Sarah Ewing and her partner Dan bring a wealth of experience to their role as LBV Property Managers.

With two years' experience in Paris as a housekeeper in a previous life, her French language skills are ideal for helping their local clients.

Dan and Sarah moved to France permanently in early 2014, together with their six-year-old twins. They are now available to help local clients and look forward to hearing from you if you need any assistance in their area.

what their clients say...

"In 2015 we decided to rent our house:  it was Sarah and Dan who not only transformed the rental of our property and managed the guests but more importantly we had someone we could trust, from day one they were the height of efficiency and professionalism.  Since then they have shown great initiative and wisdom in how they managed the inevitable ups and downs that come from running a holiday home in France.  We could not have done it without them, a great team and thoroughly dependable!." ~ Nuala

"It amazes me how you always come ready with the solution to the problem as you report it!" ~ Ben Johnson, County Clare, Ireland

"Feedback from guests has been consistently great, with all visitors spontaneously commending the cleanliness and readiness of the property and the helpfulness of Sarah and Dan in response to questions or requests." ~ Ray Bowen, Cheshire

Richard and Debbie bring a wealth of skills and experience to their roles as LBV property managers. Richard was Head of Accommodation for a UK university and handled property management issues there. Debbie worked as a benefits and budget advisor to the elderly, helping them to maximise their incomes and reduce expenditure.

They decided to relocate to France to fulfil a long-standing dream, and to become property managers with LBV because they believe strongly in the benefits of having homes cared for at a local level. They have personal experience of what can happen when homes are not supervised, as their own holiday home near Puivert was broken into one year and was flooded due to broken pipes another. After those experiences they became acutely aware of how much 'strife and heartache (and possibly even money!)' a local property manager can save absentee home-owners and decided they were just the people to carry that message to their own clients.

Tony and Jane bring a wealth of skills and experience to their roles as LBV property managers. Tony had a long career in IT and spent time renovating his own homes (including re-wires, plumbing, painting, decorating and garden maintenance). Jane has extensive work-experience in a variety of countries, using her project-management, people-management and organisational skills. She also has hotel and 'hospitality' experience.

Both Tony and Jane fell in love with France after many happy holidays here and one day made a decision to begin a new life in France. The Languedoc region was top of their list and they settled in Gard, in a beautiful village in the Cevenne National Park. Having worked in 'customer facing' roles all their lives, both Tony and Jane have a belief that the customer always comes first and live by the motto: 'If a job is worth doing, it's worth doing well'.

what their clients say...

“I have received very frequent favourable comments from guests about the cleanliness of the house -  so essential to get a holiday off to the best start. .. In addition, [Tony & Jane] communicate effectively and demonstrate an ability to properly plan ahead to cope with the busy summer Saturdays. They have not let me down in any way during the time they have worked for me, and this is a very important and comforting feature for which I am extremely grateful.” ~ Steve Abbott, Mid-Suffolk

“We are very happy to have Tony and Jane [to] do the change-over with our guests.  All the people who came to our house this year and last have given them the best recommendation.” ~ Fernand and Lut, Belgium

“The service from Tony and Jane has been excellent… Where LBV excels is the added extras - recommendations of improvements, quick and accurate repairs, honest and trustworthy accounting, incident management etc, etc. The list goes on.” ~ Rob Thomas

Mark and Julie bring a wealth of skills and experience to their roles as LBV property managers. Mark had a long career in housing before setting up his own UK building company in the 1990s. Julie worked within administration, accountancy and quality assurance, latterly as a consultant with the NHS. In the UK they worked together with much hard work and dedication to maintain their own 2-acre garden.

In 2002 they purchased a house in the Hérault area of the Languedoc and began a renovation and refurbishment program which familiarised them with the ups and downs of owning a property in France. Since then they have relocated to France and now offer a range of property management and maintenance services which draw on their combined skills. Mark's experience in the building industry makes him ideally suited to advising and assisting with home maintenance of all kinds.

What their clients say...

"You are absolute stars! Thank you very much for getting that done so quickly! Much appreciated." ~ Joe (Cazouls les Beziers)

"I contacted a number of companies to manage the changeover of our apartment on a small Domaine close to Beziers. After speaking with Julie, they and LBV offered all the services we required including, key holding services, pre and post season cleaning, a comprehensive contract and monthly itemised invoices. They have only been looking after our apartment for the 2017 season and I am very impressed. Communication between us is excellent and they advise and suggest any additional items we need in the apartment, also carrying out small repairs where needed. Most importantly my guests are happy, I am getting 10/10 for cleanliness and comfort. I have no hesitation in recommending Mark and Julie for managing property in the Languedoc region." ~ Frances Shaw, Beziers

property management in languedoc, Hérault east

Meet Andrew & Sharman Mack, LBV property managers in Hérault East. They came to France after a long detour in Australia, so when you do meet them you won't be imagining the Aussie accent! As members of the LBV property management network they will offer various services to their clients, including:

Keyholding

Regular security checks

Mail Forwarding

Arranging collections from port or airport

Villa and apartment changeovers

Property maintenance

Simple repairs and DIY

Garden maintenance

Organising local artisans

Costs for these are charged in line with regional norms and accurate prices relevant to your requirements can be obtained directly from them, as can details of the additional services they provide.

Andrew & Sharman are the ultimate 'hands on' couple when it comes to property management/maintenance. Andrew had a career in heavy plant and off-road machinery via his family’s business, and later worked as a mechanical engineer. He often worked alone in the Australian  ‘outback’ and some remote Pacific islands, so he is highly skilled at planning, lateral thinking and self-sufficiency. Andrew also provided maintenance and repair services to a Sydney Estate Agent. Sharman draws her broad skill-set from a range of key jobs - people skills from serving as a Police Woman for the Greater Manchester Police and her later work in the hospitality industry, admin skills from high-ranking PA posts, and property management knowledge from seven years in the Short-term and Executive lettings market in the Sydney Metro area.

Sharman and Andrew have renovated eight properties between them (several as project managers). They are both keenly aware of the financial mayhem that can result from apathetic or inept property managers and always guide their LBV clients around such pitfalls.  They look forward to working with you.

what their clients say...

"Thank you so much for sending these photos. What a great job! It looks really lovely, and both we and my father and mother are thrilled and it’s obvious you have put a lot of thought and effort into it.’" ~ Strugstad family, Norway

"Merci! Merci! Merci! C'est superbe!  I really appreciate ALL that you did.  Thanks Andrew & Sharman sooo much!"  ~  Michele Boling, California USA
