King Emlak Dalyan Estate Agent Reviews & Testimonials

Jolie Springer

I am delighted to share my experience in the purchase of my villa in Dalyan, June 2023.

I first saw Dalyan in April of 2023 after considering other communities along the Mediterranean Coast of Turkey. So many things impressed me about this village. I had been referred to another emlak and spent several days with the agent looking at properties. I was pressured to purchase and the experience created undue stress as none of the properties I was shown fit my needs.

Fast forward - Through a series of events, I was fortunate enough to meet the welcoming, professional and friendly team at King Emlak. From the very beginning, I felt heard and respected and in short order, my dream villa appeared. It was everything I had hoped for and more. The process was made simple and I felt supported through each step of my purchase. My experience did not end with the purchase, however. The maintenance of the pool, garden and the craftsmen who work with King Emlak after a home purchase are top notch. I have been so grateful for their advice and expertise. The relationships among the team is apparent. They seem to work seamlessly. No matter who I spoke to about my experience, once I mentioned I was being assisted by this company, the reputation of King Emlak and assurance that I had used the right group was affirmed. Sezgin, Yasar, Leanne and Burcu have been instrumental in helping me create my next life chapter.

Real estate transactions are not new to me. I was a realtor for over 15 years in the United States prior to relocating to Turkiye. The area I lived and worked in had high growth and I dealt with luxury properties, assisting my clients in both selling and buying homes. I am so grateful for my Dalyan experience. I cannot imagine working with any other company - King Emlak is superb!

Whilst property hunting in Turkiye for around 18 months, there were around 7 trips and search covered Alanya, Didum, Akbuk, Fethiye. My German friend and I looked at lots of properties with numerous estate agents, along the way we heard some tall stories tailored to fit what the agents thought we wanted to hear ;Yes, dogs are definitely allowed [no when we spoke to the community Manager that was Not correct] incredible escalating prices combined with shrinking management fees made for an interesting would be buyers experience. Then on my last but one day searching in Fethiye, I decided to travel to Dalyan. Leanne showed me a number of properties and I fell in love with a quirky traditional cottage, the very last property I saw.

The buying process was smooth, [in spite of my tricky Youtube famous lawyer from Fethiye] the team at King Emlak took it all in their stride and absolutely nothing was too much trouble for the incredible team there, [they even restored my faith in Estate Agents- no easy task as I was scammed in Marbella by an agent in cahoots with their recommended lawyer] but I have no hesitation in vouching for this agent- they go above and beyond, and really care about reputation, and great service for buyer and seller alike. They arranged my transfers to/from the airport, found me a fabulous friendly and reasonably priced hotel where I stayed until completion and I was handed the keys.

King Emlak provide regular maintenance inspections for my property, and they promptly and very efficiently arranged redecoration, a new aircon unit etc. Nothing is too much trouble and they do not rip people off, it is an independent agent not a chain and everyone takes great pride in establishing and maintaining great relationships.

Buying a property can be stressful, especially in a foreign country but if you discover Dalyan and buy through King Emlak then count yourself very, very lucky, I can't recommend them highly enough!

Sally Graham-Nourse and Kevin Nourse

We were looking for property in Dalyan a few years ago and asked for recommendations of estate agents there. So many people named Leanne at King Emlak and I messaged her enquiring about current properties on the market suitable for us. She was the most helpful, knowledgeable and 'unpushy' sales person I've come across! We never felt pressurised, there were no hard sales tactics on viewings and we felt we were in the best hands finding us the perfect place. We were given a purchase cost figure and once we completed, we were unexpectedly reimbursed a large sum as it wasn't as expensive as they thought. That really impressed us.

After purchasing, King emlak continued to give amazing post-sales support, setting up utility bills etc. We even went shopping with Leanne and she bought furniture for us on her credit card to enable us to get it delivered, (obviously we paid her back!) She has helped us source cleaners, transfers, decorating, tiling, WiFi, and organised a total bathroom refurb whilst we weren't even there! Always trustworthy and obliging, there was no doubt when we sold, it would be King Emlak to market it. We received a solid offer very quickly after putting on the market and we have been kept up to date with sale.

We would have no hesitation recommending this trustworthy company to anyone considering buying or selling property in Dalyan.

Mike Wade

We can highly recommend King Emlak. We found them honest and very professional throughout our property search in Dalyan. They listened and understood our needs, showing us suitable properties appropriate to our budget on several visits to the area.

Having found our ideal property, they were available, responsive and helpful, particularly, when it felt like things were not going very well with our own property sale in another province.

Thank you so much to you all, in particular to Leanne and Ya?ar for your professionalism and sense of humour, always clear, calm and reassuring throughout our communications without any pushiness.

They guided us through the actual buying process clearly understanding recent changes in legislation and the implications of this for us.

They also have trustworthy contacts for after sales services.

Simon and April

King Emlak built our first house in 2012 and they sold this for us a year or so later very quickly as we wanted them to build a much larger detached villa in 2014, we put this villa on the market in 2021.

We were in no hurry to sell initially but our circumstances changed and King Emlak were very quick to respond and found us a buyer. The whole process was made very easy and King Emlak took care of everything even helping us with the money transfer from Turkey to Uk. We would not hesitate to recommend King Emlak to anyone thinking of buying or selling property in Dalyan, the whole team are very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and such great people to deal with.

Lee Scarth

Amazing service from King Emlak!

As first-time property buyers in Dalyan, it was a daunting time, but Sezgin and the team at King Emlak made things easy and explained everything clearly, every step of the way!

Since our purchase in 2022 we have continued to use their services, both for building works on the villa and for cleaning, both of which we are really happy with too - a special mention goes to Leanne who has been invaluable to us and always on hand to answer our many questions. Thanks again King Emlak!!

Wendy & Keith Biggin

Wendy & Keith Biggin came into the office - just to look but just had to buy.

We have been looking in the King Emlak window for ten years, this year we actually went into the office with the intention of looking and not buying! Leanne took care to understand what we were looking for in an apartment and compiled a short list. Leanne ensured that our viewings were relaxed but professional, and we soon realized we had found the place for us, we couldn't allow it to get away!

Leanne was very knowledgeable with all the details. They were able to advise clearly about probable costs of ownership and the ins and outs of buying and selling. So we did end up buying that week! We were guided through the negotiation process with really good communication and were confident to return to the UK leaving all the details. They gave us every confidence in buying property in a foreign country and took the mystery out of everything. We found the whole experience impressive.

We would whole-heartedly recommend the King Emlak Team!

Val Walker

We decided that we wished to buy a house in Dalyan, I sought advice on-line, through Facebook and Turkish Living Forum and also in person from British residents in Dalyan. Of the many Emlaks in the town, King was the only one that received 100% recommendation without reservation!

I contacted the sales team at King Emak and made arrangements to view several properties. The viewings were conducted by Sezgin who listened and understood our requirements. We very quickly found a property that ticked all our boxes at a reasonable asking price.

The legal process was simple and easy to understand and King were helpful all along the way. I would not hesitate in recommending King Emlak to anyone looking for a property in Dalyan and it is good to know that such a friendly and helpful group are at the end of the phone/email or in the office if we ever need help or advice.

Karl & Jane Ratcliffe

We first visited Dalyan in September 2013 and it was love after the first week. Within a few weeks of being home, we booked to go back and arranged with King Emlak to view several properties. We chose King Emlak over other estate agents as firstly their website was user friendly and advertised a wealth of different properties but also because they had good reviews. From the moment, we saw our villa we knew it was the one and we made an offer the next day. A price was agreed and we went back to see the villa before we flew back to England.

King Emlak made the whole experience of buying abroad stress-free and went above and beyond the expectations of a UK estate agent driving us here and there, making all the appointments, giving us advice and information and always keeping us informed, Sezgin, Leanne and Sonuc were always professional but friendly and approachable. Finally on September 29th 2014, the villa was ours and we can't thank King Emlak enough for all their help and patience.

Domenik, Ray & Loes

The first time for us to buy a house in turkey and it was pretty exciting. The most important part is to find the right partner in charge and we are so please to find one of a kind in the place Dalyan.

King Emlak is more than just a real estate agent. It is a service agency who provides the best help from step one to the last. You never walk alone is one of the best slogans which fits to this agency.

Communication is clear - what you see is definitely what you get. As a foreigner in a different country a lot of questions and uncertainties were coming up and due to the proper accompaniment, we had, everything was just crystal clear. King Emlak does not stop after the closing of the contract - they offer help and support for all other "small little things" ;-)

Perfect service & price. The best reliable partner you can wish! we are new fans of King Emlak.

Maurice & Chris

The first time we went to Dalyan was in 1994 and we fell in love with the place, it was quiet, beautiful and truly Turkish. After this first trip we went several times and we decided to buy something.

We visited several estate agencies but were immediately attracted by the competencies, help and kindness we received from King Emlak. We had a lot of accurate explanations about the proceedings and the properties themselves. So last year we found a lovely villa in the Arikbasi area and thanks to King Emlak, we are now the happy owners of a lovely spot. It all went so smooth and perfect; this would not happen in Belgium.

We are very grateful to King Emlak and have our little Paradise and realize our dream.

Necati Avci

King Emlak was recommended to me by friends and subsequently I have been a client of theirs since 2013. They originally assisted me to purchase land and build a property. Since then, they have maintained the property, garden and pool to a high standard. King Emlak also managed both the holiday and long-term tenancies for the property.

As I live abroad, it is imperative that I have people that I can trust, to be there looking after my interests. Sezgin Yigit and his staff have local knowledge and the expertise required to successfully and reliably manage all the requirements related to my property.

Low staff turnover means that I am always met with familiar, friendly and welcoming faces, as well as having the assurance that the staff have high level of competence and experience to deal with any issues that may arise.

In short King Emlak with its staff, is a trust worthy establishment that will carry out any task that they undertake to the satisfaction of their clients. I would not hesitate to recommend them unreservedly.

Hope you and the team are all doing well.

Mr Ali, UK

To all of the King Emlak team and in particular to Sezgin, Leanne and Sonuc; thank you so much for all of your help! I am so grateful for all the hard work you've done to not only help us secure our beautiful holiday villa in Marmali but also to continue to manage the same on our behalf.

Throughout the purchase, Leanne and the team have been there every step of the way. They have always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. Their professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that they were just trying to sell me a property, but that they were a mentor to answer my questions and help me to make the best decision for my family.

I now consider them as friends and would highly recommend their service to anyone that is searching for anything property related.

Thanks again to Sezgin and the team for being such a pleasure to work with.

Beverley Bissett

We were first recommended Kings by our Turkish friends when we bought our property in 2008. We had never bought abroad before and were understandably nervous. Kings walked us through the whole process, they listened to what we wanted, didn't try to rush us and did everything they could to help. It's the easiest property we've ever purchased thanks to them.

More recently we sold our property and the first people we thought of to do this for us was Kings. Yet again we were able to leave it all in their capable hands and Leanne has taken care of everything, keeping us fully informed and advising us along the way. Totally trustworthy, massively helpful and so approachable and friendly, I would recommend Kings to anyone looking to buy or sell a Dalyan property

Peter Furlong

There are many Emlaks in Dalyan so it's always good to ask others about their experiences. We were aware of King Emlak as we always looked in their windows as we looked to fulfil our dream of buying property in Dalyan.

The feedback from others was always positive about Kings. In 2013 we took the first steps and went inside for help. It's a tough call buying property abroad as UK television is full of horror stories.

The professionalism and friendly advice were evident from the start. We never felt any pressure to buy despite the time and effort given to us. In 2014 the dream was achieved. The staff at King Emlak helped us from start to finish.

The advice and help don't end on completion of purchase they are always there to help. We can't recommend King Emlak enough.

Suppose the name is a hint!

Emlak Royalty.

Hilary Wilkinson

King Emlak have looked after our large communal pool and garden at my holiday villa for many years. They are thoroughly reliable and trustworthy and do an amazing job. I have nothing but praise for their services. It gives me peace of mind knowing that my property is well looked after, and that any problem is dealt with efficiently and promptly.

Denis and Paula Hogg

King Emlak have looked after the gardens and pool at Amber Villas for over ten years now.

They have always done an excellent job. Even the last couple years were traveling to Dalyan has been very difficult, sometimes impossible, we are reassured that maintenance of the gardens and pool are in good hands.

Leanne and her team are very professional and communicate with us either by WhatsApp or email. Lea also send us photos regularly of our beautiful gardens and the pool. Looking forward to getting back to Dalyan and Amber Villas in 2022.


I have used Leanne & her team at King Emlak to buy two properties in Dalyan. The first was a new build 2 bedroomed maisonette & my present property a 3 bedroomed house. On both occasions they helped me navigate through every step of the purchase process. I would not have been able to buy my properties without their excellent advice & help.

At both properties King Emlak provide the regular pool & garden maintenance which is always done to an extremely high standard. Leanne and her staff provide an excellent, professional & very friendly service. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending King Emlak.

Diane Shannaghan

I would not hesitate to recommend King Emlak for property purchase and after our experience this year would certainly use them again. Leanne was very helpful and carried out property checks for us as we were delayed in getting out to Dalyan.

There was never any hard sell from KE and there was always a prompt response to our e mail queries. When we were finally able to visit Dalyan we were assisted through the purchase with Tapu, electricity transfer and getting things up and running at the property. There was always someone to speak to at the office and we were always met with a helpful and understanding manner.

Nico Broekzitter

Ten years ago, we decided to buy Amber villa 2 'of plan' with King Emlak. We visited Dalyan a few times and fell in love with the people, the surroundings, weather and nature. After 10 years doing business with Sezgin and his team (Leanne is our favourite) we consider everyone at King Emlak as our friend. Always around when you need them, reasonable pricing, great service, no worries for us, far abroad. The advices given by King Emlak always worked out at the best. We appreciate the work they have done for us and the effort to give us the right service, even after ten years this is the highest level we could imagine. As a matter of fact, we still use their renovation, garden and pool service, I hope for many years to come!

Alan Hodgkinson

Cheryl Anne

Would highly recommend King Emlak. They are all friendly people, and are always willing to help and answer any questions. Sonuc in the office speaks fantastic English. When we purchased our property, nothing was too much trouble and Sonuc accompanied us on all viewings, giving advice and answering all our queries. We still use King Emlak for any renovation or repair work we have carried out.

Ann Prewer

King Emlak refurbed my house in 2015 from top to bottom inside n out! Also central heating, air con units etc.! When it was time for me to return, I was astounded to find it was not only amazing but absolutely spotless! Can definitely recommend them for anything just go into their office n ask!

Jonny Francey

Absolutely excellent. Took the stress of selling out of the whole experience. Language barriers in Türkiye when buying/selling can be difficult. My contact was Leanne who could not have been more helpful and I had no problems. I give very little a 5-star rating but in this case well deserved. Thankyou Leanne and co.

Karen Jacks

This isn't the first property we have bought in Türkiye, the first was 10 years ago. Advice and support are so important through what can be a tricky process. They are all so helpful, knowledgeable, and gave excellent advice. The process was very smooth thanks to their great network of contacts and expertise. Warm thanks from us.

Diane Green
