Members Words

Working with Jessica is really good and she is outstanding. I felt very well supported and she was really fast in all responses and feedbacks promptly when requested. My family needs were all fullfilled and I'm very satisfied with her services. Outstanding.


The destination services provider was very friendly and always willing  to help and take an additional step to make me feel at home and at ease


Thank you so much for a very productive week in Istanbul, you are really a professional, never loose the passion for what you do. Thank you very, very much.


Shirley is a joy to work with.   She has a great sense of humor and supported us by going above and beyond.  She was always available to help me in any way.  Her willingness to communicate gave me comfort that she was available night and day, weekends for my silly questions.  Her support in arranging TV, internet, phone and other services has been invaluable to me.  I now consider Shirley to be a friend!  Thanks so much for your awesome support, Shirley!!


Outstanding support and guidance during our pre-assignment trip. Organized, efficient, punctual and responsive. I particularly appreciated the speed of response to our requets to visit certain apartments and Yasemin’s advice regarding issues with some of the apartments we visited and terms to be offered/negotiated with the apartment owners.

I think Ozlem Hanim did a fantastic job with us. She is VERY fast in response and things really happen when she is involved. My family and I would certainly prefer to have YKC’s help whenever possible. 


Shirley has been incredibly helpful and insightful.


In general, services provided were very efficient and showed a lot of professionalism. We were very happy to have you show us around Istanbul and make us visit houses as well as schools. The Team understood very well what were our needs regarding our new life here and we really appreciated your company. I was also surprised to get replies to my e-mail always very quickly. I hope these remarks will help you build a stronger team.

Yours truly,

We wanted to thank you for supporting us during the settling-in and hand over process. We were worried about the last minute change at our arrival but you did an outstanding job.   From our hearts, we wanted to thank you for being so friendly and carefull with all of the details, making us  feel more comfortable in this transition. 


I would like to say ‘Teşekkür ederiz’ to YKC, and especially for you, of course, as you did a wonderful job during this time.  As I said, I would like to also give this feedback because your support were over my expectation. Too much attention, too much sensible and very very dedicated and committed. Keep the pace Jessica, you are on the correct way in your career.
