Hamzeh, Armenia, March 2018

It was my great pleasure to work with you and La Vida team including Catarina... All went well so far and hope we would conclude the investment next month as planned; I also wish the investment will serve the main purpose of having a citizenship at the end. Honestly, I was satisfied at all levels including legal, contractual, property purchase & price, payment terms, relationship with Counsel, Local Banking and local coordinator

Faisal, UAE, February 2017

I did a lot of research before making contact with La Vida when I was looking to buy an apartment in Spain. I have to say that I made the right choice because they were extremely helpful and professional. It certainly made the buying process far simpler than it could have been. I also want to pay special thanks to Lizzie Edwards of La Vida who was absolutely fantastic throughout and couldn’t do enough to help. I would certainly recommend La Vida to my friends.
