Testimonials

SpencerStuart Zürich

Impeccable flat, all functional, with renewed furnish, in a very nice location in Seefeld. But what makes the whole experience even more positive is the fantastic support from Jennifer, who was instrumental for me in two very critical moments during my stay, reacting fast and providing me the full support when necessary. She goes beyond what is expected and does not measure efforts to make you feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend anyone to make a deal with Jennifer and Swiss Relocation Services.

I moved to Zürich in 2019 to pursue a shiny new job as a SRE Engineer at Google. In order to avoid being taxed in the country of origin on top of the Swiss taxes (we are talking about serious taxes here), I needed to settle my status in a short time frame. The main thing is to find a suitable accommodation, which can be tricky if you do not live in Switzerland (the lenders want you to see the apartment beforehand in order to avoid legal challenges later). And to stay in Zürich area would be a strain for a modest budget available. I found Mrs jennifer Stiers over the internet, where she offers exactly the kind of services I needed. First - very important -- she reassured me that all can and will be in place well within the time limits. Then she organised a complete apartment-hunting safari, 9 viewings in a working day, covering Adliswil, Zürich center, Oerlikon and all the way to Züricher Unterland - as we have indicated an interest in a range of locations. She also handled all the conversations (there are no negotiations when renting, the price is given) and form-filling. Finally assisted with the contract and an actual handover. Furthermore her associate arranged personal liability and healthcare insurances, thoroughly explaining legal requirements and various options. All this was performed well within agreed time frame and with no hidden costs. So, as our business with the Mrs Stiers concluded, our stay in Zürich was oven ready. All of that with a very personal, warm and friendly attitude. I cannot over-recommend her services. She turned, what is by nature a stressful venture, into a care-free and actually pleasant adventure. A year later, as we were looking for a larger apartment on account of COVID-19 and work-from-home situation. Jennifer was also helpful here. She simply stated, "you are stillmy customers" and helped us polish our applications - even though that time, being already experienced and seasoned Zürichers, we searched on our own. Thanks to her good contacts with administrators and homeowners, we will soon be able to move into the larger apartment. We can highly recommend her services.

I from the HR team at Steiner AG would like to thank Jennifer Stiers and her team for their great help. For helping us to find the right apartments/homes in Zurich and its surroundings for our employees moving to Switzerland from abroad. We appreciate all the hard work in finding our new colleagues a home and for taking care of all the aspects that would have been difficult for them like arranging viewing appointments, communicating with the landlord, entrance inspections and legal paperwork. Jennifer and her team have extensive local knowledge and contacts and are a wealth of information about Zurich/Switzerland which helps our employees understand various cultural aspects of their new home town and country. This service is a fantastic help for us in our onboarding process.

After I returned from the US and moved to Zurich to join the brand La Prairie in January 2019. Jennifer assisted me with my home search. Initially, Jennifer helped me identify the ideal location based on my lifestyle. She was dedicated to find me the place that would suit me best. Together, we narrowed down my search to 2-3 districts and new constructions. After a few visits, I found out that Zurich Seefeld was the place to be. Once we visited a contemporary apartment close to the lake, Jennifer was instrumental in supporting my application with the broker. The end-to-end process lasted less than a month. Jennifer has an intimate understanding of what her clients want. Coupled with an outstanding knowledge of the region and rental market place. On top, she has a solid network. Bilingual in English and German, Jennifer is the perfect partner to assist multicultural clients who plan to settle down in Zurich. As an insider, she knows the good restaurants, places to go and best tips to enjoy the Swiss art of life. Today, thanks to Jennifer, I call Zurich home.

I was lucky enough to get support from Jennifer when I came to Switzerland in March 2018. All has been taking care of, with no issues. So, in a few days I got it all done. Anything for my "B" permit application, appartment search, car purchase, insurances and tested my first "Gipfeli"! Thanks Jennifer!

My name is Real Chamberland and I was the VP global engineering for the Propulsion and control division of Bombardier Transportation (a global manufacturer of railway equipment ) from 2008 till 2013. For that position, I was relocated in Zurich, and I hired the company Swiss relocation services owned by Jennifer Stiers. I received an excellent service and personal attention from Jennifer and my family. We could easily be integrated in both a temporary and permanent housing, including all related paper work for immigration. She was also very helpful for the return back to Canada for a new position in 2013 for Bombardier. I would strongly recommend her to any persons/family relocating to that area.

Before looking for apartments: After we moved to Switzerland, we were encountered by the challenge of finding an apartment that suits our location, size and budget. Jennifer was referred to us by a friend. Quickly after the first contact, we met Jennifer and she explained to us the rental property market, the process and what to expect. In few days, she sent us a shortlist of apartments to review and visit. This put us immediately at ease. During Inspection: She picked us up from the hotel and showed us the prospect apartments. She wanted to make sure we were fine and comfortable. After a few days, we landed on the right apartment. She coordinated and facilitated the meetings with the landlord or the onsite managers. She explained to us the detailed paperwork and the next steps. After settling-in: After settling in the apartment, she followed up several times to ensure that all well and we are happy. In summary, Jennifer is punctual, friendly, custom focused and minded, reassuring, engaging and always checking. We do appreciate her services and definitely recommend her to others.

My experience with Swiss Relocation Services GmbH has been enormously positive. As a foreigner moving to Zurich from abroad due to a temporary work opportunity, I could not have asked for a better service since they provide ready-to-move-in apartments. The communication with them was very efficient (even during weekends), so the rental process ran very smoothly. In short, I will definitely contact them again if I ever move back to Switzerland!

My experience with Swiss Relocation is a perfect one. Despite the limitations of the coronavirus and the small baby, which limited me for the house inspection, Mrs. Stiers was able to find a nice apartment for my family. It was quite a difficult case to find a flat for me due to also having pets. Therefore, I am very grateful someone found the flat for me. I would not be able to do that myself without traveling from my newborn child. Jennifer was always very kind and nice to discuss the rentals, insurances, and others. I am looking forward to the flat handover that will be in almost a week.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jennifer on a few projects in the past. Jennifer was an enormous enrichment. Highly professional, efficient and loyal. She always had a solution and a good approach to turn any problems into new options. Again and again with pleasure.

I highly recommend Frau Stiers for helping find an apartment and managing the move out process. I am not sure how we would have done it without her. We hired Jennifer because we heard that it is very difficult to find a home in Zurich - especially with five cats - and it can take a long time. Friends had applied for many apartments without success. She showed us several suitable apartments, including in areas of the city we were not yet familiar with. We got our very first choice in a wonderful neighborhood she introduced us to. We could not have been happier with the help she provided and know we would not have found such a lovely apartment without her help. She also helped us when we left the country by managing all of the move-out process after we left. Moving overseas with a family and five cats is a big task. Frau Ochalek's help in dealing with the apartment and the landlord was invaluable.

I had the pleasure working with Jennifer on my relocation to Switzerland while I was working at a global US based bank. She was instrumental from the months leading to my move, the actual day of the move; and always checking in on how we were adjusting to Swiss life once we were settled. She made us relaxed through the entire transition. She was very thorough and efficient in ensuring all documentation and legality was in proper order, including our housing. She was so helpful guiding us and educating on the Swiss way of living, things to do, transportation, etc. An outstanding level to detail and service. Job well done!
