Background and Establishment

Ideal Homes Portugal is a multi-award winning real estate agency established in 2012 by Christopher White. A well traveled British expat with experience in the real estate industry, Chris saw market potential within the local industry which he felt was going unfulfilled. His vision was to further open the Algarve to foreigners from around the world and in doing so, offer exceptional end-to-end solutions.

From the initial enquiry about a property, the viewing experience, through to enabling expert legal and financial advice along with mortgage consultations, the goal was to provide a one stop shop for all clients. Chris wanted to ensure that clients were well-informed and confident in their investment by providing the required support to navigate the local buying process.

Chris’ thinking proved successful and after two and a half years the business relocated its head office to the prestigious Vila Sol resort in Vilamoura. Nine years on, Ideal Homes Portugal is regarded as one of the premier real estate agencies in the Algarve and due to this success a franchise office has been opened in Costa Blanca, Spain.

Trust, service and value underpin the company’s core principles and with an expanding range of services such as Rental and Property Management, bespoke Finance and Mortgage solutions, Currency Exchange, Listing, Buying, Property Development and Projects, these values continue to be held.

Ideal Homes’ services and solutions are no longer just for existing clients but are open to any property owners who need professional and reliable support in the Algarve.

Tailoring the property experience to the client, Ideal Homes Portugal carefully identifies the needs of each individual person, ensuring their investment is a wise, enjoyable, worry free experience – whether for permanent relocation, retirement, rental income through investment, second home or a holiday home in the Algarve.
