Dag og Marit Tjøstheim - Bergen -NORGE

Vi kjøpte en rekkehusleilighet i Perpignan for to år siden. Det er ikke i et typisk feriehusområde. så vi bor blant "vanlige" franskmenn. Chris Pierrelee har vært vår kontaktmann fra første stund, ved kjøp, i byggeperioden og etterpå. Vi er ekstremt godt fornøyd både med huset og med Chris. Han har hele tiden fulgt oss opp på en måte som er helt ekstraordinær. Når jeg sender email til ham har jeg alltid et svar innen et par timer. Dette gjelder ikke bare under kjøpsprosessen og i byggeperioden, men også i oppfølgningen av noen småproblemer etterpå. Vi kan gi ham og hans agentur Paradise i Collioure våre aller beste anbefalinger. Jeg tror det er ytterst vanskelig å finne hans like. Marit og Dag Tjøstheim


Serge Ravailhe- Cirencester-UK

Nous avons eu à faire avec l'agence Paradise de Collioure et plus précisemment avec Christophe et Neil. Deux professionnels qui ont compris nos souhaits et nous ont encouragé d'acheter une maison dans laquelle nous nous sommes beaucoup plus. Lorsque nous avons souhaité revendre, ils ont su trouvér le bon acheteur. Que ce soit, avant ou aprés les transactions, ils se sont montrés très disponibles, créatifs, et surtout efficasse. Un grand merci à tous les deux.

Familjen, STOCKHOLM

Vi köpte i september 2013 ett hus i Collioure. Huset var till salu hos Agence Paradise Collioure International Real Estate och försäljningen sköttes av Christophe . Eftersom det var första gången vi köpte ett hus utomlands så var det bitvis spännande men vi fick ett mycket bra stöd av Christophe genom hela köpeprocessen som tog flera månader pga. den trygga men långsamma franska byråkratin. Efter att köpet var klart har vi fått en mycket bra hjälp av Christophe, som för övrigt pratar bra engelska, med alla praktiska frågor. Han hjälper gärna till med allt och det han inte vet tar han reda på direkt. Han har hjälpt oss med bankkontakter, med försäkringsbolag, med avtal för el och vatten. Han ordnade fast bredband och Internet där han själv hjälpte oss praktiskt att få igång allting. Då vi har köpt ett renoveringsobjekt har vi också fått hjälp att hitta bra elektriker och en arkitekt. I somras fick vi en vattenläcka och då ordnade han en rörmokare på två timmar. Han hjälper till att ordna boendeparkering, hyra  lastbilar m.m. När vi får svårförståeliga brev från skattemyndigheter, försäkringsbolag och annat så skickar vi ett mail till honom och direkt får vi en förklaring på engelska tillbaka. Förutom att Christophe  var en duktig och pålitlig mäklare så är han den hjälp du behöver som husägare i Frankrike. Vi är för övrigt mycket nöjda med vårt hus och staden Collioure som är pärlan på kusten och i charm jämförbar med Visby.


Ann Don Glasgow Scotland

The staff at Agence Paradise Collioure International Real Estate are delightful to do business with. When I contacted Christophe he put me entirely at ease. Taking the time to collect us from our hotel and then patiently showing us around a variety of properties. My French is not bad, however, Christophe's excellent language skills were greatly appreciated. His English is perfect! We found the perfect property for us in St Cyprien. Christophe helped with the legal side of everything and was there for the special key handover. Then afterwards he has been there as a friend to help us with a whole variety of questions. A very professional team with a special heart.

Agence Paradise Collioure , nous avons trouvé dans votre agence une grande disponibilité pour nous trouver un pied à terre à Collioure. Nos souhaits ont été très bien pris en compte. Merci pour votre professionnalisme et votre honnêteté. A bientôt.


Christopher Davy - COLLIOURE - FRANCE

I have used Neil and Christophe to buy and sell 5 or 6 properties in Collioure. Apart from speaking english they know the Collioure market well. As an ex-Country House Estate Agent in Sussex I am quite a fussy and demanding client. The fact that I am still using them and will continue to do so is self-evident as a recommendation. Collioure is a unique property market and I hope that they retain their own website for the properties they are selling rather than mix them up with properties from the other villages which I would find unhelpful as a seller.

Anne-Beate og Odd Wålengen- Åsgårdstrand/Collioure

Vi kjøpte en leilighet i Collioure for snart fire år siden. Kjøpet gikk problemfritt, og Chris hjalp til med alt praktisk som opprettelse av bankkonto og abonnement for strøm, vann og gass. Det viktigste har likevel vært all støtte og hjelp i etterkant, kontakt med håndverkere, skattemyndigheter osv. Chris gir rask og god tilbakemelding på alle spørsmål. Er han ikke tilstede, trår Neil til. De to er uvanlig hjelpsomme, støttende og vennlige, og er en viktig grunn til at vi føler oss trygge ved å ha en eiendom i Frankrike. Vi gir dem våre varmeste anbefalinger
 


Peter & Elizabeth Schloeffel-Adelaide Australia

In 2005 we bought our first property in Collioure from Christophe from Agence Paradise and we were so pleased with his service that we used Agence Paradise, Collioure for two further house transactions. Despite being foreigners, we felt very confident buying our first property in France due to Christophe’s excellent English, his knowledge of the real estate market and his understanding of the French legal requirements for property purchase. Christophe gave us excellent advice on all aspects of the sale and helped us organise a loan. We still maintain contact with Christophe and Neil Hitchen, who are both always willing to help us when we stay in Collioure.


Colin and Elizabeth Cloney- Glasgow-Scotland

Christophe and Neil supported us through the whole buying process and beyond. They were professional and gave 100% at all times. We would highly recommend them. Many thanks Christophe and Neil from Agence Paradise Collioure


Mme VIALA-ORJEBIN- PARIS

Résidente française à l'étranger, l'Agence Paradise a donc effectué en mon nom la vente de mon appartement de Collioure en s'occupant des relations avec la clientèle mais aussi de toutes les formalités administratives et légales de façon parfaite . On peut donc faire toute confiance


Peter and Pauline Mayston-Haverhill, England

A brief note to say how satisfied we were with the service rendered by Christophe at Paradise Collioure International Real Estae, when we were searching for a holiday home in the Languedoc - a few years ago now - and for his help in dealing with subsequent problems as they arose - maintenance matters, dealing with the local tax office and so on! Thanks again!


RICHARD HAVENHAND-ST CYPRIEN 66750

Christophe and Neil from Agence Paradise at Collioure are frankly brilliant. I have known them for many years, during which time they have sold 5 houses for me. I realised pretty early on that it was a waste of time to instruct other agents alongside them, because Paradise Collioure was just too strong. Their office seems to have access to a wide international client base of sensible real buyers, not time wasters. Furthermore, they are both attentive and genuinely interested in a result, always returning calls promptly. I have recommended them to others with confidence, because I know they are good. So, in summary, go straight to Agence Paradise at Collioure and ask for Christophe or Neil and find out for yourself!


Neil Charles-Jones-NEW ZEALAND

We recently bought a Collioure property with the help of Christophe of Agence Paradise. It was a pleasure!! No "pressure" at all, and lots of help...which we badly needed from so far away. Whether translating termite surveys(!!) or pointing us in the direction of helpful bank managers.....nothing was a bother. I would have no hesitation in recommending the small and dedicated team at Agence Collioure.


Dianne Thompson DBE- LONDON - UK

Several years ago, I bought a house in the old town of Collioure. Christophe from Agence Paradise was the agent and was extremely helpful. The deal went through very smoothly. Christophe helped me in all sorts of ways too like finding an architect, some builders, sorting out the utilities and so on. Sadly, several years later, I had an accident which meant I needed to sell the house. Although Christophe always says he won't sell the same house twice, because that could mean it was wrong in the first place, he didn't hesitate to help me . A buyer was quickly found and the matter was concluded professionally and quickly. During this time, I got to known Neil, his colleague well too. If you are looking for a property in that part of the world, I urge you to speak to them first - you won't be sorry!!


 


Mr Hany and Olia Hanna and Olia , London, UK

A note of thanks to Dear Paradise agency in Colluire and in particular to Christophe  for assisting us buying our second home in St Genis des Fontaines. The most appreciated help we got from Christophe Because we found him to be professional, honest and easy to deal with. We were impressed with him highlighting good positive points as well as negative points. This has helped us to make a decision to buy our home which we are so happy with! We wish to confirm that if it is our intention to replace it, we most certainly will come back to Paradise in Collioure agency for assistance and help and particularly to Christophe.


Martha Solsvik-Bergen-NORWAY

After my father passed away we had to sell the family appartment in Argeles-sur-Mer. And we were so lucky to get in touch with Christophe and Neil from Agence Paradice Collioure International Real Estate. Not only did they sell the appartment in Argeles-sur-Mer, but they also helped the family with a lot other questions and issues thoughout the process - which were not directly connected to the sales process, but were difficult to manage from Norway. Do not know how we could have managed without their help - we would have been forced to travel to France many times to sort out different issues. Professional, friendly, reliable, patient, service minded - I can only give Christophe  my VERY best recommandation!! If you are ever looking for an agency in this area, contact Christophe or Neil in Agence Paradice Collioure - you will not regret!!


Nigel Law-Reigate-UNITED KINGDOM

Cannot speak highly enough of Neil at Agence Paradise Collioure. The support in finding the right property, negotiating the right price, navigating the French legal system (not that troublesome), and securing a trouble free access to the property was second to none. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending this Agency

Martin Furseth-Oersta, Norwege

Norsk ektepar i Collioure Vi ønsket å kjøpe leilighet/hus i Syd-Frankrike, og via Norsk Megling ble vi henvist til Christophe Pierrelee i Collioure. Han gav oss full oppmerksomhet fra første stund, kjørte oss rundt til aktuelle steder i området rundt Collioure, og endte opp med å finne en leilighet til oss i selve Collioure, som passet perfekt både til våre ønsker og vårt budsjett. Christophe og Neil har siden vært våre faste kontaktpersoner i Collioure. Når vi er i byen på ferie, pleier vi som regel å besøke kontoret bak den blå fasaden ved Rue de la Democratie, for å slå av en prat, og begge er alltid hyggelige å treffe og ekstremt hjelpsomme. En ev. henvendelse pr telefon eller mail blir alltid besvart prompte, og vår erfaring med Agence Paradise har alltid vært udelt positiv. Vi har også benyttet byrået for å leie leilighet i Collioure, med samme gode resultat. À bientôt à Collioure! Rigmor og Martin


Hilde Birgitte Olsen-Oslo-NORGE

For tre år siden kom jeg ned til Collioure for å kjøpe bolig. Jeg ble møtt av Christophe fra Agency Paradise - som viste seg å være en profesjonell, entusiastisk og dedikert megler med de rette antenner for å forstå sine kunders ønsker og behov. Vi fant derfor raskt en leilighet som har vist seg å være "midt i blinken" for oss. Han geleidet oss trygt og effektivt gjennom kjøpeprosessen og har i tillegg hjulpet oss med alle spørsmål av praktisk og økonomisk art. etter kjøpet. Jeg har aldri opplevd hans like og vil derfor gi ham mine aller beste anbefalinger! Hilde B. Olsen


Fiona-Edimburgh-Ecosse

Paradise found me a beautiful home in Collioure, and Christophe worked very hard to negotiate a deal and to support me through the complexities of the local system. I cannot praise his patience, skill and good humour highly enough - very strongly recommended.


Barthes-Toulouse

L'agence Paradise à Collioure est une agence très professionnelle, qui installe avec ses clients une relation de confiance assez rare dans le milieu. La qualité du service et du conseil client est remarquable avec une excellente connaissance du marché mais aussi des biens mis en vente. Je referais appel à eux si l'occasion se présente à nouveau.

Ann Scott-Epping, England

Christophe & Neil at the Collioure office ( Agence Paradise)  were extremely helpful when I first bought my apartment in the Languedoc region & then later sold it. They made the whole process easy for me & dealt with all the matters apertaining to the property very efficiently & quickly. They were also at hand to offer support when needed. I have heard various horror stories of the problems of buying & selling properties in France & can say that due to their work, I encountered nothing but very good service


Denis et Claire Hautemont 73

PAUL & LISA COLINS - LONDON

Neil & Chris did a fantastic job, we are so happy with our property in Collioure. Thanks Paradise Real Estate


Robert Plone-San Francisco- USA

My partners and I came to Collioure in 2011 in search of a property we could share during our retirement years. We were directed to Neil Hitchen at Agence Paradise and, in retrospect, that was the best recommendation we could have ever received. From the very start, Neil displayed a combination of honesty, sagacity, and good humor that eased any concerns about the steps we were taking. With our needs thoroughly understood, he led us through five properties, pointing out their respective advantages and disadvantages. We used all this knowledge to make a sound decision, with which we were and are completely satisfied. What's more, Neil has been generous with his time and expertise to aid us in solving various problems --- both property- and non-property-related --- we have faced during our visits. He has even come to our aid, via Internet, when we're in the U.S.! We can and do unhesitatingly recommend Neil Hitchen and Agence Paradise Collioure International Real Estate.


Donald Clark Inveraray Scotland

I first dealt with Neil & Christophe from Agence Paradise 8 years ago selling my original house in Faubourg, Collioure and have had several transactions since and I found their agency to be professional and most importantly have the best contacts and networking for buying and selling property. They have assisted greatly in my latest project sourcing an excellent architect and builders for my new house.


Jan Emard , Marianne Sternevik Sverige

Marianne och jag är mycket nöjda med vad Paradise i Collioure gjort för oss.

Vi kan verkligen rekommendera dem .
