Raf Jacobs

CEO and founder of INSPIRE Property Experts Spain

My Story

Raf Jacobs is a long-term Barcelona resident. While originally from Belgium, he started his professional life working in the start-up world in Munich in the year 2000. In 2001 he relocated to Barcelona, where -before taking the entrepreneurial path- he first developed his career at Accenture, a tier-1 international management consulting firm.

Raf is the founder and CEO of INSPIRE Property Experts, a real estate buyer agent and investment advisory firm that helps you navigate the Spanish property jungle. What most people don ́t know is that the Spanish real estate sector is very poorly regulated, which can have severe consequences for international buyers and sellers. Raf ́s team of property finders, lawyers, architects, deal makers, mortgage specialists and even builders, helps to prevent mistakes and to get you better deals. The extensive network that we have developed over the years also gives us access to off-market properties.

Raf is known for his YouTube real estate channel (over 800.000 viewers) with advice and recommendations for international buyers and investors. He is also a lecturer at the Real Estate Executive Master Program at the University of Barcelona. He is frequently consulted by the media for his opinion and market predictions. He has been -as well as several of INSPIRE ́s customers- featured by the New York Times. The Barcelona City Council has appointed Raf as the go-to property expert for the international community in and around Barcelona.
