Our role

We believe that we have a reputation for honesty and offering impartial advice. Our job is to listen to you and understand your needs, as well as to advise you and help you every step of the way in finding or selling your property.

Our commitment

Our aim is to make your search for a property or your sale as smooth and pleasurable as possible. We can also advise you about banks, mortgages, currency exchange, notaires, insurance agents, schools, doctors, dentists – even where to play golf. After all, your search is not just about choosing a house or even a new home – it is about helping you to reach a purchasing decision which we trust will endure and make you very happy to have chosen the Tarn. When it comes to selling your home, we know that can be a stressful time. Our goal is to stand beside you, keep you abreast of changing market circumstances and make the process as comfortable as we can.

Why are we different?

We find that the key to a relaxed yet efficient time spent for you, is in the meticulous planning by us.

We taketime to listen, to interpret you needs and to ensure that we follow your ‘brief’ as closely as possible.

We understand that there is nothing more frustrating than wasting half a day seeing houses that an agent would have known was wrong for you had he only listened. We have all heard stories of asking for, say, “a restored cottage with pool” and ending up being taken to a fallen down ruin!

We know our propertieswe specialist in rural properties from classic stone country houses to village hideaways.

We work hard to ensure that the homes we propose represent good properties,fairly priced and likely to appeal to our clients.

In preparation for your visit we can arrange accommodation locally in hotels, chambres d’hôtes or gîtes. Please see the links page for extra information.
