Apartment search

Is it possible to visit the apartments?
Yes.

Once you have identified the apartment(s) you are interested in, we will arrange a viewing.

These viewings, which are limited to 5, are free.
Do you rent only to corporate clients?
The landlords who trust us to rent out their properties are looking for the best possible tenants.

Generally speaking, corporate clients are excellent tenants and are usually the landlord's favorite applicants.

However, we submit to the landlords every application file meeting the usual solvency criteria, including non-corporate applications.
I did not find the apartment I was looking for, how can you help me?
We have put in place an alert system.

You simply need to specify your search criteria on this page.

If a new apartment matches your search criteria, we will send you an email on the same day.
Every week, we will send you a recap email.

To stop receiving alert emails, you will simply need to unsubscribe to the alert.

What is property management?
Property management is a service we offer to landlords who subscribe to it.

When we are property manager, we replace the landlords for any issue related to the rental:
- If the tenant has a problem during the rental, we are his contact point.
- If the problem is the landlord's responsibility, we take care of it on his behalf.
What are the benefits for the tenant?
The main benefit is to deal with a professional.

This translates into better reactivity, knowledge of the law regarding tenants' and landlord's responsibilities and the ability to mobilize quickly a network of trusted plumbers, electricians, heating specialists, locksmiths, etc.
Does it mean you can help me during the rental?
Yes.

In any case, when we are propery managers, you can call us in case of problem.
