Beaux Villages' Team
You’ll hear us talk about being a ‘people business’. ‘Family’ get a regular mention.
Words are easy and talk is cheap. We really do work as a team.
The whole team at BVI undergoes regular training above and beyond the minimum standards now prescribed by French law. Compulsory elements include applicable law and ethics, and we have added extra modules that we feel are of particular benefit to our clients.
Have a look at our testimonials.
I’m the managing director and founder of Beaux Villages Immobilier. Growing up my time was spent across several European countries including France, Holland and Spain. As a multi-lingual business and language graduate, I’ve chosen to raise my son and daughter (and several donkeys) here in France. I am the holder of the legally required Carte Professionelle for our business.
I am CEO of BVI and my background is in property, retail sales, and latterly HR and training. I’ve lived in France since 2003. This is a people business first and foremost. Property is the product, however relationships, trust and mutual respect are the key elements to matching buyer and seller. We’ll treat you the way we want to be treated. My personal passions include architecture, local history and photography.
My role is as Group Marketing Director for BVI and its sister companies in Spain and the UK. Following a career editing property magazines for the BBC, I arrived in France for a holiday in the early 2000’s and bought a house almost on a whim. I am an ex-journalist with a passion for property. Fancy a chat about architecture, furnishings, colour, white goods? I'm your girl. I LOVE moving house and would happily pack up and move on every couple of years. On the work front, I still flex my writing skills in national and international publications creating features on French property and the buying process.
I am Group Finance Director for BVI and its sister companies in Spain and the UK. My background includes marketing consultant for blue-chip companies in the UK, being a business owner in France, and being a published author on the heady science of business process improvement. The team here like to joke that I arrived in France on holiday and bought a house on a spreadsheet.
We brought our company, Guyenne Immobilier, into Beaux Villages early in 2018. I have extensive local knowledge of this justifiably popular and stunningly pretty bastide town.
We moved lock-stock to France many years ago with children, parents and siblings and ran a sizable gite complex. That gave me a great insight into what people are looking for when relocating in France and, with my marketing and sales background, a new career in property seemed the perfect next move. I am now Senior Area Sales Coordinator for Beaux Villages.
I am part of the English enquiries team and likely to be the first voice that many people hear when they start their search for their dream French home.
I came to France and did my schooling here, and am now another of the bilingual, bi-cultural enquiries team members. You might find yourself in contact with me if you use Live Chat.
I ‘retired’ from a life on stage and screen to slow down in France and pursue a second passion showing and breeding dogs. Since joining BVI I’ve never worked so hard in my LIFE! But I absolutely LOVE supporting and mentoring the sales team as they find the perfect home for a new arrival or, equally help a seller to move on with their life.
As head of HR and training for Beaux Villages I make full use of my teaching background (French was my subject). It’s my job to ensure that the sales team uphold the BVI standards of quality customer service. I moved to France several years ago with my husband, Kevin, who is also on the sales team (and loves having a personal sales trainer at home!).
I joined BVI from a smaller local competitor and have settled into the family dynamic. It is likely to be me or one of my team calling to arrange a viewing for you, or responding to you on LiveChat. I’ll make sure your request to list a property for sale is handled quickly and efficiently…
I came to France when my 2 children were young and have been here for over 15 years. I followed the path that many want to take: buying an old project to renovate. I now help others achieve the dream.
Based on the borders of Charente and Dordogne in the Verteillac office, I am Customer Services Manager for BVI. I've lived in France from a very early age when my parents moved here from the UK. I was educated here and, like many of our team, married into the local community.
As Training Manager for the north of our area I make sure that sales team has the necessary training to deal with buyers and sellers. The laws around estate agency in France are stringent and everyone has to complete a set number of training hours every year to stay registered as a sales agent. It keeps me on my toes!
I've worked in Estate Agency in France for 17 years and am Head of Sales Management with Beaux Villages. Home is an 1848 granite and limestone property and we're pretty self-sufficient in fruit, veg and eggs, thanks to our potager and chickens!
I am part of the French call team dealing with enquiries via email, phone and live-chat.
