    Thank you very much Andriy for your efforts in ensuring that the sale of our house in Praia da Luz was a success.  

    We very much appreciated your advice and guidance from the very beginning of the process when we first contacted you.  Because of COVID travel restrictions Susan and I could not travel to Portugal and our only contact with you was by phone.  Despite not having personal contact with you, your very professional, constructive and friendly approach at all times allowed us to have full confidence in your advice and your dealings on our behalf with potential buyers, the Condominium Management Company and our solicitor in Lagos.

    The very smooth and efficient process of the sale is a great credit to you.

    Very best wishes.

    Excellent service, we were dealing with Elisabete and could not have dealt with a better person - trustworthy, responsive, and very easy to deal with. Would have no hesitation in recommending her.

    Dear Mrs. Scheck,

    Thank you very much for supporting us so well with the property search and purchase in Sagres.

    The fact that you had us on your radar for such a long time brought us the right property in Portugal.

    In fact, we had not expected to find anything suitable in terms of size and budget - and all of a sudden you got back to us with the property that suited us. Perfect!

    Your recommendation regarding the local lawyer also helped us enormously.

    Everything was quick, uncomplicated, and transparent. Thank you very much!

    Best regards from Germany

    Dear Anja

    This short note to tell you that I was very satisfied with your services, your availability and the speed with which you made yourself available to me to solve the small problems regarding this purchase.

    Your kindness, your immediate understanding, your professionalism meant that in a very short time I found the apartment that best suited my wishes.

    Thank you once again Anja and meeting you again will always be a pleasure.

    Isabel Marques of Marcela Propriedades Lagos Marina office was recommended to us when we travelled to Portugal last year to find a property.  As a realtor (estate agent) for many years myself, I had pretty high expectations of whoever we were going to be working with.  We had also read some less-than-flattering comments about local agents online.    Isabel however met all of our expectations – she is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and kind and speaks fluent English as well as Portuguese and Dutch.  And  maybe other languages too!  Buying in a foreign country can be challenging but Isabel helped us understand the process and everything went smoothly.  With some agents, as soon as you’ve signed the contract they’re gone, but not Isabel, who gives great after-sales service too.  We plan to rent our place when we’re not using it and when I asked her how I could get professional quality photos done in order to market it, she immediately said she would take them, which she did.  If you’re looking to buy a property in the western Algarve, you can’t do better than to work with Isabel.

    Dear Andriy,
    We would like to write and thank you for the excellent service you have provided together with Marcela Properties.
    Thanks to you we are the very proud owners of our lovely Marina apartment.
    Throughout the search and purchase process, you have been diligent, professional, most polite and always very quick to respond to any questions.
    You listened carefully to our search criteria and showed us examples of what we were looking for each time and then months later when we were not in Portugal you had the foresight to send through the details for the perfect apartment.
    We were able to make an offer based on a virtual viewing - your video skills were excellent and you showed great attention to detail and reassured us at every step so that we knew exactly where the property was, the state of the interior and appliances, the position of the sun, the condominium costs and the sale process.
    You and your team worked hard to negotiate very diplomatically with the vendors to achieve an accepted offer and to progress the sale process at every moment.
    Thank you very much Andriy for all your care and attention - we are very grateful.
    We look forward to working with you in the future.
    Best wishes,
