Buying Alpine Property

Jo

"Welcome to my world of alpine meadows and pristine ski pistes. I once had a dream just like you...to open my shutters each morning and just breath, to soak in the views and to throw my arms in the air and feel the magnificent presence of the mountains.I remember that dream so well, how precious it is, and that is why I hold your alpine dream in my heart as if it was my own."

Joanna MacGovern, Founder of Géranium

 

Our four step approach is simple: 

Listen to your requirements

  • Following your initial contact we  be in touch to understand your property search in detail
  • we can chat via email, face-to-face or via Skye/FaceTime for a full brief 

Property Search

  • we will then send you a short list of properties that we currently have available including floorplans, detailed location and frequently a 360°tour
  • we will then answer any questions you have in detail or provide further photos or information about the properties that interest you
  • we will together finalise your shortlist and arrange your viewing trip 
  • together we will view the properties you have chosen

Negotiation 

  • once a property has been selected we will negotiate on your behalf to secure you the best possible deal

Follow up and advice 

  • we will then advise you on all aspects of the purchase from securing the right legal advice, help with securing finance, assistance with any further research, assistance with foreign exchange advice, organising insurance, setting up utilities, opening bank accounts 
  • we will ensure all parties move towards completion as quickly and as professionally as possible for you 
  • our fees are generally payable by the vendor at the end of the process so our service is completely free to you

 

Here are some kind words our Alpine dreamers say about us...

"All the team at Geranium contributed towards my house purchase and all were very friendly and helpful. Great communication and quick answers to my questions. They were incredibly accommodating with my many demands to visit the property with workmen which meant we were able to start renovation at 08.00 the day after we signed and were given the keys. A real pleasure to deal with start to finish and highly recommended."

Roland, Le Biot, May 2017

"Thank you Jo and Caroline for all your help over the last few months. Nothing was too much trouble and we could not have done it with out you! We would highly recommend using Geranium and would definitely use you again! However, no plans for a long time as we love our new house in the mountains. 

Thanks again for everything! "

Katie & Simon, Seytroux, May 2017
