With over 8,000 properties listed for sale on their books at any one time, a visit to Leggett Immo at A Place in the Sun Show is a must for anyone looking to buy in France.

Over the past two decades, Leggett Immobilier has established itself as one of the best known estate agencies in France. Long standing members of the FNAIM – the French professional real estate body - their success was recognised in 2013 when they were voted the Best Real Estate Agency in France in the International Property Awards.

Joanna Leggett, Marketing Director at Leggetts, who will be on their stand at the exhibition, says they now have over 220 agents working in all the most popular regions in France.

Every member of our team is bilingual, based in their local community, and can provide any purchaser with the the ideal helping hand to establish themselves when moving to – or purchasing in – a property in France,”, she says.

As a family-owned business, their reputation remains one of professionalism and friendly service.

Leggett Immo place enormous importance of helping both buyers and vendors through every step of the process: “We even have our own in-house legal team who will follow your purchase every step of the way" says Joanna. "From checking everything in your sale and purchase document (compromis de vente) is correctly filled in, to explaining the process, working with your French lawyer (notaire) to ensure the whole procedure is accomplished in an efficient and seamless manner until the sale is completed and you have the keys to your new home safely in your hand!”

But the service doesn't stop there, Leggett Immo agents are known for helping purchasers with assistance and advice from setting up utilities to finding good local artisans and how to go about local schooling!

Joanna says they currently have a very wide selection of properties on their books, “literally everything from historic houses and vineyards to do-er uppers; from homes with income to smaller 'lock and leave' holiday homes. What we do offer in particular is a comprehensive range of homes and properties in the 150,000 – 350,000 euro range and we'll be exhibiting a good selection of these at the Show.

For anyone considering purchasing in France, Joanna recommends talking to a member of the Leggetts team at A Place in the Sun Live. Then, once you've decided on the area and type of home you want, to ring their dedicated in-house Call Centre who will arrange a viewing schedule to suit you working with the local member of the Leggetts team. She says they can even help you find suitable accommodation for your buying trip!

With more stringent regulations covering property transactions in France each year, you need to know you are working with a professional estate agency whether you are buying or selling. Leggett Immo have established their reputation on old-fashioned values – service and professionalism all provided in a friendly and efficient manner!
