WE TAKE YOU ALONG, STEP BY STEP

YOUR GUIDE TO GERMANY

ABOUT US

Wilde Relocation relies on a team of highly professional, creative, hard-working employees and contractors. We are all at least bilingual; many of us speak several languages fluently. We know our cities very well and are deeply committed to performing as ambassadors for them.

Relocation Consultant is not a profession you can study at the university. The overall variety of tasks the job requires is reflected in the variety of professional backgrounds of our staff: we are translators, social workers, cultural administrators, secretaries, and more. Above all, every member of our team is well experienced in her/his specialty: administration, home search, server management, marketing, and other fields.

When you rely on us, we take you along, step by step, to make your relocation a pleasant and smooth experience. It is our goal to make you feel welcome in your new home from the very first contact.

OUR NEWS

New Address

On 8 June 2020 we moved to a more comfortable and spacious office location in Berlin Mitte. For seven years now we have been located in Berlin Wedding for you. Due to our constant growth, our current premises could not keep up with our current pace in the end. In order to be prepared for the future and to enable further continuous growth, we therefore looked for new premises last year and found them in a very central location in Berlin Mitte.

From now on you can find us at the following address:

WILDE Relocation

There is no change for you in the other contact possibilities; by telephone or by e-mail.
We are looking forward to working with you from our new premises and would be pleased to welcome you there personally.

Update Home Search Services

Due to ongoing restrictions because of Corona outbreak, we would like to give you a short update on current home search services.

  • It is true that there are less offers on the market as many realtors are working less or do not work for the next few weeks. However, private offers and furnished apartments can still be rented.
  • Especially furnished apartment providers/landlords seem to be more open for negotiation.
  • Viewings are offered only for single persons (home search consultants do not accompany the clients for the protection of all participants, but are available over the phone/video call during the viewing)
  • Some providers started to check the documents for the applications upfront and provide virtual tours to select only prospective tenants with high chances to rent the apartment
  • Nowadays it seems even more important to have all relevant documents for the application for an apartment and often also the long-term residence permit is needed (visa might not be sufficient e.g. for private landlords)
  • Handover of apartments are provided with less persons as well (consultant supports the client over the phone/video call or the landlord´s representative completes the check in inspection upfront alone and the tenant + consultant enter the apartment afterwards to confirm the single points on the handover protocol

This situation may require more flexibility from the tenant´s side, but our home search consultants are always available for questions and continue to support them even if face to face meetings cannot always be offered.
We do discuss all this upfront with your employees in order to understand if it makes sense to start the home search in these challenging days or better extend the temporary home and postpone the home search.

Please Stay Safe & Healthy
Your Wilde Relocation Team

OUR EVENTS IN 2018

In May 2018: Graffiti workshop together with HR professionals on the subject “onboarding”

In January 2018: Cultural Sponsoring: Wilde Relocation supports the Berlin Premier of the film, "The Picture of the Day"

Wilde Relocation co-sponsored the Berlin Premier of the film “The Picture of the Day” at the Cinestar-Kino in der Kulturbrauerei, mid-January 2018. The director, Jo-Anne Velin, and some of the people who appear in the film, introduced the audience to the film and took questions later. The reception afterward, open to the whole audience, included many Wilde Relocation employees and business partners.

“Forget what you think a documentary film should be,” suggested the director Jo-Anne Velin, before the screening began in the full cinema. “Just forget everything that you might have heard about Troeglitz and the people living there – just don’t think,” was the Canadian director’s invitation, in a typical mix of German and English. Troeglitz is the small community in Saxony-Anhalt, south of Berlin three hours. It is part of the greater Elsteraue Municipality, and it’s across this region that the film was shot. In April 2015, one image went around the world and put Troeglitz on the map: the burnt out roof of a building intended to house asylum-seekers, in the year over a million refugees arrived in Germany.

During 90 minutes, many different long-term residents are seen and heard in “The Picture of the Day” – Jo-Anne Velin was able to give time and space to the many people who had been overwhelmed by the tremendous media presence in their village. The director spent 100 days spread out over 17 months in the region – a long time in which the residents cautiously accepted the film project and feel closer to us. In fine, sensitive, unjudgemental pictures, their way of life gradually unfolds – how people congregated in church to pray for peace; how the football team includes some of the refugees; or how a local couple who run their third-generation bakery speak out for “love, tolerance, and a peaceful way of life together.”

The people who live there are revealed in poetic, esthetic moments. These are people who stay invisible – often by choice – in the broader media picture of the region. But in particular, two young girls are unforgettable, 9 year-olds who plan their lives together as they play in a childhood heaven of muddy farmfields, a clean brook, or in the gymnastics club. Seemingly unaffected by the political tensions, they see their future based on their own deep friendship, and can’t imagine what it would be like to live without one another. Afterward, on-stage, the girls came across as fresh and open as they are on-screen.

“The Picture of the Day” challenges prejudice without whitewashing the issues that affect Germany now. Films like this are driven by the will to understand better, where people come from and how they live together. The region portrayed in “The Picture of the Day” has been shaped by over a hundred years of different waves of migration, a history that is easily overlooked by current headlines. Through associative images and sound, the film connects that history to the flight of people forced to seek a new home now.

Wilde Relocation is delighted with the turnout and the lively reception afterward, and wishes the film much success as it begins its cross-Germany tour.
