"I wish to thank Ricardo and his team at Local for their help in buying my dream apartment in Lagos, he made it all so easy and gave great advice and support in the whole process, it is so important to have someone like Ricardo helping in the process when you not from Portugal, he even arranged a building contractor to look after a project for us, thanks again Ricardo and your team for all you have done."
" Os serviços prestados pelo Ricardo foram muitíssimo valiosos para concretizar a compra de um imóvel em Sagres. Ele mostrou grande paciência, pois o processo durou mais de um ano, mas fundamentalmente foi sua integridade que me manteve satisfeito com o seu trabalho. Ele trabalha pelo cliente. Muito grato."

"Ricardo has assisted me on various occasions to find, and buy valuable real estate in the Algarve. Not only did he sell me the properties, but went with me to the bank to get the correct cheques made out to the sellers, but also took me to the notaries to finalize the transactions. He also picked me up and took me to the tax offices locally to pay all relevant fees, and to register as a local resident. Then he assisted me to register one property as an AL - to legally rent it as Holiday rentals, and also took me to the relevant offices to get water and electricity connected within days. Furthermore he assisted me in getting an excellent construction team to make the changes I needed in one property at excellent cost. Ricardo also assisted me in getting my rather complex residency in Portugal with SEF ( emigration/Naturalisation) in order, and he and his lovely family have made my move to the Algarve a great and rewarding experience. They have recently opened up their own real estate business “ Local Properties “, conveniently situated next to the Cities’ offices in Lagos and I highly recommend him and his team to anyone interested in buying in the areas they cover."

"Compramos um imóvel no centro da cidade de Lagos através da vossa imobiliária.O negócio só se concretizou porque o Ricardo se envolveu exaustivamente na sua concretização, desde a altura em que nos apresentou o negócio até á escritura, cuidando também de todos os detalhes burocráticos. Não temos duvidas em recomendar os vossos serviços."

"Como advogada tenho trabalhado ao longo dos anos com muitos agentes imobiliários. Desta vez coube-me ocupar um lugar pouco usual, o de cliente. Só posso dizer que a perseverança e dedicação do Ricardo foram determinantes para que o negócio se concretizasse. Das primeiras vezes que falámos, ele prometeu-me algo que não esquecerei: que nunca desistia, que era um lutador. E que íamos conseguir. E conseguimos! Obrigada e muito sucesso para si, Ricardo, e para a sua startup Local Properties!"

"I worked with Ricardo when I purchased my Quinta last Spring. I found him to be professional and personable and extremely helpful! I love his commitment to his clients, and his out-of-the -box thinking. He helped me find the forever home I had visualized, and he is the "guy who gets it done" with a real "can do" attitude. Carla, is a gem, and has been so kind and patient with me when I pass by the office with yet another question! I highly recommend this company."
