I recently accepted a job offer in Hong Kong that is located in Shatin, New Territories. I am visiting Hong Kong in a few weeks and will permanently be moving here in about 3 months. I was hoping to connect with any real estate agents who are English speaking and can help me look for apartments to rent? I sent a few emails to Squarefoot and Gohome.com to connect with agents, but have not heard back yet. If anyone has contact information on local agents that work with Expats, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
There are many websites and agents who can help you find an apartment, and it's always a good idea to start looking as soon as possible. Have a read of our page on renting property in Hong Kong for a start.
Hongkonghomes is a good site to see what's available and familiarise yourself with the different agencies. It's probably best to look for places that interest you and get in touch with an agent by enquiring through web portals like Savill's, Spacious or even Craig's List. Is there a specific area where you want to live in the New Territories besides Sha Tin?
