I take pleasure in recommending your firm in all aspects of the acquisition of real estate in Goa. The thoroughness that you showed in the site visits and valuations together with the coordination with lawyers and local authorities was most impressive. Most importantly, you were extremely able to get us comfortable with title as well as the regulatory approvals process, which can be a cumbersome maze for a Non-Goan. The documentation that you delivered post closing was world class in its presentation and ease of review for a complicated set of documents.
Our experience in working with Alan Viegas has been, and is, outstanding. Alan is not only excellent professionally ... he is a patient, kind and effective personality. He has a safe pair of hands and can be relied upon fully. We enjoyed and continue to enjoy our relationship with Alan and have no hesitation in recommending his work and professionalism to anyone.

It has always been a pleasure dealing with Alan Viegas. We were introduced through Cushman & Wakefield and all of the recent villas I have designed in Goa were sold through the Property Management Group. In addition, I take feedback from him on how the market is working and more. It has been a pleasure to deal with this professional.
In the present positive scenario and expected investor friendly environment combined with lesser bureaucratic issues, Goa suddenly looks to be a ‘hot’ investment destination. A company like yours with experience, a professional approach and the right attitude has indeed got even greater role to play now.
We are so thrilled to have been associated with you for last 12 years and appreciate your giving us great investment opportunities as well as bringing the right buyers for our properties. The right timing to buy and sell the property has been a key to our success with investments in Goa and I thank you for always emphasizing the importance of this factor in our dealings with you.
I take this opportunity to compliment you that in all
the transactions that we did of buying or selling, we
never faced any legal issues just because you never
marketed any properties, which had title issues. You
have been quite selective of the people you do business with unlike others who would just sell anything to anyone. In our years of association, I have noticed that you don’t just ‘sell’ the property but properly ‘market’ it by providing total solution. It
is the understanding of difference between these two synonyms in ‘inverted commas’; that makes your company so different than others, in Goa and elsewhere.
I wish you all the very best in your endeavors and may you achieve even higher points of professionalism.
All our dealings with PMG from the start to end have been excellent, and Alan and his team have been honest and extremely efficient, informative and helpfull during the sale and post-sale.
We both have highly praised your services and recommended you to all our family and friends and will continue to do so in the future.

We couldn’t have found a more professional real estate agency anywhere in Goa. The handling of the Sale of property, the collating and collection of all the necessary documentation was absolutely fantastic and had it not been for Alan Viegas, we most probably would never have been able to sell our property. Your company also helped us avoiding making some major purchasing mistakes.
Should we ever want to buy a property in Goa again, we would only trust and deal with the PROPERTY MANAGEMENT GROUP.

I would strongly recommend the services of the Property Management Group for its professional competence. It provides its clients with excellent knowledge and service in the real estate sector in Goa.
The value of these services is considerably enhanced by the personal qualities of Mr Alan Viegas, as was evident when it became necessary to review and indeed dissolve a transaction into which I had entered. The matter was handled with maturity and consideration, without the intervention of legal experts or any other party. A dispute was avoided, as were expenses and anxieties that usually follow. Indeed the entire matter was skillfully and tactfully managed by Mr Viegas and his company. No praise could be high enough for the way it was amicably resolved to the entire satisfaction of all concerned, with a considerable sum of money at stake for one and all. Such services are indeed are and certainly invaluable.

We have always found your business commitment, ethics and values of the highest order and sincerely appreciate our professional relationship with the Property Management Group. Your timely guidance , suggestions and advice have helped us in taking financial decisions, and purchasing three properties through PMG, which otherwise would have been tough. This very nature of PMG conducting business in this mode gives you a superior edge in the market. We have always admired your team for so many years and its to your credit that customers feel confident in conducting high value financial transactions with PMG. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors and I am confident that based on the strong values you have built in PMG, there is no other way but to be the best company in the business in your field.

Ever since I met Alan and his staff at the Property Management Group I've been impressed by the professional no-nonsense approach that they bring to their work. Any time I visited a property and was taken up with the 'view' or location or any other 'wow' factor Alan was busy doing his own checks of more important aspects like plumbing, cracks, possible seepage problems during the monsoon and so on. We finally decided to buy a flat in Gera Astoria at Caranzalem, a property that was then only being planned. Yet Alan had the foresight to choose the correct corner flat and the correct floor, and now when I look at the completed flat and the view therefrom, I know we couldn't have made a better choice - it's probably one of the best units in that property. Don't look further than the Property Management Group when it comes to investing in real estate in Goa!
PMG made the ‘Dream Home’ a reality for us. However, finding the property was only 50% of the job done. In my opinion the real challenge was to navigate the entire negotiation process and ensure that both, the buyer and seller were happy with the concluded price and transaction. Alan Viegas did that with finesse, transparency and integrity.
The paperwork was crystal clear and superbly documented. PMG office assistants were available to help in all the nitty-gritties of the registration process. Alan Viegas is like a very scrupulous jeweller, who not only sources the finest real estate solitaires, but also inspires confidence and pride in his clients.

Ever since I met Alan and his staff at the Property Management Group I've been impressed by the professional no-nonsense approach that they bring to their work. While looking to buy a home in or around Panjim in Goa, I was introduced to Alan through a close friend and didn't need to look for a second property management expert! Any time I visited a property and was taken up with the view or location or any other 'wow' factor Alan was busy doing his own checks of more important aspects like plumbing, cracks, possible seepage problems during the monsoon and so on.

Working with Alan Viegas and his efficient, professional staff at The Property Management Group made my recent purchase of a villa in Goa a smooth and easy process. Alan's team was extremely knowledgeable about Goa's property market, helped steer me to reliable developers and kept me fully apprised of the requirements for each stage of the transaction. PMG was in close touch with me throughout the process and helped facilitate communication with the property developer to iron out any issues that arose during the construction period. Since I am based in the US and had no personal representative in Goa I was warned by many people that buying a property in Goa could become very treacherous-thanks to Alan and his team, though, it was a piece of cake! I received regular updates (with pictures) of progress on the construction of my villa, Property Management Group helped me to work out some changes that I wanted to make to the initial design and he and his team proved a fantastic great resource on all things Goan.
We were overwhelmed in getting such personalized service and had a comfortable experience whilst buying our Villa at The Highland Villas project at Porvorim. Our paper work was smooth and any instructions to the builder for any changes to our villa, payments, etc were most efficiently handled by the PMG team - who made it a point to see that things get done! Overall it was a great experience to deal with The PROPERTY MANAGEMENT GROUP and we vouch that it is a trustworthy and reliable organization.

Being an NRI and making the right investment in properties back in India is a tedious task. I had visited more than a dozen exhibitions on properties but no one seemed to get it right with regard to my requirements - they kept asking whether it was for investment or whether it was meant for me to stay and my answer every time was both!
I was fortunate enough to meet Mr.Alan Viegas at this very crucial juncture. During the meeting with Mr.Viegas, he clearly understood the fact that a carefully selected house is a potential investment, while being a home at the same time. Property Management Group has a very organised set up and they take the trouble to understand the needs of each client and work with the client EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. As an NRI, they helped me with the paper work and made everything problem free. Before we knew it, our deal for our new home was done without any hitches. I can very confidently say that anyone who deals with PMG will come out a winner in every aspect. I highly recommend PMG to every NRI looking for a home in Goa.

Your organisation provides a complete solution - from market research, to negotiation with the sellers, registration of the property and transfer formalities post acquisition. Your service has been seamless from beginning to end and it is a comfort and a pleasure to work with you. Through you, we have understood a tremendous amount about the property market in Goa from procedural formalities to personal psychology. The level of professionalism, hard work and attention to detail you and your team have demonstrated in these past few Months is truly outstanding. With such a well trained, capable and dynamic team of individuals - the sky is the limit. We are very satisfied with your services and look forward to having a sustained relationship going forward.
A prominent Lawyer in Goa gave me Alan Viegas's name and telephone number saying "Alan is one of the best and you can be sure the title will be clean" so I contacted Alan from Delhi and we exchanged a number of emails and agreed a date to visit some properties. I had also fixed meetings with developers and other agents for a full week of back to back visits to see what products were available in Goa.
Alan showed us several possibilities on the first day and this process helped him understand our tastes and what we like as well as helped us understand what we really wanted. He let us explore other offerings with other parties and never put any 'selling' preasure on us. Then on Thursday, Alan called and said he had a house (which he had covered in an earlier email) that he was sure we would like. Despite the fact that we had already made an offer on another property, we trusted Alan's judgement and saw the property at 3pm on Friday. It was an easy decision. We made an offer which Alan took to the owner and that evening and an agreement was reached. We had just 5 weeks to complete the legal process before leaving for France and Alan's team were under the gun to get all the documents that our exacting Lawyers wanted. Four weeks later we were back in Goa and, for practical reasons, there was a complex exchange of deeds and payment that had to be handled by an electronic transfer of funds (RTGS) which all had to be done before the registration offices closed at midday. Alan orchestrated this nail biting process with coolness and confidence though later he admitted this was the first time a completion had been handled this way. Since we were not in the country, Alan's firm handled the mutation of the property and transfer of the electricity and water into our names as well as kept an eye on the property in our absence. All this was part of his after sales service. So if I sum up the experience, three words come to mind. Professional, Knowledgeable and Charming..... and one has found a new Friend in the bargain.
