Portugal Homes owns its headquarters in Lisbon with a view to the rest of the world. Founded by David Poston and Gary Harland, the real estate company is making its way to success thanks to the amazing relationship we build with our investors in real estate, and the dynamic teams the directors have created.

Thanks to the experience they have in the real estate market, the unique relationship they keep and maintain with our real estate investors is focused on human capital and team dynamics

People being the company’s greatest asset, David and Gary have always tried to respond to the needs of employees as a whole, respecting and looking at all spheres of their lives in order to lead and promote their personal and professional development.

The three women who take on the face of the brand, Andreia Leite, Verónica Rosa, and Mariana Vieira carry the founders’ legacy, who describe the company as a player without fear of failure. Attempting to display the synergy created by David and Gary, the three of them pass that to the teams, creating lifetime value for the company’s working environment and for our clients. All departments at Portugal Homes exchange information on a daily basis as by understanding what each other does helps us better produce our work and deliver a complete service to the client.

Being a high growth business, our teams work on the highest standards, in a hardworking environment, always striving to become stronger and better at what we do best. These efforts have been recognized internationally by International Property Awards, twice in a row.

The company’s culture is also an important asset for the business, as the majority (if not all) of our clients come from overseas. We have all kinds of people working at Portugal Homes, from Mandarin to Russian speaking, from the other side of the ocean all the way to this side. We accept, respect and love the multicultural environment we work in as we believe that working with individuals from different cultures and backgrounds results in the creation of many groundbreaking ideas, initiatives, and concepts. That’s how the Lusíadas 75 Development came to life and into Portugal Homes hands, for so to speak. The fact our teams are able to multitask allowed the company to successfully shelter this project, coordinating all essential steps, from engineering matters to archaeological research, before the building’s construction started. The strategic opening of our first international office in Hong Kong was also a result of the synergy that the founders have created, taking the same multicultural team closer to the client.


At Portugal Homes, our collaborators are our best decision-makers. We don’t follow the standard hierarchical structure in our company, rather we prefer making everyone feel included by hearing them and taking their opinion into account. This is why we show ourselves to be a synergic organization, where our structure is interconnected, as you can see below. Click the image to Meet the Team.

Portugal Homes environment is often changing, thanks to the new members coming in, we find that autonomous teams are much more nimble than large hierarchies. This also leaves no space for miscommunication, encouraging our creativity. We believe that career satisfaction involves a chance to pursue our passion, rather than just receiving the paycheck at the end of the month. Thankfully, David and Gary enable us to be ourselves and express our ideas, believing in each department’s work and trying to help us improve and define the best practices to apply at what we do best.

Portugal Homes did a great job keeping me up to date with progress on my new home construction purchase by providing regular and comprehensive reports. This helped to ease anxieties about doing a home purchase in the midst of a global pandemic.
