Guiding you to your perfect property in Paradise!

– Monica Silverstrand, Independent Buyer’s Agent

monica silverstrand
Marbella Vision was established in 2013 by Swedish singer, Monica Silverstrand. Our mission is to help you find your very own place here in Paradise. We have a track record of hundreds of happy buyers up to date. 
Our success is due to our ability to listen and understand your specific needs, and stand by your side offering outstanding services — before, during and after your purchase. 
Remember, there is no such thing as SOLE AGENCY in Spain. ONE good and dedicated agent, such as Marbella Vision, can access and show you every property available for you! Whoever listed it.
This will save you the aggravation of contacting currently over 1,500 real estate agents on the Coast! We don’t mind if you are just browsing or planning for next month or next year! It all starts with a call…
Our service is free to buyers (the sellers pay the commission) and we aim to go that extra mile to help you!
We would love for you to join our happy family of homeowners under the Spanish sun.

Our offer

Let Marbella Vision help you find your own place in the sun. We know the various areas along the coast, we are updated on price levels and have teamed up with the most solid lawyers (both sellers and buyers have one each), we can advise and help you with everything from start to finish – and afterwards! 

But above all, your viewing trip will be a pleasant and efficient one, so that you also have time to relax while you’re here. Because Marbella Vision is not tied to any particular, major real estate agency, we can work with any agency on the coast and, therefore, have access to ALL properties on the market. These are gathered in a special database that only professional brokers have access to. Everything works a bit differently in Spain, as you will notice with time.

Viewing Properties

You will enjoy a nice day or two of viewings, during which we will have time to see a handful properties. The commission is paid by the seller to the real estate agency that listed the object, which will share that 50/50 with us. If you buy from us, our services won’t cost you a dime! The only thing we ask is that you use us exclusively.



You see, we spend a many hours and weeks searching for the right properties for you, sending you pdf’s to evaluate etc., and since ALL realtors have access to ALL LISTED properties, you would just be wasting lots of time if you shop around with several people from different agencies. Stay with us and we will make it happen.


Buying a Property

Once we find the right property for you, and a price has been set and accepted by the vendor, the next step is to deposit the downpayment to your lawyers’ account. A reservation contract is drawn up and signed by both parties.
Right now, the running extra costs added are 7% transfer tax, 1% lawyer cost, 1%stamp duty. So, calculate a surcharge of 10% and you'll be pleasantly surprised in the end. This amount is not possible to estimate exactly in advance because some fees are variable. This example applies to resale properties. If you buy a new build, you will end up with an additional 12-13%.


Now your lawyer can start doing the due diligence, the legal searches. This contract is the guarantee for you as a buyer that the vendor will not show the property to anybody else during the period stated in the contract, which is normally 30 days.

On completion

Normally, most buyers have signed a power-of-attorney so that the lawyer can apply for your Spanish Social Security numbers (NIE), open a bank account from which all monthly property costs will be automatically withdrawn, apply for contract of electricity and water, etc. This way, you won’t even have to be present to sign the title deed. Just let us know when you plan to come, and we will meet up with the keys. Most buyers prefer to keep the title deed and all the original documents at the lawyers office in their safe vault. But of course, you can choose to keep the documents wherever you want them.

"I can highly recommend Monica"

Buying a property in a foreign country was a big step for me. I discovered that I knew very little about how to go about it. It became clear that much more is required from a real estate agent than just finding various prospectus. How to finance? What does the law require? Which authorities must be dealt with? And much, much more. Monica has knowledge of all this, she speaks Spanish and has a network of professional local resources that took us from start to finish. I felt safe throughout the whole experience. Now, many years later, we still meet her and get help when needed. I can highly recommend Monica.

We have bought properties from Monica Silverstrand in Marbella twice and are very satisfied. Monica is extremely professional, efficient and service-minded, and has a large network of contacts on Costa del Sol after many years of being a broker here. But above all, she is always straightforward and honest when showing properties, she does not sugarcoat everything like many estate agents here do. Her warm and pleasant personality means that you will not only be buying your dream home from Monica – you also get a friend for life. You can call her at any time and know that she will always be there for you straight away.
"We found our gem"

My wife and I have used many Real Estate Agents during our years to find properties in various countries and when looking to find an apartment in Marbella where our past experience was very limited, we found Monica through a friend’s recommendation. What we found was a very experienced buyer’s agent which was a concept that we found very attractive. We received a lot of possible prospects from Monica before going to Marbella, which gave us a perfect opportunity to get to know the market ahead of time to our visit to Marbella. Once in Marbella, we found our gem almost right away and after a couple of years down here, we are very happy that we found Monica and Marbella Vision – this made our search process so much easier for us.

In Sweden there is Hemnet, here we have Monica.

Although we have lived permanently here in Spain for 19 years, we realized that we needed help when we were looking for a new home. We knew which area we wanted to move to, but did we want a villa, townhouse or an apartment? In Sweden there is Hemnet, here we have Monica. She booked all the viewings of properties she thought might interest us. In the end, she found our dream home and we are so happy and satisfied with our choice. Thanks for your invaluable help, Monica.
