Sally Lismore has a smile that would put anyone at ease. Moving to a new country is daunting and Lismore Relocation takes care of paperwork, research, and problem-solving related to relocating. We caught up with Sally. Read on to take advantage of an exclusive discount (and lunch) she is offering our readers.

How did you start?
Twenty-five years ago, Switzerland became my new family’s new home. I met a relocation consultant and immediately knew that this was the perfect job for me. I'm still loving every moment of guiding others through their Swiss experiences.

How did you get into the business of relocation?
An ad in a magazine caught my eye, and just days later, I stood outside the doors of a major relocation company. With a beaming smile and my brain in "French mode," I walked in and, to my delight, walked out with the job.

What is the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome?
5 years ago, I co-founded a relocation company with a partner, as initially hesitant to venture out on my own. Looking back, I realize that this decision allowed me to learn and grow in ways I might not have experienced solo. Now, armed with confidence and a profound understanding of the industry, I am ready to embrace new challenges independently.

What are your plans for the future?
I take immense satisfaction in assisting not only with initial arrivals but also guiding people through the twists and turns of Swiss life. This includes local moves, helping individuals secure their dream homes, and for some holiday homes. Our goal is to be more than a relocation service; we aspire to be a constant ally, offering support and solutions that extend beyond the traditional boundaries of the industry.

Adapting to the ever-changing trends in the relocation industry has been a transformative journey for me and I have adapted and embraced the opportunity to diversify our services.  What started as aiding newcomers to Switzerland has evolved into a comprehensive support system throughout individuals' entire Swiss experiences.

What is your favourite product and why?
While I genuinely enjoy working on all the services we offer, there's a unique satisfaction that comes with overseeing a full relocation package. The process of helping a family not only find a home but also assisting with school choices and supporting them as they immerse themselves in Swiss life is incredibly fulfilling for me.

Witnessing a family or individual settle into their new life, with a sense of comfort and excitement, is the ultimate reward.

What clients are saying about Lismore Relocation

We can't say enough good things about our experience with this company and Sally in particular. We moved with three young kids mid-school-year during the pandemic. With Sally's help, we cleared all the (confusing, changing) administrative hurdles with minimal pain. I was especially grateful for her experience with children and schooling — her knowledge was invaluable as we were trying to wrap our heads around the Swiss schooling system. The process went as smoothly as we could have hoped, thanks in large part to her. — Kate (US expat)

Sally Lismore was an absolute miracle worker finding our dream ‘home with a view’ in La Côte area. Greatly appreciated the professional approach and vast knowledge of the property market, allowing us to make the right decision! — Els M.
