In 2019, we have bought a house in Luz via Marcelaproperties. We would like to thank Anja Scheck once again for the truly outstanding work she has done. We felt well looked after by her throughout and appreciate very much that her good and committed work (including 100% handling of all communication with the seller up to the handing over of the keys) kept the effort for us to a minimum. We can and will gladly recommend you at any time and will be happy to come back to you should we need the services of an estate agent again.
Not long ago I was visiting an architect in Lagos, I saw in my e-mails Info from Marcela Properties, a very interesting offer for a property in a resort in Lagos. I immediately called Ms. Anja Scheck to arrange a viewing. It makes it possible since the time was pressing for the return flight, that we had an appointment for a viewing the next noon. Great spontaneous use. Many thanks to Ms. Anja Scheck
We bought a beautiful piece of land near Salema. The process looks a bit difficult at the beginning, but thanks to the perseverance of Ms. Anja Scheck / Marcela Propiedades, we were successful in the end. We are now planning for our house. Thank you and see you soon, the Rieswick family
We met Patrick Bennett to purchase a house in Lagos. Patrick proved to be a helpful and attentive person to what our demands and expectations were. In a short time, he found the house suitable for our needs and was an excellent mediator.
I used Marcela Properties to buy a villa in Carrapateira, due to COVID I was not able to go to Portugal during the purchase.
Helen managed the whole process perfectly, she was always prompt to reply and helped us with detailed digital records of the property.
If you are in the market to buy/sell/anything in between and are unsure of how to navigate the market and with whom, your search ends here. We had the good fortune to be connected with Patrick of Marcela Properties last year, right before the face of the world changed under this terrible pandemic.
Purchasing land in another country in which you don't speak the language is hard enough without the added stress of global disaster and I cannot imagine better hands to have been in. The level of professionalism, honesty, and genuine drive to help at all steps of the process was astounding. Everyone was accessible and extremely knowledgable. It was so helpful to be able to pop on a call and get extremely clear answers and next steps. When one party would go on vacation, handoff and continued coordination of our purchase was seamless and made the work on our end next to nothing.
We recommend them highly and exclusively to anyone considering embarking on this type of journey. Between him and Graeme, we understood how the process worked and felt at ease to ask for help and clarification each step of the way. On this note, we would also like to call out our absolutely remarkable solicitor, Dr. Francisco Moreira Braga. To be honest, we were at first hesitant to use a solicitor at the recommendation of the real estate agents we had just met (no fault of their own), as we had been warned this was not in our best interest. However, that is the beauty of Marcela Properties- everything was in our best interest and we are grateful for this! We cannot recommend Francisco highly enough nor say enough good things about him. He made everything absolutely a breeze and consistently went above and beyond to make this process painless and pleasant. Francisco was among many other top-notch recommendations such as currency converting, etc as well (on this note, take every recommendation Patrick gives you- the time and effort he is saving you is awesome! )
Reflecting on the process, and having worked with a handful of other realtors in the area and beyond, there is no doubt that this group of individuals is absolutely exceptional in conduct and are an absolute pleasure to work with. We truly have only positive things to say about our experience and wish all our business transactions were this easy! We didn't expect business connections to offer such helpful and insightful advice as if we were close friends and are grateful to have had such an exceptional group of individuals in our corner. Many warm thanks to all!
