Your Trusted Real Estate Partner In The Algarve


The Algarve is a leading global destination for living, retirement and investment and the founder of ONE Select Properties, José Carvalho, has been driven by this vision for the past 30 years spent in the local business.

As a family run luxury real estate agency, ONE Select Properties was founded on a love for the Algarve and determination to share our passion for this stunning region of Portugal. Focussed exclusively in the areas of Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura we are always happy to share with our clients this marvellous corner of the world.

We are aware this is more than buying a home, this is buying a lifestyle, a luxury way of living and that is exactly why our team is willing to help and support. Whether you are selling your investment property to achieve target returns, or finding your dream home for living in Portugal, our objective is to understand and help you fulfil your financial and lifestyle goals.

We know that people prefer to do business with those they like and trust. Many of our clients from around the world who come to us to talk about Algarve property remain friends long after their sale or purchase has been successfully concluded. We believe that the strength and length of our relationships is the true measure of our success, rather than the number of villas and houses we sell.
