20. Relo & Talent Acquisition
Since the easing of pandemic restrictions, there's been a strong uptick in corporate mandates to provide international relocation assistance - especially in support of #TalentAcquisition projects. This new trend has a strong connection to how Christine and I started our international relocation firm, Saunders 1865 - The VIP Relocation Company. In this episode, Tony talks about the firm's very first corporate relocations which were of vital importance to the employer who retained Tony's company.

16 The COVID pandemic has sent the UK housing market into a frenzy. What's going on?
The COVID pandemic has had an unexpected effect on the UK housing market. There's been a mad rush to escape to rural locations with numerous takers chasing a dwindling number of homes in the countryside. In this episode, Christine and Tony (co-owners and founders of Saunders 1865 - The VIP Relocation Company) discuss what led to their decision to move from central London (Kensington area) to the base of Bredon Hill in the rural Cotswolds.  Since then, there's been a stampede, with multiple people chasing the same home, leading to a real estate boom that nobody ever expected. What's going on?  What will this do to the international relocation business?  What do you think?

5 - What’s does ANY of this have to do with RELOCATION?
Okay, so I felt I had to do a quick episode to clear up the confusion we've caused.  Most peeps in the UK equate relocation professionals with property search - think programmes like Location Location Location.  But we've mainly been talking about home sale assistance.  In this short episode, I explain why.

In episode 3, Tony & Christine continue the story behind the start of their relocation business, which started with an out of the blue call from Canada.
