Ana Caramujo 

Savvy Cat Founder & entrepreneur

 

The Portuguese Real Estate market is a mess. There is barely any exclusivity, constant conflicts of interests, lack of training of agents, unethical behaviors, among other things. I hated this. I actually avoided real estate related professions due to all of the above.

​However, because my family has a long history in real estate investment, I ended up getting involved in it at a very young age. A lot of people came to me for real estate advice.

​One day, I heard the story of a British lady’s experience buying in Portugal. How hard it was when the main concern is not the location. How hard it was to find someone trustworthy.

Something clicked, I realized I could be the change I wanted to see!

Born and raised in Algarve, Andreia got to meet people from diverse countries, which also contributed to her love for traveling and learning about other cultures. Andreia developed a special connection with Haute Savoie (Fr) and Geneva (Sw), where she studied French language and Culture (ELCF). Her creativity led her back to Portugal to complete a degree in jewelry. Having her own atelier, Andreia creates original and personalized pieces that bring much joy to her customers. 

Recently, she felt the need to embrace a new challenge. Being part of the Savvy Cat team is the perfect opportunity to ally her experiences, pride and passion of the Algarve with the sole purpose of creating a positive outcome doing everything and anything for your Portuguese dream to come true.
