Estate agent’s charges are unrestricted in France. The sale of a property can be handled by several estate agents. As a result of this ... price differences in the estate agent’s charges can occur.

We work together in close cooperation with selected estate agents who calculate a reasonable commission (4% to 6%) for the agreed selling price.

A sound reason to start your house hunting with us!

The mentioned asking prices on this site are all including the estate agent’s charge (Frais d’Agence Inclus).

No additional costs will be charged (in contrast with some estate agents who offer their properties with an exclusive asking price).

Enquire us in advance about the percentage that we charge for our commission to prevent unexpected surprises.



Buying a second home in France seemed daunting until we met Ruud Pater. Right from the first property viewing Ruud understood what we were looking for and matched us with ideal properties to look at. Even before making the final decision to put in an offer, Ruud worked with the previous owners to find out all the costs involved and even arranged meetings with contractors on our behalf to get estimates of works that would need doing. Ruuds help to this stage gave us the confidence to start the negotiations to purchase.


Once the sale had been agreed, Ruud continued to work with us making necessary arrangements with the Notaires office and helping with the translation and understanding of the legal documentation, making the whole purchase process quicker and easier than we could ever have done ourselves. We are now the proud owners of our French Home and can not thank Ruud enough for his involvement and would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone looking into purchasing a home in France.
