Tony Coninckx, Partner
Tony is an entrepreneur and charismatic businessman with proven success in both retail and service industries globally. Originally from Belgium, he graduated from the University of Gent with flying colours, majoring in Germanic Languages. Tony has fluent language skills in Dutch, English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish and these have enabled him to build strong alliances throughout Northern, Central and Southern Europe. He is equally comfortable working with businesses and consumers alike.
After building a profitable retail, import and export organisation operating between the Benelux and South East Asia from scratch, Tony relocated from Belgium to Portugal in 2002 to focus on Real Estate sales and rentals throughout the Eastern Algarve. Today, Tony has a strong network of Belgian, Dutch and British Expatriates who utilise his understanding and knowledge of Portuguese property law and local customs. Additional services include experienced advice on property tax matters, international removals and importation of customers’ private vehicles. His business successes in the Eastern Algarve are the result of continuous networking and through recommendations from satisfied clients, who in turn have become both his trusted friends and sponsors.
Tony, known as Antonio to his Portuguese customers, brings a completely new perspective and energy to Portfolio 17. This introduction to both Real Estate and to his colleagues seeking properties in Portugal, dovetails with the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. The majority of Tony’s Portfolio 17 clients will be mature buyers seeking a retirement or second home in the sun. Additionally new customers will be shrewd business investors requiring a regular income from buying quality properties and offering their apartments and villas to the rental markets. Tony will be pleased to supply quotations and practical support for both experienced and first time investors.
