John moved to Ibiza in 2002 planning to take life easy after selling his successful sales business in the UK. But the habit of work proved hard to kick and after experiencing the complications of house hunting in Ibiza first-hand, he decided to venture into property sales as a “hobby”.
This hobby quickly became serious and within a few years, John was known as the go-to agent for high end sales on the island.
In 2007 he passed the Spanish exams to become a member of the Asociacion Balear de Asesores Inmobilliarios, a professional body overseeing property sales across the Balearics.
He has earned unrivalled respect in the industry and sold hundreds of houses over the last 2 decades, with clients still returning to him year after year.
He is now based primarily in the UK but remains as enthusiastic about his “hobby” as the day he started.
After graduating from Belo Horizonte university in Brazil, Lorena made a decision to move to Ibiza and immediately fell in love with the Balearic lifestyle.
She started working in real estate in 2004, first in rentals then in sales, joining Engel and Volkers in 2009. By 2012 it was time to spread her wings and she established her own consultancy company, ‘Real Ibiza’, together with Jane Maffin and John Stone.
With over a decade’s experience navigating the complex local real estate market, she has a reputation for professionalism and integrity and a passion for finding the dream home for each and every client.
After studying English at Oxford University, Cat worked for a decade as a PR and film producer between New York, LA, and London.
Buying her first house in Ibiza in 2007, she quickly saw a unique opportunity in the market and moved to the island full time, renovating several properties and gaining an intimate knowledge of Ibizan real estate.
This passion for creating beautiful houses extended to helping friends find their dream homes on the island, and so it was the inevitable next step to partner with her favorite agency, Real Ibiza.
Cat brings a shrewd understanding of property values and development potential to the company, together with a keen eye for finding hidden gems for our clients. She splits her time between Ibiza and London, where she focuses on International sales.
