Hi, I'm Kat
I initially came to Barcelona on my own for work and had some help from colleagues in setting up bank accounts, organising my NIE, empadronamiento etc etc etc! It was a steep learning curve (especially with my very limited Spanish and non-existent Catalan).Read more
How can I help?
8 years in Barcelona, 1 wedding, 2 births, multiple house rentals and a mortgage later... I love this city and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, but I’m aware that it can be complicated to navigate a myriad of bureaucratic complexities which you encounter at every turn. Coming from a different culture can also be challenging at first but the rewards are huge if you can be guided through the first few weeks by someone who has been in the same position.Services
Kat has been incredible to our family as we transition into a new life in Barcelona. To say “we couldn’t do it without her” would be an understatement. She helped us navigate the school process to find our young son the perfect school. One thing that struck us is how much time she took to figure out what our family wants in an educational experience so we could find the best possible fit. She also helped us set up a bank account and held our hands through the very confusing TIE-card process. She is professional, organized, incredibly responsive, warm and was great with our son too. We highly recommend her.Linda
I think Kat might just be magic! She has gone above and beyond in making sure every detail in my flat purchase, renovation, school applications, the whole relocation process was taken care of. She took all the stress out of such a big move.
It was also pure joy to spend time with Kat, she is such a positive force of nature, I’m beyond grateful that she was recommended to me.Rebecca
The worst thing about international relocations, isn’t the removal, the documents, the stress….The worst thing about going to live in a different country is that there is one moment when you actually realize that you don’t know anybody. You feel a bit lost….even if you are the sunniest person on earth…you don’t know who to call or how to do things you usually master.
Well this is how Kat makes it different. She makes you feel at home. She makes you feel “safe and under control” in a certain way. Since we started our new bcn adventure she has always been here for me….I can’t thank her enough.
She was the first friendly face I met in bcn even before I arrived. She helped me out with my personal school paranoia, over a cup of coffee.
In marketing/modern terms I could say she is the Best customer care and relationship manager I have ever met.
She is the sort of professional you love to suggest to others, becouse she’s just worth it.
Thank you Kat! Your’re just great!!!!Florence
Before moving to Barcelona, I read many expat forums that provided advice about gaining the correct Spanish identification necessary to find work in the city. However, what I hadn’t accounted for was just how complicated the Spanish bureaucratic system could be and without a very good understanding of both Spanish and Catalan it became an impossible headache! This is when I was introduced or rather recommended to speak to Barcelona Lifestyle Solutions. In no time at all Kat had taken the reins and I am delighted to now have all that I need to stay and work in Barcelona. To say I would recommend Kat is an understatement – I would say her support and knowledge is essential when moving to this beautiful city!Louise
We had limited time to find both a school for our son and decide which area to live in Barcelona. Based on our Skype conversations with her, she devised a full itinerary for us to see a number of places that would have taken weeks for us to sort out ourselves.
Not only did Kat have perfect Spanish and great local knowledge, she also had relationships with key people at each school, great knowledge about each place and joined us for each visit to make sure that we asked the right questions.
Kat is the PERFECT person for this line of work, She is reliable, practical and thorough. But more than that she is cheerful, energetic, intuitive and clearly loves her work. We loved hanging out with her and were a little sad when the time came to an end.Ben
