Worked tirelessly providing an exceptional service


By Mrs and Mr B, 30 November 2016

Testimonial for Gill and Mike Puttock

Gill and Mike Puttock have given us both an exceptional and professional service. They have worked tirelessly and really targeted the properties very well for us.

All the Beaux Villages agents we have met have been extremely professional yet manage to create a personal relationship at the same time.

Mrs and Mr B

Prompt, personal and well informed

Testimonial for Lee Redican and Emma Waddington

Compared to previous experiences in Belgium and Spain...Congratulations!

If you didn't work with Lee Redican and his wife Emma Waddington, you really should. They are real people taking care in a very personal way of their potential customers. They work independent I believe. But I am convinced they work in the interest of the customer, trying to be fair for both parties. They don't push and take their time. Perfect.

Prompt, personal and well informed people.

Kind regards,


Reputation lead us to fabulous and honest agent

Testimonial for Geof Cryer

Geof is fabulous because he isn't pushy and gives advice and opinion when asked. When we started looking we asked around the area for a company and someone who was honest and Geof's name and Beaux Villages came up every single time.

Without a doubt, the best realtor in France

Testimonial for Edite Hill

I had a very enjoyable trip. And I appreciate your putting me in touch with Edite Hill again. She is without doubt the best realtor with whom I've worked in France - she listens very well, and is resourceful and very, very efficient. On top of which it's a real pleasure to spend time with her as she's very considerate and is a lot of fun.

Testimonial for Judith Whitlow


By Jean, 24 October 2016

I go back to the UK today but wanted to thank you for your time, honesty and kindness in helping us, it was most appreciated and lovely to quickly feel I was dealing with some-one I could trust. I am sure other questions will emerge but I remain hopelessly in love with the house!

Testimonial for Judith Whitlow


By Jo and Mario, 24 October 2016

You will be glad to know that everything at the house is coming along as well as can be expected .... and we are beginning to get to grips with the many sophisticated systems here ! We have water, electricity, hot water, drainage, heating, and working internet, phone and telly ... could not really ask for more after just one week ! More importantly ..... the dogs seem to be settling in well. I wanted to thank you for all the help you have given Mario and I, which in no small way accounts for why things have gone so smoothly for us. Beaux Villages is an excellent estate agency - but you go far beyond what might be expected in terms of helping and guiding people ..... not only through the process of a purchase, but also towards making a happy life here. We would also like to thank you personally, as we would certainly not have come across this house by doing our own searches. You have that very rare quality of actually listening to people and searching through your mental rolodex to see if there are any properties on your books that might fit with their needs and wants. These comments are genuinely heartfelt, and we would be happy for them to be published on your website.

Best Wishes from Jo & Mario



By Joy, 12 August 2016

Hello Mike, I have to say of all the estate agents over the past couple of years who I, over and over again, told my requirements you are the only one who listened!!

Testimonial for Mike Sweetman


By Toby, 25 May 2016

Hi Mike, just a quick email to thank you and your team for making our visit last week such an enjoyable experience. Mary & I are so excited about our purchase and I have forward bought my currency through Smart Exchange (really helpful). Your name is used and was used quite a few times when we took the long way round on our travels. A detour will be known as a "Sweetman" from now on. All the best to you all. Regards Toby

Testimonial for Alex Overton-Hunt...


By Jim and Sian, 25 May 2016

...Andy Spiers, Tracy Faulkner and Mike Sweetman:

We returned last night from our house hunting sojourn in France and feel impelled to let you know of the lasting and positive impression made by the members of the Beaux Villages Group we met during our visit. They were, in chronological order: Andy Spiers and Mike Sweetman at the Jonzac office, and Alex Overton-Hunt at Verteillac. It is Alex to whom we owe a real debt of gratitude as he gave up a great deal of his time for us; he was personally charming, professionally experienced and knowledgeable. Thanks to him we learned a great deal about what it is to live in France which, to us, is every bit as important as buying a property there. Never once did we feel pressurised; there was no “hard sell” but what we did feel was a great respect for this consummate professional. Even those people whom we contacted but, for a variety of reasons, did not meet were charming and unfailingly helpful such as Tracy Faulkner whose administrative skills kept us regularly informed and well organised. As an organisation you must be very proud of the impression of your company given to prospective buyers by your individual agents and administrators. May I also compliment you on the quality of your web site; not only is it attractive to look at, having large photographs of properties, but the detailed information is also invaluable to a prospective purchaser. At the moment of writing we are awaiting a response to an offer we submitted but, regardless of whether we realise our dream home as a result of this visit, we will continue to hold the Beaux Villages Group in very high regard. With our thanks and very best wishes to all involved, Jim and Sian

Testimonial for Anne Kemp-Reynolds

Kind regards, Mr and Mrs B McCarthy

Testimonial for Jacqui Reddin


By Val C, 04 March 2016

I live in the UK and had a holiday home in France that I needed to sell. Jacqui was recommended to me by a friend. From the start she was very energetic, talking me through the sale procedure, organising the pre-sale diagnostic tests, advertising the house, and showing people around. Within a short space of time she produced a purchaser whose criteria fitted exactly my property. From then on Jacqui was busy, liaising with the purchaser and the notaire and updating me on progress towards completion. She is reliable, straightforward and friendly and goes above and beyond her brief for her clients. Consequently the sale was quite stress-free for me and I cannot thank her enough. If you’re looking for a pro-active estate agent, she’s your woman! Val C

Testimonial for Jane Collett and Shannon Daly


By Valerie McDonald, 21 February 2016

A huge thank you to Beaux Villages for an outstanding service. We have successfully completed on a property and the process was orchestrated very well by Jane and Shannon. Jane's meticulous paperwork and Shannon's patience, kindness and calm attitude got us through the whole process beautifully. We have now successfully moved in and are grappling with the plumbing and heating but enjoying the challenge! A massve thank you to all and especially Shannon....your support and generous help especially on you day off was hugely appreciated. Valerie

Testimonial for Edite Hill


By Patricia, 13 November 2015

During the year long sale of our house in Cazes Mondenard, Edite has always been positive and given us many viewings. We have found her to be efficient and business like. She is now helping us to find a new house. Above all I would now consider her a friend.


All-round great


By Gregory, 09 November 2015

Laura is a great person to have as an agent. She didn’t limit her efforts to provide us the necessary information, and also helped us out on other matters specific to our situation. Thank you Laura.


Testimonial for Laura Croxford

By Ellie, 09 November 2015

You did a great job !!!!


Testimonial for Geof Cryer and Laura Croxford

We will not forget your kindness


By Bernard, Berenice & Mark, 02 November 2015

The only thing we are really disappointed by is that we were not able to buy a house from you and we are really sad about it. You have been extremely helpful, in more ways than one. We are so thankful to you and we will not forget your kindness.

Testimonial for Jacqueline Reddin-Williams


By John & Olwyn Stewart, 16 October 2015

We want to say how impressed we are with the professional service and advice we received from Jacqui when selling our house in France. The house was sold in record time and, although very saleable, this was also very much due to the research put in by her in finding the right buyers for our house. Jacqui is very pro-active and makes a point of getting to know the house, so was therefore very positive and knowledgeable when showing people around the property. She was always on call to answer any problems that arose in connection with the sale, so in doing so took a lot of the strain away from us. You also have a very well presented website and we couldn't recommend Jacqui and your company highly enough. Many thanks.

Testimonial for Jacqueline Reddin-Williams


By Melanie & Lyall Cory, 05 October 2015

We would like to say a huge thank you to Jacqui Reddin for all her help and support in selling our much loved home in France. Jacqui was always supportive and professional, she is a delight to deal with and all through our complicated sale she kept us informed. Thank you Jacqui, we will miss you.

Testimonial for Mike Sweetman


By Suzie, 24 August 2015

I will just have to keep waiting until we find that lovely stone house. It's got to have the true rustic essence. Thanks for your help. I really want to buy a house through you as you've been the best!
