Over the years, Know-it-all passport has received numerous recommendations from clients who have been fortunate to receive help from one of the many relocation agencies operating in this region.  In most cases, these clients have chosen to settle in Switzerland and have needed specific help in working their way through the vast maze of Swiss rules and regulations.

However, if you work in Switzerland, but have chosen to live in France, you will find that much of this help is irrelevant as you learn to understand the particular nuances of this country, which has its own peculiar set of customs.

Filling this gap in the relocation market is an agency that specializes in helping new arrivals settle into neighboring France.  Located in Thoiry, NJ Relocation comprises two full-time relocation consultants, Stephanie Werner Janssens, and her mother-in-law, Nadine Janssens, who work together to provide a credible support network, that works closely with real estate agents, and local schools and suppliers in the Pays de Gex and Haute Savoie regions of France.

With over 15 years experience servicing the needs of “cross-border” workers, NJ Relocation provides a personal service that is carefully defined to meet the needs and expectations of its clients.  Their consultants are caring and flexible and focus on delivering a service that is professional and customized for an individual’s specific needs, working in the evenings and at the weekend as required.  Click here to see a list of some of the popular services offered by the organization.

The company will work with both private individuals and employers, who are keen to see their new employees settle into the region as quickly and smoothly as possible.  

One major client in Geneva, told knowitall.ch, “Since 2004, NJ Relocation has been our No. 1 Relocation Agency in France.  The services provided include orientation tours, accommodation search, school finding and registration, connection to all necessary utilities including land line and internet, which sometimes in France can be challenging, getting to know the area, with information on shopping, sporting and leisure activities, etc. NJ Relocation has provided excellent services to all our employees, being successful in securing accommodation in line with their wishes and budget in a tight housing market.”

One Merck employee, Ewen Sedman, told us, “When I arrived in Geneva, NJ Relocations were assigned to support the identification of a property in neighbouring France.  Their service was both highly efficient and friendly.  They rapidy located several options for me and guided me ever step of the way through the process of settling in to the French community.  As can be expected, this process was associated with some challenges due to the language barrier, but NJ Relocations were right there by my side whenever I needed them.  They seem to take personal pride in settling their customers into the community, and have remained in touch far beyond the contracted period.  Their service was truly excellent, their knowledge of the region second-to none, and their commitment to client satisfaction unsurpassed in my experience.  I would not hesitate in recommending their service to any families arriving into the region.”
