Toprak Services has the winning combination. Firstly, the Toprak brothers have a wide range of highly skilled crafts, from stonemason to carpenter to plasterer which can be backed up with photos and client testimonials.
Secondly, you could not meet a more reliable, dedicated or conscientious group of workers. If they say they will be there, they will be there. If they say they will clean up afterwards, they clean up. It's that simple.
And thirdly, with Yusuf's wife being English you can rest assured that there can be nothing lost in translation and that you will be kept informed about all aspects of the work at every stage in the project
In 2001 Yusuf Toprak left his home town in the east of Turkey to come and work alongside his older brothers in Dalyan. His brothers were quickly establishing themselves in the Dalyan area as successful builders, plasterers and painters for some big hotels in Dalyan. They built up a large portfolio of building projects such as the Keskin Hotel and the beautiful stonework at the BC Spa Hotel on Dalyan's river delta.
During this time, Yusuf also worked as the barman at a small bar in Dalyan centre. This is where he started to meet more European customers with villas and apartments in the area. It was then that he began painting and building work for private owners. These years of experience have helped Yusuf to understand the level of service expected by European customers and the quality of finish.
It was during 2011 whilst working in the bar, that Yusuf met an Englishwoman called Amy. A year later Amy and Yusuf were married and living in Dalyan together. Yusuf carried on working in the bar whilst he and his brothers continued to take on large building projects as well as increasing their private customer base.
In 2013 the opportunity arose for Amy and Yusuf to buy the bar where they first met. They called the bar Amy's Bar and each year it has gone from strength to strength. Now they have a loyal customer base of local ex-pats and repeat visitors to Dalyan. Not only has Yusuf's painting and decorating business really taken off, but due to the couple being reliable and trustworthy, they also provide a cleaning and villa preparation service for a number of villa owners which ensures the villas are ready for the season to begin and cleaned after any guests leave.
In 2017 Amy and Yusuf bought a 3-bedroom villa just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Dalyan. Yusuf and his team completely renovated and modernised the 20-year-old villa. Garden and swimming pool, insuring all the electrics and plumbing certified. Toprak team installed a new en -suite bathroom with a bath, new kitchen, ceramic flooring and full decoration throughout.
The garden is beautiful and colourful driveway. This has been a very successful rental property with bookings throughout the year. Please contact us if you are interested in 2021 Dalyan villa rental in 2021.
As if all of this wasn’t enough for Yusuf, in 2018 he bought a share in a boat and now runs private tours along the beautiful river and out to sea to visit some of the stunning coastal scenery and beaches in the area.
In 2018 there was a new addition to Team Toprak. Amy and Yusuf had a son, Idris, who is already in training to follow in his father’s entrepreneurial footsteps.
