Biggest isn't always best ...



You may have noticed that our agency keeps a steady portfolio of around 250 active properties. That is because we work as 5 teams within our business, and the number of properties that we offer is to maximise our management of these properties, and with the goal of achieving a sale as quickly as possible.

Some agents have as many as 16,000 + properties ……..

We have made a comparison between ourselves and this particular agent, using their own figures :

Sales generated 2015 – 1,251 sales on average of 16,000 properties = 7.7% success ratio
AF Sales generated 2015 – 56 sales on average of 250 properties = 22.4% success ratio

Sometimes biggest isn’t best.

Allez-Français – Award Winners

Our dedicated in-house research team have spent the past 2 months scouring the resources available to them to put together a shortlist of the firms we believe stand out as clear examples of the continent’s crème-de-la-crème, the companies that, through their diligence, innovation and ethics showcase the strengths of the European business world.

Our team put forward Allez-Français as a clear winner and the award itself is yours and freely given for you to use and promote as you see fit.

More success stories with our Exclusives


It is with increasing frequency that we are obtaining sole agency mandats, and then backing that up with a sale. 7 of our last 15 listings have been registered on this basis.

All of our “exclusive” properties are shown here : https://www.allez-francais.com/for-sale/exclusives



Why does this work so well?

An “Exclusive Mandat de Vente” signifies a stronger commitment to work together between the vendor & the estate agent. Because we are guaranteed to receive our fees upon sale, we are inevitably more motivated than ever and we can justify a larger advertising budget to promote the property. This means that we will advertise your property on additional internet property portals and also in selected printed media.

Because the property is only being offered for sale by Allez-Français, it will only ever be advertised for sale at one “fees included” price – and this helps to protect a vendor’s asking price. We have complete control over the complete marketing process enabling us to manage the viewings, buyer expectations and negotiations more effectively.

An exclusive agency agreement does not preclude Allez-Français from working with any other agents that may have a potential buyer - in fact we welcome it if it assists with a sale.
