Bizimle Tanışın

Our Areas Of Expertise


Relocalist has great expertise and experience in finding the right accommodation to suit your tastes and needs, when you come to Istanbul. We have bilateral agreements with well-known real estate consultancy companies which have vast portfolios in the city. In addition, Relocalist can also act as a real estate consultancy company, for it has strong connections with many of the landlords owning flats, including those in areas where Expats mostly live. Furthermore, we can recommend you some property to buy and sell for investment purposes.


Residence and Work Permits are crucial for every non-Turkish person who intends to work in Turkey. The government always launches a new law and even companies which are specialized in Residence and Work Permits consultancy get lost among provisions because they are cancelled and amended frequently. On the other hand, the process has changed this year together with the state departments that are involved in granting the approvals for applications.


Relocalist also provides services in any area of customer needs and preliminary information. Those services cover areas like Moving, Storage, Furniture Supply, Insurance, Security, School Search, Cultural Orientation, Bank Account Opening, Turkish Driving Licence, Concierge Services, Pet Relocation and Veterinary Services.
