Looking for a place in New York City can be a daunting experience but Francois is dedicating himself to make it as easy and relaxed as possible. He puts himself in the customer's shoes in order to best understand peoples' needs and desires. His dedication to his clients is matched by an extensive knowledge of NYC where he has lived for more than 20 years. Francois' passion for real estate started early when looking for a place to live in Paris. He was fascinated by where people choose to live and what options were available to them. After moving to New York, where he worked as a Graphic Designer and Art Director for more than a decade, he opened his own art gallery in Tribeca. But he always enjoyed the process of helping people find a place for their stay in the city and ultimately decided to make it a full-time career. Originally from France, Francois speaks fluent French (mais oui!) and English. After studying Film and Visual Communication in Paris, he moved to New York to study Graphic Design at Parsons and started to work immediately for magazines such as Redbook, First for Women, American Salon and Ok! magazine. He loves architecture, design, movies and travelling. Vibrant, cosmopolitan cities are his favorite destinations and his personal trilogy is New York-Paris-Rio!
