OUR BACKGROUND

Before becoming a professional challenge, Portugal & You was a personal, family and human adventure.

In Spring 2017, after having spent half of their life working in France, our parents wanted to come back to live in Portugal (their native country) to spend their retirement; they asked us to help them.

After many weeks of research during which we were lacking in specialised contact persons to facilitate the administrative, legal, cultural and linguistic aspects, we decided to roll up our sleeves and do everything ourselves.

Fortunately, we speak Portuguese and English which helped us succeed in our mission to help our parents buy a house close to Lisbon, overcoming difficulties related to funding, travel and several contact persons.

This is why we decided to help other people in their expatriation and investment projects in Portugal … Portugal & You was born!

"Your project will be OUR project"

Our ambition: help everyone, every company or organisation with a real estate investment or expatriation project in Portugal to achieve their aim as quickly as possible and in the best possible way.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Who better than expatriates to help other expatriates?

Our main mission is to assist you in your life project or your real-estate investment in Portugal. We are on hand for the local organisations and partners, thus ensuring that your project will be achieved in the best conditions.

Our experience has proved that professionalism, performance, quality of work are inextricably linked to attentiveness, comprehension, exchange and empathy.

Our wish is to satisfy you without ever forgetting the human aspect and service.

In the 20thcentury, companies are not managed as before ; new preoccupations have emerged such as :

  • Human relationships in work
  • Gender equality
  • Well-being at work

« Of humans you will preoccupy ! »

These issues have led us to create a business which puts the men and the women at the first level of our company.

In creating Portugal & You, we have imagined a business that is guided by these principles rather than by rules.

Portugal & You’s Philosophy:

Performance for Humans by Humans

So, our relationship with every collaborator, every partner, every customer is inextricably linked to our human values.

WHY PORTUGAL & YOU ?

I am French and I have spent most of my career in Paris, city of lights. 18 years ago, I went to Portugal for the first time. In summer 2002, the man who was to become my husband was waiting for me at Lisbon airport, holding a sign with my name on it. Such a romantic!

Time has passed. We have 2 children and go to Portugal almost every year during the summer holidays. Every time we are filled with joy by its kindness, character, culture, landscapes, weather and food of course!

Having the opportunity to create a company to help other people to live in Portugal, assisting them with their project, was more than just a desire, it was obvious!

I was born in Lisbon and came to Paris with my family when I was 10 years old.

Despite the happiness that France has brought me, I have never forgotten my roots, and I come back to my native country as often as possible, like many Portuguese people.

When my wife told me about her desire to create a services company in Portugal, I threw myself entirely into that challenge.

Portugal & You is the perfect opportunity for me to help our clients to set up home in Portugal as my family was helped when we arrived in France in 1995 …

OUR CAREER

I trained as a Personal Assistant and I have worked as that since 2006 in various companies from different fields of activities, such as pharmaceutical, law firm or wholesale.

My rigour, my organisational skills and my knowledge in administrative management are my main qualities provided for our clients and partners, not forgetting the human aspect which is so important to me.

I am trained in sales. I worked my way up the ladder over almost 15 years becoming Sales Development Manager in a French Building Engineering company.

Figures, growth; more, always more and even more; this was my daily grind.

I then decided to create my own company with the aim of putting service and mostly Human aspects at the heart of my professional activity.

OUR HOBBIES

I would like to say that sport is my only passion but I would be lying. I also love food, too much in my opinion, and all the times spent around a good meal, with family or friends in a nice place.

I also enjoy reading, travelling, the sun and most of all my children and my husband.

I am very curious and nomadic. I like learning and discovering as much as possible. My hobbies include golf, football, reading, films and most of all spending time with those I love.

Obviously, these passions are nothing compared to the love for my children and my wife who, as you can imagine, didn’t force me into making that statement!

OUR MOTTO

"Be the actor of your own life and you will never have regrets”

“In life, I never lose, either I win or I learn”
