The Robbie Report – Relocation Management Companies

As seen in the Wall Street Journal:

We’ve all read the exciting news about large companies relocating their corporate offices to North Texas. This kind of progress brings thousands of new people to the area, providing an extra boost to our already flourishing local economy.

These moves also provide an opportunity for companies such as Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty to lend a hand in the relocation process.

It can be complex work, however, of critical importance to companies moving from one part of the country to another. Ginny Taylor is our Senior VP/relocation services. “Best schools and neighborhoods generally drive all relocation purchase decisions,” says Taylor, who has worked in the real estate and relocation industry for nearly three decades.

Ginny and her colleagues have developed high quality partnerships with relocation companies assisting employees who are making moves. One of the tops firms that we work with is Paragon Global Relocation.

“These are strategic alliances designed to assist the transferee. To manage and coordinate the process from start to finish,” she says.

The transition may involve intricate details: selecting a broker, getting homes listed and sold as well as securing corporate housing. Sometimes services extend to cultural training, language lessons, finding childcare and more.

Thus, relocation management representatives are an important single point of contact — a “soup-to-nuts” advocate — someone to reach out to throughout the process, and take the burden off the client’s shoulders. “To have the resources to pick up the phone on Christmas Eve when a sale goes through, for instance, and answer the question, ‘What I am supposed to do now?’” says Taylor.

Ginny’s team is focused on this area, educating our agents, helping clients and staying ahead of the growing population curve. I suspect it will only increase. It’s an exciting part of the real estate business in North Texas, and another opportunity for us to help.
