All the Right Moves.
You invest a lot in your employees. At McKenzie Drake, we understand the value of successful employee relocation. And we work diligently to ensure that every relocation turns out well.
Under the supervision of Suzanne Rivera, broker and president of McKenzie Drake, our licensed agents use experience and a thorough knowledge of the market to pair each employee with the ideal living situation. And we’re good at what we do. Over the last 13 years, Suzanne and her team have moved more than a thousand families to Houston, in the process establishing a well-deserved reputation for successful relocations.
The Right Location.
When it comes to finding a place to live, everyone has his or her own set of priorities. An executive with a family might want a house in a highly rated school district or close to the office, for example, while a single engineer may be more interested in a luxury apartment near an active social scene.
At McKenzie Drake, we take the time to get to know each of our clients personally. With our needs-assessment questionnaire, we gather valuable information about individual preferences and desires.
The Right Home.
As licensed real estate agents under the supervision of a dedicated broker, the professionals at McKenzie Drake offer Houston companies a full spectrum of real estate services including buying, selling, leasing, temporary housing, apartment locating, and settling-in services. As the employer, you establish the parameters of each employee’s relocation, and we find housing that meets those specifications.
As relocation specialists, we pride ourselves on knowing the market. And we can help each of your employees determine the housing solution that works best for them.
Leasing is an ideal option for the executive or expatriate on a temporary assignment who wants more space for family or pets. We can help your employee lease a comfortable and exclusive condominium, townhome or single-family home in a neighborhood that suits his lifestyle. A lease means no closing costs and no chance of having to sell a home should the employee be transferred to another market.
In a city with more than 3,000 complexes, finding an apartment can be a daunting process. At McKenzie Drake, we know the multitude of amenities available and we can recommend the best apartment choices for every lifestyle. What’s more, we understand budgets and can direct your employee to the apartment that fits his wallet as well as his personality.
An attractive alternative to extended-stay hotels, temporary housing provides your employee with a place that feels like home and space for visiting family. Rather than living out of a suitcase, your employee gets a furnished apartment with an “everything included” rental package complete with high-end furniture, linens, cookware, electronics, cable, Wi-Fi, décor, parking, washer/dryer and utilities.
Buying or Selling a Home
If your company or employee prefers to purchase rather than rent, McKenzie Drake can help.
Our Realtors are familiar with neighborhoods all over the greater Houston area and can help your employees find those that meet their needs. From Katy To Sugarland, West University to The Woodlands, we have helped countless clients to buy and sell homes in neighborhoods all over town.
