It is always a pleasure to meet our clients, however, we understand that you may not have the time and we may not be based near your purchase. Our clients buy all over France’s beautiful and varied regions, from Paris to the Alps, the Cote d’Azur, the Dordogne, Bordeaux etc.  All of our exchanges can be done remotely via phone, email and video chat.As brokers, we have an overall view of the banking options available to your personal project.  We can help you avoid losing time, applying to banks who do not accept non-resident clients or the type of property you are buying. All our banking partners accept non-French documents and have the capacity to analyze non-French tax returns, payslips etc. Depending on the language, there may be a request to translate into English or French.
