Rick Parfitt of Status Quo is Rocking Marbella Real Estate

Retirement? A word that definitely isn't in Rick Parfitt's vocabulary.

Musician and songwriter Rick Parfitt has had an illustrious music career, spanning over 5 decades and continues today. When it comes to 'shelf life', Status Quo broke record sales, and maintain today, a huge following.

Parfitt loves the Costa del Sol, and after purchasing a luxury villa in the Andalusian town of Alhaurín el Grande, things for the rocker, lovingly nicknamed the 'Wild Old Man of Rock ‘n' Roll' got a bit busier. Besides being one of the UK's most enduring musicians, Parfitt decided to partner up with Julian Hall, one of Marbella's best real estate agents.

Swapping the Guitar for Real Estate in Marbella?

No, not quite, but the quirky partnership is certainly paying off.

Parfitt's original plan was to open a showcase featuring luxury cars, but life has a funny way of switching around your plans. Besides the partnership with Status Homes, and finding interested Brits to buy up a luxury or contemporary villa in Marbella, the sun has certainly done Parfitt and his family well.

Spain's almost perfect scenery, and it's very particular way of life does something to you…nothing bad of course; in fact, the southern Spanish sun shines so bright over 300 days a year, you'd be silly not to retire here! British expats make up most of the property buyers interested in buying second holiday homes on the Costa del Sol.

Many also want to work closely with people who speak their language, and offer help where it's absolutely needed most when buying property in Marbella.

Rick Parfitt may be an old rocker, but he understands a lot of the ups and downs that go with buying a property in Spain. Julian Hall of course is the expert:

'Buying a second holiday home or just retiring here doesn't have to be a huge headache. Finding the property of your dreams is more than possible on the Costa del Sol.' – States Julian Hall, the second half of Status Homes.
