DRUM ROLL, PLEASE! YOU GOT...
Alfacinhas is a term referring to the habitants of Lisbon, literally meaning “little lettuce”, and was popularized by the famous Portuguese author Almeida Garrett.
You're a cosmopolitan person! Your sophisticated taste and your instinct for exploring new things makes you a trend-setter without even trying! You tend to be a natural born leader because of your charming personality.
Lisbon is definitely the place for you! The capital and the most popular city in Portugal is where all the action is! It’s the perfect mix of modern and historical, rustic and elegant, typical and touristic.
For being one of the hottest cities in Europe to live in, expect higher living standards and costs here. Rent is very high and buying is even higher! But it’s completely worth it considering it is the country’s main commercial, touristic and cultural hub. It’s also a hot spot for investors, businesses and digital nomads. Another beautiful city just 30 minutes away from the capital is Cascais. Cascais is truly an elegant city with the perfect balance between sophisticated contemporary urban living and natural beauty.
The city manages to escape the long and cold winters or overbearingly hot summers due to its proximity to Serra de Sintra.
It’s the clear choice not only for the expat community ranging from digital nomads to retirees, but also to the rich and famous. Because of its popularity and privilege location, expect to find one of the highest property and rent prices of the country.
Other cities to consider include: Sintra and Mafra

Hello there! I'm Ana Caramujo
Catch you're Portuguese Dream with us
Savvy Cat came to be because I found the way the Portuguese Real Estate market operates extremely dysfunctional and figured I could do things in a way I think is fair and allows for a high standard of service quality for buyers.
OUR BUSINESS MODEL was designed to provide the best possible service to the buyer, and make sure our clients know exactly what they are getting into prior to purchase.
We have exclusivity with all our clients and will show our them everything, including off market deals we come across, with full transparency.
WHAT WE STAND FOR! Savvy Cat Realty values ethics and as a business we are very concerned with cultural and economic sustainability, our goal is to slow down gentrification by making sure foreign buyers make informed purchases that are not overpriced. We believe this helps both the new expats as they likely spend less plus have a much smoother relocation process with support from local business and the local community as it boosts the economy by bringing cash flow in a sustainable way.
Our Promise, is to help you achieve
... your plans of moving to Portugal!
We are with all our clients at every stage, from advice, planning, research, communication, everything you may need to smooth out your relocation to Portugal.
LOCAL PERSPECTIVE & INSIGHT Countrywide
Another thing that makes us stand out is that we work countrywide, allowing our clients to explore different locations without having to contact different agencies. If you have an ideal and not a location when it comes to property, we will likely be a great fit for your needs, as a big part of our service is to help our client find the best location for them (taking in consideration factors from lifestyle to budget and requirements). This works smoothly because Savvy Cat’s agents are not competing against each other, they are collaborating as a team in order to help our clients to the best of our ability.
TAILORED SERVICES FOR YOUR PERSONAL NEEDS
We provide a lot more service than typical real estate agencies: we support with the visas, renovations, licenses, construction, documentation, opening bank accounts, networking for professionals, we do tours, we do verifications, we work with off market properties, we do reports and much more. Of course in order to be committed to do all this my staff needs to be paid, independently of sale. The system we found for this to work is to have service packages that need to be purchased prior to the property transaction, as a big part of the service will be provided prior to purchase.
Savvy Cat Realty also has Lawyers on payroll and includes legal verification of real estate transactions and documentation as well as visa documentation and process (consultation time is limited by package, Golden Visa applications are not covered – but we do offer discounted rates with some lawyer partners).
