French Estate Agents Holt Immobilier Celebrate Their 10th Year in Business.
Despite difficult economic times, both British and Dutch are still keen to move to the area. “The quantity of enquiries is much lower than five years ago, but the quality is much higher,” remarked Zoe Holt, “we have increased our internet presence and had our website rebuilt to become more competitive with search engines. In order to do this we employed the services of an internet and SEO expert.”
The launch of the new site has already seen an improvement in the number of enquiries. “The new site and our higher profile in search engine results combined with a series of new partnership arrangements with leading French property internet portals is already reaping dividends,” Paul Holt enthused.
Operating out of La Souterraine, Creuse department 23, Paul and Zoe Holt have seen many changes in the market during the decade. Incomers to the area have revived flagging rural communities, renovated farm buildings which otherwise would have eventually fallen to ruins. The injection of cash into the local economy has also been welcome. None of these changes has been to the detriment of the simple, tranquil life in what is known as La France Profonde.
Holt Immobilier now have their client reception and offices at their home address in La Souterraine. Here, there is also self catering accommodation for visiting guests wishing to have a more relaxed stay while being able to come and go as they please. Feedback left by clients on the Holt Immo website suggest that the free advice on all aspects of French life and help in the purchase of properties given by Paul and Zoe has been well received.
“Things are working out much better for us basing ourselves at home, after all there are only two of us. Here, we can maximise our time much better. Looking after the business of selling houses, managing the visitor's apartments and doing all the things that a Mum and Dad have to do.”
Zoe has always looked after the agency's website and other internet activity, but admits she happy to hand this over to a specialist. She can now concentrate on other things which include a regular blog on life in the Creuse. http://holtimmo.blogspot.com/
