Marbella, December 10th. – The renovation of its Puente Romano sales offices has been the crowning achievement for the 50th anniversary of Panorama Properties, the longest established real estate agency in Marbella. Panorama’s in-depth knowledge of the luxury home market and top-quality professionalism have allowed this family-run company, directed and managed by Christopher Clover, to lead the industry during this time. Panorama has become an integral part of the history of Marbella over the last half century, a milestone recognized by the Mayoress of the city, Ángeles Muñoz, who by her presence at the inauguration of the renovated facilities this Thursday, showed her commitment and support to one of the most important economic sectors on the Costa del Sol.

Panorama’s ability to adapt in a sector that is in continuous evolution has been essential in order to reach the half century mile stone as a benchmark real estate agency in the luxury sector on the Costa del Sol, an anniversary that shows the strength of the company for its high level of professionalism and quality of service. These values have been passed on from generation to generation in the Clover family, who began in the real estate business more than a century ago in the United States and in the 70s ended up in a rapidly growing Marbella that attracted aristocrats, royalty, Hollywood stars and the most select Spanish and European society. “A unique quality environment that continues to attract people from all over the world,” said Christopher Clover.
In 1970, by opening its first office in Marbella, Panorama became the first international real estate agency located in the city, and since then has been an exceptional witness to the evolution of Marbella and the Costa del Sol. The agency broke new ground with innovative practices such as sponsorship of inspection flights to the coast or the promotion of “open houses” to encourage the collaboration of other agents in selling their listings. Clover’s children, Alex and Katinka, joined the management team after the turn of the century, sharing their father’s passion and dedication to forge lasting alliances with their clients and friends.
Panorama’s offices have been located on the Golden Mile for the last 25 years, in the hotel Puente Romano and opposite the Marbella Club Hotel. “A strategic location in the heart of the ultra-prime area of Marbella”. To celebrate half a century of leadership in a highly competitive and constantly evolving environment, Panorama has completely renovated its Puente Romano sales office.
