Hello!

I suppose I am the craziest buyer of property!! I was in Egypt only once! I have always been attracted by the sea-side, sun-shine, palm-trees, so my daughter and I kick-started to Africa, having left my little twin-sons, six months old, to my Mom’s care. That was a dream!!! Absolute summer in late November when in Denmark it started spitting with snow and in my homeland, in Estonia, the snowdrifts were so big that they prevented the front door from opening and the snowfalls caused power cuts! Then I decided to come to Hurgada every winter.
Apart from the sunshine, sea and palm-trees, I felt the wonder-working climate of Egypt on my own experience. After severe twin-pregnancy with late toxicosis I gained 55 kg (together with the boys, 4 kg each at birth) and suffered from swellings, indigestion, deep depression, and other nasties. Next day after my arrival, my organism set upon a daily regimen, depression faded out as the melting Danish snow, and I started to LIVE. Coming home was a kind of check test for my reaction to climate changes: my infirmities returned (that moment I remembered my dear Mom with all her headaches, arthritis and other diseases of aging – wouldn’t it be great if she comes there!). Here I would like to note that Egyptian remedies work like magic – I brought her a whole bagful of them!! Of course, during my holiday, I didn’t think about buying a property: I myself lived in a rented flat - no way! ;) However, while visiting an Egyptian hairdresser, who complained on his hard life and small (!!) tips, I knew how much he paid for his rented studio. Then, while waiting for a massage therapist, I met the owner of the beauty salon, who boasted on a house which he built for his mother and the lodging apartments which he was buying for tourists. “He is rich.” – I thought. “Or a big liar”!! I asked how much the apartments were. 100,000 LE to buy that will be paid out during the apartment leasing. I thought he was definitely lying! Then I forgot it and returned to safari and Paradise Islands. We had rest and happily returned home. And here we go: I want back to Egypt, forever!! I searched for “cheap studios and apartments” on the web and came across Akar Real Estate offers. I remembered that talkative Arab and decided to check out his words…he was telling the truth! The prices were real and the instalment plan was interest-free – the conditions that a single parent may only imagine... I started to enquire into this question, reading discussion boards, advertisements, and, of course, checking reputations of the agencies ;) I was pretty lucky– Akar was the first agency I came across and, judging from the comments, they were reliable!! I also liked their offer of the remote purchase as I was afraid that I would have to fly to Africa for every single paper!! And I liked their soft-sell policy: I sent a letter with my enquiry and received a direct response without any touting (I even was disappointed: there was

 no any argument as I expected). So I debated that question in my mind until I came across the “Special Offer” topic. In Estonia, where I grew up, this action is not widespread. So, first I didn’t expect much when I was reading: “Congratulations on the Women’s Day. Ladies are granted a special offer”. However, they were exactly those 5% of the discount that I needed to afford buying an apartment!! And 3 days till the end of the campaign! Oh, MOOOMMY, happy holiday! The keys will be ours only a year on, though :D It took me only 2 hours of chatting in skype with Anastasia (a woman of great patience!!!). I really got to her asking different silly questions like the width of the corridor! But it was fun. I sent her a reserve amount and the studio was ours!! I am pleased as a dog with two tails but my Mom still uses sedatives. Thank you, Akar!! Thank you, Anastasia!! I owe you a present when I come to Egypt :))) By the way, there is another special offer effective till the year end: An air conditioner to a young mother (why young? Because she has small kids ;) I wonder if I could have two items for my twins ;)). So, go ahead, guys!!
