Property consultancy launches in La Zagaleta, Spain
Drawing on a lifetime career in the luxury sector, multilingual property expert Stefano Zuliani has created LZ Properties to market southern Spain’s finest homes. Operating almost exclusively in the elite country estate of La Zagaleta, LZ Properties acts as consultant to the vendor to create the best conditions for selling in the shortest timescales at the highest price.
Stefano explains, “Having worked in-house with La Zagaleta property developers, I came to realise the difficulties owners face when trying to stay on top of dealings with multiple estate agents and client viewings - it’s practically an impossible task. At LZ Properties we take the pressure off the vendor and make sure that the marketing and sale of their multimillion euro home is handled with the utmost discretion. We only accept the best propositions into our portfolio, the crème de la crème and, by keeping the numbers low, I am able to personally attend all viewings armed with the specific requirements of the buyer and intimate knowledge of the house to paint it in its best light.”
Stefano continues, “La Zagaleta is a surprisingly buoyant sector of the southern Spanish real estate market. Here we match homes of high quality and specification to some of the world’s wealthiest and most discerning buyers from Russia, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and beyond. There is still a real appetite to buy within the resort for either holiday use or permanent relocation and La Zagaleta’s watertight high-level security is certainly a strong draw. A property in La Zagaleta doesn't lose value, even in difficult times, and this is a great investment incentive.”
Not an estate agent, far from it, LZ Properties is happy to work alongside expert real estate specialists or indeed market its unparalleled selection of properties directly to the buyer. LZ Properties act as the only point of contact in negotiations in order to control the quality of marketing, photography and protect the vendor’s identity and interests throughout the sales process until contracts are exchanged.
A most valuable tool, the LZ Properties’ website showcases each property to its best potential with full-screen photos, detailed descriptions and downloadable brochures. LZ Properties manages content centrally before distributing “white label” material to selected estate agents. The site is also created with the latest technology to ensure that it’s iPad and smart phone friendly for today’s money-rich but time-poor house hunter.

About La Zagaleta:
The most coveted address in southern Spain, La Zagaleta is a nature reserve occupying 900 hectares of wild Andalucian countryside. This elite community sits in the Benahavís Hills at 450 metres above sea level affording incredible views of the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and North Africa for fortunate residents.
Founded in 1991, La Zagaleta offers a unique country club lifestyle. Three well-stocked lakes allow fishing for trout and carp, a riding club offers stabling for privately owned horses as well as its own purebred Arab and Spanish horses, whilst the Clubhouse has a members´-only restaurant with extensive terracing as well as a bowling alley, swimming pool and billiard room.
Winding through the resort are two 18-hole golf courses, the first designed by Californian Bradford Benz and the second a recent 20 million euro addition called Los Barrancos - both have incomparable views. A lovingly maintained driving range is on-hand for regular practice. Further services exclusively for residents include catering, banking and an operational heliport.
Residential development at La Zagaleta is restricted to less than a third of the entire surface area of the estate and there is an enforced separation of 10 metres between individual villa plots. Respect for the abundant flora and fauna from cork oaks to olive trees and deer to pheasant is part of the La Zagaleta way of life as is highly professional security. The twin entrances are guarded at all times and patrolled security operates throughout the resort.
