Client comment

"We were looking to buy an old stone building in need of renovation in the Montpellier region, but were getting nowhere with the local estate agents.

I had two children aged 5 and 3, and my husband was tied up selling his UK business, so neither of us had any time to continue our search.

We almost gave up until a friend recommended French Property Renovation. We contacted David Harris who said that property search was not his forte, but if we had exhausted the Estate Agent line of approach he would see if he could help. After investigating our requirement FPR found a property that was not yet on the market through the notaire network. It turned out to be better than we dared hope, so we immediately bought the property before it was advertised to the general public.

FPR found an architect who provided the initial sketches for free, arranged for three renovation quotes, and provided a location report with details of local schools and administrative contacts. They supervised the building work in our absence, and the work came in on time and on budget. FPR were efficient and helpful, ... it was much easier for us to deal with a British builder that we could understand perfectly, and no danger of him misinterpreting our brief."
