My name is Víctor Álvarez (1978) born in Barcelona. I studied law and after that I did a study for private detective at the university in Barcelona. I worked for years as a private detective until I changed course and started volunteering at an organic farm in Asturias where I met Ellen.
We have seen many places until we finally started a project as Agencia Inmobiliaria Rural (rural estate agent). For many people our work has made their dream a reality and has also given us the opportunity to exploit our qualities. Moreover, it was very nice to discover our strength as a team.
Life has forced us to reinvent ourselves, so we have shaped ruralpropertyspain.com. A new project that combines the original idea of “simplelifemagalia” with online services for the international client who is looking for a property elsewhere in Spain.
I am passionate about being able to work as a lawyer specialized in real estate, an ambition that I have always cherished. Our goal is to continue to offer a quality service, so that you as a buyer can enjoy your time in Spain carefree!
My name is Ellen Pannekeet (1985) born in Noord-Scharwoude. After finishing high school I studied Media and Entertainment Management in Haarlem. Once I graduated, I went to Spain and stayed there unexpectedly. There I met Víctor on an organic farm, who just like me, did volunteer work.
After half a year we decided to travel through Spain together, until we found a beautiful village called Maella in northeastern Spain and started a rural project there, poner el huevo, they would say in Spanish.
We are working on this project with great enthusiasm for nine years now. The positive experiences of our customers and the assistance with often major renovations make our work very special. We work together with enthusiastic people for enthusiastic people; a perfect combination.
I am very excited about this innovative project and the new website. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as we did creating it. A clear and well-arranged site, where you can find exactly what you need when you are looking for a little paradise in Spain!
