Currency Specialists – How do they fit into the buying or selling property mix

Currency Specialists have become a vital element in the process of either buying or selling a international property.

As their name suggests their sole focus is to specialise in buying or selling currency. They are able to get rates of exchange much better than a individual would achieve through the banks. Often no fees or transfer fees are payable.
