Currency Matters: Ensuring money transaction is done safely and economically

Currency Matters (£- $- €) Many clients we have had over the past years have had the need to buy or sell euros. A buyer from the USA, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, the UK and many other countries will need to change their national currency into euros when buying. Similarly, vendors from these countries and others may wish to change euros back into their national currency once they sell their property in Sotogrande. Most commonly currency can be changed by banks or companies dedicated to the business of forex (foreign exchange).

Clients mostly have three criteria when they choose who will assist them with the transaction. Security, competitiveness and personal service. Transacting large amounts of money is something we do seldom, and ensuring it is done safely and economically is very important. Having someone hold your hand and with whom you feel safe is a big plus.

Just before we went into lockdown, we managed to complete on a sale here in Sotogrande. It was gratifying to receive a thank you note from the clients.

Hello Charlie & Fernando

Somewhat belated I know, but it cannot pass without saying thank you to you both.

The transfer was seamless and problem free. A special thank you to Fernando for his attention to detail, and will always remember our high speed journey from notary to bank – but we got there !

Thanks again to you both.
