Jane has lived on Ibiza since she was a young child when her parents emigrated from Yorkshire. After studying back in the UK Jane along with her parents opened a business in the holiday industry, which they successfully ran for 25 years.
In early 2003, having always been interested in the wonderfully diverse properties of Ibiza, she decided to try her hand at working in the property market. During the last 10 years she has worked for 3 of the foremost agencies on the island, the last being Sotherbys as a director.
Jane has a comprehensive knowledge of Ibiza and its sometimes unusual property laws and regulations. Jane speaks 5 languages, one of which importantly is Ibicenco the local dialect; but her most important attribute is an abundance of patience: to ensure her clients get the best possible opportunities to find their ideal home in the sun.
John moved to Ibiza in 2002 planning to take life easy after selling his successful business in the UK.
Unfortunately, having spent the last 30 years working 6 days a week, taking it easy turned out to be a difficult option for him. After experiencing the complications first-hand of house hunting in Ibiza, John decided to venture into property sales ( as a hobby ! )
Twelve years later, John has many happy clients to his credit, and is just as enthusiastic about his “hobby” as the day he started (he also manages to work 7 not 6 days a week now !)
In 2007 John passed the Spanish exams to become a member of the Asociacion Balear de Asesores Inmobilliarios a professional body overseeing property sales across the Balearics.
After finishing university in Belo Horizonte, Brasil, Lorena made a decision that maybe we’ve all considered at one point in our lives; Moving to Ibiza.
After that happy event in 2004 Lorena didn’t find it difficult to adapt to the magic Balearic lifestyle and immediately started training and working in the real estate business. Now after many years of experience navigating the sometimes complex local real estate market, she enjoys hunting for the perfect property for her clients and is highly successful in matching her clients needs and dreams with reality.
Since 2012 Lorena and Jane Maffin formed the property consultancy company, ‘Real Ibiza’, and this year after joining forces with John Stone they form an even more competent team!
