M.E. Estates: Private Brokerage in Marbella and Sotogrande Real Estate
“It can be a daunting task to develop a clear sense of perspective of a market based on qualified, useful information taken from the multitude of material that comes your way when you consider buying a property, above all in a foreign country”, says Maurice Elst, managing director of M.E. Estates.

M.E. Estates provides a knowledge-based service to its clients in which they place the emphasis on providing expert information and advice as part of what is a dedicated “private home search service”.
As a private brokerage agency in the greater Marbella and Sotogrande area, the boutique firm is focused on delivering discreet and personalised services to its clients.
Prime Property Areas of the Costa del Sol
What’s more, the Costa del Sol property market is going global. Between 2014 and 2021 the real estate sector in Malaga alone experienced very significant growth in the number of homes built and homes sold.
This increase in demand, which has been growing at a phenomenal pace, has been for a large part the direct consequence of the coronavirus pandemic, as confirmed by our statistics and those of most real estate agencies specialising in the high-end market.
This area is one of the most sought-after by tourists and ex-pats, taking advantage of the sunny Spanish weather, and numerous leisure and gastronomic activities throughout the year. This increase in foreign investment has made the sector also increase in terms of real estate value.
Buyers flock to the Costa del Sol for its blessed climate, natural landscape, and high quality of life, making it a widely desired home destination for many. Here are some of the areas that ME Estates have honed in on:
Marbella is a beautiful Spanish seaside town located in the southern region of Spain and offers incredible properties for sale. Everything about Marbella exudes elegance and it is world-renowned for its luxury areas, golf resorts, gastronomy, nightlife and spectacular beaches.
Marbella boasts stunningly beautiful properties, many of them inspired by Andalusian architecture. These homes are a blend of contemporary and traditional architectural designs that give the homes a modern look, but with a touch of local heritage.
It houses different types of homes, including big hillside mansions and estates, modern apartments with spectacular sea views and magnificent villas around Marbella’s golf resorts.
Sotogrande also is considered one of the main luxury residential areas in the southern region. If you like nature, wellness, calm, exclusivity and privacy, it is an ideal place that you should keep in mind to discover.
If you are a sports enthusiast you can enjoy its impressive five golf courses, in particular Valderrama, which is considered one of the best courses in Europe. You will also have the opportunity to attend one of the most awaited professional PGA golf tournaments of the year.
However, the stand-out sporting event here is Polo, the king of elite sports. An absolute must-attend event during the year is the International Polo tournament at the Santa María Polo Club, where you can enjoy a great summer afternoon or early evening of leisure.
Enjoying leisure, family life, friends, sport, nature, sea views and open spaces are an exclusive guarantee of the most select lifestyle in this incredible urbanisation. The Sotogrande International School provides the residents with one of the best international schools in Spain.
Rated consistently as one of the best hotels in Spain, Finca Cortesin is a resort that exudes a true country club environment, much of which also comes from a superb Spa, championship golf course and clubhouse. The hotel has the feel of a landed estate with its acclaimed interior design, complete with luxurious suites and some of the finest restaurants on the Costa del Sol.
The hotel is the focal point of an exclusive residential area that includes both stylish modern apartments and luxurious villas.
