"We decided to purchase a vacation property in the beginning of 2017. Being cautious, we communicated with numerous realtors prior to our house-hunting expedition. We really loved Stelios from all of our email communications, as he was prompt, comprehensive, and insightful! Upon meeting Stelios in person, we provided him with a list of 25+ properties we were interested in seeing and he discussed our objectives of wanting a place that would be easy for us to maintain from the United States and would also provide some rental income. Stelios, not only brought us to all of the properties that were available on our list, he also showed us many others. Ultimately, we purchased a place that he found for us! It has turned out to be a fantastic choice as it rents easily, was turnkey in terms of on sight property managers, and best of all, it was way below our expected budget! He helped us get some extra’s thrown into our deal, provided guidance on ROI, and long distance property management. We couldn’t be more thrilled with our purchase. Aside from being an excellent and skilled realtor, Stelios works hard and is extremely honest and of high moral character. We now consider him a friend and try to see him each time we return to Crete. Thank you Stelios for making our Greek dreams come true!"

‘’For some years we were looking for an apartment around the Mediterranean Sea. Finally we found an apartment in Rethymnon, close to the sea and with sea view. Just what we were looking for! Homeland and Stelios was a great help for us, from presenting the apartment, guided us through the documents, lawyers etc. Stelios offered us an extra ordinary service. We are so satisfied. The things we appreciate with Crete are the hospitality, the sun, nice climate, member of EU and we feel safe here. Crete is also only four hours flight from Scandinavia.’’

"Thanks to Homeland, we bought a fantastic house on a beachfront. The Homeland team and, in particular, Stelios Archontakis made everything possible for this to happen - from initial marketing to introducing us to a selling party. We never regretted about the choice we made and we remain very grateful to Homeland for such a professional work."

"We arrived to live in Crete on midsummer’s day 2000. We had sold our house in London, bought some wrecked old village houses, and our dream was to escape from the UK and live in a rural village near to the coast and make a small income from renting our newly renovated houses.This venture was more successful than we expected, and we were later able to sell the business on and build a new home.
In 2007 we were looking for a suitable location to live with a big view and no close neighbours.
We saw a piece of land on “Homeland” web site, but we could not find it, so we arranged to meet Stelios at the land. I liked him immediately because he did not know what make of car he drove.
We bought the land and Stelios helped us to commission the house and project managed the build for us, smoothing out any difficulties with bureaucracy, liaising with the builders always being cheerful and helpful. His office is in a convenient location close to the marina in Rethymno, with nice coffee!
We have lived in the house now for 5 years and we are still amazed by the views and the nature around us. During all this time Stelios has always been there for us if we have had any kind of problem to sort out, even if it was nothing to do with the house. He is always accessible, cheerful and imaginative. Thank you Stelio for all your help!"

"When buying this beautiful house in 2015, Stelios assisted us in more than one way, his service extends to so much more than only the necessary paperwork. We can highly recommend Homeland for there professional way of working with just that little more in personal assistance."
