'Sarah Francis of Sifex is positive about the Loire's château market. "This year has shown more movement compared to previous years and there has been a return of clients looking for châteaux in the area. Prices have not moved and there is a good supply of nice properties withprices being negotiated, so it's a good time to buy."'

June 2014 - French Property News - The first Château I ever sold

"Started by Sarah Francis in 1989, estate agency Sifex ( Société Immobilière Française Extraordinaire) also celebrates its 25th anniversary this year." (Just to set the record straight, in actual fact this was not the first 'property' i ever sold.. but it certainly was a milestone in my life as it was the first 'château I ever sold. I started my french property adventure all those years ago - selling cottages and barns in Normandy and Brittany and my first ever sale was in Brittany and far from being a Château!
