Prior to his current job, Matthew Burnett worked for French companies in the paper and packaging industry for 25 years. He knows the area very well having lived here since 1997 and is passionate about the local culture, history and rugby!

She arrived in Bearn 22 years ago to renovate an old farmhouse where she and her family can live. With her experience in negotiation, her patience, her ability to listen and advise, and her love of old stone houses, she decided to move into the estate agency business where she has now been practising for 15 years. She will be an excellent guide to help you find what you are looking for and settle in the area.

Emilie has fulfilled several roles within the agency since her arrival in Salies de Béarn in 2014. Consequently, she is well informed and equipped to help you through the process of the sale or purchase of your property. Formally a teacher and passionate about history (and horses!), she enjoys helping clients discover the area!
