We recently had a VIP who asked us for an orientation so his wife would feel comfortable making the relocation with him. (He had already visited San Francisco for his job interviews.)
When we receive a relocation request for a VIP – someone who has a very high-ranking position within their company, we suggest that they make a preview trip. This helps their spouse be enthusiastic about the potential move. We drive them around the city, pointing out different neighborhoods, convenient transportation options, fun activities to do, and shopping areas.
When the couple then returns to the city, they are more familiar with where they want to live when they relocate permanently.
