WHO AM I and WHAT DO I PROVIDE ?


SOS ANGLO  - helping the English in France
My name is Valérie Roger.

 

 

who am i?

 

I am a French lady based in the Mayenne department and the aim of my business is to help the English-speaking community with their French experience. This may be anything from a simple translation to very specialized secretarial, relocation and administrative work.

 

My business was born from the love of helping people and a passion for the English language. The business was established 10 years ago, and since then has flourished, as you can see from my client testimonials.

 

What locations do I cover?

 

I work in the areas of 53, 61, 35, 50, 72, 85, and 14 but I can travel anywhere in France. My assistance is professional, friendly and I am proud to say that my discretion and reliability are second to none.

 

Day after day, I try to solve problems, arrange situations and make life easier for the expats or those who own second homes. I am reliable and efficient and  have helped a great many people by solving all sorts of issues that they found too complicated to solve on their own.

 

For me, no job is too small or too big. I enjoy the challenge of cutting through the red tape and finding the most satisfactory outcome for each of my clients.
