Heather is the first person I would turn to if I was moving to Portugal. She shared her personal journey to Portugal and I followed it closely. She did things intelligently and has only gained more knowledge through her experience. She will be a wealth of information and help to her clients. Heather is one of the most honest and hardest working people I know. I would trust her completely and know that she will advocate for clients (and friends and animals) tirelessly. I highly recommend her!
