Hi, I’m Pierre, GuiriGuide contributor since 2011 & Moving2Madrid founder.
I’m looking for a Madrid Home Hunter, another Madrid fan like me to help international people find their perfect home here.
I’m looking for someone who is focused on helping foreigners move to Madrid zen. You are a guiri, you have been through the process, and know how difficult it can be to find a place and move here. And you love Madrid. You have been here a few years and plan to stay, and love discovering new neighborhoods, new places here.
Helping people move here includes trust more than anything else. You should be a people person, good at establishing trust, managing expectations and communicating your love for Madrid.
No, you do not need to have any specific experience or education. I have worked with a 20-something undergrad, a housewife or a former Accenture consultant.
I will teach how we ensure our clients move to Madrid zen and show our unique way of working.
Therefore, rather than experience, you will need to show you are a continuous learner, always looking to improve your skills.
You should be great at listening and understanding people, and not selling, but helping them take a decision.
You should be great at creating trust over email, Skype and in person. This is the key of our business.
You should be great at figuring out which words or phrases make people genuinely trust you instead of giving a corporate image. We believe the right words at the right time can make all the difference.
This is not just a job for a people person – you will be also expected to complete rigorous property searches to ensure we find the best home for our clients.
We take pride in always making sure we find the best for our clients, by understand their lifestyle, then translating into Madrid terms, and finally finding the best solution in the Madrid market.
As a small business, you will also have freedom on the mid-term to dedicate your time to whatever new project you want to launch, and will be involved in other new projects, such as a Moving2Madrid Guide, our manifesto, a new website to compare international schools in Spain …
I need someone proactive and independent to take over the house hunting by september and stay on the long term so I can focus on growing the business.
I don’t believe it’s possible. Change my mind. Convert me.
Can you do it?
What we offer
We believe in international people, especially the crazy ones who believe in Madrid, like you or me.
The way we help is by keeping it personal, challenging how things are done in Madrid real estate and by measuring results in terms of happiness.
We just happen to help international people move here via services and this website.
Interested ? Keep on reading.
You work from where you want.
You work when you want.
The only time limits are the viewing days with clients, whole or half day, and the team meetings.
We know happy team members make happy clients and make me happy. We work to live, not the other way around.
We have an office in Madrid centre, but no one cares. Our clients want to see Madrid. I help them move then talking to them via video calls before they move, and then by showing them Madrid, the authentic way.
You will lead clients from zero to hero, understanding their lifestyle and translating this into Madrid terms making sure you find the best home for them.
Most of the times you will be exchanging emails with clients, thinking everytime how you can strengthen the trust you have from the client.
For viewing days with clients, you will need to be 100% focused on the client, and make sure everything goes without a glitch.
As for remuneration, our objective is for you to become a long-term team member with an indefinite contract.
To reach this point, as we do not trust resumes, we will train you, test you with one client, and then go from there. We will train you in all aspects of the business, teach you how to craft effective mail communication to establish trust, and teach you the method to lead discussions.
The first step will be to be paid a good share of revenues of each client you help move to Madrid, as an autonomo/freelancer.
Then from there, if there is enough business, we will switch to a guaranteed monthly invoice, then an indefinite contract.
I don’t believe in resumes. I focus much more on your writing skills and how you establish trust with me with an email, as we have to do with clients. Do send it, but focus on the cover letter.
Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling me why you’re the one. How you tell us is up to you.
I love to see specific examples of your work on the web, writing you might have done, even your resume, if tailored to this offer.
This is a chance to do the best work of your career and live the lifestyle who have always wanted.
Work from home, define your own schedule, be yourself when talking to clients, learn communication & business skills directly from me.
I know you’re out there. Get in touch.
