What customers say about us

Relocated from England to Dornbirn in Austria. Sonja was well prepared up front, great communication. Properties presented to me were as per my requests and ended up picking one the same day and completing the paperwork over a coffee. A great service and a lovely lady

Robert Jeeves

Extremelly helpfull and supportive. Made the housing search and integration experience an easy step for the family.

I moved from Turkey to Austria with the family. Shipman Relocation took care of all; from the little one’s school to housing, and answered our questions in any area of life; from driving lessons to second hand shops.. They are all well prepared and they take into account of your expectations, and very easy going that you feel comfortable as a foreigner together. Dear Sonja and Heike, many thanks for your warm welcome and professional help! In this new book of ours, ‘Austria’, you are in the preface!

Working with Schiffmann Relocation exceeded any of my expectation! I am Romanian and came in Austria knowing nothing about the culture and environment. I came from my country with bad thoughts about real estates agencies but Schiffmann Relocation employees answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. They know all real estates agent in the area and were able to give me the best possible choice, even better than I was imagining. Now I am living in a superb new apartment with garden and terrace with a below market price. I definitely recommend Sonja Schiffmann and her relocation company!

Not only did Sonja provide a very efficient service, she also did it with a smile and good humour which made the marathon day of visiting houses actually enjoyable ! Sonja helped our family of four find a lovely apartment near Lindau, in the middle of summer, which was quite a challenge. She also managed to get us two spots at a kindergarten in our town which was almost a miracle! I know she went to great lengths to achieve this. That’s on top of helping us with many other needs and providing handy information. We were delighted with the service through and through.

Sonja Schiffmann and the Team were instrumental in helping me finding the temporary and also long-term housing in a matter of few days! I feel truly blessed having her and her team’s support when it was needed most – the first arrival to a new country, language and local environment. A lot of information was provided by the team that was very useful in practical terms (location and opening hours of administrative institutions, where to find groceries, transportation, furniture, clothing, kindergartens, sports, leisure … the list is a long one!) All this they accomplished timely and with a lot of attention to detail. I can only highly recommend “Schiffmann Relocation” services, as without their support, getting accustomed to a new environment with only a limited language knowledge (in my case) would prove almost impossible.

Die Zusammenarbeit mit Frau Schiffmann war durchweg angenehm, gut organisiert und sehr erfolgreich. Sie hat unsere Wünsche sehr aufmerksam wahrgenommen und sich mit unseren besonderen Fragen und Problemen beschäftigt. Daher konnten wir nach nur kurzer Suche die für uns passende Wohnung mit ihr finden.

Sonja Schiffmann und das Team hat unsere Wohnungssuche ausgezeichnet organisiert – es war eine unglaublich grosse Erleichterung, da man aus einem anderen Land fast nichts in dem Gegend kennt und keine Chance hat, eine vernünftige Wohnung zu erwischen. Das Team war immer ansprechbar, hilfsbereit und hat uns sogar eine andere Familie vorgestellt, mit der wir mittlerweile sehr gut befreundet sind. Nur zu empfehlen!

Héjj Balázs


Außergewöhnlich kompitente Betreuung – von der Beratung und Vorbereitung in kulturellen und sprachlichen Fragen, über die Unterstützung bei der Beschaffung von Wohnraum, die Abwicklung von mit dem Umzug zusammenhängenden Formalitäten. Darüber hinaus ist Frau Sonja Schiffmann äußerst sympatische und herzlich…. 🙂 Einfach nur Empfehlenswert!!!

Alexandra Brinckmann


With Sonja has been so easy to move to Austria. She and her team has been available for helping me looking for flats, translating the main contracts I had to sign, gave me tips about the city and all of the tips necessary to know when you are new in a city, etc. Thanks for your help!
