Audrey Vanacker

Audrey Vanacker

The main motivation I get from being an agent is working with a satisfied customer. Finding that “rare pearl” in their search for a corner of the Alpine paradise. Something where they know they have found that X-factor. The French have a beautiful phase for this, a “coup de cœur”. Personally I was searching for some peace and tranquillity, close to nature with an active social life. Something the Giffre valley excels at.
