The management of the villa construction is led by myself, Ashkar Ahamed, with my company Ashkars Villas which comprises of experienced local construction professionals and skilled tradesmen. Living here as a British expat, with my Sri Lankan wife and son, I have worked as an independent Sri Lanka real estate advisor to foreign investors for a number of years. During which time, I recognised the need for a simple villa solution for foreigners so they can get on with enjoying their piece of paradise without the complicated foreign ownership rules or the challenge of dealing with local building contractors. From your first email to us through to the on-going management of your completed villa, I will act as your point-of-contact throughout. Quite simply, my team and I are with you every step of the way.
What Our Clients Say
“Having just completed my fourth transaction with Ashkar, he has proven time and again to be the most professional real estate person to work with in Galle. Ashkar is able to recommend properties that are an exact match to what I was looking for in a timely and concise manner. He demonstrates his expertise by pre-empting your questions and provides all the answers with no ‘small print’, and is able to put together entire transactions smoothly, making him a pleasure to work with. I bought my first property in Sri Lanka via Ashkar in 2012, and four transactions later (all via Ashkar), he has managed each and every transaction through various regulation changes with little or no impact to me, thus saving me the effort of swimming through the complicated systems in a foreign country. I highly recommend Ashkar to all foreign (and local) investors to help find your ideal real estate in Galle.”
“Ashkar and his partner Sadaque earned our very highest praise for their exceptional work helping our company purchase property in Southern Sri Lanka. Ashkar and Sadaque’s real estate expertise, familiarity with local regulations and officials, their ability to get things done quickly and work through issues that come up, and their diligence and grit in getting to the closing regardless of the impediments that appear were incredibly impressive, and greatly appreciated. I can recommend Ashkar without hesitation.“
