BUYERS FORUM

Agosto 2012

After travelling through the Med for over a year on our yacht we arrived in Madeira with no knowledge of the country other than it was famous for its flowers.  We were enchanted by the Island and decided to browse the properties for sale section to see what life for the local people was like and if this was somewhere we could consider living.  We found the ‘Pink Real Estate’ website with a property that caught our eye and using the on-line form we requested a viewing.

The response from ‘Pink’ was prompt and a viewing arranged within a day or two.  ‘Pink Real Estate’ are very friendly and helpful; discussing our property and lifestyle likes and dislikes in order to match property to our requirements.  As we had not yet been around the Island ‘Pink’ recommended that we look at other areas before making any decisions.

Within a week we had seen a number of properties and a decision to purchase was made.  We found at this point that ‘Pink’ really came into its own.  The service was excellent from all the staff who took us through all the requirements and processes of purchasing property in Madeira.  As we did not speak Portuguese a staff member accompanied us when we required to deal with government departments and banks.  ‘Pink’ provided us with a list of potential mortgage companies, banks, financial advisors and solicitors and arranged appointments for us once we had decided whom we wished to meet.

We were provided with information relating to becoming resident in the country.  Since our purchase ‘Pink’ have also been available to us at any time to answer any questions, help us deal with any local issues that have arisen (like figuring out our electricity bills), and accompanied us, whenever possible, if required.

We would have no hesitation in recommending ‘Pink Real Estate’ as a top quality agent if you are serious about purchasing property in Madeira.  The team is friendly and professional with an excellent service including ‘after-sale’ service. 

Happy House Hunting!

F.C. Novembro 2011,

I like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for all your assistance and your excellent service throughout the entire purchase process, starting from the first contact, the first email, till the signature of the purchase contract and far beyond that,

what I especially want to mention.


I can't thank you enough for your professionalism, your diligent, expertise and hard work!  Your local real estate knowledge and your exceptional experiences in this market, together with your knowledge about construction and all your attention to my

needs came really into play!

 

Being an out-of-state buyer, I had certain concerns – but your performance as my real estate agency was a true blessing and perfect comfort!  I still cannot believe, we made the whole purchase included various viewings and visitings of various properties

within 2 days.  You went over and above what I expected and only you made this deal happen.  

And therefore I really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, since you make it comes true that I bought a fantastic contemporary superb villa in a great, quiet and spectacular place. 


Thank you for helping me find a perfect home in a perfect location I wanted. I feel certain that without Pink's guidance, patience and exceptional knowledge, I would never have come close to finding, and closing on, such a wonderful property.

Thank you for being always available to all my questions, to all my requirements, during the day, the evening, the night, on the weekends. I' m glad I have your experience on my side, during the purchase process and even after the purchase. Great! 

In an ever changing and difficult real estate environment I found that having "Pink" on my side was and is a tremendous advantage to me, and I am grateful that I found "Pink" and fortunate to know the team around John!


As you know, it is not the first property that I bought and as you know I have worked with several real estate agents at various times, but the service from Pink Real Estate were head and shoulder above any other real estate professional with whom I have 

ever worked.  Honest, strategic, patient, unbelievable customer-oriented, and utterly professional!


Whoever is looking whenever for a property on the wonderful island Madeira should not do this without get to know John and his great team at Pink Real Estate.  They are doing a great and perfect job.  Thanks again to all of you!

Spring 2012

In Spring 2012 we had been looking for a house in Madeira. We did contact the leading realtors. When we arrived in Madeira we have learned that PINK gave us the best service. Mr. Joao, from PINK Real Estate, took a lot of his time, to find out what we had been really looking for and showed us just those houses which would fit our profile. This did save us a lot of time.

With his excellent contacts in the market, especially with banks, he did present us a house, which had not been officially on the market. We took it right away. It was an excellent buy or let’s say bargain. We could have sold the house 2 months later, with a large mark up. But we were already in love with this wonderful house and the location. 

Mr. Joao, an expert not only in the real estate business, also an expert in construction, did help us a lot to redesign our house and get the right construction workers. I can only say: He did a perfect job in 2 months, to remodel our house at outstanding good prices. 

We have learned that PINK Real estate does provide you the full service. Mr. Joao introduced us to one of his lawyers, who made the entire process of buying easy and secure for us. Mrs. Lucy, from PINK real estate, was of excellent help to us, with all the registrations from water to electricity and many things more. From the registration of my imported motor bike and many other services, she was always there to help us, like a good old friend. She always helped us right away, whenever needed. And we did need her quite a lot, as we do not speak Portuguese

Mr. Joao checked weekly the process of the construction work. In 2 moths the job was done, and when we came back to Funchal for our vacations. We found our perfect home, ready to enjoy.  I can only say, PINK Real Estate, did provide the perfect and excellent service to us. “Value added to the client”. After our first vacation in Madeira, which we really did enjoy, we met quite a lot with Mr. Joao and Lucy and we became good friends.

As we are only part time in our house, it is important that someone does take care. Guess who: Pink Real Estate. 

We have bought houses in different countries around the world, but we must say, we have never had such an excellent service as provided by Mr. Joao and Mrs. Lucy, from PINK Real Estate. I can recommend them in the best way. Thank you very much for this excellent service and your friendship
