Jarnac property search pays off
The senior partner received a text from some Arsenal season ticket holders who also happen to have gone from being old clients into new friends.
They are settling into the beautiful riverside house I found for them in Bourg Charente (pictured), midway between Jarnac & Cognac.
I was out cycling with a couple of friends and happened to be passing their house....I couldn't resist letting rip with a quick "come on you spurs" as we sped by.
The text read "Is your yob of a husband out cycling at the moment. If the answer is yes then you need to have words as he scared our guests".
Of course I have subsequently issued a grovelling apology and all isn't lost as we were invited to a truly scrumptious BBQ with them the other night.
It's a perk of the job that I sometimes get to enjoy the pleasures of the houses (and gardens) that I find in this way.
It's an added incentive when I'm searching to know that if I play my cards right there's a decent chance that I'll be invited to share a cold beer on the terrace - or, if I'm really lucky, maybe even some prime entrecote, a decent Bordeaux and plenty of laughter as with David & Lorraine.
