About Us

Spain & Portugal Property South Africa (SPPSA) was established in 2017 by Richard Vernon.

Richard, originally from the UK, has lived in South Africa for the last 40 years, working in the corporate IT Industry until 2016, after which SPPSA was established,

Over the years, he has spent very significant time in Spain and Portugal, has had many connections to and with Spain, and several of his family members have had properties in Spain, -- all thoroughly valuing their decisions to buy and in most cases live in Spain. Through spending this time in Spain and Portugal and traveling extensively around the Region, he has also built up an extensive knowledge of Spain, Portugal and their different regions. This has been complemented by a good understanding of Property and Residency processes, tax considerations, and market knowledge.

When first setting up Spain & Portugal Property South Africa, the initial focus was on Spain and all the main Spanish Coastal holiday and residential regions -- including Costa Blanca North and South, Costa Del Sol, Mallorca, Menorca, Valencia, and Barcelona, and some Country Areas (Inland Alicante/Murcia as well as Andalucia). In some areas, there is an additional and specific focus on an Investing (Buy to Let) perspective, as well as normal buying property for personal use.

Subsequently in 2018 the focus expanded to include Portugal, through SPPSA being appointed The Collaboration Partner for South Africa for Portugal's Leading Property Agency, Berkshire Hathaway Portugal Property.

Please Note: SPPSA covers ALL areas of Spain & Portugal, not just those areas mentioned above !
