Lago Real - the company, our history and our future


Lago Real, founded by Jorge Apolo - a name now synonymous with Quinta do Lago and the Golden Triangle - first opened its doors in 1999 as a boutique, luxury real estate agency. Intent on offering a bespoke service to property buyers and vendors in the Golden Triangle area of the Algarve, our clients are not just another number on a sales chart but people who we go above and beyond for to help find their dream home in the sun.

Jorge started to work in Quinta do Lago in 1976 and since then has grown with the area, its real estate and its community. Commitment and dedication are qualities which characterise Jorge and it is these core values that each and every member of his team also share.

Since the first day we opened our doors we have kept to our word - we select properties which are tailor-made to the needs and wishes of our clients, we are passionate about property and provide a first class, personalised, real service to all of our buyers and vendors. We pride ourselves that each and every property we choose to market is fairly priced and represents a good investment.

Throughout the years we have helped thousands of clients find their dream home in the sun and allowed vendors to sell their remarkable properties with ease and efficiency. We are not an agency focused on getting the sale at whatever cost, we are an agency who wants a great sale for both our buyers and our vendors.

We pride ourselves on the name Lago Real has within the real estate sector. We have a huge network of clients which we have gathered through recommendations, referrals and word of mouth. However, with the advent of technology a whole new way to reach out to clients arrived and we are not a company to stay in the dark ages. A new website, social media channels, advertising on the world stage, blogging and the occasional vlog are now added to our repertoire to connect with prospective clients, but our core values are still the same - we meet our clients expectations with honesty, respect, hard work and loyalty. We always give 100% to make sure our clients are happy and their dreams recognised.

From our years of experience we have gained a truly unique and in-depth knowledge of the local market. Our honesty, professionalism and integrity, together with our understanding of the market makes us real and sets us apart from the crowd. We are here to guide you through the process to ensure you buy the perfect property easily and without any stress. We remain proactive at every stage of the process - whether it's your first purchase overseas or another to add to your growing portfolio, we are here every step of the way - let us guide you home.
