What our customers say

WHat our customers say

“A great support”

"Between our first idea of an apartment in Paris and the actual purchase, 6 intensive months went by. In  that time Annemiek and Frank showed us the way in many areas, took our chestnuts out of the fire and explained to us how the real French way of doing business."

Sylvia and Michiel august 2018

"We enjoy our great spot in Paris very much!"

"We hired Frank and Annemiek to find us a pied-à-terre in Paris. We succeeded perfectly. We are happy with the apartment and have had a lot of support, during the search, during the legal process and during the subsequent renovation of our flat. Experience and commitment, but also tenacity, are evident from everything Annemiek and Frank do".

"Great people you can rely on"

"Report on 6 months of collaboration with Paris Scarabee Frank and Annemiek: In 2016 my husband and I bought a nice, slightly dated apartment in Paris. That had to be rebuilt and the French interior architects I came in contact with were not entirely up to the challenge. But Frank and Annemiek were!"

"Fast and knowledgeable"

"It worked out. The sale of our flat has come about. We want to thank you very much for your help. If we had had to do it all by ourselves, it would have been quite a tour".

"Not a bargain, but worth every penny

"Without Annemiek and Frank from Parisscarabee, it would not have been possible (and so quickly) to find an apartment in Paris and renovate it. They know Paris like the back of their hand and are therefore very good at advising in which neighborhood (s) to look for the best. We have arrived in a perfect place."

"Successful within four months!"

"With the intensive, efficient and personal help of Annemiek and Frank, we have succeeded in finding a wonderful apartment in Paris within four months. Through our conversations with them, our wishes quickly became more concrete and realistic."

Ellen & Jean-Pierre November 2015

"Tremendously happy"

"Frank and Annemiek helped me greatly, both with the purchase of two apartments and with the sale of one apartment. Their in-depth knowledge of the French language, but above all their excellent connections with sympathetic real estate agents, and an outstanding notary were decisive in finding my dream home!"

Daniël Jansen op de Haar July 2015

"Dreams of Paris"

"We knew exactly what we wanted. We had a vision, a dream, a mission! Frank and Annemiek helped us to realize it. When we first met for coffee in a local bar in the 10th arrondissement, we knew immediately that they understood what we were looking for. They shared our passion for Paris and had a keen understanding of the real estate market and its laws and regulations. They had the ability to picture what we were dreaming of, and so the search began."

"Better place for our money!"

"We engaged Frank and Annemiek to find a studio in Paris for our daughter (20). She studies there and wants to build up a life in Paris. We wanted something with a separate bedroom, in a safe area, and a flat tranquil enough to allow for study".

Turner family August 2014

"Totally awesome!"

"Thanks to Annemiek and Frank, our great wish has been fulfilled. They have shaped our search for an apartment in Paris in a bold and sympathetic way. Not in the least thanks to their excellent connections with both brokers and contractors. Frank and Annemiek speak better French than many Parisians do. Highly recommended by us, Family de Kat."

"Frank and Annemiek assisted us enthusiastically in our search for an apartment in Paris. They are very well informed about all ins and outs related to the purchase and renovation of a Parisian apartment. We wholeheartedly recommend them."

W. Stoker June 2013

“A to Z”

"Frank and Annemiek work fast and efficiently. They left us room for our own ideas. They found us a unique apartment that needed a complete renovation. Without their help we would have never dared to take up such a challenge. Everything worked out fine and the result is simply beautiful."

“Indispensable”

"If you plan to acquire real estate in Paris, it would be smart to work with Annemiek and Frank. We have done so and we are extremely satisfied. Annemiek and Frank have excellent knowledge of the French language and of French legal matters. They are practical, they work fast, and they provide answers to all your questions."

M. van Engelshoven Spring 2011

"Absolute top-class"

"We wanted an apartment in a defined area, that we could use for ourselves as well as for investment purposes. It was key to us that our wishes be heard, and at the same time we wanted help in refining our choices. Everything around the purchase was taken care of, included in the price, and with continuous communication.  Annemiek and Frank work perfectly as a team."
