About Us

We are a boutique Estate Agency dedicated to providing a high level of service. We’re here to help you with the process. We cover the area around Albufeira, but partner with agencies from Faro to Lagos.


3P - PORTUGAL PROPERTIES PORTFOLIO is a new estate agency situated in the heart of the Algarve, with experience in the property markets in Portugal, specifically in and around Albufeira in the Algarve. We strive to be a small boutique agency providing a high degree of professional service, beyond what one would expect from a typical homegrown estate agent. We believe that the lifestyle in the Algarve has several key characteristics that compare favourably to other summer destinations. With over 3,000 hours of sunshine, and predominantly blue skies over the Algarve, combined with great fresh food, pleasant lifestyle choices, such as ample golf courses, horse-riding, nature, walking trails, beaches, and within three hours flying from much of Europe directly to a modern expanded airport in Faro in the Algarve, and from most of the world through indirect flights via Lisbon (through hubs in Dubai and Istanbul among others) and a short hop to Faro, the Algarve is within range to become the destination of choice. Portugal is one of the safest places in Europe and most Portuguese people open to receiving foreign nationals to their country.

In an initial intake meeting, we will record your preferences, requirements, and interests and propose a strategy to show you what the Algarve could offer you. We may recommend you some particular towns or villages and give you an impression of what is available. We’ll show you several types of properties, and explain the process of buying or selling. If your preferred type of property is outside of our current portfolio, we work with various partners and we will communicate with them to find your desired home in the Algarve. If your visit to the Algarve ends before you find what you are looking for we will continue to forward you properties that we feel may be suitable for you.

3P - PORTUGAL PROPERTIES PORTFOLIO has a team of dedicated specialists who work together to find the best properties and propose these to our clients. We have a thorough knowledge of the local market, we have access to excellent lawyers, solicitors, financial institutions (banks), architects, construction companies, good relationships with local authorities, and other services, making us a one-stop shop. Through our extensive experience and our network with other estate agents, we can also guide you to other areas in Portugal should your preference move elsewhere.

We speak Portuguese, English, French, German, Dutch fluently. Furthermore, we will do our best to obtain access to other language operators should that be of interest to you. You are more than welcome in our office, or we can visit you at your hotel or at any other mutually convenient location.

Working With us

3P - PORTUGAL PROPERTIES PORTFOLIO’s prime objective is to make our clients happy and enjoy the Algarve way of life. Our ever-changing portfolio of properties is available on this website and we would love to show you the properties in real life. Should you have specific desires outside of what we currently have in our portfolio, please let us know and we will search using our network and let you know as soon as possible.

Not all our clients appreciate having their properties presented publicly on a website. We can therefore occasionally have properties in our portfolio that we can present to potential buyers subject to it meeting their requirements.

Successful Visit

We all understand that buying a property is not an everyday expenditure. Therefore, we fully encourage our clients to take time and not rush to a decision. If this means visiting Portugal an additional time we will help to make this a successful trip. We will refund your flight* in case the visit results in the signing of the deed of purchase.

* Subject to prior approval by our management and for flights originating within Europe on direct flights to Faro.
