Monsieur Douglas Martin has given us outstanding consultancy and support throughout the process. They have arranged an excellent agreement for us, in very challenging circumstances. We could not have done it without mr. Martin's support and effort.

We have been very happy with the services provided by Douglas - Côte d'Azur team throughout our real estate project. As expatriates, it would have been virtually impossible for us to identify and negotiate a good rate directly with a French bank, but Douglas gave us a couple solid options to work with and made it happen. Throughout our project, he has been very thorough and responsive, and has helped clarify many details and streamline a process that would otherwise have at times felt tedious and opaque - definitely recommend his services to anyone investing in the area from abroad!

Douglas Martin enabled us to get a real estate loan during the covid pandemic period, when it was otherwise extremely difficult to get a bank to examine one's application.
Douglas was a constant, reassuring presence, guiding us through the intricacies of the process, as it was our first time obtaining a loan of this sort in France.
Not only did he find, through his personal contacts, a bank that was responsive, but he also negotiated an interest rate from them that was considerably lower than the one that our own bank was offering. This alone justified Carte Financement's commission many times over.
We highly recommend Douglas Martin and would happily work with him again ourselves.

I worked with M. Martin on the acquisition of an apartment in the Alps, it was a difficult process but a successful one that would not have happened without his support.

Alors que la plupart des banques nous fermaient les portes sans même regarder notre dossier, entrepreneurs et expatriés de surcroit, nous ne rentrions pas dans les schémas habituels. Douglas Martin a su trouver les bons interlocuteurs. Nous le remercions particulièrement pour son suivi efficace et sa disponibilité.

I highly recommend Douglas Martin for anyone wanting to acquire a loan to purchase property in France. He made impossible possible! Despite the fact that my husband and I both speak French, not living in France makes understanding everything, navigating the process difficult. From the beginning, Douglas has been extremely helpful, very responsive, responsible and knowledgeable. We dealt with many professionals in France, and he was the only one that exceeded our expectation and delivered everything promised. He was thorough, detail oriented and explained everything so well. He was fluent in English and French, so communication was easy. He worked through the summer time for us, which may sound nothing unusual, but actually a HUGE deal in France as everyone is on vacation in the summer in France! Working with other professionals in France at the same time, we have to say he was such an outstanding broker.
We cannot recommend him enough for anyone serious about getting a loan in France to buy property. I will certainly use him again in the future for any financial assistance.

We were very impressed with the service provided by Douglas from start to finish. He was very thorough in his approach and always willing to answer the questions we had which there were many of. Our project wasn’t of huge value compared to other projects that you work on, I know, but to us it was huge and so the time, effort and professionalism that Douglas put into our case was hugely appreciated. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to purchase a property in France. A first class service provided and for that we thank you sincerely.

Étant donné la difficulté d’obtenir un prêt en ce moment, nous sommes convaincus que sans l’aide précieuse de Douglas Martin, nous n’aurions pas réussi à obtenir la maison de nos rêves à Mougins. Nous lui en sommes éternellement reconnaissants. Douglas a une expertise, des contacts ainsi qu’un accompagnement qui ont grandement facilité le process.

My wife and I are very private and have never left a public review for any service before. However, after working with Douglas over the past few months, we felt compelled to say something to express our gratitude. We recently purchased an apartment in Nice, France, and as Americans with no French language skills, we really didn’t know where to begin. Thankfully our realtor referred us to the amazing Douglas. Not only was it helpful that Douglas speaks English but his patience in helping us navigate the tones of French documents was second to none (You have been warned the French love their paperwork). We felt in such good hands as Douglas supported us every single step of the way, from miraculously securing us a French mortgage (even after few brokers had told us that French banks were unlikely to lend to Americans); to helping us open a bank account; apply for life and house insurance, and most importantly step-in to smooth relations when we confronted last minutes issues with our seller. If you are looking for a one-stop shop, look further than Douglas!
Thank you so much, Douglas, for your professionalism and warmth towards us throughout the process and for always availing yourself to speak to us despite the US/French time difference. We are so grateful and look forward to purchasing our next French property with you. With all our appreciation!
