- 51 agencies briefed
- 16 chalets shortlisted
- Offer accepted on client’s first-choice property
- 13.2% saving negotiated
- "Seb and his team offer an outstanding service. Their attention to detail, understanding and efficiency saved us time, money and frustration. From the Middle East to life in the south of France - there is no doubt that we owe enormous gratitude to Galleon for helping us make our dream a reality."

- "Viewing and choosing our property with Sebastien's help was a really enjoyable and stress-free experience, he found us the right property because he took the time to find out exactly what we needed. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for a property in France."
