One Select Properties was founded on a love for the Algarve, and determination to share our passion for this stunning region of Portugal. We believe that the temperate climate and relaxed atmosphere provide the perfect location both for living and investing in property.
And whether you are a buyer or a seller, our specialist knowledge of the Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo areas, our experience and commitment, help make it possible for you to own the property you desire.
Portuguese property sales in the Algarve present exciting opportunities. So, if you are seeking a new lifestyle or an investment, One Select Properties is here to help.
We do more than simply help you buy and sell real estate. As an independent real estate agent we provide a personal service for property in the Algarve that makes the One Select Properties team a pleasure for you to do business with – whether you are a buyer or a vendor.
We know that people prefer to do business with those they like and trust. Many of our clients from around the world who come to us to talk about Algarve property remain friends long after their sale or purchase has been successfully concluded.
We believe that the strength and length of our relationships is the true measure of our success, rather than the number of villas and houses we sell.
Houses for sale in the Algarve
Our founder José Carvalho has spent his entire career spanning nearly thirty years in real estate. Driven by a vision to position the Algarve as a leading global destination for living, retirement and investment, he contributed to the success of the prestigious resort of Quinta do Lago since its very early days. For many years, José dreamed of pursuing this vision independently, and in 2015, this dream became reality when he launched One Select Properties.
Our intention was not to be the largest real estate agent in the region but in line with José’s values, to be recognised as the best and most trusted; by providing a new level of service to our clients when making their Algarve property sale, purchase and investment.
Non-habitual residence and the Golden Visa
Our commitment to service extends to all our clients, but it is particularly valuable for those who are seeking to benefit from Portuguese residency and tax options, such as non-habitual residency and the Golden Visa resident permit scheme.
Our knowledge of local business and familiarity with the operation of these schemes and residency options can be an important asset, helping you take full advantage of the benefits available.
Personal service according to your needs
We recognise that a property sale or purchase is more than a business transaction. That service starts by building an understanding of your aspirations and desires.
Whether it is a family home, a special place for magical holidays or the location for a happy retirement - or even if it is a carefully considered investment – the house or villa that you choose is personal to you.
So as part of our service we work to get to know what are looking for in a location, the design and quality of build you prefer, the level of exclusivity and cost. We believe it is essential to let us find the home that is right for you.
Property in the Algarve selected personally by us
Of course, we are experts in all aspects of Algarve property sales, and can introduce you to some of the most exciting and exclusive homes around Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and the immediate surroundings.
We will personally select the properties we introduce you to. We know your time is valuable, and we believe the process of choosing should be as enjoyable and stress free as the lifestyle you are looking forward to.
Always working harder for you
Our service does not stop when we have found the perfect houses or villas. Algarve properties are unique and distinctive. Our local knowledge, and our network of solicitors and tradespeople helps us ensure the process of buying or selling and of moving is problem-free.
