Nicolas DESCAMPS - President and real estate agent

After graduating from both a business school in Paris and DEUSTO university in San Sebastián, I worked for two years in Spain and subsequently four years in Paris as sales director for the TAILLEVENT group. In 2006 I chose to settle permanently in the Basque Country, a region that I had regularly visited since my childhood and had always loved. After working for five years as a real estate agent in a prestigious agency in Biarritz, I created the Côte Ouest Immobilier agency at the end of 2011. My agency was subsequently selected by Christie’s International Real Estate to be their exclusive affiliate in the Pyrénées Atlantiques and the south of the Landes department. Fluent in English and Spanish, I listen attentively to both buyers and sellers, not only guiding and advising them throughout each and every stage of their project, but also sharing with them my passion for the unique Basque Country. When time permits my preferred pastimes are golf, hiking and, of course, surfing.

Stanislas de ROUMEFORT - Partner and consultant 

When asked how to convince a buyer to make an offer or to enter into a sales agreement, I would say that about 2% is purely commercial, with a psychological aspect counting for the remaining 98%. In other words, before the potential buyer comes to meet us, he above all knows what he doesn’t want! He is seeking reassurance above all, and this is where we are the ally of both parties. This negotiation phase is very rewarding as, possibly more than in any other professional environment, we have to fully appreciate the character and temperament of each party. We endevour to enrich and share our experience, accompanying each and every person who may, one day, push open the door of our agency with the intention of entrusting us with their property. We understand how to communicate that we fully appreciate the uniqueness of their asset and the importance of treating each case individually. On the web, platforms and sites pertaining to offer valuations are available at the click of a button. Advice and counselling by true professionals with a solid experience is nonetheless essential. I chose to work here and in this business because I am passionate about my region, and my goal is to allow others torealise their dream and find a home on the Basque Coast. We eagerly await your visit in order to share with our extensive knowledge and our passion for our region’s real estate market.

Violaine MURE - Consultant

J’ai eu la chance de ne pas être sédentaire, d’avoir habité et étudié à Paris, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Miami, Guéthary… accumulé une expérience internationale à la rencontre d’autres cultures.

Aujourd’hui mère d’une petite fille qui apprend le basque, je comprends bien la nécessité de bouger, de s’adapter à un nouveau lieu de vie que ce soit pour un nouveau départ en disposant de son patrimoine, pour trouver une résidence secondaire, un pied à terre, ou encore établir son foyer pour une installation pérenne.

Après des études supérieures de psychopathologie de l’enfant, ma vie professionnelle s’est développée dans un contexte de négociation internationale du cinéma et de la publicité, où il faut aller vite et tenir les budgets en restant créative et curieuse.

Rejoindre Côte Ouest Immobilier affiliée Christie’s c’est un gage de savoir-faire et de savoir vivre. Notre lieu de vie incarne les différents moments de notre existence ; c’est avec passion que je recherche les meilleures opportunités pour répondre à vos désirs…

Je cherche aussi les brocantes secrètes ou les meilleures vagues !

Sylvie MAISONNEUVE - Consultant

Although I am today the mother of a little girl who is learning the Basque language, I previously had the good fortune to be something of a globetrotter, having studied and lived in Paris, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Miami and Guéthary, an experience that allowed me to encounter a wide variety of experiences and cultures.

Consequently, I understand the need to move, to adapt to a different lifestyle, whether it is in an occasional pied a terre or in a long-term family home.

After studying child psychopathology, I pursued my career path in cinema and publicity on an international level, a field in which it is essential to manage budgets while moving rapidly without losing sight of creativity.

When I joined Côte Ouest Immobilier, an exclusive affiliate of the world-famous Christie’s group, I knew that I was making a lifestyle choice. Where one lives is how one lives… and it with true passion that I look forward to accompanying you throughout your real estate project in this beautiful region.
