Barnes Realty Has Opened Two New Offices in the French Alps
International luxury estate agent Barnes has recently opened two new offices in the French Alps – one in Lake Annecy and the other in Chamonix, the Alpine capital of the world.
Close to its office in Megeve, the decision to open an office in Chamonix was a natural choice. With easy access from Geneva, the Chamonix real estate market is one of the most dynamic in the Alps. Chamonix has an incredibly international year-round population, high visitor rates in summer and winter and recent years have seen steady growth in high-end clientele looking for a chalet. Barnes Immobilier in Chamonix aims to compete with the other luxury property estate agents in the town.
The new office in Lake Annecy will target high-end properties in the area's most desirable locations. Perfect for those wanting a "city life" with the benefit of dozens of France's best ski resorts within one hour's drive, plus a short commute to Geneva, the office in Annecy will be the place to go for those looking for luxury homes with both lake and mountain living.
The agency in Annecy will also focus on the ever-growing population of young professionals in the area, with a selection of stylish properties including lofts, apartments, and pied-a-terres.
With a strong local market, huge demand from British buyers and growing interest from Asia and the Middle East, the decision to open more offices in the French Alps is a natural step for Barnes. They will join other international realtors such as Cluttons, Knight Frank, Sotheby's, and Savills.
