What Our Clients Say

I was very pleased with the service that we received from Spencer Becks. Nothing was too much trouble and they went the extra mile to make sure that everything was done correctly. One always hears horror stories about Estate Agents but you can rest assured that this wont happen with Spencer Becks.

I can highly recommend Spencer Becks Estate Agents, I had my property for sale with 4 other agents for well over a year and only had 2 viewings in that time, as soon as I put my property with Valerie´s agency I had viewings immediately and my property was sold within a few months!

We have always found Spencer Becks to be extremely friendly , very professional , and nothing is too much trouble for them. After looking at numerous houses they found us just the right one. The after sales service is also second to none. We would definitely recommend them.

If you want to buy a property in Portugal, whether it’s a holiday home, permanent residence or a dream project, you need to use Spencer Becks. Valerie and her team have a wealth of knowledge and experience that will ensure your property purchase is simple and stress free. I have never experienced such a level of professionalism accompanied by genuine care and consideration. My Portugal dream would never have been possible without Spencer Becks. I can not recommend them highly enough.

We had dealings with Valerie before she made the move to open her own business and luckily she took us with her! It took us a while to find the right property, but with Valerie’s help (and never ending patience!) we found it! We have always found Valerie very helpful, and so it continues long after we bought the house and made the move in July 2019. More than happy to recommend Spencer Becks to anyone looking to buy here in Portugal!

Spencer Becks gave us a very honest appraisal when we decided to place our holiday home on the market. The advice we received from Valerie proved to be invaluable and we would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone looking to purchase in the future.

We are so lucky that we found Valerie and Ron of Spencer Becks Real Estate. Ron made buying our house an enjoyable and easy experience. They listened to our needs. Quick to respond and will do anything to help, we highly recommend them! Thank you all. Ettienne and Nelia.

We have sold several houses. The service we received from Valerie & Ron was the best ever. The house was sold amazingly fast. Valerie kept in constant contact throughout the process, she even managed to arrange the sale of furniture we no longer required.. Truly 5 star service.

I have to say that Spencer Becks have been absolutely fantastic, I had my property on with another site (mention no names] who I may add are suppose to be such a famous Group, they did nothing whatsoever did not pass emails on etc, then I changed and went with Spencer Becks who have been so helpful, always there at the drop of a hat, always answered emails and phone calls straight away, even tho they are very busy they always had time to chat and help with problems even ones that were nothing to do with sales, so helpful the after care is brilliant too, would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell with them, thank you and the lovely staff for all your help.

We purchased our house in central Portugal with Spencer Becks. The service was first rate. Nothing was too much trouble. They were brilliant, helping us all the way through the purchasing process and helping us settle in to the area. Helping us with residency, setting up electricity and water billing. Even now, over one year later Valerie is still there for us when we need help and advice. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough….fantastic service. Many thanks to you all, in making our retirement dream come true.

I cannot recommend the Spencer Becks agency highly enough – and I have had experience of them both as a purchaser and a vendor. They are all thoroughly pleasant people to deal with and they go that bit further to help make what can be a stressful time a little easier for everyone. Thank you team!

Tracey Jukes, via Google

Great service and a friendly team. Valerie provided us with so much help when we were house hunting and went to a lot of effort to make it a relatively smooth process. There’s so much to know about the way real estate works in your non-native country that it’s reassuring to have someone provide sound advice and guide you through the process. Highly recommend.

I used Spencer Becks to purchase my house in Alvaiázere. I can honestly say they have been wonderful, everything went exactly to plan. Even now after the purchase is complete I have a support network through the Spencer Becks team. Thank you for such a positive experience.

We were initially looking at properties inland but came across the stunning property we have bought through the professional help of Valerie and her staff.

We first came over to Portugal for a viewing and were looked after by Ron who was very professional and had a wealth of knowledge about the area which he gladly shown us on virtually a full day out!! topped off with lunch in the village we were moving to 🙂 and an invite to the local bowling alley in the evening where we met lots of other people who had moved to the area. (Had a great night too!!) We returned again with our children for a second visit where we met Valerie, who spent time and had breakfast with us. Valerie also shared her knowledge and experiences she had come across whilst in Portugal. All of which were very encouraging for us to make the move. As we have children of school age it was a massive decision for us to move to this wonderful part of the world.

We have also found Valerie to be totally supportive throughout the whole process. Our moving idea started in February 2020 and with all the covid situation, it is still active into August 2020. Valerie has been totally supportive throughout even if you have a ‘daft’ question, Valerie is there to give you an answer or she will know somebody who knows the answer. We couldn’t of asked to meet a greater team of people to help us find the home we wanted.

We totally encourage anybody who wants to find property to use Spencer Becks!!!
