Whilst there a many property agents to choose from on Crete, if you're within a hundred miles of Kalyves, just head there & visit Minoan Property Services!
Maria & George offer a thoroughly professional service - a real 'one-stop shop' - and claim a 100% customer satisfaction rate - and I have no reason to doubt that figure.
Jenny & I have recently moved within the island with the help of this delightful couple and the service we received was impeccable. The English expression: 'above and beyond the call of duty' springs to mind. Entirely apt when applied to Maria & George.
Before we moved to Crete, we looked on several real estate web sites for long term rentals. Minoan Properties was by far the easiest to use, had the most photos, and the best English. It also had the largest selection of places, so we contacted Maria and George via email. Maria sent back a document with numerous questions designed to aid her in finding us exactly what we were looking for. Based on our responses, she put together a short list of properties that fit our criteria, so that when we arrived on the island, we drove to Kalyves to meet with Maria and George, and then went to 4 different properties with George. Within two days of landing, we had found the place for us! Maria and George are amazing; they handled all of the paperwork (even translating birth certificates into Greek!), they are super responsive via email or phone, they speak great English, and they are delightful people!! We have thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Minoan Properties, and have already recommended them to another couple moving to Crete. You can't go wrong with Maria and George!!
Maria is excellent her intuition for getting what you are looking for is spot on.
We are looking for a very specific piece of land in Crete for our new business and Maria took us all over the area we wanted to find it. Its not quite the time yet but when it is I will be calling her.
We purchased a villa from Maria in December last year. We then decided that we would like to have some extensive landscaping work carried out in the garden. Maria recommended a builder to carry out the work and offered to translate to the builder who was spaking only German and Greek . She also agreed to oversee the work and ensured that the project was carried out in the agreed timeline. The result was amazing and totally transformed the garden. Maria is very professional and has an excellent knowledge of reliable workmen in the Kalives area. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Minoan Properties arranged and supervised the complete redecoration of the exterior of our Villa in Kournas recently. Their choice of contractor and supervision was first class.
Their local knowledge of how this project should be done, timing etc helped to make it an great job, on time and on budget. Thanks! Chris & Liz Jones
It is not an easy time to sell a property in Crete we are therefore delighted that this week we completed our sale all thanks to Maria. We have friends with other people who have not been so lucky to sell their homes in a relatively short time like us.Maria is very tenacious and hard working, and even when the task gets tough she never gives up! So thank you so much Maria and George for enabling us to start on our next adventure in life!
Dear Maria and Jiorgos, We like to thank you so much. You have done so many things for us to realise living in the Kalyves area. All the administration in Chania, banking, paperwork. You had so long time patient with us. We could not decide, you were always there when we needed you. Finaly we found a beautiful rental house, for the price we wanted to pay. Everything is fine now. Even after the deal was done, even then you were ready to help us. Many thanks foor all your work. Kisses from Louiza and Peter
Our love for Crete began 25years ago.......
And now, with Maria and his husband our dream in Crete is beggining.
Seriousness, professionalism and friendness.

We have been coming to Crete for many years on holiday, quite a few years back we decided to buy a holiday home.
We decided we wanted to be near Kalyves and embarked upon a journey through the Internet and by chance came across Maria and George.
From the first meeting, we knew we would be well looked after and of course we were right. We are now the proud owners of a beautiful stone house in a beautiful village.
Our journey has just begun in our new life, we are so looking forward to the next chapter of our lives and so are our family.
Don't just dream about the future make it a reality with Minoan Properties, just like we have.
We have recently purchased a villa from Maria at Minoan Properties . Maria is a very professioal lady who gives 100% effort. She is very knowledgeable about the propertiesshe has for sale and is always happy to explain the Greek processes involved in buying a property. We would highly recommend Maria to anyone purchasing a property in Crete
