OUR STORY &
When I created Géranium Immobilier in 2009 I wanted to bring to the French Alps a radically new form of estate agency. At the time there were no bilingual dynamic high street agents in the Morzine valley and I am very proud to have been the driving force behind the dramatic change in estate agency that has truly opened the valley up to the international property market it is today.
At the time, web site agencies were in their infancy and social media as a marketing tool did not exist, but as we enter the 4th industrial revolution and the challenges that global politics forces upon on us, all industries are facing change and estate agency is no exception.
Géranium has an incredible reputation in the Morzine area for the exceptional service we provide and so at the forefront of our changing world my business partner Caroline and I have created a new sub brand to compliment our traditional estate agency offering and we have called it Géranium Consultants.
Géranium Consultants is a range of à la carte property services and advice that landlords, vendors and buyers can buy via our ecommerce site enabling them complete flexibility to handle the rental, sale and management of their property themselves only calling on the help of an experienced agent when needed.
Gone are the restrictive contracts "Mandat de Vente" and the commission fees, but instead landlords, vendors and buyers can call on our experience and knowledge when they need it. From professional quality property details and photos to advice post sales or relocation services, clients can cherry pick the solutions they need depending on their own skill set and backgrounds.
By not signing the traditional Mandat de Vente with clients, we are not bound by the restrictive laws of the Loi Hoguet that was created in 1970 and that we feel is now out dated for most estate agent clients and businesses. But like any industry bound by rules and regulations when working with us as consultants this does mean that we cannot, at any time act as an intermediary between the buyer and seller so we cannot reply to enquires or negotiate for either party. If you need these services then we recommend you use our traditional estate agency services Géranium Transaction at www.geranium74.com.
If you do decide to break new ground with us and pioneer this new approach we are with you every step of the way offering coaching and advice when you have a buyer via our Viewing and Negotiation Coaching sessions to help you secure the best deal for your sale or purchase and then you can continue to cherry pick our services as your sale progresses.
We are very excited about this brand new offering to the Alpine property market and we are very proud to once again be the driving force behind estate agency in the Alps.
