Alison guided us through the whole process with immense care, skill and understanding. Despite an almost insurmountable number of challenges (including Brexit and COVID-19!) she remained calm throughout and always remained focused on the task in hand.
Alison worked tirelessly on our behalf to make our dreams become a reality and we have no doubt that our purchase wouldn’t have succeeded without her. We can’t recommend Alison highly enough, an absolute pleasure to work with! Thank you Alison. Ali & Mike
We were introduced to Alison through an acquaintance in the real estate business and what an excellent recommendation she proved to be.
There were some unexpectedly challenging times throughout the purchase process and Alison’s professional, thorough and patient approach coupled with her deep knowledge of the way things work in Spain guided us through.
She regularly went the extra mile for us, even to the extent that she gave up a few hours of her time several months after completion to facilitate our meeting with the lenders.
Many thanks again Alison!
Martin and Dallas
Thank you so much for what you have managed to do for us, the deal you managed to broker with the bank is excellent and doubt it could have been bettered.
You can trust that I will recommend you services to any friends that are seeking a Spanish mortgage in the future.
Thank You once again

We sold our apartment to buy a townhouse and required a small ‘good value’ mortgage. Not knowing the Spanish market, we used a recommended ‘broker’ who could look at all providers and get the best deal. Alison decotta at Mortgage Matters Spain was honest, helpful and so efficient. We felt in safe hands and got a great deal. Thanks for making this an easy process for us! Highly recommended.

Six months ago, my wife and I decided to look at purchasing a property in Spain. I had travelled out to the Benijofar area a couple of times to look at property but didn’t really know where to start. I was apprehensive and unsure of how to progress, when a friend recommended ‘Mortgage Matters’.
From the very first time we spoke, I was reassured by your expertise, local knowledge and professionalism and you immediately put us at ease. You gave us both the confidence to pursue our dream of owning a property in Spain and you have been there for us at each stage of the negotiations and process.
Although there were times when the negotiations did not go to plan and not without their difficulties, and although these difficulties with third parties were beyond your control, you maintained communication with all concerned, and due to your determination and your ability to pull all parties together we were able to successfully complete on the deal. Your role in us purchasing our dream home in Spain has been invaluable.
On behalf of my family, I thank you for your diligence and courtesy. I would not hesitate to recommend Mortgage Matters to anyone seeking to purchase property in Spain.
‘Purchasing a property abroad is always a little more complicated than buying locally. But having someone like Alison looking after you in the Spanish market made it all very easy for us. She is very aware of the nightmare paper trail that banks require these days and genuinely tries to minimize the workload for her clients. Alison was there for us right up to the day we signed and received the keys to our apartment. She displayed in-depth knowledge of how the Spanish market works, sourced us a very good mortgage deal and had an answer for every question we threw at her!. Thoroughly recommend employing her for any financial query you may have on the Costa del Sol’
Alison is an absolute joy to work with. She is the ultimate professional, very knowledgeable with access to great mortgages. She has gone to great lengths to support and assist me as a first-time purchaser who does not speak Spanish. She personally introduced me to the bank manager handling my mortgage and been available to answer the smallest of questions immediately. She has gone well beyond her remit as a mortgage broker in helping me to understand the process involved with purchasing a property in Spain, which can be daunting without the right help. She has assisted me as a translator when needed with my lawyers and always been available to help me with the smallest of questions. I cannot recommend Alison highly enough as the “go to” person for anyone needing financial advice or a mortgage. She is articulate, personable, extremely capable, knowledgeable and importantly someone you can trust. I would never consider using anyone else.
All we had to do was find our dream home, Alison handled everything else. She goes the extra mile, explains how everything works, always quick to answer any questions we had. We’ll never forget the day you called and said ‘You got the loan.’ Thank you, Alison, you made it so easy!
Alison gave sound professional advice when purchasing our flat in Malaga City. We had a very short timescale to get all our finances and mortgage in order to secure our deal. I am in no doubt Alisons knowledge and efficient service helped us secure our dream home! Would highly recommend to others.
Avec un peu de recul, il est évident que sans le professionnalisme, le relationnel et la pugnacité d’Alison nous n’aurions jamais réussi à financer notre villa de Marbella ….et aurions perdu gros !
En effet, nous avions commis l’erreur de signer le contrat de vente au nom de notre SCI française, forme juridique inexistante en Espagne, ce qui a particulièrement compliqué le dossier, d’autant que le promoteur a tout fait pour ne pas nous arranger, trop désireux de pouvoir récupérer notre acompte et de revendre la villa plus cher dans la foulée puisque les prix avaient grimpés en flèche durant la construction !!!
A cet égard nous ne remercierons jamais assez Alison pour qui notre reconnaissance va désormais de pair avec notre amitié car en plus elle est une femme charmante !
