Local Algarve real estate knowledge with an international background is a defining pillar of the founder of The Agency Portugal. Andreas is born in Germany, grew up in Portugal, and educated at Institut auf dem Rosenberg, St. Gallen, Switzerland.

After being chosen at the People to People Ambassador program for Diplomacy and International Relations at the United Nations New York and Washington, D.C., Andreas has attended the International University of Monaco, where he remained for his first job as client relationship manager at an investment firm.

Andreas turned entrepreneur with the experiences gathered in Monaco and founded several IT ventures. After returning to Portugal and commencing a holiday rentals business in the Algarve and Lisbon, which earned booking.com awards and Airbnb super host status, he identified the need for outstanding service in the Algarve real estate sector and founded The Agency Portugal, catering to outstanding Algarve properties.

The Agency Portugal is not a traditional Algarve real estate agency, but a brokerage of a great lifestyle. Find ideal Algarve properties with us today!

Buying Process in Portugal

What is the property purchase process in Portugal?
Once you have found the right property, you fill out a reservation form and leave a reservation deposit which is agreed prior. Within 14 days a promissory contract is signed and a deposit must be paid ranging from 10% to 30% of the purchase value. A Public Deed is signed at a Portuguese Notary who will check if the documents of the property are in order and ensures that the buying entity has paid the purchase Tax (IMT) and the remaining value of the purchase price.
