What our clients say

  • A Very Happy Client!!!

    Alix Tichelman
    Came over on an inspection visit in April. After contacting several real estate agents in The Algarve, Ideal Homes was by far the most professional, approachable and reliable company I found. I felt assured I was in the best hands taking my first scary steps to buying a home overseas. I felt that Ideal Homes held my hand through every step of the way and all the services were under one roof, from finance to currency exchange to buying furniture for my new home. I want to say a massive thank you to Chris and the whole team for all your help. I am now happily settled in my new home in Lagos and I am very happy. Thank you Alix xxx

    We had a great weekend with John, Portugal is beautiful. John was amazing, very informative and he shown us some great properties. Thanks for organising such a lovely weekend, John is a credit to Ideal Homes - no pressure or hard selling just a nice relaxed and informative weekend. John has a wealth of knowledge of Portugal and the properties he shown us, he spent a lot of time showing us the local area to the properties and the property we loved he gave us lots of information. Thanks to your whole team.

    Like many others searching for a property we contacted dozens of estate agents in Portugal looking for our Ideal Home. We had been through the process of searching in earnest a couple of years ago but were not ready to buy. We sent an email to Ideal Homes in Portugal with a list of our requirements and Janet followed up immediately with a phone call to find out more. From thereon in it was somewhat of a whirlwind. All very efficient, no hard sell and always friendly even out of UK office hours. I spoke with Chris, the owner of the company for guidance and he could not have been more helpful. Janet arranged a viewing trip for us which was new to us but we thought it was an excellent way of seeing a vast number of properties and to be chauffeured around with no stress. We were met at the airport by Erwin who took us to our hotel which was very clean, friendly and not at all expensive. Ideal Homes paid for the accommodation and breakfast. The next day we were met by Erwin and Janet at 10am sharp and we viewed a variety of properties all within our price range and all relevant. We saw our dream home on the first day. However all the viewings went smoothly and Erwin and Janet not only showed us the properties but took time to show us the areas. We made an offer on our first day which was accepted – to our surprise. Ideal Homes also arranged for us to meet a lawyer for advice and it was this lawyer we used in the purchase four weeks later. Ideal Homes also offer a currency service. At first we were sceptical but on looking at their rates, they beat everyone we had dealt with in our previous business and property purchasing hands down. This service was superb. The rest of the four day trip was spent visiting the chosen property on two occasions for in-depth inspections. Nothing was too much trouble for Janet and Erwin. We have dealt with lots of estate agents over our 30 years of buying properties and we were actually taken aback by the in-depth knowledge, attention to detail and extremely efficient friendly service from everyone we met at this company. We will be keeping in touch with Janet and Erwin and hopefully they will visit us in our new house in Portugal. We do not recommend people lightly but it is nice in this day and age to be able to recommend a company you trust with your hard earned money.  Bravo Ideal Homes!! x
