About Aude Ariège Property
Aude Ariège Property was started in 2008 by Elaine Youngs. She had spent six years working for one of the large French estate agencies in Carcassonne and realized that she could offer her clients much better service as an independent ‘agent commerciale’ – real estate agent. In 2016 she decided to retire and asked me to take over.
Before moving to France, I owned a travel business and property rental portfolio for 25 years. My wife and I moved from Lancashire to Limoux in 2008 in search of a change of lifestyle. We began our new life in France by undertaking the renovation of a large house into a chambres d’hôtes (bed and breakfast), which we ran for seven successful seasons. We subsequently moved from there to take on another renovation project in the Razès, where we now live.
I understand the apprehension and difficult decisions to be made in purchasing a property in France and can help you overcome these to find your perfect house. I am a native English speaker, with a good grasp of the French language and am a registered ‘agent commercial’. As part of a network of independent agents throughout France and in particular the region of the Aude and Ariège I have access to many properties and am well placed to offer my clients knowledgeable advice and a first class house buying or selling service.
Please contact me if you have questions are about the process of buying property in France, or about the state of the housing market in the Aude Ariège, or the climate in the Razès, or anything you’d like to know that would make it easier for you to buy your dream house in the south of France.
