WHAT CLIENTS SAY
Sonia Meier, Becomelocal, und ich arbeiten bereits seit über drei Jahren für unseren Kunden LGT Group Holding Ltd. zusammen. Sonia Meier ist sehr kundenorientiert, reaktionsschnell, würde nie zu viel verlangen und hat ein beträchtliches Wissen über die Einwanderung in die Schweiz. Sie und ihr Team haben eine sehr gute Beziehung zu den Zürcher Behörden aufgebaut, was oft der Schlüssel zu einer effektiven Abwicklung ist. Trotz schwieriger Situationen wurde die gesamte Arbeit stets mit Sorgfalt, Umsicht und Human Touch erledigt, die für unsere ausländische Bevölkerung und für mich so wichtig ist.
