Your buyer’s agent in Portugal

Pearls of Portugal is the leading full-service buyer’s agent in Portugal – and has been for quite a while -, due to our passion for the country and our drive to make your Portuguese dreams come true. We do not only provide excellent real estate services but offer also all the services you need to successfully settle in Portugal.

Everything began in 2010 when I, Frederik Pearls’ CEO, wanted  to buy a property in Portugal. I am German, but was already pretty accustomed to the country at the time. My wife is born and raised Portuguese. So we expected everything to go smoothly. Yet, the process revealed itself to be difficult, time-consuming, and only available in Portuguese. The concept for Pearls of Portugal, an buyer’s agent in Portugal for international investors, originated from my will to make this experience easier for others.

As your buyer’s agent in Portugal we facilitate the migration of our foreign clients to Portugal through personal relocation assistance and excellent investment opportunities. Through our buyer’s agent services, we provide you with everything you might need on your journey. You can rely on both our personal experience and devotion to our clients, and our network of trusted partners – such as engineers and lawyers -, with whom we have built strong bonds of trust over the years. 

Frederik Pohl, CEO of Pearls of Portugal

We have had a sign saying “We don’t sell real estate, we help our clients make their dreams come true” hanging in our office since Pearls’ first day. We prioritize the needs of our customers and instead of trying to shoehorn our clients into a predetermined plan, we aim to handle each client request individually as it arises.

The concept of placing the customer at the heart of an activity is not new, but Pearls of Portugal sets itself apart from the competition because we truly believe in this idea, and it permeates every aspect of our daily operations. The positive feedback we receive from our clients suggests that we are moving in the right direction, but we remain committed to continuously improving our services. As your Portuguese buyer’s agent, I am grateful for your confidence in Pearls of Portugal!
