What our clients say

  • Ideal and Jose have made it as stress free as they can!

    Patty Farmer,  
    My broker Jose and the entire mortgage and finance team at Ideal Homes has provided a step-by-step blueprint to help them, help me, in securing the very best terms for the mortgage on my new home in Adega.  Although this process is never a barrel of joy--either here, in the States, nor actually any place in the world--Ideal and Jose have made it as stress free as they can. So I send a heartfelt thank-you for providing the means to a new home filled with new friends

  • I wish to make a 'RAVE' Review about Real Estate Agent, Sandy Barreiros ***** 5/5

    Ingrid Gale-Olson,  
    She works for IDEAL Homes Portugal & I have purchased a 2 Bedroom Unit in the Santa Maria II Development in Lagos that is slated for completion in 2023.  First of all, I was contacting her from Bellingham, Washington so there was a 9 hour time difference & Sandy was so accommodating & flexible making herself available to talk to me at any time. Secondly, she is one of the friendliest & most personable Real Estate Agents I have ever worked with. There was no 'Sales Pitch', no pressure & no Agenda. She was just helpful, informative, genuine, funny & kind. I trusted her. It helped that she was 'American' & had lived in Philadelphia for 18 years. But she seems to love Portugal & the Algarve region in particular & she exudes this. She answered the many questions that I had about the area. I bought the property in February 2021 but we have kept in touch this whole time. When I came to Lagos this Summer, of course we met up & I even got to meet her lovely Father! She has introduced me to several members of her Team & I've even been able to meet the Developer of the Project plus the Interior Designer @ Abode who will help me decorate my Condo once it is completed. In closing, Sandy is not just an accomplished Realtor, she has become my friend!
  • Sasha has been my eyes and ears from far away!

    Tom Enagonio,  
    I would like to compliment Sasha Sharpley for incredible professionalism in his role as my Real Estate representative in Portugal. I purchased an apartment in a development that is under construction but should soon be completed. I am buying remotely from another country and have never purchased property in Portugal before. So needless to say, I had no knowledge to guide me. Sasha has been by my side the entire time. What really sets Sasha apart from other real estate personnel is that even after the sale, he has continued a great level of engagement. He has kept me updated on construction progress and has also connected me to an incredible range of professionals in all the necessary aspects of completing the mortgage and closing process. So from initial showing, through purchase negotiation and agreement, through the mortgage and closing process, Sasha has been my eyes and ears from far away. I am extremely grateful for his professionalism and care. Further, I can attest that Sasha is extremely well regarded within his company which again speaks to his commitment and ability.
  • Sasha guided us well and completely!

    William Hutchinson,  
    Sasha guided us well and completely remotely through our purchase of two apartments in Lagos this year.  He patiently explained to us the advantages of each one and answered our questions.  He supplied us with architectural drawings and walked us through the rationale of why rooms were placed where they were.  He negotiated some improvements to the apartments to meet our particular needs, including a car charging outlet in the parking spot for one apartment, where the building was not set up for car chargers.  Also, he showed us an apartment that cost more than we were prepared to spend.  When we told him we did not want it, he did not push back but moved on.
