Our clients

Who do we work for?

Contrary to popular assumption, over 80% of our clients are French, most of whom are often already residents of the city, others are sometimes looking to repatriate back to France from elsewhere. Most search services that do work with English speaking clients only serve these international clients. Flat Hunter® is different: we were a French company from the start. Our French clients know the complex market they face; they also know our reputation, connections and expertise; and are willing to pay for a search that they presumably could do on their own. But they also realize that good properties go quickly, without always being advertised to the public, and that missing out on the right one can be a costly mistake.

Our non-French clients come from every corner of the world: the US, the UK, Spain, Germany, South Africa, Indonesia, and the list goes on. Looking to Flat Hunter® for guidance through the unfamiliar, French property market and purchase process, they tend to be sophisticated buyers looking primarily for investment: a property with Paris charm, good value, good rental potential, a solid capital gains return, and often at least some opportunity for personal use.



Most of our clients have a budget of at least 300,000 Euros—the current minimum for a well-situated one-bedroom apartment in the city. In the surrounding suburbs we work with a range of properties, from fixer-uppers to a second home. Through a proper analysis of budget and objectives, we help to focus each client’s search down to the right property and location to meet their needs. Flat Hunter® is the perfect partner to help navigate through the unfamiliar customs and legal procedures ¬ (not to mention language barriers!) ¬that are a significant challenge to a foreign buyer.

We are proud to say that over 50% of our clients come to us on the recommendation of a past client. Others simply knock on our door after hearing about us in the news. We work for both individual clients and companies looking to buy property for their own use or investment purposes. All are treated to international standards of customer service and Flat Hunter®’s knowledge and expertise in the market, which are second to none.

Whether you are frustrated by your experience to date, living abroad or just thinking about a Paris property purchase, please tell us about your search details and we will be in touch to discuss your needs.

"Dear Christine and team,

I just wanted to thank you for all of your help with my purchase in Le Marais. While I expected the process to be complicated, it was more frustrating than I ever imagined (there were multiple times I thought I was going to lose my mind) but you all did a great job of steering me through it. I would highly recommend you to anyone who asks. Once the renovations are complete, I will have to have you come by to see the apartment.

Bon weekend,

Boston, MA, USA"

Purchase of 2 bedroom apartment in 4th arrondissement, July 2012

"Although we were familiar with Paris having lived there for 4 years, we knew that it would be vitually impossible to find and buy an apartment in Paris during one of our short trips over there without some serious assistance. Flat Hunter offered a service which was exactly what we were looking for - from chasing up real estate agents in order to set up viewing appointments to providing recommendations for a notaire, a French mortgage broker and even a builder whom we used to refurbish the property (...)

In summary, without the sevices of Flat Hunter we believe it would have been impossible to find so efficiently and quickly such an an apartment in the area of our choice - Flat Hunter took away all of the frustration of searching and the setting up of the viewings , and helped to avoid any potential communication problems and misunderstandings in terms of the language. Through them, the buying process couldn`t have run any more smoothly and we really valued the way they oversaw the process - right through to the final signing and even beyond to the beginning of the re-furbishment stage.

We would strongly recommend Flat Hunters services to any potential buyer as the easiest way to buy a property in Paris."

Thank you email to our International Division,

"This proved to be an efficient and effective way of being exposed to potential properties and enabled us to view a good volume of apartments and thereby come to a considered view on value and what would actually work for us. We found this invaluable as it became apparent that what we had idealised and what would be possible were different in reality."

Thank you email to our International Division,

"We are currently going through the purchase of our apartment. Flathunter were very helpful during the initial negotiation phase in ensuring that the documentation and process were appropriately adhered to, giving us confidence that our concerns were being looked after."

Thank you email to our International Division,

"At all times the team was accessible to us and we were secure in the knowledge that they were representing us and our interests well."

Excerpt from a thank you email

"Since returning to Australia they have continued to support and provide contacts for us as necessary which is an essential follow up service once you have left the country. Again this gives us the assurance that the whole process is progressing well."

Excerpt from a thank you email

"We would recommend that Flathunter is an excellent service and will deliver you an excellent outcome. Happy home hunting."
