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

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.  

Anna and the BVI team found us our house

Buyers

By Philip Saben, 17 August 2021

During our long search for a French home we had dealings with a number of agents and eventually viewed 46 houses. Much of our search was very frustrating because of a problem with most of the agents which was that many of the Houses shown to us were patently unsuitable for us. We had provided the agents with a specific set of requirements regarding our needs regarding condition, location, size, condition, facilities, access and price. We were offered many Houses with none of our criteria. This led to much time and money wasting and frustration on our part and despite much pleading to some agents they still proposed houses which were totally unsuitable. I suspect the fact that most agencies only paid their freelancers a commission upon sale was the cause of this problem and showing a house placed no financial burden on the agencies themselves, only their freelancers. We then found Beaux Villages and especially Anna Stewart. The properties she showed us were close to our needs but not quite right. One day she called and told us she thought she had found the one. She was right, a property just on the market, even the detail sheet was not yet printed. Only 2 viewings and we made an offer. We moved in on May 2018. Beaux Villages are highly
recommended, professional, persistent, helpful and trustworthy.

Laura was amazing!

Sellers

By Catherine Pring, 10 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. Cx

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
 

Karen Braddock at Beaux Villages was fantastic.

By Abi Goodwin, 21 July 2021

She went above and beyond to fit in viewings around our tight schedule and answered all our questions promptly. There was follow up without being too pushy. Great service thank you !

Ann Devicchi guided us through everything

Buyers

By Anne-Marie Hassenkamp, 19 July 2021

We were dealing with Ann Devicchi as our agent . Originally, we had only visited the office to have a look at what was on the market in the region around Riberac and speak to an agent but Ann got us to see 2 properties immediately, one of which we bought. Ann was very helpful, knowledgeable and quick in responding to our queries - especially as our French was not quite up to business negotiations. We were also extremely lucky with our vendor who could not have been more cooperative with Ann and us. Ann also managed to guide us through everything during covid as were obviously not allowed to see the property again after August.

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.

James and Su were on top of everything

Sellers

By Linda Thompson, 12 July 2021

James Ickringill and his wife Sue, went the extra mile to help us sell our house, they were always extremely easy to deal with and had their fingers on the pulse through the whole process.

A big thank you to Carol!

Buyers

By Darren & Gem Harding, 02 July 2021

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

Su was always there to help

Su Ickringill, our agent at Beaux Villages, advised us and attended to all our needs during the sale of our property. Responses to queries were answered by return and we had complete confidence throughout. Thank you!

I would like to thank you for the professionalism that you showed when we first contacted BVI.

Anna secured our dream French home

Buyers

By Amanda Buckley, 13 June 2021

We had an excellent experience with Beaux Villages, Verteillac. They were recommended to us for our search for a holiday home in that area around of France. We had particularly been advised to ask for Anna Stewart. It was a good recommendation, we found Anna professional, knowledgable, incredibly helpful on every step of the process – which can be complicated at times. Nothing was too much trouble and when our purchase completion was suddenly postponed because of Covid-19, Anna helped in all the to-ing and fro-ing that we had to go through to finally secure our dream French home.

We couldn't have done it without you Carol!

Buyers

By Sue Du Feu, 20 May 2021

Carol, our agent couldn’t have been more helpful. She guided us through the very tricky process of buying a property and also assisted us to sort out the water and electricity companies. We couldn’t have done it without her.

Sean Kelly was a joy to work with

Buyers

By Mr and Mrs Thompson, 18 May 2021

My wife and I worked with Sean Kelly of Beaux Villages Immobilier for the locating and purchasing of our Home in the Dordogne Area of France.
Sean was excellent in his work for us and was a joy to work with.

Covid-19 just started strong when we connect with Sean to get information on a property we were interested in. He want above and beyond to make us feel comfortable in purchasing our Home during this difficult time

Sean did Video Walk Throughs for us of the house we were interested in - including the surrounding neighborhood!

We are from the USA and have tres peu de francais (very little French)! Sean made sure we understood each step of the Purchasing Process. He kept on top of all the Paper Work and made sure we had assistances from all the other Agencies we need to complete our purchase.

When every we had a question or concern, Sean either had the answer or researched and found the answer for us.

Most important, Sean never pressured us to make a decision. He wanted us to be Fully Happy with the outcome of our French Home Purchase and we are!

Thank You so Much,
Enwood and Leslee

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
