Testimonials

FEEDBACK SO FAR After only 3 months “I would like to say we originally advertised with an agent, after 6 months with no viewings listed with PPS and one of your direct competitors. PPS is the only one where we have had requests for information and viewings. We have had 4 viewings and currently have one couple who are interested. PPS obviously have the right mix of websites because it works.”

THANK YOU PPS. I put my French house on your website fully expecting it would take at least two years to sell. Now less than a year later I have sold to French people – through your wonderful site and am starting my new life in Portugal. I bought the full package which included a ‘for sale’ sign which I put on the front of my building. No success with other advertising websites.
