Romance of Turkey was established in 2001 by husband and wife team, Len and Carol Orford.
The company was based in England at Gatwick with offices and staff in Alanya in the Antalya region of Turkey. The influx of ex pat's buying properties in Turkey created an opportunity for Turkeys first British Estate Agent. Over the period of the next 10 years to 2011, Romance of Turkey, driven by Len, sold over 600 properties. Len and Carol moved to Turkey and bought a property in the area working together with local builders and agents.
At its peak, Romance of Turkey employed 11 staff in Turkey, whilst the British end was controlled by Carol's daughter, Susan. In 2011, due to a world wide property slump world wide, coupled with Len and Carol reaching retirement age, it was decided to wind down operations.
Len and Carol lived and commuted from 2011 to the present day, and continued to assist and sell the odd property through recommends. Len has a superior knowledge of all conveyancing aspects in Turkey, maintaining all his contacts.
During the past year Len has been involved on a private and personal basis in securing Villa rentals in the booming Belek region of Antalya. Phil, who is a proficient IT & marketing expert, was approached by Len to become partner and to jointly re-invent Romance of Turkey under a new Banner. This will
promote, rent & sell Apartments and Villas in this up and coming booming area and offer unrivalled golf packages in one of the best places for golf in the world!
Together Len and Phil are establishing a large portfolio of fabulous properties to rent in this area. We are looking to expand the current total of 25 over time.
