South Africa to Scotland

Relocation Agent

Recently I have gained an increasing number of South African clients eager to start a more peaceful and less stressful way of life.  Their common opinion was they now felt threatened on a daily basis in South Africa.  I contacted them all a few weeks after their move and was relieved they all  felt much less vulnerable in the UK.  So far I have assisted 3 families relocated to Edinburgh from South Africa.  Two opted for the hustle and bustle of the city centre but the younger of the 3 families decided on a family house in Balerno, with a large garden and close to the local school and shops.  I am glad to say they have settled into the Scottish way of living and are very happy with their decisions to relocate.
