CasaSapo was born in 2000 as the result of a partnership between Janela Digital, Portugal Telecom (PT) and the Sapo Portal, becoming the leading Real Estate channel of Portugal’s biggest search engine.
The idea of creating a real estate portal resulted from the increasing number of properties that were being handled by the Real Estate software, Inmofocus, which is still the only real estate management software that exports properties, automatically to CasaSapo.
