After relocating to Paris from NYC about a year ago, I found an apartment I loved and quickly realized that, before moving in, I would need the kind of help and advice only a qualified architect could provide. I also knew that, for all sorts of reasons, I would feel most comfortable working with a native English speaker.
An American real estate broker here in Paris recommended Rebecca Newman to me and, from our first phone exchange, I had no doubt she was a person with whom I could communicate and with whom I would enjoy working. Simply put, she was enthusiastic and delightful.
On the professional side, I was very glad to have her on board.
My apartment is in a 16th-century building and it was crucial to know precisely what could and could not be done in terms of renovation without compromising its structure: Would it be possible to cut a hole in the kitchen wall to create a nice open hatch into the living room? Answer: yes. What about making updates to the main bathroom with its rather outdated plumbing? Answer: Here’s what’s possible, here’s what is not.
Rebecca also works with a very pleasant and competent team, she’s available to answer questions and generous with her time. Also very important, she listens to her client and does her best to implement that person’s wishes.
For all of these reasons, I am happy to recommend Rebecca wholeheartedly.
