Recommendations for apartment search agents?

Operation HSFAZ (http://www.englishforum.ch/adverts-h...ch-thread.html)is going well, but I don't have much time during the week to search and view apartments so I was thinking about just hiring one of those firms that search out apartments for you and get a commission.

Anybody know of a reputable agency that I can contact? Help is very appreciated, as always.

Re: Recommendations for apartment search agents?

a lot of companies who bring in expats use Primacy. I've heard god and bad so I guess it depends on the agent.

I believe they charge around 4-5k CHF but this usually includes all the setup (finding apartment, contracts, setting up internet, etc)

I guess you could negotiate a better rate but not really sure
