Corporate Relocation Reviews: I've had the most amazing experience renting this unit. I'm a traveling executive who has to stay in hotels most of the time and getting the opportunity to rent this 1 bedroom studio at the heart of Sugar Land has been so refreshing. The location is great and the pictures really capture the living environment. Fantastic renting experience! Johnny W.

Corporate Relocation Reviews: Pius is an awesome host. Though he wasn't present, he was always readily available through email, and responded promptly. His key handoff system is reliable, efficient, and convenient. The photos and description of his place do not do it justice. It is so spacious, clean, an comfortable. The gym and pool are steps away, and you get two free parking spaces. The building is very secure, and requires passwords and fobs for entry. It is also in an ideal location-- mere miles from Midtown, Montrose and the museum district, and Rice University. We had an excellent stay and would return. Sophia P.

Corporate Relocation Reviews: Wonderful experience! Mr Pius was precise at directions and information, he was available 24 hrs and with prompt response. The condominium was immaculate, quiet, nice and very comfortable. Family and pet friendly. Very well located and great alternates to move easily around the city. More than what I was expecting, I could easily stay there forever Cristy C.

Corporate Relocation Reviews: This had to be the easiest most organized air bnb i have ever stayed at. Pius gave complete and full instructions on how to go about checking in and out and everything inside the unit was rather perfect and as described. This place literally couldnt be any closer to the metro rail and the NRG stadium. I would love to stay here again. M. Ortiz

Corporate Relocation Reviews: This is the third or fourth time that I have stayed in this building (different units) with Pius as host. Very nice unit. Great building and location. Check in and out is super easy. No problems. Will stay here in the future. Ronda D.

Corporate Relocation Reviews: The apartment was exactly as described. We were in Houston for business and the location was perfect. One half block from the Metro Train meant we did not have to hassle with traffic, even though we had a car. The apartment was clean, equipped appropriately with all amenities. The pool and work out facilities were very nice and kept up. It was easy to deal with Pius and he accommodated my request twice for extended stay. A few mouse clicks is all it took. Thank you! M. Weston

Corporate Relocation Reviews: The location is absolutely perfect, close the the light rail, medical center and museum districts. If you have an event at NRG, you can walk and skip traffic and parking. His place is clean and cozy, quite comfortable. Huge tv, WiFi, cable, and a blue ray too. The pool is a nice bonus. Went home with clean clothes too with in unit washer and dryer. A. Ziegwied

Corporate Relocation Reviews: The apartment was nothing less than perfect for what I required! Modern amenities throughout, really comfy bed and lovely natural light through the daytime. The apartment Pius picked for me was located on the 4th floor with the loveliest view on to the pool area. "The Valencia" is situated in easy walking distance to the street train with great access to either the NRG Center in one or to Midtown/ Downtown with shops, restaurants and convenience stores in the other direction. Pius and his colleagues are great and well organized - I'm looking forward staying there again in 2017 ;). Corinna B.

How do you work with international buyers?

As mentioned previously the documents are the same. Title will require funds to be in a US bank account min 14 days prior to closing. If financing is needed, the UN Federal Credit Union in New Jersey finances foreign nationals as long as they are buying in the US. They perform credit and background checks in the country of origin. If the foreign national is working in the US in the medical field, (example) depending on employment and assets, they may get financing from a local bank or even a line of credit for the purchase of a home.\nJust my experience with Foreign buyers.

Airbnb/STR lease documents?

I use a 3 page lease agreement for my portfolio of short term rentals. Due to the clientele of International (who do not have SSN or credit built in the US) patients, potential investors or corporate clients relocating, I accommodate them through detailed background checks both here in the US and abroad along with deposits to secure the owners interests. Corporate relocating is a whole different business and you should be cautious to who you are renting too. Leases under 1 month are subject to hotel taxes which you or the landlord have to collect depending who is managing the tenant. Platforms like Airbnb and VRBO are in some cases are not allowed by some HOA/POA\'s, you will need to check to avoid violation fees. Some cities in TX require the owner pay a leasing fee. Houston is not yet there but I do know Sugarland requires this. If you have questions please feel free to reach out to me. I head up a large portfolio of fully furnished corporate apartments in Houston and surrounding areas.

Listings outside of the country

Yes, you can. You must have the HAR Form 301 (International Listing Agreement) signed by the owner of the property in the country. To get paid you can use the International Realtor Member Referral Contract Form.This form is between your brokerage and the brokerage in the country you will be listing the home. If there is not another broker involved then you have to ask yourself who is going to do all the staging, showings, legal paperwork with the buyer and closing? Team up with someone in that country to handle this for you. NAR & TR\'s frown on US agents placing their signs in countries where they are not licenced to do business. Even if there are no Real Estate licencing laws, there are business, tax & Immigration laws which could be violated if you do business and receive money in a foreign country. Safest bet is to have someone do it for you down there and you earn the referral. \n\nFeel free to reach out to me if you have any other questions.
