The Pelège Group


30 years already

On the 21st of March 1984, I founded ROCHER HABITAT, rue du Rocher in  the 8th district of Paris with a share capital of 20 000F.

On the 7th of October 1987, this young company had begun to be successful, so I decided to rename it after myself.

It was a risky decision, but I don’t regret it. 

It’s thirty years later, and that’s a long time in the life of a man and a company. The journey has not always been easy, with numerous difficulties, crisis, sinister traps and incessant legislative and regulatory alterations. However in the end, the obstacles were merely side-events.

As the saying goes “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”

Thirty years later, the PELÈGE Group unites 15 companies, encompassing almost all the real estate spectrum: residential transactions, property management, real estate development, tertiary real estate, works management and development, insurance, seasonal and holiday rentals and even   advice on estates matters.

Aware of the Groups responsibility to both its’ faithful clients and the 400 plus employees, and aware that without the support of the Groups financial partners, none of this would have been possible, I am thankful to all those who have helped the Group in becoming what it has become.  

 “Become that which you are”. A lesson for all people, and why not apply it to businesses as well?

Seeing the path already travelled and being proud of the Groups independence, a 100% family owned company, the Groupe can look back and draw strength to look towards the future with confidence and optimism.
