We hope you enjoy reading this informative brochure and we feel sure that after reading you will want to know more about this unique opportunity.
LOCATIONS We are committed to finding the best location.
Long before the idea of buying such a property has become a reality for you, we have been scouring the coast for the most desirable sites, to suit our demanding clienteleâ€™s needs and desires. We bring our years of experience to bear when developing a new market, buying and selling, market research and after sales care in a desire to bring you the most outstanding properties. This is where you undoubtedly stand to benefit. Because making the right decision in choosing an outstanding location is also taking the first step towards making a nice return on your investment, while having a pleasant place to live in for many years to come. These are just a few reasons for our ever-growing and well established reputation in this field. We have set the benchmark for quality and uniqueness by which all other sea front developers are judged. You will never tire of hearing the sound of the waves crashing outside your window day and night, summer or winter. But our locations on top of that offer innumerable amenities for recreation; and this combined with the breathtaking natural environment and the facilities in the local area are simply just some of the reasons to keep reading. So cash in on the time we have already spent hunting down the best locations.
“Beauty is a sign of intelligence.”
CONCEPTS Architects with powerful concepts.
Unique locations require nothing more and nothing less than unique solutions. From the first sketches to the final plans there are no limits to the efforts we make during the entire project design process, paying careful attention to the greatest attributes and the tiniest details until everything is perfect and we are absolutely sure we have found the best solutions for dealing with the often tricky questions a plan gives rise to. This is patently obvious not only because of the carefully thought-out architectural designs but also because of what you can sense and feel. Not least because of, say, the spacious parking area or the extra acoustic insulation to keep you on the best of terms with your neighbours. The extra time we spend creating an optimum design you can recoup by way of carefree living.
QUALITY Question of teamwork.
Building is a profession. And a passion. By putting all our energy into designing a project. By never ever hesitating to call things into question. By constantly seeking out the best materials and the best solutions. By closely and constantly keeping track of the building activities. Achieving all these things at the same time is part of a very intricate process. But it is also quite straightforward. All POC Partners are committed to pulling out all the stops for your house or apartment. Over and over again. Until it is just right. Until we are absolutely sure that the outcome will continue for generations to come. For our designers, project managers and our technical and financial experts, it has now become an ingrained habit to seek out only the very best.
CONTROL In own hand.
Throughout the entire building process it takes to complete our real estate projects, we like to be closely involved in how things are shaping up. No need to say a lot about how good our projects are, apart from stressing that we build using the best suppliers and the best materials on the market. But we can be quite loquacious when we want to be. Especially about the role that POC Partnersâ€™ staff play. Our engineers, project officers and site managers are leading the way when it comes to building projects. As well as coordinating the various architectural team members, they also take over the supervision of all our service providers, so we can be sure that even the tiniest screw is in the right place and your house or apartment fulfils all the quality requirements as promised.
RETURN An incomparable return starts with an incomparable property.
Volumes have been written about the issue of achieving a return. With varying success. But what is a return? Is it nothing more than juggling with figures? Or is the enjoyment of a property also tantamount to a return? Our customers often offer us an answer to these questions. Very many of them rejoice in what they have purchased. Through their personal carefree enjoyment of the accommodation or subsequently discovering that their house or apartment is worth much more than the price they paid. Thanks to their locations, their concepts and their finishing touches our projects often generate a return that puts investment advisers in the shade. We want to keep it that way. But above all we are keen to maintain our long-term approach, hoping that you will be able to enjoy a magnificent spot on the coast for many years to come. After all, an unmatched return starts with an unmatched property. You only have to ask the proud owner of a rare classic car.
â€œI have the simplest taste. I am only satisfied with the best. â€œ
FORMULA A winning formula for over 20 years.
For more than 20 years now POC Partners has used the same tried and tested formula for the development of coastal properties Our operations have now been extended from Belgium to cover Poland as well. The key ingredients of the recipe have already been explained to you but just as important is the need for the POC Partners management team to be made up of longterm thinkers: people from different generations with a mixed bag of experiences, courage and keen insights. But above all what is required is more joined-up thinking.
