What our clients say
If you want to buy a property in the Apokoronas, Crete, look no further!
Dreamcatchers offer an excellent property-finding service. But not only this, they also offer advice on a multitude of matters related to buying property on Crete and settling in. We went on four trips to Crete over the course of 12 months and looked at about 20 properties with Dreamcatchers. Rachel was extremely attentive and skilled at understanding what we wanted. We eventually settled upon two properties - one outside Plaka and one in the centre of Gavalohori. We really liked them both, but settled on the property with wonderful sea and mountain views in Plaka, largely because you can walk to the beach in Almyrida and we thought our grown up kids would prefer having lively Almyrida nearby.
Dreamcatchers also offered advice on finding a lawyer and a good currency company in the UK. In all our dealings, I trusted Dreamcatchers completely. They are very knowledgeable with no bluster; they offer common sense solutions and provide a great service. This element of know-how and years of experience was essential and saved us so much in term of time and money.
After the purchase, Dreamcatchers also offered advice on property insurance, local accountancy firms, and car purchase and insurance. We are very grateful to them, and they were also extremely prompt in all communications.
In short, we would thoroughly recommend Dreamcatchers if you are looking to buy property in the Apokoronas area.

Our search for our dream home in Crete began on a long weekend in November 2014
We came over to stay with our friends who have lived here for many years and list of properties was compiled by searching through every web page of agents in the area
We didn't really have a wish list as such and were open to anything really that could be adapted to our dream home
We must have seen 30 properties that weekend all had a but. It wasn't until Rachel said "I think I have the very house for you" that we found the one!!
As,we drove up my heart sank Never will we be able to afford this house. I hadn't even had chance to look inside before my husband announced This is the one what is it going to take to get it. I was acutely aware that to move out here and actually give up work was going to take a lot of money and we got the house at top end of our budget but it has everything that could have been on a wish list and more besides.
I won't say that the buying process was not sometimes fraught but Dreamcatchers professionalism got us through. They have such a Can do attitude that we Brits are sometimes lacking.
They are more than Selling Agents ...... they go the extra mile for you and more besides and we know that without Rachael taking us to see our home we wouldn't be in it today.
We regard them as friends and if we ever were in the position that we had to sell then it would definitely be Dreamcatchers that we would go to

Thank you Rachel for all the advice and help you so generously gave me, not only when I first came out here searching for a property, but also during all the negotiations and beyond. You made the whole purchasing process effortless and pleasurable and arranged every last detail on my behalf.
Three years on, I know that I can always pop in and rely on you if ever I want advice on any aspect of living here in Crete - whether it's providing paperwork and instructions on how to buy a car or fixing appointments and arranging house insurance. Nothing is too much trouble - you really do go way above and beyond what is expected, and I greatly value and appreciate you for it.

Twelve years ago we began our search for an old village house in the Apokoronas. We had chosen this beautiful area after years of visiting more than 30 Greek Islands.
After 2 years we ended up buying a new apartment as we couldn’t find the house that seemed to be in our minds. We enjoyed the wonderful views and convenience but we continued our search for that, elusive, old village house.
Dreamcatchers have been tireless and patient, supporting us in this quest with understanding and tenacity in the face of, the very picky and particular people we are! Year on year they have shown us numerous houses, being magnanimous with their time and energy.
They found a buyer for our apartment and efficiently negotiated the price we wanted and the sale was completed within 6 weeks.
Finally our search was rewarded when they found us the house we now own, our beautifully renovated village house in the foothills of the White Mountains.
They skillfully negotiated with the vendors with professionalism and integrity and managed to secure the purchase within our budget.
So, here we are, in our aging years, taking up residence in our, wonderful new home, thanks to them
Dreamcatchers really did catch a dream for us and we are eternally grateful and indebted to them for their service and friendship. We have no hesitation in recommending them most highly and without reservation.
