Howdy folks,

I apologize for not participating on the forum for the last few months. It's been pretty hectic. But now we can relax. We sold our house in Texas, and pretty much everything else we owned. We ended up staying in a nearby airbnb for three weeks and then another near the Houston airport. 

On April 9th we arrived in Lisbon! We made it! We leased a condo in the Larajeiras area and we love it here. We're still getting settled in and buying lots of stuff for the house. Everything has worked out better than expected. We decided to live in Lisbon for the first year. We're more country folks but this is a beautiful friendly city, and everything is so convenient. Our condo is quiet and spacious. 

A BIG thanks to the members of this forum. We gained a lot of useful information that helped us get here. Also big thanks to everyone at Ei! They've been a huge help. I'm glad we hired them. They are still helping us. I highly recommend them. 

If anyone has questions about Lisbon or the process to get here, I'd be happy to answer any questions if I can. 

Also, if there's anyone in this area that would like to meet up. That would be great. 

All the best!

Randy

Congratulations Randy!

We were in Lisbon for a week, what an amazing city!

We love it here too. Lucky to be here.

@jeanne For a fee Ei! offers a home finder service. They go out and look at the condos and then review the contract and make any needed changes.
