Quote marksI arrived in Barcelona with my son on the 20th September. Neither of us speak Spanish. Georgia was booked out for the following two weeks, but we had downloaded her guide to finding a property in Barcelona. What a find that was!!  It is without a doubt the most comprehensive, accurate, practical and clearly written guide I have ever come across.

By following her guide and despite being told by the estate agents that it was the worst week of the year to be looking, we located a flat by Wednesday, in the area that my son had selected.  Georgia, generously provided us with a translation of the lease at a nominal cost. – Marie

Quote marksThank you for writing your book (for me it has been great value for money as you suggested it might), and for your website. I arrived here in Barcelona last Wednesday, bought your book soon after, and by Saturday had found somewhere to rent in a very nice part of town, and signed an agreement.

At present, I’m working out the hoops to jump through in organising my resident’s permit, phones and bank accounts. Your information has been very helpful, not only in finding my way around, but in letting me know what needs to be done, and I would recommend you to anyone who wanted to come here. Nice work! And thank you again. – Bill
