I have long had a passion

for property, and worked

as an estate agent in the

Perigord Noir before joining

Leggett fi ve years ago. I

chose Leggett because they

off ered fl exibility, and I

could do something I loved

and organise my workload

around my young family

- my boys are now 13 and 14. Working from

home means I can be an effective full-time agent and still

defrost the chicken and hang out the washing! Leggett also

appealed because the company is excellent at marketing, I

was a marketing executive in the UK before coming to France,

and I identifi ed with the proactivity that Leggett demonstrates.

There have been some challenges in the last few years, not least

Brexit, but this has not stopped Leggett from investing heavily

in marketing. Being an estate agent has enriched family life,

my husband's business benefi ts from my activity as he installs

satellite TV/WiFi for all my clients. Now he has a massive client

base in the area and often helps me with mandate leads. We live

in the famous market town of Sarlat and have made many

friends from the people who have settled here. I try to include

new arrivals in the local events such as the Fête de la Musique,

Journées du Patrimoine, or local music gigs, and it gives me

a lot of pleasure to look around the room and see a bunch of

former clients who are now friends with me and each other. My

daily routine usually begins when the boys have headed off for

school, and after catching up with emails and admin, I typically

make my fi rst appointment of the day at 10.00 am. I fi nd the

properties are more attractive once the sun is properly up

and the clients more awake after a cup of coff ee! Recently, I

spent an afternoon mandating a property in a lovely position

overlooking the Château-des-Milandes, where I noted details,

measured the rooms, and took photos. Photos are increasingly

important at creating a good fi rst impression for buyers searching

on the internet, and Leggett is on the cutting-edge of 360°

videos, drone, and 3D mapping. I can, without hesitation, say that

I love my job. Yes, there are moments when it's frustrating, and

being remunerated by commission requires careful management.

I have also learned not to panic if there aren't many sales in the

pipeline. Hard work pays off, and property sales can be a lot

like buses - they come all at once!
