    relocation specialists

    Anyone used the "relocation specialists" offered by the various moving companies? Are they glorified real estate agents or is there an advantage to hiring them because they offer extra services?

    in my experience, you need to be careful, because often times they're just pretty much opening a book & reading off the headlines. they won't be in a position to tell you about 'real life' in hk- you know, where do you go if you need something, how to arrange housing, where to be for the best experience, etc. i know quite a few people who've had bad experiences with these services @ moving companies.

    that said, there are some companies that are fantastic. i'm using prumerica right now (my company has used them for a while) and have been really impressed. i think that you probably want to get referrals as opposed to just opening the phonebook & getting a number.
