Easy currency exchange
I wanted to let you know that we transferred our deposit money to the Notary earlier this week. We used Smart (Currency Exchange) who were very easy to deal with, thanks for the recommendation.

Supportive and knowledable
We found Beaux Villages when we first came to the Dordogne. We tried another agency but immediately found that the BVI staff knew the properties, were much more amenable and spoke English, which was a great help. It took us almost 2 years to find our new home, during this time we never felt that we were being rushed to find somewhere. They took their time to explain all aspects of property purchase, here in France, and to make sure our home would be the one we were after.
Thanks to Caroline for all the hard work and patience shown on our behalf and thank you also to Sarah – Lalinde office and to Anna – Verteillac office who have been very supportive since we found our “dream home”.

Testimonial for Carol Wells
Thank you very much for sending through the property details.
You have been busy and a good selection, We have also heard from (other agents), but in fairness I do feel the level of service we have had from you has been very impressive so far, and I would much rather deal with you.

Thanks and very best regards
Your agent, Chris Remnant was really great and showed us a lovely house. We have deliberated for some time as to whether to buy the house Chris showed us or another house at the coast, and I'm afraid, the coast won! We have made an offer and had it accepted.
I must say, that we have had a total of three viewing trips, two to the Bordeaux area and recently the one in Languedoc, and have seen some wonderful properties with your fantastic agents. The fact that we have not bought a house we saw with you is not because of lack of effort or enthusiasm, it is because we found the right house which just happened to be listed with another agent!
I would like to thank Mike Sweetman in the Bordeaux region and both Richard Search and Chris Remnant in Languedoc for all their help with our search!
If, in the event, our purchase does not go ahead I will be in touch!
With renewed thanks and very best regards,

I would recommend Beaux Villages
Dear Karen Frichtley and Anne Kemp-Reynolds
Just a quick note to thank you both most sincerely for all your help in purchasing our new property.
I certainly could not have expected any more ***stance from you both. None of my dumb questions seemed too dumb and you both were ever so patient, which I really do appreciate.
I certainly would recommend the services of Beaux Villages to anyone in a similar position in wanting to buy in the Dordogne.
All kind wishes and heartfelt thanks.

Professional and courteous
Now the dust has settled and we have concluded a purchase in France I wish to write to commend Lucy Hollis, she was extremely professional, courteous and represented your business in a very professional manner.
My only regret was not being able to find a property for purchase from you but be assured I have already promoted to other potential buyers of property your company.
Hope you and especially Lucy have a busy and profitable 2018

Dream Team !
Dream Team at Tournon D'Agenias..
So you do the usual....cruise the websites, select a broad area, perhaps even venture into offices that have pictures in window of properties for sale..."how hard can it be ?" you ask yourself !...What you forget to think about is the added value a good agent will bring - and Beaux Villages do just that - willingly, with good nature and a high quality service - from phone calls, viewing properties (some occupied, some not), finding the property in the first place ! Email correspondence, worries about anything, advice about the things you'll need: bank accounts; money transfer; perhaps even a contact for a local trades-person, and of course interpretation of "legal-ese"....the list goes on.
Beaux Villages helped us find what we were looking for - and after 3 years of looking and dreaming ....they unlocked the door for us! A genuine thank you to the team, and I mean "team" - because you get the TEAM, not just one agent.
Special thanks though to Kevin and Judith, a great couple that have the experience, first hand, know what its like and can unlock the dream you've been looking for.

At last an agent who gives that little extra
I've been seaching, it seems forever, for a property in France and have become increasingly frustrated by what appears to be an element of "dolittle" agencies, who upload 6 photos with a very brief 2 line description and then charge 7% and more; my best to date has been 6 words and 3 pictures and a commission of 9% !!!
Whilst I haven't found that elusive "perfect" property on Beaux Villages, I'm sure I've got 20 times more chance of finding it here than with other "agents". I am regularly seeing 20+ pictures and comprehensive descriptions, if only others took the hint.
Meanwhile, I'll get back to the search :-)

Outshining other agents
Testimonial for Nicole Killick
I recommend this firm. Nicole has been very proactive and has outshone the other agents acting both in terms of proactivity and helpfulness. She is bringing us more viewings by quite a margin and a lot of French families. The latest yesterday was a French family based in Paris. It was a bank holiday so very peaceful!!
You sounded knowledgeable enough to know about the CGT and Social Tax that can be levied on a sale. I am slowly understanding the position.

An honest agent made a great experience
Testimonial for Kevin Whitlow
Kevin First of all thank you for you time, navigational skills, honest opinion, great humour and sharing of experience yesterday. We loved every minute of it and you inspired us with confidence that we were right to contact the "Beaux Villages" team, so thank you to you and everyone at the office.
A dream come true
Testimonial for Anne Kemp-Reynolds
Lovely to hear from you and in many ways it is you who has made our dream come true. By being such a kind person and ambassador for your company you kept me chasing my dream!
The house is exactly me! We just love the stroll down to the beautiful river and the restaurant on its banks.
Do keep in touch and thanks again.

Great job -- an offer within a few weeks!
Testimonial for Mike Sweetman
Thank you, we can hardly believe it, the other agents managed to get just a handful of viewers between them and in a few weeks Beaux Villages got us an offer. Karen did a great job, think you're the only proactive agents in the Charente!!
Will definitely be recommending your services .
Fingers crossed all goes smoothly!

In very safe hands
Testimonial for Jemma Simkins and Ian Scullion
Hope that you are well. Once again, our apologies for not being able to meet with you personally whilst we were on our visit. We would like you to know that we felt in very safe hands with Ian Scullion unlike the other agents we met he was not pushy in any way, he gave us the time we needed to consider our options and was knowledgeable and courteous throughout.

An easy and stress free process
Testimonial for Norbert Juin
Happy New Year! I had hoped to email you before Christmas but never quite got round to it!
I just wanted to contact you to thank you for all your help and support over the last few months while we have been going through the purchase of the property in Le Vert. We couldn't have done it without you and you made the whole process very easy and stress free!!
We are coming over in February to look at what needs to be done and try and organise the pool installation. It would be great to catch up with you sometime so please let us know if you are in the area and you can pop in for a coffee or glass of wine! We are there from the 11th-17th Feb.
