Properties Are Us is an estate agent situated in the south of Tenerife. The company team have been residents on the island for many years.


The day to day running of the business is by Michelle and Stuart Smith. Michelle and I have lived in Tenerife for over 25 years, we have great knowledge and experience of the island. We appreciate the place we have chosen to live and now love, and now call home.We have two very beautiful daughters who were both born in Tenerife, Georgia 14 and Rosie 9 which many of our clients have known since they were young babies.

Michelle comes from Essex South Woodham and myself from Exeter Devon married now for 11 happy years.

We have a great team here in the office both myself and my wife along with our new member of Via, who is in charge of the cleaning side of our business and she is a great asset to have.

Between us we have almost 60 years’ experience living in Tenerife.

We pride ourselves in being a family business honest, professional, reliable and hardworking people.

We will go out of way to ensure our customers will get good a service, we do not believe in hard sale we believe in finding the right property for you at the right price, if not today then maybe a few months, or as soon as the right property comes to market.

We keep in contact with our clients always, by email or telephone.

We feel trust is a big factor when dealing with people and that’s what we like to build with all our clients.

One thing for sure when you walk into our office you will find both myself and Michelle.

We do not have sales staff whose only go is to get a sale, and who will show you countless properties that are of no interest to you, because to them you are just a number and they work on commission only.

If it’s not right then don’t just buy for the sake of it, you should not rush into a decision that later you might regret, you would not do that at home so no need to do that here in Tenerife, buying a property is a very big deal.

When you first come to Tenerife and wish to buy a property, there are so many things that you may be uncertain of. We are here to offer you guidance from the very beginning. We will also assist you with the ins and outs of the legal requirements when buying a property in Tenerife, putting you in touch with our professional English speaking bank managers and Lawyers.

Unlike many other agents on the Island we won’t list properties we feel are overpriced hence the fact we have around 40 properties. We feel it’s impossible to have 1000s on your books.

You will find many agents working of Facebook pages rather than a website and many others who work from home with no office, so be careful.

A question you should always ask first to an agent is where your office is situated, don’t be fooled into meeting in a cafe or restaurant or getting picked up in a car.

Also many will only have a mobile number, and if it is a landline number its more than likely their apartment.

And many agents when it does come down to a sale will just rent a room from a Lawyer or some office, to give them some credibility.

So be aware when buying a property here and who you deal with, you would not do this in your home country so no reason to do it here in Tenerife.

We have knowledge and information on the local and private schools, doctors, hospitals, private health insurance, supermarkets, shops, etc. Anything you wish to know about the area you are considering buying we can advise you.

We have our own team of Canarian builders all fully legal and fully insured whom work to a very high standard.

We can also provide details of the best furniture shops should anyone buying a property want to put their own stamp on it. There is a lot to know when it comes to buying a property but one thing for sure we will guide you through it step by step.
