WHO DO WE HELP

We have advised and assisted hundreds of people who were seeking property and investment advice and those requiring local information in The Mediterranean. We are always proud to introduce new customers to our existing customers and partners who have experienced our service and who, we are confident, will provide excellent testimony that we are are a company that deliver what we promise.

We employ and train in house staff to ensure that we achieve our aim of maximum customer satisfaction and a safe way to move to The Mediterranean.

Our multi-lingual staff are provided for you to make your decisions based on facts and wide unbiased choice and not only on emotions.

Our customers and partners will testify that we do not pressure or persuade.

Buying or committing abroad is a big decision and you need time to digest information. We say Take your time, Take our time.

Vision Group assist the following groups of people :-

1. SECOND HOME AND PERMANENT OWNER OCCUPIER BUYERS.

All Vision Group customers buy property for different personal reasons. Many buy for their own use for holidays and/or retirement. Some buy for part occupation and part rental, perhaps to cover their service charge and other such costs.

Once we have analysed our clients’ needs, desires and budget, we explore the right property and finance to suit.

Apart from physically showing you all the relevant properties, we also share with you information on Prices, Rentals with Analytics and trends so that you can fully understand what it is you are investing into. We also share with you how to manage your investment, obtain tenants and achieve maximum rental and returns.

We provide private and group consultation within our various Discovery Tours in The Mediterranean. (Click to Tours link).

Although we are always happy to advise over the phone, we always recommend visiting our offices for relaxed, non-pressured advice and close proximity to the properties available.

Please apply to [email protected] to book your complimentary tour or make an appointment for a telephone consultation.

We fully respect that any buyer committing to what is a large investment, must go through a process of understanding and digesting a lot of important information.

This is why we say - “Take your time, Take our time”.

2. INVESTORS

Property investment in foreign markets is a science based on analytical research and knowledge. We focus on The Mediterranean as in the last few years we see much higher returns both in rentals and capital growth compared to the established countries and cities of the world.

OUR HISTORY

Vision Group (formerly IPP The International Partnership Program) was originally created by the founder and current Chairman Stephan Menzies MRICS. Stephan achieved his degree at Westminster University (Law and Property) and is a member of the UK based but worldwide Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. Prior to his international property activities he practised as a Chartered Surveyor in The City of London.

He is also an investor and shareholder of property companies that have undertaken and retained projects including shopping centres, student accommodation, offices and residential projects.

Besides his ongoing interests in his UK companies, he has made substantial personal investments overseas and has a deep love of The Mediterranean lifestyle, culture and of course property markets. Development, investment and property economics is at the core of his business interests.

During his capacity as advisor to the UK national housebuilding sector his company procured and secured land for more than 12,000 homes.

He later turned his attention to international markets acting as developer and investor in other European countries. He founded London and Cyprus Homes in Cyprus and built top quality housing projects including Cyprus Hills Mountain Village, a super luxurious and award winning mountain village of grand, traditional villas.

Whilst developing homes in the sun, Stephan recognised that overseas buyers, with little local knowledge, are vulnerable when buying abroad. Together with Alexandra Kononova (former London and Cyprus Homes sales manager, since 2009 and now Vision Groups Property Director) Stephan formed British Property Consultants (BPC) and Scandinavian Property Consultants (SPC), based in North Cyprus, to provide property consulting and estate agency services for the overseas market.

Alex also co founded IPP in early 2014 to commence the network business to increase the company’s customer finding abilities. IPP was the first company to create a platform for providing a real estate business opportunity for people from all walks of life.

Alex was educated at The Minsk State Linguistics University (Belarus) and qualified as a Teacher of English Language and Literature. She also qualified as a Teacher of German Language (BA) and Germanic Languages (MA). Alex subsequently achieved her Masters Degree (MBA) in International Business Management at The Girne American University (Cyprus).

Alex has as a very comprehensive knowledge of the property market in North Cyprus. Her experience has been gained from tourism, agency and many years active in the property sector. Our overseas clients always appreciate her comprehensive knowledge and her diligent and professional approach to serving their property needs and requirements.

Alex created the Gold Star Selection process which is a scoring system she applies to the property selection for the Vision Group property portfolio. She maintains this portfolio and ensures that we carry all the best and latest property available for sale.

Alex trained and grew a team of professional staff to serve a substantial international market of buyers seeking a home and/or investment in North Cyprus.

The company subsequently added Spain to its portfolio and consulting services with the appointment of Martin Ducos.

After a long experience in sales and customer care, Martin moved to Spain in 2005 and discovered his natural skills for real estate agency. He spent 2 years at Oliva Nova (Spanish developer) and then joined Grupo Garcia and grew his reputation with clients and developers as a highly dependable estate agent and buyer consultant. He was subsequently appointed as Property Director for Vision Group Spain.

In March 2018 we made the decision that our brand image did not completely match our operations. It became very clear that we might be perceived by the public purely as a company with operations similar to the many successful “MLM” businesses of the world that distribute relatively “small cost” products such as health, fitness, beauty and aesthetics.

We have identified that our image should reflect a wider spectrum of activities and we should be recognised first for our professional service to buyers and for our educational platform.

We passionately wanted a brand that truly and clearly conveys the fundamental characteristics and core beliefs of our company. After taking advice from international advertising and marketing companies, we have incorporated these characteristics in the new image and thus the Vision Group brand has been created.

Vision Group has become recognised as a conscientious and diligent company serving anyone with property interest in Spain and North Cyprus.

Today we have over 30,000 properties for sale and we have gained respect and recognition not only from customers but also the leading developers in both Spain and North Cyprus.

The company plans to continue to open in the most popular Mediterranean countries.
