10 Questions to Pablo Molinero, Operations Manager at Engel & Völkers Spain, Portugal and Andorra

- Pablo Molinero, Operations Manager at Engel & Völkers Spain, Portugal and Andorra

Pablo Molinero, Operations Manager at Engel & Völkers Spain, Portugal and Andorra answers:

1) A book

"1984" by George Orwell. I read this book when I was a teenager and I loved it. I have yet to reread it again.

2) A phrase

"Everything will be fine." It was the "leitmotiv" that was printed on some T-shirts in the first architecture and graphic design studio I worked. At the end of the day, if you think about it ... it's a great phrase!

3) A place

Tibidabo Avenue in Barcelona, ​​with its beautiful villas and the legendary blue tram that goes up the mountain. I used to love walking there when I was on my way to my grandparents' house.

4) A song

"Wonderwall" by Oasis. I can listen to it again and again. I will never get tired of this song. Pure excellence.

5) A sport

For me golf has all the qualities of a good challenge: complex techniques, maximum discipline and constant improvement. It is a sport that offers the possibility of playing again and again until you get better at it and every golf course is a new challenge to overcome.

6) A movie

The Talented Mr. Ripley. A true masterpiece; 10 for photography. Impressive to watch the performance of the four "monsters" of Hollywood in their early life.

7) A destination

Menorca at the beginning or end of summer. It is a perfect island for spending a week as a couple and / or with friends. If you can, leave the mobile phone as far away as possible.

8) A favourite restaurant / food

In Montjuïc's "Terraza Martínez", you have to order the "Casserole Martínez": lobster, monkfish, potatoes and eggs. Perfect! Want to try it?

9) Your perfect plan

Tennis in the morning, a whole bottle of vermouth to discuss the game, then eat something outdoors and finally Sobremesa. 

10) A person you admire

They are two, sorry ... My grandparents: Belén (from my father's side) and Emilio (from my mother's side). Both of them were great examples of overcoming life's challenges and were role models in my childhood. I owe them everything and I hope to achieve half of what they did.

Property on offer in Spain

In recent years, the Spanish property market has become a sector particularly valued by international investors, and it's no surprise. Between 2009 and 2014, property prices in Spain underwent notable changes, and as a result properties are currently being sold at very competitive prices. This situation applies to houses both for sale and to let, as well as to more luxurious properties, making Spain a practically unique case in Europe. The best investment possibilities can be found in Spain's high-end properties.

The high-end sector is the most interesting to the international investor. Many people the world over consider property in Spain, especially in the larger cities, to be some of the best patrimonial assets in Europe (a good example would be a luxury attic in Madrid or Barcelona). And as for the exclusively residential market, those who wish to have a second home in Spain, or buy a main house can also benefit from this situation. Logically, all of these benefits also reach the proprietors who wish to sell their houses.

Living and working in Spain

The quality of life enjoyed in Spain is the result of a unique combination of climatic, geographic, and of course, human factors. Living in Spain is an option that is contemplated by more foreigners every day, and buying a house is the first step towards that. Acclimatisation tends to be fast, and those who move in with the objective of developing business ventures can also count on easier administration when buying a house. Spain's high quality property market paves the way forward.

The type of property which one moves into in Spain will obviously depend on the newcomer's aspirations. Those who head to Spain, whether to live or to work, can enjoy the wonderful surroundings, either in an apartment with a view (of the beach, mountains or the city) or in a house right on the coast. For more information, it can be very useful to seek the advice of an estate agent in Spain, who will analyse the most interesting offers based on the prospective buyer's criteria.

Selling your house in Spain

Selling your house is another option for foreigners who live in Spain. Whether you are coming to the end of your stay in Spain or you just want to get rid of one asset in particular, the services of a reliable and trustworthy Spanish estate agent are essential. These professionals will examine the qualities of the villas in Spain that they want to commercialise, reaching the most advantageous sales agreements possible and getting the luxury properties in question on the market. Little wonder: if anything indicates the current context of the market it's that the role of the agent is basically to close a good sales agreement.

How to arrive in and travel through Spain

Alongside the properties that Spain has available, the country also offers areas of great patrimonial and natural interest. It's worth highlighting the excellent connections by land, sea and air to all the European capitals such as London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Brussels, and Geneva, and many other European cities are less than a three-hour journey from the main Spanish airports. Those who travel to Spain have airports at their disposal not only in the main cities but also in the majority of the provinces. Another alternative to get around the country is via the complete train network that, on a smaller scale, consists of commuter trains to the inland regions, creating easy access to almost any town and property in Spain.
