Helen is an absolute star!

Sellers

By Tina Hall, 19 July 2021

Helen was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process of selling our French home. She went out of her way to make sure everything went according to plan and her attention to detail was outstanding. I really don't know what we would have done without her professionalism and her care. She is an absolute star so, thank you Helen and thank you Beaux Villages.

Extremely happy with the service

Sellers

By Georgia Taylor, 16 July 2021

...I was extremely happy with the service on both sales. As an ex estate agent myself, it would have been easy for them to leave me to do some of the 'legwork' but they didn't, and they made what was potentially an emotionally difficult process as easy and as stress free as possible. A big thanks to Helen, Shannon and all the team.

A big thank you to Carol!

Good evening Carol,
 
Both Gem and I would sincerely like to thank you for not just your professional help whilst looking at so many properties
for us but also being so helpful in keeping us up to date with new properties and looking after us whilst in France.

Gem and I would love to take you and your partner out for dinner when we are next out as a thank you, A BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ….

We have applied for our long stay VISA and I hope we can start our new life in France from October.

THANK YOU Carol, you are such an asset to BVI!!

Kindest regards,
Darren & Gem

Thank you David Perry

I would like to thank you for the professionalism that you showed when we first contacted BVI.   
 
You were by far the best agent representative that visited our property.
 
Best wishes

The professionalism shown was “top drawer”

Sellers

By Jennifer and Richard Johnson, 10 May 2021

Dear All

A note from both Richard and I to thank the Team at Beaux Villages and Etude Benedetti for their help in getting our house sold through some tough times.

The first sale fell though after some five weeks, then another sale process started in December but we had the challenge of Dick having an accident at Papillon Bleu on December 26 which involved a five plus week stay in hospital and a rehabilitation centre. With the help of Andre Lamy, our next door neighbour, and Severine Jaulent we were able to get the Compromis signed!

The professionalism shown by all was “top drawer” and customer service was extraordinary.   

Julie stepped in because Gearoid couldn’t return to the UK in time and Julie also helped us with moving the furniture out of the house.  I had managed to sell 50% but the last 50% was proving almost impossible to get rid of.  We were grateful for Gearoid’s suggestion of Julie.

The advice and support along the way was amazing. I cannot speak more highly of it.

We would be more than happy to recommend Beaux Villages and if a personal reference is needed and someone would like to speak to us about our experience, we would be more than happy to oblige.   I have already done a Facebook reference for Etude Benedetti.

Thank you so much for all the hard work! It was so appreciated and our experience in selling the house was so much better than when we purchased it.

Best regards
Jennifer and Richard Johnson

Extremely helpful!

By David and Violetta, 22 February 2021

We would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to Francois-Regis Flourac for the help and support he gave us in finding a house in Monflanquin.

We found Francois to be extremely helpful, friendly, open, honest and knowledgeable.

In the short time we were dealing with Francois, he engended great trust in us.

Francoise went out of his way to find out exactly what it was that we wanted and to help us in our search to find it.

What Francois did for us in the last few weeks was far above anything that we have previously experienced from other agents.

We would like to wish him all the best for the future.

Kind regards, David and Violetta

Thank you for your help selling our property!

By Haydn and Anne Burnham, 11 January 2021

I just wanted to record our thanks for your continued help over the last year in selling our property. Daniel has been a really positive constance in keeping the buyer alive as he has gone further than most to keep the contact going!! Edite has also played her part in keeping in touch. There has never been a problem between us, so please pass on our thanks to a job well done.

Anne and Marion: stars in Verteillac!

Buyers

By Gail Sterry, 18 December 2020

I met Anne Kemp-Reynolds in summer 2017 on our visit to France to look to look at properties.

After a chat with Anne about what I was looking for, she showed us real possibilities and one in particular that might have become our new home, had we been proceedable at the time.

After we returned to the UK, Anne kept in touch by email and when I had sold my house and we moved over in January 2019 with everything including the cat, Anne set up viewings. Just two days after we arrived we spent a day viewing properties and we ended up buying the fourth house we saw on the first day of viewings.

Anne was friendly and easy to build a rapport with. She was very efficient and was on hand to give advice and help us through the process. She is a star and beacon in the Beaux Villages team.

I would also pick out Marion in the office at Verteillac as being another star. Marion has a command of the English language second to none. We were able to have an in-house Compris de Vente with Marion translating the documentation so that we were able to follow the process. Marion is always helpful, polite and knowledgeable.

New adventure

Buyers

By Valerie Whyle, 07 December 2020

I would like to say a big thank you to Ray Metcalfe for all his time, effort and honest advice when it came to looking, and finding the perfect property for me.
As a first time purchaser in France; and speaking very little French, his knowledge and professional approach gave me the confidence that I was in safe hands throughout the whole French purchasing process.
I would certainly recommend Beaux Villages to anyone searching for their dream home, or holiday home in France.

Very helpful team

Thank you the team at Beaux Villages

Buyers

By Barbara and Peter Rhodes, 20 October 2020

We thought buying in France would be a difficult process and we don't speak a word of french but thanks to the team at BV the process was a lot less difficult than we thought. We had a smooth purchase and we can't thank them enough. They continued to help us even after the purchase. We appreciate everything they did for us.

Thank you

Babs and Pete

Thank you Pauline Johnson

Sellers

By Kate Lockett, 15 October 2020

We chose Beaux Villages when putting our house on the market and were very pleased that we did so.

Pauline came to see the house and I was immediately reassured by her friendliness and professionalism.

All though the viewings, offer and subsequent selling of the house Pauline responded quickly to questions, and I always found her to be caring, unflappable and efficient.

I would certainly recommend the Beaux Villages team to someone looking to sell.

Thanks and flowers for Tracy Page!

Thank you so much for all your help getting our house purchase over the line, we couldn't have done it without all your support.

Our new life adventure!

Buyers

By Gill and Stephen Lambert, 17 September 2020

Dear Tracey

We have finally moved into our new home and can now enjoy our ‘new life adventures’ en France.

Stephen and I would like to put on record our very grateful and heartfelt thanks to you and your wonderful team at BVI. Without your constant support, guidance, help, patience and encouragement we know we wouldn’t be where we are today.

Our search for our dream home in France started five years ago but it took us until 2019 to find the perfect fit for us. The property we found ticked each and every box for us - the blue wisteria around the doors and windows, the river frontage, the pool, the AGA cooker ... and ´the project’ for our retirement together.

Unfortunately our purchase was thwarted with set backs from the start - a tenant farmer and bail that needed to be removed, and some interesting and challenging personalities in the mix.

Despite the challenges, the service we received from BVI was ´Top class’ and ´First rate’! The hard work and sheer determination of David Crews and Marion Guyot has to be applauded and we would be grateful if you could bring our personal thanks and gratitude to the attention of the Chairman and the Directors of the Board at BVI. David and Marion worked tirelessly on our behalf to get our purchase over the line. They were courteous and professional, helpful and knowledgeable, and a beacon of light throughout the process.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank you for your personal intervention between Christmas and the New Year when things took a turn for the worst and the vendors pulled out of the sale. Through your efforts and negotiation we got the purchase back on track.

If things weren’t challenging enough at the start of the year, COVID-19 happened and the hiatus caused further challenges and set backs. During our darkest days of ‘shielding’ the BVI beacons of light shone through, keeping our dream alive and our sanity in check.

It has been a long and winding road, but thanks to everything you, David and Marion have done for us, we have reached our rainbow's end.

Thank you all for making our dream come true.

Our kindest regards

Gill and Stephen

Above and beyond from start to sale

Testimonial for Heather Comber:

Jane and I would like to thank you for all the "above and beyond" help you have given us in the sale of our French property.

I am certain without your support the sale would not have proceeded.

From the moment you took the property on, we were impressed - nothing was too much trouble and this continued from showing the property to your clients whilst we were away to the final sale negotiations. We really cannot recommend your service more highly. Thank you so much.

Invaluable

Testimonial for Lucy Hollis:

I am SO glad we have an English speaking expert Property Consultant on our team - this is not a process I would have enjoyed handling on my own !

Your advice, information and help in guiding us through these procedures is invaluable - and very much appreciated. The patient and comprehensive explanations inspire confidence and make the process less of a minefield.

Impressive and highly professional

Sellers

By Stella and Ken, 03 June 2020

Testimonial for Catherine Vanackere: This is to personally thank you so much for all the help you have given us to complete the sale of our house.

You have represented Beaux Villages in such a highly professional way, made all the more impressive when over the last 5 months the Covid-19 virus has hit everyone and caused all the issues which are always faced to be handled in a unique way.

We have only praise for the way the Beaux Villages team has handled all of the challenging buying and selling process.

We can recommend Beaux Villages and its team as committed professionals who make things happen.

Well done and thank you.

A huge 'Thank You!'

Buyers

By Chris & Justine, 16 March 2020

Testimonial for James Cameron:

An overdue note to say a huge thank you for all that you did in helping with the house purchase. You were quick to respond whenever we needed anything and a huge help in getting everything over the line. Thanks also for bringing the fizz, it was a lovely gesture and I hope it won't be the last time that we raise a glass together at Maison des Freres! We had a great few days and can't wait to get back out at the end of the month, hope to see you then. Cheers!

With many thanks

Testimonial for Judith Whitlow

Judith has worked hard and meticulously over the years to find a buyer for our property.

She works tirelessly and calmly to bring a satisfactory conclusion to each deal for both parties.

I have to recommend her thoroughness, caring attitude and good management which she has shown in finalising this particular sale. I would also like to specially mention Fabienne, Lisa and Jane in the Monsegur and Eymet teams.

Many thanks to all of you - I will certainly recommend your agencies.

Approachable, friendly and helpful

Buyers

By Nichol & Sue Kerr, 08 January 2020

Testimonial for Heather Comber:

We thought it would be good to drop you a line expressing our appreciation for the support that Heather Comber has given us in buying our house In Cherveix-Cubas.

From the start she has been very approachable, friendly and helpful - she is very easy to get on with and responded very quickly to any queries we had and always followed up. She has been very helpful in guiding us through the process and finding support when we needed it (e.g. translator, emergency plumber) and acting as the go-between with the vendors.

All of this would encourage us to recommend Beaux Villages and Heather.

Best regards
