What benefit do I have to work with a personal advisor?

The acquisition of a property by a personal adviser allows a “balanced” negotiation. In fact, the real estate agent defends the interests of his client, the seller, whereas, I, your personal advisor, I defend exclusively your interests as a buyer.

Not having an advisor is like “negotiating with the opposing lawyer or going to a lawsuit without a lawyer”.

Nearly half my clients are non-resident Spaniards or foreigners. About 80% of the operations that I accompany succeed.
