About Alegra Estates

Alegra Estates was founded in 2006 by husband and wife, Mark and Joy, after they decided to leave behind the busy city life of London and make the move to Estepona with their children. In 2019, they renamed the business to Alegra Estates, after the birth of their first granddaughter, Daisy Alegra Browne.

The name Alegra is of Latin origin and means ‘cheerful’ or ‘happy’, words that well describe the Spanish lifestyle and everything it has to offer.

At Alegra, we like to keep everything in-house. This allows us to provide the best possible service, ensuring client satisfaction and giving our clients peace of mind knowing we take care of everything ourselves.

Due to our shared network of properties with other agents along the Coast, we are also able to offer our clients as much choice as possible, allowing them to use the services of just one trusted agent and in turn, making the buying process that much simpler and more enjoyable.

With a well-established network of contacts in the community, we don’t just offer traditional buying and selling services, but are able to guide our clients with fiscal and legal services, area knowledge, schooling advice, interior design and local tradesmen.

Buying or selling abroad can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. Take it from people who have been through the process themselves – let us do all the hard work for you!
