We Promote Agents. Worldwide is an ‘Uber-like’ experience for EXPATS when they relocate anywhere in the world. We are a global platform of all kinds of real estate professionals dedicated to delivering expats a stress-free moving experience.

The expat community is massive. Currently over 55 million people across the globe, it is set to grow to a community of over 87 million people by 2021, greater than the population of Germany.

The customer journey of an expat is different than a local who is relocating. Before the home finding process starts, an expat is seeking TRUST before travelling to a new destination and signing a lease for a house in a country where they have no knowledge of the rules and regulations, laws, neighborhoods, schools, language and culture. Our listed agents can make that difference. With HOUSING AGENT you can select your agent based on their location, expertise, skills, pricing and languages spoken. Candid customer reviews and the information our listed agents provide help the expat choose the best person that genuinely understands the stresses of moving. We want the expats journey of settling-in to a new country to be a stress-free experience.

We want to bring the human side of relocation and house hunting back into a market increasingly driven by digital platforms, AI, algorithms, and automation. We believe that the skills and knowledge that an experienced agent brings to their clients are attributes that cannot be replaced by a machine. Our mission is to bring forward our agent’s wealth of knowledge to satisfy the expats specific personal relocation requirements.

HOUSING AGENT is a robust, worldwide online platform showcasing select real estate professionals dedicated to serving the unique needs of the expat community. Our unmatched portfolio of HOUSING AGENT domain names and associated Twitter User Names are trademarked in over 100 countries. This helps to ensure consistency of brand and assurances of our commitment to providing you and the expat with unparalleled service.
We promote business profiles of qualified agents, their office and property listings, experience, skills, language(s) spoken, commission structure and fees as well as customer reviews.
