Buying

Philip Hawkes has worked hard over the years to create ease in an otherwise difficult buying process.  We can start by defining your objectives with you before you arrive, to make sure you have a good understanding of what is available to you in the area of your choice and within your price range, and that we have a clear idea of your ideal purchase.

 

Because we work at the top end of our market (particularly with reference to the quality of the architecture), this is the first stage in matching you to your perfect property.  Philip Hawkes is rare in that the Paris department go out of their way to work with other Agents across the city in order to find your ideal home.

 

During the purchase process, we can arrange for a property to be inspected by reputable experts with whom we work closely. These include architects and decorators as well as bankers and Notaires ;   so in addition to our purchasing expertise, they can talk you through important issues that will give you a clear idea of costs and the tax situation before you buy. We can also introduce you to property managers, necessary if the apartment you are buying is for a rental investment.

For the Seller :

 

The Hawkes team are often approached by Vendors well before putting their property on the market.  If they do not already know the Château in question, the first step is to visit the property, take photographs, write a Description and discuss the level of price to be asked.  Once the instructions are taken, they will create a Brochure and propose an advertising campaign.

 

With decades of experience, expertise in evaluation and our network of international clients, collaborating Agents, and marketing resources, we can provide considerable assistance to the Vendor to find the right Purchaser.

 

Philip Hawkes is second to none in terms of discretion and integrity, working in total confidence with their clients.
