The French Property Finders 2018-01-15T21:17:23+00:00


THE FRENCH PROPERTY FINDERS is a property search agency with partner agents across France and abroad. We are all experienced bilingual buyer’s agents (also known as search agents or home finders). What makes us unique is that we are fully licensed French property professionals, yet do not take on properties for sale. We exclusively represent property buyers. This allows us to avoid conflict of interest and be your unbiased local property expert.

On behalf of our clients we search 100% of the market, including off-market properties and private sales. We share with you our network of tax experts, mortgage providers and dual qualified lawyers, as well as architects, builders, and property managers. In short, we offer clients the Complete Buying Solution.
