They are investing in Spanish Real Estate with our assistance
We met Paul on a “Second Home Exhibition” in The Netherlands. He knows the market very well and understands the specific needs of foreigners. We visited the different areas of the city and fell in love with an apartment in the old town. Paul suggested to have another look at nighttime, as he regarded the area as a bit rough. We did so, and found out that this was NOT our area. We continued our search together and we found a loft-type apartment at the beach area (Barceloneta). VDH assisted us during the whole process, including a complete refurbishment project and Paul has become a personal friend. Very efficient, all-round service. Highly recommendable!
We found the services of VDH through the internet. Within hours they sent us a complete report with the “ins & outs” of the local market and a quote of the proposed services. The day afterwards we asked Paul to accompany us with our search for a small palace in the centre of Barcelona, as we had very little time. We found a unique apartment, in downtown BCN, did the negotiations together, and had a fantastic deal! Wow, things go different in Spain.
The company, and specially Paul are highly recommendable and offered their service network. They took care of everything, including signing the purchase Deed with a power of attorney. With such an important decision, it felt very safe to have someone you could trust, especially if you live so far away.
We contacted Paul after the very positive experience of my parents with him, a couple of years earlier, when they bought a villa in Tossa de Mar (Costa Brava). In our case, it was a complicated (legal) process and Paul was always there to support us.
We felt very comfortable having someone with his experience, working on our behalf. Many times, people underestimate the difficulties of buying a home abroad.
It´s not just the language problem, but there are also many cultural differences, between “northern and southern Europe”.
Don't waste your time
