About us



The day to day running of the business is by husband and wife Michelle and Stuart Smith. I have lived in Tenerife for over 25 years, and my wife for over 20 yrs. 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 Via, who is in charge of the cleaning side of our business and 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 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 the owner’s not sales staff.

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. 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 manage 1,000s on your books.

You will find many agents here working off Facebook pages and websites, so please do be careful, anyone can have a Facebook page or website these days it’s that easy.

A question you should always ask first to an agent is where their office is situated, don’t be fooled into meeting in a cafe or restaurant or getting picked up in a car from the street. Most of the good agents here in Tenerife will have an office not just a Facebook page. You have to think the question, why on earth would someone work from home and not have an office to give them more credibility, and miss out on passing trade and walk in clients.

On a more positive side we at Properties Are Us don’t just sell property we also do free aftercare service, we will take you to the best builders merchants to get tiles, we can take you to the best places to buy electrical goods, we will take you to the best shops for furnishings and this service is FREE. You need a telephone and Wi-Fi we again can sort this out for you, we have many contacts here who provide our clients a great service, and this can save you both time and money. We also have fully legal builders for any small job or a full refurbishment.

We do this all FREE because we believe as a family business that’s what we are all about, looking after our clients from start to finish and building a friendship.

Need an NIE number most agents will charge you for this service, we don’t charge our clients, I myself will take you, not silly o’clock but a time that’s suits you, and the longest you will have to wait is 20 minutes not hours and hours. We have a selection of good banks we work with, and again we will be with you to help you open an account arrange direct debits etc.

We also 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.
