Feeling welcomed

Wednesday, 21 December 2011 11:41

Moving to Kenya has its share of challenges (even being a returning Kenyan!) when looking at locating a house, school for children and a car, among others. Normally new residents plan before hand depending on the nature of posting but acquiring some network or contacts to people for orientation purposes could come in handy.
We were looking to buy a car within a week’s time of arrival and happened to hear that Mr. Joep was the right person to contact. A week later we got a car to our liking and even managed to have most of the documentation done, including insurance. It was a relief to get the car so fast bearing in mind how long and cumbersome the procedure normally takes, not to mention a likely event of being conned.  Mr. Joep’s commitment is one of utter honesty and modesty, meeting him made our start much easier and we felt welcomed.
There are many agents and brokers out there that cannot be trusted which is why we decided to deal with Mr. Joep. The time he dedicates to his clients is well managed considering he’s also a father of three children.  He is very professional in his work, knowledgeable and at the same time has a pleasant personality.
At this juncture, we would like to thank Joep for helping us and we further wish him the best as he continues to make new residents feel at home. We can recommend using his car-broker and relocation services to the fullest to any newcomer.
