Testimonials

I just wanted to express my gratitude to you and Matt for the professional and efficient service Mountain Base provided with the sale of my apartment in Les Houches. My concerns that that as a high end agency, you might not be as enthusiastic to sell my modest apartment as you would a multi million euro chalet, proved unfounded. My apartment got the same premium treatment in its marketing with an impressive web brochure. The result of a sale in 10 days from launch was impressive, especially as most of the locals said it would take a year to sell!  You handled the negotiations  through to completion well and it is reassuring to have native speaking professionals on side to navigate the Byzantine bureaucracy of French property sales. Well done and thanks again.

As an Englishman selling a property in central Chamonix, I'm not sure I could have done better than engage the services of Mountain Base.  Their association with Knight Frank, the international property giant, ensured I got global marketing coverage.  Not only did MB recommend a marketing price higher than that of any other local agent, it managed to achieve a sale very quickly at the full price.  MB also recommended my use of a local notaire with a resident English assistant to walk me through the peculiarities of the French legal system and this move proved invaluable for my later understanding of what was happening. I was also very impressed with the comprehensive and patient way that MB explained the local sales process as well as their responsiveness to subsequent queries.  In a nutshell, I can confirm that it's very reassuring to have them in your corner when going through a sales exercise.. Thank you.

Mountain Base have been patient, professional and extremely helpful to us whilst purchasing our apartment. We have probably taken the best part of two years to make our decision but Mountain Base have been supportive all along. They have presented properties that were spot on with our requirements and, once we had selected one, helped us through the entire process from start to finish. It has always been a great comfort to us knowing that people we trust have been working on our behalf whilst we have been remote. The fact that our purchase has been smooth and stress free is due in no small part to their efforts. Thank you.

Mountain Base have sold 2 properties for me in the last 6 months, above all the other agents in the valley I have found them to be professional, punctual and pro-active. They matched suitable buyers with each property and gave me regular updates on viewing numbers and market activity. Mountain Base have a great understanding of the buying process in France which made the completion of the sales as painless as it could ever be. I can highly recommended them and will definitely work with them again in the future.

We couldn't recommend the team at Mountain-Base highly enough. Buying a property abroad has many challenges, but Andy supported the purchase of our apartment with great professionalism, commitment and personal care throughout. The combination of being an English-speaking agent with having an in-depth local knowledge made communication very effective from a distance, and this really helped smooth the process through to its conclusion. We would have no hesitation in using Mountain-Base again.

A very satisfactory result - I am so impressed with the sale and ease of the whole process. It could not have been made easier for me, so I am very grateful for your service, which has been fantastic. If i'm ever back in this market, i'll let you know! But huge thanks to you and your team.

We bought a house in Les Houches in June 2012 with Mountain Base as estate agency. The Mountain Base Team gave us a great help supporting with reliable advice through the entire process from the choice of the property to the transaction. They have been really professional, friendly and helpful at all times.

We first came across Mountain Base a few years ago when we decided to buy a property in Chamonix. Andy & Matt not only helped us find the ideal property, but also guided us very ably and patiently through the whole purchasing process. Since then, we have used all Mountain Base's services - buying, selling, rental - and we wouldn't think of using anyone else.

We sold 2 apartments last year in Chamonix. We used Mountain base as our agent to sell both properties. We chose Mountain base because they seemed very proactive and motivated to find a suitable buyer and also offered very strong marketing using a number of channels.  We were not disappointed. They managed to sell both our apartments within a very short period of time during a tough financial climate. Both properties sold very close to asking price.  We found them very service minded offering us helpful advise throughout the whole process.  We wouldn't hesitate to use their services again and couldn't recommend them highly enough.
