Nel is Canadian Portuguese and lived in Canada from age of 2 to 29. In the summer of 2000 she visited the Algarve and simply refused to leave. The reason she has a familiar face is because she has worked in the property market in Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo for over 22 years. With an incredible thirst for knowledge she is now on her 3rd university degree, she is multi-lingual and has a gorgeous daughter and husband. In her "free" time, she loves to travel, enjoys photography and appreciates great food from around the world.
