TESTIMONIALS FROM HOME BUYERS
"Misleading advertising and a somewhat arcane system mean purchasing French real estate can leave foreign buyers at a big disadvantage. Smartfinder is a very good solution for the problem."
Marnie Delaney (US) - 2019
"I had been going directly to estate agents but ... decided to use Alistair to simplify the process....Within a short space of time he found my dream home. I have now used Alistair for 3 property purchases in the Var and in Cannes and would use him again in a heartbeat"
Claire Randall (UK) - 2019
"After a total of five years in the area we have heard a large number of horror stories about buying houses, and the help of someone like Alistair is highly recommended."
Chris and Alison (UK) - 2019
"Alistair assembled a long list of properties, and he arranged for me to see a shortlist of 8 over a period of 2 days. I am now the delighted owner of a house in Provence. Friends who did not use a housefinder were amazed at the speed and ease with which I found and acquired a house - it took them 4 years to do what I had done in 4 months" Fiona Jones (UK) - 2018
"Buying property in Provence is not easy and without Alistair's help, we never would have found the house we wanted and completed the purchase on the terms that we did."
Andrew & Geraldine (UK) - 2018
"The services provided by SmartFinder Home were as great as one can only imagine.....Highly recommended, in particular for a foreigner in France, who's knowledge of the local circumstances and language are minor."
Michael (Germany) - 2018
"I lost time by contacting a large number of agencies receiving dozens of houses that did not correspond at all to what I wanted. 2 months after contacting Smartfinder Home I have a home in Provence. I can only thank Smart Home Finder who understood my request, sought what I wanted, and found the property at the desired price."
Daniel Mannerie. (Belgium) - 2016
I contacted Smartfinder Home to find an apartment in the Gulf of St Tropez, being myself in real estate in Switzerland, I did not want to run after agencies.
So I gave my criteria to Mr. Phillips and he found the right home for us and took care of everything. I can only recommend Mr. Phillips' services for his professionalism and availability. " Pierre Sauser (Switzerland) - 2017
"Luckily we discovered Alistair who was able to assist us professionally through the entire purchasing process - it reduced the number of exploratory trips and helped us save money and speeded up the search. Most important was having Alistair on our side going the extra mile, a person who was trustworthy and acting in our best interest. In the end we got a very nice place we fully enjoy.."
Andreea E.(Singapore) - 2016
"Your search presented a fantastic range of options which were exactly the sort of thing we were looking for. I really appreciate all your help in finding a property."
Jessica K. (UK) - 2016
"I have just consulted your shortlist of houses, which seem to me very interesting. Compared to the market in this region, your selection has been of great help."
Thierry M. (France) - 2015
"We had the chance to meet Mr. Philips, who after a lot of work upfront and sending many links, organized visits for us over 2 days in the Luberon and the Var and we found the home that suited us on just the second day.
Mr. Philips and his staff were able to find what we were looking for in a short time, and at the right budget. We very much appreciated this collaboration and recommend Mr Philips with confidence." Mrs. Rieu (France) - 2017
"Alistair advised about our choices saving us unnecessary journeys. This was a great help as I don't think we would have coped without his knowledge and French language skills.
We have now settled in to our lovely home. We could not have achieved what we did without his services."
Lee and Diane Baldwin. (UK) - 2015
"Accept my thanks for your fast response ! The list matched my search criteria. Very good service overall. Thank you again for your advice!"
Catherine D. (France) - 2015
