BordeauxLife has an 80% international client base and first contact is generally via our website or social media. When a potential client gets in touch, by whatever means, we always suggest that it would be good to talk. Email and WhatsApp messenger have their uses but nothing beats a good chat! Thanks to today's technology, it costs almost nothing but it does help us to understand exactly what your expectations are, your likes and dislikes, your timeline and, most importantly, whether we are able to help you with your move.
We are also able to explain in detail how we work together to ensure a successful relocation. This is really important as we do not work in the same way as many other relocation consultancy companies. As the majority of our clients come from overseas, this often means that we are looking for accommodation and schooling in advance of your arrival in France and we know, from experience, that the more we get to know you, the easier it is for us to really personalise your relocation from start to finish.
We own the company and we do the work. We are very personal and passionate about both ensuring that we deliver the very best service possible and, above all, that you and your family are going to be happy and settled in your new city. Sometimes all you may need is a little more detail on schooling for your children or information on how to compile a French property dossier. This may help you move forward and make a more informed decision on whether your planned move is possible or not.
We often feel that our prospective clients are a little scared to talk, perhaps worried that they are going to be on the end of a “hard sell”. That’s definitely not the way we work! Indeed, we are candid and transparent and have, on the rare occasion, found that we are not able to help. Perhaps due to our high workload, geographical constraints or perhaps because your dossier would not be accepted here - it’s very rare but not unheard of - but we do make sure that we offer alternative routes and options for you.
As individuals we have moved with our families both internationally and within France and really do understand how challenging and stressful this process can be making us your ideal relocation partner. So please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us - even if your dream to move to Bordeaux is still in its infancy. We are always happy to give advice and to talk you through the positives (and negatives - yes, believe it or not, there are some negatives!) of life in Bordeaux and her surrounding areas.
