Frederic Lecoq and Thomas Elisian met in 1999 when they were interns at an agency in New York, where they got the idea of importing the furnished rental concept to Paris. It was not very common in 2001 when they made their debut, and it has been a success ever since.
From the time it was founded, Paris Attitude focused on developing its Web presence to reach out to an international customer base.
Ten years ago, Paris Attitude only had 20 apartments in its portfolio. It has 7,000 today. This property portfolio has become more demanding and more diverse to meet constant changes in demand.
One has family ties to business, and the other took over the helm of this quickly-growing young company. These two thirty-somethings met at their first job in New York, and they have not lost their flair for all things cosmopolitan.
This complementary duo has played a big role in making the company a success, in the upper echelons of its sector, alongside the dynamic, internationally-minded team built up over the years.
Backed by this success and its expertise in furnished rentals, in 2007, Paris Attitude created a branch dedicated to luxury apartment sales in Paris.
Paris Attitude Vente works mostly with investors who wish to buy a pied-à-terre in Paris that they can rent out while they are out of town.
