This was our second trip to Portugal viewing properties, and it was in total contrast to our first trip, with another company whom we shall not name for obvious reasons.
We first contacted Laura via email, expressing interest in a property which you had for sale. It soon became apparent that you also had other properties available, which we were also interested in.
We then contacted Laura, who was most helpful, and between us, we put together a portfolio of properties that we wanted to view.
We arrived in Portugal and within minutes, we were at ease with Laura, who was very friendly and at the same time, very professional.
During our whole stay, not once did she try and force any property upon us, she simply showed us around every property which we had agreed to view, prior to arriving in Portugal.
This was a total contrast to our previous visit, where we were only shown properties that we way above our budget.
During the week that we spent with Laura, she felt more like our friend than a salesperson.
She is a total credit to your company, and as a direct result of her professionalism, we have now purchased an apartment at the Belmar Spa Beach Resort. We cannot praise her highly enough.
Please feel free, to post this email on any internet site that you deem fit, should you wish to do so. In the meantime, we will not hesitate to recommend your company and also Laura, to all of our friends and family who may be thinking of purchasing property in Portugal.
The whole process was very satisfactory.Margarida Hilgers offered an efficient, professional service, working with us and for us all the way.We were kept informed of developments and all formalities were completed expertly, and with a real personal touch.We would thoroughly recommend Margarida Hilgers at Casas do Barlavento to anyone buying or selling a property on the western Algarve.
Casas do Barlavento recently completed the sale of our apartment in Lagos and we would like to say that we count ourselves very fortunate to have been in the capable and caring hands of Margarida Hilgers.
Margarida's knowledge and expertise, together with her high level of commitment to us as clients gave us total confidence in the process of sale, which is quite different in Portugal from that in England.
We would like to thank her for all her hard work and have no hesitation in recommending her to future vendors.
We have been working with Paul and Casas do Barlavento for 2 years now and going backwards and forwards to the Estrela da Luz resort in Luz for 5-6 years, we are glad to say that he showed us the apartment of our dreams and we have just completed on the sale. We are so thankful to Paul and his team for the help they given us and we look forward to the many holidays to come at the resort. Thanks Paul good job”.. “We are happy to recommend Paul and CDB to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Algarve
We bought the plot 61 in Porto Dona Maria in April 2010.
We would recommend our agent, Margarida Hilgers at Casas do Barlavento for efficient, accommodating and professional service offered with a personal touch! She provided us with reliable references to local suppliers and legal services.
The whole process was extremely satisfactory & we would have no hesitation in recommending Ana Paula Fonseca to any owner wanting to sell their property.
We had our apartment in Albardeira, Lagos on the market with several agents in the area & Ana Paula Fonseca was the only agent who acted rapidly, kept us regularly in touch with developments & when a prospective buyer was found she amazingly completed all the necessary paperwork, visits to the lawyer for the purchaser & most importantly completed the necessary procedures to commit the purchaser to buying within days.
