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!

We are so grateful to Heather Binder for all of her amazing assistance, knowledge, and kindness throughout our moving to Portugal adventure! Her assistance and thoroughness helped us speed through our Visa applications and receive our approvals in about 30 days! Heather has been a lifesaver! Her years of experience as a realtor in Phoenix, AZ as well as her time spent in Portugal has equipped her for providing great advice. If anyone is interested in making the move to Portugal and is looking for a valuable resource to simplify the process I would certainly recommend Heather! You will not regret it!

We're currently using Boots on the Ground Portugal services for our D7 Visa application, and so far what we've seen has been nothing short of fantastic--Heather Binder is super organized, offers superior tracking of each step, and full support during an extremely stressful process. We'd recommend "Boots on the Ground Portugal" for expats looking for guidance on this complex effort. Thank you for making our lives less complicated! Looking forward to working with you during our journey abroad 😎💚❤️💛🌠
