Orka Homes Testimonial

Emma & I have always been interested in purchasing a property abroad, both as a holiday home for family use, but also as a form of income to boost our pensions.

We visited the “A Place in the Sun” exhibition which was being held in Earls Court in April 2012 to give ourselves an idea of what was available. Wandering around and visiting the many stands displaying properties from Brazil to Bulgaria, Cape Verde to Thailand helped us draft a criteria that we felt to be essential in a holiday home such as:

Distance from the UK
Ease of travel
Value for money
Rental potential
Cost of flights

By doing this we focused our attention on properties in Turkey and came across the Orka Homes stand. We were introduced to Valerie who listened to what we were looking for and then gave us an insight into what Orka Homes could offer us.  She also introduced us to Alan who also answered many of our questions.

Although we had not planned at this stage to book any viewing trips and had declined many offers from other companies we were so impressed with their passion for Orka Homes that we booked a viewing trip for May 2012.

We visited Turkey on the viewing trip to look at everything that was on offer and not just the Orka builds and we had not at that stage any intention of making a commitment to purchase.  We made it clear from the start what we were looking for and what the financial boundaries were. At no time during the trip did we feel that we were under any pressure to buy. We were given plenty of free time to relax, enjoy the weather, explore the area ourselves and to not only get a feel for the location but to have a look at properties being offered by others.

From the moment we arrived in Turkey we found Alan and the team to be professional, thoughtful and very engaging. Through his professional manner and questions he helped us find exactly what we were looking for in a property. By showing us different types of villas and locations, listening to the aspects of what we liked or disliked he then provided us with the tools we required to make what was for us and will be for most people an enormous decision.

Towards the conclusion of our trip we were shown a plot that fulfilled our criteria and was too good an opportunity to return to the UK without securing. So despite our original thoughts of waiting until the spring of 2013 before purchasing a property abroad we decided to go ahead.

The final design was a combination of two villa styles. In listening to our likes and dislikes during our stay Alan and the Orka team provided us with all the features we found most pleasing from their other properties.  In addition we were also able to negotiated changes to the plans and agreed staged payments. During these negotiations nothing was too much trouble. Everyone was very helpful.

All through our villa purchase Alan has been very hepful and always kept in touch sending us updates & photos of the building phases. Last July (2013) our villa was completed and we have had excellent feedback from guests. We have a modern 4 bed villa that we are very proud of, but we are also proud to be part of the Orka Family who from the outset had promised to deliver the build and have been true to their word.

We have had a really amazing experience with Orka Homes and I can’t recommend them highly enough. From top to bottom, management to cleaners they have been fantastic.

I would suggest that if you visit the “Place in the Sun” exhibition don’t on any account pass by the Orka Homes display without giving them a really good look …..They’ll probably have something that you’re looking for, but if not they will listen to your requirements, find you your ideal plot, design and then build a villa for you.

Orka Homes Testimonial

The family fell in love with Turkey and for a couple of year’s we just talked and dreamed about owning our own villa there. I then saw an advert from Orka offering a viewing trip over to view their properties and I did a little homework and Orka stood out for customer satisfaction and quality.

So slightly nervous I contacted Martin from Orka and booked a viewing trip to come over and have a look. When I arrived in Turkey they picked me up from the airport, and brought me through to Ovacik to stay at an Orka property. In the morning I was met by Alan for a coffee and was shown around various villa’s that I had seen on their website. After lunch we bumped into some property owner’s that couldn’t speak highly enough of Orka. (This carried on through out my visit)

Once I found the property I wanted to invest in, they couldn’t have made it any easier for me to buy. Once again they made sure we were very happy, and when I put my deposit down they put in the contract, that I had the option of pulling out if anything went wrong with my mortgage agreement. (which I had read people have done)

I  must also mention Martin from the UK office who also keeps in touch, making sure all is going well.

I am now a proud owner of a villa with Orka, and I feel part of the Orka family, everyone is so helpful, that I would happily recommend Orka to friend’s and family

Orka Homes Testimonial

A bit apprehensive at first when we went on a viewing trip but Orka soon put us at ease and we fully enjoyed the experience ending with us purchasing a new villa. They helped us through the whole process and have continued with lots of help when we were picking furniture etc. I would recommend anyone thinking about buying a property in Turkey to have a chat with Orka. They are very helpful and professional.
