All of our colleagues in the field are entirely bilingual and chosen for their experience and outstanding levels of service.

Stephen Hilton heads up the Oxford-based firm. He was formerly a member of the British Diplomatic Service. Following a successful career which included a number of overseas postings and culminated in his appointment in the Foreign Office as First Secretary with responsibility for Anglo/French relations, Stephen joined the family property business as a Partner. It was from this base that La Résidence was founded in 1985. Since that time, the firm has gone from strength to strength and La Résidence is now widely regarded as one of the most respected French property companies in the UK whose opinions are regularly canvassed by property correspondents commenting on the French market.
Having himself owned a house in France for many years, he has much personal experience to add to his professional expertise. Together with his French colleagues, he has successfully arranged and overseen many hundreds of transactions, and it is now rare for him to come across any situation not previously encountered. We are based in Oxford and welcome personal visitors. If you'd like to discuss your plans face-to-face, please call us for an appointment. We'd be delighted to help to make your dreams come true.
