I’m so chuffed that I decided to go with a real estate agent in the end and more so feel very lucky to have worked with Jean and Niels! It was a little bit daunting having only a limited time to sell my beloved apartment and the process surrounding it but Jean took the reins like a pro and I really appreciated his warm and friendly manner. It was also really wonderful making a nice connection with the buyer and to know that the apartment was going to a good home. (Excuse the pun!) Thank you very much chaps! : )
I was dealing with Jean Boudin in Invest-AB and found him and them fantastic in every way. Efficient, highly proficient, communicative and responsive. I trusted them from the moment I made contact with them and they certainly did not disappoint. I would highly recommend Jean and Invest AB personally and will work with them in the future…and I recommend you do too. You will be in good hands!
Thank you very much Jean and Invest AB, for everything.
I met Jean and Niels from AB invest for the sale of my apartment in Berlin. They are professional and efficient. Being based in the UK, I need someone I could trust and deal with the sale. They did more than enough I would recommend Invest-AB to any overseas seller for peace of mind.
Very friendly team. We were able to sell our property in Charlottenburg to a French family. From the evaluation of the property through the purchase process, everything worked very well. Especially personal contact and fast communication were a very important factor for us.
