Julia lives in Spain, where she works as a foreign property agent. She regularly introduces her clients to TorFX.

How long have you lived and worked in Spain?

"I moved here seven years ago, and started my business in 2001."

What are the benefits of recommending your clients to TorFX?

"Most of my clients are British second home buyers, and many don't have prior experience with foreign exchange. They need the expert guidance that the bank can't provide, and they also need to feel secure and comfortable with their transaction. TorFX take a lot of the headache out of the process, and give my clients better exchange rates than they would get from the bank."

What are the benefits to your business?

"I earn commission on any clients introduced, and this is paid at the end of each month, so not only do my clients save money and get a superior service, but the business also benefits from an extra source of income."

What foreign currency knowledge do I need?

TorFX trained me enough to be able to talk to my client about the market and the advantages of using TorFX rather than a bank. Then all I do is pass over the client’s background information and currency requirements to the account manager at TorFX who take it from there.

What are your top tips for anyone thinking about buying in Spain?

  • Get a good local lawyer.
  • Consider renting first to make sure you like the area.
  • If you're buying off-plan, allow for delays.
