We were fortunate enough to work with Sonia Cheng-Cook and Executive Homes in our search for our apartment. Sonia is extremely efficient, supportive and knowledgeable about the market. Within a very short period, she had the contracts prepared and we were moving in. We are grateful as she reviewed the contracts and made recommendations with of our best interests at heart and she even assisted in hooking up all the utilities. The entire process was stress free. We would confidently recommend Sonia and Executives Homes to our family, friends and colleagues for their relocation needs in Hong Kong. Many thanks Sonia!

This is the second time Sonia and Executive Homes HK have found my ideal flat, seemingly conjuring up options that other companies failed to either know about or have access to. On top of this Sonia has been extremely efficient with the all details, negotiations and eventual handover making the whole process much smoother. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for a fresh, efficient and professional relocation expert.

It is rare to find such talent in the Real estate agency market in Hong Kong such as Sonia.

I have known her for 5 years, having engaged her services in both the purchase and letting process, as a resident and non-resident of Hong Kong. She has vast experience in the corporate market, with quality niche clientele, an exceptional work ethic and is rigorously efficient and diligent in her approach to transacting. Her knowledge of the central market is unparalleled, coupled with a keen sense of value and strong negotiation skills, making the process seamless and achieving the optimal results for both parties. She always communicates in a clear, concise and unbiased manner and is, above all, charming to deal with. She is of the highest integrity and cannot recommend her highly enough.

"Annemay, Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all of your help and support in getting me sorted and living in HK. I'm hugely impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of your service - made it all very easy and straightforward. Many thanks!"

Steve Horton, Chief Transformation Officer Bupa - International Development Markets

We had a terrific experience with Executive Homes -- after dealing with two other agents, after being totally exasperated and at our wits end -- we were referred to Sonia Cheng-Cook by a friend -- and wow, what a difference! Sonia is a consummate poised and capable professional who showed us exactly the type of properties we were searching for -- and we found our dream flat....all seamless, transparent and caring! Well done and much appreciated.

CEO, Zurich Insurance Company Ltd.

Maureen, thank you for your excellent help in both my relocation to Hong Kong and my subsequent move to a new property in Mid Levels. You delivered a very tailored service to us but what really distinguished you was your added value insight into life in Hong Kong and tips on how to get settled in a new environment. Thank you!

Stephen, Managing Partner - Asia Eversheds LLP

I was introduced to Executive Homes by a friend; their thorough searches where nothing seemed too much trouble, their efficient use of time and friendly and practical advice combined to find the perfect flat to rent. Thereafter their attention to detail, their knowledge of current market practice and their common sense in negotiation made the formalities painless. I would recommend Maureen Mills and her team to anyone thinking of relocating to Hong Kong.

Sandy Dudgeon - Cazenove Capital Management

Many thanks to Executive Homes for doing such a wonderful job in finding our new Hong Kong home. We were extremely impressed by the level of professionalism shown by the team and also their commitment in ensuring we found a home ideally suited to the needs of an expatriate family with young children. They were patient and supportive throughout the process and we could not recommend their services highly enough.

Jonathan & Maeve Wallace

We moved from London with a work transfer in May 2014 following an initial scouting trip in January. Annemay from Executive Homes took the time to listen to what we wanted, and presented over 25 well researched  properties meeting our specific requirements. Not only was her service professional, but her local insight was delivered personably and her time given to us generously. We were shown different areas of Hong Kong, and armed with the relevant information, we made a choice perfect for our needs. Annemay's proactive approach made our transition to Hong Kong a pleasure and far and above exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend the team at Executive Homes.

Laurie Yu

Sonia is a consummate professional who is a pleasure to deal with and who I don't hesitate to recommend. Sonia was outstanding at listening to my requirements, matching them to properties, showing quite a few to help narrow down the important criteria and not giving up when we had a difficult time with a particular landlord. She intrinsically knew what I was after and was also good at saying what wasn't available as well as what was.  I ended up taking a property whilst overseas, Sonia sorted everything for me so when I landed I hit the ground running.  I'm now very happy in my new home - thank you!

Programme Director, Prudential Asia Corporation

We have been introduced to Sonia and Executive Homes at a moment where all other searches have been unsuccessful. Sonia's focus and dedication to our brief has been professional, reactive and efficient. We have been able to find what we wanted in a very short notice and thanks to her tight follow up we have been able to move in very quickly. Thanks again and we would highly recommend Sonia for any search.

Travel Retail Director Asia Pacific, Perfume and cosmetics

It’s such a joy to be served by people who are prompt, efficient and understanding. Maureen showed me a selection of five HK flats on my first day in HK and helped me judge the options. I moved in just three days later. The process couldn’t have been more seamless! Thank you.

Ms Chenting Zou, Bupa Asia Ltd

I can't speak highly enough of the service we received from Executive Homes & in particular Annemay.

We came across the company whilst searching for properties via the internet prior to our move a year ago.

Initially I emailed them regarding a specific apartment, but soon realized they offer much more than standard "real estate services". The whole relocation support was fantastic; researching sports clubs for our active family, finding the right balance of sports facilities, apartment size & price. 

It wasn't an easy task- we looked at so many places, as I was very indecisive!  Annemay took this all in her stride & kept us on the right path to finding the perfect solution for our family's needs. We had plenty of extra support on schooling choices, the legal requirements of our lease, sorting out utilities, internet & general advice about life in Hong Kong, where to shop & how to keep two young children entertained. This was all done with a highly professional and caring manner; really making us feel valued. We love where we live & we love being in Hong Kong & a big part of that is thanks to Annemay & Executive Homes.

Sonia was great at finding my new apartment in a flash, understood what I was looking, great follow-up and very helpful on the admin side and tying up loose ends. Recommended her to a good friend with same results."

General Manager, Five Star Hotel on HK Island

Maureen, thank you so much for everything you did to secure us a wonderful apartment. You made the whole experience very easy (even viewing 20 apartments in a day with a 2 year old and 4 month old). Your experience and judgement helped us secure what we wanted at a good price with all necessary changes undertaken by the landlord before we moved in. You imparted a wealth of information  - not just about renting a property  - but about living in HK generally, for which we were very grateful. Your attention to detail and hospitality made all the difference. It was a pleasure to deal with you. Thank you again.

 

Anita Phillips

Sonia was extremely professional and personable in all our dealings. She went out of her way to make it a good experience for our family and we really appreciated the additional effort she put in, to make the process as easy as possible for us. Her knowledge of the areas and properties ensured that we could always focus our efforts where needed and not waste time. And she made sure that we were never rushed in our viewings, but allowed us the time to check and ask questions wherever we felt necessary.

Sonia was recommended to me and I would and already have recommended her to other families looking for a hassle free, pleasant house hunting experience.

Marketing Solutions Manager, Brand Consultancy Company

From the moment we met Sonia, she was friendly and professional. She quickly understood our requirements and made sure all the apartments we viewed were not a waste of our time. Once we made our decision, she went above and beyond to ensure the experience was as painless as possible. And all with efficiency and good humour. I have no doubts in recommending Sonia and the services provided by Executive Homes. Hands down, the best experience I have had dealing with a property agent in Hong Kong!

Senior Traffic Manager, Adstream Hong Kong Ltd.

Executive Homes were instrumental in helping us find a new home here in Hong Kong. Helena and the team were quick to understand our needs and showed us a range of apartments that meant we were really spoilt for choice. In the end they secured a lease on a fabulous place that was originally well over our budget!

Helena has also been a huge help in our transition from London – assisting in finding schools, acquiring visas and with many of the other aspects of moving a family half way across the world.

Pippa & Rob Farrall

"Sonia was fantastic in matching our requirements, budget and location demands with some great properties. On our first day of viewings she lined up a number or properties that all met our criteria and as a result we found somewhere that very day.

Satnam MacLean, Actuary

It was a pleasure working with Jane, who assisted not only with the apartment rental but also in explaining how the market works in Hong Kong.

Rachel Goldner

I recently moved to Hong Kong and was not looking forward to sourcing my accommodation. Executive Homes delivered a very professional service and helped me at every step. They took all the hassle out of this at a very busy time for myself, in a foreign Country.

Martyn Ludlow, Consultant, Forth Capital (HK) Ltd

Executive homes, and Sonia specifically was recommended to me by a close friend after I accepted a position to work full time in HK. After 5 minutes of working with Sonia, I know I made the right choice. Although I am a frequent traveler to HK, I did not understand the nuances involved in real estate transactions nor the subtle differences between neighborhoods. Sonia helped me determine my needs and with the laser focus, set up a series of appointments to look at apartments that would meet my requirements.

After a day of viewings, Sonia helped me reach a decision after reviewing the pros and cons of each apartment. After the decision was made, Sonia worked with my company's HR department to ensure docs and payment were taken care of.

I owe Sonia a big "Thank You" for making the experience simple and painless!

Mr Dana Guidice, V F Asia Ltd.

It is not easy to find the right apartment in Hong Kong, but Sonia and Melanie from Executive Homes seem to know about residential properties that are not only on the market, but are about to come on the market allowing them to show a wider selection than the average agency.

We had been looking for 3 months with no success with another residential agency. I had almost giving up and was coming to the conclusion that I would just stay in a serviced apartment when I was then recommended to contact to Sonia and Melanie. During our very first tour I was shown a number of suitable places in the right location at the right size and we received. During our second tour of the short listed apartments a few days later we made our decision.

Throughout the entire process we received useful advice and assistance with the leasing marketing in Hong Kong. I also found both of them to be friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I would have no hesitation to recommend Sonia or Melanie to anyone arriving or relocating in Hong Kong.

Stephen Chatham, Executive Centre

My son had to lease out his flat when he relocated to the USA. Executive Homes was recommended to him by one of his colleagues. Nevertheless, the flat was put on multiple leasing. Amongst the property agents we came in contact with, we found Executive Homes was by far the most active & effective in bringing in positive tenants to view the flat.

The Executive Homes negotiators have in-depth knowledge & experience in the letting market. They work with well-known relocation agents & have good relationships & contacts with large blue chip companies with mature & reliable personnel - that was the type of tenant we were looking for. We were highly impressed with their proficiency & the speed in which they were able to find us an appropriate tenant. The result speaks for itself.

Mrs. Shirley Poulsen & Mr. Allan Poulsen

Maureen Mills has helped us now with two moves in Hong Kong. On both occasions, she provided a hassle free and highly professional service that supported a very smooth accommodation transition for my family. I would highly recommend Maureen to anyone relocating to Hong Kong. Her knowledge of the market is excellent and her support is highly personalized.

Global Business Consulting Firm

Very satisfied with the level of service provided. We found our consultant knowledgeable, personable and patient. We have also been impressed with the level of ‘after sales’ support and advice we have received.

International Banker, Hong Kong

Thank you for the excellent service, care, and attention you and your colleagues have given to my family and I during a challenging transition from the USA to Hong Kong. You and your team impressed us with your knowledge of Hong Kong and all aspects of the local market. Such local knowledge and expertise definitely helped us make some important decisions regarding, where to live, where to send our children to school, transportation options, shopping, medical care, and life's everyday needs.

Our many needs and concerns were looked after and promptly responded to accordingly at each important step of the way. From the time we left the USA until we settled into our wonderful flat in the city, the genuine concern and support given to us has been truly impressive. We could not have done this without you and we're grateful for your help.

Head of After Sales Service (Asia Pacific), Robert Bosch Co. Ltd. (Hong Kong)

We first enjoyed Maureen’s services in 2002 and have used her several times since then. She listens carefully to our requirements and always presents apartment options that are a good fit both financially and in terms of layout. Whenever asked by friends for recommendations, we introduce them to Maureen.

Peter Heavyside, Hong Kong

We were very pleased and pleasantly surprised throughout our rental process with Maureen Mills and her colleagues at Executive Homes. We had been living in Hong Kong for some years so this was not our first experience with the Hong Kong real estate scene. Yet the helpfulness and professionalism easily exceeded our expectations. From search to moving in and ironing out the kinks of the new place, the process was smooth and responsive. We would undoubtedly use Executive Homes again if the need arises.

William L Meaney, Chief Executive Officer, The Zuellig Group

I have known Maureen since my wife and I arrived in Hong Kong almost seven years ago - in fact she found our flat. Since that time I have referred a number of 'new arrivals', including colleagues and friends who have transferred to Hong Kong from London, the US and across Asia. Their response has been one of unanimous praise. This includes for her service focus - always placing her client's interest first. For reliability and personal integrity. For market knowledge that reflects her experience of a market that can be daunting - especially for newcomers to Hong Kong.

I have no hesitation in recommending Maureen and wish her all the very best in her new business.

Tim Wright, Hong Kong

Sonia Cheng of Executive Homes assisted my family and I with our relocation from Europe, as well as many of my staff with both their long and short term accommodations. We have received useful advice and assistance with all aspects of relocation and leasing in Hong Kong and we have found Sonia to be extremely professional and knowledgeable, as well as friendly and sensitive of our company's needs. We continue to use Executive Homes with our incoming employees and I would highly recommend them to any individual or company who are seeking a residential agent in Hong Kong.

Ralph P.J. van Put, Chief Executive Officer, Greater China Capital Investment Corporation

For over 30 years we have asked Jenni Tinworth at Executive Homes to help us find quality tenants for our apartments available for rent. The service she offers is unparalleled and her attention to detail and speed of response to our queries means that Executive Homes is always our first choice for leasing our residential properties.
