About us

CLEARWATER PRIVATE INVESTMENT is a highly specialized firm that occupies a unique niche within the Iberian real estate market. 

Our professionals average twenty years of experience. 

Our business model is based on the purchase of  real estate assets requiring the application ofvalue-added measures to permit the later sale of these same assets at considerably higher prices. We manage these assets to meet the specific demands of the market within the real estate cycle. 

For this reason, Clearwater does not focus exclusively on one type of real estate asset. We apply our time-tested, knowledge-basedmethodology to any type of real estate asset in Spain or Portugal.
