Sylvia Ehrlich, "The Intrepid New Yorker"

The Intrepid New Yorker (INY), a woman owned business, is a leading relocation consulting company serving the most demanding and complex of destinations — New York City and the tri-state area. Regarded by corporations and third-party relocation companies as the “special operations unit” for in-bound executives and their families, INY is entrusted with the most critical hires, global assignees and senior people. Powered by a proven strategic model, a skilled and dedicated director and a highly experienced field consulting team, INY succeeds time after time, not merely in finding homes, but actually recreating people’s lives, on time, on budget and without stress. Given New York’s uniquely high cost of living and extreme terrain — with hundreds of communities spread over a 75-mile radius of Manhattan — the “smooth moves” orchestrated by The Intrepid New Yorker are nothing short of miraculous.
