Quick Check: Consult with your employer to see if they offer relocation assistance. If they do, make sure you understand your relocation package benefits and that you follow the necessary rules and guidelines to ensure you don't jeorpardize those benefits. They may require you to use a specific real estate brokerage or sales agent. If not, I'd be more than glad to help out with the sale of your home here as well as helping you find a home in your new hometown.
