Preview trip/Awareness tour
Before making decisions take a look at your new destination. The tour takes approximately 2 to 3 hours. Information about the town, its different districts, lake communities and tax-rates are explained. Like every country, Switzerland has its own set of customs, etiquette, rules and regulations. We make our clients familiar with everyday life in Switzerland, and give useful tips.
Find and advertise apartments
Are you staying in a hotel before starting your new job? Or would you rather live in a comfortable nicely furnished and fully equipped flat? We are happy to find a temporary accommodation in Zurich or surroundings that suits your needs.
You can advertise your apartment or house in order to find new tenants.
Home Staging is the art of decorating a home to sell quickly or rent and for more money on the real estate market. Home stagers set the stage for potential home buyers to imagine how they could live in a property and make it their home. This can be as “simple” as rearranging what the home seller already has. Or it can include bringing new furniture, lamps, accessories and art to make the home more appealing to buyers or potential tenants. The property can target a 15 % higher sales price.
Welcome to your new home! The search for a new home begins 6 to 8 weeks prior to the clients actual move to Switzerland. We arrange and coordinate appointments with owners and property management companies. The client is accompanied by us while viewing the properties, providing assistance as an interpreter and conveying essential information. Since we know from experience which situations may arise in a foreign country, we help avoid unpleasant situations in a diplomatic and creative way. The client is shown up to 10 properties within approximately 1-3 days (depending on the package chosen), carefully selected according to his criteria. Three properties that most appeal to the client should be selected. We process the applications for the chosen rentals. Since the market for apartments and houses in and around Zurich has become very tight and apartments usually go very fast, quick decision-making is called for to enhance the chances of getting the apartment or house that suit the client best. Due to our experience we have best relationships to property management companies and owners of flats. We coordinate next steps with the property owner or the housing management company, check the rental contract and take all necessary steps to ensure a smooth transfer.

A new country, a new social security system. In Switzerland certain forms of insurance are expected and mandatory such as health insurance. You, or specifically your income, is partially protected in case of accident or illness caused inability to work. In case of illness often only 55% of wages are covered. We would be happy to look at your personal situation with you. We also offer all necessary forms of protection such as household, building and private liability insurance. Our advice is inclusive and competent.
