How to Relocate to Another City
We’ve all experienced the pain and panic of apartment searching, but our client Collin found himself on a particularly wild ride. Collin found out on a Tuesday that he would need to relocate to another city the following week. With no time to prepare, no budget for visiting, and no idea where to start, a friend suggested AptAmigo.
During his first phone call with AptAmigo, our Apartment Locator Zack walked through Collin’s requirements, preferences, and past concerns, taking detailed notes. Then, he sent over a list of apartments that perfectly fit the bill, and Collin narrowed it down to a short list.
Collin got to work packing and preparing for his move.
Behind the scenes, the operations team scheduled a full day of tours with each building. Because they maintain solid relationships with the company’s business partners, they were able to secure the last-minute viewings.
In this case, Collin required virtual tours because he couldn’t visit in person before his move. When this situation arises, we send a team member to each building to take videos, pictures, and walk clients through a virtual tour of each potential apartment.
In less than a week (and from a completely different city), Collin locked down his dream apartment.
Here’s everything Collin had to say about this “Mission (Im)Possible:”
“I had a little less than a week to sort out a place to live before starting a new job in a whole new state.
I made contact with Zack on a Friday and within 30-45 minutes he set up 8 tours site unseen for me.
The team viewed all the places for me by end of the day on Sunday, 8 different places in different neighborhoods throughout Chicago. They sent me videos and details of each place, highlighting the pros and cons of each unit (which was 99% pros as all the places they suggested were very nice and well within my budget).
By Monday, I selected a place and Zack pushed to get me sorted ASAP, as he knew I needed a place locked down by Thursday (my move day). Heading to an entirely different state made this move seem impossible for me, but Zack got me squared away, and by Tuesday I had a place to live.
The team was unbelievably helpful and just all around friendly. I would highly suggest them to anyone needing help moving to Chicago from out of state. I know my next move within the city will happen with the help of AptAmigo. A+ in my book.”
