnem for all the professional help and assistance in the purchase of two properties and the sale of one in the last four years,
We would recommend them to anyone wishing to purchase a property in Turkey , you can have complete trust in this company, they are the most honest Estate Agents that we have ever come to meet..
 
It all started October 2003, we were new to the area and looking at property in many towns along the coast,
We saw Lagoon Estates on ‘I want that house’ tv programme and decided to meet up with them and see what they had to offer, Ahmet took us around many properties and areas to give us a feel for the place, in the end we chose a property on Telmessos, the whole deal was done in a couple of hours.
It is very un-nerving the first time you purchase a property and it all happens very quickly, but Ahmet and Sebnem were with us all the way and made sure everything ran as smooth as posssible, it is all a matter of trust, we moved in the following spring, absolutely brilliant service.
 
In  2004 Ahmet attended a overseas property exhibition in London, as they are regarded as close friends now, we took ourselves up to London to meet them, Ahmet was proudly showing off his first development Lagoon Vista, 12 apartments including 4 Penthouses in Calis, and yes he sold us one of the penthouses there and then.
We agreed the purchase at the exhibition, this was off-plan and work had just started on the basement, we were regularly sent pictures of the progress and kept up-dated with any news, it was due to be finished May 2005 and it was finished in April, We moved into the property in May, meanwhile Ahmet had sold our Telmessos property to another English couple, again excellent service throughout purchase and sale.
You can put your complete trust in these people, they will not let you down..

Dear Lagoon Estates

We arrived in Fethiye more by accident than anything else our intention was to come to Turkey to buy a house or flat we had given ourselves just one week.Driving through the town we both knew that this was the place that we would be happy in.So like so many others we started early visiting agents off we would go and the mind would boggle with the number available, it took us some time to realise that we wanted to settle in Karagozler 1 or 2 each agent that we visited was showing us the same house or the same flat, everyone was very kind and helpful but we could not find the one we wanted.With two days to go I had had enough and was prepared to give up, but still we looked in all those windows that seemed to go on forever, in the end all photos seemed to be the same, finally we stopped outside Lagoon Estates, again the photos were a blur to me, my wife ( bless her ) insisted that we go in at which point I became even more miserable saying Oh, yes and then what can they offer, just the same as all the others,what I did not want was to look at all the same houses or flats yet again. Trailing behind my wife I heard her ask the same questions again ' do you have' so that is when we met dear Shebby, I think she could see that there was a nice lady dragging along a lose husband, then into the picture comes the charming Ahmet. He took us to places that I did not want to visit, then he explained that we needed to visit these places to be really sure of where we want to be, if it really was to be Karagozler then be sure.
Then off we went to look once more around Karagozler and I was seeing places that had not been visited before, then we found what we wanted and ended up buying two, all was now a rush to signthe papers pay a deposit and go home.
Then my concerns began to creep in ' why was I trusting all this money to someone I did not know in the UK and France I had purchased many houses over the years and now I was asked to hand over all this money to an Agent in Turkey! poor Silvia who was then in the office was beginning to get fed up with my e.mails demanding answers to a list of questions, as time went on I did feel more relaxed about the way they operated bur still found it bizarre, what I thought if he runs away with all this money and so on and then the suprise came. I had instructed that monies be transfered out to pay for one of the flats, unbeknow to me the monies did not arrive due to an error, the money had to arrive on the Monday on Friday when I found out it had not arrived I phoned Ahmet to apologise, no matter said he we have covered the payment for you from our funds, need I say more.

To the Lagoon Team,
We would like to thank you all for your help in the purchase of our Dream
Apartment in Calis.

Its not very often these days that you meet people you can trust,especially
after just a few days,
but this is what happened to us.We walked into Lagoon Estates one day and
were made to feel really welcome by Shebby and Ahmet,they talked us through
the process of buying,then took us out to see some properties.

Within 2 days we had put a deposit down on our apartment and left feeling
very comfortable with the whole situation.When we returned home we were
constantly informed of any developements.
we were allways asking questions,"Where can we buy this?""How much is this?"
and within the hour we would get a reply!! (this really doesnt happen in
England!!),

On our next visit,Shebby took us out Shopping for Furniture and Electrical
goods,all this was "part of the service".
We kept on thinking "wheres the catch??",but there really wasnt one.I think
its in the English make up to be sceptical.Shebby and Ahmet are the most
trustworthy people we have ever met and would have no doubts in dealing with
them again "weather they would deal with us is another question!!!!!! haha".

We feel very lucky to have met Shebbey and Ahmet and now count them amongst
our Friends.

If anybody would like to contact us we would be more than happy to talk to
you.

 "We found the whole Lagoon approach to be personable, friendly and very straightforward.  We went on to purchase through them and did so with great confidence.  Since becoming owners we have remained in constant touch with Lagoon and they have certainly helped to make our whole experience of being apartment owners in Calis and extremely pleasurable one.  Nothing is too much trouble.  We now feel part of the Lagoon family and regard them as much as friends as we do agents.  We can throughly recommend them.

We were introduced to Turkey by clients of Lagoon and were keen to consider the opportunity to purchase.  With the usual trepidation and caution we looked at various properties and agents and after many viewings were taken by a property we viewed with Ahmet and his team. They seemed to learn our needs from each viewing and were then better able to show us properties that met our exacting specification.

Once the decision was taken the process could not have been smoother.  The Lagoon team swung into action and arranged assistance and support to ensure the deal was finalised with the minimum of delay and fuss smoothing the daunting process - we could not have asked for more!  The process was so smooth we were able to arrange furniture and all the required equipment to allow us to return and live in the Villa only a few weeks later.

We could not fault the services provided and this is ongoing with maintenance and other local support delivered to their exacting standard.  We know we have a trusted friend in Lagoon and have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective purchaser.

For anyone who is looking to buy a property in the Fethiye area look no further than Lagoon Estates. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

 

Ahmet and his team (Sebnem & Sylvia) arranged everything as regards the purchase of our new build. They liased with the builder, took regular photographs to show us the progress being made and arranged for the transfer of all the monies - we trusted them implicitly and they did not let us down. It was very comforting for us to know that there were English speaking people that we could contact at anytime with any queries and concerns.

 

Since our purchase Lagoon have carried on looking after us with a patience and understanding that surpasses any service that we might expect in England.

 

It is lovely to know that should we have any problems they are always ready to help and when we are in Fethiye there is always a coffee and a warm welcome available.

 

To sum up - we met as strangers and left as friends.

Recommendation

We have finally received the deed to our little paradise in Fethiye!

 

With that said we would like say thank you to the Lagoon Estates for a very – very professional and an exceptionally caring aid throughout the entire purchasing process.

 

As a Danish buyer one must have quite a few documents in order, among these especially a residence permit to be used in the approval procedure. Here have the Lagoon Estates provided an immense and enduring contribution in regards to both the public authorities as the amount of confidence they have shown us which conclusively made us feel in safe hands.

 

We will

      Ø      Especially thank Ahmet Akay for his large professional knowledge and determination in regards to collecting all necessary information needed by our Danish attorney as well as several approvals issued by the Turkish authorities.

Ø      Especially thank Sebnem Berkin for her skilled consistent responses to our inquiries, professional pieces of information and the always kind and pleasant personality of Sebnem.

Ø      Also thank Taner Aydogan for a vast help and guidance throughout the renovation of the house and shopping intended for the house.

Ø      Furthermore like to thank the remaining members of the Lagoon Team for their aid.

 

We are
     
Ø      Very pleased and feel secure after the purchase with having agreed upon a service arrangement with the Lagoon Estates.

 One year ago we discovered an advertisement on the Internet and contacted Bolig Eksperten (Tyrkiet Eksperten) who lead us to their associate in Fethiye, Lagoon Estates. This should turn out to be just the right thing to do.

 
We therefore thank

      Ø      Bolig Eksperten (Mahir Mutlu) for references as well as good advice and counselling.
With the deed in hand and a professional and helpful Lagoon Team as friends we safely recommend purchasing property in the Fethiye area.

Reference/Anbefaling

 

 

Vi har nu fået skøde på vores lille paradis af bolig i Fethiye.

 

Med det vil vi gerne sige tusind tak til Lagoon Estates for en meget - meget professionel og yderst hjælpsom bistand i hele købsforløbet.

 

 

Som dansk køber skal man som bekendt have en del papirer på plads, herunder specielt opholdstilladelse til brug for den centrale godkendelse. Her har Lagoon Estates ydet en meget stor og vedholdende indsats over såvel de offentlige myndigheder som den tillid de har udvist over for os og som har gjort os meget trygge.

 

Vi vil

·        specielt takke Ahmed Akai for hans meget store professionelle viden og handlekraft, når det dels gjaldt om at få samtlige oplysninger  skaffet til vores danske advokat samt til at få tilladelser igennem de tyrkiske myndigheder

·        især takke Sebnem  Berkin  for hendes kyndige vedvarende besvarelser på vores forespørgsler, professionelle oplysninger samt Sebnem’s altid venlige og imødekommende væremåde.

·        også takke Tanner Aydogan mange gange for enorm hjælp og rådgivning vedrørende husets renovering og indkøb

·        desuden sige tak for hjælp til de øvrige medlemmer af  Lagoon Teamet

 

Vi er

  • meget glade og trygge over at have indgået serviceaftale med Lagoon Estates efter købet.

 

For et år siden fandt vi en annonce på nettet og kontaktede Bolig Eksperten (Tyrkiet Eksperten), som henviste til Deres samarbejdspartner i Fethiye, nemlig Lagoon Estates. Dette skulle vise sig, at være det helt korrekte.

 

Vi takker

  • derfor Boligeksperten (Mahir Mutlu) for såvel henvisning samt efterfølgende gode råd og vejledning

 

Med skødet i hånden og et så professionelt og hjælpsomt Lagoon Team som venner kan vi trygt anbefale køb af ejendom i Fethiye og omegn.

 Valerie & Kevin Rattray
 

Valerie and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all at ‘Lagoon Estatesfor assisting in making our dream home in Turkey come true. Initially like a lot of British families we were concerned regarding all the legal aspects, hidden financial implications and errors that may be lost in translation. However we were amazed how simple the purchasing process was and how dedicated and professional you and your staff were during the whole villa purchasing period.  The financial transfers were simple, straight forward and efficient with regular communication from Ahmet informing us on the arrival of funds.

 

The efficiency portrayed in obtaining our deeds was commendable as we have a lot of expat friends in Ovacik who are still waiting for their property deeds to be formalised and signed.  We certainly couldn’t have furnished the villa so quickly and with wonderful Turkish furniture if it wasn’t for your dedicated support in showing us the best places, sometimes with discount and always with a smile.

 

Finally we would like to say thanks for assisting all our family and friends who stay in villa Lavanta in our absence, being always on hand to assist and providing an expert property management scheme, providing us with a gleaming swimming pool, well kept gardens and a maid service second to none.

 

We look forward to seeing you all again later in the year.

 

Yours truly,

 

Valerie, Georga, Greg and Kevin Rattray

If anyone is buying a property in Turkey please be assured that the procedure is extremely easy.

You will appoint Ahmet Akay of Lagoon Estates to be your Power of Attorney and basically leave everything to him. He is a super bloke and you can trust him implicitly. He will keep you fully informed throughout. If you are buying a property under construction he will send you regularupdates and photographs.

We bought a property in Hisaronu in 2003 and Ahmet was a star. If we had any queries he was always there to answer our questions both by e-mail and telephone. We made the appointment with Ahmet before we went to Turkey and he did not waste our time by showing us properties that were of no interest to us or were out of our price range as some British estate agents would do.

If you would like to speak to us before making a final decision we would be more than happy to hear from you. Our e-mail address is
enigma1@blueyonder.co.uk

Using Lagoon Estates and Ahmet is the wisest choice you can make we promise you.

Margaret and Dave

Now we have our TAPU and everything is sorted out, we feel that we have to express our appreciation for all that you have done for us in the purchase of our new home. Also, for the help you have given us with any problems we have had, both in connection with our purchase and in matters not directly connected to it. i.e. purchase of white goods, curtains, air conditioning and all the other things you did in our two week absence in the UK.

From the day in February when we told Sebnem that we had to find a new home in Turkey as we had sold our house in the UK and would be homeless in three weeks because our buyer wanted immediate completion. To the present time. The speed at which you found us the perfect home (three hours and a contract to buy was signed) was phenominal.

The help you have subsequently given us in every aspect of settling in, has been beyond our greatest expectations. Therefore, we can, based on our experience, unreservedly recommend all at Lagoon Estates for their professional & caring service, to anyone interested in property purchase in Turkey.

So, Ahmet, Sebnem, Sylvia and not forgetting Çigdem (for her unfailing supply of Çay) and all the staff at Lagoon. We wish you every success in the future and once again, thank you all very much for your exceptional service.

You too will be thrilled with the whole experience working with these fantastic people at Lagoon Estates.

 Merhaba Ahmet & the Lagoonies,
 
 Thankyou very much for making our Turkish property purchase a painless experience, the service you provided was first class from start to finish.
 
 From our purchase date in late Feb you said that our Tapu would take 8-10 weeks and sure enough when we came back out on the 3rd May you had it there waiting for us
 
 Having purchased several houses in England we all know what a worrying and traumatic time it can be but not in Turkey, we agreed the price, Ahmet then sorted all the paperwork in one morning, we paid a small deposit then Ahmet took us shopping to furnish our villa then on the afternoon Ahmet & Sheb took us on a sightseeing tour of Fethiye & a beer to celebrate our purchase.
 
 Having just returned home to England from 2 weeks in our own Villa we can't wait to come back to Fethiye to see you all again, and we have no problem with recommending Lagoon estates to family,freinds and total strangers
 
 love to you all Ahmet,Sheb & Slyvia xxx

My Dear Ahmet.
Thank you once again for the truly professional service you carried out to secure our dream house in Calis. We were overwhelmed by the speed and ease in which you seemed to get it all done ,
I think from first seeing the house to signing the last papers took only about three hours total work. Very well done!
Also thank you for all the help and haggling when buying the furniture and fittings. I think you must have saved us nearly two hundred pounds when we worked it all out. Also the tiles and light fittings that you chose are just beautiful and the stair rail is just what we wanted. I am glad I listened to you about the air-conditioning units. We did need three just as you advised {are you ever wrong?}.
Sorry we could not see you last week when we came over, but we were only there for three days and had to buy curtains and carpets. You let us down by not arranging those for us, but once again, you were right, it is a woman’s job! We probably would have chosen the wrong ones.
Once we get over again in June, we would like to take you up on your offer of having the garden done, plus some of the other bits & pieces like the B.B Q.
Once again, thank you so very very much for all your friendliness and professional help.
If you would like to include this letter in your Reference Web Page, please feel free to do so. I would gladly speak to anyone if they have any sort off problems regarding buying in turkey and tell them about the help you can give. My phone number is 01903 692977, or alternatively, e mail us on lancelizgilby@msn.com  .
Bye for now, see you soon
Lance & Liz

If you are reading this you are in the same position we were last year.
You are wondering wether you are doing the right thing!- Don’t Worry No Problem (as they say in Turkey).
We bought our property in Ovaçik with the help of Ahmet of Lagoon Estates in May last year and have never looked back. We guarentee by the time you have completed your purchase you will not only have a property consultant but also a very good friend.
The buying system is strange and a bit daunting - especially when you leave money with somebody you do not know and go back home – its not English!! But don’t worry.
Ahmet will help and explain to you all the procedures so you know what is happening every step of the way.
The only problem you will have is dragging yourself back to the Airport to go home!!
If you are still in doubt you can contact us on member@giles-security.fsnet.co.uk or 01708 553388.

We were spending an uneventful late winter evening until a programme called "I want that House" showed properties in Turkey, caught our attention, as were thinking of buying a property abroad not only as an investment but also as a retirement home.
 
 We sent away for the detail pack offered and looked around for flights to Dalaman on the internet. My husband through work commitments was unable to take time off so it was agreed that I went on my own to view.
 
 When I arrived in Fethiye I contacted Lagoon Estates and spoke to Ahmet Akay who arranged to meet me and showed me around with other clients the properties that were available.
 
 I decided after quite a number of days viewing all types of houses, Villas and apartments to go for one in Calis which was in the process of being built. numerous E mails, Texts and Phone calls home to keep my husband up to date, we both agreed to go ahead with the purchase.
 
 All the legalities were sorted out while I was there by Ahmet who explained everything to me clearly, such as translation of documents, and answered all my enquiries. I appointed Ahmet Akay of Lagoon Estates to be our Power of Attorney and basically left everything to him.
 
 I can recommend Ahmet and all at Lagoon Estates for the professional manner and courtesy shown to me especially as I was travelling alone in their country.
 
 If you would like to speak to us before making a final decision we would be more than happy to hear from you. Our e-mail address is Catsandus.suhanicats@ntlworld.com

Last year we came to Fetiye to purchased a property for our holiday home. We met Ahmet Akay through a mutual friend, who had lived around Fetiye for the past twelve years. We told Ahmet our requirements and budget and from then on he drove us around to various places he had on his books, never at any time did we feel under any pressure to buy or to make a quick decision. Throughout this time we found Ahmet to be honest, helpful and true to his word, the whole process, thanks to his professionalism was so much easier than we expected. We cannot recommend Ahmet highly enough and if anyone is having any doubts and would like to telephone us, we would be quite happy to speak to them.

We traveled to Turkey in August 2003 for one week with the sole intention of viewing and possibly purchasing a property. We contacted Ahmet Akay though his web site and arranged to contact him on our arrival. He came to meet us at our hotel and took us back to the local Lagoon estate office so he could show us all the properties available in our price range in the areas we had expressed and interest. He also made suggestions of other areas we may not have considered, we were then taken to each property in turn and had a full viewing, which took approx 4 hours. He then took us for a drink to chill out and cool down. I must say there was never any hard sell as in Turkey the estate agent primarily works for the buyer, as it is the buyer that pays his fee. Any queries we had on any properties he would call the owners for us and negotiated with them while we were there.

As there were a couple of properties we were keen on, and he collected us again the next day for a second viewing. After which we decided to buy one of them. Ahmet got the price reduced for us by £2,500, and requested certain things be changed to are stipulation. For example there was no window in the bathroom and at our request he insisted one be put in at no extra cost.

All the legalities were sorted out while we were there by Ahmet who explained everything to us clearly, such as translation of documents, army checks, bank accounts, arranging to be our power of attorney. We still had 3 clear days in our week to enjoy the rest of our time in Turkey.

Ahmet kept in touch on our return to England and kept us informed of all the updates, and confirmed when moneys had been received, which can be worrying when sending thousands abroad.

We now have the title deeds and are fully-fledged owners, and have been back to Turkey twice since the initial visit, and we have kept in touch with Ahmet on each and every visit.

We have no hesitation in recommending him or Lagoon Estates to any prospective buyers

We bought our villa from Ahmet at Lagoon Estates and can honestly say it is
the best thing we have ever done.The Turkish people have been so welcomeing, friendly and helpful.It is very cheap to live and also you feel verysafe.

We can't think of one thing that we don't like.We would have no hesitation in recomending Ahmet to anyone who is thinking of buying a property,he did everything for us and nothing was a problem,we can aslo say his truth and honesty is without question.Not only did we buy a house but we made a most trusted and valuable friend in Ahmet.

If anyone is thinking about buying a property and would like to ask us any
questions about our experience or any concerns they might have they can
email us at lordandladyknight@hotmail.com

10 year ago we found the Fethiye area of Turkey and fell in love with everything, especially the Turkish people who make the place very special to us.

Do not take any notice of the people who give you their opinion of Turkey, but have never been. Check it out for yourselves, then decide, we did and never regretted it.

We visited the area for 2 years before finding the ideal property for our requirements which we purchased 8 year ago. Then there was not the information available as you have today, but we did have Ahmet Akay whom we got to know and trust. We now consider him as part of our family.

Buying in Turkey at the time was quite new and Ahmet's help, support and knowledge was invaluable. When we were in the UK we needed someone that we trusted 100% and Ahmet has never failed us.

We use our house as a family holiday home, we do not live there. We use it solely for holiday enjoyment.

With the help of Ahmet, in April 2003 we also purchased an apartment in Fethiye which was completed without any hitch within a few weeks.

SUGGESTION:
1. Before buying anything, check out the area and look at several properties, decide what you want not what someone wants to sell you.

2. Let Ahmet know the type of property you are looking for.

3. Trust Ahmet he will find you what you want in a location to suit you.

4. Spend the next years enjoying yourself in Turkey

5. If this helps you and you become a Turkish neighbour, it will cost you a beer when we meet in Fethiye.

After our holiday in 2003 we made a decision to purchase a property in Fethiye on our next visit in 2004 . For the intervening time we searched the web for properties and Turkish legal and house buying procedures. We returned in May having arranged to view various properties with different estate agents. We, by pure chance at the last minute arranged to meet Lagoon Estates on our first day of the trip, as there had been a mix up on our part, weren’t we the ‘ lucky ones’.
Sebnem came to meet us at our hotel armed with a folder full off attractive properties to buy. We knew immediately which property was for us and after only a few minutes of viewing confirmed our intention to purchase. We returned to their office in Fethiye to be greeted by Ahmet, and were overcome by his bubbly and enthusiastic welcome, we also met Sylvia for the first time having only ‘talked’ via the internet. They all treated us with unbelievable friendliness and even after only a short time we had complete trust in their professionalism and dedication to our needs. We then went through the initial purchasing procedure, which is made so simple and straight forward with Ahmet. We left Lagoon having, given our deposit, photograph’s and power of attorney to return to the UK. We entered Lagoon as clients and left as friends, part of the ‘Lagoonies’ clan.
Completion of our property was due late October. Whilst we were waiting we were given regular bulletins and photograph’s on the progress of the build. At this stage we forwarded the remainder of the monies due.
We returned in Oct 2004 on completion taking possession of our treasured apartment. Lagoon do not stop helping just because you have the ‘keys’. We were taken to various shops for the white goods and beds, and arranged house insurance. Their door is always open if you require assistance or just somewhere to go for a good natter.
We can’t praise LAGOON ESTATES enough for what they have done for us, in realising our dream. We highly recommend prospective buyers to give them a call. Our email is pghoskin@supanet.co.uk if anyone needs reassuring.

Buying a house in England is probably one of the most stressful times in your life. Where as in Fethiye it’s like buying yourself a present, with the help of Lagoon Estates. All the work is done for you. All you have to do is choose.
Ahmet Akay will help and guide you all the way; he sees to all the paper work and reassures you. He’s able to answer all your queries and questions making the whole experience an absolute delight, I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Yours sincerely

 My wife and I on our third visit to Turkey had decided this was where we wanted our second home, somewhere we, and our family could enjoy the culture, the people and the sunshine.Lagoon Estates were our choice of agents, and what an inspired choice it was, Ahmet, Sebi, Sylvia and all at Lagoon could not have been more helpful.Everything from viewing potential properties, the buying process, right through to furnishing our wonderful home was made so easy and stress free, with no pressure at any time. We have been very satisfied with the service we've had from Lagoon and everybody there have become good friends. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lagoon Estates to anyone thinking of doing just what we've done.

I can highly recommend Ahmet and Lagoon Estates.As with most people buying abroad i was apprehensive about the buying process and the risks involved.Ahmet was very open regarding past and present clients and their comments which have all been favourable.I felt confident enough to give Ahmet power of attorney which enabled him to access my Turkish bank account.I was kept informed throughout the 8-10 weeks that it took for the paperwork to be completed.I am very happy with my apartment and would welcome any queries or comments about my experience.
