FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK – July 22, 2008 – Relocation.com, the leading online consumer resource

to plan their moves. We will connect consumers with the professional movers and
the related services that will help make their move process easier and less stressful.”

We now can assist them with the important task of moving their household items to
their new home,” said Rick Sharga, vice president of marketing at RealtyTrac. “Buying
