Welcome to VilaBranca Property & Leisure

Why Vila Branca Property? Why Brazil?
The straightforward answer is experience, expertise, reliability, reputation and location.

We ourselves have been resident and active in Brazil for over 30 years, much of the time in the Northeast region where we maintain strong commercial and family links. Our long-standing connections in many areas of the local business communities enable us to provide our clients with a truly comprehensive service of the highest quality.

Our overseas partners have been carefully chosen for the wide variety of their property portfolios and their proven ability to understand and deal sympathetically with clients from abroad. In fact a number of our prime contacts have themselves also worked extensively in Europe. The owners and their staff are all extremely well qualified and have many years of real-estate experience in this region.

Peace of mind is essential when buying abroad, and in order to guarantee this for our clients, we ensure that all our partner companies and staff are Government licensed, registered and qualified to the levels required by law. Similarly, all their supporting companies who provide legal, technical, logistic and other essential back-up services are also fully accredited and highly experienced.

In view of the geographical distances between us, great care has been taken when selecting our overseas partners to ensure we are working with an organisation of trust and integrity and one that enjoys a reputation totally above reproach in the market in which they operate.

Associated as we are with some of the more successful local property companies, we provide our clients with an insider’s access to one of the fastest-growing markets in the world. Partly on account of its relative proximity to Western Europe(7 hours) and the United States(6 hours) the area has recently been the target of substantial investment by multi-national property developers, but remains largely ignored by many smaller investors. With Brazil now amongst the ranks of the major economies, we foresee a surge in interest from foreign buyers during the next few years, when more people discover the multiple benefits of investing in this fascinating country.

Most of the foregoing also applies to Brazil’s mother country, Portugal where we have been engaged in real estate since 1984. Here, a similar network has been established with a small number of carefully selected professionals providing a high quality bespoke service. Our aim is to provide a complete and personal service for those in search of their own special property.

The Future
We recently added California to our global portfolio where we are now working with a well established realtor and long standing colleague, highly rated in property circles in Northern California. Her portfolio is extensive and of remarkable quality with some truly delightful properties in the San Francisco Bay area in particular.  Plans are in hand to add other locations as we revisit old friends in the business and join up with other like-minded enthusiasts. Our plans for the immediate future include extending  our coverage to Mozambique, an exciting and relatively little known area of Africa which already has much to offer for investors specialising in emerging property markets and leisure seekers looking for new and unspoilt destinations.  Other areas we hope to add soon, include Central and Southern Brazil, and possibly France. Watch this space.
