Just wanted to tell you how much I always look forward to seeing episodes of "House Hunters International" that feature people relocating to stunning Paris, France...and being lucky enough to have YOU as their real estate expert! I know this sounds silly, but when my husband and I watch these shows in which you do your magic finding expats the best housing they can afford, we both say how lucky these folks are, to have you guide them and to have the opportunity to learn from you about this City of Light that you love so much.
You are such a natural in front of the camera, so good-natured and humorous...and very, very patient, too, as it often turns out! My husband will say, "These guys don't have a clue. Good thing they have Adrian to lead 'em around!" True!
Anyway, I hope all those whom you have helped to find their nests in Paradise are deliriously happy, as they should be. I'll bide my time until I see another of the HHI shows with you as the star, and will try and be patient until the time comes that I return to this City of Wonder and Awe.

I just want to say I'm a big fan of House Hunters International and I love when they are in Paris because I know you're going to be the realtor. You're great at your job and enjoyable to watch. I wish my realtor here in Staten Island was half as good as you are! Keep up the good work.
My wife and I have decided that you are our favorite American property consultant in France.
I always watch your episode and can't wait to return. If I am out and miss it, a friend will call me, even if it's three in the morning. I have to watch it.
I love you on HGTV when you are in Paris. My dream is to live there but I doubt I could ever find something "with character" in my meager budget....so I just watch TV and dream...heading back in October of 2013.

Been following you for YEARS dreaming of moving to France...Love your episodes on House Hunters International as well as they keep us focused on where we want to live someday! Thank you so very much on keeping us with a sense of hope, that running away is not bad....C'est une merveilleuse idée!!!
I just wanted to let you know I so enjoy House Hunters International when you are the one who helps people find their home (rent or own), in Paris. I have watched you so many times and like your honesty and upright explanations to the buyers/renters. My husband and I have been to Paris four times now and some of the places you take people to I do recognize.
Hello Adrian, I live in Peyton, Colorado, and I love watching you on House Hunters International. My husband and I want to bring our kids to Europe in two years and are looking for ways to research different areas that we think we may enjoy. Again, we really enjoy watching you and wish you continued success, Kindest regards.
The first time I saw you on House Hunters International was an episode with a widow from Los Angeles who had just gone through cancer and was finally realizing her new life in the City of Light. It was an inspiring episode.
I never thought I'd write a thank you note to a Realtor I've never worked with, but there's a first for everything! I watch every episode of House Hunters International and I have to say, you do a wonderful job for the show. So thank you for showing such wonderful properties and letting me pretend I can be in France again.
I wanted to send you a short note and say how much I enjoy you on HGTV's House Hunters. I just watched the episode about the lady writer and her young daughter. I have seen you on several episodes and I think you're great and I like you!
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy the Parisian segments on House Hunters International. They're made so much more interesting than the usual episodes by your knowledge, wit and screen presence. Since Paris is my favorite city in the world, I especially look forward to those programs.
My boyfriend Rick and I enjoy watching House Hunters International. You are one of the show’s most vibrant and knowledgeable realtors, and the Paris episodes are always my favorite. I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your House Hunters International episodes and how happy I am that I have now found your wonderfully written blog and book as well. Merci!
First of all, I want to tell you how much my wife and I enjoy your segments on House Hunters International. You should have your own show. We saw the episode that aired June 16 and we watched intently as we are starting to plan to look for a place in Paris. We have visited Paris several times and we really like the 7th so we were shocked when the woman in the June 16 episode did not take the apartment in the 7th.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE every time you are on House Hunters International. You have such spunk and a great no nonsense approach with your clients, I just love it!
Luke P. and Lucas M.
Just saw a rerun of one of your Paris house hunters. You were very understated and rational in dealing with your semi-delusional client.
Loved seeing you on House Hunters. I would have chosen #3 as well. The balcony & views were delicious and the neighborhood was quite appealing to me. Still wish I could live in Paris. For now I'm living vicariously through watching you & reading your Parler Paris newsletters. Hope to visit Paris again next year. A la prochaine!
House Hunters International was fab. I'd have gone with # 3 and the balcony, but, hey. Barbara Capitman, the Goddess of Art Deco in South Beach, loved to use the phrase "good bones" - just as you did!
Hello! Wanted to introduce myself - wife, mom, Web designer & Paris lover! I see you all the time on House Hunters International (favorite show) and will one day be calling upon your services to find our Paris flat! Au plaisir de vous voir bientôt!
