The company was founded in the early seventies covering the Marbella area and specifically Puerto Banus. At that time, the area was undergoing a great deal of change, with entrepreneurs from all over the world keen to open businesses, all of whom shared great enthusiasm in the development of the area.
In those early days, two young entrepreneurs arrived in the area and decided to join forces in order to create a Real Estate Agency with an International flavor to meet the increased demand of visitors who enjoyed the culture and climate of the region and who wanted to buy a property, either as a holiday or retirement home.
These men were Ninian Crichton-Stuart Montgomerie and Robert Germaux. Ninian was Scottish and fell in love with the Costa del Sol and particularly the Marbella area having moved from the Balearic Islands (Menorca) where he had lived for several years before deciding to make Guadalmina his permanent home. He developed a unique management style which we are proud to maintain to this day.
His partner, Robert who was born in Belgium shared Ninian's enthusiasm for the area and also wanted to settle in the Puerto Banus area. Today, he lives in Benahavis and is totally integrated in local life and very well known and respected.
The company they established was originally called Donaldsons (a branch of the well-known Company in the UK) and later was re-named Galvez-Cañero Real Estate. Galvez-Cañero has enjoyed working with many top UK based Real Estate Agents including Donaldsons, Chestertons and Montpellier International Properties.
Sadly Ninian died in 1994 and Robert decided to leave the Agency to pursue other opportunities. The two top Sales Managers, Consuelo Nuñez and Jose Galiano took over the running of the Company at this time and despite the recent difficulties in the Real Estate Sector in Spain, Galvez Cañero is still proud to be known as one of the most prestigious Agents in the area.
Recently Jose Galiano left the company and it is now being run by Consuelo Nuñez who is undertaking this new phase with the enthusiasm of a novice but with the experience she has accumulated from having been in the business for over 30 years. Consuelo has recently restructured the business and is recruiting new staff. Galvez Cañero now consists of a Rental Department and Property Management Department as well as continuing to collaborate with Servihabitat and the Caixabank Group with regard to the handling of reposessions. A new website has been created to complement advertising in the media. This is all with a view to increasing Galvez Cañero's overall market share in the area.
Galvez Cañero's aim is to refine and improve Customer relations. The staff are highly knowledgeable and have the experience to offer advice to their Client's to ensure that all their property needs are met. They will work closely with the Client whilst being completely discreet.
