About your Guide

Hi, I’m Dennelle, and I’m going to help you buy your French Dream Home!

Dennelle Taylor Nizoux began her journey in 2000 as a renter in Paris. Since then, she has bought property, renovated it completely, rented it out, sold it, and bought again…with another complete renovation planned soon. Her personal experience of relocating to France inspired her to launch Renestance in 2015. And then, seeing how difficult it was for foreign buyers to navigate the convoluted real estate market in France, she pursued a degree in Immobilier (real estate in French).

That Bachelor’s program provided a foundation in real estate law, French taxation, succession/inheritance, property value estimation, building construction, and other information that is essential to a successful purchase. Since obtaining her French brokerage license in 2017, Dennelle has been helping buyers, foreign and French, to find their dream homes and make sound investments. Her mastery of the intricacies of buying and owning property in France sets her apart and makes her the ideal guide for this masterclass.

Dennelle is dedicated to assisting people to settle in smoothly to life in France. Her courses cover not only the essentials buying process but also the practicalities of moving to and living in France.

“Like you, I once dreamed of having my own chez moi  in France. When Alexandre (my French husband) and I decided to buy a flat in Paris, I assumed that speaking fluent French and having lived there already would make the process straightforward. Haha. We were surprised every step of the way by things that appeared incomprehensible and illogical.

Fortunately for you, you can learn from our mistakes and bewilderment. I’ve poured the learnings from my experience, both first-hand and accompanying Renestance’s buyers, into a Buying Property in France Masterclass that turns confusion into clarity, overwhelm into confidence, pitfalls into stepping stones, and dreams into addresses.”

I don't have the money...

The cost of enrolling in the Buying in France Masterclass is a fraction of what you might spend on an individual consultant, solicitor etc… It’s much more cost-effective, offering you significant savings.

This investment isn’t just financial—it’s an investment in your life, and the returns are invaluable.

I can do this by myself!

Yes, when it comes to buying real estate in France, reading books and watching YouTube videos can offer insights, but putting that knowledge into action is a whole different ball game.

The Buying in France Masterclass is meticulously designed in a strategic order to guarantee results. Each module builds on the previous, providing a roadmap for your property acquisition journey. I guide you through weekly exercises, ensuring that you not only gain knowledge but actively apply it in the context of buying real estate.

We tackle the nuances of unexpected reactions or challenges that may arise during the process. This way, we navigate the intricacies together, ensuring you see tangible progress quickly and with certainty. The course is not just about avoiding pitfalls; it’s about making informed decisions that move you closer to your dream property in France.


“We have benefited from two amazing experts` vast knowledge and truly personal advice on several occasions and realized we could not have done it all without them.

Their wealth of experience and recommendations for useful contacts has helped us opening French bank accounts with ease, lodging for long term stay visa, finding our way around property purchase and contacting reliable tradesmen.

Life is much brighter and easier when we have a fantastic back up team like Renestance. Thank you”

“I am so very glad I used Renestance service instead of trying to find a place to live on my own.

France is a unique country with particular ways of doing business and Dennelle and her associates know how to find the perfect place and how to negotiate through the utilities and communications the customer needs.

Dennelle is also very kind, professional, and cares that all goes smoothly. Very happy to have met her and worked with Renestance.”

“I know I would have been crazy to try to do everything myself.

Even if I were fluent in French (I am not), I still would have had a lot of problems because of the differences in how things are done in France versus the US.

Someone would have to have infinite patience and be able to avoid becoming frustrated due to problems and failures if they tried to handle the real estate themselves.”
