Following many holidays in France we discovered Normandy. Soft and gentle valleys with quaint fairy tale cottages, manoirs and chateau. Wonderful beaches, markets and a pace of life that is hard to find in a modern world. We decided to buy our 400 year old timber framed longere in 2002 as a second home. Many adventures followed. We worked hard to create a home and learned many lessons, formed many contacts and got to know our region well. In 2016 we ‘upped sticks’ and took the plunge to create a new life in our little domaine.
Home and Dry in Normandy grew from our own personal experiences. Pete enjoyed a number of commercial management roles in the UK with national companies, including the sale and acquisition of larger commercial properties to satisfy clients. Then operating as an Agent Commercial with a large international estate agency in the region. We determined that forming our own independent business was a satisfying way to help our clients to purchase, sell and find a property; understanding the importance of the private sales market in France, and how to help clients save paying huge estate agency fees. We realised the need to offer a range of services to owners. Especially second home owners who needed support from a business that can be trusted from a distance.
Pete and Jan work together as a team harnessing their collective talents. They take on projects to help clients to realize their vision. But also realize the simple needs for peace of mind, security checks, key holding, emergencies, tradesmen and all the other things that they know will happen.
Home and Dry in Normandy are about peace of mind to help clients to find their dream home with a range of services to smooth that path. Look after the needs that crop up, and also assist a sale if it is time for a change. All personally tailored towards the client.
