Zurich - Relocation Agents?

Hello there

My wife and I are relocating to Zurich from overseas. WE come with no relocation package from our companies (we got a cash sign on bonus instead )

Instead of us trying to arrange for the visit to a few apartments in Zurich, we would like to get a relocation agent to help us schedule the visits and drive us around.

The first time we moved to Zurich we had relocation and was supported by Cartus, but certainly I don't think I want to pay so much for that now.

Anyone has recommendations on free agents who could help us do such arrangement, ie, a 3 days visit in Zurich visiting each day 5 to 10 apartments based on our search criteria for a reasonable fee?

Thanks in advance!

Relocation agents offering their service for free, here in Switzerland? That's obviously something new to me...

Another brainless expat, thank you EU.
Why would anybody offer their service for free? OP, do you work pro bono as well, are you such a nice guy to be able to live solely on love and hugs?

Re: Zurich - Free Relocation Agents?

Clearly, the subject is up for misinterpretation.

I did not mean FREE as in they cost 0, I mean free as if they work for themselves, not for a Cartus, or Crown Relocation or similar.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

Oh ok, independent relocation agent. Thanks for clarifying.

Re: Zurich - Relocation Agents?

I don't know any agents in Zurich but we were in a similar situation with a budget to use for relocation and we used an agent to help in our house search and I felt it was money very well spent .
I am sure this helped us secure the house of choice over the other interested parties and saved us wasting time on unnecessary trips and visits.

Good luck in your house hunt!
