URBAN INPUT was co-founded by Marc Cabarrocas, Rafael López - Palacios and Howard Pierce in 2004, as a local real estate asset manager focusing on office developments, site assembly and land transformation in Barcelona.
In 2008, the company pivoted to assisting foreign capital in their investment strategies across Spain.
In this context, they met Mario Chisholm, who was working for London-based investment funds looking at the Spanish market. In a turbulent, post-financial crisis market environment with mispriced value and risk and complicated transactional landscape, Mario quickly realized he needed to find reliable and capable local partners rather than transactions.
URBAN INPUT stood out as the most reliable, capable and honest after a thorough process.
