It is with immense pride, joy and gratitude that we celebrate Expat Relocation & Immigration Services’ fourth birthday.
What started as a casual conversation over coffee has grown into a successful business that has helped more than 500 clients navigate the complex journey of immigration. Over the past four years, we have built our reputation as a trusted, reliable, and experienced consultancy, focusing on delivering the best immigration support possible to each client.
In 2019, our founder, Elizette became aware of the need for expert advice and professional guidance for individuals and families moving to the Netherlands. As an expat herself, she knew just how difficult it was to move to and settle in a new country and as a psychologist, she also understood the emotional toll of such a venture. She knew that she could help by simplifying the administrative processes so that her clients could focus on the array of other challenges that come with immigration. So she established the company and since then it just went from strength to strength.
Our 79 five-star reviews on Trustpilot serve as a testament to our values. Our commitment to efficiency, knowledgeability, helpfulness and friendliness, and our wealth of expertise is reflected in the glowing feedback we've received from our clients. One review even boldly declares, "you cannot move to the Netherlands without them". These positive client experiences keep us motivated and guide us when making decisions about the future of our company.
At Expat Relocation & Immigration Services our clients are more than just numbers. We strive to build long-term relationships with them, based on trust, respect, and mutual understanding. We understand that each client has unique needs, goals and aspirations, and we believe that our services should reflect that. Our team takes the time to understand each client's situation and provides tailored solutions to help them achieve their immigration goals. We believe that this approach has been one of the key factors in our success and growth over the past four years and we are unwaveringly dedicated to offering a personalised service. We even once spent days trying to locate one of our clients’ missing mail!
Whether it's locating a missing piece of mail, buying groceries or entertaining a client’s children when he attends his town hall registration appointment, we are dedicated to providing the highest level of service to our clients.
Elizette is the founder of Expat Relocation & Immigration Services. Originally from Cape Town, she relocated to the Netherlands with her husband and two children five years ago. Elizette's devotion to her work is undoubtedly a driving force behind the success of Expat Relocation & Immigration Services. She even phoned Janine from the top of the Eiffel Tower about a client once! Apart from her passion for her job, Elizette also enjoys long walks with her friends, reading and exploring Europe with her family.
Janine hails from the picturesque jacaranda city of Pretoria, South Africa, but now calls a small village in the Netherlands “home”. Janine immigrated to the Netherlands 7 years ago with her husband and two children. She loves to take long walks and is an avid reader and enthusiastic member of her book club. One of her biggest passions lies in her career as an immigration consultant.
Adele is also an ex-Capetonian and embarked on a new adventure to the Netherlands in 2021 with her husband and two teenage sons – right in the middle of the Covid pandemic. She is a qualified chartered accountant and has a rich background in the corporate setting. Adele enjoys travelling and is currently enjoying the endless cultural experiences that Europe has to offer. In her free time, she enjoys reading, baking and finding ways to explore her creative side. Adele is following her passion by combining her love for helping people and her financial acumen.
Melani, another Capetonian, is a true expat who has lived in Germany, Switzerland, England, the United States and the Netherlands. This provided her with the opportunity to interact with a diverse spectrum of people and understand their unique challenges, worries, fears, and hopes. With a deep sense of people's needs and wants, she is passionate about helping and supporting others seamlessly integrate into their new community.
We are extremely optimistic about all of our future endeavours and initiatives. We recently refreshed our website and are excited to become more active on social media to share news, valuable information and a few tidbits about our company and team. We also expanded our list of services and are now offering assistance to international students and corporations wanting to facilitate the immigration journey for their employees.
As we celebrate our fourth anniversary, we want to express our gratitude to our clients, business partners and loved ones who have been with us on this journey. Your trust, support, and feedback have been invaluable in helping us grow and improve our services. We are excited about the future and are committed to continuing to provide exceptional personalised services to our clients.
Thank you once again for your support, and we look forward to serving you in the years to come.
