I would highly recommend Tavira House and Home to anyone wishing to purchase property in the east Algarve. Sarah and Juliet Locke are very professional and from start to finish look after you. Indeed the after sales service they provide goes above and beyond your normal experience with estate agents in my experience. A wonderful start to my new life in Portugal.

We purchased a house in Tavira October 2012. It was easy to choose Tavira House and Home as our local contact amongst several other estate agents. They showed genuine interest in what we were looking for. The whole buying process was handled professionally and efficiently. They were helpful and we felt safe and taken care of. The questions and concerns we might have were followed up and dealt with effectively and quickly. We would not hesitate to recommend Tavira House and Home, and in addition their website is an excellent planning tool before you get to the viewings.

Having spent a whole week looking at thirteen properties to find our perfect home, we then met Sarah and Juliet who came up with our dream property. They were efficient and helpful in negotiating with the owner, and went the extra length to ensure that the sale was completed without hassle and at great speed. Well done Tavira House & Home! We´d recommend their dedication and diligence to anyone.

Testimonial In 2015 whilst browsing the Tavira House and Home site we found a property we liked and contacted Juliet with our initial enquiries. Although we knew the area well we were not able to travel to view so Juliet sent the architectural plans, a detailed synopsis of the apartment and took the time to take photographs of the apartment we were interested in. We agreed to purchase and Juliet 'held our hands' at every step of the process, answering all our questions and queries swiftly and professionally. We exchanged a huge amount of emails and telephone calls! The contacts we were given for legal advice, currency and furniture all proved to be excellent too. We received amazing service over and beyond that of an Estate Agent and now own a beautiful apartment in a great location that we have already enjoyed with family and friends several times and can continue to enjoy in the future. We have very positive feedback on our experience of Tavira House and Home where the focus is not on a sale but on the right sale and the pre and post sales care is second to none we have experienced.

We are delighted with our purchase of a wonderful house right on the coast in this magical corner of Portugal. Juliet and Sarah Locke provided great support and guidance through the buying process. It was a pleasure working with them and we would recommend Tavira House and Home without hesitation.

After a rather short discussion my wife and I made up our minds to buy an apartment in Portugal. We were tired of the Norwegian ‘summers’ and wanted a place in the sun. We decided on Portugal and wasted no time in going for the Algarve coastline.

My partner and I bought our property in Tavira in 2015. We had only 1 week to find a property. Juliet was very friendly, and informative when we visited the property, which we later decided to buy. The whole process took just under 4 weeks - from deciding to buy to taking ownership (which I believe is unusual). Thanks to Juliet the process was swift and straightforward. We felt well informed throughout the process. We would highly recommend her services.

In March 2013, my wife and I allowed ourselves 10 days to find and purchase a property in Tavira. Thanks to the preparation beforehand via Tavira House & Home and the properties presented us by Sarah, the whole process ran smoothly. We found our house, signed the contract the day before we flew home and six weeks later we unlocked our front door for the first time. A big thank you Juliet and Sarah - you're the best!

We found Juliet to be most helpful, knowledgeable and enthusiastic in our property search in East Algarve. When we choose our property she gave us space to make decisions. Even after close of sale Juliet was available for aftercare service, which was most helpful in a foreign country. I would highly recommend Juliet and her company to anyone wishing to buy a holiday home or relocate to your forever home in the Algarve.

We have found you very professional with a great personal touch .

I have just brought a property through Juliet at Tavira House & Home. From the moment we saw the property advertised in her office to the moment it became ours, Juliet was simply fantastic! She was professional, possessed extensive knowledge of the local area, able to provide a number of contacts for different stages in the purchase process, candid, responsive and a complete joy. She made my entire experience utterly seamless and extremely easy. If you are buying in Tavira and want a wonderful and stress free experience, Tavira House & Home is most certainly the Company to use.

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for the most professional help and guidance that I recently received from Tavira House and Home during my search and subsequent purchase of a property in Tavira. I could not have imagined that the purchase of a property could have been made so simple and straightforward. The service provided by Tavira House and Home was far more than you could expect from any Estate Agency. I not only received clear advice on the processes involved in purchasing property in Portugal but was also linked in to all the appropriate services to make my purchase complete. I know that without such expertise I would not be the owner of a property in Portugal and I would not hesitate in recommending the services of Tavira House and Home, particularly to anyone seeking to purchase property for the first time. Best Regards

Tavira House and Home sold our villa in Faz Fato in April 2017. We were impressed with their professionalism and expertise. The advice they gave on the price of the villa was current and supported our best interest in the existing property climate. Queries were answered fully and promptly and they didn’t send any timewasters to view the property. Their office is situated in an ideal position to catch passing trade, opposite a hotel and other thriving businesses. The villa was advertised in various magazines and online. They were able to advise us of other relevant professionals relating to the sale of the house, such as a lawyer, tax advisor and money transfer, which enabled a smooth and prompt sale. We would recommend Tavira House and Home. Out of the eight real estate agents we encountered they were by far the best.

Juliet of Tavira House & Home was very helpful when we were searching for a holiday home in the Algarve She has good knowledge of the area and the local culture and helped us with her good local contacts to be able to finish the deal. This was very helpful for us from Scandinavia as laws and rules of how to buy a property differ quite a lot from what we are used to. We can strongly recommend Tavira House & Home if you are thinking of buying a property in the Algarve!

Working with Juliet and Tavira House & Home was one of the best decisions I made when starting the property buying process in Portugal. Her local knowledge and contacts, patience and perseverance in finding the best property to suit all my requirements as well as her after sales service was outstanding. I have no hesitation in recommending Tavira House & Home to anyone looking to buy in the area.
