McAllen Real Estate Company Repatriation program prepares returning corporate personnel and their families to address the unexpected issues which surface when they return to their home country. It includes a coordinated sequence of assistance, beginning with needs assessment and a packet of relevant information to help them form realistic expectations prior to the return. Following the return, the family receives a consultation on their practical needs, with updated information on schools and assistance in locating housing, and a half-day seminar dealing with the many issues surrounding "reentry shock." The Repatriation seminar puts the reentry experience into perspective , and assists the returnees in developing strategies to reduce stress and plan for a positive transition period when moving to McAllen.
Our initial consultation determines the educational needs of each individual. We discuss all factors regarding education including an explanation of the American school system, the differences in private, public and religious schools, preschools and schools of higher education. We provide extensive information regarding registration and medical requirements, and necessary documentation for entrance into the school system.
We also offer assistance for special education needs, available openings at appropriate schools and schedule appointments for campus visits and registration.
Orientation and Search of Rental Apartments
Our orientations include prior assessment of the client's needs and research to locate appropriate apartments. We escort the client to available rentals according to a prepared personalized itinerary. Our relocation specialists offer an area orientation and explain specific issues such as utility setup. A second day provides an opportunity to view a wider selection of housing.
Orientation and Search for Rental Single-Family Homes, Condominiums, or Townhomes
We customize this complete relocation package to meet the family's needs. We give attention not only to housing, banking, social security and medical matters, but also to personal issues. We follow an office briefing of McAllen Area living with an escorted view of appropriate housing. Our personalized service allows us to work closely with all family members from initial contact to well after the family feels established. We save your company the expense of interim housing by coordinating the delivery of rental furniture, household goods and utilities setup.
Once on your staff, your employee can make his or her full contribution on the job only if the family is making a satisfactory adjustment to new surroundings. For many newcomers the changes are confusing and stressful. McAllen Real Estate Company offers the information, workshops and support network to assist your employee and family in making the transition a successful one.
Individual Family Consultations, Community Tours
Available during recruitment or following relocation, this individually tailored service helps the family search through the multitude of options in housing and education. This will ensure that a family is informed of community resources relating to its particular needs and interests. Guided tours will familiarize clients and their families with relevant community resources and local points of interest. Knowing more about housing quality and prices and about options in schooling and shopping establishes the family's points of reference concerning the growing metropolis in which they are going to live.
Living and Working in the U.S.
This one to two-day program prepares international transfers and their spouses to function effectively in the American workplace and community.

Each training is tailored to the needs of the individual and the corporation as determined in a prior needs assessment.
