Ibiza property: CE International Real Estate Services – Building beauty, one brick at a time
When it comes to buying property, that old adage ‘location, location, location’ holds strong. It’s rare that buyers get the whole package – location and the perfect house – in one swoop. Thankfully, Ibiza now has an alternative to the common experience of finding something that is almost right but not quite. CE International Real Estate Services is no longer just a real estate agency – this family-owned company has expanded into development and construction.
Founder and long-term Ibiza resident Christina Van Ederen knows her business and the island inside out. “I saw a need for people to get everything they wanted right away,” she says. “They want the best location and a beautiful house and they want to walk in without any hassle.” Christina’s new venture sees her teaming up with an architect to create a construction subsidiary that develops projects from start to finish.
Quality is one of the foundations of CE International Real Estate Services. Christina and her daughter Lisa Tarallo vet every property that passes through the company for everything from construction materials to the correct paperwork. This attention to detail will be at the forefront of the company’s new builds. “We take care of every aspect of the process”, explains Christina. “We find the land, design the property, organise the paperwork and even decorate the homes.” Built in harmony with the landscape and existing styles of the island, the homes will be key-ready. Basically, it’s an instant Ibiza lifestyle – just add yourself.
The romance of an old farmhouse is definitely outweighed by the hassle of its upkeep; the benefits of buying a high quality new home in Ibiza are enormous. You can choose all the beauty of the Ibiza lifestyle with the conveniences of modern design. Energy efficiency and water-wise landscaping is essential – especially in Ibiza. Built in security, entertainment systems, Internet wiring and cabling all make for a smooth transition with zero headaches.
Christina has a very precise eye for what works and what doesn’t. While others may see a beautiful piece of coastal land Christina will already know the law does not allow the kind of construction her clients desire. Where others see a scrubby plot, Christina can envisage an extensive home with guesthouse and pool in a neighbourhood that will soon be demanding premium prices. The scope of her island knowledge – as a resident, as a business owner and as a developer – is endless.
When you’re in the market for an Ibiza home, it’s important to have a team as knowledgeable and experienced as Christina and the CE International Real Estate experts on your side. While many people find the ever-changing Spanish property laws (particularly those in the Balearics) confusing, Christina admits to loving the ins, outs and intricacies they entail, making the process as straightforward as possible for her valued clients.
CE International Real Estate Services employ an insider’s understanding of the market and the law to create beautiful properties of the highest quality. Think spacious, light-filled homes designed to encourage an indoor and outdoor lifestyle in the summer and cosy connections in the winter. Homes where every detail has been considered from the built-in sound system to the material of the pool tiles.
