It started with a dream about a place in the sun...but in all other countries apartments this close to the sea had a "bad" price when you know the use will be max a month per year. Googling and reading info about Albania made us decide that we fly to Albania to find out more. We fell in love with the country and the friendly people. We told our friends about Albania - told them that it is time to revalue what you heard and knew about this small country. The result was that we bought together with 4 other families a nice flat, in a new house, only 10 meters from the beach - and all this arranged by Albania Property Group, Ilir Konomi, smoothly and safely. APG helped us professional throughout the whole buying process. If you are interested in buying a flat or property in Albania we recommend you start with contacting Ilir Konomi at Albania Property Group! .................................................. Vierailimme ensimmäisen kerran Albaniassa keväällä 2016. Selasimme nettiä ja löysimme paljon positiivista maasta ja usein päädyimme - aluksi vahingossa - kiinteistöjen myynti sivuille. Huomasimme, että aivan merenrannalta löytyy sopivan hintaisia asuntoja. Päätimme tutkia lisää ja lähdimme matkaan. Aloitimme Durresin kohteista, koska lentokenttä oli lähellä. Saimme järjestettyä tapaamisen Albania Property Groupin Ilirin kanssa. Ilir ymmärsi heti minkä tyyppistä ja tasoista asuntoa etsimme. Palvelu oli nopea, asuntoesittelyjä järjestettiin joustavasti. Meillä oli turvallinen olo Ilirin hoitaessa asioitamme. Koko henkilökunnan englanninkielentaito on hyvä. Emme ostaneet siltä reissulta mitään - lensimme kotiin miettimään asiaa. Ihastuimme kuitenkin maan kauneuteen, ihmisten ystävällisyyteen ja auttavaisuuteen, hyvään ruokaan jne. Kerroimme tuttaville kokemuksistamme ja yhtäkkiä olimmekin viiden perheen kimppa-asuntoa ostamassa! Teimme kaupat toukokuussa 2016. Asunnon sisäpinnat, wc ja keittiö olivat tekemättä. Istuimme yhden iltapäivän Albania Property Groupin suunnittelijan, Junan, kanssa suunnittelemassa ja valitsemassa materiaaleja. Loput asiat hoidimme sähköpostitse parin seuraavan kk:n aikana. Heinäkuun puolenvälin aikaan kävimme katsomassa miltä näyttää - hyvin oli rakentaminen ja sisustaminen toiminut etätyönä - asunto oli valmis! Olemme oikein tyytyväisiä ja suosittelemme muillekin Albania Property Groupin palveluita, kun olet hankkimassa asuntoa Albaniasta.

After an online search I encountered Albania Property Group. I received their answer immediately after my first request. It was a very good first impression, and after first Skype call I have decided to choose them for my apartment purchase. Ilir has been really helpful along the way and have showed his patience and professional understanding of the property market of Albania. I have been to Albania for 3 times now and have bought one apartment in Lura complex in Gjiri Lalzit, which I am very happy for. Thanks Ilir and his team for the help. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to purchase property in Albania. We are more like friends than business partner now. I would encourage people to visit this beautiful country which has a lot to offer.

We found Albania Property Group and indeed Ilir through our initial Google searches for ‘buying property in Albania’ we found the website easy to use and navigate through the types of property that were currently for sale. It also provided a wealth of information for those looking to invest in Albania and the process of buying a property with a very useful guide. One property stood out for us at the time we were looking so we made contact with Albania property group to make enquiries. We sent an email to Albania Property Group and Ilir Konomi the managing director was very quick to respond and let us know the property we were interested in was still for sale. Within a couple of weeks we had arranged to go and view the property, we met with Ilir and the property owner and everything was as described on the website. We spent a good few hours with them both and Ilir spent some time explaining the whole buying process to us including the legal aspect, which really helped. After some negotiations and us viewing some other property in different parts of Albania we made the decision to buy the first property we had seen. Ilir guided us through this process and kept us updated regularly with the progress of the sale. My husband and myself were very impressed with Ilir and his professionalism from the start and this did not change throughout the process, I can highly recommend Albania Property Group to anyone looking to buy or invest in property Albania. Since buying the property Ilir has also put us in touch with architects Iva and Gjergj whom we have been working with for the past few months to re design the house, we are also very happy with the service they have provided us and with their help we almost have detailed design plans to start the re build. Ilir is very knowledgeable and passionate about Albania and by far the best estate agent in this region, he speaks perfect English has some great contacts and can provide a rental service if you decide to invest – you will not be disappointed.

While looking in google for apartment in Albania coast, I found Albania Property Group together with other Albanian real estate companies . The immediate answer I got only from Mr Ilir Konomi, director of Albania Property Group. In very short time we spoke via Skype about details to clarify our wishes. We choose one apartment in Radhime and I decided to go there to finish all necessary formalities in Albania. It was a bit complicated to reach Tirana from Abu Dhabi (my recent work place) but Ilir was extremely helpful; pick up me on Airport, manage meeting with developer, notary, bank and all papers were done in few hours. HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL! Next day he drove me personal 2 hours far from Tirana to see the apartment which is still under construction. I spent wonderful first time in Albania and Ilir Konomi and his team made me feel to be with close friends. I'm very looking forward to meet this guy again and his team as well. We have a lot to do before everything will be finished and I'm not afraid to leave everything in hands of Albania Property Group. I found the country and the people very friendly, with beautiful nature, excellent tasty & healthy in variety of Albanian food and in developing mode. Everywhere construction of new houses, new roads, infrastructure... Wish good luck in building modern society and can't wait to visit my new friends... I highly recommend Albania Property Group when you're looking for any service as buying or renting property or you just want to spent some time in pleasant place on Albania's riviera.

From the start everything was very clear: the information provided to me by Albania Property Group was very helpfull, and their website is very organised. Lots of pictures, videos, floorplans for all the properties on my interest. As a client not knowing much about Albania real estate market it was so easy for me to understand about for buying, property managment, or renting. I was looking for finished apartments in the beach of Durres. And when I arrived we started a property tour together with Ilir (the director of Albania Property Group) and visited exactly what fitted my requirements. The staff of the company are multilingual, cultivated, and very communivatice at the same time. Next Juna (the architect of Albania Property Group) helped me design and next coordinated the full furniture package for my apartment. In January I managed to move directly into my new apartment next to the beach. Saffet Arslan - France ----------------------------------------- Dès le début, avec les informations que Albania Property Group m'a donné, tout s'était très clair, ils m'ont beaucoup aide, leur site official c’est très bien organisé. Chaque propriété que j’étais intéressée à le voir en détaille, il y avait les photos, vidéos et le plans d'étage. Comme un client qui ne sait pas beaucoup sur le marché immobilier en Albanie, grâce à eux il a était très facile de comprendre comment acheter, manager ou de louer une propriété. Je cherchais des appartements déjà construit près de la plage de la ville de Durresi. Quand je me suis arrivé là j’ai commencé la visite dans les propriétés avec Ilir (le directeur d’Albania Property Group) et on a visité exactement ce que répondais à mes exigences. Le personnel de la compagnie est polyglotte, cultivé et très communicatif dans le même temps. Puis, Juna (l'architecte d’Albania Propety Group) m’aider de faire le plan et puis m’a coordonné tous les meubles pour mon appartement. En Janvier je réussis à déplacer directement dans mon nouvel appartement à côté de la plage. Saffet Arslan - France

My wife and I knew nothing about Albania real estate when I decided to purchase an apartment in Saranda. I contacted several agents from a variety of agencies. Albania Property Group proved to be unmatched by any other agent in expertise, communication and enthusiasm. We have no problem recommending Albania Property Group to family, friends and colleagues in the future should they make the same decision as we did.

Zenon Chmielewski - Poland ★★★★★

To start my long story I will simply say that Albania Property Group is the best estate agency in Albania. Not easy to begin, because I have so many memories from Albania where I used to live between 2001 and 2006. When I took a plane from Marseille to Tirana via Zürich for the first time I was shaking like not hard boiled egg. Surely I had my work contract in the pocket for ADF (Albania Development Fund) but the country was completely mysterious for me. Once I landed at the Rinas Airport, delayed by 7 hours I understood the isolation of the country. The terminal was like a piece of scramble. The Police everywhere, not surprising, it was like in my previous countries Ghana, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Romania, Turkmenistan, Armenia and few others. The poor driver was waiting for me. Once I passed the control and nothing to declare we took the “road” something like bumpers that they put here to reduce the speed. There was no electricity, dull, raining, like the end of the world…but there was something exceptional from the start. The Albanians!!! So generous and opened minded, speaking English, Italian, Russian. I had my first glass of home made Raki so I slept well. Woke up in the morning and the sun was there and smiles as well. I admire these people even being Polish and still remembering difficult times in my country. The image of Albania is bad everywhere, mafia etc… It is wrong and created by the medias only. All the bad Albanians are away. It is fantastic country with great climate. I lived even in Kukes on the border with Kosovo. Quite cold there but very nice in spring and summer time. At that time there was only 2 roads to join Tirana, one via curvy, holed bitumen 5, 6 hours of driving, the other one via Skoder. Now there is a highway with tunnels!!! like Nice to Monte Carlo. That's why I purchased first apartment in Tirana for weekends. After I decided to buy the other one on the cost in Saranda. Just in front of Korfou if you want to compare lazy Greeks and hardworking Albanians. I still have plenty of friends there. Coming back to my experiences with APG it was a fortune and great luck for to meet Ilir Konomi. Reworking unfortunately in France I had to give up with my apartment in Saranda. I saw few agencies but APG was the only one to be really serious. In 2007 crisis started in EU and everywhere so it was very difficult . Ilir never gave up and being assisted by his professional juridical team he managed to sell my apartment at the conditions I wished. He gave all his heart to help me and never hesitated to call me or email me to ask and advice. REAL PROFESSIONAL who helps the other ones without any interest for himself. Try to find the same service in France! I live in Cagnes sur Mer, close to Nice now and I can guaranty you that the agencies look only for theirs commissions only and once they touched your money they forget you. It is not the case of Illir, he is still in contact with me and I wish I could be in Tirana or Saranda eating Levrek, Koce or my favourites so called Barbuns!!!! I truly recommend APG as the best Real Estate Agency in Albania. Zenon Chmielewski ......................................... Pour commencer ma longue histoire, je dirai simplement que l'Albanie Property Group est la meilleure agence immobilière en Albanie. Pas facile de commencer, parce que j'ai tant de souvenirs de l'Albanie où j'ai vecu entre 2001 et 2006. Quand j'ai pris l'avion de Marseille à Tirana via Zürich, pour la première fois je tremblais comme un oeuf. Certes, je devais mon contrat de travail dans la poche pour le ADF (Fonds de développement d'Albanie) mais le pays était complètement mystérieu pour moi. Une fois que j'atterri à l'aéroport de Rinas, retardé de 7 heures, je compris l'isolement du pays. Le terminal était comme un morceau d'hangare. La Police partout, pas surprenant, ça était comme dans mes précédents pays : Ghana, Lettonie, Lituanie, Biélorussie, Roumanie, Turkménistan, Arménie et quelques autres. Le pauvre chauffeur m'attendait. Une fois que je suis passé le contrôle nous avons pris la "route" quelque chose une piste pour tester les voitures. Il n'y avait pas d'électricité, tristesse, la forte pluie, comme la fin du monde ... mais il y avait quelque chose d'exceptionnel dès le début. Les Albanais !!! Aussigénéreux et ouvert d'esprit, parlant anglais, italien, russe. J'ai eu mon premier verre de Raki fait maison donc j'ai bien dormi. Réveillé le matin, le soleil était de retour et le sourire aussi. J'admire ces gens, même en etant polonais je me suviens toujours des moments difficiles dans mon pays. L'image de l'Albanie est mauvais partout, mafia etc ... Il est faux et créé par les médias. Tous les mauvais Albanais sont loin. C'est un pays fantastique avec un climat delicieu. J'ai vecu même à Kukes à la frontière avec le Kosovo. Il à fait froid là-bas, mais très agréable au printemps et en été. A cette époque, il n'y avait que 2 routes pour rejoindre Tirana, une via montagnes, bitume troué, 5, 6 heures de conduite, l'autre via Skoder, pas mieux Maintenant, il y a une autoroute avec des tunnels !!! comme entre Nice et Monte Carlo. Voilà pourquoi je l'ai acheté monpremier appartement à Tirana pour passer le week-ends. Après avoir décidé d'acheter l'autre sur la cote à Saranda. Juste en face de Korfou si vous voulez comparer les paresseux Grecs et les Albanais qui travaillent dur. J'ai encore beaucoup d'amis là-bas. Pour en revenir à mes expériences avec APG c'est presque un miracle et grande chance pour moi de rencontrer Ilir Konomi. Malheureusement il fallait que retourne en France et j'ai du me sepparer de mon appartement à Saranda. J'ai vu quelques agences, mais APG était la seule à être vraiment sérieuse. En 2007 la crise a commencé dans l'UE et partout dans le monde, donc les temps sont devenus très difficile pour le marche immobilier. Ilir n'a jamais abandonné et heuressement bien assisté par son professionnelle,équipe juridique il a réussi à vendre mon appartement dans les conditions que je voulais. Il a donné tout son cœur pour me aider et n'a jamais hésité à me téléphoner ou écrire pour demander des conseils. Un veritable pro qui aide les autres sans aucun intérêt pour lui-même. Essayez de trouver le même service en France! Je vis à Cagnes sur Mer, près de Nice maintenant et je peux vous garantir que les agences ne recherchent que leur commissions. C'est pas le cas de Illir, il est toujours en contact avec moi et je souhaite que je pourrais être à Tirana ou Sarandaen train de manger levrek, Koce ou mes favoris soi-disant Barbuns !!!! Je vous recommande vraiment APG comme la meilleure agence immobilière en Albanie. Zenon Chmielewski ........................................ Aby rozpocząć moją długą historię powiem prost , że Albania Property Group jest najlepszą agencją nieruchomości w Albanii. Nie łatwo zacząć, bo mam tak wiele wspomnień z Albanii, gdzie mieszkałem w latach 2001 do 2006. Kiedy wziąłem samolot z Marsylii do Tirany poprzez Zurych po raz pierwszy trząsłem się jak niedogotowane jajko. Lecialem z radoscią i pewnością, bo miałem umowę o pracę w kieszeni ADF (Funduszu Rozwoju Albanii) ale kraj był zupełnie tajemniczy dla mnie. Gdy wylądowałem na lotnisku Rinas, opóźniony przez 7 godzin zrozumiałem izolację tego kraju przez dekady. Terminal na lotnisku przypominał kawałek rozpadającego się hangaru. Policja wszędzie, nie zdziwiło mnie to, bo było jak w moich poprzednich krajach Ghana, Łotwa, Litwa, Białoruś, Rumunia, Turkmenistan, Armenia i kilka innych. Biedny kierowca czekał na mnie. Gdy przeszedłem kontrolę celną ruszyliśmy w "Drogę", która miała więcej dziur niż asfaltu. Nie było prądu, szarośc, padał ulewny deszcz, jak koniec świata, apokalipsa ... ale od samego początku poczułem coś wyjątkowego. Albańczycy !!! Tacy otwarci i gościnni, mówiący w języku angielskim, włoskim, rosyjskim. Zaserwowali mi pierwszy kieliszek domowej Raki więc spałem dobrze. Obudziłem się rano, słońce również i uśmiechy na twarzach. Podziwiam tych ludzi, nawet bedąc Polakiem i wciąż pamiętając trudne chwile w moim kraju. Obraz Albanii jest zły wszędzie, mafia itd ... To jest złe i tworzone jedynie przez media. Wszyscy złi Albańczycy są za granicami. To jest fantastyczny kraj z fantastycznym klimatem. Żyłem nawet w Kukes na granicy z Kosowem. Dość zimno tam, ale bardzo miło w czasie wiosenno-letnim. W tym czasie były tylko 2 drogi do Tirany, jedna spiralna poprzez gory, podziurawiona przez ciezarowki z lat 50-tych, 5, 6 godzin jazdy a druga przez Skoder !!!! Teraz jest tam autostrada z tunelami !!! jak między Nicea i Monte Carlo. Dlatego kupiłem pierwsze mieszkanie w Tiranie na weekendy. Pozniej postanowiłem kupić drugie nad morzem w Saranda. Tuż naprzeciwko Korfou, jeśli chcesz porównać leniwych Greków i pracowity Albańczyków. Wciąż mam mnóstwo przyjaciół. Wracając do moich doświadczeń z APG to było szczęście i wielkie szczęście dla spotkać Ilira konomi. Po powrocie do Francji niestety musiałam pozbyc się moich apartamentow. Widziałem wiele agencji nieruchomosci, ale APG była jedyna naprawdę poważna. W 2007 roku rozpoczał się kryzys w UE i na calym swiecie. Wszędzie rynek nieruchosci się zalam, więc to było bardzo trudne wyzwanie dla Illira. Ilir nigdy nie zrezygnował i dzieki asyście swojego profesjonalnego prawniczego zespolu udało mu się sprzedać moje mieszkanie na warunkach chciałem jakie postawilem. Dał całe swoje serce, aby mi pomóc i nigdy nie wahał się wyslac maila lub zadzwonic zeby mnie zapytać, alb poradzic. Prawdziwy profesjonalista, który pomaga drugiemu bez żadnego zainteresowania dla siebie. Spróbuj znaleźć te same usługi we Francji! Mieszkam w Cagnes-sur-Mer, niedaleko Nicei i teraz mogę zagwarantowac, że agencje interesuje tylko prowizjia i podotknięciu pieniędzy zapominają ze jeszcze isniejesz. Nie tak jak Illir, jest on nadal w kontakcie ze mną, a ja chciałbym być w Tiranie lub Saranda jedzac sobie levreka, Koce lub mojeulubione tzw Barbuns !!!! Naprawdę polecam APG jako najlepsza agencja nieruchomości w Albanii. Zenon Chmielewski

Christen Dale - Norway ★★★★★

Vi hadde hørt og lest mye om «det nye» feriemålet Albania og bestemte oss i Januar 2015 for å reise ned å se på mulighet for kjøp av leilighet i Saranda. Vi kontaktet Albania Property Group og sa hva vi var på utkikk etter. I mars fløy til Tirana og ble møtt på flyplassen av Ilir som tok vel imot oss og innkvarterte oss på et meget bra Hotell for natten før vi neste dag fortsatte til Saranda der Dori hadde planlagt en rekke leiligheter for oss å se på. Etter noen dager fant vi det vi var på jakt etter og kjøpte 2 nye leiligheter i strandkanten innen gå avtstand til sentrum. Alt det praktiske vedrørende dokumenter tok Ilir seg av i samarbeid med advokat vi hadde fått anbefalt i Tirana. Etter kjøp og overtakelse var det tid for innkjøp av Kjøkken og annen innredning. Vi fortalte Juna hos Albania Property Group hva vi så etter og hun ordnet det meste og alt ble gjort via korrespondanse og utveksling av bilder på epost, og til faste forhånds avtalte priser. I juli og august i år tilbrakte vi vår første ferie i ny leilighet i Saranda og gleder oss til å komme tilbake. Alle praktiske spørsmål som dukket opp i ferien fikk vi hjelp med av Arta på APG’s Saranda kontor. Albania Property Group har gjennom hele prosessen opptrådd meget profesjonelt i alle ledd og vi er også meget tilfreds med oppfølging vi har fått etter at kjøpet var gjennomført.
