When we moved to Moscow, we quickly found that the process of renting a flat in Moscow was confusing, with real estate agents who seemed disorganized. These agents also often lacked basic listening and communication skills. This not only created an inefficient process, but also a sense of irritation that somehow the process had slipped out of our control.
The hunt for a home in Moscow often became an exercise in frustration with endless viewings of flats that didn’t fit the blend of budget, interior, or location that we were looking for. And we couldn’t shake the gnawing feeling that somehow someone else was deciding for us where we would live.
With that, we began to study the market, and we learned how to represent ourselves in the search for an apartment. Some friends saw that we were able to do this and asked for our help. They were blown away at how simple we made the process for them. We took the time to listen and understand what they were looking for. After listening, we filtered the available properties on the market to fit what would be the best situation for them.
At the time, we didn’t realize that we were getting into the service of “tenant representation”- a mundane sounding term that would prove revolutionary for the lives of our clients. That is because tenant representation puts you in charge of the search, not us, and not the landlords. It seems obvious and natural, because it is. But we now know that representing you is exactly what makes our real estate service in Moscow unique.
Today we are proud of our rapidly growing list of clients, which includes legal professionals, folks working in the oil industry, professional athletes, university professors, journalists, real estate executives (!) and many more from around Europe, the Americas, Australia, and Asia.
