the Pride and the passion – Platinum Valet, Quinta do Lago
By Alison Hojbjerg • Mar 3rd, 2006 • Category: Companies, Golf
Ever wondered what makes the cars sparkle so brightly in Quinta do Lago? It's rarely due to hours spent by their proud owners, who usually have far more enjoyable things to do with their time. The answer is Paulo
Luxury Car Service
Paulo is the man behind Platinum Valet. His business is working magic on your car while you enjoy life to the full.
However, it is almost difficult not to envy Paulo; after all, not only does he get to work on the most beautiful automobiles ever created, but he keeps some very good company too. His little black book of clients includes some of the world's top VIPs. Of course, being the true professional that he is, Paulo would never divulge any details.
What he can never stop talking about though, is his passion for the cars and his job. "I absolutely love it!" says Paulo, who started his business nearly two years ago. "The clients are great, the cars are incredible, and the business is going well - so my wife is happy too. What more can I want?"
Critical to Paulo's popularity with Quinta do Lago's proud car owners is not just the sheer amount of care that goes into his work protecting his clients' investments, it's in large part due to the excellent relationships he builds with his clients - many of them trust him with his own keys to their cars.
"What's so special about Paulo is just how seriously he takes his work," says Quinta Properties' Alison Hojbjerg. "He has an incredible service ethic which shines through in everything he does for clients. He's a real asset to the local community."
Drive around Quinta do Lago and it's likely you'll soon spot one of Paulo's vans kitted out with all the latest professional equipment and products. They're also fully powered with electricity, clean water, and all the gadgets imaginable.
Quinta do Lago's local treasures
Paulo himself has become one of Quinta do Lago's local treasures - even the police stop to say "hello as he weaves his spell on yet another luxury car.
So what does the future hold for Platinum Valet? "More teams," Paulo hopes, "extending our services, perhaps even bridging over to southern Spain." But don't fear. Paulo won't be going anywhere yet.
"My teams can expand," he says, "but I shall always stay with the best - in Quinta do Lago!"
