A Very Happy Vendor – Margaretha – Tavira


Ich hatte in Luz de Tavira, 200m nördlich der 125 ein Grundstück mit einem Steinhaus mit 2 Schlafzimmern, (das eine wurde in ein Büro umgewandelt) und einem sehr gemütlichen Holzhaus, ebenfalls mit 2 Schlafzimmern. Im Grundstück stehen knapp 60 Orangen-Mandarinen- und Zitronenbäume. Der Garten ist ein alt eingewachsener Garten mit Blumen, 2 kleinen Gemüsegärten und einigen versteckten lauschigen Plätzen zum sitzen mit jeweils einem anderen Blick in den Garten. Obwohl es so central und nahe der 125 liegt, ist es absolut ruhig.

Lisa hat sich sehr viel Zeit genommen um alles anzuschauen und aufzunehmen. Sie hatte sofort erfasst, daß dies ein besonderer Platz ist und sicherlich nicht Jeder die besondere Atmosphäre aufnehmen würde. Sie bezeichnete es als „hidden jewel“.

Die Interessenten, die das Haus angeschaut hatten, waren alle begeistert, allerdings war es eben zu klein. Es gab Interessenten, die keine guten Absichten hatten, Lisa jedoch konnte von Anfang an alle Schwierigkeiten abwenden, da sie sehr vorsichtig und kritisch die Dinge betrachtete.

Eines Tages hatte Lisa Interessenten, von denen sie sagte „die verstehen die Atmosphäre in dem Grundstück, das sind die Richtigen“. Und sie waren es auch.

Die gesamte Abwicklung lief reibungslos ohne irgendwelche Probleme, absolut professionell aber mit dem persönlichen Touch.

Das Beste an dem Verkauf ist, daß wir uns mit den neuen Besitzern angefreundet haben und wir jetzt auf „unserer“ alten Terrasse gemeinsam schöne Stunden verbringen.

Ich möchte mich ganz herzlich bei Lisa bedanken für ihre Vermittlung. Mit ihr zu arbeiten war eine Freude. Sie hat eine besondere Gabe Dinge zu sehen und zu erfühlen, kritisch genug um aufkommende Schwierigkeiten zu erkennen und zu reagieren aber auch die Professionalität alles ruhig und ohne Probleme abzuwickeln.

Ich wünsche Lisa weiterhin so viel Erfolg und kann sie nur bestens empfehlen.



I had a plot of land in Luz de Tavira, 200m north of 125, with a stone house with 2 bedrooms (one was converted into an office) and a very cozy wooden house, also with 2 bedrooms.  There are almost 60 orange, tangerine  and lemon trees on the property.  The garden is an old ingrown garden with flowers, 2 small vegetable gardens and some hidden, secluded places to sit, each with a different view of the garden.  Although it is so central and close to 125, it is absolutely quiet.

Lisa took a lot of time to look at and record everything.  She had immediately realized that this is a special place and certainly not everyone would absorb the special atmosphere.  She referred to it as “hidden jewel”.

The interested parties who had looked at the house were all enthusiastic, but it was just too small.  There were interested parties who did not have good intentions, but Lisa was able to avert all difficulties from the start because she viewed things very carefully and critically.

One day Lisa had interested parties, of whom she said “they understand the atmosphere on the property, they are the right people”.  And they were too.

The entire process went smoothly without any problems, absolutely professional but with a personal touch.

The best thing about the sale is that we have made friends with the new owners and we can now spend wonderful hours together on “our” old terrace.

I would like to thank Lisa very much for her mediation.  Working with her was a pleasure.  She has a special gift to see and feel things, critically enough to recognize and react to emerging difficulties, but also the professionalism to handle everything smooth and without problems.

I wish Lisa so much success for the future and I can only recommend her highly.

Dave & Sue – Tavira – Sold Their Apartment

I thought I should send you an email to say how pleased we have been with the service that you gave us during the sale of our apartment.

 As you know we had our apartment on the market for just over nine months with another estate agent before we asked you to market our property with only a few enquiries for it.

 From our initial meeting when we discussed at length the sale process and how much we could achieve for the sale you were very professional

 Immediately we were both very pleased with the number of enquiries we received and were very surprised how quickly you managed to sell our apartment for us and for very close to the asking price, which was still higher than we had previously asked by the other agent.

 Upon agreement being reached for the sale, you then kept us informed of how the sale process was progressing up until the completion of the sale, which was only three weeks after the sale being agreed.

 We are very impressed by you and your company and would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of our friends, and would definitely use you again if and when we decide to sell our Villa in Altura.

 Myself and Sue would like to thank you all

Roy & Gill – Settled into Their New Home After Renovating – Fuseta

We were delighted with the service we received (and the endless patience shown) from LwL Properties when searching for our perfect property.  We eventually bought our house in December 2016 and, once again, they were very helpful all the way through the buying process and, after completion of the  purchase, they again helped us on numerous occasions by answering all the small questions that arise when moving to another country with different rules and procedures. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble!

We could not recommend them highly enough


Chris & Sarah – Fuseta – Happy Vendors

Just a quick note to pass on our thanks for the professional way in which you and Lisa managed the sale of our property in the Algarve.

We were very sad to be selling our beautiful villa having had many very enjoyable family holidays in the Algarve but sadly there comes a time when the family grows up and it becomes clear that we and they had other priorities.

The whole sale process was conducted without issues and completed in good time.  One day we may well return to the Algarve – So please do let us know if our beautiful house is ever put back on the market, we might just buy it back.

Thanks once again for a job well done.

David – Tavira – Loves his New Appartment

I decided to look at purchasing a property in Portugal last year and was very pleased with all the people at LWL Properties .

I was shown some apartments on the Tavira Garden complex which was where I decided I would like to buy and was shown the 2 that I was interested in by Susanna who was so helpful with everything including finding a lawyer, and also a currency company that the whole process was carried out with no problems at all.

I was a little concerned as it was my first purchase but it couldn’t have been easier.

I have since reccommended them to one person who is using them to sell her apartment on the same complex and have also reccommended them to a friend who is now looking to buy.

They couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful and I am so pleased that I chose them for my property purchase.




Roland & Kath – Happy Vendors

I would like to express our appreciation for the way you handled the sale and execution of the completion of our property at Tavira Gardens.  

We were very pleased that LwL Properties found the buyer, you deserved it for the manner you handled the viewings, feedback to us and the attention to every detail during the very rapid completion process.   

We both wish you every success in the future and we will call in to say hello when we are next in Tavira.

Nicole and Jacques F. from Paris, happy new owners in Sao Romao

Our experience with LWL Properties :

In June 2014, my husband and I decided to sell a house we owned in the south of France and look for a house in Algarve. After visiting 14 houses in 4 days through different realtors, we decided on a charming and completely renovated old farm advertised and presented by LWL properties located in Tavira. It fitted everything we had wished for: spacious and comfortable home, nice pool and view on the hills, half an hour from Faro airport.

Our whole buying experience was just great! We got answers to our many questions. We were explained all kind of details about the house and its amenities, not only during our first visit but during a second one I made a week later. Lisa Lokkerbol organized this second visit with the sellers who explained so many aspects of their daily living in this house and in the area.

The final deed was signed on the 8th of September, and there again Lisa was there to welcome us in our new home and refresh our minds about everything the house has to offer.

It was clear to me that the relationship and the trust built between the sellers and Lisa made it possible for us to feel confident along the whole transaction. The office staff did a perfect job answering quickly any of our mails from Paris.

I have already recommended LWL Properties to friends who are considering buying a house in Algarve. And I do intend to stop by LWL properties in Tavira just to say hello and thank you again!


Notre expérience avec LWL Properties:

En juin dernier mon mari et moi avons décidé de vendre notre résidence secondaire dans le sud de la France et d’acheter une maison en Algarve. En 4 jours nous avons visité 14 maisons avec différents agents immobiliers, et eu un vrai coup de cœur pour une ferme centenaire, complètement rénovée, équipée de tout le confort moderne, présentée par LWL Properties, situé à Tavira.

Maison spacieuse, confortable, jolie piscine, vue sur les collines, à moins de 30 minutes de l’aéroport de Faro. Correspondant donc complètement à ce à quoi nous aspirions.Lisa Lokkerbol gérante de LWL Properties, a rendu toute cette expérience agréable et plus que satisfaisante. Non seulement nous a-t-elle permis de découvrir toutes les particularités et installations de cette maison, mais elle nous a aussi renseignés sur beaucoup d’aspects de la vie au Portugal, ce qui était très précieux.

Et ceci dès la première visite. Une seconde visite organisée par elle à notre demande, une semaine plus tard, m’a permis un nouveau contact avec les vendeurs qui à nouveau m’ont expliqué en détails toutes les installations de la maison et leur expérience de vie en Algarve.

L’acte de vente a été signé le 8 septembre et Lisa Lokkerbol là encore était présente pour nous accueillir dans notre nouvelle maison et nous aider à nous approprier les lieux dans la bonne humeur.

Nous avons déjà recommandé LWL Properties à des amis souhaitant dans un futur proche acheter une maison en Algarve.

Neil & Lisa Enjoying their new apartment – Cabanas de Tavira

Lisa and Dalia have helped us considerably with our purchase of a 3 bedroom apartment near Tavira. They have always been on hand to assist with any issues and respond to our numerous questions, before, during and subsequent to the purchase of the property.

They have made the process an enjoyable experience and we have valued their expertise and willingness to go above and beyond what we would expect from an agent. Nothing has been too much trouble for them and we would not hesitate to recommend LwL Properties to anyone who is interested in buying a property in the Eastern Algarve.


Mr & Mrs Sharpe Love their new apartment

June 2015. Outstanding service!!

If you are looking for a property to buy in Tavira or the surrounding area then purchasing a property from LwL properties could not be more simple and straight forward. Lisa and Dalia are fantastic in every way in making the purchase go smoothly.

We bought an apartment in Tavira through LwL properties in February but then had to return to England. We were kept informed of developments on a weekly basis and any questions or worries were promptly dealt with and responded to.

In addition, Lisa drove us around Tavira showing us the main areas and attractions and even where the best restaurants were. She put us in contact with a local firm of solicitors who spoke very good English. Lisa also put us in contact with a local furniture company who put together a furniture package and installed it for us. Dalia instructed a media company to set up broadband, wifi, landline and a TV package which was installed for us before we returned in June. She also had the apartment cleaned for us and the locks changed before the furniture was installed.

When we arrived in June we walked into a completely furnished apartment with all amenities working. Brilliant ! No stress at all!!

I cannot speak highly enough of this company. It is really a complete package they offer you and they are extremely helpful in every way.
