The international real estate franchise system Porta Mondial AG successfully established the first real estate brand in the Canary Islands – “Porta Tenerife”. Now local partners are being sought for “Porta Canaria”.
Speaking to realtors in Florida, they all agree: there is no way around the Internet. In Germany, many realtors still rely on sole agencies, and place their properties on large real estate portals, instead of investing in their own websites.
Elizabeth Kelly-Semrau, the wife of Porta Mondial founder Joachim Semrau, shows a group photo of students laughing happily for the camera. It is hard to believe that just five years ago one of them – Elmer Machuca Chacón – was still cleaning car windscreens on the street to boost his family’s income.
We are taking part in the following fairs and events in 2012. We look forward to speaking with you. Talk to us on site or make an appointment in advance with us.
Originally developed for the German market, the Porta Mondial estate agency concept was adapted as a global concept because of its huge success and the high level of acceptance amongst our partners.
The biggest changes in 2012 take place on the island itself: During the year Porta Mallorquina plans to open four more property stores in Alcudia, Palma, Andratx and Santa Ponsa.
Porta Tenerife, our master licensee for Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro, opened its first regional sales office in August in the north of Tenerife. The new property shop is located in the centre of Puerto de la Cruz, on Calle Luis de la Cruz, 10.
