Interview in Le Petit Journal.com – February 2017

Marie Mahmouch, our Managing Director, has been interviewed in French by Pétronille ROSTAGNAT, journalist and writer at Le Petit Journal.com. More articles will follow along the year to promote our brand and services towards the French speakers community.
MARIE MAHMOUCH – « Nous accompagnons nos clients dans l’acquisition de leurs biens immobiliers en France où ailleurs depuis l’étranger » Vendôme International Property est un promoteur français, qui a ouvert ses bureaux aux Emirats, en 2010, pour être au plus proche de ses clients. L’équipe comprend une dizaine de personnes, aux nationalités multiples, dont l’objectif est d’accompagner au mieux toute personne vivant au Moyen-Orient dans son projet d’acquisition d’un bien immobilier en France, majoritairement. Marie Mahmouch, directrice des bureaux de Dubaï et, petite-fille du fondateur du groupe, nous présente les services et les avantages qu’apporte son entreprise. Le petitjournal/dubaï : Vendôme International Property est une entreprise familiale. Vous avez baigné dans cet univers depuis votre enfance. Aujourd’hui, vous êtes à la tête des bureaux de Dubaï. Racontez-nous votre parcours. Marie Mahmouch : Tout a commencé il y a une quarantaine d’années quand mon grand-père, alors basé à Evian-les-Bains, s’est lancé dans la promotion immobilière sous le nom de Groupe LB. Mon père Laurent Bailet a repris le flambeau et a considérablement développé la promotion immobilière ainsi que de nouvelles activités en ouvrant des agences immobilières, des services de syndics, mais aussi en s’occupant de locations saisonnières. Pour ma part, après des études de droit, je suis partie six mois en stage au sein d’une agence immobilière à Dubaï, en 2008. J’ai pu y apprendre l’anglais ainsi que les rouages du métier. Je me suis aussi familiarisée avec la culture du pays. Il faut savoir que nous avions déjà, et ce, depuis les années 2000, une clientèle importante provenant du Moyen-Orient, désireuse d’investir dans l’immobilier en France. De retour de cette expérience, j’ai travaillé au sein d’une agence immobilière à Évian-les-Bains, tout en effectuant en parallèle un stage chez un notaire afin de peaufiner mes connaissances d’un point de vue juridique. En 2009, nous avons créé une filiale internationale. Nous avions de plus en plus de clients basés à l’étranger désireux d’acheter en France, mais dont la perspective des allers-retours que cela pouvait engendrer, constituait un frein à l’acquisition. C’est ainsi que je suis partie tout naturellement en 2010, à Abu Dhabi, ouvrir notre premier bureau à l’international afin d’être au plus proche de nos clients résidant à l’étranger et donc de leur éviter plusieurs déplacements.  Ceci était un sacré pari, les émirats connaissant une période de crise économique à cette époque. En 2015, nous avons transféré nos bureaux à Dubaï, ayant la majorité de nos clients basés ici. Présentez-nous les services de Vendôme International Property. Vendôme International Property est un groupe qui comprend actuellement cinq agences immobilières (dont une à Dubaï et une autre basée au Koweït), une agence pour les services de syndics et un siège social, toujours implanté à Évian-les-Bains. Vous avez une équipe d’une trentaine de personnes en France avec qui nous travaillons en étroite collaboration. Notre activité première à Dubaï est d’accompagner notre client (local ou étranger) dans l’acquisition d’un bien immobilier que ce soit en France, mais aussi dans d’autres pays comme l’Espagne, le Portugal, l’Allemagne ou encore le Maroc, sans besoin de déplacement de sa part. Ceci commence dès l’élaboration du projet jusqu’à la remise des clefs. En effet, nos services englobent l’ensemble des étapes qu’exigent l’achat d’un bien immobilier comme la recherche en tant que tel du bien, la validation de plan ou encore la signature d’actes notariés. Il faut savoir que nos prestations sont gratuites pour nos clients, étant rémunérées par les promoteurs, avec qui nous travaillons depuis de nombreuses années. Il existe de multiples raisons de vouloir investir dans la pierre depuis l’étranger : investissement, achat d’une maison secondaire, achat pour un de ses enfants, anticipation d’un retour. Nous sommes là pour aider nos clients à réaliser cette envie avec le moins de contraintes possibles. En quoi cela est-il avantageux de passer par vous pour acquérir un bien immobilier ? Nous sommes une entreprise familiale, créée il y a de nombreuses années et nous travaillons avec nos promoteurs depuis toujours. Ceci nous permet de garantir le sérieux des produits que nous proposons, mais aussi l’intégrité de nos partenaires. Comme je l’expliquais précédemment, vous n’êtes pas obligés de vous déplacer pour acquérir votre bien. Nous vous accompagnons pendant toutes les étapes, que ce soit la prospection, la validation des plans si vous investissez dans un programme neuf, le suivis des travaux, et ce, jusqu’à la remise des clefs. Nous sommes votre seul et unique interlocuteur tout au long du processus d’achat. Nous faisons le lien avec le promoteur, les chefs de chantier, le notaire. Enfin, tous ces services proposés par notre entreprise n’engendrent aucun coût supplémentaire pour notre client. Votre Dubaï à vous ? J’aime beaucoup aller dans les parcs le week-end en famille. Vous y retrouvez des familles provenant de toutes les régions du monde qui comme vous viennent se balader, pique-niquer, célébrer un anniversaire tous ensemble. Pour moi, ces lieux représentent tout à fait le côté multiculturel de Dubaï. Nous vivons tous ensemble côte à côte, avec nos différences.

It is there to create a perfect family dream holidays. The real estate of Oman has not been well explored and is relevantly new to the international market but it is certainly a hidden gem. We launched our first project located in Bowsher district of Muscat, not far from the International Airport. It offers spacious properties and can generate healthy tax-free income, if rented. French real estate market attracted both holiday and second home buyers as well as the investors. Euro being weaker against Dollar and Dirhams, many buyers wanted to seize the opportunity.

GCC investors in 2014

Al France Property sees 10% increase in property sales from GCC investors in 2014
Launches regional roadshow in United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to highlight real estate opportunities in France United Arab Emirates, April 2014 – Abu Dhabi-based Al France Property, part of the French conglomerate Groupe LB Immobilier, sees a 10% increase in property sales from GCC investors in 2014, following strong last quarter results in the previous year. In 2013, Al France Property reported sales of €11.5 million from GCC investors across its property portfolio in France and Geneva, with Emirati nationals accounting for 50% of the total sales, with Kuwait and Saudi investors share at 29% and 21%, respectively. Marie Mahmouch, General director, Al France Property attributes the strong sales from the UAE to an ongoing economic boom in the Emirates which has helped to heighten the interest and affordability to invest in France, which in 2012 reached a massive €1.3 billion in total investments across a range of business sectors, including the property market. “The UAE is currently witnessing a resurgence in its economy, propelled by its victorious bid to host the World Expo 2020, the Dirham’s strength vs the Euro, along with of course the continued strong trade relationship the UAE has with France. With the factors mentioned above along with record low interest rates in mortgages, we have seen an increase in the volume of sales by Emiratis in our regions of France by more than 20%, since 2012” Marie Mahmouch sees the next wave of investments to be concentrated in France saying, “We started selling in Paris in the beginning of 2013 and Paris at this moment is really interesting for Emiratis. We do not sell properties in Paris for nationals of Kuwait or KSA for the moment. This will come at the end of the year with a new project.” The French real estate firm, which has also established an office in Kuwait, is optimistic about its prospects in the Gulf region as it launches a regional roadshow that will showcase its property portfolio in France to investors from the UAE, and later on, to buyers from Kuwait and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. According to Marie Mahmouch, France continues to be an attractive property investment hotspot and its reputation remains unsullied. She explained, “Over the last few years, buying property in France has become a popular investment alternative for many people, be it for a permanent move, a second home, or a long-term holiday let. It is also easily accessible to GCC nationals, who see a holiday home in France as an extremely practical and logical investment.” France has enjoyed significant interest from UAE investors, starting with the late Father of the Nation, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his love for the breathtaking landscape of the French Alps and lakes of the Haute Savoie, where the beloved UAE leader acquired residences to enjoy during the summer in areas such as Evian and Thonon. This in turn started the growing preference for Emirati’s to visit here and own a holiday home, which has continued through a generation. She notes that Al France Property’s success in the region is due mainly to its unique advantage of being French property experts, and thus being able to give clients a high level of experience and professional advice, as well as having a direct presence in the region.
