The company i work for uses Cartus. From my personal experience, they have been extremely professional and helpful during my expat assignment. Im still in corperate housing (for the time being) so i cant speak about their house hunting services.


http://www.cartus.com/ 


Good luck! From what i hear its a burden to find a place. Keep you head up and be persistant!


P.S.One of my coworkers who recently moved into a 3 pc, said she thought it helps to personally call the property manager/owner to express your enthusiasm for the place. As long as all your paper work is neat, it cant hurt...i guess it also doesnt hurt that your a cute girl either ;P haha leverage that!

My company provided me with Harsch Relocation Agents to find a place.  They are quite professional and I found a place within 5 weeks of being here and they didn't show me that many apts, but unfortunately I don't know how much they charge for 'private' relocations.

Hi Emma,


Give Helena and Yael at HR Relocation a call. They've been wonderful during our relocation from London to Geneva, and have helped with everything (even down to dealing with the Regie and completing inspections for us).


Theyre also super friendly and helpful.


Details are here - http://www.hr-relocation.ch/hr/


Good luck with the move,


Rachel

Hi Emma,


I have also used Practical Services. They found a nice place for me in Geneva very easily and fast.


Nevertheless, from my experience with them, they are successful only in Geneva area, if you are looking for a place outside Geneva, it's better to use other agencies.


Good luck.

We are not in Geneva yet so having someone there knowing the market and dealing with the regies is essential for us.

Hey Brenda,


I used this freelancing agent Ms.Lory, she has found suitable accomadations for many people at work. I have the most amazing apartment because of her too, within 2 weeks of contacting her. 
Most of all, she did all the visits for me and I was on holiday when she set everything up. So she might be really helpful since you're not in Geneva yet. You can message me if you want her number.


Good luck!
