WHat the Clients Say

"Exactly what we needed"

"We have been living in Munich for six months, and still cannot believe we have established another place called home in another incredible city. My husband and I want to thank VERA for the 'practical and emotional support' during our move. Vera’s advice was exactly what we needed during our transition from Dubai. Vera’s knowledge added great value to our experience by connecting us to the back-story of this city, its customs, history and business culture. Her insights provided us with the confidence needed to establish our home. Having the emotional support during a stressful move is key for a better living experience. My heart is now open to the possibilities of enjoying life here in Munich."



Adora L., American, Munich

"The voice of calm in a storm"

"Having met Vera as a new arrival expat to Tokyo, I can best describe her as 'the voice of calm in a storm'. This is my fourth international move and even so, Vera was able to offer me great support and practical tips on adjusting to another country and culture. I only wish I'd met her on my first move! I have no hesitation in recommending Vera as a professional, reliable, knowledgeable and approachable consultant. Her personal experience of expat life and relocation is wide ranging which is undoubtedly useful to draw upon when advising others."


Deborah F., British, Tokyo

"She is simply the best"

"Vera is the reason the first year of my first expat experience went so smoothly. She helped me settle in, answered all of my questions, and provided me with expert insider tips. I felt like I could ask her anything. She was highly professional, yet with a warmth that made me feel I could confide in her.


If you are looking for both practical and emotional support, look no further than Vera. She can help take the stress out of the expat experience, whether you are a first-timer, or have done this all before. She is simply the best!"


Suzanne V., American, Amsterdam

"Your Partner in your Big Adventure"

"Vera has lived in so many disparate places: Germany, Holland, France, South Africa, Singapore, Dubai... It gives her a wealth of practical and emotional experience to share. Being a new expat is a wee bit alarming, even when it is a positive, family decision to make the leap to a new life. We can all do with some guidance and affirmation – and Vera is the person to do that. She is giving and knowledgeable from her travels, her background in hospitality and her training as a consultant. Please feel confident in her being your partner in your Big Adventure, I am so confident in the value Vera will add."
