“I started the house hunting process online and attempted to contact real estate agencies in Lyon by e-mail as my French is not yet up to standard.

After a number of emails that went without reply I reached out to Lyon Expat to see if they could offer me help finding a flat.

They were incredibly helpful from the first e-mail and offered me as much information as possible to help get the process started but also offered a lot of great information on the city.

They used a simple questionnaire to determine the needs for my new flat and I was really pleased with the potential places they had set up for viewings.

I really liked that they arranged the flat viewings to take place on one day, making it easier to take time off from work and not only that but I found the place I wanted to stay in that one day.

The help offered did not stop there, as they then were present for me to sign the contract as well as explain the contract requirements and how to set up important household necessities such as electric and gas accounts.

Overall, I have had a great experience working with Lyon Expat Services and I extend my thanks to both Sophie and Catherine who helped me specifically.”

I am delighted to write this recommendation for Lyon Expat Services and proprietor Sophie Dord.

I am the treasurer for W.R., which had recently acquired a company in the greater Lyon area when it assigned me to a one-year project there. Human Resources found Lyon Expat Services on the Internet and arranged an initial meeting in May 2013.

From the first meeting, Sophie was enthusiastic and sincere to learn of my family’s needs and to begin the process of searching for a furnished apartment. She provided excellent advice as to neighborhoods that would work for my family’s commute to the international school.

On our house-hunting visit, Sophie’s associate  was an excellent tour guide and agent.

The properties located for us to see were all relevant to our needs.

Lyon Expat Services advices on the city were helpful.

Ultimately we found a perfect apartment in an excellent location. Sophie was also extremely helpful in the paperwork phase and a lease was executed without issues.

Overall, the process was very smooth.

Sophie and her team took a lot of stress out of moving abroad.

I am happy to recommend Sophie and Lyon Expat Services to anybody looking to relocate to Lyon.”

I would like to recommend Sophie Dord, Director of Lyon Expat Services and her team for their professional, helpful and friendly advice and services, particularly with respect to finding me a high quality and well located apartment in Lyon, and in managing all the associated administration which could otherwise be timing consuming and potentially stressful.

Sophie and her team have also put together an excellent Handbook about Lyon that gives a great summary of all aspects of getting to know and live in this beautiful city.

I would have no hesitation is recommending Sophie Dord and her friendly team of professionals at Lyon Expat Services.
