Finding a befitting buyer for a one-of-a-kind property takes an extensive, focused, global approach to ensure the property’s shown to the widest possible audience of potential buyers.

Relocation Services

Whether you’re new to Los Angeles or just moving to a new part of the city, we provide Relocation Services designed to make your transition as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

Experienced Guidance: We have intensive knowledge of the city and its diverse neighborhoods, and we truly love sharing information about schools, sports, activities, traffic patterns and transportation options, best stores and restaurants, etc.

Availability: We work days, evenings and weekends to accommodate our clients’ busy schedules.

Transportation: We pick up clients and take them on neighborhood tours as well as introduce them to local attractions.

Productivity: Instead of searching the internet, making phone calls and spending hours/days looking at potential homes, we quickly match a client's criteria with available properties so they most efficiently find the perfect new residence.

Rental Inventory: Locating options, scheduling tours, negotiating leases - if clients prefer to lease before buying to test a locale’s fit or to make sure the job is right, we will ensure they find the most befitting home to rent.

Remote Virtual Services: If/when clients are unable to visit Los Angeles prior to their move, we provide virtual tours by shooting video footage of home(s) and neighborhood(s).
