Eva BESSING

For how long have you been living in France?

It’s been 38 years! And the last 12 I have spent here in Valbonne.

Any story to share from your work life?

I had a very odd situation with a sale that was cancelled twice at the last minute. First I had gotten an offer at 1 200 000 €, and we were at the notary about to sign the contract and the seller changed his mind. 6 months later I was back at the notary office, I had another offer with 1 350 000 €, and the deposit was already paid, but the seller cancelled the sale again. After another 6 months the transaction finally went through, at 1 570 000 €, with the same buyer. I really had to keep cool during the whole process!

What do you enjoy doing on a day off?

In the summer I like to have a picnic on the beach, go hiking or spend time with friends.

What makes a good real estate agent?

You need to be a good listener, keep calm, be organised, be well-dressed and smiling, but most of all you need to know the market and the business.

For how long have you worked with Wretman Estate?

I joined the team in October 2016.

What were you doing before?

I had my own real estate company called Riviera Consulting. I passed the exam to become a certified real estate agent in 2008, and now I am an expert!
