Our team

FullSizeRender2Professional Buyer’s agents

After developing years of experience in French real estate, Sara and François realized the growing need for specialized consulting in real estate buy-side acquisition mandates. Together they founded Buying-in-France in 2013 which offers a full-range of services for potential buyers of property in France. Sara is American, a graduate of University of California, Berkeley, and has worked in real estate for over a decade. She has been involved in the relocation of expatriates for many years and manages mainly the property search aspect of Buying-in-France. François is French, a graduate of University of Paris, has a background in finance and law, and has the required certification and insurance to be an authorized French buyer’s agent, with the experience and knowledge to assist you with all the legal steps of the acquisition process.

We work exclusively for our buyers and will search the entire market for properties that correspond to the home you are looking for.

We operate independently of any real estate agency or property owner.  We do not receive any commission directly from any estate agency or property owner. Our mission is to provide you unbiased advice in finding the best properties at the best price.

We work with a network of property finders in many regions.
