All nations have there own and specific sayings. Most of them not only are popular but usually right and that is why they keep on living, generation after generation. 

A barking dog never bites– which is usually the case. 

Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise – also true, even if there are few men that can prove it. 

It ain’t over until the fat lady sings – I am not in a position to say that this one is true but it sure is funny.

You see my point? We grow up with these popular sayings and sometimes we use them as well, they are part of our culture. All of them teach us something and advise us on a day by day life. 

Now let me tell you about my favorite saying, entirely dedicated to the amazing city of Lisbon. 

Meter o Rossio na Betesga  - translated means trying to fit the Rossio square into the small street of Betesga, what does it mean? – Something that can’t be done because it’s impossible. 

The Rossio square is very big and the street Betesga is the smallest in town, so you can imagine that if you try to put a big square in a small street, even if physically it is already impossible, it would never fit. 

What is possible and you can do, is going to Rossio square and try to find this street – Rua da Betesga – the smallest street ever. 

Enjoy wandering around Lisbon.

It's fantastic how Ryan had complete knowledge regarding Lisbon and dealt with us in a great manner.

Akbar Ali - Investor from Pakistan

Ryan is very professional, but also friendly and knowledgeable about the Golden Visa market. He was also flexible as travelled from the Algarve to meet me in Lisbon to stand in for 1 colleague at short notice.

Investor from UK

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.

Investor from the USA

Although through Zoom, we established great confidence in George's integrity. [It was] important for us to have confidence in the staff's ability to feel aligned in views.

Donald Collie from Australia

The process was very quick and clear. I got all the information I needed in the first hour. The experience was perfect.

Tomoko Inoue from Japan

Overwhelming. Luisa has exceeded our expectations on all levels. Trust was established immediately. Enhanced by super friendly professionalism. The networks to banks, accountants, lawyers was seamless. there is not enough space here to write all the positives, enough to say we are making an offer and we only arrived 4 days ago. Its impossible to improve from perfection!
