What our clients say

  • We thoroughly recommend Ideal Homes both for viewing trips and buying a property abroad !

    Paula & Clive Bayley
    Ideal Homes were great at organising our viewing trip and finding the right property for us. They listened to our buying needs and were happy to say if they felt a property wasn’t suitable for us. At the end of our trip, we had narrowed our search down to two properties and I asked for an honest opinion. The property which Ideal Homes wasn’t selling was the recommended choice which proves they wanted us to be happy and make the right choice. We are using the Rentals section of Ideal Homes to manage our property which is faultless. We are so pleased with the whole rental side of things as when we aren’t using it we rent it out. We thoroughly recommend Ideal Homes both for viewing trips and buying a property abroad and also the rental package, which is second to none! We have been happy with their services from the first day of our viewing trip, to today as I sit on my veranda in Lagos writing this review!

  • We have had a great experience with Ideal Homes Portugal!

    Pete & Claire Overall,  
    The team have given us the support needed to assist our purchase on the Algarve when most needed. I first found them from A Place in the Sun magazine ( through someone else’s positive experience with them ) and have not looked back since. I must say that Janet in particular helped us massively by sharingf her own experiences with us which helped guide us through and i know she is on the other end of the phone ( or email ) if and when i need her. We have met and had coffee a few times now and nothing ( and I mean nothing ) is too much trouble for her, I don’t know how she does it but I’m glad she does. The wider team can also point you in the right direction with lawyers, financiers and money exchange brokers etc which is a godsend when you're dipping your toes in to property purchasing abroad for the first time We are now very close to completing our purchase and can’t wait to move to our house in the sunshine I would have no hesitation in recommending Ideal Homes if you need advice and a safe pair of hands... thanks Ideal Homes
  • Peter & Francesca Holland

    We thoroughly recommend Ideal Homes to anyone considering buying an overseas property.

    Peter & Francesca Holland
    We decided to look for an overseas property in September 2017 and arranged viewings with some agents in October. We found out the awkward way that, unlike the market in UK, the overseas markets are ‘open’ in as much as any agent can sell any property and the commission is shared between the principal agent and the agent that finds the ultimate purchaser.  We were offered viewings of the same properties by several agents and a dozen viewings dwindled to a handful. It was frankly an embarrassing and unproductive experience.  We then saw an advert for a seminar held by Ideal Homes and attended that in January 2018. Having chosen our preferred areas (in 2 countries) we were put in touch with dedicated agents that would guide and advise us. We arranged and combined 4 trips of holidays and viewings and were shown about 40 properties. The agents were knowledgable and thorough. We made an offer in August and completed in September 2018 and now have a lovely second home in Spain.    Since the offer was accepted we have received support in every aspect from legals to currency exchange, maintenance to furnishings, translation etc.  We thoroughly recommend Ideal Homes to anyone considering buying an overseas property.  
  • To make it short: 10 is the rating.

    We had experience with other organizations before, and Sasha exceeded our expectations. He is well informed, a good communicator, flexible, reliable, and able to create a good relationship within a short time. Yes , we had seen several properties before. And with our feed-back Sasha skipped some he planned to show and instead we decided together how to proceed. As you may know, we with our German correctness prefer these exact capabilities.
