English-speaking apartment rental agencies

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

Having just based ourselves in Berlin, I and my gf are now looking to rent a 2-3 bedroom flat here but rental estate agents with speaking staff seem not too many. We rent a place in Charlottenburg but need to move in mid-Dec and want to find something longterm in Prenzlauer Berg. I have seen the likes of Crocodilian but that to me is pure theft and nothing more! I have also been looking at Immobilien 24 website and that's all good but again, there is a bit of language barrier here... So, does anybody know any good (and real life) agency that has English-speaking staff?

 

Thanks,

Peter

http://www.fineandmine.de/ These guys are brilliant, have dealt with them before when I came to Berlin and they are loverly, really friendly and helpful. They speak perfect English. They used to be in Mitte, around Hackescher but i think they may be in Prenzlauer Berg too. Best of luck.

After many disappointing experiences (filling up forms in German, handing over private statements of all sorts, requesting pricey references and documents), we found a decent agent who was intelligent enough to understand that - having moved since 3 weeks only and speaking no German - we couldn't possibly make it through the bureaucracy and so he skipped some steps and were content to JUST have our work contract and the city hall registration. The agency is www.hsi-vermietung.de - they speak english, but do not have a wide selection of apartments. we found ours on immobilien 24 and were lucky it was handled by them. Good luck! and if you need help, just ask!

I can whole hearted recommend relocation and apartment rental agency Expats In Wonderland.  They specialise in apartment rental in Berlin as well as helping those from outside of the EU secure working visas as either employees, artists, or freelancers.  Big difference is they are exceptionally well connected with lots of housing associations and can secure a flat at a competitive market rate in a matter of a couple of weeks, sometimes even days.  Check out their reviews online.
