Katie Hanson Relocation to Charleston

Relocating can be an abrupt and time sensitive life event. Katie came to the Auker Group in July 2017 after finding out she would be moving from San Diego to Charleston, SC. Her first plan of action was putting her current home on the market. The Auker Group was happy to help Katie sell her home in San Diego in a timely manner. To prepare for Charleston, Katie did some house hunting on her own side, browsing listings online when she realized she needed more help. Katie reached out to Drew to help her find a real estate agent in Charleston, SC.

“When I moved from San Diego to Charleston, South Carolina, I knew Drew would be the one to help me sell my home in San Diego, but I had no idea where to start looking for an agent in my new city.” – Katie Hanson

Finding a Relocation Real Estate Agent Across the Country

Katie didn’t know where to begin looking for a new real estate agent. She had never lived on the East Coast and didn’t know where to start. How could she find someone she could trust? She enjoyed working with Drew and appreciated his style of relationship based quality of service. Drew connected with LeadingRE to help Katie find the perfect real estate agent in Charleston. Taking the time to give professional interviews to other real estate agents, Drew connected with Alicia Mendocino, a partner of his residing in Charleston. Drew took the time to interview Alicia before connecting her with Katie in order to ensure their personalities would be a good match. This was a match made in heaven for Katie—she loved working with Alicia.

When searching for her relocation REALTOR®, Katie wanted an agent who was native to Charleston to help her since she was new to the area and didn’t know much about it. Even before Katie moved, Alicia was helping her. Alicia helped Katie find a short-term apartment in the area to live in until she found the perfect home to buy. In addition, Katie enjoyed working with Alicia because she reminded her so much of working with Drew.

“Once we started working together she reminded me so much of Drew. She threw an Oktoberfest party. She’s that kind of person, like Drew, who is building a community.” – Katie Hanson

Katie was happy with the results of working with Drew and finding a relocation agent in Charleston. It’s hard to move to a brand new city without having any local friends or colleagues to depend on to help you through the moving process. Working with a relocation agent referred by Drew can help any client feel secure in their move.

Working with Two Agents at Once

Although Katie was moving to Charleston, The Auker Group still regularly checked in with Alicia and Katie to ensure her relocation was moving along smoothly. Drew and Alicia worked together to make sure they were on the same page of Katie’s transition which Katie found very comforting and helpful. Katie just had to sit back and relax while Drew and Alicia worked together without needing to be the middleman between the two.

“I would definitely recommend this process if you’re moving to a new city. Without any local contacts in my new city, I was flying blind. Drew’s guidance made everything easier.” – Katie Hanson
