The place to invest and live

With its initial origins in real estate development, Bonte Filipidis™ was created in 2014 in Portugal, thanks to the remarkable investment opportunities presented by a country with a thriving economy and a long list of incredible advantages for living and working. In 2016, and in direct response to market demands, it became a residential real estate boutique, catering directly to clients who not only wanted to invest or relocate to Portugal, but who wanted to do so stress-free and with zero problems.
