A little later the Romans occupied the island and additional towns including Palma and Pollensa, were founded and the island began to flourish.

How quality employees create a quality Estate Agents

Selling properties, as is the primary job of a Real Estate Agency is no easy task and it requires a combination of a number of skill sets to ensure that the job is done efficiently. Being a leading real estate agency, as in the case of First Mallorca means that there are an awful lot of processes that must be taken care of in order to find the ideal buyer and finalise all details of the sale.

Where many real estate companies focus on the sales department in order to get their results, at First Mallorca we recognise the importance of having a quality team working in other areas of the company. Management, admin, law, finance, and after-sales are all examples of areas in which we have a quality team working to help us provide quality results overall. Customer satisfaction is just as important as the sale of a property, if not more so, which is why a great deal of time and effort goes into delivering the best possible service to each and every customer through the process. This is the main objective of each of our staff members who are all professional and dedicated to their work.
