Jacquie's Vendee property searching & management services
Before her work in property and move to France, Jacquie had a love affair with France and things French including living there for a year with a French family in the Dordogne after which she worked as an Occupational Counsellor and Life Coach at senior level in the UK. Her negotiation and influencing skills for this, along with her ability to recognise potential in properties and eye for interior design, Jacquie is well placed to help you find and purchase your French home.
Property finding services: they listen, search and show you the most suitable properties
It’s as simple as that really. Jacquie used property finders - sometimes called buying agents - to help her find her original place in the Vendee, now she assists others to do the same by identifying the right area and property but then also going through the differences between buying property in English-speaking countries and France. Having fun along the way is also important!
Listening to your wish list is key. Sometimes people have a clear list, other times they need some help with identifying what their dream property would be like. Remember your new home must not only look good but fit your lifestyle. Whether it is going to be your holiday home or permanent base, Jacquie will help you to track down the perfect home in the perfect setting.
After identifying your needs, she seeks out and visits a wide selection of local properties and draws up a shortlist of the best sending an honest report on each, along with independent photographs so that you can be confident that ‘what you see is what you get’. She can also advise on travelling to the area and even meet you at the airport or arrange a tour of the area to familiarise yourself before you draw up your shortlist. You would usually spend two days going around shortlisted properties and Jacquie is on hand to ask questions of the owners/estate agents, so it doesn't matter if your French is a bit rusty.
