    The Parisian market for assets sold at prices in excess of 1 million euro

    IS THE PRICE RISE IN PARIS ARTIFICIAL?

    Over 12 months, the Parisian real estate market has attained around 20 billion euro in sales, of which around 4.5 billion were for assets at prices exceeding 1 million euro.

    Art Deco style

    Groupama

    Groupama Immobilier has just finished renovating a 1930's building facing the Eiffel Tower in the capital's 16th District. It is not only particularly elegant, it also benefits from a concierge service that sets it apart. By Eric Jansen Although Arletty lived here for many years, with the passing of time this fine building built by Louis and Georges Marnez between 1935 and 1938 nonetheless needed a serious facelift. The imposing facade set between rue Raynouard, avenue Marcel-Proust and avenue...

    St. Barthélemy

This jewel of the Caribbean, with its omnipresent nature, its twenty or so sandy beaches, it’s harbour where the most beautiful yachts are moored, and its luxurious and yet relaxed atmosphere that makes it so charming?...

    Cécile Verdier

    After ten years at Sotheby's, she has just taken over the management of Christie's France. An appointment announcing a new era. By Eric Jansen We remember her blushing with pleasure as Jacques Grange heaped effusive praise on her. It was November 2017 and the decorator had a good reason to be delighted: the sale of his collection which had been estimated at around 10 million had achieved over 28 million euro. A remarkable success which he naturally attributed to a large extent to Cécile Verdier....

  • Buying in Lisbon

    It has often been said that the Portuguese capital oozes with charm and offers some exceptional real estate, and as a result prices have rocketed! There is still time to invest, but time is of the essence... By Eric Jansen. For decades Lisbon seemed like a slightly faded city forgotten by the modern world, much like the trams that trundle along its cobblestone streets, its authentic buildings (often a little too authentic), and its churches and palaces decked with “azulejo” glazed ceramic tiles....

    Damien Langlois-Meurinne

    With their contemporary, elegant and cosy style, Damien Langlois-Meurinne’s interiors are increasingly acclaimed by an international clientele. Decoration that appeals and inspires.

    Since joining the jewellery department as manager in April 2018, her joy has been evident. With her passion for jewellery and their past history, sales in Paris are sure to scintillate. By Eric JansenWhen Christie's offered her the position she had not turned thirty. A tender age to take charge of a department, and especially the jewellery department.
