Sweden, February 2019 – Rua Borges Carneiro 31
“In 2016, I was looking for someone in Lisbon who could estimate the value (at the time) of an apartment in Lapa/Estrela, as well as the cost of possible works without seeing it. Who could give me a credible perspective of the possible evolution of the market for that area for the next few years and, in general, to inspire confidence; all this without the possibility of compromise, neither immediate nor in the long term.
I presented this situation to the best Real Estate Agents and personally interviewed 6 Consultants in a final screening. The divergence of the values that were presented to me, the lack of elements to substantiate them and the general attitude revealed a market without regulation, and a professionalism and competence inferior to those that I was used to in Sweden.
Until I met Mariana Sousa Rêgo. From her I obtained exactly the data that I was looking for and that I sent back to my children, and based on that data we were able to start the process for future decisions.
Last year, my father died, my stepmother waived the usufruct and the sale became possible. For that, I went to Portugal and stayed there for more than 6 months. During this time, the decision and execution process was followed by Mariana’s team of lawyers, architect and accountant in a way that brought the delicate family process to a successful conclusion, which was followed by a quick, efficient and economically satisfactory sale for all parties.
I can confirm that neither in Sweden, Switzerland, Holland or Hong Kong we could have done better. In the rest of the world, I don’t know. But I doubt it…”
