Hors Normes Immobilier was founded by Olivier Dussol.

He worked for ten years in the French Riviera Coast, in Paris and in London in the maritime insurance sector and more especially in the field of yachting insurance. Olivier is passionate with boats, travelling, and contemporary architecture. When he moved back to France, Olivier re-orientated his career to join the fascinating universe of the real estate as a negotiator in an agency specialized in contemporary real estate and cofound in parallel four community web sites dedicated to the vacation rental.

He naturally created Hors Normes Immobilier, which the positioning is marked by the imprint of his experiences in France and abroad, his passion for boats closely connected to the high-end real estate, his special interest for outstanding places and finally his faith in the promising future of the tourism renting as source of land investment




It is a key moment that can both validate the decision to sale or not, but will also will have an influence on the duration of the commercialisation of a good. Hors Normes Immobilier will base its analysis on the statistics of the market; the methodical analysis systematized by the intrinsic characteristics of the good and its knowhow and experience in sales in three practised specialities (Prestige / Unusual / Rental Tourism). Hors Normes Immobilier can also offer you a written estimation of the goods to be sold (Refer to the tab Contact if necessary).

SALES AGREEMENT: Hors Normes Immobilier officiates under exclusive, non-exclusive, or half-exclusive sales agreement. For transparency purposes, Hors Normes Immobilier chooses not to draft its own sales agreements, but to use the official pre-printed sales agreements.

MARKETING PLAN: Hors Normes Immobilier realizes a photo report with quality equipment, drafts a structured and objective descriptive ad, then defines an individualised marketing plan with the owner, depending on the belonging of the property (Prestige / Unusual / Rental Tourism).   The on-line publishing www .hors-normes-immobilier.com, medium of communication benefiting from constant investments on referencing, is also an integral part the communication plan.
