“John Malpas was absolutely amazing when we used his services to purchase our home in this city. This wasn't my first time purchasing a home, but it was my first time being overwhelmed with the follow up and the attention to detail. He kept us updated throughout the whole process, he explained everything thoroughly, and he always asked if he could do more. Can't ask for better service from a real estate agent. Thank you John for your dedication and hard work.”
“Buying real estate in a foreign country is scary, but the staff at Ideal Homes made it a lot less so, by finding me a truly spectacular condo, working with the vendor and me to close and complete the deal, and together with their partners, finding me a mortgage, a solicitor and a tax consultant to make navigating the EU bureaucracy easy, when it could so easily have been a nightmare of pitfalls.
Now they're busy managing rentals on the unit with frequent reports on bookings and payments received and the occasional remedial work that needs to be done, and never taking more than a day to reply to any questions I ask them.
“Top class service by a first class team from purchase to rental to cleaning they look after your day to day requirements making your life easy along with referrals to brilliant legal, tax and currency advisors to ensure you can confidently plan for your future in Portugal.”
“We went for 5 days to Vilamoura to buy an apartment. Not knowing anybody, we selected some agencies via internet and Telefone conversations. Not anyone personally knowing, we reacted on verbal conversations and already there, we found, that Dorin Zander of Ideal Homes realised what we wanted and what program we expected. All estate agencies very helpful and nice, but when we met John Malpas we certainly felt to get the right support and confidence. Not buying for any price was important, no, confidence and relationship between buyer and agency (personal) with trust ,makes the deal.
Closing the deal was the peak. We went home with confidence and a fantastic relationship to the whole office of “Ideal Homes”.

“Ideal Homes is a good, long-standing client of ours, always exhibit at our events and work with us on aplaceinthesun.com and A Place in the Sun magazine. We look forward to seeing you all at the NEC in September for A Place in the Sun Live.”
“I bought my first property through Ideal Homes and the whole process went through perfectly - I have since bought another property with them and not just the purchasing went well but I now rent out both properties through Ideal Homes and am so pleased with all my dealings with them - all the staff are knowledgeable, professional and always on hand for any query - I am very pleased with all my dealings I have had with the team”
“Ideal Homes were great at organising our viewing trip and finding the right property for us. They listened to our buying needs and were happy to say if they felt a property wasn’t suitable for us. At the end of our trip we had narrowed our search down to two properties and I asked for an honest opinion. The property which Ideal Homes wasn’t selling was the recommended choice which proves they wanted us to be happy and make the right choice.
We are using the Rentals section of Ideal Homes to manage our property which is faultless. We are so pleased with the whole rental side of things as when we aren’t using it we rent it out.
We thoroughly recommend Ideal Homes both for viewing trips and buying a property abroad and also the rental package which is second to none! We have been happy with their services from the first day of our viewing trip to today as I sit on my veranda in Lagos writing this review!”
“I find Ideal Homes a great company to work with and a great one-stop shop for buying and renting out property. When I was buying my property I spent three days with one of their Real Estate Consultants. His advice when showing me around allowed me to successfully purchase a property that meet all the criteria I had. Since then I have being working with them to successfully rent out my property. With their full rental management service I don’t have to worry about renting out my property, as Ideal Homes manage the process from start to finish. They advise on the legal requirements, advertise the property, take the bookings, look after the guests, so they enjoy their experience, and look after the property to a very high level. I strongly recommend Ideal Homes. Ideal Home is a great company. The service is first class, and all the staff are friendly, professional, knowledgeable and helpful.”
“We bought with ideal homes a few years ago and have just used them again to sell our property. From start to finish the service we received was first class. Ideal homes is a genuine caring company and I would not hesitate to use them again.”
“Ideal Homes are a great company to deal with if you're looking for a property abroad. Friendly and very professional with bags of experience and knowledge of the locations they sell in with a great portfolio of suitable properties. I would definitely recommend talking to Ideal Homes if you're starting thinking of properties abroad.”
“Excellent company who put the customers at the heart of what they do. Friendly and down to earth..none of the cheesy hard sell you can get from other places.
Knowledgable staff who find plenty of options for you when searching for a property.”
“I am just back from an inspection trip to the Costa Blanca. I cannot speak highly enough about the service we received. Ben could not have done any more to make our trip any more successful than it was from start to finish. It is very daunting going to another country to buy property and to understand all that it entails but having someone like Ben there to greet you and to wave you off again having achieved what we went out there for is a reflection on his professionalism and ability to understand what you were looking for. I will definitely recommend Ideal Homes to friends and family and anyone who is looking for a stress free trip to find their place in the sun!”
“We have worked with countless Ideal Homes clients over the years and they have consistently provided great service to a huge number of happy buyers over that time. The team are passionate and knowledgeable - just what you need when buying abroad.”
“A great estate agency. Worked really hard to find me the right property and then helped with buying process through to getting my keys. Made investing in my holiday home abroad a wonderful experience. Thrilled to have corner of the sun, Thank you Ideal Homes!”
