As such we have compiled the following list of reputable Shenzhen real estate agents to take the headache out of looking for an apartment in Shenzhen.
Huachang Real Estate
Ann represents Huachang Real Estate which is based in Shekou and covers the Nanshan district which includes Shekou. Ann has lived in Shekou for almost fifteen years and has been working in the real estate industry now for about five years. Ann’s customer base is a mix of foreign expats of various nationalities and Chinese who have returned to China after either living or studying abroad. During her time at Huachang Ann has matched hundreds of satisfied tenants with landlords and in order to further strengthen her reputation in the market she goes beyond that of what is normally required of her by assisting with ongoing communication with landlords, doing random translations or even going as far as assisting to buy a piece of furniture on Taobao for your apartment.

Cady represents Sweet Home which is based in Taoyuan and covers the Luohu, Futian, Nanshan & Bao An districts. Cady has been working in the real estate industry now for about seven years and her customer base is made up mainly of foreign expats, particularly those of foreign companies whose staff reside in Shenzhen. During her time at Sweet Home Cady has assisted over 700 satisfied people to find an apartment of their choice.
Also, Sweet Home doesn’t just find apartments for their customers, but they also manage their own properties and offer packaged services which include cleaning, utilities, internet and repair & maintenance etc. This elevates them above your normal agency and makes them more of a property management company. As such Sweet Home is able to offer a diverse range of services to their tenants such as, offering assistance to find a gym, ordering food & beverages, finding a driver or an interpreter, arranging an airport pick up or even offering advice on what tourist destinations are the best to visit.
Another thing that makes Sweet Home unique is that they also have short-term apartments available that can be rented on a monthly basis for those just staying temporarily in Shenzhen. In the past many of her friends were complaining that they could not find short term apartments without paying very high prices, so she made this resource available to better serve the demands of the market. If you are looking for a place to live for a few months, this is a great resource to have, as generally, most landlords will not sign a contract unless it is at least for a year.
