Dream Weekend in Paris


My own maison in Southwestern France, you TOO can have one!

After hosting a very successful webinar called Buying the Dream in 2015, to introduce interested parties to the idea that buying a place in Paris or a villa in France is possible and not as expensive or difficult as you might think, we’ve decided to make a thing of it. There hasn’t been a better time to buy in over a decade and that’s why I want to personally invite you to learn more.

Come for a long weekend in Paris to learn how to buy from a panel of experts including; notaires (French real estate lawyers), realtors, tax specialists, rental agents and expats who live here.

Before and after our Saturday seminar Girls’ Guide to Paris and yours truly will entertain you with all that Paris has to offer, so even if you decide that buying is not for you, I promise you’ll have a spectacular time!
Purpose: To learn in detail and to ask questions from the experts on how to buy an apartment or a maison in France. Plus to have a wonderful vacation in Paris.
Cost: $1275 – $1500 (price will go up after 2/15/2015)
