Before embarking on a journey,
we always have doubts

Especially when it relates to a change of life, a change like the one you are about to initiate. Here the complication triples.

In this 200-page Guide, The secret of relocating to Madrid, you’ll find all the necessary information to plan your move to Madrid. With an easy-to-read design and charts and graphs to help you get organized.

Our Guide, The secret of relocating to Madrid, is updated every six months and whenever there is any relevant news.

It includes an index that guides you step by step throughout each phase. Describing in a clear and concise way the steps you must take, anticipating the problems that may arise and solving them, as well as telling you the local customs and how to successfully overcome each phase.

We provide you with the method we have used for the last 15 years, helping executives and their families to settle down in Madrid; and the professional connections we have worked with.

Also, it’s the way we’ve looked for (and found!) home in different cities of America, Europe and Asia.

This is the info you’ll find in the 3 essential topics that are expanded in the Guide:
