Chicago Relocation

“2010 was a year of change. 138 of your LinkedIn connections started something new.”

I received this interesting email from my friends at LinkedIn recently.  138 job changes.  WOW, that’s a lot.  It represents a good 25% of my LinkedIn sphere.  That means a couple of good things.  There ARE jobs out there.  It also means that talented people, who may have been out of a job for any number of reasons, have found a new corporate home. 

Did they also need to find a new “residential home?” 

Statistics show that many of them needed to.  Some received relocation benefits, some didn’t.  So I’d like to reach out to my LinkedIn friends and ask them – Of the 138 of you who found new jobs, did it require a move?  If so, how was the experience? HOW did you find your realtor?  I welcome both good and bad comments, Chicago related or not, “professionally managed” or otherwise.  I didn’t get a new job, but I moved back to the city (hurrah!!!).  I picked my agent (obviously I know many) because I felt she had the best grasp of my needs and a  track record for service – Thank you Anne Ewasko! For my household goods move I contracted RMR Move Services, who used Ace Worldwide to move me.  Again, based on personal experience and proven service track record.  The folks at Key Mortgage  walked me through a complicated mortgage situation and provided a great rate and indulged every phone call and question I threw at them.

So please leave a comment, we’d like to see how service levels are around the country!
