The story behind Ahead
In 2007, Spain reaches the summit of the real estate ‘feast’; everything is possible, everybody ‘does in’ real estate, banks finance up to 120% of the needed funding, prices go through the sky, Spain is ranked as thé most attractive real estate country around the world. But that story did not have a happy end, the hangover was severe and the crisis hit the market hard.
At the moment the situation has changed and for that reason, Ahead was built as an answer to a strong demand for a professional, trustworthy and transparent way of purchasing real estate in Barcelona. We respond to a new need and demand, always thinking about the benefit of the buyer or the one who is looking for a place.
Ahead has one goal: help people find the place they are looking for, whether that is a pied-à-terre, an investment property or a place that you can call home.
I am a Belgian national who moved to Barcelona in 2001. I arrived at the start of summer, and I instantly fell in love with this city. Today, 15 years later, I want to share my love for this city. In addition, I am a licensed Spanish real estate broker with a Masters in Real Estate Development and Administration at the University of Barcelona. That is why I started Ahead.
I know Barcelona inside and out – literally. By managing the city’s first 100% bicycle delivery service for more than 10 years, I roamed the streets of Barcelona and visited an innumerable number of buildings, both office and private.
This experience has provided me with a unique perspective on Barcelona’s urban landscape and its socio-demographic heartbeat, which no other realtor in this city can match. Leveraging this advantage, I target selected neighbourhoods, city pockets and new developments in which location is the prime driver.
Since 2012 I have successfully closed deals for both foreign and local clients alike. In addition to brokering real estate contracts, Ahead seeks to convert apartments and buildings, combining traditional elements and materials with modern and smart interior design principles.
