Who we've worked with

What the expats say...

Victoria was incredibly supportive in our process of moving to Berlin. She answered questions quickly and thoroughly and made me comfortable that I knew what I needed to have and what I needed to do. She organized us getting our Anmeldung on exactly the day we needed and walked me through the process of registering my son in school, as well as completing the paperwork for the infamous Hort Gutschein. Victoria is both professional and easygoing as well as fun to be around and we look forward to having her at our housewarming party if we ever find a flat - which I'm sure she could help us with as well!

After looking for a while for a good partner to help me with getting my permanent visa in order and getting disappointed by other services in Berlin, I’ve discovered ExpatMgmt to answer for my needs without me losing precious time and losing working hours. Victoria is highly recommended, she will get you exactly what you need, she is well familiar with the foreigner's office and is very professional. She always answers with a smile and willingness to help.

I used Expat Mgmt for the relocation of my family from the US to Berlin during the summer of 2018. Victoria was a lifesaver. She knew exactly what filings had to be done, where to submit them and when they needed to be done. She speaks fluent German so we could rely on her to complete forms for us and to discuss the particulars of our situation with the government employees. In addition to being knowledgeable about what had to be done, she was efficient and responsive. I highly recommend Expat Mgmt for your relocation needs.
