Meet the Ideal Homes International Team
I’m now approaching my twelfth year working in the property industry. In that time I’ved helped hundreds of people find their ideal home in the sun. Seven years ago I decided to start my own company, Ideal Homes. I wanted to build a strong client focused service that is unsurpassed in its field for going the extra mile.
I am originally from Sheffield and I moved to the Algarve 11 years ago ready for a change. It was supposed to be a two year career break, but I loved it so much I found myself a wonderful husband and three beautiful dogs. This is now home and my life is working in real estate in the lovely Algarvian sunshine.
Mortgage & Listings Manager
I was raised in South Africa and studied cosmetology. Directly upon graduating I started my own business, which I managed successfully for four years. At Ideal Homes, I focus on assisting clients in navigating the local buying process and securing mortgage financing for their property investments.
Reservations Team Supervisor
Relocating from London to the Algarve in 2015, I experienced a complete lifestyle change. Since joining the team of Ideal Homes Rentals in early 2016, my role has greatly developed, and I now manage the reservations team at our head office in Vila Sol, and ensure all operations are running smoothly.
Real Estate Advisor
After travelling pretty much all over the world (which is a lot for any human, born in 1997), I arrived in Portugal and knew it was definitely one of the best countries I could choose to live in. Why? Well with the beautiful weather, the low crime rates, the inviting Portuguese community, cheap food and wine, and the variety of different towns, Portugal has it all! I came to the Algarve on holiday in 2019 and ended up winning a job at Ideal Homes. I had previously worked as an estate agent before, in Queensway, London, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I enjoy selling property in the sunshine. Staying in Portugal really wasn’t written in my five year plans but it is now! I sell property in the day and sing and DJ at night… not a bad life!
Real Estate Advisor
I was born and raised in Cameroon. After my A levels, I took on a two year professional course in HRM and later decided to travel to Cyprus to further my studies in Business Admin. I later moved to Portugal in 2015 when I was expecting my son and have since then fallen in love with the country and the Portuguese people. I speak English, French and Portuguese. I spent my first couple of years in the northern part of Portugal, Coimbra, and the first time I visited the Algarve, I decided it was the place for me – it was love at first sight. The beautiful Atlantic beaches, very low crime rates, no hustle and bustle and no language barrier as almost everyone speaks English and/or French, good weather all year round. My family and friends living in other parts of Europe visit me regularly and I visit them as well but, to be honest there’s no place like the Algarve.
