While Lisbon is a fantastic city and continues to attract new residents and visitors throughout the year thanks to its cosmopolitan offering, not all properties in Lisbon are equal.

A complete service

The percentage of referrals to the company through highly satisfied customers is testament to the high level of client service provided for everyone working with Tamea International and this is at the very heart of the company.
Tariq El-Asad, the founder and CEO of Tamea International leads the team of professionals and has based the level of customer service on what he personally found lacking in the market when he first set up the business. He recalls how when he first came to Portugal to make his own investments that the level of service that he was receiving was “abysmal” and wanted to rectify this immediately as he found that “dozens, if not hundreds of people were looking for the exact same service” that he so struggled to find.

By building a company that truly values its clients and is able to offer expertise beyond the usual has helped Tamea International become a reference for buyers, sellers and those looking to learn more about the market in general.
