I just learned a very important lesson about the Immigrant Population of Nurses we are addressing. Apparently, the Filipino population in particular, is afraid to reach out to us, me/ReMax as they believe there is an underlying charge for our services of providing housing assistance.
I had a breakfast meeting this morning with a family who’s just arrived in Colorado Springs and their assigned Realtor Myoung Reed of Re/Max CO Springs.
This was my first opportunity to meet one of my Nurses in person. Rodolfo informs me that his Filipino Nurse Colleagues back in the Philippines are under the impression that they’ll be obligated to pay a fee up front for the services we provide.
Re/Max Agent services are available at no charge for nurses relocating to Colorado or elsewhere in the United States.
We have been called to the unique challenge of helping WWHSS Nurses make a safe, successful move to the US and begin providing much needed medical services in our communities. Rodolfo, a recent immigrant to America, knows this better than anyone. A move like this requires a heroic, coordinated effort.
“Relocating can be scary especially for people who do not have any family and friends in the area. You don’t know what to expect, what to do and how to get settled in. This is why we contacted ReMax while we were still in the Philippines. They then connected me to one of their realtors, Myoung who was more than helpful in finding us an apartment in Colorado Springs. She toured us to potential apartments while still in the Philippines thru videocall and when we arrived in the United States she still showed us some apartments. She reviewed and explained the lease agreement of the apartment to ensure that everything was clear. She even went out of her way to take us to IKEA to aid us in buying furnitures for the apartment! She gave us tips to make living in the Springs comfortable. Moving to US became a breeze, thanks to Remax team! And all of this without us having to pay for anything to them.”
