Cagatay and Gill Erer have lived in Altinkum / Didim since April 1997, having married in Bodrum in the April of that year. Gill is British, from Brighton in East Sussex, and Cagatay was born in Adana in the South of Turkey but grew up in Istanbul.
When in the UK Gill worked in a variety of different administrative employs starting with local government and finally for Post Office Counters, where she began as a counter clerk and worked her way up to manager within 3 years. Due to the large number of training courses attended, Gill has very good customer care knowledge and is accustomed to working with efficient and professional procedures and systems.
In Turkey Gill has worked as a tour rep, tour guide, hotel receptionist, jeweller’s sales assistant, and finally went into the property market in 2003. Cagatay studied mechanical engineering at university and went on from that to find employ in the tourism sector. Starting as a clerk and change officer in a local tourism agency, he worked his way up to Branch Manager of the agency for well-known tour operator First Choice where he also gained a good grounding in customer care and services.
3 years ago he changed his sector to property sales. He was employed as branch manager in a well-known Turkish and British registered estate agency TTPC.
He then worked in Sun Escape estate agency as a sales and marketing manager and then transferred to an unusual and unique project called Seahorse Residences as a sales and marketing manager.
Overall, he personally arranged over 120 home sales.
Both Gill and Cagatay have worked in the property sector now for several years, and have an extensive knowledge of all procedures, laws and legalities involved. Each speaks the others’ language fluently and both are respected members of their local community.
They decided to run their own registered home business to share their experience and knowledge with potential property buyers in Didim In 2001 having purchased land, they built their own small block, selling 2 aparts to Brits and retaining the 3rd themselves. This gave them a realistic insight into the building laws and procedures, as well as the possible problems that could be encountered. As a team, they work in contrast with each other to provide all the answers a client may need and to ensure the purchase of a property goes ahead as smoothly as possible.
As both also enjoy an active social life they will always be happy to ‘take a break’ from the serious aspects of property purchase, and enjoy a night off with their clients too!
For those who are thinking of purchasing property, this team is the tops, offering absolutely everything from knowledge to professionalism, conscientiousness to efficiency and at the same time, having found a way to earn honestly whilst the client saves!
