In Kalkan we liaised with a local real estate agent who showed us the properties on our list. We expressed an interest in one of the properties and he arranged a meeting with the developer, Kemal Tashan of Tashan Developments. After some fairly hard negotiation (as you would expect in Turkey), Kemal turned out to be extremely flexible. We requested many alterations to the property, some of them major and he was amenable to all of our requests. All the horror stories you have heard about Turkish developers do not apply to Kemal. He was also true to his word on 99% of everything we agreed.

As we got further in to the negotiation, I compiled a somewhat lengthy snagging list, which we now joke about. He did not object to any of it (apart from a few minor protestations) and gradually worked through everything on the list in our absence. Tashan Developments give a comprehensive two year warranty on their properties, that genuinely does cover every issue that might occur, even weather related ones for which they are not entirely responsible.

The two year warranty has now expired, but Kemal is still more than willing to assist me with any alterations I make to the villa. On my last visit I wanted to install five hardwired air conditioning remote control units, which turned out to be somewhat problematical. He arranged for an electrician to call round and personally gave me several hours of assistance. Even though this was not his responsibility, there was no charge.

If I were to purchase another property in Kalkan, I would have no hesitation in purchasing again from Kemal. Two years down the line, my wife and I are now friends with Kemal and regularly meet up on a social basis whenever we visit Kalkan.

Dear Kemal

It is a pity that we must leave our home today!

You really did a very good job during winter after we have made our contract. It was a lot of work for both of us – you let us make a lot of decisions during the rebuilding and modernization of our villa. We noticed that you wanted to fulfil our wishes with the highest engagement.

In the last week of April, our suspicion and curiosity grew higher and higher!

After all, when we were here, we saw that everything was done in real high quality as we discussed before. We appreciate your patience and your ability to cooperate in every question we had.

Thanks for all!

P.S. Thanks for our flower shop tours to the different places and your support to find nice plants for planting outside.

Dear Kemal

   We have been living in our property in Kalamar, Kalkan since August '06, during which time you have been more than helpful ensuring, we settle into our new life with the minimum of problems. The design of the villa is very unusual. Spacious balconies ideal for outdoor living and enjoying your lovely weather.

   Although we purchased the villa 'off-plan' we encountered very few problems. Your company was a pleasure to deal with and the whole process was very smooth, completely without pressure from youselves and i feel we have became good friends. With your help our villa has became an enviable 'place in the sun.'

Many thanks

Dear Tashan Property Services

   We purchased our property in Kalamar Bay in October 2004 from the Tashans. We were able to decide on the decor and furnishings for the property with their assistance and are delighted with our purchase. They have always been available should we have needed their assistance with any problems that might have occurred, and indeed Kemal has become a good friend to us.

   We would have no hesitation in dealing with them again, and would be very happy to recommend their services to other potential buyers.

Dear Kemal

  We would like to thank you for helping us in our decision to buy a new home in Kalkan. Throughout the process you kept us informed and updated on all progress. The apartment is beautiful and welcoming, the work up to a high standard and the furnishings supplied are modern and tasteful.

   With your help the whole experience of buying in Kalkan has been a straightforward process and we value your continuing support, even as far as helping us set up our bank accounts in Kalkan, not an easy task when we don't speak a word of Turkish.

   We would have no doubt in recommending Tashanvillas to anyone wishing to make Kalkan their "place in the sun". Thank you again and we look forward to meeting up with you in April.
