Do you plan on arriving in France soon ?

Do you have far too much to do and has it become a source of stress?
We understand and can help you!
But above all…
Congratulations on your decision and WELCOME TO FRANCE!!

You may be arriving alone, as a family, as a foreigner or as a French citizen returning from a long period living abroad.
Whatever your situation, you may feel lost in the huge number of procedures that have to be followed in order to move.
One of the first things to do, after taking care of your choice of Visa,
is to find the right housing for you and your family. It is an important step, which will allow you to integrate
into the French cultural landscape. Since our job is to lighten your load as much as possible, once we have completely understood your needs,
conducted our own research and prepared a programme of visits, we will take you on a tour of the different properties available.
During this time, we will be there to answer all of your questions,
until you are totally comfortable in your new home.

Our aim is to eliminate the stress that moving house can cause so that
newcomers have the best possible impression of France.

Je vous remercie pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour moi ! Grace à vous, j’ai repris confiance en moi et ne me laisse plus submerger par mes courriers. Je vais à la boîte aux lettres quasi tous les jours.

I really enjoyed working with Domitille and your company - everything went smoothly and we fly to the USA on Monday.  Domitille has a wonderful demeanor - always positive, always time for me - really a wonderful person to work with, especially in this line of work where clients can be quite emotional and stressed out while moving their families.

Je me trouvais dans une situation qui semblait inextricable lorsque j'ai fait appel à votre société. Un peu désespérée, je tournais en rond dans mon dossier, malgré de nombreuses lettres recommandées qui tentaient de justifier mes requêtes...mais qui restaient sans réponse! Je n'imaginais pas que la solution pourrait arriver aussi rapidement, lorsque je vous ai contacté. Accueil, convivialité, écoute, compréhension fine des situations, efficacité, détermination...toutes ces qualités de Laurence ont permis de débrouiller rapidement ma situation. JE RECOMMANDE VIVEMENT !!

From the start, I appreciated your comprehensive explanations of the Parisian housing timing and obstacles. This was helpful as we planned the timing of our relocation and lead us to recalibrate our expectations and traveling plans. Your timely answers helped us identify what was available in the market and understand the opportunities and constraints. Thank you so much Chiara.

Ho contattato FamilyZen per farmi assistere nella ricerca di un appartamento a Parigi. Ero in difficolta’ perche’ il mercato degli affitti e’ molto teso e non avevo il tempo per gestire da sola la ricerca.
Sono stata subito contattata da Chiara, che essendo italiana poteva capire facilmente le mie esigenze. Effettivamente ci e’ riuscita alla perfezione !
Chiara e’ un’ottima conoscitrice del mercato immobiliare parigino e mi e’ stata accanto in tutto il processo, dalla ricerca dell’appartamento giusto per la mia famiglia alla stipula dei contratti di affitto, delle assicurazioni obbligatorie e delle utenze.
Sicuramente rimarro’ in contatto con lei e non posso che consigliarla, specialmente agli italiani che si trasferiscono per la prima volta a Parigi.
