New Yorker, a woman owned business, is a leading relocation consulting company serving the most demanding and complex of destinations -- New York City and the tri-state area. Regarded by corporations and third-party relocation companies as the "special operations unit" for in-bound executives and their families, The Intrepid New Yorker is entrusted with the most critical hires, global assignees and senior people. Powered by a proven strategic model, a skilled and dedicated director and a highly experienced field consulting team, The Intrepid New Yorker succeeds time after time, not merely in finding homes, but actually recreating people's lives, on time, on budget and without stress. Given New York's uniquely high cost of living and extreme terrain -- with hundreds of communities spread over a 75-mile radius of Manhattan -- the "smooth moves" orchestrated by The Intrepid New Yorker are nothing short of miraculous.
What began as a concierge service for busy New Yorkers in the early '80s, evolved into a relocation services business, as the demand for knowledgeable assistance for in-bound executives grew. Corporations were not structured to provide adequate support and placed too much of the burden of area education, orientation and qualified resource gathering on transferees. In recognizing this void, The Intrepid New Yorker substantially improved recruiting and relocation in general, setting the standard for a new specialty called "destination services." In 1999, The Intrepid New Yorker merged with suburban-based Relocation and Real Estate Consulting/Westchester Relocation Services to become a fully integrated tri-state service.
Today, The Intrepid New Yorker boasts an expert consulting team strategically situated throughout New York City and the suburbs of Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Long Island. The Intrepid New Yorker consultants function as caring counselors, investigative reporters, nurturing navigators and pillars of support to make the best matches between families and communities and effect smooth and happy transitions.
The Intrepid New Yorker's pre-planning, local knowledge, critical contacts and resources make it possible for relocation-related transactions to be completed in days rather than weeks, thus reducing myriad expenses associated with home-finding trips, temporary housing stays and excessive fees for realtors, attorneys and education consultants. One failed domestic or international transfer can cost a company thousands in lost revenue and by retaining the Intrepid New Yorker, clients can rest assured that every relocation into the New York Metropolitan area will be seamless and successful.
