Leggets are looking for agents throughout France again. :lol: they must have a high turnover.
Not sure this would be the best time to join them.

One huge consequence of Brexit is that U.K. citizens no longer automatically have the right to work in France. The rules for employment are strict and the areas allowed fairly narrow. I can’t imagine that any Briton who was not resident in France before 01/01/2021 would be entitled to work as a France based Leggett’s agent. 🙂

Good point :good:

I had to laugh when she said "we are constantly looking for new agents throughout France", a nice spin on "we have an incredibly high turnover of staff, most leave within a couple of months when they realise how much money it has cost them" :lol:

I knew Trevor from the time we lived in the Dordogne, he lived almost on the Charente/Dordogne border. One has to admit that from being a tradesman to running what might well the largest Immo in France but using agents which has become the norm for many Immobiliers. No sales, no salary.....
Another friend was a training "officer" for teaching agents over two days in La Rochebeaucourt which is, or was, HQ for Leggetts. Not heard personally of many satisfied clients who who hope to sell through an agent. I remember years ago they picked up Immo awards in 2013 approx, which I think were awarded in part by themselves?

So basically, you drive 60,000 + Kms but you pay the driving costs. If you’re lucky you make a sale and you might get a few hundred euros in commission. Seems like good old Leggetts are the only winners but hey ho what do I know!
