"We would like to thank Kim and Nigel Cowles for selling our house at Les Forges in the Poitou-Charente region. We are so grateful to them for persevering and working so hard during difficult times for selling houses in France.

They always seemed to have a regular flow of viewings by potential purchasers. They were pleasant to deal with, managed everything very efficiently, and kept us reassuringly well informed throughout the whole process, even on the final completion and handover date, when we were not able to be present because of a family wedding."

After placing my property on the market with Richard and Nikki, I received and accepted an offer of purchase within 2 months.

The photos Richard took were of very high quality and well presented on the web site.

The whole process from mandate of sale to completion was managed with efficiency and professionalism and yet it never lost that personal touch which is so important for both vendor and purchaser alike.

I would recommend their services, without reservation, to any potential client.

We would like to thank Richard for all his help during our purchase of a property near Marval.  It is due to his negotiation skills during a tricky time that we succeeded in realising our dream.  Richard was here to welcome us after a long drive down from the UK and made sure everything was ok after the house had been closed up for a couple of months.  He has been able to put us in touch with local contractors and generally helped us to settle in.  Thank you!

As a business professional having moved to France, my wife and I were delighted to be recommended and be acquainted with Peter and Bridget Elias of Allez-Français in Corrèze. Upon signing the mandat to sell our house, I was immediately impressed and incredibly delighted with the decision to work in partnership with them. I have found them to possess very strong communication skills when corresponding with my wife and I regarding the marketing of our property. During each period of viewings, through from initial appointment making to prompt feedback and offer stage, they have shown consistency and continuity in their approach to their work at all times. I have embraced the honesty and openness in all of our dealings and would wholeheartedly recommend their service to any serious vendor or purchaser. Keep up the great work and don’t change anything, you are both a credit to the region! Mr C & Mrs A Kiff

Richard and Nikki at Allez Francais guided us professionally through all the stages of our home purchase in France, responding comprehensively to all our queries and offered invaluable advice on the property and its location, recommended without reservation!

Sam and Donna Oliver

Having looked for many months trying to find our French home, we eventually found it on the Allez-Français website. Richard and Nikki made it very easy to go through the purchasing process and helped us at every turn. They both went out of their way to ensure that everything was covered and that the purchase went through without any problems. We would like to thank them both for their time  and service, they are extremely nice people and we would recommend their website and services to all who wish to sell or purchase their property. Thank you both

We just wanted to say how Tony & I appreciated your excellent service, a rare thing in France! Your approach was professional, friendly and efficient and more importantly, achieved a sale! Your communications were excellent throughout the process and we felt relaxed in letting you deal with all matters. A big thank you to you & Bridget and we shall certainly recommend your services. Ann & Tony McGrane


Catherine and I wanted to send you an email to thank you for your services and assistance with our recent apartment sale. From the outset you were easily contactable, quick to respond, clear in your advice, helpful and crucially extremely pleasant to deal with. I would and will recommend you to anyone I know who is selling, or wants to buy, property in France. We wish you all the best with the continued success of your business and thank you once again for your services. JC

From the first e-mail contact with Kim and Nigel, to meeting them face to face, to the signing of the papers for the house purchase and beyond, Kim and Nigel were thoroughly professional and at the same time very personable and honest (we felt).  We couldn't have asked for a smoother process, a good day viewing many properties which included 'the one' followed by expert communication which kept us very informed of the buying process and the stage we were at.  They made us feel that if we have any problem in the future they will be more than happy to assist. Thank you Kim and Nigel.   Neil and Sally.

In May we contacted Richard Morford at Allez-Francais in regards to buying a house in Nontron, Dordogne. We can't thank him enough for all the help he gave us throughout the process, often acting as an intermediary between us and the vendor when there were any minor concerns. Everything was conducted in a seamless way, so stress free. We would highly recommend Richard and Allez-Francais to anyone seeking either a permanent or holiday home in the Dordogne. Carole-Ann and Rob Pill


Living in New Zealand posed some obvious challenges to buying a property in the Perigort Vert. Once we had the great good fortune to engage with Richard Morford, the process became a genuine pleasure. Richard quickly understood what type of property we were looking for and provided us with instructive profiles and photos of potential properties. He is warmly enthusiastic, professional and insightful. We narrowed our search down to about six properties before coming over to France for viewing. Working closely with Richard, we were thrilled to find and proceed to buy a marvellous property that he had earlier identified for us. Both my wife and I cannot endorse more highly Richard's expertise, in particular his commitment to finding the best possible property fit for clients, keeping us well informed on so many questions along the way and his overall fluent ability to make the whole purchase process as enjoyable as we'd hoped it could be. Nick & Angela


Cher Peter, Je viens de m'installer dans la propriété que vous m'avez vendue dans la région du lot et je tiens à vous remercier pour la qualité de vos services, l'accueil que vous m'avez réservé et votre gentillesse. Je suis ravie de cette acquisition. Avec mes meilleures salutations, Cécile


Thank you so very much for doing this for us Richard. The photographs are absolutely fantastic, you are a star. You have worked so hard this afternoon to get our property live so quickly................it is exactly the boost that we needed and we are sure that you will be joining us in cracking open a bottle of champagne shortly. Many thanks again, Robert


Hi Richard, Just arrived back in the Uk. We would like to thank you so much for all your help, very much appreciated all round and we could not have done it without your's Anthony and Jans help and the Notaire was brilliant as you predicted.

What could have been a stressful week turned out to be a brilliant experience for us and we are plotting how soon we can get back. Best regards. Thanks again.  Lynne and Keith


Nous avons été impressionnés par le professionnalisme de Peter et Bridget Elias ainsi que leur connaissance du marché local. Toujours à notre écoute, ils nous ont assistés durant toutes les étapes de la transaction. Nous n'hésiterons pas à les recommander pour l'achat ou la vente d'un bien immobilier. Liz et Alex Antill
