David and Cornelia, Switzerland, February 2019
My wife and I have thoroughly appreciated the time and contact that we have had with Gloria and her team. We were clear at the outset that we had Cyprus on a list of countries to visit before making any purchase or relocation decisions. Inspite of this, we had a full day with Gloria viewing a range of properties and benefiting from her long experience of Cyprus and especially the Paphos area. Cyprus is still on our list! We will certainly go back again to Paphos Properties at the appropriate time.

My fiancee has already written a review about the hard work and good service that Gloria provided during our recent purchase in Cyprus.
The process of buying a property is stressful at the best of times and this can be vastly increased abroad,
The buying process was made easy with Gloria's help and guidance. She ensured he had the right documents and took him to where he he needed to be.
I personally witnessed Gloria's professional and attentive aftercare service when we both arrived to take possession of the property.
She picked us both up and then ensured we knew where we were going in preparation for our required visit the various utility companies.
Not only did she ensure that we were going to the right place (unfortunately some of the locations on the internet were different!!!). But she actually collected us and then took us to the utility buildings.
She remained with us to ensure the process was as smooth as possible.
My personal experience with Gloria fully supports the review that my fiancee gave. We truly hope that apart from all of the professional help and advice that Gloria has given that we have made a real friend.
I can't praise Gloria any more and thoroughly recommend that you seek her help as she will genuinely listen to your requirements and will not try to push a property on you that you weren't interested in.
Karen & James, February 2018
Having chosen Peyia as the place we wanted to buy a new holiday/forever home we trawled through many properties and estate agents in Peyia, Paphos via Rightmove. We chose a select few that we looked at over a period of 4 days (the amount of time we allotted to ourselves to find our dream property). We met with several agents but when Gloria came to collect us from our rental apartment, we had an instant rapport with her (discovering that she has a home in the UK only 6 miles from us!) Gloria was very knowledgeable of the local area (having spent over 30 years there herself) and took us to see several suitable properties as per our specification. We did indeed find our dream home on the day before we came home and Gloria managed to negotiate a great price on our behalf and also got us to a solicitor the next morning before our flight home where everything was sorted within an hour. It was an amazing experience. Gloria is very approachable, down to earth, helpful and friendly and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
Len & Kathy Davey, February 2018
Having had a property in Paphos for many years we were aware of Gloria and her reputation as an outstanding property consultant for the area. When we decided to put our apartment on the market in November we had no hesitation of opting for Gloria as sole agent for us. We had heard so many stories over the years about the local estate agents and that is something that we only wanted to consider as a last resort. Our whole involvement with Gloria from the initial meeting right through to meeting solicitors and being chauffeured back to the airport was nothing but a pleasure. She is a lovely lady , who goes about her business in a professional, friendly, personal way and is a joy to work with. We have seen many lovely testaments to her on her website and it just shows what a genuine person she is. I almost forgot to mention that we put the property on the market expecting a long protracted wait for a sale and Gloria sold it within ten weeks. We cannot praise or thank her enough.
Michael Cooper, January 2018
I did a lot of research prior to embarking upon the adventure of buying in Cyprus.
The reviews I had read were were 100% accurate around the service provided by Gloria.
She gave me the good advice to bring relevant documents with me in the eventuality that I found something during my trip, these documents would expedite both the purchase of the property and setting up of the necessary bank account in Cyprus.
Gloria immediately sets you at ease, there is no hard sell and she makes you feel that she is working to get the best for both parties.
Past experience has made me wary about estate agents, solicitors and associate professions. She was able to remove all this.
This is down to her genuine caring nature and I truly hope that I've now gained a new friend. - michael
John and April Cronk, December 2017
We were put in touch with Gloria having tried other companies to try and sell our apartment in Paphos. We live in the UK so were unable to act on a regular basis for ourselves. The apartment had been on the market for 10 years with out any success. Enter Gloria, all change.
We had instant response and all due to Gloria's personal and caring assistance. She put us in touch with the right people to get repairs carried out that were required and to get the place clean, carried out an inventory of the contents that were to be included in the sale and kept in regular contact with us so that we knew what was happening and carried our regular checks on the property up until the time of completion.
We cannot thank Gloria enough for the excellent service and would willingly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell a property in Cyprus.
We received excellent service even when things went wrong. Gloria is fantastic and goes way beyond anything we have ever experienced from an estate agent in more than 40 years.
Sharon and Graham Bell, September 2017
Sharon and I would like to thank you wholeheartedly for the assistance you have given us these past months. You have gone above and beyond your obligations to us. We are sure things would not have gone as smoothly or as quickly in the hands of anyone else.
Nick Crocket, April 2017
I was recommended to Gloria by a solicitor that I was in contact with, both were fantastic. What I really love about buying through Gloria is the no pressure sales attitude. I remember saying goodbye after viewing several flats for the second time and being told, give me a ring if you're interested in any of the properties. I did, bought it and it's one of the best things I have done! I would definitely use Cyprus Property services again, it was a great experience.
Bill Davis, January 2017
What a treasure Gloria is, when we came to Cyprus in search of an apartment we had several dealings with other property sale's reps from other company's, feeling pressurised and under all sorts of forceful salesmanship, but when we met Gloria, she instantly put us at ease, I can't praise her enough for all the help she gave us, and even now still helping us even though she don't have to, She is a very caring and thoughtful person and i advise anybody looking to purchase property in Cyprus is to go through her company.
Sandy Wells, January 2017
I have been visiting family and friends in Cyprus for over fifteen years, and was introduced to Gloria of CYPRUS PROPERTY SERVICES LTD by friends.
Gloria more than lived up to her reputation. I had firm thoughts on what type of second home I was looking for, and where. She did not waste my time showing me unsuitable properties and consequently we found my property quickly. She dealt professionally and promptly with the vendor on my behalf and liaised with our mutual solicitor. I am happy to say that my purchase was completed in one day with no problems ? something that would never happen in the UK.
After the purchase had been completed she arranged for the property to be cleared as I did not want most of the furniture ? but she remained in contact with me to be completely sure of what was to go or stay. She is constantly cheerful, friendly and helpful; Furthermore Gloria stays in contact even after the purchase has been completed, and is more like a friend than an agent.
Alan Wild, January 2017
We would highly recommend Cyprus Property Services Ltd. The service we received from Gloria the MD, from start to finish was excellent and her knowledge of the Paphos Area was ?Second to None??. It only took us a few days to find our ?Dream Apartment? and the sale was legally completed, Bank Account opened, all Utilities transferred over etc. in 9 days.
Lisa & Martyn Shadbolt, March 2016
Gloria is a hidden treasure within the island of Cyprus. We came across Gloria and Paphos Properties whilst trawling through Rightmove looking a potential properties to buy in Cyprus. After a couple of general emails Gloria invited us round her house in the UK as we lived relatively close. She is a warm and welcoming lady with a genuine passion for people and helping them achieve their dream home. Gloria collected us from the airport in Paphos and took us to our hotel, joining us for a drink to start the challenge off with. The following day Gloria picked us up from the hotel and showed us around 11 properties on the first day!! We even all forgot to eat we were that busy. We finished the day off in a lovely beach taverner with a nice cold drink. During our visits to the properties Gloria quickly became aware of exactly what we were looking for and what we didn't like. Sure enough on the second day we visited a further 6 properties (one of which was a re-visit) and set our sites on THE home! The following day Gloria took us to the solicitors ( a fabulous lady called Penelope) where we formalised the purchase of our new Cyprus home. Gloria has been on hand to answer endless questions and offer advise on anything and everything we could possibly think of. She even took us to the Golf course so we could see where Martyn would be spending a lot of his retirement, eventually. The whole process from start to finish has been one of the most pleasureable and stress-free experiences of our lives. Even now Gloria is still helping us find out feet and would try and help anyhow she could. We couldn't have done it without Gloria, who we now consider to be a great friend.
Alan & Evelyn Syme, March 2016
We were extremely fortunate when a chance conversation with a restraunteur in Tala led to an introduction to Gloria Aubry of Cyprus Property Services. Gloria not only helped us to find our dream home in Cyprus
but introduced us to a solicitor and helped us to open a bank account. I can honestly say she has been
invaluable to us during the whole buying process and way beyond. She has assisted us in so many ways I
quite frankly don't know what we would have done without her. Gloria is very, open, honest, easy to get
along with, and has the patience of a saint. This is a lady who will go the extra mile for you, she has
provided us with invaluable advice and has introduced us to various people including reliable local contractors.
She is a true professional & extremely knowledgeable having lived in Cyprus for many years. We would highly
recommend Gloria if you are looking to purchase a home in Cyprus "let her take you by the hand" and guide
you safely through the whole process - we did - we have no regrets - and are now very fortunate to call
this lovely lady a friend.

David & Angela from Lytham Lancashire 2015
For anyone considering purchasing a property in Cyprus then they couldn't be in a safer pair of hands than Gloria and Cyprus Property Services. Gloria is a real gem who has that unique blend of having acquired a vast array of knowledge and experience of purchasing property in Cyprus with a very personalised service and support to anyone taking on that somewhat daunting process. Gloria has been with us every step of the way always there to offer invaluable advice and assistance where necessary in the process of purchasing the property and beyond
in the after sales side of settling into Cyprus. Gloria is a real asset and highly reccommended to anyone considering buying a home in Cypru. Thanking you for your assistance,
Kind Regards David & Angela Hill
Phil, UK, purchased January 2015
Debbie and I decided to purchase a property in the Paphos area. We looked at the large estate agent sites, but found them impersonal and they didn't instil us with much confidence. After a bit of digging we came across Paphos Properties and Gloria Aubry. It quickly became apparent that Gloria offered a friendlier and far more comprehensive service than other agents we had contact with. Prior to flying out to Cyprus, during my inspection trip and on my return to the UK, Gloria provided and, is still providing a level of service that is exceptional. This included arranging accommodation, providing local knowledge and introducing me to people living in the area. During my inspection trip I saw Gloria dealing with another buyer and also accompanied her when valuing and taking on a new property to sell. Everything was open, transparent and when viewing at no time did I feel pressured or manoeuvred into making decisions. Gloria found us our ideal property, arranged a solicitor, a bank account, kept me right in relation to Cyprus property law and put me in touch with the seller in the UK, who I now phone on a weekly basis for a chat about the property and the area. Debbie and I are looking forward to returning to Cyprus to pick up the keys in the near future, as well as seeing Gloria again. She is one lovely, genuine, sincere, caring lady who enjoys helping people and I, like so many other testimonial writers consider her a friend rather than someone I have done business with. On the other hand I could have gone with one of the original estate agents, but I know I would be sitting in the UK hoping and preying I hadn't been ripped off.
Evey and Brian, Tala, Cyprus
Gloria is not only professional and well-informed, she is also kindhearted - a pair of safe hands.
We first met Gloria whilst filming for an appearance on the BBC's Escape to the Continent TV series - what a stroke of luck. She is thorough and methodical and will give you all the time you need to make what is often one of the biggest decisions of your life. She knows about every aspect involved in buying property in Cyprus and will go the extra mile to help. And the support doesn't stop when the property is bought - Gloria is full of helpful advice and suggestions regarding settling in Cyprus.
Our experience was even more straightforward than buying a property in the UK. We have no hesitation in recommending Cyprus Properties Services Ltd for a complete, efficient service.
Debie and Paul
Just wanted to say thank you so much for your help in finding our holiday home. After a couple of hot days in August looking at many properties you came up with this one which ticked so many of our boxes. That's us moved in now.. Our son is in the pool as I write. Also pass on our thanks to the vendors for the excellent condition the property was found in at handover. Thank you once again and kind regards.
Pat and Dennis from Bolton
May I please take this opportunity to sincerely thanks you for the excellent service you have afforded us, I hope all of your clients realise the exceptional lengths that you go to in trying to move their properties in what be very challenging times. We had a viewing earlier through another agency and I can 100% confirm the difference between their service and yours a million miles apart in our opinion. We will be in touch again once we have made our minds up. Could you please thanks all the owners for allowing the opportunity to view their properties and again yourself for the exceptional help and support you have offered us.
Norman from Hertfordshire
Having spent the past 35 years traveling to and from Cyprus, I tend to treat it as my second home without the benefit of actually owning a place there. Well, having spent £1000's of pounds on hotel's and villa accommodation over the past 35 years I finally decided to dip my toes in the water of property ownership. Knowing what a nightmare this can be abroad, it was important to find a trustworthy company that could help every step of the way, I was introduced to Gloria's company and had the pleasure of meeting Keith and his wife Sue who have lived in Cyprus for many years. Keith agreed that he would show me around and we looked at several properties that they had on their books, I found that Keith made my choice easy as he knows the local terrain so well, and it didn?t take long for me to find my dream property! Then it was off to lawyers, paid a deposit, contract signed and hey hoe I have now had the dearest holiday ever, but with the help of Gloria's company the process was very easy and straightforward, many thanks go to Keith and Sue, we will probably stay friends forever. Can?t wait to get back there and test out the new apartment with a glass of bubbly shared with Gloria, Keith and Sue.
Barry and Jayne from Scotland
What makes Gloria different is the unique ability she has to quickly establish your requirements and then turn that in to an action plan that is bespoke to you and not one that accommodates preferences of agents/developers.
Gloria recognises that buying a property abroad is all consuming (most folks only have a few days available to view) and people require professional guidance and support before, during and after the purchase. We found that no matter how small the query nothing is too much trouble because Gloria cares and wants you to be happy and comfortable with the decisions you are making. Gloria also has built up an amazing network that you can tap into to give you confidence about the big decision you are about to make
Would be use Gloria again? We have done, and we continue to recommend her to lots of other people!
Paul and Christine, Newton Le Willows, Merseyside
We decided to look seriously at buying a property abroad, and really liked Cyprus. A friend who moved to the island from the UK recommended Gloria and Paphos Properties to us. They found us a good selection of new and used apartments within our modest budget. An opportunity came up with a new development in Geroskipou, and we were confident enough to put a deposit down ahead of our planned visit to Cyprus!
As our first property abroad we?ve found everything refreshingly straightforward. We?ve treated the whole experience as an adventure, and enjoyed everything from opening a bank account, to choosing bathroom tiles, to visiting the town hall, to cycling down to the local bakers for fresh supplies of Cypriot bread and cakes!
Sheelagh & John from Bedford
We bought our apartment in 2006 through Gloria at Paphos Properties. She gave us exceptional service, right from taking us to every viewing, with no pressure or hard sell to buy like most agents. She takes all the headaches of buying abroad away.She finds you a solicitor for the legal work and even delivers the keys to you on completion !
Without Gloria we would never have achieved our dream and her after sales service is second to none. We still phone her to ask for advice two years later.! We have met many useful contacts through Gloria and many new friends.
I would highly recommend Gloria and her services to anyone thinking of buying their dream home in Cyprus. She will make you feel part of her family.
David and Susan of Swansea (soon to relocate to Cyprus)
Having been recommended Gloria Aubury by friends, we were very fortunate to have found someone who is a true professional in her field.
We found Gloria to be a genuine, honest, hardworking person, who, is not only extremely experienced, but very patient and considerate to those who she is working for.
Gloria took us through the whole process from, collecting us at the airport, accommodation, a complete tour of an extensive property portfolio to completion at a local Cypriot lawyer.
We had complete confidence in her throughout the process and would not hesitate in using her services in the future. We bought an apartment and hopefully will progress to a small secluded villa! Well we can all hope!!
Gloria has extensive contacts throughout the Paphos and western areas of Cyprus and many contacts with local property developers, I must add, she only deals with those of a reputable nature, which is of course comforting to know.
This is the best thing we have ever done and with all the networking we have done these last few years have met many new friends.
Gloria can offer the whole package, which includes rental, comfort packs upon arrival and after care services if required.
Don?t hesitate, check her out!!!
Richard and Llona from Chippenham
I would like to repeat our sincere thanks to you whilst we were in Cyprus for all your help. You were by far the most professional Agent we met. Any client references please ask. We look forward to meeting with you again.
Geoff and Anne Thirlwall from Cheshire
We both want to say how much we appreciated the time and effort given to us. It made the whole process of finding and buying our house very enjoyable.
Lorna McKinney from Guernsey
Just a quick wee note to say thanks for the meal out, the BBQ and most of all your help in finding my lovely place in Cyprus. You are a star!
Jan and Ian Stone from Redditch
Just a note to say thank you for all your help in finding us a home in Cyprus. It was lovely meeting you and I hope we can meet again from time to time as things progress. Thanks also for the evening at the 'Neptune' - it was good to meet and chat with other buyers!
Mike and Donna from Surrey
When my wife Donna and I first went to Cyprus we had no idea what we wanted in the form of an investment property or even where on the island. Having found Glorias advertisment in a magazine we contacted her and asked if we could meet up when we were in Cyprus. Our first impressions of Gloria, which still remain the same today, was of a really warm, bubbly and enthusiastic person who could not do enough for you, nothing is ever too much trouble.
Gloria only deals with the best developers and planned a very comprehenisve programme of site visits around my wife Donnas compulsive sun bathing habits! We now have ownership of a beautiful 3 bedroom penthouse apartment in Mesa Chorio,we keep in touch with Gloria and like many of her clients have become friends, thanks Gloria you were brilliant.
Chris and Linda from Brighton
Please feel free to write the best testimonial thats possible, you know what you want said...go for it...Linda and I cannot thank you enough for your friendship and if we can help in any way we are more than happy to do so. Please put in all the words that matter, and anything else you would wish to include is fine by us.
Lorraine and Johnathon from Cleveland
Dear Gloria, thank you for your valuable help and information in Cyprus, we are sure we will be very happy with our choice and it was much appreciated when you stepped in with the deposit, once again thank you.
Rosemary and Ray from Wolverhampton
Although we told you how pleased we are with our apartment when we visited recently, we felt we would actually like to put this in writing. You have dealt with everything promptly for us and all the help you have given us over the past few months has been greatly appreciated. Even though you have a busy working life you have always made time to answer any questions we may have had, and the assistance you gave us when talking to various utility companies was invaluable. Being in business in Britain, it also makes a refreshing change to deal with nice people who actually do what they promise!
Dale and Elaine from West Yorkshire
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all at Cyprus Property Services for such a good service and for making a daunting process a lot easier for us, I would like to thank Gloria for all that she has done and hope to see her again soon.
Don and Carole from Lancashire
Just a note to say how happy we are with our finished apartment. Thank you for introducing us to the developer and your help and advice, we would be more than pleased to recommend your service. We hope to meet with you sometime in the future in Paphos and look forward to that.
Mary from Sunderland
In every aspect I found Cyprus Property Services to be both proffesional and honest, from the time of contact by e-mail regarding viewing a property to the day I received the keys plus the after service, was second to none.
My relationship is ongoing and I know that I can contact them if I need help. The Company's friendly and open attitude on every level helped greatly, the process of purchasing a property outside the UK was daunting, but this soon disappeared with the help and advice I received from their representitive in Cyprus, who I now consider a friend rather than an Estate Agent, he really gave an after sales service that was far beyond anything that would normally be expected.
My experience with Cyprus Property Services before, during and after my property purchase has been excellent, every member of the team have been approachable and welcoming. It has been a joy to deal with them and I will use them again when I relocate completely in a few years time.
Rosie and John from Bedfordshire
We found Gloria Aubury by word of mouth. We were looking for an overseas property to invest in but were novices, and thus very frightened of the process. From the very beginning of our contacting Gloria we have had the very best of advice. When we met Gloria in Cyprus we immediately felt we could trust her completely and indeed bought a property with her help. She only associates with those developers that she believes will give a good service and high standard of build. We have had excellent support and information from Gloria and she has helped us throughout our transactions, indeed she became a friend to us and to this day remains so.
Gloria's commitment to her clientele is indeniably 100% and we know that many come back again and again when they wish to upgrade or sell their property.
We are delighted and honoured to give this testimonial.
Jaqueline from Edinburgh (recommendation written to Holiday Villas Magazine where she found us, an article was indeed published)
We went to Cyprus specifically to buy a property there. I saw an advert for Cyprus Property Services in your magazine so I called Gloria Aubury with regards to this. Our trip was very succesful and we purchased an aprtment in Emba, on the outskirts of Paphos.
The reason I am writing to you is to say how helpful Gloria was, we couldn't have managed it without her expert help. Everything so far has gone smoothly - we can't beleive it! Gloria went that extra bit further with customer care, taking me to furniture shops etc. Everyone we met was extremely nice and no pressure was applied in the slightest. We hope that we will have Gloria's friendship for many years as she made us so welcome just like part of the family.
I just thought you would like to know how happy we are with the service from Cyprus Property Services and if ever you would like a feature about buying property in Cyprus from beginning to end, especially after sales, then Gloria Aubury is just the person.
Graham and Ann from Geriskipou, Cyprus
We met Gloria, who plays a vital role in Cyprus Property Services, on our first full day following our move to Cyprus. From the outset we greatly appreciated her approach in assisting us to find a property that would be suitable and become ?our home?. Clearly she had carefully planned our time with her so that we viewed properties, which met our specification and were at both ends of our price bracket. The latter was particularly important as it assisted us in ensuring that we understood the local property market and we could achieve value for money.
Having made our purchase, Gloria continued to support us by introducing us to a variety of shop keepers so that we could make the necessary purchases for our new home. She did this with understanding and patience, so that we have been pleased not only with the villa as a building but also with the furnishings all of which need to integrate to generate a feeling of ?home?. She has been there to help us with the inevitable ?snags? which have occurred and throughout she has given generously of her expertise, experience and time. Gloria?s commitment to achieving ?delighted customers? has been in evidence throughout and we now count her as a friend.
Bharat and Sangibba from Newport Pagnell
We have been thinking a lot about you since our chat at the hotel and wanted to thank you for your experienced guidance to our new home in Cyprus, Both of us valued your time and would like to wish you all the best for the future. Please keep in touch on a regular basis.
Peter and Clare from Market Rasen (now living in Geriskipou, Cyprus)
Just to say thank you very much for your help, expertise and negotiating skills! We are delighted with our choice of property and look forward to moving to Paphos. As I mentioned to you when we met, we approached several developers and agents for information via e-mail prior to our visit to Paphos and we selected you as we were impressed with the quality of information you sent us and the excellent communication system between your office, yourself and us. We are very happy with the way you looked after us and to see for ourselves your good rapport with the Lawyer and Developer. It is a huge step for us and we feel reassured by the support we are receiving.
Ray and Tessa from Essex (now living in Kato Paphos, Cyprus)
Dear Gloria, Just a few lines to say 'thank you' to a very special lady (a TV star no less!) Once again Tessa and I are saying thanks to you, I feel sure we will say it a lot more. You are special and hope we can remain friends for a long time. God bless.
Christine and Roger from East Anglia (now living in Thremithousa, Cyprus)
When Christine and I decided to sell up and move to Cyprus we looked through the many magazines to find out where to get help. Gloria Aubury at Cyprus Property Services had 17 years experience helping people relocate to Paphos so she must have a formula that works.
We had several telephone conversations with Gloria before moving which were great especially for Christine who had never been on a plane before. She also arranged a good Lawyer, opened bank accounts for us, got local phone numbers and found us some where to rent.
Gloria met us at the airport on Wednesday night. She arranged for us to look at some cars on the Thursday morning along with a loan car. That night she took us to the airport to collect our dog.
On Friday and Saturday Gloria?s associate, Graham, took us to see some 18 houses that met our needs and on Monday we signed contracts for a new house that was ready for delivery. We moved in a month from the day we arrived.
Gloria and Graham have since become good friends and we would recommend them to anybody needing good and friendly assistance. It?s true to say that CPS go that extra mile to help make the process easier.
