Homegest made what could have been an impossible situation, effortless. They helped us purchase a stunning apartment in Portugal--from a distance of thousands of miles--all by working "virtually", months before we were able to see it in person. During the lockdown Cristina researched the apartments, made in-person visits, and gave us honest and straightforward assessments of each property. Homegest was with us every step of the way, negotiating with the seller, through the "closing deed" process, and continuing to assist us with managing the property today. Whenever we have a question about how things work in Portugal, we contact Homegest. As a result, we've recommended them, without hesitation, to countless friends and family.
I recommend Cristina and Michel without hesitation. On our first visit to Portugal, we saw many properties in Lisbon and Cascais - all of them worthwhile. They both know so much about the neighborhoods and best investment choices. We decided to buy an off-plan property in a great neighborhood in Lisbon. Throughout the course of the purchase, the construction and a few challenges, Cristina and Michel were communicative and helpful. I trust them 100%.
I’m grateful to Cristina and Michel - they are a huge reason why I chose to move to Portugal - and I am thrilled to live here in a wonderful property 5 years after we met!
They deliver what they promise...trust, knowledge, reliability and hard work on behalf of clients. They found our Golden Visa home in 2017 and now represent me in selling a tourism property.
Buying in another country always comes with its risks and without a local team who protects your interests, the chances of success are greatly diminished. Both Cristina and Michel provided us an unparalleled property experience. Cristina quickly understood the kind of property and location we wanted. We found the property we wanted on the third day of our trip. She put us in contact with the most professional, bankers, lawyers and accountants to complete the purchase prior to the golden visa requirements changing. Michel managed the total renovation process for us. He helped us with material selection and organized all of the professionals for a top quality renovation. I can't recommend them enough. If you choose to work with this team, you can expect honesty, integrity and knowledge. Thank you Cristina and Michel for assisting and guiding us through our property acquisition.
Accuracy, clarity, efficiency, friendliness, honesty, integrity, knowledge, patience, professionalism, straightforwardness, trustworthiness, understanding - are but some of the characteristics that distinguish the HOMEGEST team. Their support to us was seamless, facilitating every step of our property purchase, which we initiated and concluded virtually because of the travel restrictions. We are thankful to them for giving us a unique experience in real estate.
I would like to give my following testimony following our acquisition of our property in Portugal in Tras Do Outeiro.
Indeed, it is by chance that we found this property and it is thanks to you that we were able to acquire it.
Without your incredible ability to negotiate for us, we would never have made this acquisition!
You have been very loyal to us, certainly, but also to the sellers.
Then , we know the progress, we have naturally entrusted you with the sale of this property, and also the acquisition of the following property!
Our confidence in you is TOTAL, ABSOLUTE AND WITHOUT RESERVATION….
Thanks again for everything.
I strongly recommend Homegest Portugal.
With all due respect.
