I spent 30 years as a butler moving a family across the world at a moment’s notice finding their accommodation, transportation and professional services while also handling everything from security to shopping. When it was my turn to move countries however, I spent an expensive, frustrating year on my own trying to retire and create a life for myself in Chiang Mai. It was a new culture with different attitudes, expectations, customs and laws I didn’t understand. I wasted a small retirement fortune on bad leases, bad advice and unnecessary expenses. Then I met Khun Aom. Born and raised in Chiang Mai, she helped fill in the gaps about my new home while explaining the intricacies and delights of Thai culture.
She changed my life here in Thailand and now we want to do the same for you. We’ve teamed up to make your move to Chiang Mai fun, interesting and economical instead of tedious, stressful and expensive. Together we handle all the hassles for you – everything from retirement visas and health care, to buying a car and condo – in hours instead of months. We even have a free 24-hour service that straightens out any cultural, legal and medical emergencies for you while you’re on the phone. Our clients rave about their experience with us as their trusted guide and so will you.
While my Thai name is Aom, my Western friends call me Aimie. Most people who visit Thailand, even folks living here, have never really known a Thai person which makes it hard to understand our culture - but you’ll get to know me starting your first day! I’m from Chiang Mai and wear many different hats as a mother of two, accountant, tour guide and lover of Thai culture. With my understanding of Chiang Mai and my years of experience guiding visitors, I’ll show you all there is to know about retirement living in Chiang Mai, including introducing you to important contacts and local resources, in a way that’s helpful, easy to understand and fun to get around, explain our exotic buildings and customs and get you plugged into all the local resources and people you’ll need for your new life. Plus, you’ll always be able to call me if you have questions about your new hometown, or simply need need a friend, from day one.
