    does that mean, that the same property for sale/rent is to incur 15-25% 'premium' for additional language support?

    I guess it means that talk of coin comes way down the list because the clients are high income executives of major international corporations who really want them here - think Caroline Wilson as an extreme example - so cost not an issue. Plus the people who run it probably use their past (or current through husbands) contacts at the target large international corporations so fairly closed shop boutique niche market.

    Business model is low volume, high end, value differentiator being comprehensive quality service and local expertise. In practice, they don't have to do many deals to survive because the ones they do has high dollar value.

    Ricacorp has a vacancy for a trainee property consultant (jobsdb). $20K a month, which includes 'high commission'. Working hours are 9:30am to 8:00pm, with what looks like 4 days off a month.

    Something like Habitat wouldn't be like that I don't think based on the profiles of the staff on their website - they seem like just a bunch of expat housewives killing time (without any intention of saying that is a fact in any way)
