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 coordinatorFaisal, 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.John Vicars, UK, January 2015
