Filipa Santos

Real Estate Consultant

As a Portuguese-Canadian realtor who has lived in both countries a number of years, Filipa is fully fluent in English and Portuguese.  This allows her to specialize in working with clients from across the globe (Filipa currently works with 90%+ foreign clients).  Having resided a good part of her life in Canada, in which she had the experience of buying and selling several properties herself, Filipa is very aware of the questions asked, the expectations, and needs of those coming from another culture.

In her 7 years experience in RE/MAX, she has always focused first and foremost on client care and complete satisfaction.  At this point in her career, the great majority of her clients come from referrals of those who have worked with her in the past.

Filipa has helped countless clients in their relocation process to Portugal – whether helping them secure residency through a Golden Visa, D7 Visa, or otherwise.  As such, she has at her fingertips all of the resources needed and experienced professionals to recommend in various areas that complement her work – to make the process as smooth and seamless as possible.

Whether to buy, sell or lease a property in greater Lisbon (Sintra, Cascais, Oeiras), Filipa is here to help.

Testimonials

Filipa is a very professional and friendly person. We have been looking for a suitable apartment for us for a long time. Filipa listened to all our wishes and with her guidance and patience we were able to find the perfect option very quickly. I am very grateful for such kind and attentive attitude and would gladly recommend her to others.

Anna Valik, Russia

Filipa’s professionalism, knowledge of the market and friendliness are unparalleled. Honestly, I had never met anyone in this field with such dedication and knowledge of the market as Filipa. Filipa exceeded any expectations we had and made this process a safe, calm and above all very, very rewarding experience.
It is impressive how Filipa perfectly understood our needs, our taste and our limitations. It’s not easy to find something that is only in our imagination, but Filipa did it.
The confidence and security we felt from the first day we met Filipa, left us feeling relaxed and sure that we would find “OUR HOME”. Starting with market prospecting, advice on bank credit, the bureaucratic issues of these processes, the lease of our current house and all the advice over time, Filipa proved to be a professional that exceeds any expectations.
I can’t get tired of describing the experience we had to our friends and I can’t imagine moving to another home again without Filipa’s help. I can only thank Filipa and her entire team for making our dream come true, and in such a professional and friendly way. I wish Filipa and her entire team all the best. They deserve all the successes they have and will have. [translation from Portuguese]

Filipa Santos and her team exceeded our expectations when it came to purchasing our new home. Filipa guided us through the entire process, from listening intently to our needs, patiently answering all of our questions, showing us a variety of properties, and providing support as needed. Her honest and experienced advice was invaluable and we felt so taken care of every step of the way. We know she and her team are very busy with many other clients, but we always felt like we were her only client. We can not recommend Filipa highly enough. If you are looking to purchase a home, contact Filipa, you won’t be disappointed.

Jody Temple White, USA

I have no words to express my gratitude for the commitment and dedication that Filipa had in our house search process. Filipa accompanied us in the search for a property to buy for over a year, never giving up on looking for properties that fit our criteria. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, with an orientation towards excellent customer service, she not only guided us in the home purchase but also in the process of renting our current home. Both professionally and personally, it was a pleasure to work with Filipa, who exceeded expectations at every stage of the process. Thank you for everything. [translation from Portuguese]

As a realtor and landlord, Filipa Santos is very professional and responsive. Most importantly she is caring and compassionate to both her clients and those less fortunate. It was our good fortune to connect with Filipa and we highly recommend her.

Norma Jean, USA

Filipa is super professional, she helped us to find the right property for us in a tight time, while there is a high competition and dynamic rent market season.

Mohd HaLabi, Jordan

Filipa Santos and her team are absolutely outstanding. Moving from another country is never easy and having done it before, we were prepared for stress and mad dashes to tie loose ends. But with our latest move to Lisbon, Filipa and her team (Rodrigo + Ana) went above and beyond. Our move was absolutely seamless. We couldn’t physically visit the apartment beforehand, but Filipa worked closely with us to provide us as much documentation/videos to be able to pick the perfect apartment. She then worked with her team to help set up all utilities so that when we arrived, the apartment was ready to go. They are all so communicative, checking in and helping us coordinate. We are so happy with our new home, and are grateful to Filipa for helping us as much as she did. Highly recommend!

Myra Castaneda, France

Filipa was amazing to work with. She was incredibly responsive, quick to act, and very professional. She acts quickly and with her clients’ best interest in mind. I would absolutely use her services again and recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or rent a home. Thank you Filipa!

Filipa was amazing! She was able to get us a last minute showing and we were able to sign a lease on the first apartment we looked at. She is very thorough and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new place to live!

We are American citizens who recently bought a place in Portugal. Filipa was our agent and we could not have been happier with her. She took care of everything, seamlessly. Incredibly knowledgeable about the market and the process and all the ins and outs of dealing with international customers. Responded rapidly to all of our questions and has tons of great connections to facilitate getting set up over there. I am used to American realtors who do practically nothing and make a ton of money and only seem concerned about their commission. This experience with Fillipa was the polar opposite. We let her serve as our power of attorney so we didn’t even have to appear in person for the closing. I could not recommend highly enough. My cousin referred us to her and they were thrilled with her as well.

Me and my wife as ex-pats had absolutely great experience with Filipa. If it wasn’t for her, we wouldn’t have had our flat right now. Market in Portugal/Cascais was very difficult, we couldn’t find any flats or realtors to help us. When we’ve lost our hope after seeing how fast the real estate market is, Filipa with her professional approach, and positive energy has saved us. She’s been with us from the first moment to the last with her useful information and support.

I can write pages about how happy we are to be able to do business with her but I don’t want to take anyone’s time. It was worth it.

Totally recommend. Trust and you will thank later.

"This was our first international transaction, so the stress level was a bit high."

Rated 5 out of 5
July, 2022

We worked with Filipa Santos on our first apartment purchase in Lisbon. We have high performing agents and brokers in our family here in the US and have done a fair number of transactions over the years. This was our first international transaction, so the stress level was a bit high. Filipa was very generous with her time, taking me to view property in around and Lisbon on multiple occasions. When we finally decided on the specifics of what we wanted to find, she did numerous virtual tours in places and their neighborhoods to help us really see the places. She listed to our feedback and was instrumental in finding this place that we’re so excited about. Filipa and her team helped to make the transaction very smooth and stress free. She has a solid network of professionals that support pre ad post sales needs. We highly recommend Filipa’s services.

Extremely competent, available and friendly team! We were in a hurry to sell our old apartment to buy a bigger property. Filipa Santos and her team helped us throughout the process, from the sale of our old property, search for better mortgage credit conditions on the market, to the purchase of our new property. Without the competence and speed of the team, we would not have completed the process in 2 months!

Filipa Santos has been outstanding in helping me find a property in Portugal.

She is both knowledgeable and intuitive, with a firm understanding of the Portuguese housing market.

I wouldn’t have been able to make the transition as an ex-pat, without her expertise. I highly recommend Filipa and her team. 5 stars 🌟

Filipa Santos provided excellent service while I searched for an apartment online from Denver. She went the extra mile to help explain the leasing process for me, very knowledgeable and professional. The process happened in record timing, was quick and efficient to confirm the apartment and complete the lease agreement. Will certainly be using Filipa and team when I look at purchasing a home in Portugal. If you are looking to rent or purchase and are a foreign client, they are the best. Fabulous experience.
