A look back at the year  | The Portugal Homes by Numbers Edition


It is certain that 2021 was a year of perseverance, and dedication, not only for Portugal Homes business but for the entire world. The vision of our co-founders David Poston & Gary Harland is of rising above and beyond the obstacles and furthering our growth as a prestigious real estate & property investment or privately-held agency.

Portugal Homes, part of the Harland & Poston Group has shown that their focus and commitment paid off; as we enter the new year in 2022; we can be cognizant that our goals and values are all in alignment to hold an even higher level of productivity and profitability.

Indubitably, this cannot happen without the support of an amazing team, always striving to be better at their craft, showing ever-more growth as professionals, and ultimately the massive integrity our clients see within us at Portugal Homes.

Roshana (Zulfiqar) Mian | Hong Kong

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.

Investor from the USA

Everyone I met with and spoke with has been extremely knowledgeable and professional. Dealing with native English speakers who understand things from my perspective was very reassuring. Finally, knowing that I had Matthew in my corner gave me the confidence to proceed with the process of buying an apartment in Lisbon. Thanks very much.
