What are we doing?

We are building a community of quality English speaking French real estate professionals who want to work together and enjoy the opportunity to receive referrals of English speaking real estate clients WITHOUT paying a traditional real estate referral fee.

Members receive coaching to help them enhance their business success.

ESREA France founder writes:

“having worked in real estate in Canada and in France for 12 years in total and growing up in a family of real estate agents  I am passionate about serving people who want the best possible real estate service stress free. I learned after working 5 years in France that it is often challenging to find an English speaking French real estate agent in many parts of France.

So I decided to create ESREA France to help people find a English speaking real estate professional in their area of choice.”

David lives with his family in the south of France.

esrea franceMember William McIntosh writes:
“Joining ESREA France has been a very rewarding experience for me. In exchange for an insignificant monthly fee I  receive great information, training, tips and also the possibility of getting leads for my area without paying a referral fee. ESREA France is a great choice for any English speaking agent wanting to join a professional network of agents they can share leads with. I highly recommend joining ESREA France.”

Important Notes:

Note 1: No agent will have exclusivity for an area because in the interest of fair treatment of each visitor to our site, each visitor will have access to a page with a selection of agents to choose from. We don’t advertise individual agencies by name of the agency only by the agents name.

Note 2: Membership is on an individual agent basis not an agency basis. Each person who wants to be part of our network obtains an individual membership.

We focus on your name on the site (Executive Team Members) and not the name of the agency you own or work in so that people will click to find out more about you and not just be guided by the brand name of an agency. This will help give equal opportunity to all agents who are Executive Team Members.

Single person agencies qualify as one membership and are noted on the site by their personal name.Two agents from the same agency can be separate members because everyone works differently and the potential buyer or seller may prefer one person over another because of their professional approach not because of the agency.

In addition, the agents are highlighted on our site with their individual name to give both equal opportunity of having their name clicked on. Each agent pays his or her own fees, if applicable.  Contact us with any questions.

There is no contract so you can cancel any time any or all of the locations you have selected. We just need 30 days notice to make sure billing is updated.

Note 3: We reserve the right to remove agents from the network (paid members and non-paying members) when we receive complaints about poor quality service or service that is not inline with our membership guidelines (see above) Failure to respond to email or phone calls from ourselves when we look for updates about clients referred directly can be a reason to be removed from the network for future business.

Note 4: Just like you can end your advertising agreement with us anytime, we retain the same right to end our agreement or amend the agreement by giving the equivalent 30 days notice to you for any reason.

Note 5: When there is more than one agent specializing in a town we regularly re-order the names of the agents on a page to give all agents an equal chance of the visitor clicking over to their site.

Note 6: Our Executive Team Membership fee is currently only payable via PayPal’s recurring billing system and only payable on a monthly basis There is no contract, you can cancel your membership anytime 30 days in advance. (We need a bit of time to make sure the billing is cancelled). Note: Once the monthly fee is paid it is not refundable for that month.

Note 7: Your business website must have a section in English or you will need to take a membership that includes a personal webpage on our site so visitors can see details about you in English.

Note 8:  Paris has 20 arrondissements and one link from an arrondisement is treated as if it was a link from an individual city or town in France.

Note 9: When we receive a request from a client to be placed in contact with an agent for a certain area and there are more than one agent on our site for the said area we will introduce the client to all the agents for that area. Then the client decides who they wish to work with. is a secure payment system so you can pay by your credit card. We do not accept payment by cheques or cash. Our billing is only done on a monthly cycle. 

Please contact us with any questions and note changes are made without notice so make sure you keep up to date.
