How we make it happen.

The Relocation Services team brings decades of experience and unmatched connections to every aspect of your corporate move. With a high-touch, white-glove approach, we customize relocation programs that meet the goals and objectives of every corporate client, in industries that range from hospitality and manufacturing to healthcare, telecommunications, energy and more. By focusing on what matters to you — competitiveness, cost efficiencies, recruiting, retention — we are your partner every step of the way. Our unique approach to the entire process — from our initial contact with the transferee to their completed relocation — is uniquely valuable to a company’s greatest assets: its employees.

Our dedicated and certified team of relocation professionals brings incomparable experience, availability and accountability to our clients and their transferees. We provide the framework and resources our clients need, from locating the perfect homes to finding the best dry cleaners in town. And, as a division of North Texas’ most trusted, most esteemed real estate brokerage — founded in North Texas in 1960 — we offer a depth and breadth of services that are respected in the industry. That, combined with our affiliation as part of the Sotheby’s International Realty global network, means we have unmatched resources to serve a wide range of clients. Just one example? The network offers hundreds of connections wherein brokerages around the world refer clients to each other — knowing that the service every client receives will be world-class.

Among many awards and accolades, our Relocation Services division has won a prestigious Silver Award from Aires, the corporate-relocation specialists, for achieving perfect scores on every satisfaction survey in the third quarter of 2021. That is five out of five stars — from every client.

Companies choose the Relocation Services division of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty because we combine a fresh approach to relocation with a strong track record of success. We create customized, flexible programs and deliver extraordinary customer service — every time.

Testimonial

The value they place on the customer experience is priceless. They are experienced, responsive and flexible. I can always count on them to support our clients needing more comprehensive resources for relocation around the U.S., which includes everything from home marketing to destination services. The best part is they are scalable, which provides a more personalized service for the Human Resources practitioner managing the program, to make it a better onboarding experience for the candidate and the family relocating.

- Bruce W. Waller, vice president, corporate relocation, Armstrong Relocation & Companies

Relocation

Let’s get started.

The first step is learning about your company’s existing policies and relocation program. Once our team knows what you currently offer and where any ‘pain points’ may be, we customize a program that meets your specific needs and provides smart, cost-effective solutions.

We assist our corporate clients in creating a program that strategically fits their recruiting, retention and overall relocation objectives. Our consulting services include researching, reviewing and benchmarking corporate relocation policies to provide an in-depth analysis with recommendations to meet your specific needs.

How do you connect us with the right people to ensure a successful move?

Because Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty has been the real estate leader in North Texas since 1960, we have long-standing relationships with top-level suppliers who work as our partners in meeting relocation needs. We also work with trained and certified relocation brokers who have dedicated relocation departments that can provide the highest-quality service.

How do you assist companies looking to reduce costs?

Our Relocation Services division reviews your current policies and previous exceptions to determine what offerings may be outdated and which costs are out of proportion. We focus on creating customized solutions that combine financial value and high customer satisfaction. We can also design pre-move budgets that allow you to manage your costs from the very start. We also provide clients with a full report of relocation expenses and the expected taxes.

What make the Relocation Services division of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty so different?

As a top affiliate of one of the oldest and most reputable luxury brands in the world — Sotheby’s, founded in 1744 — we are well-versed in working with people who expect high-quality, high-tech, high-touch service. With our experience, reputation and innovative approach, we offer customized services and the reach of a global force. We are the fresh approach to relocation.

Exceptional Services

We move you.

Our unique boutique approach gives every relocating employee a seamless and efficient relocation. From the initial contact and ongoing communications to the final days of unpacking their household goods, your employees have our Relocation Services team standing beside them, serving as the single point of coordination throughout their entire move. We understand the art of extraordinary service — and we provide that service to each one of your employees.

Our Relocation Services team schedules a personal conference call with each transferee, if desired, to go over things in detail. We love this opportunity to meet the transferee and their spouse or partner, to discuss any questions or concerns they have surrounding the benefits contained in their relocation policy. We never forget that the entire family is relocating, not just the transferee.

Our services range from assisting the transferee with selling their current home to arranging the transport of furry family members to the new home to finding a contractor to set up the family’s basketball court. If the transferee has a question, we find an answer.
