Our team covers every local market in Spain and operates across all asset types (hotel, residential, land, industrial, nursing homes, commercial, offices,…). In 2015, we performed over 50 portfolio valuations involving assets worth more than €10 billion (Atalaya, Cadi, Goya, Eurostar, Commander, Tourmalet, Wind, Empire, Pampa, Ponte, Jetty, Mirage, Chloe, Liceo, Mamut, Kite, Stream, Aneto, Babieca, Pegasus, Macarena, Silk, Veleta,…)

– Aura REE Portugal has hired Jose Covas, MRICS (Head of Portugal & Head of Valuations) to lead our new team and he will be supported by local teams located across the country, including in the islands. Jose has extensive knowledge of the Portuguese market and wide-ranging experience from his time with WORX/Knight Frank (Portugal Head of Valuation & Advisory), DTZ (Iberia Head of Valuations), Colliers International (Portugal Head of Valuation). Moreover, Jose currently serves as the Portuguese Chairman of the RICS Valuation Group. Our IT platform already contains almost 1 million comparable assets in Portugal.
