Spectacular 19th Century palace in the Maresme
At some point in all our adult lives we have to find somewhere to live, an apartment, a house or another alternative; whether it be to buy or to rent, to share, live alone or to live with our families. It’s often a stressful time, a time when getting good advice from a Real Estate expert is of the utmost importance, whether selling, buying, letting or renting. Olga Brisa is a Barcelona based property agent founder of Quanima, specialists in the exclusive and personalized service of Real Estate. This nomadic entrepreneur is inspired by her own peripatetic lifestyle that provides her with the invaluable first hand experience with which she advises her clients.
Since her first beginnings with the sector in 2011 when Olga Brisa purchased her first property and after refurbishing it sold it for a profit in order to reinvest in a second property until she founded Quanimia in 2017. Nowadays the company operates in Barcelona, Valencia, Majorca and growing steadily within Andalusia (Malaga and Marbella). Olga describes the differentiating factor as the client experience, for Quanima the client always comes first, before the property, “At Quanima we differentiate ourselves in that the most valuable thing for us is not the property but the client, who is both the seller and the buyer. A business philosophy that we have in our DNA, together with our personnel. In a sector with a large intrusion and in which the only important thing is to close a sale, with Quanima we want to differentiate ourselves by reaching the sale after a providing a quality service.” The company offers home staging advice, provides a chauffeur as well as a translation service to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Recenly Quanima has also started to offer employees of large companies a relocation service to the cities where it operates.
Quanima Real Estate has a wide rang of luxurious properties within its portfolio, a sector that it specialises. One of these is an extraordinary 19th Century palace located in the Maresme, just outside Barcelona.
