Jessica Piessens

Realtor - Algarve Region


I am Belgian and moved to Portugal 25 years ago. I went to school in Albufeira and Vilamoura and grew up in the Algarve. I returned to Belgium to study at University but after a couple of years I realized I couldn’t imagine myself living in Belgium mainly because of the (dark, cloudy) weather… so I moved back to sunny Portugal. This time to Lisbon where I lived for a couple of years and where I studied Translation. When I graduated I got a job as a Dutch teacher at University. At the same time I started my own business – along with my boyfriend – together we own an aerial photography company specializing in aerial cinematography. We have been amongst the first in Portugal when people had never even heard about drones. After a couple of years teaching Dutch I tried my luck in sales and then got in touch with Michael Vincent… which has lead me to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Portugal Property
