So far we have purchased three different properties through Esfereal. The level of service and the knowledge of all aspects of the sales outstrips anything we encountered in the US or the UK! Gloria knows how to get the ducks in order and how to hide the process along so that we had clear titles by the time e returned to England. Further she acts as our project manager/power of attorney mother hen for the complete refurbish/building works on two very large projects. She, Carlos and Fernando know everyone in charge fro attornies to bankers, council officials to utility reps which ensures that applications go smoothly and in a timely manner. Brilliant work!

Bought a nice property close to Pedrógão Grande. We where surprised for all the help we got from Gloria and Carlos. Of course it is their job to sell houses and properties. But they really helped us with all other kind subjects, to give us a complete image what we dealing with. Until they end, we felt secure and honestly treated. We really can advice doing business with Esfeareal. Nb: this part of Portugal is fantastic and the people marvelous JW&C

I have been hugely impressed with the wonderful service offered by esferareal. Carlos has made the whole process of buying a little place in Portugal an absolute dream - really easy! He dealt with everything via email and phone calls and when we arrived to buy the house he devoted two days to us, taking us to the lawyers, council offices, bank, electricity, so that the whole process to a non-Portuguese speaker ran smoothly. I have not encountered this level of service in the UK, thank you so much. One thing, Carlos, perhaps you should set up branches here too!!

Just one word BRILLIANT !!!

We bought our ground with a small barn 4 years ago and the the adjoining land a couple of years later. Fernando made it possible. Fiscal numbers, bank account, solicitor and patience answering our daft questions.

Gordon and Anne Dickie, from Scotland - 2017
We have just purchased our dream home which was made possible through the hard work and dedication of Fernando and Gloria at Esfera Real and we are looking forward to our new lives in Portugal. Whilst we were back in the UK, Gloria was in touch by email on a daily basis and promptly answered any questions that we had (no matter what time of the day or night) - she was always available to help. On arrival back in Portugal to complete the purchase of our property, Gloria arranged everything including the introduction to an excellent English speaking solicitor (Sofia Neves), arranging the transfer of deeds at the Notary, arranging our Fiscal numbers and even helping to organise a bank account. Gloria is an absolute 'Powerhouse' and she was incredibly helpful and professional and gave us so much of her time. We would highly recommend the honest, trustworthy and professional team at Esfera Real. They will guide you through the whole process and make purchasing a property in Portugal far easier than you would imagine!

Carol and Keith, from UK - 2016
Carlos made the whole experience so simple and clear. Not only that a year on and Carlos is still a great help to us who do not yet speak Portuguese. Absolutely fantastic trust worthy company and customer service is second to none.

Mr & Mrs Harris, from UK - 2016
Esfera real has been recommended to us by word of mouth. After dealing with the agency, we have no regrets and warmly recommend to contact them if you wish to buy a property in Portugal. Buying a house has never been so easy even without speaking Portuguese! Fernando's team has been on our side during each step including helping us with the paper work (insurance, water, electricity, bank account). Many thanks to you and special thanks to Gloria who has been fantastic! Sandrine and David, 2016

Information for any new buyer Once we had narrowed down the area we wanted to live in central Portugal we came across esfera real estate agents on the Internet we picked out the houses we wanted to look at and then went ahead with our email Fernando returned back to us promptly with all the info we needed. We actually had a couple of visits before we found our new home but we can honestly say from start to Finish how Fernando offered an effective efficient and friendly service. He got us our fiscal numbers,bank accounts,and a solicitor (Sofia neves) sorted out for us before we had even decided to buy a property from them. Fernando then advised us on a builder (Bruno Simoes) for some work we wanted to do on the property. Carlos then did our house insurance and will also be doing our car insurance etc . There's only one word that sums Fernando and his company,professional! We are so looking forwards to living in Portugal in our new home.... Very many thanks.. Craig and felicity barker

We were nervous about buying a house abroad. Really not sure of what to do or how to go about things. Then we met Carlos and everything changed. We seen the house we really wanted on the Wednesday, negotiated Thursday, signed for it Friday and closed the deal on the Monday. Carlos made everything so easy and everything went really smooth. Carlos sorted out the lawyer, the bank, etc. Even the builder for the subsequent work we are doing on the house. Great guy, great agency. You are definitely in the right place if you are working with Esfera Realon on your dream future.

Colin and Jacqui, from UK - 2015
We met Aurora through Esfereal and even though we had only asked for a couple of properties we were introduced to many more. Our new home is fabulous. Not only have we found our new holiday home and base for our retirement we have found new friends. We love the culture in the small village of Graca and have been working with some local villagers to ensure the revenue in the village. We have received excellent service (the kind of service you would like to receive but often don't). The lawyer Sofia assisted through every step of the way even when we were back in England. Everything was done by e mail or Skype and progress was discussed. The whole team went above and beyond to help us realise or dream. They will find you places to stay whilst you are working on your house too. Trust these guys its well worth it.

Marc and Carol Perkins, from England - 2015
Now we are happily settled in our Portuguese property and enjoying a holiday in the sun we both want to say how grateful we have been for the excellent service you have provided. You and Carlos have proved to be extremely honest and totally reliable, giving us far more than we would normally expect of an estate agent eg: helping us to set up a bank account, supporting us to find a trustworthy English speaking lawyer and providing other vital contacts and information. We are delighted with our property and so relieved we chose to buy through ESFEREAL. We have no reservations about recommending you to other potential buyers and would be happy to speak to any of your English speaking customers to share how positive our experience has been.
Very many thanks

As a regular Dutch Visitor to Portugal we came to the conclusion to buy us a house in Portugal. After a long research by the internet and contact different housing agents we meet fernando fernandes a housing agent in Pedrogoa Grande. His service and experience in the housing  market  made a good impression on me. His advice was direct, and with his understanding and patience he became the agent who understood what kind of house we were looking for, not only for the holiday but for the future.We found our house and the right place and with the help of fernando all the paper work to be the owner of the house were prefect handled with care. If somebody is looking for a property (house) he or she can contact us I can recommend to contact this agency certainly.

Diz-se que um cliente satisfeito é a melhor publicidade, pelo que temos todo o prazer em recomendar sempre os vossos serviços.

We have just bought our new home in Portugal with the help of Carlos and Fernando of Esfera Real Estate Agents.
We fully endorse all the previous comments already made. Carlos and Fernando are truly remarkable people. Honest, trustworthy and absolutely wonderful. They certainly do go the extra mile for you, although a million extra miles would be more accurate! Nothing is too much trouble. Carlos was able to arrange both our house insurance and car insurance which alleviated so much stress and anxiety for us. The list of ‘extras’ is endless, suffice to say these guys do not stop at selling you a property, they help make your move to Portugal far easier and so enjoyable.
Forget everything you think and know about English Estate Agents these guys are nothing like them.
We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Esfera Real -a First Class establishment, run by First Class people.


Paul & Tessa Campbell, from UK - 2012
We have just bought a property from Fernando and have to say that in all our dealings with agents over the years, he is the most professional and helpful we have ever met. He could not do enough for us and went out of his way in very way, from helping with official paperwork., to opening bank accounts, nothing was too much trouble.  I recommend him and his partner Carlos most highly. I cannot praise them enough. It is a pleasure to deal with them.

Gary and June, from Austria - 2012
Having spent 18 months looking for a house in portugal, and numerous visits looking at so many houses  we came upon Esfera real.
We discussed with Fernando and Carlos  the type of property we were looking for, a large house with mature gardens in a quiet country location in our price range.  We were quickly shown 2 properties that could be suitable.
The 2nd property we looked at was new to the market, and better than our expectations and we immediately placed an offer.
We discussed with Fernando all that was needed for the property to become ours and to live in portugal.
Fernando agreed to take us through the whole process, from beginning  to end, and that is exactly what he has done. He gave us support in dealing with all government institutions and legal requirements.
We have a wonderful dream property, which we love and portugal is becoming our home.
All this has been made possible through Fernando's diligence, honesty and support, unlike any estate agent we have ever met.
Even now after purchasing the house Fernando continues to be supportive and has become good friend.
We highly recommend esfera real estate agency as our experence has been a totally postive one.


Martin and Iris, from UK - 2012
Our first contact with Fernando was a good few months before we moved to Portugal. We had shown an interest in a particular property and he provided us with great information and pictures, even though we were not in a position to buy at that point. He kept in touch and informed of developments.
After we arrived in Central Portugal Fernando became our invaluable source of information as neither of us spoke any Portuguese. His patience and thoroughness was fantastic and certainly better than any estate agent we had come across over many years in the UK, Ireland and France. Nothing was too much trouble for him.
When we eventually found the ‘house of our dreams’ Fernando worked tirelessly in making it all happen. He negotiated wonderfully on our behalf and succeeded in creating a situation which meant that we could buy the house. We were delighted.
Once the deal was done, Fernando did all that was required to effect a speedy purchase. Incredibly, we had bought and moved into the house within seven weeks of our first viewing and yet, with Fernando’s help everything was done correctly and carefully.
He accompanied us for all the necessary appointments to secure Fiscal numbers, opening a bank account, finding an independent lawyer, paying taxes, getting electric and water supplies as well as arranging for us to get TV, Internet and telephones set up.All of this was done with a cheerful and willing attitude and as a result the process of buying a house in Portugal was a pleasant and enjoyable experience. We had heard many ‘horror’ stories about the process but we needn’t have worried as Fernando made everything go as smooth as clockwork. Whatever issue arose, Fernando was there to help us through, and has continued to do so even after we had moved into our house.
We would recommend Fernando and his services without reservation. He is hardworking, trustworthy and reliable….not things one usually associates with estate agents. Through our experience we feel we have found not only a great estate agent but a good friend in Fernando.

Tony and Rosie, from UK - 2011
We discovered Esfera Real Estate early on in our search for a house in Central Portugal and didn't really look back. We felt that we could really trust Fernando and Carlos and this has proved to be true. We have not bothered with any other estate agents.
Although we dealy mainly with Fernando, we also visited a property with Carlos and found both of them to be friendly, professional, open and honest.
Fernando spent a great deal of time driving us around to look at property and once our dream home was found, nothing was too much trouble for him. Fernando helped us with everything, again giving a lot of his own time to take us to get Fiscal numbers and to see the Notary. He also accompanied us to see our solicitor and generally supported us with explaing documents, notices, processes and procedures. Fernando helped us to find the best professionals; our solicitor Claudia and our English speaking but Portuguese builder Paulo.
Fernando's help and support didn't stop there. Once we were back in the UK he always made himself available to assist us with and translation of documents, setting up direct debits, taking in our post and affering an inordinate amount of his own time at no cost to us.
We consider Fernando a friend, you would never experience anything like this with an English estate agent, there is no comparison. In the UK, once a sale is complete that is where the relationship ends, no so with Fernando.
We would highly recommend Esfera Estate Agency to anyone looking for a property in Central Portugal. To sum up here's a few words to describe Fernando and Carlos: honest, trustworthy, diligent, reliable, friendly, personable and dependable. They have been and continue to be, even though our property has been bought, fabulous. We couldn't have done it without them.

Susan & Roy, from Suffolk - 2011
You have come to the best estate agent in the area. Fernando and his Team certainly cares and knows how to follow through. He realy helps even after the sale has been completedMy family have now bought 4 properties with him.

Sean and Paul, from Nederland - 2011
I have done several business with the owners of esfera real during the last four years. The main thing that I have experienced with all those cases is particularly one thing: reliability! So to my impression people are lucky if they can buy or sell their property with Esfera Real!!
