17/09/21 Translated from french: We sold our house in Creuse on 16 July 2021. The positive commercial, professional and human approach from the first contact with the estate agent, Mr Jan Kuik, was flawless right up to the handing over of the keys to the buyer. We can only recommend this agency and particularly Mr Kuik. His availability and responsiveness should be an example for the profession. Many thanks, Christian and Martine V.

15/09/21 Just a quick note on buying our house with Cathe. She was very helpful at all stages of the process, which in our case took around 12 months due to COVID. She answered questions beyond her direct responsibility and investigated and came back to us. It was a good experience overall.

15/09/21 Translated from dutch: We would like to express our satisfaction with the excellent help and support of Mr Jan Kuik in selling our house in the Auvergne region. He was always there for us and for those who were interested. Thanks again! Arnold and Elly.

Hi, This email is to inform you of how pleased we were with your agent Anita de Bresser. We purchased our house in France without first seeing it, only via a video that Anita provided and extra photographs. At every stage of the proceedings Anita was very helpful, professional and understanding. We feel that she went above and beyond her role in helping us understand the complexities of French law and was always willing to translate anything we required, often in her own time after work. You should be proud that Anita works for your company and I hope you inform her of our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to her in the purchasing of our house. Kind regards, Philip A.

13/09/21  Bonjour, We recently bought a small house in Millac through your agent Cathe Bower. The whole process was handled very well by Cathe. Cathe was responsive to our demands (and tolerant of my moans) and all the time with good humour. We would certainly recommend her to others looking to buy or sell a property. In all, a stressful process was made at lot easier thanks to Cathe. Cordialement, Colin F.

30/08/21 Translated from german: Dear Mrs Kubbe, we found our dream house in Mont-et-Marre with the help of Leidy Franken. Mrs Franken was always open to our questions during the entire purchase process and explained everything to us patiently and always in a friendly manner. We were very happy to have Leidy as our advisor on our side. Yours sincerely, Christiane and Karl.

Cathe successfully matched us with a buyer and worked hard to secure a sale. All went smoothly, professionally and in a timely manner and I am satisfied. Thanks, Andy.

29/08/21 My wife and I began our search for a château in France over a year ago. Living in the U.S. and not speaking French, made this a challenging venture for us. It was very difficult and frustrating finding an agent who was willing to help us. During our quest, we were blessed to cross paths with Mr. Joost KUBBE. Fortunate for us, Joost's resume included speaking/writing both English and French as well as other languages, so we no longer had to deal with the communication barrier. He also replied back to our e-mails extremely quickly with answers to all of our questions, which was not what we experienced with other agents. Joost also found time in his busy schedule to converse with us on the phone. It was always pleasant to speak with him and he made us feel comfortable and that our mission was important to him. During our quest, Joost visited several possible properties for us and gave a professional analysis of each one. We eventually found and purchased the perfect property for us (unseen, because of covid, we visited it just before the end of the 10 days retraction period, it was really perfect, and signed the final deed 2 weeks later). This would not have been possible without Joost. Even after the purchase, he went above and beyond the call of duty to help us with all the issues associated with living in France. We highly recommend Joost to anyone looking for property in France. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable about all aspects involving purchasing a property in France." Merci beaucoup ! Patrick.

23/08/21: Marianne, We are pleased to say that Cathe made us very happy. We have just recently completed on the second house we have sold in France with Cathe’s help, and would recommend anyone to use her either as buyer or seller. The service she provides far exceeds anything that we would expect from an estate agent in the UK. The fact that we chose her again to sell our second property is witness to the fact that we were very pleased with her service in selling our first property, both holiday homes. Kind regards Pat & Jack B.

26/07/21 Translated from dutch: Recently (May 2021) our house in the Yonne (Bourgogne) was sold by Joost Kubbe from Immoboulevard. The whole process from offering for sale to the completion was full of unexpected snags and catches, raised by the French authorities. Joost Kubbe is in all respects a calm, reliable and alert estate agent, who is thoroughly familiar with the obstacles that were impenetrable for us and who has also taken almost everything off our hands. An absolute must! Pieter and Wieke.

06/07/21 Translated from dutch: Recently, we became the proud owners of our dream home in France. During the purchase process we were guided in a professional way by Anita De Bresser. Everything was arranged down to the last detail. Can you thank her on our behalf for all the work done?

07-07-21 Translated from french. Marianne and Herman were perfect and comforting. And this doesn’t happen very often in this profession.

06-07-21 Translated from French. When we sold our house we had a lot of help from the agency. We don't know much about the regulations for selling a property in France and we asked Marianne to take care of it and sort it out for us. She did this in a very professional manner and always answered our questions efficiently. We are very satisfied with the services of this agency.

05-07-21 Translated from Dutch. Profesionnal advice and the house was well marketed via the internet but also a television programme in England. The house was sold quickly. Settlement took a bit longer but that is a consequence of the French circumstances. We will certainly recommend this agency and especially Anita de Bresser asap.

18-06-21 Translated from French. From the first phone conversation we had a very good impression and confidence in Leidy. It is not easy to buy a house from a distance and Leidy was able to reassure us and take all the stress out of the purchase by answering all our questions. She is very professional.

18-06-21 Translated from French. We were accompanied by Anita de Bresser in our purchase, she was able to answer all our questions and queries from the beginning to the signing. Always present and available.

16-06-20 Translated from French. Very good follow-up of the file throughout the sale and very efficient.

Translated from french "Hello Mr Kubbe, I wanted to contact you about my property purchase in December last year. Your agent Cathe Bower was outstanding, she kept in touch and suggested properties, she was really interested in matching me with the right house.Cathe ensured that my purchase went smoothly, without any problems and all in 26 days, from viewing to signing and paying for the house - I think that is a record in France? Could you please pass on my sincere thanks to Cathe, she really made my dream of living in this beautiful country come true and I am very grateful. With my best wishes. Rachel H. "
