Most of the estate agents/real estate companies out there have either english speaking staff or english staff. I would suggest googling agents in Estepona, San Pedro which is the next town along, or along the new golden mile Duquesa area where properties are slightly less expensive. If you are talking about a large villa - at least 3 beds with a pool, anywhere around that area, you are looking way over a million pounds in cost, so also if you have any idea if that is feasible or not would help. I think there are costa del sol directories online you can look at, or search on face book for properties on the costa groups as well to share photos in, but you could easily phone lots of agents up from home, make sure you don't ring in the middle of the day as usually closed. Edit: just looked online, there are loads of estate agents listed, I personally would sit and call them all, see if anyone recognises their names. Also looked at villas out there, definitely think if they were looking they would be looking towards Duquesa, beautiful new villas being sold for around 500,000 Euros.
