COMPANY/FIRM: Christos Georgiades & Associates LLC

TESTIMONIAL: “As South African permanent residents of Cyprus, unfamiliar with Cypriot laws and customs, we have found it very difficult to conduct business effectively from so far away. We therefore decided to entrust the purchase of our new house in Pafos to Ms Fofo Georgiadou of Christos Georgiades & Associates. This was one of the best things we could have done. She conducted the legalities and certain problems that arose speedily and professionally and to our complete satisfaction. Ms Georgiadou was so efficient and capable that we have now assigned her a general Power of Attorney to conduct all our affairs in Cyprus. The advice and service that we received from Christos Georgiades & Associates was always professional, prompt, courteous and effective”.
