Our Happy Buyers...

Buyers Reviews

Dorothy & Bruce Woods

We used King Emlak on the basis that other buyers within Dalyan recommended their service, we were both impressed by their professional manner in which they helped us to purchase and finalise all the paperwork, especially in our absence.  Leanne was particularly helpful throughout the whole process and I would not hesitate in recommending King Emlak to future buyers, you won’t be disappointed.

Adrian Fryer – fell in love with Fire Opal & couldnt stay away!

My first experience of King Emlak was in 2012 when l  visited Dalyan and fell in love with the town and surrounding area and thought how wonderful to live in a such a beautiful place.  King Emlak had arranged the accommodation with me prior to my visit and I couldn’t have been more delighted with the accommodation which l had chosen with their great guidance and advice on accommodation and places of choice in Dalyan.  I was so impressed by the whole holiday and the apartment at Fire Opal I made a decision while in holiday I would be back to buy an apartment, in fact I was so I’m happy where I was staying that I have now purchased the apartment that l fell in love with back in 2012.

King Emlak and the team made buying my apartment an joyful experience and could not have been simpler, all the worry of purchasing property in Turkey, understanding  the process and translating the documents was all explained with care and consideration with professionalism. I’m was at ease the whole time, while I  felt safe and secure while the whole transfers of property deed and ownership was smoothly assisted with the help 24/7 of King Emlak.  I wouldn’t hesitate to make sure any furthermore or purchasing of property I would return to King Emlak each time.

Chris & Michelle 2016 – Visited Dalyan decided to stay

We have been travelling to Turkey for 13 years visiting and staying at numerous places.  We went on a day trip to Dalyan in May 2014 and we loved it so much we went back in the August and have been going back ever since.

In September this year we decided we wanted to buy our own piece of Dalyan and booked a flight for a 4 day trip in October.  We contacted King Emlak and got a response immediately from Leanne.  We sent over a list of properties to King Emlak and flew over a week later. We were greeted by Leanne and the rest of the King Emlak team and off we went with Leanne for a day of viewings, not only the ones we chose but also some that Leanne thought we might like too.

After visiting Sunstone villas we immediately knew this would not only be the one for us but also our friends and family to visit too.

Leanne took us back the following day (our last day) and we agreed a price and filled in all the relevant paperwork and left the final completion of the property to King Emlak as we flew back home. Each and every day afterwards we were kept in touch with developments and had any questions answered immediately, right through to completion.

Such a smooth and easy process and aided by a fantastic team at King Emlak all the way, in particular Leanne.

 Diane Green 2016 – Fell in love with the place and the people

I first visited Dalyan 10 years ago and immediately fell in love with both the place and the wonderful people. It has been a long held dream of mine to one day have an apartment there. I was recommended to use King Emlak from some friends I have made in the village and on various expat sites and so the process began to search for my new home.

I arranged to visit Dalyan in July and Leanne from King Emlak had nine properties lined up for me to view, all within my price range. I was picked up from my hotel and the viewings began. Leanne definitely saved the best till last, not an apartment but a small 2 bedroom duplex villa, something that I thought would have been beyond my price range.  A second viewing was arranged, a price was agreed with the vendor and the deal was done.

It can be daunting to think about buying a property abroad but Leanne and all the team at King Emlak made this process an absolute breeze,  nothing is too much trouble for them, I had my hand held every step of the way by the lovely Leanne. Military Approval sought and granted, fees paid, Tapu in my hand and on October 5th my dream was realised,  I now own my home in Dalyan and will be moving to live there permanently in March 2017.

The service from King Emlak does not stop with the sale, a few minor snags with my property were quickly sorted out, I know that it is in safe hands over the winter with monthly checks arranged to ensure everything is ok.  I will also be using King Emlak for some of the renovations I would like to make in my property once I am living there.

I cannot recommend King Emlak highly enough, they offer a professional service every step of the way, but it is a service with real heart, trust, and not  to forget smiles and laughs along the way. Thank you for helping me make my dream come true.

Mel & Gez White Oct 2015 New builder, sellers and then buyers again! 

From the first moment we walked through the door at King Emlak, having decided to relocate to Turkey, a warm welcoming staff greeted us. We had a wonderful day viewing properties, with no one trying to talk us into anything and we were so impressed by previous builds, undertaken by the team, that we decided to buy off plan. From the clearing of the plot to the final completion we received weekly email updates with photos attached. The build was completed before schedule, the quality outstanding and the after service exceptional. Cut to 3 years later, King Emlak’s professionalism, knowledge and honesty enabled us to sell our property and buy another in Dalyan that, once again, met our needs and exceeded our expectations. Thankyou King Emlak.

Hayley & Phil Jackson- Villa Olemez buyers Oct 2015

‘We bought Villa Olemez in October 2015, it was our first experience of buying property abroad so we had lots of questions and worries! Leanne and the team at King Emlak helped us immensly from starting our search several months earlier all the way through the buying process. Everything was easy and the process was very smooth.  We are very happy with our Turkish home and its great to know the King Emlak Team are on hand to help us with anything at anytime’.

Jamie & Graeme – Villa Edman is our dream come true

When we decided to explore the idea of buying a holiday home in Dalyan anyone that we spoke to instantly directed us towards King Emlak. Buying overseas can be quite daunting therefore recommendation was very important to us.

At our initial meeting with Leanne she immediately put us at ease and explained the simple process that we would need to go through and also put us in touch with a fantastic mortgage broker. From that moment going forward Leanne and the team at King Emlak held our hands throughout the whole process from accompanied viewings, dealing with price negotiation and dealing with all paperwork aspects.

The day of completion was no different, transporting us to the necessary places and organising the utilities to be transferred to us. After completion the team where still there and still are if we needed or need any help or advice, we now use their rental team who offer a fantastic service meaning we have nothing to worry about when we are back at home in the U.K.

Denise & Keith Bugler Zircon Apart 2015

Our experience of buying our apartment with King Emlak was second to none. Firstly we were very nervous as you hear so many frightening stories about buying property abroad.  However we had nothing to worry about. The staff at King Emlak are amazing and our buying experience was made so easy for us with help every step of the way.  It was all done and dusted very quickly with no stress to ourselves. We are so happy with our apartment and the way it was all handled by King Emlak. Even better the after care service is amazing. We can pop in if we need any help with anything at all and the staff always help us with any queries or any improvements we want to make. I highly recommend them and would not hesitate to use them again.

Louise & Sean Burnett -Unlu Apart 2015 -Were just window shopping…

Our experience with King Emlak was truly wonderful from just having a look in the window and day dreaming whilst on our first ever trip to Dalyan to buying our little place. Meeting everybody in the office who made us feel that nothing was too much trouble even though we had no intention of buying made us feel comfortable enough to go ahead and buy somewhere (most impulsive decision ever) , Don’t regret a single thing and now when in Dalyan always pop into the office to say hello as I feel like we have friends there.

Marc & Lesley  Poulaud 2014 – Their Turkish dream became a reality

Although the prospect of buying a property abroad is very daunting, the repeated advice we got was to use a reputable and professional agent which we did – King Emlak based in Dalyan. They were extremely helpful in identifying the right property for us and guided us expertly through the buying process. King Emlak has a great team of Turkish and English people and are very well connected to the various legal and council organisations. Everything was planned and organised for us – we flew in and completed the process in a single day with the folks from King Emlak ferrying us around to sign various documents. This made it very straightforward and took all the stress out of it. We are extremely grateful to Faz and Leanne for their very professional help in making our Turkish villa dream a reality and therefore highly recommend them.

Bridie & Bobby Stewart 2015- Found their little piece of paradise!

Where to begin…….?!!!! Having lived in Dalyan in the past for a couple of years, and having had a terrible time with a totally different Emlak, we were extremely wary of buying again. However, after researching, and doing our homework, we decided to pay King Emlak a visit. From the very first enquiry, we were treated with courtesy and respect. We had a limited budget, and were after a small one bedroom apartment. We talked about our requirements, and were shown a wide variety of properties. Not once did we feel pressured, if something wasn’t “right” , we said so, and were shown more suitable properties. King Emlak found us our ideal property, and we flew back to the UK. They took care of the entire buying process, every step was explained to us, and within a short period of time, approx 6 weeks, we were the proud owners of our little piece of paradise!!! The story doesn’t end there! It was our intention to move out and live in our little apartment, however, due to a few health issues, this was not immediately viable. So we enquired about letting our property out to long term tenants. Sonuc found a lovely couple who looked after our place as though it was their own. Renting it out was easy, again, everything was explained, and it was all made very easy for us, giving us total peace of mind.

Wendy & Keith Biggin came into the office in 2014 – just to look but just had to buy

We have been looking in the King Emlak window for ten years, this year we actually went into the office with the intention of looking and not buying! Faz and Leanne took care to understand what we were looking for in an apartment and compiled a short list. Leanne ensured that our viewings were relaxed but professional, and we soon realised we had found the place for us, we couldn’t allow it to get away!

Both Leanne and Faz were very knowledgeable with all the details. They were able to advise clearly about probable costs of ownership and the ins and outs of buying and selling.

So we did end up buying that week!  They gave us every confidence in buying property in a foreign country and took the mystery out of everything. We found the whole experience impressive. We would whole-heartedly recommend the King Emlak Team!

Ben & Christina Cahill bought for the second time in 2014

We found the whole team at King Emlak very helpful, efficient and professional.  We have purchased two properties and sold one with King Emlak as our agents over the past six years and would highly recommend them.  The after sales service is also to be commended as nothing is to much trouble for Faz, Sezgin and their team. We would always recommend King Emlak!

Mark & Rhonda had a drama free purchase in 2014

Before buying a Villa we researched local estate agents in Dalyan and King Emlak received excellent reviews, always available responsive and extremely helpful. We did not know how purchasing a Villa would work. We needn’t have worried, King Emlak understood our requirements from day one and details of selected Villas were e-mailed to us for review and to draw up a short list. We visited Dalyan a couple of times to view our shortlist and King Emlak had made all arrangements and were helpful but not intrusive during the viewings. Between visits video’s of properties we were made specifically for us and e-mailed over, which we found extremely useful. Once we found our Villa, the purchase process could not have been easier. In summary there has been no dramas throughout the whole process from day one to final purchase. In fact we have received support and genuine advice beyond the actual purchase process which we have found really helpful.

Bev & Martyn Bissett take the plunge in 2014

Having spent the last few years loving our holidays in Dalyan we decided to take the plunge and buy a small place of our own. We spoke to lots of owners and the overwhelming response was to trust King Emlak to help with our purchase and we have not been disappointed. We first met Faz twelve months before we found a property, she was honest, upfront and really informative and helpful. Once we fell in love with one of the apartments Leanne took over helping us through the paperwork and she has been an absolute delight to do business with. Always there at the end of an email keeping us informed and holding our hands all the way through. Some renovation work has since been completed by Anouk who kept us up to date with emails and pictures. All our experience was wonderful, we felt that they shared in our excitement buying our first property abroad and really wanted the best for us. We were treated like royalty and believe me our budget didn’t reflect that. Our future plans are to retire to Dalyan and buy a much larger villa and there is only one estate agents we would consider. Thanks King Emlak team.

Val Walker researched all about us online in 2014 first!!

We decided that we wished to buy a house in Dalyan, I sought advice on-line, through Facebook and Turkish Living Forum and also in person from British residents in Dalyan. Of the many Emlaks in the town, King was the only one that received 100% recommendation without reservation!
I contacted Faz and made arrangements to view several properties. The viewings were conducted by Sezgin who listened and understood our requirements. We very quickly found a property that ticked all our boxes at a reasonable asking price.
The legal process was simple and easy to understand and King were helpful all along the way. I would not hesitate in recommending King Emlak to anyone looking for a property in Dalyan and it is good to know that such a friendly and helpful group are at the end of the phone/email or in the office if we ever need help or advice.

Domenik, Ray & Loes – new partners in Dalyan: Autumn 2014

It was the first time for us to buy a house in turkey and it was pretty exciting. The most important part was to find the right partner and we were so please to find one in Dalyan.

King Emlak is more than just a real estate agent. It is a service agency who provides the best help from step one to the last. You never walk alone is one of the best slogan which fits to this agency.

Communication is clear – what you see is definitely what you get. As a foreigner in a different country a lot of questions and uncertainties were coming up and due to the proper accompaniment everything was crystal clear. King Emlak does not stop after the closing of the contract – they offer help and support for all other “small little things”;-) Perfect service – perfect price. The best reliable partner you can wish! Yes… we are new fans of King Emlak.

Rob & Lyn Lamont –influenced by tortoises not ice cream – honest!

After many years of visiting Turkey, we decided to view properties in the  Dalyan region. We are based in the Middle East and King Emlak stood out as a professional agency offering a wide range of properties.  There was frequent and precise communication to update us on the procedure. We felt we (and our funds) were in safe hands. We chose four houses to view and on day one found our beautiful new home near lake Koycegiz. Sezgin took us to viewings and did not pressure us in any way, we could take our time and take our viewings at our own pace  ( I must mention the quick stop  to Sezgins favourite local homemade ice cream parlour, not that it influenced our decision to live in that area- that was the tortoises roaming around in the garden!)
The buying process went smoothly with all the professional friendly help given by the team, we soon became proud owners of our villa and hope to be living there full time this year and will continue our friendship with King Emlak team and would not hesitate to recommend their services.

Maurice & Chris: after years of visiting they have found a home in 2014

The first time we went to Dalyan was in 1994 and we fell in love with the place, it was quiet, beautiful and truly Turkish. After this first trip we went several times and we decided to buy something. We visited several estate agencies but were immediately attracted by the competencies, help and kindness we received from King Emlak. We had a lot of accurate explanations about the proceedings and the properties themselves. So last year we found a lovely villa in the Arikbasi area and thanks to King Emlak, we are now the happy owners of a lovely spot. It all went so smooth and perfect, this would not happen in Belgium. We are very grateful to King Emlak and have our little Paradise and realize our dream.

Beryl & Tony Baker – 2014 saw them become the new King and Queen of Emerald Villas

Firstly,I would like to make it clear that King Emlak are no ordinary Estate  Agents. It seems the team all possess special magical powers.They certainly waved their wand for us and turned our hopes and dreams into reality.

After our first trip, we were totally captivated by Dalyan’s charms.We returned in May´14 with a view to purchasing a holiday home.We approached several other estate agents and got close to buying but we were let down at the last minute, then we stepped into the office of King Emlak . It was different from the others and was vibrant, friendly and welcoming. Faz listened attentively  to our requirements and took us to view four carefully selected properties. We were impressed by the way in which she opened our mind to different possibilities. We fell instantly in love with one of their own builds. From then on, the lovely King Emlak people guided us firmly by the hand until completion of purchase. They arranged absolutely everything and after completion the team are still there for us and we trust them implicitly. We can sit at home in the U.K. safe in the knowledge that our property is having regular checks.

The King Emlak team are like one big happy family of which we feel a part. They are all special people and long may their magic last. I wonder where they hide their wand ?

Sharon & Alistair Brown find their place in the Sun(stone)

Alistair and I have always dreamed of having a place in the sun. We first visited Dalyan in 2012 and fell in love with it. In April´14 we decided to look for a holiday home here.

We visited a number of properties in Dalyan but eventually found the one that was right for us with the assistance of King Emlak. Sezgin and Fazile were so helpful and talked us through the whole process of buying a property in Turkey, which turned out to be far easier than we had expected. One of my main worries was buying furniture but Faz took all of those worries away and even helped us by arranging delivery of our new furniture.Everyone was very helpful, they were always on hand should we have any more questions.

We can definitely recommend King Emlak as nothing was too much trouble, they are truly amazing.Compared to our experiences with Estate agents back in England, the services provided were outstanding, surpassing anything we have experienced back home.

Peter & Norma Furlong find ‘the right one’ at last

We had been looking to buy a villa in Dalyan for well over twelve months now but it had to be close to our friends who also have a villa here. We would see plots of land and ask for locations, King Emlak staff were always quick to reply to our e-mail requests but it just wasn’t right for us – the house hunting continued – the team where always happy to take us to view suitable properties and completely understood if it didn’t tick the right boxes.
Finally in late June the “right” one came on the market and that’s when the Emlak team really kicked in. You see and hear so many horror stories of “when things went wrong” and it’s only human to be scared but the team put your mind at ease and you understand just how above board and professional they are. Although back home in Liverpool we just knew we could trust King Emlak to ensure our sale went through smoothly. They really did go the extra mile for us,even after the sale had been finalised the service didn’t stop, you are still kept up to date, I doubt you could get better service anywhere else. We had a dream come true, if it’s your dream, follow it- Call in to see them, you won’t be disappointed.

Karl & Jane Ratcliffe – Villa love at first sight

We first visited Dalyan in September 2013 and it was love after the first week. Within a few weeks of being home, we booked to go back and arranged with King Emlak to view several properties. We chose King Emlak over other estate agents as firstly their website was user friendly and advertised a wealth of different properties but also because they had good reviews. From the moment, we saw our villa we knew it was the one and we made an offer the next day. A price was agreed and we went back to see the villa before we flew back to England. King Emlak made the whole experience of buying abroad stress-free and went above and beyond the expectations of a UK estate agent driving us here and there, making all the appointments, giving us advice and information and always keeping us informed. Fazile, Sezgin, Leanne and Sonuc were always professional but friendly and approachable. Finally on September 29th 2014, the villa was ours and we can’t thank King Emlak enough for all their help and patience.

The Griffith´s found 2014 the year to invest in Dalyan

After being captivated by the beauty of Dalyan over a number of years ,we decided that this stunning location was the place to invest in a villa. We looked at lots of Villas with several agents, but never quite found what we wanted. I decided to give King Emlak a call and we weren’t disappointed, from day one the service was excellent. We were shown Amber Villa’s and knew instantly that this was the one for us. Faz and the team guided us through the whole process giving the correct advice when we needed it. We have since invested into the property with a tasteful refurbishment completed late 2014 .Our relationship will continue with King Emlak as our rental agent.

Simon & Karen found their Lazy Duck- second time lucky! 2013 not so unDucky! We had been to Dalyan and had loved the area. Having decided to purchase, we sought out the services of a local estate agent. For us, King Emlak was the preferred choice.They provided us with a selection of properties, helping to to view them and fielding our queries.  We located a property and started the buying process.

Unfortunately, the seller’s halted the sale. Without any fuss our hesitation, King Emlak returned our deposit. We continued our search and shortly thereafter located and completed the purchase of a Villa in Dalyan. We were very pleased with the highly professional services of King Emlak. The support through the search and buying process was excellent. We found them to be very principled and reliable. We felt that we were in safe hands, something that is essential, especially when buying from outside Turkey. This is our second purchase in Turkey over the last decade, but our first via King Emlak . We couldn’t have made a better choice.

Mike and Di Dyer looking to retire to dalyan next year

We first visited turkey five years ago and fell in love with Dalyan. In May 2013 we purchased our Villa and can only say the ‘King Emlak Experience’ has been fantastic. From beginning until we signed our Tapu, the whole team journeyed us through a totally stress free and very informative experience, helping us to open bank accounts, sorting out direct debits and  helping us with the general maintenance work required at the villa, and always with a smile.

Thank you all for a very professional approach to everything.

Making dreams come true for Simone Slotboom & her family

A good friend introduced us to King Emlak. He said specifically: don’t do anything until you’ve spoken to them! So we did and over several cups of tea we discussed my tiny budget. Fazile made me feel at ease though and reassured me that King Emlak prided itself in not just having rich customers, but making dreams come true for common people as well.

Before I knew it I was driving around town with Alev who showed me all sorts of places within my budget.  That same week I made my very first offer and was really excited. When it was rejected, I put in a new bid, as high as I could possible afford, but the owner wanted more. I was really disappointed, but Alev reassured me that we would find something else to my taste.

Three months later I came back to Dalyan, excited to go house hunting again. Luck was on my side this time. I fell hard for a beautiful duplex villa on a small, quiet complex just a five minute stroll from the centre. Alev encouraged me to put in an offer and I dreaded the owner’s reply. I knew this was the house I wanted and so did my son -it had felt like home, but I could not stretch my offer more than I already had. Out on excursion the next day, the offer was excepted! It felt like fate.

After that the real work started. Financing the house and getting all the paperwork ready. King Emlak was there for me every step of the way, guiding me through all the Turkish red tape and explaining the procedures.

Christmas Day 2011, I got the best present ever: the tapu for my very own villa. My dream had not only come true, it was better than I had ever imagined. A proper house with porch, balcony and shared pool and gardens. Without the help of all the lovely people at King Emlak that would never have been possible. So I guess they lend fate a huge hand!

So if you have a dream like mine, just go in for a chat and I’m sure King Emlak can make yours come true as well!

Duncan & Ceyda Denley – Popping the question and designing a better life for their future

Having scoured much of the Turkish coastline for property, and met with countless agents, my wife and I found a perfect match for us in Dalyan with King Emlak.

Sezgin, Fazile and the team were fantastic when I announced that I would be proposing during our stay. They set us up with a lovely rental villa and even loaned me their family car to drive up a nearby hill where I buckled at the knee and popped the question!

As a chartered landscape architect and keen outdoor enthusiast, I was immediately taken with the natural beauty of the area and quickly realised that this was a place where I would like to spend more time. I met with King Emlak to discuss purchasing land in the area and the local planning regulations.  Having never purchased land in Turkey before, and being based thousands of kilometers away in Dubai, we were nervous about the whole buying process. With the patience of a saint, and a great knowledge of the process, Fazile guided us through the negotiations until a deal was struck.

We now are the proud owners of a beautiful plot of land in Dalyan, and are planning to develop a wonderful property for the future. My wife and I really could not have got this far without King Emlak. They stand out from the crowd and are genuinely helpful, leading you step by step through the buying process.

We are now planning our property and are consulting King Emlak with regards to building regulations and potential rental incomes. Sezgin and his team are interested in building long-term relationships with their clients and we would be happy to recommend their services to anyone pondering taking the leap.

Dennis & Sue Hunt´s dream becomes a reality

İn 2012 we purchased a 2 Bedroom Apartment in Dalyan. Dalyan is a lovely traditional Turkish town situated on the river overlooking the Ancient Rock Tombs and surrounded by mountains. The local people are so friendly. We fell in love with it at first sight and thanks to the efficiency of the team at King Emlak our dream became a reality. King Emlak and Sonuc, who is our point of contact always take care of us when we visit. We find Sonuc approachable and friendly, which makes our stay in Dalyan run smoothly.

Thanks to Sonuc and the team we feel our Apartment is in good hands and look forward to a long professional relationship with them.

Fiona & Andrew Cramer just couldn’t stay away….

As with the majority of those who visit Dalyan, once you’ve been you just keep going back!

So, when we decided that we wanted to buy a property abroad Dalyan was the only choice. We were so lucky that the King Emlak website was the first we clicked on. We saw a house which we thought we would like and less than a week later, having e-mailed Faz before we arrived, we were viewing what is now our lovely Turkey home.

Once the decision to buy had been made and our offer accepted the buying process could not have been made easier, all thanks to the King Emlak team. They arranged every step of the way and there was always a member of staff available to help with translation or to answer the numerous questions we had!We very highly recommend King Emlak when you’re looking for your perfect holiday home. You won’t be disappointed. They are reliable, friendly and always willing to make some tea when you pop into the office.

Zina Booth bought a lovely two bedroomed Apartment in 2013

“I had the good fortune to find a property that I loved, being marketed by King Emlak!”My decision to purchase was made very quickly, almost on the spur of the moment, but from the very first contact with the King Emlak team I never once doubted a fabulous outcome!

Not only did they help me with all the Turkish legalities of purchase, but they are now taking care of my property for holiday rentals.

They have all been fantastic, and, as many others have said, nothing seems to have been to much trouble….They all make everything seem so easy and instil confidence with their honest, professional one to one service. There is no “pressure” selling… just sound and knowledgeable advice. All of them have made me feel “special” responding to my queries in record time and keeping me in the loop via emails..

Their service is outstanding and offers so many extras!!  From bank account set up, and how to request automatic payments of bills to more unusual things. At present they are about to embark on a shopping trip to Ikea, and bring some hard to find goodies back for my apartment…..I don’t know of any estate agents in England who would do that!

My personal thanks to all of them for making my dream come a step closer to becoming a reality!!

Rita and Mac Mcloughlin bought a house and got married in Dalyan in 2012

May 2012 was an extremely busy month for us, not only were we buying a property in Dalyan,we were getting married there, and exporting a dog.

This very hectic time was made so much easier by the care, support, and efficiency of Sezgin, Faz and their wonderful team. From start to finish they listened to our needs, kept us informed and provided us with many services to aid in the smooth running of the sale. The after sales service was first class and the whole process was handled in a friendly, professional and caring way. We would certainly recommend King Emlak to other potential buyers.

Liz and Dave Vowles finalised the purchase of their detached villa in 2012

Whilst on holiday, we called into King Emlak purely out of curiosity and had the pleasure of meeting Faz, Sezgin and their team.

We came away with information on several properties resulting in us requesting a couple of viewings. We saw a property we fell in love with but unfortunately, time wasn’t on our side as we were leaving the next day.  Once home, we contacted Faz.  From that day she guided us through every stage of the buying process by e mail and phone with extreme professionalism and we are now proud owners of a Dalyan property.

Our thanks to everyone who made our purchase possible.  We cannot rate you highly enough.

Phil and Penny Sparrow bought their second Dalyan property through King Emlak

 A big thank you, what a great team – you are the best and made our purchase so easy.

Sezgin was great in negotiating the best price for us and Faz and Burcu took us through all the paperwork and explaining everything to us at each stage of the buying process. We are back in the UK and Alev is doing a brilliant job in keeping us informed as we near the completion of our purchase.

We can’t wait to get back to Dalyan and start enjoying our holiday home. Keep up the good work you’re all doing a brilliant job

Hilary Wilkinson bought a King Emlak built villa in 2012

This is the first time I have bought a property abroad, and I found the experience absolutely straightforward and stress free.

King Emlak did everything for me, in a friendly and efficient manner. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them, from transferring the utilities to my name, to helping me open a bank account and even writing down the Turkish for shampoo and conditioner for me!

Their after sales service seems great too. I know that if I need any alterations, cleaning or maintenance in my villa, then I need only ask, and it will be arranged.

John & Alyson Tweddle spent 3 years looking for the right property

King Emlak, namely Faz and Sezgin are the wonder workers of Dalyan who make dreams come true! It was fortunate for us that we met them our first time in Dalyan and they have assisted and encouraged us every step of the way to realise our dream of a retirement home in this beautiful area of Turkey. Sezgin is currently building our new house in Arikbasi and the process in achieving this from looking at properties to deciding to self build has been absolutely painless. Every stage of the build from land purchase, issue of Tapu, design, commission, obtaining residents permits etc all have been achieved seamlessly. We cannot thank them and their team enough.

Rod and Di Canning looked with several agents in 2011 before deciding on King Emlak

We instantly fell in love with Dalyan on our first holiday there in 2007 and we have returned every year since. Deciding to buy in 2010 we made an initial visit to view properties in October and going in to King Emlak by chance was the best move we made. Faz immediately showed us a variety of properties and we were impressed with her unbiased and honest approach. After returning for a week in April 2011 with the intention to spend every day looking at properties we found our perfect villa on the very first day! From viewings to purchase the service we experienced was first class – Faz even negotiated our purchase out of office hours when she was eating dinner with friends! Buying in a foreign country can be daunting but with Faz, Sezgin and their team guiding and advising us every step of the way the whole process was a dream. Nothing was too trivial for them to deal with, every process was fully explained and every member of the team behaved in a professional and efficient manner. They took away the stress enabling us to enjoy the excitement involved in buying a new property! The aftercare is even better than we could have expected and we just want to say a huge thank you to everyone at King Emlak for helping us get our own little piece of Turkish Delight!

Sue Fletcher bought a bijou 1 bed!

I used King Emlak for the purchase of my property in January 2011. Faz, Sezgin and their team were extremely friendly and helpful overcoming language barriers and the legal side of things. They were on hand to guide me through the whole of the purchasing procedure, helping me set up bank accounts, registering the property with the local council and setting up the utilities. I also used the renovations team for some extension work. This was project managed by Anouk who kept me fully informed of the progress with weekly updates and photos. The work was completed on time and I have reaped the benefits of this many times. I cannot recommend them enough. Exceptional service. Thank you.

Derek Davis & Gail Taylor-Davis bought their 2-bedroom apartment in 2011

When we decided to buy an apartment in Dalyan we were introduced to King Emlak by the vendors and we found Faz and all her colleagues to be extremely professional and helpful, even down to Burju accompanying us to the bank to lead us through the procedures of opening bank accounts and to Ortaca to get registered. Whenever we popped into their offices with yet another question we were always welcomed with a friendly smile and it seemed that nothing was too much trouble. Faz organised all the legal side of the transaction and ensured that everything went smoothly, even though we were back in the UK by the time the deeds were transferred. After the sale Faz is helping with setting up the rental arrangements and Anouk is doing a great job efficiently organising the building work we are having carried out. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a property in beautiful Dalyan.

Denis & Paula Hogg bought a King Emlak new build in 2011

We decided to buy a villa in Dalyan because we love the area so much. Luckily, after viewing a number of properties we decided on Amber Villas, a new property King Emlak had built. We hadn’t planned on a newly built property but were blown away by the standard of workmanship and location. However, we were a bit fearful of all the potential pitfalls. We needn’t have worried about a thing as the whole process was really quick and simple and we were guided by King Emlak throughout. We have the utmost trust in their professionalism and integrity. Effectively, they handled all the legal and banking matters and made sure our interests were protected at all times. I think by using King’s experience and expertise, we avoided several thousands of pounds of legal costs.

We have decided to rent out our villa when we’re not there and King’s will be managing it for us. Faz and Sez have assembled a great team around them and we’re looking forward to a long and profitable working relationship with King’s Rental.

Brian & Debbie Cheetham had a windfall and bought an apartment

We would like to thank you all for making the daunting task of buying abroad seem plain sailing. Your help through the whole process and also afterwards for those little niggles and piece of mind have been exceptional. Thanks once again.

Chris, Ruben and Marjolijn Sterkens have a beautiful countryside apartment

We have been coming to Dalyan for many years and finally decided to look for a property here last summer. I told King Emlak and they kept me posted about properties for sale. During our stay in December 2010 Sezgin showed us a place that was exactly what we wanted. After that, everything went smoothly. It is such a luxury to deal with people who know their business and who offer you multilingual service. At the deeds office, there was an issue due to my lack of an international passport, which we Belgians do not need to travel. Faz, Sezgin and Burcu were very helpful and managed to arrange everything by the next day, making all necessary phonecalls and talking to the right people. Such a relief that was! Our mother tongue is Dutch, so it came to us as a nice surprise that they even have a Dutch speaking colleague, Anouk, who can be contacted for any practical concern of our property.

David and Christine Broomfield have bought & sold with King Emlak several times

Approx two years ago, after looking to buy a property abroad, we finally decided to look for a property in Dalyan. We visited several estate agents in town then had the good fortune to meet Faz and Sez at King Emlak. We found them to be very straight forward and honest in all our dealings with them and they very soon found us the property we had been looking for. Due to the help from Faz and Sez, the transactions went through very smoothly. Since we purchased our property, we have had various improvements done to the bathrooms, kitchen etc. and with the help of the after sales team, in particular Anouk, all the work has been done to our complete satisfaction. We were so happy with the service they provided that we have since bought and sold a villa at their Amber Villas project and are now in the process of purchasing another property in their new project Fire Opal apartments. We are confident this will prove to be as successful as our previous purchases. It is very reassuring to know that whilst we are in England, our property in Dalyan is being looked after by the King Emlak team.

Alan Davison became the proud owner of a 2 bed house in 2011

I first met Faz in July 2010 during my first visit to Dalyan. I was toying with the idea of purchasing but had visited a number of agents and not been greeted with much of a welcome. As soon as I sat down Faz demonstrated an interest in me and what I was looking for. She showed me the details of a wide range of properties in my price range and arranged for one of the King Emlak staff to take me to a number of those that I was interested in. When I had an offer accepted Faz and Sezgin worked extremely hard to ensure all the necessary paperwork was completed before I returned to the UK; this included ferrying me around to notaries and the like. Following completion, they have continued to be available to help and always welcome us when we return. Faz and Sezgin are the most professional and caring agents I have ever met.

Neil McMakin is delighted with his detached villa and Dalyan.

We had been looking for a villa in Turkey for approximately 2 years during which time we have travelled virtually the length and breadth of Turkey in our search. We decided that Dalyan was the place for us – the climate is perfect, the town is small but not too small and offers all the amenities required, the surrounding countryside is beautiful and Dalyan is situated with easy access to many other areas of Turkey….quiet but not off the beaten track.

We were guided to King Emlak by a mutual friend who recommended them highly. We instantly fell in love with the last property seen and bought it on the spot! The process of buying passed smoothly without any problems or glitches. Their professionalism and approach is exceptional and really make you feel that they are with you all the way.

Karen, Natasha and Kirsty Mitchell purchased a detached villa.

We chose to travel through Turkey by bus to explore the culture of Turkey fullyand encountered any number of estate agents all wanting to offer their property services, some of which were not qualified to do so. We did not feel comfortable with any of these offers and returned to the UK. The following year my friend returned to Dalyan and found King Emlak.

The purchase whilst scary when spending such large amounts of money was swift and painless. Support was second to none and I was impressed with the legal points raised by Faz and Sezgin in addition to those I had already raised. I asked for the services of an English solicitor, which in hindsight was not really needed, as King Emlak had fulfilled all the requirements of the process legally correctly.

Often once a sale is made, the customer service falls, but in the case of King Emlak, this in fact has increased. Sezgin kindly took us shopping for furniture, assisted with bank details and legal matters and even arranged for our purchases to be delivered or collected and delivered to the villa. On the day of moving into the new villa, King Emlak were waiting outside to show us services and how things worked, lights etc.

King Emlak are not just an Estate Agent, but offer a wide range or building repairs, maintenance services. If they can’t directly resolve a problem they will assist in finding the solution. I am truly impressed and in turn now seeking to improve my business connections and have entered into a second purchase for rental.

Greg Frank & Peter Oldridge own three properties in Dalyan.

We purchased our second property in Dalyan in April 2010 and used King Emlak again because when we bought our first place King Emlak were simply the best.

To sum up our experience of dealing with King Emlak, it was professional, honest, friendly, helpful and organised.

Sandie and Alan Hayman found the home of their dreams.

After living in Dalyan for almost four years we got itchy feet! Sezgin and Faz helped us find our dream property in a charming hamlet near Ortaca but the purchase was not going to be straightforward due to the location restrictions. Sezgin rose to the challenge and guided us through the bureaucratic maze and we are now living in paradise.

Meanwhile Faz, supported by the team at King Emlak, marketed our Dalyan villa and within two months of moving, it was sold. We will always be grateful to Sezgin and Faz, whose dogged determination and professionalism allowed us to move on swiftly to a new chapter in our lives.

Nick Dunnell decided to buy on Monday and bought on Tuesday!

I came to Dalyan for the first time in the summer of 2009 and fell in love with the place – so much so that I decided on the spur of the moment to buy a place, but I only had two days before I was due to leave.

I shook on the deal at 5.45pm and then flew back to England hours later leaving things in the hands of Faz. I must say that I really appreciated the speed with which the viewings were organised as I’d given Faz and Sezgin less than 24 hours. The whole process from start to finish went through very smoothly and I appreciated the friendly help and advice from Faz during the various stages of the purchase.

Kerstin and Robert Brente from Stockholm, Sweden, finalised a purchase of a private villa in August 2010.

We visited Dalyan for the first time in the purchase process in April 2010 after several discussions by mail and telephone with Faz. King Emlak made a very good impression and gave good advice. When we arrived we were shown several houses by Sezgin and finally made our choice. Sezgin had prepared the showings very well and the selection was correct.

We found quite fast that we had made the right choice of agent and we were completly taken care of. When the purchase was finished in August, all the practical matters with tax numbers, insurances, etc were taken care of by King Emlak in a very professional way.

Stephen and Janet McHugh purchased a holiday apartment in 2009.

We had an excellent service from you and would like to let other people know.

Patricia Dragisic & Gary Brannon live permanantly in Dalyan in there detached villa bought 2009.

The buying process was made as straight forward as possible as we were guided from viewings right through to completion. Nothing seemed to much trouble for Sezgin and the team, everyone went above and beyond what İ could have expected. I can honestly say I am delighted with the service provided and as such I am also using King’s rental services.
I can also highly recommend the repair and home improvement services of King Emlak. They provided very competitive quotes and a breakdown of the work to be done and the times for completion. We were involved at every stage of decision making, and any changes were incorporated with minimum problems and completed to the highest standard.

Peter and Sally Wheeler bought there 2 bed property 2010.

After some time trawling the internet, we decided to use them and really could not praise the service and support we received enough! We came to Dalyan as novice purchasers with a modest investment and an intent to find our “place in the sun”. Faz showed us a good spread of property which helped to focus our minds on what we really needed. Sound advice, invaluable assistance and sympathetic and effective intervention has taken away any of the panic from the inevitable ups and downs of purchase. We are now planning further improvements and continue to receive advice and practical help from King Emlak.

Pleased as punch with the 3 Bed House they bought in 2008

We visited King Emlak in February of this year on a recommendation, it’s daunting enough buying property abroad so a recommendation was much appreciated.   It soon became apparent on our first meeting with Faz and Sez that they were very good at their job and we were immediately at ease with them, they listened to us and made a list of all the properties they thought would fit our criteria, they then arranged for us to view them and even though there were a lot of properties there was no rush and no pressure to buy, that was such a welcome relief.   Since this was our first purchase abroad we had a lot of questions for Faz and Sez and they were very clear and informative on the whole process start to finish.   We would definitely recommend King Emlak to others as not only did they help us find our ideal villa but have also assisted us in other aspects, i.e. the air conditioning units, the furniture and furnishings and the maintenance, this goes beyond the average estate agent.   On our return home they have continued to stay in touch and have kept us updated on the progress via email, they have provided and maintained an excellent service throughout.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to both Faz and Sez.

Steve bought his Two Bed Apartment in 2008

When I first came to Dalyan trying to decide if it was a place where I wanted to buy a property & spend quality time, Faz & Ses immediately made me feel welcome.  I felt assured that they would show me a range of properties that suited my needs , which they duly did by taking me to visit everything. Nothing was too much trouble.  All my questions were and have been answered. They arranged all the paperwork & legalities in Turkey- leaving me with nothing to worry about..

Then when the purchase was complete & I visited for the first time, they were there to deal with all the little jobs needed to make my new property feel like home.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service they have given me, everything they promised they would do, they have done . They have been professional & efficient but above all trustworthy and friendly.

Use them!!

Doug made his purchase of a 3 Bed House in 2008 and now successfully rents it

Earlier this year I bought a three bedroom villa from King Emlak and, in all honesty, it was the least stressful property purchase I have ever made.  Both its partners are truly bilingual English/Turkish, one is British born one and the other a Dalyan native, and that reduced my worries a great deal.  But what is really excellent about King Emlak is the quality of the service – they are 100% customer focused.  As a prospective buyer, I could not fault them at any stage of process – from the well designed website (informative, with good images and up to date – unlike many of the others I viewed), through the speedy email responses, to the way I was treated in Dalyan.  The day we spent viewing was beautifully organised: Faz had an in-depth knowledge of the villas and apartments we saw and, more to the point, did not at any stage attempt to cover up any issues or potential problems we raised.

I would recommend King Emlak to anyone – it is a young, client-centred business and one that truly understands the needs and concerns of those considering buying ‘a place in the sun’.

Gary and Alasdair are joint investors in a 3 Bed House bought in 2008 which they now successfully let

Dear Faz and Sez,
Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help and advice you gave, and continue to give in finding us our perfect villa, handling all the legal factors and furnishing it.  From the initial viewings to signing the final contracts you have been honest, reliable and helpful beyond the call of duty, and priceless in arranging and translating things.  We wish you continued success, and will always call in and see you when we are home in Dalyan as we always receive such a warm welcome and look upon you as freinds and neighbours we can rely on.

Yours sincerely,
Gary & Alasdair

Shahnaz and Jawed are multiple investors in Turkey

Buying your first property abroad can feel scary. We remember our first time in Dalyan. For us the fear was removed through Trust, Competence and Professionalism (TCP)!

King Emlak earned our trust through their demonstrated competence and professionalism.

Fazile and Sezkin are a complimentary competent team. Fazile, a lady brought up in England understands Western tastes, took great care to ensure that we got exactly what we wanted by listening, advising and providing clear explanations. Sezkin, a Dalyan man who personally knows many of the local officials, understands the Turkish system inside out used his charm to lubricate the wheels. Our journey of buying has been an exciting pleasure because we have been accompanied by two courteous and warm professionals at every stage.

Marilyn Webb is the Proud Owner of a 2 Bed Flat since 2007

When i first decided to purchase  a home in Turkey I read all the books and scoured the internet for advise .  Which all lead me to believe it would be very stressful and with many pitfalls but was determined to go ahead anyway .  I felt especially venerable as i was on my own having lost my beloved husband the previously year .  I thought long and hard about which area to search in after many years of holidays in different areas .  But decided on the Dalaman Dalyan Sarigernie  area.   Well  it could of been stressful but thanks to Faz and Sez the whole process has been wonderful exciting stress free experience .  They really cared about what was best for my wellbeing especially being on my own not just making the most profit .  They guided me through all the legal issues and made it fun .   With their expert help we found a home that was perfect  for me in Dalyan  But it doesn’t stop there  they helped me with shopping for furniture homewear  carpenters guiding me all the way  with friendly but totally professional expertise .
I will always recommend Faz and Sez to others indeed my sister who has been with me all the way has decided with her husband to follow me and also purchase in Dalyan using King Emlak.

Lucy & Mark Gregory & May Chapman purchased a semi detached house in 2007

We found that of all the estate agents in Dalyan,King Emlak had an excellent range of properties at really competitive prices.  We found a house we loved towards the end of a holiday and there was insufficient time left to make proper enquiries so we conducted all our enquiries via e-mail from the UK.  King Emlak took car of everything on our behalf from arranging a survey and electrical report through to speaking with neighbours to establish answers to questions that we had raised about the property.  They dealt with everything from legal issues to shopping for furniture and assisted with translations with electricians, plasterers and plumbers.   Unbelievably this is all part of the service and has been provided at no extra cost.  Buying our holiday home has been made unbelievably simple and completely stress free.  Post completion King Emlak has continued to provide us with a comprehensive service and help us with every aspect of furnishing and maintaining our holiday home.  I would thoroughly recommend King Emlak to others and would have no hesitation in using them again.

Brian & Doreen Wood purchased a new detached villa with pool in 2006

We have been coming to Dalyan for the last four years and we fell in love with the village from Day 1.  We chose king Emlak because they were English speaking and very easy to talk to.  King Emlak made the purchase of our property very easy, their door was always open for us to ask questions and they made arrangements for us to view properties without any hard sell.  Sezgin and Fazile were always available either by phone or by email for any questions we had about buying and they took care of all out snagging problems.  We will always recommend King Emlak to any person wishing to buy property in Dalyan.
