Coming from Dubai, we screening the market in Prague, looking for a house with specific requirements for our family. After screening the market we asked support to Karin, who attended us with a very high-standard. Was effective and took care of all the process. The interaction with her was easy, fast and effective. The owner of the house was making some renovations, and we needed to get everything ready by 3 weeks as we would arrive by that date. Karin took care of all these to ensure everything was perfectly prepared for our landing, as it was. Even the minimum details we were spoken about were perfectly in place... Definitely I recommend going through the research with her, as makes everything seem quite simple.
