Discover Your Dream Home in Crete

Whether it's a beautiful 1-bed apartment in Heraklion or a 5-bed luxury villa by the beach
A Home in Crete has them all with access to more properties than any other agent in Crete

Personal 1to1 Service

The main difference between A Home in Crete and all other independent real estate agents in Crete is the personal 1to1 service that we offer from your very first point of contact to after sales and moving in to your new home in Crete.

On average buyers view around 5 properties in their chosen area and most of the time the viewings need to be organised with many multiple estate agents.  We arrange all this for you, maximising your time when here to ensure you get to see as much as possible from both the properties and the area.  If you cannot make it here we will also do personal video viewings for you. 

Complete our simple online form with what properties you are looking for including the links to any other properties from other estate agents and we will get started for you. 

We Have Got You Covered

  • Find Your Perfect Home

    We will arrange all the viewings for you, even if they are with other estate agents. If its not possible to do the viewing in person we can do a video viewing for you. This is the most important stage of the whole process and what can make or break your decision to purchase in Crete.

  • Arrange For the Perfect Lawyer

    We will put you in contact with our Lawyer Christiana who will obtain a 'Power of Attorney' allowing all the documents to be signed. Christiana will then obtain a tax number and bank account and do all the relevant checks for the property including doing the final contract of acquisition if needed.

  • When Your Ready to Move

    You do not need to return to Crete at anytime throught the process as A Home in Crete and the lawyers will complete everything for you, If needed we can also do the key handover. When you are ready to move to Crete your new dream home will be ready and waiting for you.

  • After Sales

The third largest city in Crete but it never realy feels like a city, like Chania and Heraklion does as it has more of a slower place which is beautiful in appearence and a wash of timeless attractions.

Rethymno has alot of Venetian influences with a fortress (The Fortezza) built in 1573 that dominates the city but also has endless sandy beaches, museums, city architecture, and archaeological sites.  

Rethymno’s harbour area is a great place to stroll olong to the venetian lighthouse, get a coffee, eat and to browse in both modern and old shops.


Heraklion is the largest city in Crete which has undergone alot of re-development in recent years.  This includes the waterfront, roads, and central pedestrian walking strips in the historic centre.

The most visited attraction in Crete must be the Palace of Knossos, A story of Minoan cilvilisation, this has been well restored by Arthur Evans this is only 25 minutes from the centre of Heraklion. One of the best known streets for finding direction in Heraklion is the 25th August Street which is now paved and boasts the most beautiful Neoclassical buildings in Heraklion.


In the eastern most region of Crete, Lasithi is made up of of Municipalities, Ierapetra, Oropedio Lasithiou, Siteia and the capital Agios Nikolaos.

From start to finish Phil was brilliant, he helped us find this great property, showed us around and then buy it, all within 3 months.  We can highly recommend Phil & A Home in Crete to anyone looking to buy a home


Mr & Mrs Folan


We had a great experience with A Home in Crete.  Even though we reside in Germany we were confident that Phil and Christiana the lawyer was completing everything for us.  We would definately give 5 stars for service.


Mr & Mrs Müller


We wanted to view alot of properties and Phil helped us set up the viewings even some of them remotely as we live in Switzerland.  We had our reservations at the beginning but pleased to say that they were amazing.
