Growth in business and relocations in the San Francisco Bay area has created a high demand, low availability market. Sky-rocketing sales prices and multiple offers may be shocking to transferees coming into this area, so SIRVA’s clients should be prepared to face c...

At this year’s Institute for Supply Management (ISM) conference held in Dallas, TX, it was not only the Lone Star state’s beautiful landscape that drew my attention (although I do admit it was a nice change compared to the long winter we had in Minnesota). ...

During the holidays, my sisters and I would do the same thing that my own children do today – count the presents under the Christmas tree (and of course make sure that the number of gifts is equal amongst the siblings!).

When reviewing the matter, it appears there are pros and cons to both sides. For example, do both models provide real estate resources? The simple answer is  “Yes.” But, the methodology to provide those resources is different. The relocation company-owned model generally utilizes its own real estate franchise to provide this resource, but for the unaffiliated network, a stringent sourcing process must exist to source the best rel...
