The company

Founded in 1977 at the instigation of Louis Fragnière, an entrepreneur with an insatiable curiosity, for more than 45 years the real estate agency Verbel has been making its mark in the real estate landscape of the Lake Geneva region.
Verbel is a trusted local agency which from the beginning chose quality over quantity. And for good reason! Louis Fragnière and his son gambled on the uniqueness of the region and won that wager. Today the company has grown into four offices which share identical values. They all follow the same imperative: to strive to always do better while keeping its clients' interests at heart. Through this choice, the agency has developed strict requirements for quality and efficiency, one of the cornerstones of its success. 

And yet opting for quality is not an easy choice! The agency therefore designed a model enabling it to accurately respond to each request and guarantee the same quality of service in each of its branches. The Nyon, Geneva, Montreux and Lausanne agencies are as different as they are similar. They are different in terms of the level of expertise required for each local area. This is because the real estate context, the key players, the client requests and the opportunities differ greatly from one city or region to another! Accordingly, each agency acts as a ready-to-wear house, offering tailored services to its clients. Nevertheless, each agency is part of the same ecosystem, sharing a common philosophy which establishes quality as the standard alongside the shared key values of discretion, integrity, efficiency and proximity. 

For 40 years, the agency has successfully followed this model! It is on these solid foundations that Oliver Fragnière is breathing new life into innovation within the company, essential for handling new requests in an ever-changing real estate environment. Behind the scenes, the question is always: how can we handle new requests while ensuring an ever-increasing quality of service?
