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.

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 their 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!

I found Isabel to be extremely helpful during this difficult time due to Covid 19 because we could not be out in Portugal, everything was done at arms length. Isabel had to organise a lawyer, then arrange to pack up our belongings from the apartment and be there when removal company came to collect boxes. If it had not been for her help I do not think sale would have completed.

Monique and Jacques Noyer
We were looking for an apartment in Lagos, we found Marcela Properties and it was Anja who guided us in this region of Algarve that she knows very well.
She gave us total gratification, having managed and found what we were looking for until we got the “wow”! where we are today. We also expect from your professionalism and seriousness the sale of the one we left, still in Lagos, and with whom we also fell in love.

In fact, I am very pleased with the way Andriy handled our paperwork, with professionalism and rigor, keeping us informed of the situation even when we were waiting for the ideal client, things that four other agencies were not able to do
Therefore, in conclusion, in gratitude for your commitment, I would not fail to recommend you to people who ask me for advice on choosing a competent local real estate agent.

Maria João Teixeira
I sold my house through Marcela Properties, from all the agencies that contacted me to advertise the property, this was the most professional and correct company that appeared. I have to thank Andriy for all the availability and attention he had with our business and for selling the house. I recommendthis agency to all homeowners who have homes to sell as well as wanting to buy this Agency. Thanks for everything.
