Our Relocation Department is busier than ever, as companies continually transfer employees and families settle into new neighborhoods before the next school year begins.
Our Relocation team works with you if you are:
To learn how the department’s staff actually works with transferees, companies, and agents to make relocating as smooth as possible, we asked David Foggiano, Vice President and Director of Relocation, to provide case studies of recently completed “relos.”
Will and his young family were being relocated by his employer from Bakersfield to Ventura, about three hours away. Will and wife Kristin loved the idea of moving to the lovely coastal community, but they were daunted by higher home prices, were unfamiliar with the new area, and were a little overwhelmed at the prospect of moving with a preschooler and a baby.
Our Relocation Specialist spoke with Will and decided that the mother-son agent team of Julia and Ryan Bruns in our Ventura office would be the perfect guides for Will and Kristin. Julia is a beloved, veteran agent in the area. Ryan is close in age to Will and Kristin, and very relatable. Both are professional, attentive, and effective agents.
We received the referral from a relocation management company in June, and Will was scheduled to start the new job in Ventura in August. Will and Kristin packed up the kids that weekend and drove to Ventura to start the search. Julia and Ryan were ready for them. After several phone conversations, Julia and Ryan were able to determine the family’s needs and set up several showings.
Nine days after we received the referral, Julia and Ryan wrote an offer for Will and Kristin on a recently reduced, move-in-ready home across from a park for the kids, and just minutes from Will’s new office. Julia and Ryan were even able to negotiate a contingency into the agreement that Will and Kristin sell their Bakersfield home. They closed on the new home in August, with plenty of summer weather left to enjoy their new coastal lifestyle.
