escape2balearics.co.uk was established in 2001 to cater specifically
for people looking to buy property in Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza.
The website was launched shortly after after our sister websites
and escape2usa.co.uk. All
enquiries are handled initially from our base in Manchester, where
our experienced and knowledgable staff are happy to offer their expert
advice on buying property in the Balearics. All the properties listed
for sale in Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza are sourced through our network
of trusted partner agents and developers throughtout the Balearics
Islands. We update our website every week to ensure we are NOT one
of those websites where every property was sold 3 years ago!
Over the years we have established strong working relationships with
a number of estate agents in Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza and also
work closely with leading property developers in the Balearics. Because we are independent we pride
ourselves in offering our clients a total service and are happy to
show clients any properties they wish to see.
We are passionate about the Balearics Islands and know each of the
islands very well - buying a property in the Balearics is a big decision
and we are here to offer our expertise every step of the way, from
your initial enquiry through to legal completion on your property.
Building regulations are very strict in the Balearics, and the local
government are very keen to protect the islands and avoid over-development
which has occurred on some areas of mainland Spain. This is great
news for property owners, as prices and rental yields in the Balearics
are amongst the highest in Spain.
Our Balearics property advisor is Paul McMullen. Paul has an
in-depth knowledge of all the islands and has managed the escape2balearics
website since 2005. Having lived in Barcelona, Paul joined our
sister website escapetospain in 2004 and was instrumental in developing the Balearics website.
Paul is a regular contributor to overseas property articles
in the UK national press including the Independent, Daily Telegraph,
Sunday Mirror, Daily Mail as well as many of the specialist
overseas property magazines and overseas property websites.

Thanks for all your help and guidance over the last 4 months, your advice about areas and rental markets in Mallorca was extremely valuable. The viewings you arranged gave us a really good idea of what we did and didn't want.
We received our keys 2 weeks ago and are extremely happy with the apartment and are looking forward to many holidays here over the coming years - thanks again for all your help.

I would like to place on record my appreciation to Paul McMullen from your
office who assisted me in buying an apartment in Palma recently. The email
exchange with Paul came about through your website. I asked a question on
the website and Paul was my initial contact. From that we had a number of
email exchanges. Paul was extremely pro active in his responses, offering
other sites to visit, culminating in arranging site visits for myself and
my family in Palma in July.
Paul was instrumental in providing me with
solid information regarding the properties quickly and responsively and I
feel that his contribution made the process of buying the apartment run
Having never met Paul I do not know him personally but with the emailexchanges I had the feeling that there was a personal touch and for that I am grateful to you and your organisation.
