Promptly resolve problems that arise in the search and purchase process. Non-Spaniards are at a natural disadvantage in Spain with the language, contracts, and strange home rules. We carefully explain the details in each step of the process. If we can't get straight answers from the agent, we advise you to pass. It happens.
We offer the services required to buy and own the property. In addition, we work with a mortgage specialist for financing, a local architect for property inspections, and a Spanish tax attorney for tax issues. We also partner with a money transfer expert if necessary. Having one contact makes things a lot easier.
We work with Ms. Bozena Brunowska of Mortgage Direct. Bozena is a UK-qualified financial advisor where she lived for 20 years. She has worked in accounting, retail banking and holds a CeMAP mortgage qualification. Ms. Brunowska can provide a mortgage quote within 24 hours and pre-approval while you are still searching. In 2017, she bought a small farm near Barcelona.

Barcelona offers a high quality of life with a variety of people and activities.
Located on the Mediterranean Sea with warm summers, little rain, and mild winters, you can enjoy the outdoors year-round.
Barcelona is home to people from all over the world, creating an exciting and tolerant environment.
From the medieval Gothic Quarter to the urban Eixample district to the sunny beach area to the friendly, lower-priced zones on the city’s outskirts, there’s a neighborhood for everyone.
Barcelona has the most robust economy in Spain and, compared to other large cities, housing prices are very reasonable. As a result, demand for property is constant, and construction is booming.
No car needed
We get around by foot, bike, or the underground metro. Not having to spend in car gas is truly a relief!
Situated on the Mediterranean Coast, it’s minutes by train to several beach towns and two hours to France and the ski slopes of the Pyrenees Mountains.
