Monapart is a real estate company founded in 2010. Our mission is to ensure that the most beautiful and special homes change hands easily, joyously and securely.
We are committed to meeting the responsibilities that come with accompanying people on their journey of buying, selling or renting a home. For this reason, all of our agents know that clients are more important than sales, and that honesty is non-negotiable.
We would like our real estate work to always be accompanied by the most interesting people and initiatives occurring within / above / below / opposite / beside the properties which we sell or rent. This is why we also talk about other things in addition to homes. We therefore educate ourselves, give our opinions, laugh, cooperate, and lead the way so that after our input in the real estate sector, nothing will ever be the same again.
So, let's now imagine that you want to sell, buy, or rent a home. What would you like your agent to do for you throughout the process? What should they know? How should they act? How would you like to feel by their side?
At Monapart we do not sell or rent homes in which we ourselves would not live. Similarly, we only feel at ease among people who are able to give their best at all times, and to everyone. Here they are:
Jaime was born in Valladolid, studied Fine Arts in Cuenca, went to Lapland as part of the Erasmus programme, and now lives in Barcelona, where he is sometimes called Jaume. With so much travelling under his belt, it is no surprise that he speaks six languages! He also studied Performing Arts and Music; he has a weakness for opera and Yoko Ono.
He is full of surprises, and once went to a shop to buy himself a guitar, only to leave with an accordion! If one day he decides to get a tattoo, it would most likely be of the Hanging Houses of Cuenca. He is a cheese and salted licorice enthusiast, and whenever possible, he escapes to the countryside.jaimecoponjaimecoponLinkedinjaime.firstname.lastname@example.org
Jaume says that a good approach to everything you set out to do in life, is that it ought to be different, consistent, and full of quality. And that's exactly what has brought him to Monapart.
He has a degree in Journalism, a Master's in Graphic Communication, and has specialized in graphic design within the real estate sector for several years, many of which were spent in Panama. But Jaume actually has the soul of a musician...Autobahn by Kraftwerk marks a before and after, and at the age of 25 he bought his own piano, which he loves, but also comes to blows with often.
He is a Barça fan, following in his grandfather's footsteps.@jaumeporto@jaumeportoLinkedinjaume.email@example.com
Olga has a Law Degree, but is an editor by trade, a bookstore owner by vocation, and an acting entrepreneur. She studied music for over 10 years, and is determined to resume her studies. And she is also intent on practicing yoga, sewing her own clothes, reading the entire literary canon, traveling around the world, and spending more time with her husband and two children.
On rainy days, “La Sala” has the unusual habit of taking a bath, eating fried eggs, and listening to Nina Simone. If she lived in London, her cholesterol would be through the roof... She never says no to a cocktail and she permanently lives in a New York State of Mind.@olgasala_@olgasala_Linkedinolga@monapart.com
In this profession it is essential to be a people person, to have good listening skills, empathy, optimism, and a touch of madness. Juan Carlos ticks all of these boxes. He is the archetypal Manchegan man: good-natured, easy-going and honest, like a 21st century Sancho Panza but with a touch of Quijote.
He's a tireless worker, but when he is not working he likes to run, travel, and learn English. He keeps himself busy with books, documentaries, music, TV series, and travelling (lots of travelling!). However, there is nowhere like home. In a town in La Mancha, whose name I do not wish to recall...Linkedinjuancarlos.firstname.lastname@example.org
Not many people can say that they have done a week´s horse ride through the Alpujarras. It hurts just to write it. But this isn't all that Arantxa has done... she is also an ardent skier and snowboarder, and enjoys bungee jumping and other extreme sports. It is safe to say that she is not a quiet kind of person.
She has always worked in the public eye, which fits with her extroverted and cheerful character. There are those who still remember her screams from the stands during the U2 concert on their ´The Joshua Tree´ tour. This is a record which she listens to over and over again, and is one which her two treasures, Germán and Marta, already know off by heart.Linkedinarantxa.email@example.com
Elena is energy in its human form, and isn't afraid of anything. Boom! But that´s what she is like, enterprising and curious about life. As a child she spent her days singing, and years later, she went to England for 4 months and ended up staying for 4 years… She devours books, goes to the cinema whenever she can, sings in a choir, plays the piano, and reads the newspapers every single morning. She says that she is addicted to the news, so she meditates and tries to control herself.
She has always worked in sales, selling everything from air transport to radio spots. A few years ago she chose to move into the real estate sector, and now Monapart Alicante is now lucky to have her on board. Boomfirstname.lastname@example.orgLinkedinelena.email@example.com
In life you have to be proactive, and when this means beautifying your surroundings and helping others, Veronica knows a thing or two. She studied Computer Engineering, but this did not quite suit her, she then set up her own NGO to support artisans around the world, but that did not work out either… Vero knows that mistakes always bring about new opportunities, and between one thing and another, life brought her a child and the decision to go back to her beloved Alicantian sea.
As an expert in home staging in the real estate sector, Veronica turns empty houses into ready to live in homes. And after more than 10 years working alone, she has also now found her own home in Monapart.@veronicaiborraLinkedinveronica.firstname.lastname@example.org
Victor has been a technical architect and a building engineer for 20 years, although he would not have minded being a psychologist either. Nothing escapes his eyes, and he is always scrutinizing and analyzing what's going on around him… It is no wonder that his bedside books are William Golding´s The Lord of the Flies, and Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now. In short, he thinks too much, except when he is listening to music, playing tennis, relaxing with yoga, meditating, or walking his dog Togo.
His future plans include spending more time with his family, and learning to play the guitar or the flamenco ´cajón´.victormhdeziLinkedinvictor.email@example.com
Ana is pure rock'n'roll. Her motto in life is to be happy and make others happy, and anyone who has had the good fortune of having her around, knows that in this, she outdoes many.
She gets up at the crack of dawn every day to go running, because she says that is how she deals with her worries. But it´s not all about running for her. Ana has taken classes in bachata, swing, country, salsa...And this year she starts tap dancing lessons.
This lively and dynamic spirit runs the the streets of Barcelona to help you find your dream home. If you come across her, call her Campderrock.Linkedinana.firstname.lastname@example.org
Andrea is the youngest of the team, but this youth should not get you distracted ... It takes guts to be able to deal with the rental management department, a responsibility that requires precision, left hand, and resilience to tons.
If Andrea did not come to Monapart every day, she would probably be on an enological trip to Bordeaux combining two of her great passions: traveling and wine. Although she confesses another ... she is an unconditional fan of Harry Potter, and still (little angel) is waiting for her letter from Hogwarts.@email@example.com@monapart.com
Blanca is a lawyer with extensive experience in real estate law. But unlike the “typical lawyer”, there is nothing dull or grey about her. She is actually a redhead ;D and she loves colours and everything to do with painting, illustration, design, decoration, fashion, cinema... Speaking of cinema, her favourite movie is Denys Arcand´s Les invasions barbares, a drama with a touch of comedy that won an Oscar in 2004 for best foreign film.
She says that she is at her happiest underwater, and that watching fish chases away all of her ills. But if you sing "City of stars, are you shining just for me" to her, this will also have a similar effect.Linkedinblanca.firstname.lastname@example.org
Eduard Solé has a degree in Communication Sciences and has an MBA from ESADE. He spends his days talking on the phone, but also has countless hobbies and finds it hard to accept that there isn´t time for everything in life (he runs regularly, but also cooks, writes songs, reads, does yoga, plays ping pong…).
He is an entrepreneur, idealist, and as he himself acknowledges, a bit of a daredevil. That´s why he dreams of travelling to remote places and living unlikely adventures worthy of Indiana Jones when he is older. Although he is a bit moody at times, let's not forget that he was raised in the drylands.eduardsoleaeduardsoleaLinkedineduard@monapart.com
Fabian is Argentinian, and on the very day of his birth, there were municipal elections in a turbulent political context. By contrast, he is a very calm guy and always gives off good vibes.
He is an architect and has worked both in collaboration and in his own office, his forte being the refurbishment of buildings. He has been a real estate consultant for some years now, and he is great at it because he is deserving of the confidence he inspires. Which is a lot.
When he is not working, you will see him walking along the beach of Barcelona, or swimming if the weather is nice. That is, of course, if there is no Barça match on.Linkedinfabian.email@example.com
Guido was born in the United Kingdom, and is of British-Panamanian origin. He grew up in Madrid until he was 16, and then lived in Palencia (where cold was invented!) for 2 years, playing volleyball for the national U19 team. He graduated with a degree in Architecture from ETSAM, and has worked all over the world: Madrid, Lisbon, the Canary Islands, London, Panama, Moscow… and as of 2012 in Barcelona, the city where he has seen his two children grow up.
Guidín (an ironic nickname because he is very tall) loves the beach, and escapes to Barceloneta whenever he can to skate to the rhythm of Cuban salsa and tropical house. He also does yoga, reads, and goes to live music venues. The Rolling Stones´Tattoo You is his all-time favourite album.Linkedininfo.firstname.lastname@example.org
After graduating in Foreign Trade, and as a senior customs technician, Hernán worked as a financial salesman for a decade, but one day he felt the call of the real estate sector (oh that call!) and graduated as a real estate agent to then open his own agency in Argentina, which is where he is from.
He was born in Rosario, loves reggae, supports Newell's Old Boys, and LOVES football. This also sounds a lot like Messi, but do not be misled… Because if what you want is to sell your house, pass the ball to Hernán and he won´t miss the target.Linkedinhernan.email@example.com
Ingrid has been fascinated by interior design ever since she was a child, when she could not help but sneak into all of the apartments that were under construction. It was written in the stars that she would study decoration and interior design, and that her life would always be linked to the world of housing.
In her free time, she takes long walks in the mountains, where she skies in the winter months. She also reads, cooks, listens to music and watches films. She confesses that she can't help but eat her daughter's sweets, and no matter how well they are hidden, Ingrid always ends up finding them...@ingrid_angueraLinkediningrid.firstname.lastname@example.org
An architect, urban planner, and an MBA from ESADE, José Luis says he has never done anything so well as playing as an indoor football goalkeeper. But, listen, being one of Monapart’s founding partners isn´t bad either...
He has no hobbies, and the little free time he has is devoted to his family and friends, with whom he plays football every Monday (and they call him Mosignor?). His dreams for the future include learning to climb, going for a run twice a week, writing a poetry book, inventing new businesses, and founding an alternative education school. He is clearly an optimist.jl_echeverriajl_echeverriaLinkedinjoseluis@monapart.com
If Montse were not an architect, she would surely do one of her two passions for a living: shoes or DIY. It´s such an odd combination, right? Well, we have an explanation, at least for the first one. Ever since she saw The Wizard of Oz she has never stopped dreaming about those ruby slippers.
Her curly red hair, her freckles, and her lively green eyes match perfectly with her personality: astute, cheerful, daring and resolute. Mons is always in a good mood, especially on rainy days with a good crime novel in hand or watching Downton Abbey.montsepla_montsepla_Linkedinmontse@monapart.com
“When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too”. This is a quote from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Oriol's favourite book. Thanks to this book, Oriol has learned the importance of meditating, dreaming, reflecting, and writing.
This is his reflective side...But don´t be fooled! Like a good Gemini, he also has a crazier and more extroverted side to him. So Oriol never says no to a good party, he and has spent years learning the ins and outs of stock trading and doing extreme sports. And since risk is a part of the real estate profession, he is the perfect Street Agent.@oriolesparzaLinkedinoriol.email@example.com
Patricia joins Monapart Barcelona´s sales department after many years of commercial experience in the children's products sector. She graduated in ADE at Universitat de Barcelona, was an auditor at Price Waterhouse Coopers, and project manager at Samsung... perhaps she never suspected that she would end up in the real estate sector, but the truth is that she enjoys working in the industry.
She lives alone with her three children and that hardly leaves her any free time. Of the little that she has, she dedicates it to learning to play the guitar, playing water sports, dancing, yoga, going to the cinema, listening to music and meeting with her friends, her most precious treasure. They are the only ones who call her Pebe.Linkedinpatricia.firstname.lastname@example.org
They say that people from Bilbao are born wherever they please, so Cristina chose to be born there. Not everyone has that privilege... She studied business and management, and knows all the ins and outs of the real estate sector, where she has worked in for more than 20 years.
She loves music, and has a somewhat eclectic taste, as she enjoys both Eres tú by Mocedades and September by Earth, Wind & Fire. And she always always enjoys listening to Michael Jackson. Her hobbies are also very varied too: running, swimming, cycling, painting, reading, going to the cinema...and cooking. Her family and friends say her quince jam and spaghetti squash are the best in the world. You have to try them.@email@example.com@monapart.com
Being an architect, and having a master's in Real Estate Studies, Josep Maria´s passion for sustainable, efficient and customizable homes is in his blood. He has devoted a long period of his professional career to such homes, with his own company Invoci, and now also with Monapart Girona.
When Pitu, as his family and friends call him, is not working, he loves to cook and enjoys a nice glass of wine while Tomatito and Michel Camilo´s Spain Again play in the background. What a great album. He makes the most of going on long bike rides to help digest his food, and to mull over ways to transform the construction sector, favouring more efficient and sustainable building works...And so it´s back to the drawing board.@monapart@monapartgironaLinkedinjosepmaria.firstname.lastname@example.org
With a degree in Architecture from ETSAB, and a postgraduate degree in Architecture and Sustainability, Míriam has devoted a large part of her professional career to carrying out commissions from private clients within the residential sector. So she knows how to listen, understand, respond, and meet the expectations of her clients, which are very high when they concern important life choices. She was doing this for many years from her own architectural studio, and now Monapart Girona also has the good fortune of having her on board.
Those who know her well say that Miriam has the virtue of always seeing the positive side of life. Surely this is exactly what helps her get up at 6am every day to take her dog for a walk…@monapart@monapartgironaLinkedinmiriam.email@example.com
Mariana joins the Monapart Madrid team to add that much needed dose of spice to everything. And no kidding, 'cause as a good Mexican, she knows what spicy really means.
She graduated in Mexico as an industrial designer, in Object and Furnisher Design, and eventually graduated with a postgraduate degree in Business Management and Administration from la Universidad de Barcelona.
Listening to The Fabulous Cadillacs always puts a smile on her face, because it reminds her of one of the best stages of her life. She has spent 10 years in Madrid, but travels and plays outdoor sports whenever she can; the more adrenaline she gets from them, the better (it's the spice in her again…).Linkedinmariana.firstname.lastname@example.org
A graduate in Journalism, with a master's degree in Marketing and Sales Management, and having taken courses in digital marketing, business intelligence and customer relationship management, Nieves (Archi to her friends) has decided to leave a long career in advertising agencies behind her to open a Monapart agency in the districts of Chamberí and Salamanca in Madrid.
An insatiable reader of historical novels, she says that she is hooked on watching home decor and furniture restoration videos. There is no weekend that she doesn't go to the cinema, and there is no Christmas that she doesn't watch Love Actually! And all of this, of course, with a good 70% dark chocolate. To be expected…@monapart@narchillaLinkedinnieves.email@example.com
Life is a tom, tom, tombola... A trip to Mallorca in the 90s, bleached hair (we won´t say from whom), two partners and a child (now there are four kids). Hit the fast-forward button and María joins Monapart. It all sounds crazy, but everything is true... and very cool.
With over 20 years of experience in the real estate sector, María is proactive, resolute and committed. And she enjoys it! She isn't the couch potato sort of person. There are always things to do! A book, a TV series, or cooking the hundredth tarte tatin of her life (the best this side of the Mississippi). She transmits joy wherever she goes and she always sees the good side of things. And if these things are a little geeky, she's in!Linkedinmaria.firstname.lastname@example.org
Vicky was born and raised in a small neighborhood, she spent the best summers of her life in a small village in Tarragona, and will someday will travel around the world with her two children. She appreciates the little things in life, but dreams big, like the sea she wakes up to every morning and where she kitesurfs whenever she has the chance.
She has devoted her professional life to Architecture, and her passion for beautiful homes leaves her devouring thousands of home decor magazines while sipping her world-famous Caipiroska cocktails.@monapart@monaparttgnLinkedinvictoria.email@example.com
