Busy executive looking to relocate family and needing help with settling in
When the Financial Director of an international company was relocated to Coventry he needed a prime country property within a reasonable commute of his children’s new schools and his place of work.
Over a period of four months Fish Home Finders previewed many properties and prepared a shortlist, resulting in two short viewing sessions with the client to save him a great deal of time. At the second session he selected a property which was right for his family’s lifestyle.
Fish Home Finders negotiated a substantial discount off the asking price before overseeing the lease negotiations. When his family arrived we were asked to continue to support them to settle in to their new surroundings, including ongoing liaison with the landlord, advising on language courses and medical advice. We also provided a local information pack for the family on their arrival which included activities for the children based on their interests, such as local sailing and tennis clubs.
“We are a French family and moved with our three children. The Richardson’s had prepared several viewings before we moved and had selected the houses with our criteria. All were matching our wishes and we finally found a lovely home close to the school and not too far from my husband’s office. In this area, it’s quite difficult to find a large house to rent and I don’t think we would have been able to find one without their advice! They also managed to negotiate a big discount and for a gardener to be included free of charge, as the house had a large garden.”
“They gave us lots of information about the area and were in charge of the inventory before our arrival. They also got in touch with the council, the gas, electricity and water suppliers when we arrived. They were very supportive during the first months in a foreign country and found solutions when problems raised.“
“For us, it was fantastic to have Heather and David to get things sorted out and we recommend them highly!”
