"Rivard Immobilier" - A Complete Relocation Service for the International Market

Helping you move to a hand-picked property in France's most desirable areas

Rivard Immobilier provides the answer to ex-pats' needs

David Rivard decided to set up Rivard Immobilier and Relocation as a direct result of his own experiences of living abroad. David travelled extensively himself, and on his travels met people of all nationalities who asked him how to go about buying property in France. They wanted more than just a property finding service, they wanted a complete relocation service too. Realising there was a gap in the market that he had the knowledge and contacts to fill, David returned to his native France and set up Rivard Immobilier and Relocation. He aimed to answer the exacting requirements of the people he'd met, and of others like them.

A global network for a global market

The foreign market is very important to France's economy. Many immobiliers deal either just with their local area, having mainly French clients on their books. Others focus on British clients wanting to buy a home in France. But, David Rivard takes a much broader approach. He knows that investing in France is attractive to many nationalities and also to French ex-patriates from all around the world. He knows too, the inherent difficulties in finding and buying property in France when you live thousands of miles away. So, together with Catherine, he set up a far reaching network of partners in places as diverse as Singapore, Dubai, Johannesburg, New York, San Francisco, Brussels, Montreal, Amsterdam, Sydney, Vienna, Rio de Janeiro and London. All are dedicated to helping people invest in prime French property and to relocate to France.

Perfect properties - hand-picked for you

One of the problems inherent in buying property from a long distance is that the client's time for viewing trips can be too easily wasted. So, David Rivard pays extra attention to the details of his clients' requirements to ensure that every property he proposes is an excellent match. He likes to speak to clients himself, over the telephone, and then sends out a complete file for each property. If he doesn't have your dream property on his books at the time, he will use his extensive network of contacts to find it for you. So, when you make that all important viewing trip, you know you won't be wasting your time.

Desirable properties in sought after regions

Rivard Immobilier and Relocation specialises in exceptional properties in the most desirable regions of France. Paris, Anjou, Touraine, Provence, Midi-Pyrénées and the Dordogne have proved to be the most sought after areas. So, David makes sure he covers all of these through his expert network. He still likes to see every property personally though, to be sure that he never compromises his reputation for quality. The agency deals with many different types of property, mainly at the high end of the market. Old stone houses, restored farms, chateaux and even luxurious apartments can be found on their books.

A great time to buy

The property market in France has changed in recent years, as it has in much of the world. But David believes that French property is now more attractive than ever to savvy buyers. Prices have fallen and beautiful houses offer fantastic value for money.

Flexibility is the recipe for success

Today's market also requires flexibility. "Never say never", is David's watchword for success. As he explains: "You need to be open minded in this business today. For example, I sell and rent properties in specific areas of France that I know very well, and where I have good contacts. So, when I was asked to sell a property in Bourg en Bresse, outside my usual regions, I had to think carefully about the request. The seller was insistent that he wanted me to sell his property, so I decided to take it on. And? I found a buyer from Canada. All it took was the right approach, one client, one visit, and the property was sold."

A complete relocation service

As the company's name suggests, Rivard Immobilier and Relocation offers a complete relocation service. Everything can be arranged for you. Transport, legal work, establishing essential utilities, even finding schools for your children can be arranged. No stone is left unturned, so your relocation to France is pleasurable and easy for you. It brings an invaluable peace of mind, essential when you are relocating from far away.

Advertising with French Property Links gives Rivard Immobilier international exposure

David first came across French Property Links (FPL) when a partner recommended them. He chooses to advertise his properties with FPL because he finds their high profile presence on the internet gives his business international exposure and brings great results. He also likes the easy to use, attractive website and professional service offered by FPL's team.
