“Penelope is the type of person who cares for her clients. She has made it her mission to tend to our needs and our family has benefitted from her commitment. We trust her completely. We recommend her highly.”

“I moved to Spain with my family relocating for work. Penelope, the incredible women behind Mimoun, came upon our way and we felt ‘rescued’. The unknown became known and we no longer had to struggle with the language and culture barrier! She made sure we are left with no worries, looking for houses for us that will match exactly our needs. She looked for a school for the kids and arranged everything from A to Z. I believe what makes Mimoun different then the rest is the true expertise of people and the right touch for business!
Thank you from the bottom of our heart!”
Sharon Hershkovitz, Sitges, Barcelona
“As soon as I met Penelope and explained to her our requirements, she got to work. She collated all her database and came up with a selection of 4 properties that suited our needs. We visited all of them within 48 hours and one was perfect. She dealt with all the paperwork and made the whole experience run smoothly and efficiently. Once we were settled she followed up to check everything was satisfactory. A truly unique experience in Spain! I would highly recommend her services.”
Jane Rose, Monaco
“We contacted Penelope at Mimoun.es after trying and failing to find a house in Spain on our own. We had been researching property listing sites online for well over a month, but every time we found a house, it was gone by the time we contacted the agency. At this stage, we realised that it was important to have someone who lived in the area to help us find a house.
We contacted Penelope and she thoughtfully questioned us about our needs, our priorities, and our budget. She worked hard to find us a house, not just looking at online listings, but checking in with contacts throughout the area and personally visiting rental agencies. When we found a promising listing, Penelope was able to put a hold on the house until she was able to visit it and assess it in person. Penelope was then able to successfully negotiate a reasonable rate for the rental, as well as talking to the landlord to make sure that the house would be ready and in good condition for us to move in. All of this went far beyond our expectations.
It was such a relief to have someone on the ground looking out for us. Penelope went to the house regularly to oversee the work on the house – to make sure it was done right and ready in time. When we arrived, Penelope was waiting for us, having bought us some food and other kitchen necessities to help us settle in.
Over the next few weeks, Penelope continued to check in with us to make sure that things were going well. She thoughtfully answered questions on a variety of subjects and put us in touch with necessary contacts to solve many of our other needs.
We cannot recommend Penelope highly enough. She is thoughtful, considerate, and tireless in her efforts. She listens carefully to make sure she understands the needs of her clients and then works extremely hard to make sure that they are satisfied in every regard. If we had to do the whole thing over again, the only thing we would do differently is to call Mimoun much, much sooner.”

“I am very grateful for being introduced to the Mimoun Team. Having Mimoun as my agent there were no regrets. After being transferred to Barcelona and needed to find an apartment urgently, with specific requests, these were all met and in good timing. I highly recommend Mimoun for their outstanding service and professionalism.”
Adrian Vahle, South-Africa
“As CEO and Partner of one of the most recognised commercial real estate company in Barcelona and Madrid, I am very meticulous choosing my real estate partners.
Penelope has been a total professional representing my family very effectively when we bought our first house in Gavà. She is a very good listener who easily understood our family’s singularities. The finesse with which she handled all the details created a tranquil and rewarding buying experience for me and my family.”
Juan Antonio Gálvez, Barcelona
“Penelope is a warm-hearted, trustworthy and highly professional person that I blindly recommend to all my contacts and clients that need help in settling down in Catalunya. With a personal approach she and her team change the search for a new house, neighbourhood, school into a very pleasant one. One of my international clients asked me if I knew a trendy apartment in the city center of Barcelona. I passed this question to Penelope, who after having met my client, found out that quality of life for him was living close to nature and doing sports. He is now living in a nice apartment on the beach just outside Barcelona. Penelope has real interest in people and their family which, for me, makes Mimoun more than just a relocation company.”
Annemarie Roozendaal, Barcelona
“Peace of mind saving time and hassle. This is how I’d describe my personal experience with Mimoun. Cristina kindly looked after my needs and likes, she rapidly grasped the essence of my surfing preferences and lifestyle; it was on my first visit that I encountered a beautiful apartment right on the first line to the beach at Castelldefels.”
Julio Gómez, Finland
“I have had the help of Mimoun to rent my house during last summer. Our interlocutor took care of everything. She was very professional, proactive and as a result, my tenants were very happy during their stay. I strongly recommend Mimoun!”
Nicolas Burger, Paris
“Mimoun made our transition to Sitges, Spain feel like a home away from home. It is overwhelming to move to a new country let alone a new city or house. Penny meet us at the door to our apartment and made us feel like family instantly. The apartment exceeded our expectations and she even made sure we had some essentials in the refrigerator. Penny went above and beyond to help us with items that came up in the apartment. She helped translate and set up appointments without hesitation.
We highly recommend Mimoun to help with the transition of moving into Spain. I consider Penny not only a friend but also an advocate for us when we return. We will use her when we return in the fall. There are many loops and hoops to go through in Spain and she will help guide you through them.
Thank you Penny for not only becoming a friend but also part of our adventure!”
Ahna Jura & Family, Sitges
“Our experience with Mimoun has been absolutely fantastic. We purchased our dream property in Spain and it was accomplished through the hard work and dedication of Mimoun and their staff. Although we were halfway across the world during our purchase, Penelope provided critical details, photos, videos and other important facts about buying a property in Spain that made us comfortable and confident in our purchase. Thanks to Mimoun, we are now the proud owners of a wonderful property in Spain!”
Kevin and Nori Grimes, Sitges
“Penelope has been my guiding angel ever since I met her 9 months ago. Our paths crossed by chance when I was looking at a property in Sitges last June. I felt an immediate calmness and positivity coming from her and I knew straight away that this beautiful lady was exactly what I needed to make me and my family’s move to Spain a positive experience!
Penny was not involved in finding us a property, as at the moment we first met, we had already found the house we wanted to buy. But oh, there was so much more to do, which is where Penelope got to work. She held my hand throughout the moving process, introduced me to the football club for my son, helped me set-up wifi, internet, etc. at home. Helped dealing with the tedious task of transferring gas, electricity and water into our name. Anything related to a big house move became her project. But moreover, she became a trusted friend.
I can call upon her when my daughter is burning up with a fever of 40 degrees and I am about to have a panic attack. Penny was there and organised a doctor to come and visit the house within an hour. Because relocating is not only about finding a new house to live in, it’s about setting up a whole new life in a new country. At the moment Penny is advising me on how to set-up my business here in Spain. So you see, even after having lived here for 7 months, I still ask Penelope for help and guidance. So for us, for me, home away from home does not even do her justice. Its really home away from home with a full heart and plenty of care and attention.
So to anyone who is relocation to this part of the world and needs a guiding angel, you have found her! Don’t attempt to work with a large relocation company, choose Mimoun instead because nowhere else will you get such a personal and all-encompassing service and guidance than with Penelope!!”
