GRØN & ANDERSEN
In Fuengirola’s new Scandinavian Consulting Agency “Grøn & Andersen ” is always a Dane as ‘ll take your phone. It’s only a detail , but it embodies the whole idea.
The partners Lena Grøn and Heidi S. Andersen has merged a quarter century of experience in advising on Spanish conditions. They have made it through another local company Cyclo , but Grøn & Andersen has come into the world to provide a specialized service to the Scandinavian group of customers.
” In Cyclo we were eventually 20 employees. The major working language was Spanish and English, and often causes people not all forward when there is an English speaking at the other end of the telephone, “says Heidi S.Andersen.
She studied as an economist at the Aarhus School of Business , and two years later
she was from the start with Cyclo and it was founded in 1996.
” Here we are only three employees, but we are working with Scandinavians . We sit down with them , and over a cup of coffee and orders the things in our own way , “adds Lena Grøn , who has lived most of life in Spain and has studied Immigration laws. In 2004 she got a job in Cyclo , and four years later, she was co-owner. As a child of a Danish – Norwegian marriage she talks two Scandinavian languages.
Timed consists of the Spanish secretary / assistant Eva Canestro who speaks fluent English. Eva who studied as a secretary and speaks fluent English , is in fact selected from the same philosophy that language and mentality wise communicates best with his own . When the others have prepared the client’s papers , it is Eva who ‘ll take out to the authorities and take care of the practical with them.
Lena and Heidi old customers are used to a full service on all matters, when it comes to buying a house, stay and work in Spain and the partners still offers this, because Grøn & Andersen collaborates with lawyers who specialize in different areas. Can the case not be solved by the small company will it enter other specialists with whom they work with. The new consulting agency acts as a Scandinavian consulting agency that coordinates the interdisciplinary collaboration and assists customers in Danish throughout the process.
People get answers to all questions concerning life in Spain – just the
remember to ask . It is perhaps many times the real problem , and this is wath Grøn & Andersen want to prevent.
“I often hear people complain because a lawyer or real estate agent did not explain some things that are aimportant matter in Spain, but not in Scandinavia. People become victims of their own ignorance , “says Heidi Andersen. ” Afterwards, you can not plead ignorance, you are required to know the message , ” warns Lena Grøn.
These problems are easier to anticipate on a consultancy with Scandinavian focus. Be sent information on new laws and regulations to all who have been provided with a record as a result of relocation or house purchase . Other things come automatically on the table during a chitchat in another context : ” Do you and are thinking of selling your Spanish property ? Then I might add that in a year it will be much cheaper for tax purposes because you pass an age limit . It is the advantage of the workflow in Green & Andersen, “says Heidi Andersen.
