Hello Bonjour

Seeking respecful & non-condescending advices/opinions/references. I am here to listen and learn.

We would like to buy a condo in Caracas as a longterm investment (Chacao, Las Mercedes, Altamira, La Castellana..) or Margarita Island. One of us is a dual citizen (CA/VE) and I lived/worked extensively abroad (Pakistan-India border, Mexico, Africa,...). I believe Venezuela is a wonderful/strong country in a deep crisis... Am aware of the pain experience by the population and the security issues....

"As of after August 18th 2017", we need any unbiased factual based updates,comments+detailed/explainations, non fearmongering, (kind of where, who, why, how, feasable or not, too dangerous, ...)

Can anyone refer in PM (name/address/email/phone number) a good reputable venezuelian corporate lawyer/law firm, accountant, realtor, international banquer/broker...

Cordialement John
