IT IS an undeniable fact that the purchase of a home in the sun is one of the biggest and most important investments people can make.

For many, once you have got your property the worries don’t stop, the main concern being that without sufficient attention the property could deteriorate and more importantly, be at risk from crime.

As a result, people put their property in the charge of property management companies.

Doreen Lloyd is the owner and operator of Lloyds Property Services, a company which specialises in managing a range of quality properties, situated in Lagos and western Algarve.

What differentiates Lloyds Property Services from its competitors is that it is a dedicated management service, unlike other companies whose time is taken with selling or renting.

Doreen encourages and advises her clients to advertise their property on an easy online system. This has proved successful with owners as they can easily deal with clients and safely obtain year round bookings for their property with little bother.

Doreen operates to certain key criteria: personal contact, advice and support for owners, a quality service for them and their guests with the support of a team of like-minded dedicated staff.

Management services are an important part of having a property in the Algarve and good standards and services are essential.

“The relationship I have with my owners is more than that of being clients, many have become close friends and that has developed a bond of trust between us. In fact, my social calendar is as full as my work calendar!” says Doreen.

“I get a real buzz helping them with our new Home Planner Service, kitting out their homes with anything from a bathmat to a bedroom suite.”

What makes the business’ situation even more interesting is the current state of the property market in Lagos, Vila do Bispo and Aljezur. As it is expanding at such a pace, there is constant interest and innovation within the quality of property, allowing customers to really take interest and reap the benefits of their holiday home. “The growth and expansion particularly on the west coast makes for an exciting future and I want to be a part of it,” she furthers.

Lloyds Property Services is thriving and guarantees offering peace of mind and providing personal, individual attention to your holiday home whenever it is needed.
