The latest news from leading French estate agency, Leggett Immobilier is the appointment of Graham Downie who will be joining the practice as Chief Executive from January 1st 2014, with high profile owner Trevor Leggett moving into the role of Chairman.

Trevor Leggett comments:

“Our business has seen huge expansion over the last few years and we certainly have exciting plans for the future. Graham has over 25 years international property experience at the very highest level with blue chip agencies such as Savills, Jackson-Stops & Staff and Chesterton International plc as well as direct experience in the French property market. He will be tasked with ensuring that our growth continues in a planned and professional manner while I look at how our brand can be used to tackle new markets.

We now help one in ten UK purchasers of French property – from derelict barns with planning permission to some of the finest chateaux in France and were recently voted “Best Estate Agency in France”. We are thrilled that Graham will be joining us at a time when confidence seems to be coming back to the market and are cautiously optimistic that the overall number of international buyers in France will increase next year.

We are a family business, where clients come first, and look forward to 2014 and beyond with confidence”.

In September 2013 Leggett were awarded ‘The Best Estate Agent in France Award at  the International Property awards in London. The International Property Awards are sponsored by Virgin Atlantic and the judging panel is made up of 70 of the most respected names in the property industry. Leggett Immobilier competed against a number of real estate companies in France to receive this recognition and were the clear overall winner.
