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.

Everything was perfect. I got all answers about my questions. 

Investor from Turkey

Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.
