On a recent consultation with clients wanting to purchase a property in France, I was told that they found the online forums about the subject full of naysayers, complainers and conflicting information. It’s tough to know what to believe.
No joke; it’s true. I am not pointing any fingers, but just imagine the kind of people who might be on those forums? These are people who have free time to be actively posting, who want answers but prefer not to pay professionals or who want to show off how smart they are. This isn’t true for everyone, of course, but it’s true for many and it’s why we don’t recommend depending on the forums to get you through the process of moving to France.
I believe instead that it pays to get professional advice. From an early age I learned that there were three key and important people in your life: your doctor, your lawyer and your accountant. Maybe this is just Jewish “teachings” because so many Jews end up in these professions*, but entrepreneurial advisors will give you the same list, adding to it an insurance advisor and banker. I concur.
* It’s really true, too. According to COMPREHENSIVE PSYCHOLOGY, 2014, Volume 3, Article 8 by Donald I. Templer and Kimberly Tangen 2014: “There is a large overrepresentation of Jews in the professions, with an achievement quotient of 5.8 for psychiatrists, 4.0 for dentists, 3.8 for mathematicians, 3.7 for doctors, 3.4 for writers, 3.3 for lawyers, and 1.7 for architects. There is a disproportionate number of Jews on elite university faculties with an achievement quotient of 13.3 for law, 12.6 for sociology, 10.4 for economics, 9.6 for physics, 8.9 for political science, 8.1 for history, 7.4 for philosophy, and 7.4 for mathematics.” (Source)
As a result of my upbringing, surrounded by people who not only believed in professional advice, but also who gave it for a living, I set out in my own business to be that kind of professional and to provide professional resources on which our clients could depend. It starts with my own needs and how those professionals would stack up to fix my personal issues. If they didn’t do a great job for me, then I certainly couldn’t recommend them to our clients or readers.
So, what you get from us is who we know will do the best job…proven by our own experience.
We launched a new website about one year ago that took five years and three different teams to create and perfect. Page after page is filled with our trusted resource partners…made available not only to our consultation clients, but to you, our readers and anyone who happens on to the site.
Or a good currency broker?
Want to renovate or decorate?
Want to meet people and make new friends?
Meanwhile, if you consult with me first (which is the best way to start and get put in the right direction), I’ll provide it all!
You don’t need to go any further. It’s the equivalent of “one-stop shopping.” And if I don’t have the answers, I know who does.
Don’t try to do it on your own. It’s not worth the risk of making expensive mistakes. Visit our site and have fun clicking around while finding the answers to your prayers…and more!
A la prochaine…
