About Leggett Immobilier, France

Leggett Immobilier is a family business that was started 20 years ago and founded on the genuine belief that French estate agency could be done better – today this still holds true. Indeed, this belief was validated last year when we were crowned "Best Estate Agency in France" at a prestigious awards ceremony in London.

All of our agents live and work in France and have excellent local knowledge, covering both their area and local property prices. Clients are given a single point of contact who is dedicated to helping them make the right decision and to be by their side throughout the purchase process. Our in-house contracts team are experienced in dealing with local notaires and have overseen the purchase of over €1bn of French property - they will ensure that the sale progresses smoothly and our fully bilingual team will guide you through all legal documentation.

With over 220 agents spread across the country we like to think that we are now the leading international estate agency in France, last year around one in ten of all UK buyers of French property trusted us to help them. However, the company’s size and success has not altered the fact that we are a family business who pride ourselves on professionalism and friendliness.

Local knowledge is invaluable when buying in a foreign country. Leggett provides this knowledge - nearly all of our agents have lived through a move themselves and have been trained to deal with any issue or question that might arise. This training includes a three day, residential, course, further "advanced" training and access to our head office team who keep abreast of all changes in French property law and legislation.

It is this, unique, “hand-holding” approach that has helped build the foundations of our company. No other agency in France takes such care of a client before, during and after a property is purchased.

The system for buying a property in France can be complex but is regarded as being one of the safest in the world – the French like "red tape" but not much surprises us now.

With over 20 years of experience, we have the knowledge to aid with legal matters, help with finance, and even ensure that you have all the essential services connected when you make the move to your new home.

Leggett Immobilier - local knowledge you can trust.
