Case Study: Single female professional relocating with work, looking to rent an apartment in Birmingham city centre
Our client was looking for a city centre apartment close to her place of work in central Birmingham following a relocation from abroad.
Fish Home Finders thoroughly searched the market and spoke with all the agents to arrive at a shortlist of the most suitable properties to view. As our client was unfamiliar with the area we also carried out a familiarisation tour of the city a couple of days earlier to provide an overview of the area and property options available.
We helped the client to assess the pros and cons of each property and at the end of day two a shortlist of three properties was drawn up in order of preference. We then liaised with the agent on the client’s preferred choice, negotiated a reduction in the monthly rental fee and secured the property – a high quality apartment in a small, quiet and secure development within 10 minutes walk from the client’s place of work and city centre amenities.
“At first I thought it wouldn’t be necessary to view more that 4-5 apartments, as that was the maximum of viewings I ever did in the past to find a flat in Germany. Back then I never managed to view more than 3-4 apartments on one weekend… which is probably the reason why I always ended up with a flat which involved some compromise in terms of location, overall condition, size or price.”
“Having Heather and David as Relocation Agents changed my way of thinking with regards to finding a new home. In the first place they did an excellent job in narrowing down what I was looking for and presented me an excellent choice of apartments. The viewings itself were also a great experience. Over two days we viewed a number of apartments which wouldn’t have been possible without Heather’s and David’s help and their determination to find me the perfect place to live. But not only did they arrange and accompany me on the viewings, they also did a great job in summarising the pros and cons of every apartment which was a great help to me in making my final decision.”
“The apartment I finally chose ticked all the boxes without having to make any compromises. I’m very happy that everything worked out so perfectly. Many thanks again for all your help. I wouldn’t have found this wonderful apartment without you.”
