What’s more is that these investors aren’t just looking into relocating to beautiful and heavenly destinations, but are also considering how countries have handled the COVID-19 pandemic when making their decisions. Portugal was considered one of the safest destinations in Europe, being amongst the least affected by COVID-19. The country implemented specific hygiene protocols in accommodations, restaurants, stores, as well as measures such as the exchange of filters in air conditioning units, in addition to the existence of availability of masks and social distancing. Portugal also granted citizenship to migrants to ensure they would have access to health services during the pandemic outbreak.

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.Investidor dos EUA
