Focus on Mark and Louise Sayers
Every week, we hope to do a "focus on" feature about a FAB PO member. This week, we are seeing what Mark and Louise Sayers of Med and Mountain properties are up to :
Focus on Med and Mountain
Med and Mountain (www.medandmountain.com) is a Perpignan-based company specialising in property sales, property searches, translation and language services.
Set up by husband and wife team Mark and Louise Sayers, the company was established to assist non-French speakers to acquire property for sale in the P-O. Both Mark and Louise have degrees in French and have the invaluable experience of moving to France and setting up a home as well as a limited company within the French system. In May, Med and Mountain celebrates its 5th birthday – not bad going for a small business in France!
Mark heads up the property sales side of the business. With 6 years of experience in French real estate he is an expert on all aspects of buying property in France and is the ideal person to guide you through the sale or purchase of your house in France from initial viewings to the final signing. This comprehensive service won’t cost you a penny more than going to a French estate agent. What’s more, Mark is not your typical agent, being both a consummate professional and an honest guy to boot!
Mark has a large portfolio of properties (http://www.medandmountain.com/default.asp_Q_f_E_listings_euro) and has access to many more via a network of 22 agents operating throughout the region. If he doesn’t have what you want, he can find it for you!
In 2008, the company expanded into offering language services and Louise heads up this side of the business offering translation, interpreting and administrative assistance. This was a natural spin off from selling property, as clients who bought houses in the region often needed assistance with getting established in France.
Med and Mountain can help with anything from getting your utilities connected and obtaining quotes from professional and trustworthy workmen, to setting up a business. Louise also offers ad hoc PA services for businesses who need administrative help – this is the perfect solution for small companies to avoid the punishing social security charges involved when hiring staff.
