  1. Hello,
    My husband and I want to buy a vacation home, possibly for future retirement as well. We are looking in Granada, Granada. We have found several properties on Idealista.com we would love to see when we arrive in early June…assuming they are still available. Regardless, we want to find an English speaking Realtor who can guide us through the looking and buying process. We live in the US and have been visiting Spain the last several summers.

    How can I get the name, email, website, phone number of someone in Granada that can help?


  2. Be very, very wary of realtors, Spanish, English or otherwise. You are better off slowing down, finding a good attorney who speaks English who is completely independent of real estate sales. I am from the US and speak from 27 years experience in Portugal and Spain.
