While any move is technically a “relocation,” Intracoastal’s Relocation Specialist Lisa Bisanar takes special care of those who are moving into the area from other, more distant, markets, or those who are moving away from the Cape Fear region and putting down roots elsewhere.
Together with the relocation team, Lisa manages a client list of some 500 people who are in various stages of relocating.
Job relocations, first time home buyers, vacation homes, retirees and families investing in real estate rather than student housing for UNCW-bound children comprise much of Lisa’s client list. But though there are trends, every client is different.
“Buyers coming to the area with children need help navigating our school districts, recreational opportunities and youth sports leagues,” Lisa explains, adding “Once we were moving a family here with an urgent health diagnosis requiring that we offer insights and recommendations for health care providers.”
Helping locals leave town is also a service of Intracoastal’s relocation team. That’s made easier with Intracoastal’s membership in Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a network that assures connections with top agents anywhere in the United States and abroad. “Our network serves to reassure clients that the service they receive from Intracoastal will be matched in a new and unknown market. It’s a tremendous advantage for the hand-holding that comes with any relocation transaction,” Lisa says. “We can offer an overview of the lifestyle and schools a family enjoys here to help our network agents in another city match our client’s day-to-day in a way that smooths their transition as much as possible.” For global sales, our team coordinates directly with our network of overseas affiliates, accommodating the time difference and currency exchange and anticipating any cultural hiccups.
Among Lisa’s favorite “re-lo” stories? “Years ago, we moved a family here from out west along with their two beloved donkeys, Thelma and Louise. Intracoastal found them a farm with pastures and a barn that happily welcomed them both!”
If you or someone you know is considering a move to or from our region, put them in touch with Lisa. Her insights, her team and Intracoastal’s network of affiliates around the globe will assure an easier transition, regardless of the distance.
