About Euro Estate

Is Euro Estate a real estate agency?

We are consulting service to seek apartments efficiently, not a real estate agency. We provide owner's contact information of the apartment that matches your conditions. Execution of contracts and managing apartments etc. are not offered.

What made you start this service?

Many people start to find apartments before arrival, howevery due to limited information, it is not easy to find your place. Even after arrival, the apartment hunting turns out to be difficult than expected given the high competitive market, mismtach of rent duration and the language barrier. We believe finding aparments should be much more easier and joyful.

Euro Estate is here to eliminate the stress and find you a suitable apartment, so that you can start your new comfortable life in Europe.
