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

Happy New Year

Testimonial for Geof Cryer, Gregory Lemmes and Catherine Vanackere:

I wish to put on record how pleased I was with the way the sale of my house was handled.

Geof Cryer, Gregory Lemmes and Catherine Vanackere made an amazing team !

My contact at Beaux Villages was Geof and although my house was on your database, several of his colleagues made the effort to see the house physically for themselves.

My first contact was Geof but the purchasers were contacts from Gregory. Great teamwork!

Despite the efforts made by Geof and Gregory, I am convinced that the sale of my house would have fallen through had it not been for the precious aide of Catherine.

Her coordination with the buyers, notaire and myself was absolutely crucial. Catherine reassured the buyers every step of the way, liaising with the Notaire (which I know was not an easy task).

She is professional, knowledgeable, focused, calm and very reassuring. Both the clients and myself trusted Catherine implicitly. Buying and selling are not just financial transactions but also emotional. Catherine has the qualities which embodies both these needs. She goes the extra mile and more !!

The courtiers do their utmost to find the best home for buyers but without someone of Catherine’s qualities coordinating, I am sure that a lot of sales would not finalise.

My thanks to Beaux Village for this amazing team !

Thanks for all your hard work

The key to the successful sale of our home!

Testimonial for Ginny George:

My name is Julia Jeapes and my husband Brian and I have just (23.9.19.) successfully completed the sale of our house via your company. Having reached this point, we both felt that we had to highlight the excellent work by one of your employees, Ginny George. The sale of our home in France was an emotional decision and so the whole process could have been a very difficult experience for us.

However Ginny was highly professional and was able to answer all our questions and dealt with our concerns in a very effective and efficient way. She was always contactable and responded quickly to all our queries sorting out the inevitable problems along the way. Her interpersonal skills are excellent and her caring and considerate attitude, where she often went the 'extra mile', was an enormous help to both parties. We cannot praise Ginny highly enough she has worked hard, with integrity and empathy. We are both sure that Ginny was key to the successful sale of our home. She is a great ambassador for your company. Please pass on our sincere thanks and gratitude.

We were lucky to have Edite

By Géraldine, 23 September 2019

Myself and my husband spent the earlier part of this year searching for a new home in France.

During this time we relied heavily on Beaux Villages as we found you the most efficient and professional agents operating in France. We were lucky to have Edite as our main contact and would like to say thanks for her services; she ensured she knew our particular requirements and put an exceptional amount of time and effort in to finding a suitable home for us.

Many thanks once again.

Angella worked hard and was very supportive

Testimonial for Angella Turner

Acting as our agent Angella located and introduced us to an excellent, English-speaking notaire and attended every meeting during the sale process. She pre-warned us of certain protocols involved in buying multiple parcels of land and was instrumental in correcting an error in the parcel identification.

Angella worked hard and was very supportive, emotionally and practically. She acted in lieu of the notaire for the vendors and ensured all paperwork was forthcoming and correct.

Testimonial for Caroline Sweeney

I just want to thank you for such a great day house hunting with you last Friday. You were so helpful! Every house we viewed on the day had something different to offer.

We can not thank you enough for your help in us finding our home in France. Your professional guidance in helping us fine tune our search by finding the things that we really needed to prioritise moving forward.

We have just got back home and now have to put more thought in to our next visit. We look forward to seeing any houses that you think might meet our needs.

Thanks again and again it was lovely easy day, and you really put us at ease. It was lovely to meet you.

Best

Testimonial for Geraldine Millet and Emma Waddington.

Having sold up in the south of France we were prepared to bank our euros in France and wait out 2 years until Brexit was sorted.

And then we came to Montmorillon for 5 days relaxation and suddenly fell in love with the town. We decided to tentatively view a few properties just to get a feel of what was available and at what prices, but had no plans to buy at this time.

Beaux Villages was in fact the last agent we visited in the town (so 2 others had the opportunity to sell us the house we eventually bought, but hadn't taken the opportunity to show it to us).

Geraldine listened to what our requirements were and saw I was getting enthusiastic about one (outside the town) in the Beaux Villages window. Unfortunately, it was already under offer but she searched through her books and came up with a similar one that was in the town. We felt on first viewing it was perfect for us in so many ways. We are so grateful that Geraldine showed us the property. We are finding as each day passes more ways that this is the absolutely perfect house for us.

We did a second viewing 2 days later with Emma and just knew we had to make an offer (despite the Brexit uncertainty). Emma handled the offer negotiations for us and it was a tense period for us both, as we had a finite budget of euros available from the sale of our property. She did a superb job and concluded the negotiations well within our budget, and even took the time to call us on Easter Sunday to tell us the good news.

The period that follows the offer being accepted to completion is always difficult, but Emma was always available to smoothly facilitate the process to its' conclusion. Again, we are so grateful to have the ongoing support and even after we had moved in, Emma supported us in getting the utilities sorted.

You hear so many stories about the hit and miss experiences of working with estate agents in France, but we have had both an excellent experience when we sold, and an excellent experience when we bought again.

Many thanks to you both. Sorry Geraldine, but Emma ate all the cakes that we bought for you as a thank you.

Thank you for your support

Testimonial for Carola van Aswegen

Thank you to Carola for negotiating the sale with our buyers and for all her hard work guiding us through the sale. Also for keeping us regularly informed and aiding our buyers to visit the property while we were in the UK.

She made a worrying time very easy. As long as BV employ people as talented as Carola they will always be top choice for property moves.

Helen is a credit to your business.

Testimonial for Helen Dawson

I recently contacted Beaux Villages as I was looking to purchase a property in France. A lovely lady called Helen Dawson subsequently contacted me and arranged for me to view several properties. Even though we had no car and were staying in Rochechouart Helen arranged to pick us up and drove us to the properties in the Dordogne. Throughout the whole day Helen was extremely warm and friendly and made the whole day very enjoyable.

Helen is a credit to your business.

Thank you all

After years of search we discovered Beauxvillages who enabled us to find our home in less than 2 weeks . Thank to all people we met. From Gregory who let us know Beauxvillages, Vanessa who directed us to Geraldine who understood our needs and made a very good filtering in our researchs. And then to Carola who proposed us one house who matched our needs. This first visit was done with respect of sellers intimity. We had the joy to understand that this first visit would finally be our last because it was the good one. And also to Stéphanie who took care of the compromis and is impressive in its skill domains. And Kate who is in charge of the administrative part, and is the link between us, the notaire and the sellers. Thank you all.

Delighted!

Thanks again for your flawless guidance through the buying process and we too hope we will see you again soon. Best regards & enjoy a relaxing break!
