Douglas Hines

Commercial Agent

I moved to France 15 years ago with my wife and daughter. The life style, the climate and of course the food/wine were all attractions which all go to make up a great way of life. I have been working with CIC now for ten years. I enjoy the challenge of finding my clients their new home in France and then helping to make the purchase as easy as possible.
