Settling-in starts when transferee and his/her family accept the job offer and relocate to the city. We together identify schools, neighborhoods and houses to suit client lifestyle. Unique to Nevena, while we drive around to view properties and visit schools, we talk about how to manage relocation’s phases and transition to a new city and culture. We like to see our client THRIVE in both logistics and sofistics.
SCHOOL ASSISTANCE – We help families through the process of identifying and profiling schools that best matches their child’s academic and growing needs. We help them with scheduling appointments and help with the registration.
School search and early child care is one of the main transferee concerns, but they don’t have to worry since there are exceptional educational options in the Pittsburgh metro region. Either they choose public, independent, religious or charter school, they are highly-ranked.
Some transferees start exploring schools at the www.greatschools.com, which is a good way to start their search (as Zillow is a good place to start housing search). More accurate information here.
NEIGHBORHOOD ASSISTANCE – After choosing preferred school districts, we focus on identifying few neighborhoods that will suit transferee and her/his family lifestyle and commute to work tolerance.
Pittsburgh’s 90 nested neighborhoods offer high-quality low-cost living in mostly older Victorian homes and townhouses. The metro area has many excellent livable neighborhoods with newer construction. You can start your neighborhood search online, but the best would be if we have a conversation about different neighborhoods while looking at the map.
