Olivier Bourrain

Exclusive buyer’s rep

“I focus on one thing above all others: you, the buyer. I deliver the lifestyle you want.”

I am a French licensed real estate professional who only acts for buyers. In other words, I do not represent sellers and do not sell properties.

I provide personalized real estate services to overseas clients who want to acquire a high-end property in France.

My main activity is to identify the right property in the best area and help my clients secure it at the best-possible price in the minimum amount of time and hassle.


The purpose of my business is to help my clients buy the very best, and my commitment is to serve them with discretion, integrity and efficiency.

My motto is simple: “Make money buying a home, not selling one!

I grow my boutique business mostly from referrals. So, it is essential that I delight you to the point that you will then spontaneously refer my services to your family and friends.

International experience

Born and raised in France, I earned my MBA from Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA, USA. I then decided to plant my roots in Europe where I started working for a software company in Lyon, France and an IT hardware company in London, United Kingdom.

At the age of 29, I crossed the North Sea to The Hague and co-founded a telecom company in the Netherlands. During successful 17 years of entrepreneurship, I became passionate about prestige properties, architecture and interior design. Turning 46 and itching to put my money where my mouth was, I zeroed in on France aiming at becoming a successful exclusive buyer’ agent in the luxury housing market. Today, I travel extensively, sharing my time between my Dutch base and France’s prime locations.

I have traveled to more than 50 countries and love to spend time in high-end hotels with unique architecture and breath-taking interior design.

Affluent clientele

I have an excellent understanding of the needs and wants of the international ultra-high-net-worth clientele. My passion for travel and my experiences living in various countries have guided my ability to connect and communicate with a wide range of affluent clients: successful entrepreneurs, captains of industries, c-level execs, hedge fund managers, asset managers, wealth managers…

Local expertise, global network

Holder of a French real estate license, I exert a good knowledge of the luxury housing market. I am able to target the most unique properties’ searches in record time, having access to most of the listings in the prime areas of France. My Rolodex is the ‘Who’s Who’ of the global luxury real estate business. Personable and professional, I have built relationships with several real estate agents in France and around the world. I can also recommend prominent professionals in the legal, financial and fiscal fields as trusted resource for answers during the buying process.

Peace of mind

If you need a real estate professional who can devote his time and efforts to making your “French property ownership” dream come true , then look no further and contact me. I’d be honored to accompany and represent you throughout the search and acquisition process.
