Relocating to an unfamiliar area can be unsettling, so it's a good idea to work with a relocation specialist who offers relocation services. Many real estate agencies have agents who specialize in providing relocation services, including finding temporary or permanent housing in your new community. To find a specialist in the area you are moving to, check with the local real estate agent you used to purchase your existing property. Your agent may refer you to an agency at the other end or may help co-coordinate your moving services. Another resource when relocating, assuming you are doing so for job-related reasons, is the hiring company's human resource department. If it is a large company, chances are the human resources staff has given many an employee referrals to local services.
