Miranda Junowicz Bothe is a lawyer, licensed in real estate and the founder of Paris Property Group, a luxury real estate boutique in Paris, France. Kathryn Brown, an experienced business development executive, is the managing director of operations. Together, with their team at Paris Property Group, they specialize in personalized, custom, tailored searches for discerning high net worth buyers and investors.
In a hot, fast-moving real estate market like Paris, real estate professionals focus their efforts on wooing sellers, and buyers are generally left to fend for themselves: There is no central listing system for properties in Paris. A property might be for sale by owner and with multiple agencies at different prices, and the best properties often sell within 24 hours. Listing agencies represent only the seller, there is no duty to disclose flaws, and contracts are in French.
These significant language, cultural, legal and market structure challenges in the Paris real estate market make it imperative to have a trusted advisor representing your interests, helping navigate the process and connecting you with the right resources. Seasoned advice can make the difference between a good investment and a great one. Having representation that is looking out for your interests and seeing you through the process is not only a sound investment strategy – it is peace of mind.
The team at PPG focuses instead on their buying clients with their particular dreams and needs, looking for both a great investment and a place to call home. With their unique approach, they take the time to connect with their clients, to understand their unique package of needs, wants, and hopes for their real estate purchase. They leverage the neighborhood-specific knowledge of the top-notch Paris Property Group to identify the properties, neighborhoods, communities and resources that will best meet those needs.
Ms. Bothe is a magna cum laude graduate in Slavic Language and Literature from UC Berkeley, and received her law degree from Yale. She speaks French fluently, and can hold her own in both German and Hebrew. Before her foray into real estate, Ms. Bothe was a civil rights litigator, a law clerk for a federal judge in California, in-house counsel for a nationwide civil rights and education nonprofit, and general counsel for a global network of brand, management and technology consulting firms. She brings her vast experience, critical legal mind, intuition, and creative, strategic approach to every client and every project.
Ms. Bothe was one of the first agents featured on HGTV’s House Hunters International, and pioneered This Paris Life, the first English-language real estate news and information resource in Paris.
