Alexandra
Victoria Bonte

Alexandra fell in love with Portugal  the moment she first visited in spring 2011. Exploring Lisbon, she came across the multitude of beautiful empty buildings on charming streets and instantly realized the opportunity that lay before her. Using her MBA she began to study every aspect of real estate and build a strong network of industry experts and potential clients. 

In January 2014, having previously lived in seven different countries and speaking five languages fluently, Alexandra relocated to Portugal to establish Bonte Filipidis™ as a real estate development agency. In 2016, faced with undeniable market changes, but equipped with a solid understanding and faith in the potential of Portugal for both investors and expats, Alexandra successfully pivoted the company to incorporate residential real estate. 

Alexandra lives in Cascais with her young family where they spend as much time in nature as possible. She enjoys training her horses, outdoor sports, quantum meditation, yoga, languages, planning events and charity fundraising.
