It is sure that 2020 will be a fable for us to share with the next generations, but we are also extremely proud to say that Portugal Homes rose stronger from the pandemic

Last year, businesses and companies of all sectors showed tremendous agility and resilience to adapt to tough times, and as such Portugal Homes, now part of the Harland & Poston Group made unconventional decisions to drive productivity and profitability.

The most critical drivers for Co-Founders and Managing Directors, David Poston and Gary Harland were their employees. 2020 was a year of focus for our teams to continue growing, learning, studying, and investing in themselves to rise up stronger for the months ahead.

My property advisor, Mathew McGurn, was truly excellent! His knowledge, professionalism and attention to details was much appreciated. He worked hard to not only find a property that fit all my requirements, he negotiated successfully with agents making sure my offer won over other buyers bidding for the same property. In addition, his communication skills, prompt response time and general help with my getting settled in Portugal went above and beyond the normal.
