Mr & Mrs G Newton, South Charente

“Martin is responsible for the on-going management of repairs and renovation projects at our property, during the last seven years. He has advised and handled numerous internal and external repair works on our behalf, including those to plumbing, waste water, electrical and heating installations, general building works and swimming pool repairs, including the replacement of a defective pool liner.

He has also advised upon and handled improvement works, such as the creation of a new breakfast room, with adjoining utility room
and walk-in larder. Outside, he has advised on landscaping projects and sourced appropriate local materials on our behalf.

Twice, Martin has helped navigate us through the French building insurance system, in each case to a very satisfactory conclusion.  

We would not hesitate to recommend Martin for his outstanding local knowledge and attention to detail but above all, his cost-effective management skills ensure he gets us the best value for our money in this challenging economy.”

Mr & Mrs D Heyward, North Dordogne

“Following the results of his post-purchase survey, we were delighted to appoint him to manage our subsequent renovation project.   

Together, with Martin’s advice and creative solutions, we have taken the ruined shell of a building, requiring major internal,
external and ground works and realised a holiday home to be proud of.   

As we live in the UK, we found the simple on-site updates and photographic evidence of progress that he
sent us on a regular basis, very reassuring.  Working within the limits of our finances, Martin recommended a phased approach to the renovations appointing local artisans and keeping us informed of progress every step of the way.  Problems invariably crop up when renovating old buildings, but Martin’s approachable manner, combined with his building knowledge made finding solutions easy. We could not have done this without Martin, he has been brilliant and we would recommend him wholeheartedly”.
