Leslie and Pierre, new members of the Chamonix Sotheby’s International Realty team

The Chamonix Sotheby’s International Realty agency has just welcomed two new recruits: Leslie Mottin as Office Manager and Pierre Fournier as Property Consultant. Both originally from the region, they evoke their professional journeys and their attachment to the valley during a joint interview.


Can you tell us about your respective career paths?

Leslie: “After studying for a DUT TC Montagne (Marketing specialised in the mountain sector) including 2 years working for the Compagnie des Guide de Saint-Gervais, I naturally evolved within the company for 18 years as a manager in the “High Mountain and Travels” domain.
I then decided to transpose all my management, organisation, and social skills into another equally dynamic and exciting domain: luxury real estate.”

Pierre: “After studying architecture and languages, I worked for an airline in Geneva, Switzerland for 5 years. With this professional experience in hand, I then naturally moved on to my field of choice: real estate.
Being passionate about architecture and design, I also wanted to keep in touch with an international customer base. This domain was therefore ideal to start a new chapter in my professional life!”
 


What prompted you to join the Chamonix Sotheby’s International Realty team?

Pierre: “Joining Sotheby’s Chamonix International Realty was obvious to me. Originating from the region, the international reputation of the Sotheby’s network allows me to learn and develop my skills alongside a team of experts and enthusiasts.”

Leslie: “It was a friend who works at Chamonix Sotheby’s International Realty who contacted me to inform me that Lionel and Sonia, the agency’s managers, were looking for a new person to fill the Office Manager position.
We both have a similar career path, and she convinced me to apply. After applying and passing the interviews, here I am on the team!”
 


What is your role within the agency?

Leslie: “My role is to ensure the proper functioning of the agency and coordinate work with everyone we work with, suppliers, partners and the Chamonix Sotheby’s International Realty team.

Here are some of my assignments:
- organisation of events
- schedule management and reporting
- follow-up of sales records,
- organisation of meetings,
- reception and communication management

It is a strategic position with many different aspects to it!”

Pierre: “As a Property Consultant, my role is to support sellers and buyers throughout the process of selling or buying their prestigious real estate.
I am attentive so that I may meet their project demands. Prospecting and visiting properties are also an integral part of my work at the agency.”
 


Can you describe what you like the most about Chamonix?

Pierre: “Chamonix offers a high quality living environment: the entire valley’s rich environment, be it in summer or winter, allows all its inhabitants to take part in many activities throughout the year.”

Leslie: "It’s hard to say. Being a native of Chamonix, it is where I have all my memories, my family, my friends, the mountains… which is what I like about it.”
