Properties Are Us

About us

Properties Are Us is led by Stuart Smith. Following our dreams, we are based in Tenerife for almost 30 years.


Family owned and operated real estate agency

The day to day running of the business Properties Are Us is led by Stuart Smith. I, Stuart, have lived here in Tenerife for over 30 years. Originally from Exeter Devon, I hold very strong ties with my family and go back to the UK as and when I can.

My agency goes out of way to ensure our customers will get good a service, and do not believe in hard sale. We believe in finding the right property for you at the right price. 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 me, not only 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, so will try to sell you anything just as long as they get a sale. 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.

Friendly service and personal approach

Unlike many other agents on the Island I won’t list properties I feel are overpriced hence the fact we have around 40 good properties which are priced to sell. We like to get to know the owners of properties and spend a good amount of time insuring the best options in getting the right price for their property.

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 café 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 ask yourself 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.

Might 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 job needed be it a 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 at silly o’clock but at a time that’s suits you, and the longest you will have to wait is 10 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. So if you are looking for an honest family run Real Estate Agent then why not pop into our office in Torviscas and say hi.

Stuart Smith
My name is Stuart Smith and I have lived in Tenerife now for almost 30 years. I was born in Exeter in Devon which I still visit around 3/4 times a year to see family. When I first came to Tenerife I worked in a few bars, as you do, then got a job as a children’s entertainer which I had for over 10 years in Garden City. Our office in Torviscas is perfect as buyers get to meet us easily.
