ABOUT US AND OUR SERVICE
France – the passion!
Having been in the wine business as well as selling French property for over 20 years I have travelled extensively and gained a good knowledge and love of France including a detailed knowledge of French estate agencies
Estate agencies in France are very strictly controlled and we only represent well established government licensed agents
Our web site shows a selection of properties from most of the partner agents we represent, but by no means reflects the large number of properties available
. Please ask if you require further information on, or more pictures of, any properties. If you do not see what you are looking for, we will try to find it for you, even if it is not in one of the regions currently represented. Let us know what you would like, where, and your budget.
The prices shown are those you would find in France and include agency fees. There are no additional fees
as a result of our introductions or advice as the French agents share their fees with us. (See Buying Guide for Notaires fees and other important information).
When arranging to view properties remember that agents set aside and spend time with you and an appointment is essential. Allow plenty of time and let them know if you have to cancel or will be late, as they may have turned down other appointments. Do not underestimate distances and remember the French "lunch hour" - it's usually from 12.00 - 14.00 hrs, and is sacred!
Descriptions do not normally give precise locations and refer to a town or village which is likely to be the general area in which a property is situated. Depending on the terms of their agency agreement (mandat) with the owner and the strict regulations governing French estate agencies, our French partners may or may not be willing to divulge an exact location.
- this is a specialist market in which very few of our agents are involved. If you are interested, we will refer you to a specialist leaseback agent.
YOUR PROPERTY FOR SALE
- we do not market and sell properties without the co-operation of a partner French agent. Our information for vendors is available on request.
INFORMATION ON BUYING IN FRANCE
- see the page entitled Buying Guide. It contains advice and important general information on subjects such as conveyancing, as well as an extensive glossary of terms.
Under REGIONS & DÉPARTEMENTS
, you will find regional notes reflecting impressions which I have put together with my wife following our many visits to France.
