Rimontgó is a family-run business specialising in the exclusive marketing of high-end residential properties in Spain.

Founded in 1959, it is one of the real estate companies with the greatest prestige and recognition, both among its clients and its professional colleagues.

Rimontgó has had a major role in the creation and development of national and international companies and alliances, such as Nac Premier in Spain; a founding member of EREN in 2004 – The European Real Estate Network – with headquarters in London; on the presidency of the international advisory board of The Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, Luxury Portfolio, based in Chicago, and Christie’s International Real Estate, where it has been a member of its international advisory board from 2005 to 2019. In all of them, Rimontgó has worked to always provide a better service to its clients.

Rimontgó is a proud founding partner of Forbes Global Properties, which is the result of the alliance of some of the world’s most prestigious real estate companies and Forbes, the most internationally recognised business communication company.

Rimontgó’s leadership positions in the bodies of these international real estate networks give Rimontgó a competitive advantage that allows it to offer its clients an unparalleled superlative service.

Over the past 60 years, Rimontgó has helped thousands of clients. Rimontgó’s team stands out for its moral values and is appreciated for its confidentiality in the use of information, its professional excellence and its totally client-focused service.

Rimontgó serves clients throughout Spain from its offices in Madrid, Valencia and Jávea. Rimontgó can recommend clients to work with any of its partners at EREN or Forbes, whom it knows and trusts, with the same peace of mind as when the work is carried out at Rimontgó.

Since 1959, with the same values

The history of Rimontgó began in Jávea, on the Costa Blanca in Alicante, in 1959, in the hands of José Ribes Bas Sr. and his son, José Ribes Buigues, founders of the company.

The 1960s saw the growth of the company, thanks to the acquisition of land for the construction and marketing of developments on the Costa Blanca, with a special interest in foreign clients.

A symbol of Rimontgó’s international vocation is exemplified in the person of José Ribes Buigues, who at the beginning of the 70’s travelled 3,000 km at the wheel of a SEAT 850 to reach Sweden. His aim, which he achieved, was to convince Scandinavian citizens of the benefits of the Costa Blanca, armed only with a few photographs and maps. Ribes returned to Jávea with several signed contracts in the glove compartment of his SEAT.

This interest in the internationalisation of the company increased during the 1980s, when a new generation of Ribes, made up of brothers Antonio, José and Eduardo, trained abroad and then went on to manage the company with even more distant horizons.

Rimontgó’s anniversary book

From the 1990s onwards, Rimontgó expands its brand in the international market thanks to successive alliances with exclusive real estate giants such as Sotheby’s and Christie’s. In 2004 it promoted the founding of EREN – The European Real Estate Network – and in 2019 it contributed to the founding of FORBES Global Properties.

Rimontgó works directly with properties in the main markets in Spain: Madrid; Marbella / Costa del Sol; Valencia; Jávea / Costa Blanca; Barcelona / Costa Brava; Mallorca / Balearic Islands. As a founding partner of EREN and FORBES Global Properties, Rimontgó has an unrivalled network of professionals in Europe, the United States and Australia who share the same principles and values that founded the company several decades ago.
