Completely exceeded our expectations

Sellers

By Jayne and Graham Foxley, 14 September 2021

We recently instructed Beaux Villages to sell our house and would highly recommend the service. The sale was managed quickly and efficiently; nothing was too much trouble and we were kept fully informed at every stage. Our property consultant, Daniela, was so helpful and  completely exceeded our expectations,  allowing  us  to deal with the  sale remotely due to restrictions on travel. Thank you to everyone involved

Stephanie was a true professional!

Buyers

By Janine Wellings, 09 September 2021

After researching many properties in France and contacting agents, Stephanie was the only one to pick up the phone and talk to us about our requirements, our aspirations and what we wanted to get out of our relocation to France. It was so refreshing to talk to someone in person who had actually undertaken the journey we were about to embark on. Stephanie listened to our brief and pulled together some properties that were ideally suited to us. Stephanie kept in touch and constantly reviewed what we were searching for. A true professional in every way, friendly and approachable and a real joy to have her working on our side during our search. Would highly recommend Stephanie’s service and that of Beaux Villages.

Heather has an excellent work ethic and energy!

Buyers

By Michael Colley, 30 August 2021

I first met Heather Comber in July 2020. I had made an offer on a house in La Coquille on the Beaux Villages website, but this was subject to seeing it. It was arranged that Heather would meet me at the train station in La Coquille at 08.50 Tuesday morning. She was there right on time. Then took me to see the property and give any advice required. I immediately decided on the purchase as it was just what we wanted

Since that first meeting she has helped and guided me through the purchase of the property, and competitive negotiating with the owner to buy furniture and equipment that was in the house.


Since those first few days she has been at the end of the phone or email to assist in any problems we came across. Kim her husband, has also gone out of his way to help me when I was struggling with aspects and I couldn’t manage.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Heather to anyone. We have total respect for her work ethic and energy.

Kind Regards
Michael Colley

We were not disappointed!

Sellers

By Stacey Grayshon, 18 August 2021

We decided to choose Beaux Villages to market our property after receiving many recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed.

Within one day of visiting the property was on the market. Photos and the advert wording were very professional. Our agent Jemma was very helpful throughout the entire process. She dealt with emails and general queries very quickly and was responsive at any time of the day/night. Jemma made herself available for appointments at the property throughout the sale process.

Beaux Villages had an agent present at both notaire meetings and were helpful throughout.

Thank you for helping us secure our new home

Buyers

By Steve & Lorraine Bailess, 18 August 2021

Vanessa allowed us to take our time when looking at initial properties in France and found answers to any queries we had whilst our purchase was going through. It is fair to say that Vanessa went above and beyond in her efforts to help us secure and set up our new home which we remain forever grateful for.  

Thank you Laura Croxford

Sellers

By Catherine Pring, 09 August 2021

Rural France can be a tricky place to sell a property, especially when you’re living in another country. Laura was an amazing, hands on mover and shaker. Going well beyond her professional duty to help us with our property maintenance and sale. I’m very grateful.

Absolute professionalism and an amazing agent!

Buyers

By Samantha Moore, 05 August 2021

My husband & I are in the process of buying a property in France which as a result of COVID has made the process very difficult. If it wasn’t for the professionalism of our amazing agent Laura Croxford we may well have thrown the towel in months ago. Laura has been fantastically helpful going way beyond the call of duty to make the process as easy as possible.

I had to go over before we could exchange on the property and had to self isolate for 7 days. Laura shopped for me and kept me in wine and food for the duration of my isolation. I borrowed her personal phone charger during my stay and packed it by mistake. She couldn’t have been nicer about it. Finally and most importantly she read through the Compromis page by page translating it into English for both me and the sellers so we could fully understand what we were signing.

I have already recommended Laura to friends who are about to put their house on the market. I wouldn’t make a recommendation without having absolute confidence that Laura will do her very best.

Thank you Anne Kemp-Reynolds

..buying this place from you has been a really good thing. Thank you for that
 

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!

Buyers

By Darren & Gem Harding, 02 July 2021

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.

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!

Buyers

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

Highly recommended!

An impressive, helpful, professional service. I was very pleased to have chosen Beaux Villages as the exclusive agency to sell my house.

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.

Karen went over and above in every area

Buyers

By Ian Olliver, 04 January 2021

This was the 5th property that we have bought and the first in France. The whole process from the very first contact we had with our estate agent Karen Cankalis to the signing of the final contract, despite the whole process taking place during the lockdown period, was completely stress free. Karen went over and above in every area with her assistance with every aspect of the purchase. We have only had a completely positive experience with Karen and Beaux Villages.

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.

Most amazing agency

By Donna Way, 14 December 2020

A special acknowledgment to Merry Curtis, who not only help us at every step, went truly above and beyond to find us our dream home, she’s a star. Would highly recommend Beaux Villages.

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.
