Meet the Luxury Villa Sales team
Diana Díaz - Office Manager
I am originally from: Colombia
Places I have lived: Colombia(Bogotá), United Kingdom (Cardiff and London) and Spain (Marbella)
Why I chose to live in/what I love about Marbella: Coming from a busy capital like Bogotá, and after living for several years in London, I love the fact that Marbella has a lot of life and some city vibes. Yet without the stress and hecticness of large cities. It has the perfect balance and for me it's quality of life has no parallel in Europe. Marbella is very multicultural yet it preserves it's Spanish warmth and charming character.
What I love about my job: What I love the most is supporting the Luxury Villa Sales team and looking after its wellbeing. I find this a very rewarding part of my role and I believe the success of any company depends on the happiness of its team. There is a lot of movement dealing with the day to day running of an office and this perfectly fits my character. I am a very multi-tasking person with lots of energy and running the Marbella LVS office makes great use of these qualities.
What I enjoy doing when not at work: Spending time outdoors in nature is the perfect plan for me. Either at the beach or in the countryside. I find it relaxing and energising. Living here in Marbella we are privileged to be able to choose between a wide variety of nature-related activities. Either a walk on Marbella´s beach promenade with my family, with friends having a picnic in the countryside or relaxing by myself reading a book at the beach. The Marbella area offers countless great opportunities.
Interesting fact about me: I am super curious about many topics but one of them is nutrition. I LOVE desserts and I have a passion for cooking creative-healthy desserts to calm my sweet cravings without the bad additives and refined sugar the food industry offers at the moment. Marbella has plenty of organic farmers markets with fresh local produce I like to use in my creations.

Paul Bell - IT Manager
I am originally from: England
Places I have lived: England and here in sunny Marbella, Spain
Why I chose to live in/what I love about Marbella: I moved here for quality of life back in 2005 with two young daughters. It is a great place to bring up a family. I wanted my daughters to experience another culture, living a healthy outdoor lifestyle away from hand held devices. In a place where they could make friends from all over the world and learn a second language. Spain is a very family centric culture and children are welcome everywhere you go. Of course the fact the sun shines over 320 days a year and the earliest it gets dark in the winter months is 6 pm helped!
What I love about my job: I love informing others about what is so great about Marbella. Producing exciting marketing content, great videos and websites representing spectacular Marbella area properties. Also learning new technologies and using these to reach potential global buyers.
What I enjoy doing when not at work: I love the outdoor Mediterranean lifestyle. Kayaking and paddle boarding on the Mediterranean. Hiking and cycling in spectacular Andalucian scenery. I am also a motorcycle and car fanatic. Spain is a heaven for 'petrolheads' with spectacular empty roads. There are so many great places to visit and explore.
Interesting fact about me: I guess proof of my hobbies. I cycled across Spain from the north to the south coast in 12 days. Along with a friend I drove a Ferrari in the famous 4 day Mille Miglia race in Italy. We drove the race car from Nottingham in the UK to Rome and back as part of the same adventure.

As someone who has had generally bad experiences with Estate Agents in Marbella and who hasn’t been shy about saying so, I would like to recognise the superb job LVS did for me in selling our Villa recently.
I chose LVS because of the people who work there, I’d like to name David Honeyman in particular as the most knowledgeable and reassuring individual, his meticulous attention to detail combined with the excellent marketing and constant feedback were a pleasant surprise and exceeded my expectations in every way.
All I would like to say to LVS is thanks for doing the job, keep up the good work and I hope this review brings more fortunate buyers and sellers to your door.”
Carin is never pushy and never oversells. Still, she is firm in her advice. Her property knowledge is great as well. Carin also responds to any questions or concerns quickly.
I find that Carin genuinely believes that the most important thing is that we find the right property for us. She genuinely puts me as the buyer first. I value that so much in an Agent.
I can highly recommend Carin as your preferred and trusted agent in the Marbella market.”
