Herman van Katwijk is the founder of Calvos Casas, has lived in Portugal permanently since 2000, and since 2004 has been working as a real estate agent and advisor on all kinds of emigration issues.

Luis Barbosa is the founder of Trata.

In 2021 Calvos Casas and Trata have joined forces. Step by step, professional photographs are being made, drone movies are being made and also a video tour will be more and more part of the information we provide.

Together with the other members of our team, we can speak to clients in five languages and the site is advertised on more than 100 different (international) property portals. 

Every client can therefore call on a mediator who speaks their own language and is familiar with the habits and customs in Portugal and can therefore offer the best possible service.
