MARTA de SOUSA is a property developer & property expert.
For the past 6 years she has run her own international property development company LUX Reality, which specialises in intelligent design, with a focus in refurbishing and redeveloping properties across London.
In all her projects Marta combines traditional skills with cutting edge techniques, to create environmentally conscious homes, equipped with the latest technology.
Marta regularly comments on property related news for both the trade and national press including Sky News, ITV News, The Sunday Telegraph, The Metro, The Independent, The Evening Standard, London Live and BBC London Radio 94.9FM.
From an early age Marta has known her way around a building site, having grown up surrounded by the family property business. Extensive first-hand experience, combined with a clear vision led Marta to found her own company, LUX Reality.
Never afraid to speak her mind, Marta relishes the challenge of managing a team of 20 builders, along with an architect and an engineer. It may be a male dominated industry, but Marta refuses to compromise on her femininity, despite the hard hat.
Her sound knowledge of the property market stems from years of experience and from having worked as an expert for both Bloomberg News as a reporter, and for CNBC the business news channel.
Unlike an estate agent, Marta puts her money where her mouth is, studying the market extensively, especially in the current climate. Not only does she know what needs to be done to sell a property, but also how to execute it.
Marta De Sousa's properties have won various international awards and regularly feature in magazines, newspapers and online. She has also featured alongside her properties on various property programs, including BBC One's Homes Under the Hammer and BBC Three's House Hunting.
