"We are forever grateful that we had the opportunity to work with Mercedes Salvador when relocating from the US to Spain, as she helped our family find the perfect place to call 'home'!

"Mercedes & team were a pleasure to engage and help plan my relocation to Barcelona. Smart, focused, and easy to work with are hallmark characteristics for Mercedes and her entire team" Steve Gatto, US (Professional)






She has spent a significant portion of her life living in the United States with two little kids and her husband. During that time, and with only a little knowledge of English, she moved around extensively, and had her share of pitfalls, and little dramas. Throughout these experiences, her primary goal was always to find a place her family could truly call home, and shine.  And now, back in Barcelona, as Catalans say: "Roda el mon i torna al born" (no matter how far one may travel or explore, eventually they will come back to their roots or their place of origin. El Born is a neighborhood of Barcelona) she is ready to help you to get the best experience.
