Luxury Ski Property for Sale in France and Switzerland - Testimonials
“Andrew provided us with an excellent service. I truly believe he opened doors and opportunities we would otherwise have been unable to access. He had no hidden agenda – unlike the property developers, estate agents and property owners we met. He was totally unbiased and genuinely had our best interests at heart.
He was a knowledgeable and informed specialist and professional at all times. In every way he knew what he was doing from the properties he showed us to negotiating on our behalf.
He was always available whenever we have phoned him and 100% on the job at all times, be it Sunday morning or Friday night.
One might think one could do without an Andrew but one would be quite wrong. He not only opened doors but he was there to hold them open. I would say his service is priceless.”
“I wanted to buy a place in Verbier for many years, but I had experienced a few problems. The Swiss laws on foreign ownership reduced my options, the Verbier estate agents didn’t take me seriously and it seemed that there was nothing for sale or everything was sold without officially going on the market – the last alone made me feel I could be taken to the cleaners on price. The language barrier, culture and pace of how the Swiss do business also made it difficult.
Within two weeks of contacting Alpine Specialist we flew out and viewed a variety of properties. Andrew Maude knew the village like the back of his hand, was familiar with many locals and estate agents and his French is fluent. Totally unbiased and keen to show me a full variety of properties, he would constructively highlight the disadvantages with each property.
I dread to think of how complicated and stressful the months after the sale would have been without Andrew’s assistance. He project managed everything, sorting out the legals, local planning issues, neighbours, builders, electricians, new bathrooms and soft furnishings and gave us frequent progress reports. This finer detail was a huge assistance. We could not have been any more delighted with his service."
“If buying in the Alps is your wish, then no one can be more highly recommended than Andrew Maude of
When posing the question where in Switzerland would be best for me, he advised Verbier. I took this advice, went there, loved the place and bought a luxury apartment off plan.
He then arranged everything from lawyers to bankers, interior designers to furnishings. The negotiations for
my Permit B were concluded without fuss and in a very short space of time. Nothing was too much trouble. Attention to detail is his forte.
He saved me time and money and when for personal reasons I was unable to complete my move to Verbier, the property was sold with a handsome profit. I doubt you will find anyone more qualified.”
