|High level of professionalism. Good advice and higly efficient as far as the read tape is concerned. After them having arranged everything for me, I went on a viewing trip to Bulgaria to realise that all the guidance provided could have not been more accurate to the reality. A big thaks to Amanda and Douglas, the structural enginner, for all the good advice and the good laugh in the trip!!Will definitely recommend you. |

|Before I made my purchase with Biodar I had asked Amanda for the exact location of the development. The reason being that I had already been out to Bulgaria on an inspection trip with another agent.You guessed it the develpoment was miles away and further inland than expected. Within a very short time Amanda came back to me with the details including Km's from Sunny Beach. I made my purchase and recently went out to take alook around Sunny Beach and Nessbar. I visited the location of my purchase and sure enough it was exactly were Amanda had said it was. Thank you Amanda. First Class. |

|This will be my second investment in Bulgaria, having used a different agent for my first purchase. I was recommended to Amanda by a colleague, who could not speak highly enough about the professional service she had provided. I can now reciprocate his comments. Both Amanda and Carmen have provided a very proffessional and personal service, making the whole buying process a pleasurable experience. |

|This is my 1st overseas investment and with that elements of doubt of course arise. I need not have worried, as from the very start Amanda has provided a personal and extremely professional service. The manner in which all my enquiries have been dealt with have been has been second to none. The local knowledge, legal expertise and a genuine passion to ensure client satisfaction from Biodar and Amanda, in my opinion could not be better. |

|We can't speak highly enough of Amanda and Carmen for all their very professional help enabling us to purchase our apartment in Pamprova. We would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of investing in property and very reassuring to be able to contact them anytime you need a question answered. We are very much looking forward to going out to visit our apartment upon completion. Our very grateful thanks to Amanda for all her help and we look forward to purchasing more properties through Biodar in the future.|

|We have purchased appartments in Pamporovo and have found that the contact with amanda has been invalueable she has extensive knowledge of the area and we are able to get regular updates on progression due to her regular visits to Bulgaria. Carmen is very helpful and has answered many queries with the same efficiency as Amanda. The DVD's she has made brought everything alive and given us confidence in the properties we are purchasing.|

|I have just exchanged on an apartment in Pamporovo, and would recommend using Biodar 100%.|
Amanda's legal expertise saved me plenty of time and money. They have always been totally professional and are contactable all hours of the day and night.
As for Carmen, she's very efficient and sounds like a right babe on the phone -

|We have purchased an apartment in the Panorama complex in Stoikite last May and visited the site in February this year. It was such a relief to find that the complex is in such a beautiful position with unspoilt views from all directions, it is so difficult to know when you buy from a computer generated picture. We have visited Pamporovo 4 times and really love the area and find it to be a very welcoming village with plenty to do. The slopes have been upgraded and although there has been more development in the area since the first time we visited it has been done well and there are no awful eyesores. We are going back in July to get a taste of Bulgaria in the summer and have been told it is very beautiful. We chose Biodar for our purchase as they were the one's marketing the property and initally dealt with Albena who was very helpful and always responded to our enquiries. We have since made contact with Amanda and will contact her from now on as she is in this country and more accessible. If anyone wishes to contact us please don't hesitate to do so. Jill and Frank|

|I came across Biodar through an advertisement in one of the national news papers, i phoned and have spoken to Amanda and Karman on numerous accasions they were both extremely helpfull.|
I was suprised that they had there own in house lawyer, this was very comforting, i have not as yet made a purchase but will be doing so in the near future. In the past i have spoken to atleast 20 different agents in england none of which have been as helpfull as Karman and Amanda.
Amanda has offered to travel 2 hours to meet me i found the service provided friendly proffessional and very comforting.
From my exstensive research Biodar is the most honist company i have ever come across.
If you are thinking of purchasing property in Bulgaria this company i can highly recomend.
This is most deffinately a five star company!.

|My financial adviser and i had a discussion regarding future investments.|
I already have a large property portfolio but thought i would exspand and start a bullgarian portfolio this seems the coolest thing at the moment. I was told to contact Amanda as i have invested with her in the past in england. She has put me on the right track and when she has found me a large development i will be going ahead, Karman and Amanda are cool, cool, cool (wow female body guards). They are personally going to acompany me to bulgaria in the near future when i finish my tour. I can telephone them when everyone else is sleeping and they are always pleased to hear from me. These are great girls and i thank them.

|Having purchased a property in the Panorama complex I had a number of issues and concerns regarding the purchase having not visited the area myself. After contacting Amanda at Biodar I was instantly put at ease as she explained the full process and the pitfalls to look out for. In addition to this Amanda has provided us with a short CD which gave a great insight into the property and the surrounding area.|
We cannot thank Amanda enough for her help and advice.

|I had been thinking about buying abroad for some time but have always found reasons for not persuing, Legal, don't know the system, horror stories etc.etc. I eventually decided to take some action and am so grateful that I found Biodar. Amanda has been fantastic (and still is). If I can't get hold of her straight away by phone she always calls back that same day - I don't know when she finds time to relax, but it is very comforting for me. |
I think I have made the right decision in buying an apartment in the Panorama complex, Stoikite (Pamporovo) but I know I have made the right decision buying through Biodar.
9th March 2006
|I was interested in investing property in Bulgaria and seached the web and made a call to Amanda in the UK from Biodar, we talked at length, Amanda was very informative and helpfull, she was friendly but proffesional and she gave me confidence to buy not one but four appartments. i think that the seven day office hours and long hours are benificial to the prospective purchaser. I would recommend that anyone thinking of purchasing property in Bulgaria to contact Amanda|

|We are in the process, pending inspection viewing, of purchasing an|
apartment in Pamporovo. Purchasing properties abroad can be very
daunting, especially for 1st timers!, but Amanda has made it all a lot
She is always willing to answer our questions, no matter what the time!
In fact, I have bombarded her with emails, to which she always promptly
replyes to - even at 1.30am!!
Amanda is very approachable and has gone to great lengths to meet all
I would recommend Amanda to anyone thinking of buying a property in

|Recently decided to look at a purchase in Bulgaria. Searched lots of websites and spoke to various people about it. I came accross Biodars website and made a phone call, and spoke to AMANDA. She was a great help, always making contact regarding every stage of the process. AMANDA has guided myself nad my brother-in-law through the maze that is foreign property purchase wonderfully. I have already reccommended her to other friends of mine, and I would not hesitate in reccommending AMANDA again. |
Thanks AMANDA for everything.
16th January 2006
|This is my first purchase abroad and could not have found a better UK agent than Amanda to guide me and my wife through the buying process.|
Although this is early days in my purchase i am glad i have Amanda on the other end of the telphone should i get any queries or problems.
A true professional thank you.
16th January 2006
|I can't thank Amanda enough, i spoke to many other Uk agents and there was no personal touch and i could not get hold of anyone after office hours, i then found Biodar on New Years day, i called expecting to hear an answer message, but no i got Amanda on the phone and i spoke at length, i have called her at 10pm on Sundays, she is always there to help seven days per week, she works very long hours and is simply the best. Wow finally a company with a personal touch and very proffesional, late office hours. What more can i say, i will recomend Amanda at Biodar to all my collegues, she really is a breath of fresh air. Biodar you really have got it right. I am going to use Biodar for sure for all my Bulgarian property purchases. Amanda will be the sales woman of the year, this i am sure of. Biodar is by far the best UK company selling property in Bulgaria. Thank-you Amanda you are simply the best.|
16th January 2006
|Some months ago I searched the Internet for property in Sofia, Bulgaria and came across the Biodar website which I found to be very informative. I chose an apartment and called the Biodar office and asked many questions regarding the purchase. Prior to this, I asked similar questions to other agencies regarding purchase,but I found Biodar to be by far the best from the rest. I strongly recommend Biodar to any potential purchaser who wishes to receive the best advise on the procedures of buying property in Bulgaria on the internet, and especially to AMANDA from Biodar, who strives relentlessly and tirelessly to provide a personal touch and give the best possible advice and ensure a 100% satisfaction rate. Her friendly voice and polite manner on the telephone is always a pleasure to be acquainted with. |
2nd January 2006
|We,that is my wife and I first met Ilia in November 2004 after contacting their email and arranging to go and look at properties, our first impression was of a very rundown country and my wife asked what on earth are we doing here and I had no answer.|
Then Ilia took us on a fantastic journey around Bulgaria and gave us a History lesson as well,we were overwhelmed with the beauty of the country and the friendliness of the people. We have now bought three properties through Biodar and can only say that they have gone from being agents selling properties to Friends that we respect very deeply. Our properties are in the Pazardjick and Samakov areas but are now looking at other areas including their developement near Varna.Anyone wishing to ask questions is more than welcome to contact us via email or telephone Best regards Denver and Patricia Newhill

|WE BOUGHT FROM BIODAR ABOUT 18MONTHS AGO BUT WOULD JUST LIKE TO ADD A COUPLE OF INFORMATIVE COMMENTS WHICH MAY HELP OTHERS! WE HAVE JUST DISCOVERED THAT AS UK CITIZENS WE ARE ONLY SUPPOSED TO VISIT BULGARIA FOR A MAXIMUM OF 30 DAYS IN A SIX MONTH PERIOD THEREAFTER WE NEED A VISA - CURRENTLY TRYING TO FIND OUT WHEN EACH PERIOD BEGINS AND APPARENTLY THERE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A GAP IN BETWEEN VISITS BUT WE ARE YET TO FIND OUT ABOUT THIS - AND THE OTHER THING WE HAVE LEARNED - IF YOU ENTER BULGARIA BY CAR YOU MUST LEAVE BY CAR OR THE CAR MUST STAY UNDER CUSTOMS CONTROL IN BULGARIA UNTIL YOU RETURN YOU CANNOT LEAVE CAR AT YOUR HOUSE EVEN IF GREEN CARD AND ROAD TAX (BULGARIAN) ARE CURRENT. WE HAVE LEARNED THESE LESSONS TO OUR COST HAVING BEEN REFUSED PERMISSION TO FLY AT PASSPORT CONTROL SO THE AUTHORITIES DO ENFORCE THESE RULES!!|

|If you are looking for an excellent company that looks after you right through the viewing and purchase process, look no further. Ilia and Margarita were always there to help and deal with any concerns I had. You get a genuine feeling that they are not just after your money, something that I found personally very reassuring . I purchased a lovely property near the town of Dolna Banja thanks to Illia & Margarita. Thanks very much for your help and continuing support.|

|We have recently bought a studio in Sunny Beach, with the help of Ivo from |
Biodar, with whom could not have done without. Ivo was most helpful and
knew exactly what we were looking for. He helped us with the translations
and getting our queries across to the sellers and made the whole process
We would have no hesitation in recommending Ivo and Biodar to anyone, and
have in fact already passed details on to family and friends as we were so
impressed with the service we received.
15th September 2004
|I would like to share some thoughts based on a comparisation of different agencies since if you have had experience only with Biodar you might not even know how others work. :)|
One year ago (2003 Sept) I went to Sunny Beach with the purpose of buying an apartment in a complex and rent it out. I arranged appointments with two agencies - including Biodar - I found both of them on Internet. Before I went to Bulgaria I agreed with the agencies what complexes I was going to visit and also the sq. meter prices was discussed in advance. I was facing two quite different services in terms of quality.
Agency number one:
First of all I needed to pay some money just for visiting the possible properties I was interested in. This agency sent someone to me who was not even prepared what properties we were going to visit - once we managed to clearify over the agent´s mobile phone with the real agent they immediately said that their prices jumped up around 10% comparing to what we discussed 5 days before my Bulgarian visit. I know that the prices in Bulgaria are growing fast but really that fast!?
Anyway, I decided to check the locations - but we could finally visit only two of them and out of these two only one was what I really wanted to visit - the others were not accessible for some reasons. I had the feeling that they really did not care about anything but only getting quickly the fee for the visits and that is all.
Ivo came to pick me at the hotel - he was prepered already with the list of the properties we agreed earlier to visit plus some more that he thought would match to my interest and my budget. He was detachedly describing the advantages/disadvantages of all the visited properties - giving me better chance choosing the best apartment fitted to my expectations. Since I was planning to let the apartment out he offered his help for furnishing it and for managing the rental procedure in the future.
During my stay on the Sunny Beach I found few complexes that were being advertised directly by the constructor but I faced few problems. The biggest one is that in this case you got service from no one of getting through the whole purchase procedure. Furthermore, at least those constructors I talked to were not prepared to arrange the furnishing not to mention the property rental later. Other thing is that few of them speak no foreign languages.
At the end of my one week stay I chose the apartment that I found very attractive to me but during this one week one of you English guys took it away from me! :(( :)
I am still planning to buy an apartment in Bulgaria and I am going to use Biodar because of the trust in them and the above mentiond experiences. I am still in touch with Ivo since then and he is always helpful giving me more info about properties that are new on their website.
I have had experience of purchasing property abroad and one thing what I had to realise is that once you bought the property you need always someone local you can personally rely on even after the purchase because of whatever issue you might come across regarding to your property what needs to be managed quickly.
5th September 2004
|My friend and have recently purchased apartments through Biodar real estate. We found Ivo the agent very helpful. When you are buying property abroad you need to feel you can trust the people you are dealing with. From the first meeting with our agent he was very helpful giving good advise and genuinely acting for the customers best interest. Ivo also helped out with furnishings and air con he spent time takeing us around the shops advising on best value and translating our requirements. Even after completion of services from Biodar we remain in contact and have received help and advice when requested. From our experience we would highly recommend Biodar real estate. |

|In January 2004, my husband viewed various properties with Ilia and Margarita. His viewing trips with them resulted in a purchase of house in Tryavna, unfortunately we were unable to get out and complete the purchase ourselves. Margarita did all the hard work for us and we can't believe how easy and stress free the whole process has been. Ilia and Margarita were extremely helpful and friendly, thankyou so much for all your help.|

|i travelled to Sunny beach in 2003 with the intention of buying a house - i ended up buying 2 apartments! |
I bought one in Ravda from Ivo@Biodar and must say the whole process was reasonbly straight forward, i would almost say it was easier than purchasing in the UK/Ireland. He was ever willing to help and i intend to visit in mid June to hopefully arrange with Ivo the furnishing of both apartments - i will let you know my update on my return!
5th May 2004
|There's no escaping the fact that buying a place in Bulgaria depends on a certain amount of boldness, and a partner in the country to trust. You can trust Ivo and Biodar, the other is up to you.|
Biodar have been friendly and professional all the way. I don't hesitate in recommending their services.

|As well as being a very professional service I have also found Biodar makes looking and buying property in Bulgaria interesting and good fun.|
In september 2003 I visited bulgaria for a holiday with no intention of buying a property. I was so impressed with what I found that I contacted Biodar by phone and was quickly contacted by Ivo who was able to shgow me round a wide range of properties and explain all the issues linked with buying in Bulgaria. Nothing was too much trouble.
It has resulted in my buying a property due to be completed shortly. The service that Ivo gave did not stop with the purchase he has updated me on the progress of work and helped with the furnishing and plans to visit to complete the final signing of the contract and handing over of the property.
I am delighted that the service for managing the property has now been started and I shall look forward to making use of this service also.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the service that Ivo has provided on behalf of biodar.
28th April 2004
|We bought a property in Ravda near Nessebar(www.ravda-apartment-bulgaria.co.uk) and I am very happy with the service received from Biodar and in particular from Ivo. He went out of his way to help me during the buying process and during one visit Ivo took me to furniture shops, organised a kitchen supplier, came to the notary etc and made the whole process very easy.|
I have spoken to other people who did not use Biodar and they have had all sorts of problems.
I would highly recommend them.
Well done Biodar and thanks again Ivo!
18th April 2004
|I purchased an appartment Through Biodar in August 2003 in Ravda, and found Ivo their representative to be honest,reliable and always available to answer any questions or queries. he helped the process of buying in Bulgaria be a lot less hassle than I imagined, from the legal side right through to helping to reccomend furniture installers,where to buy fixtures and fittings and acting as a translater.|
I still keep in touch with Ivo and look forward to meeting with him in sunny beach shortly.
18th April 2004
|Biodar, a superb real estate agency, I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to purchase property in Bulgaria, especially Ivo, the agent I dealt with.|
When I went over last year I'd arranged appointments with several estate agents, one never even showed up, another had no properties to show me, Ivo picked me up at the hotel, and showed me many properties in St Vlas, Ravda, Sunny Beach, Varna and Nessebar, overall his personal service was excellent, I ended up buying an appartment overlooking the sea in Ravda, and having bought houses in both the UK and the Netherlands this process was so simple and quick.
To sum up, friendly, quick and easy, and compared to others their fees are much lower, Ivo still keeps in touch and if I have any issues he's always willing to help, I look forward to seeing him again when I go over in a few months.
16th April 2004
|We purchased a property near sofia from biodar in feb 2004. We were introduced to them by a uk company. We found ilia & margarita very helpful in our search for property, they pulled out all the stops to find us the right house. They contacted other partners that they deal with until they found the house we finally purchased. We would recommend using biodar to anyone thinking of buying in bulgaria. |

|I would have no hesitation in recommending Biodar to anyone interested in buying a property in Bulgaria.From the initial e-mails, to actually visiting the country ,being shown properties and securing the property for us ,Ivo has gone beyond all expectations.|
Ivo and Biodar have proved to be totally honest and trustworthy.Even after the sale Ivo has taken a keen interest in providing us with reliable tradesmen who have fitted all our furniture and has kept us informed along the way. We still cant believe how stress-free the whole transaction has been.
Well done Ivo and Biodar.
