My name is Joanna Lopes, my love affair with the Algarve goes back over 25 years. My husband, though born in London, has Portuguese roots and we married in the Algarve in 1998 and decided it was where we wanted to live, work and bring up our family. Our enthusiasm and knowledge of life in Portugal, is brought across to our work with clients everyday. We have a personal interest in making sure all our clients are well supported and informed in selling and buying their homes, which we understand is one of the biggest investments they will ever make.
