Edward North was extremely efficient, knowledgeable and helpful. He made the process of buying a property in France very straightforward. I cannot thank him enough.
From the first contact with Nikki Bodeldijk firstly via Internet from Australia then in person in france, Nikki went out of her way to assist with buying my house in france. At times it was daunting for me but Nikki clearly explained processes, procedures and generally what to expect along the way. I cant thank her enough for taking the worry out of it all.
I am writing to thank you and your organisation for the efficiency in handling the sale of my property in France. Everything proceeded extremely smoothly and we successfully completed the sale a couple of weeks ago. Most of the credit for this must be down to Stéphanie Donohue, we really appreciated the courteous and efficient manner that she handled our sale. She certainly went the extra mile for us! I will be happy to recommend your company to others.
I'm writing as I wish you to know what a fantastic agent you have here in Vivien Lannie (Finistere). The sale of our large house most certainly wouldn't have been possible without the compassion of Vivien. Personally, I'm enduring difficult family times, which I'm sad to say will continue, and without the huge support from Vivien, I could not have continued. Vivien Lannie has reached out on our behalf so many times, when quite honestly we could no longer cope and had reached breaking point. I know this has put a huge strain on her too, but not once did she let us down. Yes, I'm aware it's her job, however recognition, where it's most certainly due, mustn't pass by, if you have within Leggett, a way to show your appreciation to Vivien Lannie, I would be most grateful.
I am writing to you regarding the recent sale of my house in France and your agent Julie Hill. I cannot praise enough her support, professionalism and fortitude during what was one of the most stressful experiences of my life, dealing with a very difficult Notaire based in Paris over the course of three months. Whatever the problem and there were many, Julie was always there for myself and my wife, supporting and reassuring us nothing was too much trouble for her. I want to give just one example of how Julie went over and above what would be expected of her. On Tuesday the 17th of March we were due to meet the buyers and show them around the house then travel to Bordeaux with Julie to meet the Notaire from Paris and sign the sale papers. At 9 am on Monday the 16th I had a call from the van hire company to tell me that the van we had booked to move our belongings would not be released due to the Covid virus. I immediately contacted Julie because I could not see any way that we could continue with the sale, news had already leaked that M. Macron was due to announce a lockdown the following day. Julie took control of the situation with unbelievable professionalism liaising with both the buyers and the Notaire in Paris and by lunchtime, the house had been sold using proxies for both parties and we were able to board a ferry for the UK that night. I could only acquire a much smaller van so had to leave a large number of our belongings behind. The following day Julie organised our friends and supervised the collection and safe storage of our belongings, even taking some to her own house. Sir, Madam I can only say that you have an exceptional asset in the person of Mrs Hill, and I cannot thank her enough for all that she did for us.
It is a shame you can only tick one box as it does not do justice to your staff. Agents Debra and Les Bush were very attentive to our needs and requirements and kept us in the loop at every stage and also brought us a few viewings which was considerably more than other agencies. They had a good knowledge of the area and the product and I feel, did a very good job. Many thanks to them, you and your team. Sorry to say I won't need your selling services again, unless my wife wants a divorce..I have moved enough now. Joking apart... Many Thanks.

I would just like to tell you about the exceptional service we received from your agent Emily Jones. Nothing phased her and I know we were not the easiest of clients. She always returned our calls and liaised for us with the French lawyer when we found the French documents and requests difficult to understand. She went above and beyond what we expected. Her happy demeanour gave us the utmost confidence, that she had our best interests at heart. Emily is a great asset to Leggett France!!

We have purchased a plot of land in Brantome through Leggett and your agent, Lesley Allan. Lesley has been wonderful, she has gone above and beyond what we could ever have expected - it has been a lengthy process. I think if it had been anyone else they would have given up but she has helped us in so many ways we feel we would still not have a plot of land if it was not for her tenacity and professionalism. She has acted as interpreter and has made many trips to resolve issues with planning, our Notaire and the Mairie and has enlisted the help of neighbours. She has also attended meetings and shared unique knowledge of the area and local tradespeople. We cannot praise her enough and has been an excellent envoy for Leggett.

The Agent had a great ability to get in touch, identify what kind of person he is dealing with and adapt for the best result for all parties (the seller included) Clearly an expert in the field of human relations and perfect in Real Estate.
Sometimes its the simple things that matter most; arriving on time for the viewings, knowing the area, knowing the vendors, having courtesy, personality and sense of humour - you deserve to do very well
