Paris, France (January 25, 2018) – A new luxury real estate service is now available in France that saves precious time to a fast-growing segment: the ultra-wealthy.

Olivier Bourrain, owner of the eponymous company, said: “I am proud to be the first French agent to offer a personalized property search and acquisition service to clients who want to buy the crème de la crème in France but live abroad and don’t have time for property hunting. My job is to put my clients in the driver’s seat when they land in France.”

Before their viewing trip to France, select buyers contract Bourrain out to find and shortlist properties that match their high-end needs, lifestyle and budget. During their stay, he schedules viewings with different sellers. After the viewings, he helps his clients secure the property of their choice in a smooth and efficient manner. “The service is risk-free as my fees are charged to the buyer only at the end of the purchasing procedure,” says the French native.

Bourrain’s main objective is that his time-lacking clients find their dream property during their first trip to France. Having the best properties curated from first-rate sellers and benefiting from quality advice is not only an exclusive service; it also cuts the overall cost of searching and acquiring a property overseas.

Properties in France’s prime locations (Paris, Côte d’Azur, The Alps) have always attracted attention from all over the world because of the country’s unique art de vivre. And since 2017, the French luxury real estate market has been literally thriving.

Bourrain built a vast network of qualified international buyers (incl. Forbes billionaires, UHNWI, real estate investors) as he informed each of them directly and personally about the listing of a $100 million-plus trophy property.

“For overseas buyers, identifying and viewing properties listed by many different estate agencies is a time-consuming process, and buying the right one can be frustrating too. In addition, there are countless listing agents in France, and 99.9% of them represent the seller. I for one represent the buyers exclusively, and always act in my clients’ best interests. I am independent. So, mutual trust is of the essence,” states Bourrain.

Bourrain also nurtures a circle of power agents in luxury real estate hubs such as London, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Hong Kong and Singapore to benefit from client referrals.
