“Like thousands of happy buyers over the last 40 years, we’ve watched the Algarve mature into a truly world-class destination for property seekers from all over the world,” said the Cerro Novo team.

Back in 1964, the grandfather of the current Sales Director, Robert Edwards, begun to develop the west Albufeira neighbourhood of Cerro Grande, accompanied by Robert’s father, Allan Edwards. In the ten years leading up to the 1974 ‘Carnation’ Revolution, Cerro Grande became one of the region’s most favoured places to live and attracted global investment.

In 1981 Allan Edwards and his new business partner, Susan Bland formed the property management and lettings company based in Cerro Grande and shortly after, the real estate business was born.

Today, the prospect of owning an overseas property or moving to warmer climates in retirement remains high on the list for people from all over the world, especially as many of us have had much more time to think about our futures over the last year.

Robert Edwards, Sales Director of Cerro Novo Properties, said: “I believe that for many people, the Algarve’s climate, lifestyle and culture, international accessibility, political stability and the security of property ownership in Portugal makes the country highly investable as a place for a second home or for permanent relocation”.

Robert’s business partner and office manager, Ana Penisga-Amorim, said: “I am proud to have seen and contributed to the business development since joining in 2000, and despite the current challenges, I believe Cerro Novo has the skills, talent and technology to deliver the very best service to all our valued Clients, wherever they are located”.

Cerro Novo continues to offer a full Property Management and Holiday Rentals service via our sister company, Cerro Novo Property Management, led by Lesley Cuss and her team from their offices also at Cerro Grande, Albufeira.
