Disponible et attentive aux moindres détails

La vente de ma maison de famille dans le Gers s’est faite dans les meilleures conditions et je tiens à remercier l’équipe de Belle Maison pour son efficacité. Le panneau de photos de la maison qu’elle a réalisé la mettait en valeur dans son cadre de verdure. Amélie a toujours été disponible, attentive aux moindres détails pour une vente, encourageante et perspicace. La maîtrise parfaite de la langue anglaise a été un atout supplémentaire et j’ai pu vendre ma maison dans un délai très bref pour ce type de bien. De plus, grâce à la gentillesse de toute l’équipe, les rapports ont été constamment cordiaux avec les acheteurs.

An extensive knowledge of the area and properties

From my first visit to Belle-Maison. I was impressed with and grateful for the warm welcome that I received from the staff in the office.They were extremely helpful and professional, with an extensive knowledge of the area and properties, which I found extremely useful. I am delighted with my new home which Amelie found me. she also helped with negotiations with vendor and notaries. It made my move go so smoothly and would highly recommend this company to anyone searching for a property in the Gers region. I can’t thank them enough for their help and support.

Le bon goût et les précieux conseils de l’agence Belle Maison

En poussant la porte de l’agence Belle-Maison de Condom nous ne nous doutions pas que le jour même nous visiterions notre future maison. Sur un coup de cœur qui ne s’est pas démenti depuis, nous nous sommes décidés sans perdre de temps. L’agence nous a assistés avec compétence et une grande disponibilité lors des premières négociations, dans le bon déroulement des formalités de diagnostic, la demande de devis pour les travaux prévus, le choix d’artisans etc. jusqu’à la signature de l’acte définitif. Le bon goût et les précieux conseils de l’agence Belle Maison nous ont à proprement parlé ouvert la porte de la maison de nos rêves.

We could not possibly have done this without you

Wendy and I want to say a big thank you for all of your assistance in finding us the perfect home. We know it wasn’t easy, and we know we must have tested your patience to the ends. But Amélie, Raquel and Marina always remained calm, friendly and very helpful throughout, managing the whole process up to and beyond the day we finally moved in. We could not possibly have done this without you. We received a lot of conflicting information from other agents before we met you, but you set our minds straight, and sent us on the correct path. You were always right about the houses we should and shouldn’t see, yet agreed to go along with us on each occasion. Wasting countless hours of your time – but at least you always got to say I told you so. Although I don’t remember you ever saying this! We have been in our new home now for five weeks, and it already feels like we have been here forever. We love the house, the area, the people, and of course the Armagnac! We shall forever be grateful, and cannot wait for the chance to extend our thanks further, over drinks and dinner once we have finalised the dining room.

Thank you again, and best wishes as always.

Answers to all our questions

With Belle Maison’s help, we bought our home in the summer of 2015. We had seen some properties with other realtors, but Belle Maison were unique in that they showed us only places that actually meshed with our ‘wish list’, and, that they had viewed the properties before taking us to see them. They found answers to all our questions, and pointed out issues that we might not otherwise have seen. In fluent English they patiently guided us through the French real estate process, and even sat with us through all our meetings with the Notaire to ensure our understanding of the transaction.

Many thanks to Raquel and Amelie at Belle Maison for their help finding our home in France.

A thoroughly professional agency

Since arriving in France in 2004 we were fortunate to have been introduced to Belle Maison, a family run estate agent in Condom. They have located three properties for us, two of which were successfully sold by them and, this summer they sold a small investment property near La Romieu. Belle Maison is a thoroughly professional agency with efficient, motivated staff plus an excellent website. They work hard for their clients and leave no stone unturned when representing buyers and sellers. I have no hesitation in recommending this agency and look forward to working with them for many years to come.

Thank you for all your help

Thank you for all your help over both the purchase( your father in 2005) and sale in 2015. Both you and Amelie never gave up despite a pretty tough market. What I really appreciated was your help in the closing stages with a difficult purchaser. The Notaire was your introduction and I’m still using him. In the course of the past 11 years yours is the only French firm that I would recommend wholeheartedly.

My sincerest and highest recommendation

Raquel and her wonderful colleagues at Belle Maison not only found a great house for us to buy (in a country in which we do not reside full time – we are British and American), she also made sure all the crazy details that needed tending to were done and done perfectly, smoothly, easily. She took care of things I thought I would be responsible for, like contacting and setting up all of our utilities. We were so grateful for this amazing level of service and attention to detail. Raquel held my hand throughout the daunting process and made it pleasant and seemingly trivial (though it was not!). She is smart and efficient and truly caring. I give herself and her agency my sincerest and highest recommendation. We have kept in touch over the years, and now I am honored to call her a friend.

A great example of how real estate agents should operate

Belle Maison very quickly understood what we we’re looking for and did a superb job in showing us to properties that they knew would be right for us.

As an English family buying in France for the first time, Belle Maison helped us with the unfamiliar process and went out of their way to assist with every aspect of the sale.

Even after having bought our place, Belle Maison has always been very happy to help with post-sale matters.

In our view, Belle Maison is a great example of how real estate agents should operate.

Completely stress free service

Raquel and Amelie throughout the whole process you have provided us with excellent support and a completely stress free service and for that we cannot thank you enough.

Professional, responsive and willing to help

Belle Maison proved to be the perfect partners for us when it came to finding and purchasing a property in Gers. They were extremely professional, responsive and willing to help before, during and after we had purchased our property. We are not from France, so we found ourselves leaning on them for support during the purchase process – their service was great and they went above and beyond what one might expect from a typical real estate agency. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Raquel and Amelie to anyone looking to buy property in Gers.
