About Home Costa Brava

Home Costa Brava is an international real estate agency registered with the College of Agents in Girona (API nº A13216) and the Register of Agents of Catalonia (AICAT nº 5421). In Catalonia it is mandatory to be registered as a realtor. In addition, it is important to you that you engage a certified real estate agent for the sale or purchase of your home. The professional services of the API realtors give you more guarantee of transparency and security. Besides, we have legal liability insurance and a legal consultancy. 

How did Home Costa Brava start? For my study at the HEAO in the Netherlands, I did half year internship in Madrid in 1989. That is why my enthusiasm for Spain was born. Madrid is a beautiful city, however, lies in the interior and the summers are very hot and the winters are cold. I was curious about the coast, so during my study I went 2 months to do holiday work on the Costa Brava. The result was that my enthusiasm was even greater and I was more attracted to Spain. In 2000 I had the opportunity to work at a Dutch real estate agency in Sant Feliu de Guíxols. I would go and try for a year. That year has become 21 years now and I have built my life here with my Catalan husband and our children.

Until the year 2008 I worked for the Dutch real estate agent and then I started my own business. In the past years, I have acquired a lot of knowledge and experience in legal and financial matters. But that’s not all. I have many contacts in terms of reliable brokers, contractors, notaries, banks, lawyers, plumbers, gardeners, etc. Contacts you need to enjoy your second home without worrying.

With the experience of Home Costa Brava, I hope that we can properly and reliably be of service to you.
