BlueSky Homes is an independent estate agent. We are based in the beautiful Spanish town of Alhaurin el Grande, less than half an hour from Malaga and the coast. We operate in a different way to many of the local agents, as we only advertise properties where we have direct contact with the sellers, and we do not participate in a sharing system. This means that we are able to tell you all about any of the properties which we have for sale, and can usually answer even the most unusual questions, as we have been to every property on our website! We pride ourselves on the personal attention that we provide to our clients, and we look forward to being able to assist you in finding your home in Andalucia.
