Athlete Relocation Requires Research

slide3 A typical relocation scenario for the average American consists of researching new areas and finding out about livability, neighborhoods, conveniences, schools, etc.  It will also consist of many house-hunting ventures, driving around looking at different homes, getting a feel for them, and finding the one that speaks to you on a personal level.

Not so for a professional athlete facing athlete relocation.

At we speak to quite a few wives of professional athletes because, let’s face it, the wives are usually the ones left with the relocation headaches after their husbands have relocated to a new team.  Often times, this is a very stressful situation for the wives.  They are left with the job of placing their current home on the real estate market for sale. They are the ones who will find a new home to live in thousands of miles away, and they are the ones who must find suitable schools for their children and a safe neighborhood that they can call their new home.

But it does not have to be stressful, and for the past decade, the pros at have been taking the stress out of athlete relocation for the spouses and families of our professional athlete clients.

Here is what happens:  we meet with the athlete and his wife.  We hear their needs.  We ask questions for clarification, and then we spring into action.  We take care of the sale of their current home. We find suitable housing for them in the new city.  We do the research regarding schools and amenities, and we do diligent research regarding taxes and other financial considerations.  We arrange for the transportation of their vehicles and household possessions, and we do it all discreetly and professionally.
