Abacoz Properties is a well-established estate agency that has been running for seven years in Lagos. In January of last year, Ludwig Van Heddegem and his financial business partner bought Abacoz Properties. Ludwig revealed that they have strong intentions of expanding Abacoz to cover the whole of the Algarve with their hope for the future being that their next office is based in Olhão or the Tavira area.

Ludwig has previously worked in the hotel business for 10 years as general manager for an American group. Ludwig is of Belgium nationality and speaks five languages and has lived in the Algarve for 22 years ,so brings extensive knowledge and expertise to Abacoz ,which has a strong connection with international clientele.

The official opening of their Loulé office was on Saturday, 22 January of this year which is located on Praça D. Afonso III nº31. Ludwig explained that “the Loulé office was previously owned by the established van Druenen Properties since 1993 and most interestingly, was actually the office of the first real estate agency in Loulé which originally opened in 1988.” The office is in a prime location and Ludwig told me that they “chose Loulé due to it being strategically in the centre of the Algarve and because it is a very interesting area with really nice properties for sale.” He also added that “what we are seeing is that there is a strong demand from French home buyers who are enticed to moving to Portugal due to the way it has managed the pandemic in comparison to other European countries, deeming it an example to follow.”

In terms of the set up at the Loulé office, Ludwig told me that they have a secretary and two sales people at the moment which they hope to expand on. Ludwig also added that at “the Loulé office, both sales persons have more than 20 years of experience in real estate in the Loulé extended area and that we attend to clients in their own language and in the office, we have an Italian speaker so we provide a total of six languages.”

Ludwig also affirmed the promising future the agency holds “Our devoted international team will continue our current working method and our client culture throughout the Algarve, Loulé is just the first step.
