Client Testimonial

Georgia, at movingtobarcelona.com was an absolute fountain of knowledge when helping us find an apartment.  I thought we could do it ourselves, but once we had hired her to help, I realised that there is no way of doing it without knowing the language, the area, the ‘insider’s knowledge’.  I would totally recommend Georgia, she exceeded our expectations, and was great company, for the days that we were looking at apartments. – Mark & Livy
