He went on to secure the role of Managing Director at the Andalusian Tourist Board, where he was responsible for promoting and expanding the Andalusian brand across the world.
Following on from this Juan Jesús followed in his brother’s footsteps and decided to pursue a career in real estate. He is now working as the Managing Director of Business Development at FM Consulting Realty Group, and previously took on the roles of Vice-President of the Fortalia Investment Group, Vice-President of Marketing and Sales at FM “Your Vacation Resort” and an advisory role at the Mayor’s Office in Estepona, on matters such as tourism and investment.

Angela has helped to build a highly respected company with an excellent track record for quality, professionalism and service.
Having joined the group in 2001, María has worked her way up the ranks from Secretary to Sales Manager and ultimately Sales Director. Her hard work and results have earned her this career trajectory, as a result of which she knows the company like few others and is well versed in its operation, philosophy and the different specialist departments that comprise the FM Consulting group.
In addition her many years experience in the real estate market of the Costa del Sol have given her an in-depth understanding of the region’s property cycles, homes, residential areas and lifestyle options – all of which she shares with our clients.
Of Spanish and Swedish parents, Oke Norgren is in an ideal position to be in a service role, understanding as he does both what overseas visitors and homeowners look for and how to get things done in Spain. He is therefore the perfect person to be the Resort Director for Cortijo del Mar – our luxurious residential resort that combines home comfort with hotel-type service – as well as being part of the sales team.His experience in sales, public relations and customer service adds further to these credentials, as do his friendly, can-do attitude and language skills. At Cortijo del Mar he is part of an enthusiastic and service-oriented sales team that has acquired a reputation for being welcoming, accessible and always willing to help out, provide personal service and solve any problems that may arise. It is exactly this approach that fits within the FM Consulting philosophy of working.
Maria’s linguistic abilities have stood her in good stead in her sales career, enabling her not only to communicate fluently with people in Russian, Spanish and English, but also to correspond at the highest level. To her writing, translation and administrative skills she has added in-depth research into the European real estate markets before moving on to sales.
This strong professional background gives her the excellent technical grounding for her job, which also draws greatly on her personable manner and her love for her adopted home, Marbella. In Maria we have someone who looks after our clients well, using the right blend of efficiency, professionalism, enthusiasm and a friendly, service-driven approach to make her achieve results whilst making it look easy.
Ángeles Mendoza Paredes
Ángeles brings experience and a proven track record of service-based results to our sales team. In addition to a great deal of experience in Marbella real estate her skills also include marketing affinity and the ability to see the bigger picture and think strategically.

Fluency in Spanish and English are another strength, as is the desire to learn and develop in new roles. Ángeles fits all these descriptions!
Efficient and cheerful, Diana is the friendly face at reception for clients and peers visiting FM’s offices in Nueva Andalucía, Marbella. Her can-do attitude, work ethic and organisational skills make her the perfect person to also support the company principals, which she does with a true talent for multi-tasking.
In addition she is an excellent communicator – not only because she commands five languages, but also from a natural ability to interact with colleagues, suppliers and clients. Diana’s customer service approach to her work fits right in with the FM Consulting Group’s philosophy, for whom she has become a highly valued mainstay in administration and sales support.
