...made sourcing a mortgage for our house in France painless...
16 Aug 2022 - M Turner (Saint-Alban-des-Vallards)

"Louis is diligent and responsive and made sourcing a mortgage for our house in France painless, while being in the whole relocation process from UK to France, during the pandemic etc. Recommended"

The project was not always easy, but she calmly encouraged and dealt with all the problems that arose along the way.
15 Aug 2022 - Tiffany and Richard Johnson - Normandy

"I really recommend International Private Finance when buying a house in France. Our adviser guided us through the whole process of buying a property with huge understanding and knowledge. The project was not always easy, but she calmly encouraged and dealt with all the problems that arose along the way. She was incredibly organized, but also showed huge empathy when we were struggling with the process. She was always quick to get in contact and tackle issues. Her advice and help were absolutely invaluable and we could not have managed it on our own without having a nervous breakdown! It is a very life changing and stressful journey to go on and we had huge faith in our adviser at all times, which she more than lived up to. She also dealt with the notaire and agents with a very efficient manner and they were also impressed with her professionalism. We are now in the house, very excited about living in France and hugely grateful for all the assistance."

If you have been contemplating working with IPF my advice is to just do it!
15 Aug 2022 - Anonymous - Paris

"It has been a dream of mine for a long while to obtain my own apartment in Paris. After being told countless times this is not possible as a UK citizen, I reached out to IPF. I had the pleasure working with Ellie Butler who is an incredible and meticulous person. She was able to successfully find a mortgage which met my needs. She is professional, diligent, reassuring and worked incredibly hard to overcome obstacles that came our way. I was supported every step of the way- she was always available, even during her non-standard working hours. I couldn’t thank her enough and the overall support and professionalism experienced from IPF was outstanding. I have already recommended Ellie to several people who also have an interest in purchasing a property abroad. I think the package they offer is worth it! If you have been contemplating working with IPF my advice is to just do it!"

...meticulous and precise and clearly went to great lengths to facilitate a successful outcome...
12 Aug 2022 - Mr & Mrs F - Morzine

"We had already been turned down by another broker who suggested we would not be successful in getting a French mortgage. Louis went through various options and explained that there was a 50/50 chance of success. He was willing to help us and explored various options in detail, ultimately resulting in us obtaining the finance we required. He was meticulous and precise and clearly went to great lengths to facilitate a successful outcome. All in all, a very impressive effort by Louis & his contacts. We are very grateful and would strongly recommend his services."

Without Ellie/IPF I think I would either have failed to get the mortgage I wanted, or just given up as it would have been too complex to navigate..
26 Jul 2022 - Michael W - (Provence - Cote d'Azur)

"Ellie was absolutely wonderful and so helpful throughout the process. Buying in France is surprisingly burdensome and as a UK buyer you're used to a lot less red tape and questions and all sorts of things that the bank ask of you. Without Ellie/IPF I think I would have either failed to get the mortgage I wanted or just given up as it would have been too complex to navigate without Ellie/IPF guiding me through the process step by step. 10/10 from me and I would go through them again should I buy a second house in France."

...knowledgeable and diligent throughout the process...
13 Jul 2022 - S Hanson (Morzine)

"Louis @IPF assisted us in obtaining a French mortgage for an oversees investment property. He was knowledgeable and diligent throughout the process offering guidance through what can be a complex and time consuming process. With Louis' help, we got to a quick mortgage offer and efficient completion a number of weeks later."

I had a very good experience with IPF.
8 Jul 2022 - Clive Finlay - Les Belleville

"I had a very good experience with IPF. They took the time to understand my needs throughout the process, and found the appropriate mortgage company after some twists and turns, and were always there at the end of the phone or email to manage the communication and proactively move the process on to hit the deadlines."

...consistently quick, responsive and thoughtful at every step...
1 Jun 2022 - Anonymous - Antibes

"The service provided by Louis at IPF was fantastic. We had pretty much no knowledge about how to buy a property in France when we set out, or how to get a mortgage. He held our hand through the process and was consistently quick, responsive and thoughtful at every step and made it all a huge amount easier."

Thanks so much for all you have done for us to make this happen.
