What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

If you are moving to a new area, especially if you are moving to a new country, you should contact a Relocations/Orientation company to help you know what to expect in the new area, and how to prepare for the move. KOLL Relocations sent me pre-move information and provided me with settling-in information, including a city tour and a complete guide book. The consultants were very helpful.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

I am in a single family dwelling with a pool. It is typical of most expat housing.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

KOLL Relocations found me a great house with many extras, and within my budget!
