»Over-development and inappropriate
building projects have been kept at bay
in Tavira by fastidious local planning
regulations enforced by the municipal
council. Karsten Steenken has one of the
most enviable office locations in the
Algarve. His VerdeLand estate agency is
in a quiet corner of Tavira´s central square
next to the Roman Bridge, with a little
veranda at the back, right on the river's
edge, where clients can peruse information
about properties for sale.
›Most of my clients are British or Irish
looking for a second home rather than one
to life in permanently‹, says Karsten. ›They want to be close to the town´s activities
and facilities and feel part of the community.
The sort of people who buy in Tavira
are intelligent and down-to-earth. They
know the value of money.‹... «

Welcome to the East Algarve, Tavira and VerdeLand!

VerdeLand Sociedade Mediação Imobiliária Lda. is a fully licensed Portuguese estate agency, formed in 2002 by its present owner, Karsten H. Steenken, who has been working in the property business in Portugal and Germany since 1980. The companies name – VerdeLand – reflects what we feel about the Eastern Algarve; one of the best protected coastlines in the south of Europe!

VerdeLand has a comprehensive portfolio of carefully pre-selected houses, villas, new constructions, plots of land, apartments, cottages, investment properties, off plan- and commercial properties. Normally the sellers pay our commissions, but we are also happy to help our customers to purchase the property that they are looking for on a fee basis.

Most of our customers are buying second homes. Some of those properties are also available for rental. To provide also quality property rental services for our valued customers we formed our new sister company, VerdeHomes Lda.
