"My family and I have been using Octopus Relocations services for our residence permits and other related issues for the past 5 years. During that time we have always found that they have been very prompt, courteous and professional in the way that they have helped us. We would highly recommend them to anyone moving to or living in Greece who may need assistance in this area."

"Marianne and Lena have been fantastic in helping me and my husband settle into Athens and continue to be a great help through various bureaucratic intrigues in Greece. I'm not sure what I'd have done without them! They are always super-efficient, prompt and quick to answer any queries and have always made sure all the applicable rules are followed with as little inconvenience possible for me - I would highly recommend them."

"I have been working in various countries and my easiest relocation was in Greece, together with Octopus, despite language and wording barriers. I was assisted directly with a very professional and dedicated person. Beyond their experience in administrative procedures, Octopus helped me decode Greek culture and assisted fully in my positive integration".

"Moving your family to a new country and culture can be very stressful and one of the elements that made our move to Greece so great, was the professionalism, approachability, speed and knowledge that we met from Octopus. Within a very limited timeframe they had everything planned for my family and I, so that we could get the most out of our pre-visit to Greece incl. house search, visit to football clubs, school etc. and the way they handled the energy levels and well-being of our entire family during this pre-visit and also after the move, was fantastic. They are simply amazing and I would recommend them at any time."

"When an employee decide to expatriate to a new country and pick up a new job assignment, the settling in to the new job becomes a little larger when it is connected to accommodating to a new environment. That pressure becomes larger when family members accompany the expatriate employee. Our experience with Octopus relocation, eased the anxiety to a smoother transient. All Octopus relocation employees are connected to the needs of the new assignee and his/her family members, assisting in all possible matters connected to their relocation. Our experience has been extremely positive."
"Your attention to details and timely follow-up made the job run smoothly. Thank you for being such a great partner."

"Octopus was truly a great partner for me and my family when settling in to Athens. Besides very professional relocation service we also felt that we got that extra support with everyday concerns that really made our life a little bit easier. Being a first time expat family with a small child and another one on the way, it felt very safe to always have someone there for us. I am really grateful for Octopus' contribution of making our stay in Greece an enjoyable experience."
"Marianne and her team at Octopus have been very helpful to my wife and I, before, during and after our move to Greece. They took the time to understand our housing needs but also to educate us on Greek culture and society. Our move to Greece would not have been as smooth without Marianne and her excellent Octopus team!"
