Liked best: How friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable the Renestance staff was.
We will definitely be working with Renestance to help us navigate the intricacies of getting us set up in France.
Renestance is very knowledgeable about the mechanics of immigrating to France and they are the only organization that we know of that can focus on the unique needs of us Americans.
Liked best: Friendly, patient, thorough & accurate services & all promises kept.
Liked best: The complete support during a process that was confusing to me especially with my limited French.
Liked best: Prompt replies and friendly service!! 🙂
Liked best: It saved me a lot of time and effort.
Liked best: Nicole.
With Nicole’s help we both got our Carte Vitale quickly and stress free. Highly recommend them.
Liked best: Thalia’s positive and helpful attitude.
Liked best: The speed of action.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Nicole for all the help and advice she gave us with our Carte Vitale applications. We’ve had our cards for quite some time now and the whole process was exactly as she described. It would have been so much more difficult without her being there to guide us through the different stages. Her support was even more appreciated when I broke my foot a couple of weeks after making the initial applications! I’ve just ordered the ebooks that came free with our package and will have a good read of them because I still need to send all my brown forms back to recoup the money we paid upfront.
So thanks once again for all your help. We really appreciate it 🙂
The binder she put together for me is priceless. It made my time here meaningful.)
Liked best: Nicole was very patient and understanding of my problems
Liked best comment: Quick response to emails
Liked best: It did seem a little expensive at first but in context of the time and support given over a lengthy process it no longer seems that way
I can’t comment generally since I used such a specific service and my experience there was wholly positive. My presumption is that rest of the operation is also run as efficiently. And–even though my French is pretty okay–it’s so much less stressful to deal with important and potential confusing issues in English.
Liked best: Ease and friendliness of working with a knowledgeable English-speaking professional
French public administration is complex and time consuming and I believe that people can and should accept as much help and advice as possible.
Liked best: There’s nothing I didn’t like, so it’s hard to say what I liked best.
Thanks, Jen and Dennelle!
Nicole has taken 99% of the nail-biting and hand-wringing out of my two projects; setting up a ME and getting a French drivers license. Navigating French bureaucracy is a crooked line, and I would surely have given up by now if it were not for Nicole’s guidance and persistence.
Merci beaucoup! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Liked best: Communicating on my behalf with goverment agencies.
I realise I’m privileged to be able to make use of this service, but you guys have been incredibly helpful and professional and have really helped take some of the worry of ‘am I doing things right’ at a very difficult time for me.
Liked best: The incredibly good communication – it was just really helpful to know that there was someone there to answer my questions and guide me through the confusing paperwork!
Liked best: accurate and speedy. How could we improve this service? I think you guys nailed it.
Liked best: Professional and approachable.
Liked best: Quick and easy to understand responses from the team at all times. Made the process and requirements clear.
Like best: Speed of response.
Liked best: Being able to talk in English to someone who was very knowledgeable about the subject.
Dennelle is also very kind, professional, and cares that all goes smoothly. Very happy to have met her and worked with Renestance.
Liked best: Very professional and quick.
In both cases, relevant assistance was provided efficiently in a friendly and helpful manner. If I felt unsure how to deal with some issue related to living in France in the future, I would have confidence in seeking assistance from Renestance in the knowledge that they would, in all likelihood, be able to provide relevant assistance and support, or would know who could if they could not assist directly and personally.
There was complete flexibility on offer from Renestance varying from hand-holding to some gentle guiding in the right direction. Our situation was difficult as we lacked a permanent address to be able to obtain the necessary documents for the vehicle re-registration. However, Nicole continued with our application even when we moved to a new department and we now have our shiny new French number plate!
Thanks for all your help.
I appreciate your partnership and the peace of mind of knowing that you’ll be available to help me through future challenges!
Liked best: Help to navigate the complexities of the online system, quick responses to questions.
Well worth it!
Renestance is helping me to focus my energy to make this dream come true. The first time I visited the website and read Dennelle’s story, I knew this was the company to help me move forward and get to France!
We are difinitely considering using their New Nest Package upon arrival.
Liked best: We were in a state of crisis and Nicole was so reassuring, it was an immediate relief just to contact her.
have all this sorted! And to think that I very nearly didn’t contact you
because I had the impression that you specialised only on retired people
from the UK.
Thank you again for an amazing service – you by far exceeded all my
I spent the following year preparing for the next phase of my life. Renestance went above and beyond in answering all my questions. They explained their New Nest Package and how they would assist me before and after my arrival. In the Fall of 2015, I came over for a reconnaissance visit. They knew of my love for history, so they set me up to visit several areas around Montpellier, especially some Cathar sites. It was very difficult to leave and return to the US.
The Renestance team (Dennelle, Jennifer, & Nicole at the time) explained, in detail, everything I needed to do to prepare for my move. This included finding me a place in Montpellier to reside. I arrived in Aug 2016. I have slowly acclimatized myself into my new environment. I continue to use the services that Renestance provides, especially setting up travel plans in France. Every time I receive one of the packets that Jennifer designs for me, I am amazed on the thoroughness of it. When it comes to administrative matters, Nicole is top-notched. At first I had some difficulties with my TV/Internet services and trying to find an English-speaking physician. I was getting frustrated, but Nicole calmed me down and resolved everything.
Renestance has taken my dreams and made it a reality. They can do the same for you. Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you everyone involved with Renestance (you too Alex).
I would strongly recommend Renestance to anyone considering making the move to France.
With the goal of seeing how livable Montpellier would be for us, my husband and I arrived from the San Francisco Bay Area and spent a month in this beckoning city. Jennifer designed a custom orientation, launching with croissants! Then we started walking. In between sites, we shared delicious desserts and discussed volunteer possibilities . At the end of our time together, she presented an ‘ABéCéDaire,’ a portfolio of who, what and where, which is now my bible for Montpellier. “
Once again, Dennele and Jennifer are a fantastic team with a lot of human touch.
We had been trying to sell a property in France for months. It was extremely difficult, mainly due to not speaking the language and not understanding the legal/sales process in France. Nicole came in and within a day managed to get all the answers needed. She helped us complete on the sale within a week – she managed to complete a process in days which we had tried and failed to in months! I thoroughly recommend the Renestance team. Thanks Nicole for your help!
During all this time, the Renestance team were very professional, courteous, and extremely helpful. If they did not have answers immediately (very rare), they were quick to get them. They helped me to keep focused on my dream.
I arrived in Montpellier one day after my 60th birthday. My dream has become reality thanks to Renestance. There are not enough “kudos” I could give to Dennelle, Nicole, Jennifer, and everyone else associated with this organization. I guess you can say that I have arrived at my “somewhere over the rainbow” thanks to Renestance.
We have had a wonderful stay in Nimes and have created many memories that we will undoubtedly reminisce about for many years to come. It has been a long and sometimes complex journey to get to this point and one which we have thoroughly enjoyed (mostly!). Your efforts in finding our temporary home from home were pivotal in satisfying the Mairie’s conditions and allowing us to marry here and we are truly grateful for your patience, persistence and for often going beyond the call of duty to help us.
