About Us

Nora Green Consulting was founded over 30 years ago by Herman van Beuningen (The Netherlands) and by Reto Jorg (Switzerland).

The company started with the trade in dairy cattle and agricultural products and machinery. Not long after it also started a real estate branch focusing to help foreign investors with the acquisition of rural properties in Portugal, namely dairy, cork, beef, arable, olive and wine farms. Nora Green supported most of its clients with setting up de investments but also performed several turnkey projects.

Currently Nora Green Consulting has developed into a very diversified (rural) real estate broker and consultant providing solutions in the field of real estate and agriculture in the Alentejo province. Our office is based at the Herdade Outeiro de Esquila Estate very close to the UNESCO World Heritage City of Evora, the capital of the Alentejo and situated one-hour south east of Lisbon.
