They might be smiley and friendly, but they exclusively protect and work for sellers.

Our mission, supporting & protecting foreign buyers
A word from Samir Grattery, founder
“Graduating in 2013 in French property law from Sorbonne University, Paris, I have always noticed that foreign buyers with overseas property projects in Dordogne were left to face a huge number of issues on their own.
They were often beaten to great opportunities by locals due to living abroad, lacking specific market knowledge, not understanding the complex laws that apply and not speaking French fluently.
Considering that an estate agent, who only works to protect private sellers, was the only spokesperson foreign buyers had throughout the completion of their project, they had no support on their side resulting in costly mistakes being made.
That’s why, in 2015, I set up Dordogne Property Connection as the first line of support that allows foreign buyers to access a wider range of properties and have the necessary expertise and knowledge on their side to make their purchase in Dordogne completely hassle-free.”
Foreign buyers choose us to avoid costly mistakes
As this was our first real estate investment in France and had no idea if we could do it all in the right way, we were grateful to have your support from the search for our holiday home through to all the legal steps. We couldn’t have done it without you!
We’re so happy with our new property in Dordogne, and the start-to-finish support you provided us with made us really confident about our purchase. Many headaches saved – thank you.
