João Passos

Team Leader

After more than 13 years at RE/MAX as a Real Estate Consultant, and since 2015 as Team Leader of the João Passos & Vítor Andrade Team, João Passos continues to prove that passion and dedication are synonymous with satisfied clients.

As a result of a commitment and focus on customer service, João has managed to make a difference in a saturated market, where differentiation is almost non-existent and customer focus is often replaced by commission focus.

A great advocate of training as a means of achieving the level of professionalization necessary for the team’s value proposition, João Passos is a member of NAR (Realtor) and is internationally certified as an ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist) and CRS (Certified Residential Specialist).

This culture of excellence extends to the entire team, which works hard with the same objective: to achieve maximum levels of customer satisfaction.

With a significant part of his clients coming from the LGBTI+ community, nationally and internationally, João and his team are proud to be a reference “in the celebration of diversity”. Homes for Everyone is the team’s motto.

The successive awards João has won over the years, with special emphasis on the LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT career award (in 2020), and the choice by FORBES Portugal as one of the 10 Best Agents in Portugal (in 2018), are the corollary of many years of hard but rewarding work.

But, since always, João’s greatest reward has been the ability to make a difference in his clients’ lives and help them make their dreams come true. And in this way, João’s dreams have also been fulfilled: traveling and seeing the world, being a “father” of two cats, and enjoying his family and circle of friends.


I have been buying and letting properties through João Passos and his team previously, and recently I sold an apartment through them. They have confident knowledge about the market and the service is amazing. They are extremely professional and helpful throughout the whole process. I couldn’t recommend João and his team more if you are selling, letting or buying a property in Lisbon.

We intended to invest in a property that we could rent out to provide some income. Thanks to João and his team, it was a success! João not only has the advantage of knowing the real estate market extremely well, but he was also able to follow every step with the same conviction, once the deal was closed. First with the ownership of the property and later with the lease, we could always count on him since he follows our interests first. A special acknowledgement to Rodrigo Gaspar. Rodrigo’s interaction with the new tenants was indispensable throughout the process. Thanks for everything! It’s a team that we highly recommend and that we work with in the future, without hesitation!

I purchased an apartment using João Passos and his team. They listened to what I wanted. I flew to Lisbon and they showed me my top listings I had selected plus others. I ended up buying a listing that João recommended that wasn’t on my list. So if it wasn’t for João I wouldn’t found my perfect apartment. Highly recommend!

João Passos and his team are the ultimate professionals. They are very knowledgeable of the market and will help you get the best price for your property.

The team also has a lot of experience working with foreign clients and understands their needs quite well. João was able to help us understand all the necessary documentation due to his superior English speaking capabilities.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with João on two transactions: buying and selling. Both were handled very professionally. He was in constant communication and kept us informed every step of the way.
We highly recommend João Passos and his team.

João, Filipa and their team are very very good. They go the extra mile to help clients, big or small and never fail to find a solution. If you are thinking of buying or selling through them and are a foreign client, they are the best. I give them 5 + ⭐️ for customer service and sales expertise. Fabulous experience.

I moved from Texas to Lisbon. A friend connected me with João and his company. After a brief but thorough interview, they were able to help me find the perfect apartment in record time. They felt like family. Great advice and the ability to help bridge my gap of knowledge and everything from rentals, to utilities, to contracts, to when to take the trash out! They knew and understood. Highly recommended.
