A DEDICATED & PASSIONATE TEAM
We are at your side: with our knowhow, experience and a lot of passion!
The Red Relocators are the successors of HamburgRelocation. HamburgRelocation was estbalished as a single person company in summer 2011. In spring 2014 we have teamed up with Angelika Breyne and shortly thereafter with Kathrin Heinemann. Mid 2014 it became more and more evident that the business model would need a nation-wide approach in order to be sustainably profitable. As a result we have built teams in Germany's major urban centers and searched for a new name. Now we employ between 12 and 19 Relocation Managers dedicated to the high quality and efficiency incorporated by the Red Relocators.
We chose the name The Red Relocators in honor of the city were our company history began: Hamburg. The city logo shines in bright red and Kerstin Luong is true Hamburg Girl at heart. Red also represents dynamic and that’s what we stand for. Fast reactions, efficient operations and always one step ahead. That’s us!
Parallel to the new name we also changed the legal form of the company into a GmbH. Since 2019 we are also a full member of the European Relocation Association (EURA) and therefore have access to the latest developments in the industry, benchmarks and trends as well as the worldwide network of its international members.
Relocating in a new city or even a new country is a huge challenge for everyone facing it. Concentrating on a new working environment and new professional tasks makes the pressure even more difficult. To feel comfortable in new surroundings, both areas of live, private and professional, have to be aligned fit the individual needs.
Both areas are interdependent. Only who is at ease with his private life, has found a new home and social life and whose family was also able to integrate well into the new surroundings, will be able to successfully deliver on the job. Neglecting these facts most likely ends in a professional reorientation.
Some of our consultants also lived abroad as expatriates with their families and therefore know how important an active and effective support can be in the first weeks in a new city or country. Now once back in their home towns, which they love and are most familiar with, they have the eye for the attractive things that the city has to offer to the new citizens.
We do certainly not list random facts about specific neighborhoods or potential objects. We rather consider it our duty to reflect the needs and prospects of our clients and combine them with the flair and spirit of the suiting part of town.
To lift the weight of the countless organizational details is one thing but to help people to truly arrive in one place and become a part of their new city is what makes us thrive and fills our hearts and is the most rewarding in our daily work.
