“Professional service but very friendly. We did not hesitate for 1 second that we wanted to use the service of AHEAD”

Looking to buy an investment property in Barcelona? A buy-to-let? But unsure of where is the best investment?

We spoke to our buy-to-let clients Valerie and Didier about their experience when using AHEAD’s Personal Property Finder Service, a trusted, customised solution which meets the budgets and requirements of every client.

  1. Hello, Welcome Valerie, can you tell us a little bit about your background? What is your profession? 

Me and my husband Didier live in Belgium. We both work as freelancers. He is a carpenter and I have my hairdressing salon. 

  1. Why did you choose to buy a house in Spain and more specifically in Barcelona?

Didier fell in love with Barcelona since he was 12years old when his parents took him to Barcelona’s football pitch – Camp Nou. On one of our first holidays Didier took me to Barcelona, his favourite City in the world and I also fell in love. The combination of the city, sea, culture and great food. Just perfect!

  1. More specifically – why do you like this specific area? What is the neighbourhood like?

When we started searching we were looking for something near the beach and the city. Steven told us that Clot is the combination near to everything we like, but still a laid back neighbourhood not as busy as the City-Centre. 

  1. Where were you living in Barcelona before you started looking for a property to buy? 

We still live in Belgium, Barcelona is our second home. A place to escape from our busy life.

  1. How did you get to know about AHEAD Services? 

On our search for a property we asked advice on another Belgium friend who lives in Barcelona. He told us about Steven and AHEAD studio.

  1. Why did you use AHEAD’s Property Services instead of finding the property online yourselves? 

First we started searching online ourself but because we live in Belgium the distance is always a barrier we had to fly several times and cost us a lot of time and money. 

  1. How was the first meeting with AHEAD? 

We immediately had a good feeling about it. Professional service but very friendly. We did not hesitate for 1 second that we wanted to use the service of AHEAD

  1. Would you recommend the AHEAD services to others? 

Without a doubt!
