"Newton Sud Immo" - A Family Estate Agency with a Winning Formula

Excellent personal contact is a recipe for success

One couple, two countries

Mireille Saussez and Pierre Nyssens, who run Newton Sud Immo, have had many years of experience in the estate agency business. They've been operating in Belgium for fifteen years and in France for eight. As Newton Sud Immo is a small family business covering an area from Belgium down to the far south of France, this experience is a vital asset. Mireille explains that knowing what clients really want is the key, so that no long distance trips to view properties are wasted. Pierre and Mireille also work with colleagues in France. So, they can keep a close eye on what's happening in the property market in the areas they cover.

From Belgium to the sunny south of France

From its base in Belgium, Newton Sud Immo covers an area of France that's about as far away as it could be. It has properties in Provence and the Languedoc, both regions that offer plenty of warm sunshine. Most of Newton Sud Immo's properties are in excellent condition and many have fabulous views. Provence, of course, is well known to property buyers from all over the world. It's got the lot - beautiful properties, glorious coast and countryside and a near perfect climate. Then there's the mediaeval town of Uzes, in the Gard, which has proved a long standing favourite with buyers. And, because Mireille and Pierre's colleagues live and work in these areas, they can offer a complete service that's second to none.

Newton Sud Immo's personal service

Newton Sud Immo has developed a successful formula for its agency over the years. Mireille explains: "Contact with the clients, from the first moment, has to be personal. At Newton Sud Immo, once you make an enquiry we'll make sure you'll always speak to the same agent, no matter how many times you call. That way we get to know you. And, most importantly, we get to know exactly what you want." In fact, Newton Sud Immo's personal service goes even further. The couple and their colleagues will even introduce you to other local ex-pats to help you integrate and to fully enjoy your new life. So you get not just a property but a social life too.

Buying from a distance? No problem!

When you want to find a property in a foreign country, there are all sorts of logistical difficulties. Or, there can be, if you don't have the level of help offered by Newton Sud Immo. Not only will Pierre and Mireille make sure that you are only offered properties that truly match your criteria, they'll arrange accommodation and accompany you to viewings too. You'll be kept fully informed of all developments throughout the buying process. They really smooth the path when you're buying from a distance. And, that's worth its weight in gold.

After sales back up is essential

If you happen to be French and you buy a property in an area you know well, you might not need after sales help. But, if you don't have a full knowledge of the language, the country and its legal systems, chances are you'll find Newton Sud Immo's after sales help invaluable. Non French buyers taking on a renovation project, for example, can struggle to find the best local craftsmen and to cope with the necessary paperwork. But, Pierre, Mireille and their colleagues (who speak French, English, Spanish and Dutch between them!) have a network of trusted professionals to bring on board.

Sold once, sold twice!

Clients who buy through Newton Sud Immo get such a great service that, if the time comes to sell their French home, they return to the people they have confidence in. However much you love your new home, sometimes life dictates that you have to move on. Mireille recounts the story of a client who bought his property through Newton Sud Immo. Having lived in it happily for some years, an unexpected event forced a return to the UK. So, knowing the high level of service he'd received from Mireille and Pierre previously, he returned to them to find a buyer. So Newton Sud Immo sold the same house twice!

Newton Sud Immo reaches the British market through French Property Links

Mireille and Pierre chose to advertise with French Property Links (FPL) in order to find the best possible exposure to the British market. Brits have a well documented longstanding love affair with France, so it's important to reach as many British buyers as possible. Mireille also loves FPL's attractive, easy to use site and the fact that agents can upload as many as ten photos of a property to an advertisement.
