M.R., Officer of the State of Geneva, September 2017
« Michael was my financial advisor during my purchase of a new build house in Tannay. He was extremely diligent, always following up, pro-active, and was an essential part of the process to get the deal done in a very tight timescale. He suggested solutions, resolved issues, and generally was a top professional during the whole process. He was also an absolute pleasure to work with which always helps, a very likeable person. As a foreigner buying a property in Switzerland, with limited knowledge of the process, Michael guided me the whole way from start to finish and it would not have been possible without him. I recommend him unreservedly. »
E.B., Oil trader, November 2017
« Quand on est propriétaire de son logement et qu’on souhaite construire, il est difficile de trouver un repreneur tout en prenant en considération les délais de la construction et de la livraison du nouveau bien. En plus de cela, il faut pouvoir trouver le financement adéquat du nouveau bien en prenant en considération les charges du bien actuel. Avec l’aide de M. RICHOZ, cette étape a pu être franchie avec une grande efficacité et nous l’en remercions. »
M.P., Fonctionnaire de police, janvier 2018
« I have recently worked with Michael on a real-estate financing project. He has been highly recommended to me by a number of friends and colleagues working in highly respected financial institutions in Geneva.
My experience working with Michael has been terrific: He is an extremely capable financial advisor – with excellent listening and inter-personal skills. He is bright and quick: He mastered our financial data and concern quickly, proposed a very sound advice, and followed up our file with diligence, creativity and resourcefulness. In a matter of less than 10 days, he advised me types of documentation to submit, effectively presented my file to the financial institution in a very convincing manner, and quickly obtained the financing agreement on our behalf. On the human side, Michael is a courteous, personable and very pleasant person to work with. For example, I felt extremely comfortable asking him – without any hesitation – a number of both “small” and “big” questions during the entire process.
The fact that Michael is fully bilingual (French and English) could be a great advantage for members of international community in Geneva in seeking advice and support in real-estate financing.
I have a very favourable view of Michael and look forward to working with him again in our future financing projects.
I strongly recommend him. »
