What Our Customers Say...

  • We have worked with Carrie both in buying and selling a house and have been very happy with the service received in both cases. She is proactive, responsive and efficient, making the process as smooth as possible. She knows the system well and has a great network of contacts to assist with all steps of the sale process. Carrie is also positive and a pleasure to deal with, with no request too much trouble."Alex & Anton Pakendorf, November 2016
  • From my first contact to completion, Carrie was proactive and knowledgeable about the whole purchase process. She made me feel at ease buying in a country and language unfamiliar to me. What stood Carrie out from other agents I've dealt with was her ancillary knowledge, not just the area, but the unique French legal rules and in my case planning considerations too. Highly recommended, a pleasure to do business with."Dan Foster, October 2016
  • Happily Pastures Greener successfully found a buyer for my hotel, no mean feat during what was a somewhat unstable financial market. The sale was a protracted complicated affair but Carrie clearly understood the French system and never wavered in her positive and well informed approach. Her negotiation skills were put to the test but came up trumps as both parties were highly satisfied with the resulting sale/acquisition. Thank you Carrie for all your help and I wish you continued success in your lovely part of the world."Tracey Spraggs, August 2016
  • Carrie provided a very useful service as we started our search for a property in the Alps. She is well connected and respected throughout the region and though we were looking outside her core area she was able to connect us quickly to suitable properties and agents. So much so, that we found our apartment on our first search. Carrie's expertise in helping us navigate the differences between the French market and our UK expectations proved a powerful combination, helping us quickly reach a decision we are delighted with."Douglas Donaldson & Leona Shepherd, September 2016
  • Carrie has been extremely helpful in the process of buying our apartment in Les Gets. She understood our specific requirements and she would instantly follow up any questions we had. She organised numerous visits for us and her thorough knowledge and her eye for detail was striking. Her relationships with the estate agents is very positive which makes the communication in a language not my mother tongue so much easier. I can thoroughly recommend Carrie for your purchase"Jacobijn Scorer, February 2016
  • Carrie ensured we found the perfect place - she listened to our needs and all her suggestions fitted the bill. Thanks to her we have the ideal chalet that suits our needs for personal use and rental. The whole process of buying was made easier as she accompanied us each step of the way. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."Sara Burdon & Guy Bowden, September 2015
  • Carrie helped us realise our dream of owning a chalet in the mountains. She understood what we were looking for and was quick to let us know when properties became available. Her advice was invaluable throughout the process. She was very attentive to our requests and always speedy in responding to emails and calls. You really felt like you were being treated professionally. If you are looking for a property in the Les Gets/Morzine area, we wouldn't hesitate in recommending Carrie."Jon & Jeanette Mills July 2014
  • A family with three teenage kids, we were looking for a ski place but also somewhere we could spend time in summer. Morzine ticked all our boxes not least because of its closeness to Geneva airport. Anyone who has made the three hour connection from Chambery airport into the three valleys during peak week will know just how hellish that can be! Morzine is a real town rather than a purpose built resort and has a great young feel to it. Carrie at Pastures Greener was just brilliant showing us around potential properties and when it came to guiding us through the process of purchasing she gave consistently good advice and was just a pleasure to deal with. She was always super quick to respond to either text or email contact when we had questions and overall the process felt like you were dealing with a friend. We very much hope to stay in touch with Carrie now that our purchase has completed and we are the proud owners of a fantastic chalet. Bring on the snow!"Nigel & Ruth Dutson, July 2014
  • Carrie's help with our farmhouse purchase was invaluable. She quickly assessed what it was we were looking for in a property -offering business potential but more importantly our home for the future. Once we found the property she negotiated on our behalf and kept us fully informed about what was happening during the buying process. We feel that she has gone way beyond the duties of an estate agent and as a result has made the whole experience less daunting- it can be hard for English home buyers who do not understand the French system. Carrie has also directed us to other support and advice locally that has proved incredibly useful, especially when it came to sorting out utilities. We would highly recommend Carrie as a most friendly, approachable, supportive and knowledgeable estate agent."Chris Brian & Linda Witts, November 2011
  • Dear Carrie, I would like to thank you for all the help and assistance you gave us in the purchase of our ski chalet in Les Gets. From the first point of contact you always phoned or emailed us back very quickly and the list of properties you compiled helped us make our final choice. Your local knowledge relating to the legal system gave us great assistance and reassurance and your ability to speak fluent French is second to none. We had several issues when purchasing our chalet but with your help all were sorted out very quickly so I thank you for that. Janet and I would have no hesitation in recommending Pastures Greener to any prospective buyers, and once again THANK YOU so much."Ian & Janet Howlett, June 2011
  • In 2009 we made an offer to purchase a plot of land in Morzine through Pastures Greener. Carrie helped us find the plot and then to make a sensible offer that reflected the market conditions at the time. As soon as our offer was accepted the difficult bit started i.e. finding an architect & builder and gaining planning permission. Throughout this very long period Carrie remained on hand with excellent advice; assisted greatly in keeping the project alive and provided quality contacts through her extensive network. Without a doubt Carrie was instrumental in getting our project off the ground and without her local expertise and knowledge it would have been a struggle to get it to completion. If you are looking to purchase in the Alps I recommend you start with Carrie at Pastures Greener."Chris & Helen Lavender, Morzine, March 2010
