I would recommend Rasquera Properties as a reliable company to sell your house or farm in Tarragona. It was an easy and transparent process. Five stars to Tracy.

Gerardo Elias Brando. Mora D’Ebre. April 2022

I had been searching for our dream-property for one and a half years when I met Tracy. From the first contact, I knew she would never sell me anything just for the sake of selling and earning money. I absolutely felt I could trust her and knew that she also wanted the best for us.
She is super-reliable, clear in communication, she is very experienced, helpful and she led us through all the sometimes a little complicated steps when buying a property in Spain (especially when you don´t speak Spanish yet).
Besides all the good advices, she managed to put some humour into the process when things felt a little stressful for us (laughter can help a lot!)
So … Tracy is just THE best! I totally recommend her!
5 out 5 stars!!!

Tracy is much more than a ‘property sales agent’. When we fell in love with a property in need of restoration, having never owned property outside the UK, we thought that buying it was sure to be too complicated for us. With her extensive experience, patience and enthusiasm, Tracy made it possible. At every stage she ‘went the extra mile’, nothing was too much trouble and we are now owners of our dream property.

Great opportunities and excellent counsel on buying a property in the Rasquera region!

I was looking for a suitable property for me and my family in early 2021 and Rasquera Properties was one of several realtor agencies I used for searching and visiting potential properties. In the end I found the one I bought on this website with the competent help of Tracy.

Tracy replied almost immediately to our first correspondence (which is not a given, as we found) and interest in the properties on her website, having an open mind for our criterias and understanding for what we were looking for. She was flexible and patient in organising the viewings, also with regard to changes in our schedule.

During the visits of the property she gave us the necessary space to explore the properties and get a feeling and an impression of our own while still pointing out the interesting or favourable facts about the house or the land. We never had the feeling we were pressured or being talked into something. Also when we showed severe interest we never had
the feeling that there were information being left out which eventually would have been a reason to not buy a property. If there were known disadvantages to take into account, they were communicated in time so no harm was done and no time was lost.

After finding the right property, Tracy also helped us through the process and very patiently communicated between all the involved parties (like vendors, lawyers, notaries). She also offers acting with an POA on your behalf and she accompanied me to the notary.

I can fully recommend Tracy’s services and would urge everyone not to hesitate to contact her if they find something on this website they might find suitable or interesting for their own specific needs. Tracy is a competent and professional realtor, she is incredibly nice and patient in personal correspondence and absolutely trustworthy. Her
specific knowledge of the region and her willingness to support her clients in any way possible is a real asset for everyone.

I wish everyone much success in their quest to find the perfect casa and all the best to Tracy.
If you need any further personal recommendations, feel free to ask Tracy for my contact details.

Betreff: Großartige Möglichkeiten und exzellente Beratung für den Kauf eines Grundstücks in der Rasquera Region!
Anfang 2021 habe ich für mich und meine Familie ein passendes Grundstück mit Haus gesucht und rasqueraproperties war eine der Makleragenturen, mit welcher wir zusammen gearbeitet haben. Das Objekt für welches wir uns entschieden haben, habe ich mit der Hilfe von Tracy über diese Internetseite gefunden.

Tracy hat sich nach der ersten Kontaktaufnahme quasi direkt mit uns in Verbindung gesetzt (was, wie wir feststellen mussten, nicht selbstverständlich ist). Sie hatte ein gutes Verständnis für unsere Kriterien und wonach wir in einem Objekt suchen. Hinsichtlich der Besichtigungstermine war sie flexibel und geduldig, selbst wenn wir unsere Pläne spontan ändern mussten.

Während der Besichtigungen hat Tracy uns die Möglichkeit eingeräumt, das Objekt eingiebig anzugucken und ein Gefühl für Haus und Grundstück zu entwickeln. Trotzdem hat sie die Möglichkeit gefunden, uns interessante
oder besondere Aspekte des Objektes zu erklären. Wir hatten niemals das Gefühl, dass wir bedrängt würden oder dass uns “etwas aufgeschwatzt” wird. Sofern wir näheres Interesse an einem Objekt hatten, hatten wir nie das Gefühl, dass etwaige nachteilige Aspekte unterschlagen wurden, welche letztendlich ein Grund gegen einen Kauf gewesen wären. Sofern es bekannte nachteilige Aspekte gab, sind diese stets rechtzeitig kommuniziert worden, so dass keine Zeit verloren ging.

Nachdem wir das richtige Objekt gefunden hatten, hat uns Tracy ebenfalls durch den Kaufprozess geholfen und äußerst geduldig zwischen allen involvierten Parteien vermittelt (wie Verkäufer, Anwälte, Notare). Zudem
besteht die Möglichkeit, Tracy für den Kauf eine Vollmacht zu erteilen.

Ich kann Tracys Dienste uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen und würde jedem raten, sie zu kontaktieren, falls sie oder er etwas ein interessantes Objekt auf dieser Seite finden. Tracy ist eine kompetente und professionelle Maklerin, sie ist äußerst nett und geduldig in persönlicher Korrespondenz und absolut vertrauenswürdig. Ihr spezielles
Wissen für die Region ist ebenfalls ein nicht zu unterschätzender
Vorteil.

Ich wünsche jedem viel Erfolg der Suche nach der perfekten Casa und Tracy nur das Beste. Falls der Bedarf nach weiterer persönlicher Empfehlung besteht, darf bei Tracy gerne nach meinen Kontaktdaten
gefragt werden.

I have recently sold my property with Tracy Dismore from Rasquera Properties. When I put the property on the market I was unaware that my buildings were not registered.

 

Tracy arranged all the documentation needed for the registration and helped me to get the property ready for sale, accompanying me to the notary and always on hand to explain, translate and answer any questions I might have. 

 

After a sale fell through, Tracy immediately re-marketed and promoted the property so that we were able to find a buyer and get it sold within one week of it being back on the market. 

 

I would recommend Tracy as an honest and conscientious estate agent. I have recently given her the power of attorney to be my legal representative for all my Spanish transactions.

Cheryl Ellen Brown. Bovera. Lleida. Spain. August 2021

Very happy with the way you handled the sale. Difficult and complicated circumstances, but we got there in the end. Highly recommend Rasquera Properties. Thanks Tracy. 

David Marriott. Calpe. Spain May 2021

“Can I take this opportunity to thank Tracy and her team for all their help in my house sale. Tracy really went the extra mile and provided clear and up to date information throughout the process and I felt reassured and comfortable in her handling of the financial transaction.

I would encourage other people to use Tracy and Rasquera Properties, as the service I received was faultless.”

Sam. M. Rainbow. Penzance. Cornwall UK. April 2021

Having just sold my house in Riba Roja through Tracy at Rasquera Properties I would just like to say a HUGE thank you, what a painless experience it turned out to be.

Having given Tracy power of attorney whilst I stopped in the UK made things so easy, I literally had to do nothing!!

Tracy did everything asked and more, so rare to find an honest and trustworthy company these days , so if you’re buying or selling in Spain you know exactly where to look, thanx once again Tracy, and  best wishes for the future.

Drew, Oct 2020.

Thank you so much Tracy for all you have done for me in respect of the sale of a finca in El Perello. I live in the Canary Islands but you took care of everything without me having to go to Catalunya which was a relief because of the COVID19 situation.

I couldn’t have done it without your help even though I have quite a good understanding of the law. You are professional and one of the few Estate Agents who is actually qualified to do the job. You took care of all the documentation and went the extra mile and when things got tough for me you supported me and got me through.

We got there in the end after all the obstacles and we have become good friends as a result.

I strongly recommend Rasquera Properties for anyone and any nationality and it is the only Company I can recommend. Keep up the good work. I hope you have a long and successful career.

Na n zoektocht en n heleboel huizen bekeken te hebben, zag ik n paar mooie huizen via Tracy te koop staan.  Na n fijn gesprek hebben we de bezichtigingen gepland. Maar tijdens dit gesprek werd het haar meteen duidelijk dat het huis welke zij zeer binnenkort in haar portefeuille kreeg, wel eens ons huis zou kunnen zijn. En inderdaad, n geweldig fijn huis! Tevens heeft ze ons op weg geholpen met contacten, internet, water, beveiliging en de gemeente , ze is nog samen met ons op zoek naar iemand die voor de boomgaard kan zorgen. Dus het is niet alleen de verkoop maar ook daarna kunnen we met vragen bij haar terecht en helpt Tracy waar ze kan!

Door de deskundige en professionele ondersteuning van Tracy hebben wij ons droomhuis gevonden in Benifallet. Tracy heeft ons bij het hele koopproces uitstekend geholpen. Nu adviseert en helpt ze ons nog met praktische zaken ivm het huis. Ze heeft kennis van zaken, heeft een breed netwerk en reageert adequaat en to the point. Wij zijn erg tevreden over haar rol en kunnen haar dan ook zeker aanbevelen! Dank je wel Tracy😊

We used Tracy at Rasquera Properties to sell our little finca which we used for holidays.
We couldn’t come to Spain due to ill health and Tracy acted on our behalf for the sale.  She made sure all our documents and certificates were in order.  Everything was done in a professional manner and went through quite quickly.  We hadn’t actually met Tracy but was told about her and was really pleased with her honest and friendly way she kept us abreast of every step of the way.  We would highly recommend Tracy and would like to thank her for all her help.

“Wir haben bei der Auswahl und dem Kauf unseres Hauses sehr gute Erfahrungen mit Tracy gemacht. Sie hat uns die für uns interessanten Objekte mit viel Engagement und Fachwissen präsentiert und als wir uns für ein Haus entschieden, unterstützte Sie uns über den gesamten Kaufprozess und auch darüber hinaus mit Rat und Tat. Wir sind ihr sehr dankbar für Ihre professionelle Unterstützung und Ihre Beratung bei der vertraglichen Kaufabwicklung. Ohne Ihre Hilfe wäre für uns vieles deutlich komplizierter geworden. Wir können Rasquera Properties bedenkenlos weiterempfehlen.

Now that we have settled into our forever home, I would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to Tracy Dismore of Rasquera Properties.
She is so professional and knows what she is talking about, which is very rare for an estate agent.
I can’t recommend her enough. You can trust her 100/% .
So folks if you are wanting to buy property or sell,  Tracy at Rasquera Properties is the one you can rely on without a doubt .

Thank you Tracy for all the kindness you showed Julio and me. xx

We bought our beautiful home through Tracy at Rasquera Properties 3 years ago.
She is an excellent agent and helped us every step of the way. And was there to advise us afterwards,
Many thanks Tracy.

We were real estate brokers in the United States so we know that buying or selling a home in any country can be a harrowing and frightening experience. We had heard our share of frightening stories about buying in Spain, particularly since Spain allows properties to be listed with multiple agents with little experience and even less ethics. Looking back, we can see that when we found a rural finca on the internet that interested us we were fortunate to have clicked on the link to Tracy’s Rasquera Properties.

Tracy has all the qualities you look for in a real estate professional. She knows the business thoroughly, conducts business honestly and professionally and she works tirelessly. Moreover, she keeps in touch at every step of the way, from when you first contact her until and after the closing. Spanish property registry and conveyance can be an archaic nightmare full of potential pitfalls for buyers and sellers.

We were fortunate to have as a friend a well-regarded Spanish real estate attorney currently living in the States who reviewed all the complex documentation involving deeds and purchasing agreements and she gave a thumbs up to Tracy’s work at each step of the way.

Tracy also has a vast array of contacts with tradesmen whom she can recommend; (sooner or later we will stop bothering her for names of plumbers and electricians.) we’re certain that they would all agree that Tracy is indeed an excellent real estate professional.

Tracy just wanted to thank you sincerely for all your efforts resulting in the sale of my little house. Very grateful to you.

Thank you so much Tracy for handling the sale of our house in Gandesa. Having not been able to travel to Spain for a number of years due to ill health we didn’t make it easy for you, but you went the extra mile in sorting out any debt owed in taxes and utilities and therefore making the whole process totally stress free for us.

The whole process was completed in 2 months! Your hard work, professionalism, and friendliness knew no bounds. I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone looking for an estate agent. Many thanks,

Tracy heeft me fantastisch geholpen de (gecompliceerde) verkoop van mijn huis tot een goed einde te brengen.
Trefwoorden: professioneel, betrouwbaar, betrokken en altijd snelle reacties op mijn mails.

We recently purchased a property in the Tivissa mountains from Tracy and we found her a great person to do business with.

She is a woman of integrity, she is professional and she is hard working. She is also good company.

I can happily recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a property.

„Auf unserer Suche nach eine Finca mit Olivenbäume und einem Häuschen in der Provinz Tarragona, Spanien, sind wir bei der Agentur Rasquera Properties fündig geworden.

Tracy Lee Dismore (Eigentümerin von Rasquera Properties) hat uns mit viel Geduld und Sachwissen alle gewünschten Objekte gezeigt und die Details dazu erklärt.

Zum einen hatten wir keine Kenntnisse über den formellen Ablauf in Spanien, und unsere Sprachkenntnisse sind für Banken- und Behördenangelegenheit bei Weitem nicht ausreichend. Daher waren wir von Tracy Dismore sehr angetan, dass sie uns durch den ganzen Behörden-Dschungel begleitet hat. Und das kann man wörtlich nehmen. So haben wir innerhalb weniger Tage die ganzen Formalitäten erledigen können.

Fazit: Die Abwicklung über Rasquera Properties ist unkompliziert und man wird auch nach dem Kauf nicht im Stich gelassen.“

Tracy I wanted to thank you for going the extra mile throughout the whole sale process. I have nothing but praises for not only your integrity and professionalism but also for your willingness to solve the smaller issues beyond your business responsibilities.

Many thanks again. Fondest wishes for a great and successful year.

“I was introduced to Tracy by a satisfied client of hers. Her work for me was not straightforward as she had to take on power of attorney to enable the sale to proceed in my absence (I am now in the UK). Her work has always been very professional and helpful, she supplied a number of potential purchasers, conducted viewings, undertook negotiations and liaised with the Notary, finalising the sale without a hitch. Additionally, she kindly changed the names on the utility accounts to the new owners for me. She is competent in several languages and has very good knowledge of the area. I’ve been really happy with all her help and highly recommend her as a knowledgeable and trustworthy estate agent.”

SUE STEED. UK 

This year, 2017, I purchased a finca through Rasquera Properties and Tracy has been my total support, sounding board and ‘angel’ throughout the process.  At the very start she picked us up (3 raucous ladies) and drove us uncomplainingly around a selection of properties, and I very soon discovered that she was a fount of information about the houses, the areas, Spanish life and house buying in general.  I found the house I wanted to buy and Tracy continued her unfailing support, I am sure beyond the call of duty.

On returning to the UK I needed to acquire an NIE number, but acquiring the form to acquire the number was a test of even my imagination – Tracy managed to download one and email it to me.

On my return to Spain, to exchange & complete on the house, Tracy sat through two prolonged visits to two banks to act as my translator, in order to set up my bank account.

Finally, due to circumstances beyond our control, I was unable to complete on the house as planned during this last trip – I therefore handed Power of Attorney to Tracy so that she could complete this on my behalf.  This obviously requires a leap of faith, but I had no qualms whatsoever in trusting Tracy with this.  She was also kind enough to handle payments on my behalf that I needed to make for repairs I wanted to be done asap. 

House buying can be a stressful venture, not least when buying abroad, but Tracy has been a great communicator right through the process, all my questions and emails have been answered very promptly and I have been able to enjoy the whole process without any sleepless nights.  THANK YOU Tracy!

Shelley Ross. Devon. UK

Thank you to Tracy at Rasquera Properties for guiding us through the sale of our Spanish country house. She was at the same time professional and approachable and guided us through an emotional time, as the house sale was due to a change in personal circumstances. Tracy was able to advise us and help with everything from contracts to delays with inheritance. And also found us the little village house of our dreams well within our budget.
Highly recommend.

Sarah Gubbay. France

Tracy is een bevlogen en gepassioneerde makelaar.

Ze is zeer professioneel, heeft kennis van zaken, is goed op de hoogte van de lokale ins en outs, en kent de juiste kanalen.

Ze ondersteunt je gedurende de hele zoektocht naar het juiste huis tot en met de afronding van de koop, en is daarbij zeer stipt, nauwkeurig en invoelend.

Wij hebben ontzettend veel aan haar begeleiding gehad en raden haar iedereen ten zeerste aan.

Hi Tracy

Now the dust has settled a little, I would like to thank you for your help with the purchase of the finca in El Masroig.

We are looking forward to getting it habitable and hoping to have good use of it for many years to come.

We have been delighted with the service from Rasquera Properties – very helpful, and prompt replies to our multitude of questions and also getting bank account and NIE numbers sorted to make the whole transaction as painless as possible – we would recommend you without reservation.

Steve & Ailsa Phillips. UK.

Hi Tracy ,

Just a short thank you for selling our property, by us giving you Power of Attorney, 
everything was completed in a quick and professional manner, saving us having to travel back and forth.
We would highly recommend you to anyone.

Tracy is the living antithesis of what the imagination conjures up whenever the word “estate agent” is mentioned.

Having known Tracy for about 12 years, I was most surprised to see her new choice of direction. She has always stood out for her creativity, independence, fairness, wide vision, humanity, strength of character, and forever striving for objectivity with a strong moral and ethical base.

In an area that has been plagued with “cowboy/grab and run” type agents that have, and still do, perpetuate every scam in the book plus a few more, Tracy has exploded onto the scene and stands out a mile from her competitors.

She is relentless in trying to cater to her clients’ needs, taking into account and processing a wide range of factors and providing a wealth of helpful suggestions and contacts along the way. She has surrounded herself and works with a close-knit professional legal team whose excellence is unmatched in the area. A more exhaustive, accurate, timely and professional group would be difficult to find.

Tracy also has a vast web of local building contacts, electrical and mechanical installers, machinery workers, agrarian and building technicians, and is able to provide 100% bona fide paperwork on all issues, such as permits, legalizations, habitability certificates, deeds, etc.

Unlike most other agents in the area, Tracy has completed an officially recognized government course and is one of a mere handful of people qualified to operate as estate agents. She also masters all the legal jargon and has the necessary translation skills to function perfectly in all millieux related to this field.

In short, if you want excellence, professional advise and help at all stages of your purchasing or selling journey, just make it simple and call Tracy!

Tracy is most generous in sharing sacks’ worth of added value and info and besides, in all likelihood, you will make a good friend along the way!

Selling or buying? Start to finish in a straight line. Let truth and clarity prevail!

We have been delighted by the service offered us. We live in the UK, and due to other commitments were unable to travel to Spain for the sale of our property. By granting Power of Attorney to Tracy  we were able to ensure the sale went through within one month. Communication, via email, was excellent.

In our case some outstanding water rates needed to be paid and a new set of deeds obtained, as we had lost the originals. In our opinion, the service went above and beyond the standard we expected and we would have no hesitation in recommending Rasquera Properties. The whole process was much easier than selling a property in the UK.

Thank you

Haz Wij waren enorm blij met Rasquera Properties toen we een huis zochten in de buurt van Rasquera.
Tracy heeft kosten noch moeite gespaard om werkelijk alles voor ons voor elkaar te krijgen:
het juiste huis vinden, helpen met het regelen van alle benodigde papieren, ondersteuning bij de bank, de gemeente en de notaris, spaans en catalaans vertalen, en uitleggen van het hele legale traject.
Dit alles met groot enthousiasme en veel kennis van zaken. Tracy is precies de persoon die je graag bij je hebt in een vreemd land, iemand die je kunt vertrouwen, die weet waar ze over praat, en die alle belangrijke zaken voor je kan regelen.
Muchas gracias Tracy!Groetjes,

I found a lovely little property in Rasquera but was worried about having to deal with the legal side of the purchase in a foreign country. My fears were unfounded as Tracy from Rasquera Properties was excellent. She accompanied me to the offices to obtain the NIE number, and to the bank to open an account. She even attended to the sale transaction using a power of attorney after I had returned to the UK. Everything went smoothly.

Now that I am looking to improve the property, Tracy has again been on hand to recommend reputable builders who have shown me examples of their quality work. I have every confidence that things will progress smoothly again.
