Pre-visit Destination Counseling

We believe that building trust begins with the first phone call that the employee and/or their spouse or partner receives from our Relocation Department. Our first conversation goes beyond mere house-hunting. We spend that time listening to them while discussing their priorities, timeframe, and the type of home and community they would like to find. We also want to know about the employee's lifestyle and the other key elements that will help them feel at home in Houston. We will answer any questions they might have, and ensure that they feel comfortable working with us, and confident in the journey ahead.

Houston Information Packages

We will create customized information packages based on the specific areas of interest and the details that are most important to the employee and their family. The package will include comprehensive information about Houston, as well as details about various neighborhoods, communities, and points of interest. Finding the right school for children is one of the most important factors in a family’s relocation decision. We have information for both public and private schools for our areas we serve.

Area Tours

We want the first impression of Houston to be an enjoyable one, so we take pride in showing employee’s or a prospective candidate the city we know and love. Area tours are a great way for us to introduce them to the Houston area so that they can get first-hand experience of all the amenities that the city has to offer. We will discuss neighborhoods and commute times, as well as show them practical points of interest, such as schools, restaurants and grocery stores. Each tour is customized based upon the candidate’s/employee’s needs and interests.

Home Purchase Assistance

An agent will be selected to assist the employee based on their unique needs and home-finding criteria. The agent will be well-versed in the relocation process and remain with the employee throughout the home purchase transaction. Our agent will be the employee's advocate and will walk them through the entire purchase process, whether they are buying their first home or their next one.

Rental Assistance & Temporary Housing

We can also assist with the leasing of a property, on both a temporary or more permanent basis. We will explain the rental process and discuss the many options that are available to the employee throughout the Houston area. Whether they are looking for a house, townhome, condominium or loft, we are happy to find an ideal property in a location that suits them.

Home Marketing & Home Sale Assistance

Listing a home with the right company can make all the difference when a person is relocating. The listing agent will develop a comprehensive marketing strategy that will maximize the global exposure of the property in order to appeal to the greatest number of potential buyers. A comprehensive market analysis will be completed utilizing the ERC BMA and other proprietary forms. When a home is listed with us, we ensure that you and the employee will be working with an experienced agent who is a market specialist in the neighborhood, and who fully understands the many nuances of a relocation transaction.

As a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, we are associated with the premier real estate firms in every market area which enables us to facilitate the sale of homes anywhere in the United States to maximize the best sold price within the shortest timeframe.

Household Goods Moving & Storage

If needed, we can introduce the employee to a moving company that will assist them with the packing, unpacking, and transport of their personal belongings. We only refer the employee to trusted providers, with strong reputations within the industry at a competitive price.

Inventory Property Management

Our Relocation Team has the experience and resources to manage and maintain a property that goes into corporate inventory. To ease the burden of selling the property, we will handle the payment of all utilities for you, manage the physical upkeep of the property and procure bids and contractors for any repairs that might be needed. You can trust us to be your eyes and ears, notifying you of any potential issues before they can become serious problems.

Group Moves

No matter how small or large, group moves require strategic planning and should be handling with the utmost care. We will create and deliver customized presentations about the Houston market, and be available to do on-site presentations or meet with your employees one-on-one to answer any questions they may have. Our services include Group Move Policy Analysis & Development, Candidate Orientation Tours, Destination and Departure Presentations, Newcomer Packages, Home Sale Assistance, Homefinding Assistance, Rental Assistance, Temporary Living, Cost of Living Comparisons, Household Goods Move and Storage Assistance, and  Settling In Services.
