I made a recent property purchase on Fuerteventura which required swift action in order to secure a competitively priced property from a vendor who was keen to sell.
The property was advertised through Jacomo´s real estate agency Forum Inmobiliaria. I must congratulate Jacomo on his consumate professionalism in building up trusting relationships in such a short time span. He was able to deal with any worries or concerns I had without delay; and provide comprehensive accurate information to enable me to make an informed decision at short notice.He ensured that I was supported effectively both through the legal process and after sales completion. I would not hesitate to recommend Jacomo´s services, he will certainly be the first person I turn to when dealing again with property purchase or sale in Fueteventura.

We only can qualify the excelent co-operation with the company Forum Inmobiliaria Organos GC, S.L represented by Jacomo Waldherr and our bank. His Real Estate Agency has been the first where Solbank Fuerteventura has signed an co-operation contract. This is now 7 years ago and he is one of the few agents who still reconfirm our co-operation. His professionell, serious working & personal care of his clients are some of the details, where we believe that this express his identety. We just like to say: Keep on like this.

I found Forum Inmobiliaria very knowledgeable regarding the whole buying process on Fuerteventura. The fact that they could deal with us in English and introduce us to English speaking professionals such as lawyers and bankers was a real bonus and made the whole purchase very straight forward.The owner of the Company has given us invaluable ongoing support after the purchase and has helped us with the preparation of our apartment ready for letting. It is great to have someone on the island that we can really trust; particularly as we are so far away.
The fact that Forum Inmobiliaria can also help with tax registrations and other legal matters is one of the reasons that I would highly recommend them. Forum Inmobiliaria have a wide selection of properties around the island and found us the perfect property for our needs and budget. The ongoing support has been terrific.

"Buying a house in your own country is stressful enough but when faced with an unfamiliar legal system, customs and practices which you don´t understand and a language that is not your own, you need someone you can trust to guide you through. We are truly grateful to Jacomo, he was honest and honourable and secured for us the home that we now can´t wait to retire to. Normally, after making the sale, you´d expect estate agents to walk away with their commission but that didn´t happen. We still needed help and local expertise, even the simplest of things can be daunting when you don´t speak the language.
Jacomo has helped us get our house looking like the dream home that we always wanted being patient and understanding even when we were dithering about colours and curtains and sofas. We´ve been looked after as well as our house a genuine example of customer care. We were so lucky to have met Jacomo,and it is not putting it too strongly that what started as a business transaction has developed into a continuing friendship."

"In early 2001 we took a family holiday on Fuerteventura. We had been looking for somewhere to buy a holiday home for a year or two. We decided that this was the place, so I e-mailed 6 or 7 estate agents on the island.
Only one took the trouble to reply -" Forum Inmobiliaria" I flew back to Fuerteventura and met Sr. Waldherr who showed me some different properties so that I could choose the type that we wanted.
He arranged the purchase of our property, prepared all of the paperwork, sorted the Notarios appointment and settlement of local taxes and payments relating to the purchase.
Since we have owned the property Forum Inmobiliaria have been invaluable. They deal with the local Town Hall (Ayuntamiento) for taxes etc. If any work is needed on the property they get top quality local tradesmen to do the work. Also they are a big help in getting furniture and other things for the property. (being local and established for over 20 years they have contacts in all the best places). To be honest Sr. Waldherr is more of a friend to our family than just a business acquaintance. "If we ever buy another property on Fuerteventura we will definitely use Forum Inmobiliaria as our agents!"

"I have had some clients that have purchased a property through Jacomo and as a conveyancing solicitor I have to say that I have been very impressed by the efficiency and profesionality of Jacomo. My clients may think the same as they have later used the after sale services that Jacomo and Forum Inmobiliaria Fuerteventura offer".

"I purchased a property off Mr. Waldherr, Fuerteventura Real Estate, I found him to be very nice to deal with, helpful with any queries that I had, and was always willing to go that extra mile to put me at ease during the buying process.
With regard to letting, he promised cleints when the sale was completed,. and he fulfilled his promise with regard to this long term letting agreement. Any problems that arose such as maintainence or queries were dealt with in a speedy fashion and with a satisfactory outcome."

"We purchased a property in Fuerteventura in October 2003 from Mr Jacomo Waldherr of the above company. We viewed many properties during the summer of 2003 from various agents but we were most impressed with the treatment we received from Mr Waldherr. From the first signing of the property to completion Mr Waldherr took care of everything for us with the utmost attention to detail and made the whole process very easy for us. Since then he has taken care of our property and all the necessary paperwork including looking after the tenant, taking care of our tax returns, and maintaining our property. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Waldherr and his company to anyone intersted in buying a property in Fuerteventura and have already done so."

I have no hesitation in recommending Forum Inmobiliaria Fuerteventura and particularly CEO Jacomo Waldherr for his very practical no-nonsense approach to getting things done quickly and efficiently.
I moved to the island from Edinburgh, Scotland in early 2002 and Mr Waldherr assisted me enormously with my first purchase and with the necessary paperwork.This year I sold a property and the service I received was faultless. His service extended well beyond the completion date and he ensured that all necessary taxes were paid on time. Personally, I am so impressed that I carry two or three of his business cards at all times and frequently give them to interested investors.
