Downsizing / Senior Moves

“Happiness is not found in the things you possess,
but in what you have the courage to release.”

If you’re fortunate enough to live a long life, you know that life is all about change. Whether you resist it or embrace it is completely up to you. But embracing change, when it involves sorting through all of your possessions, deciding what to keep and what to let go of can be overwhelming. I’m here to make that process feel, not just manageable, but as a step in the right direction. I will help you with every aspect of this transition, from start to finish. If you need to sell some of your items when we’re finished sorting, I’ll help you do that; or send some special items to family or friends, we can do that, too. If you’ve decided moving to a smaller home, maybe closer to family, makes sense for you, I’ll help you find a realtor, a moving company, create a floor-plan for the new place, and get you all moved in and set up in your new home. It’s a lot to coordinate, but that’s what I’m here for. So, call me and let’s get started.

Our goal is to manage the whole process, from start to finish:

  • Free consultation in your home to determine scope of downsizing process
  • Provide referrals for movers, estate sellers, real estate agents, and aging care management services
  • Develop timetable for move and all related activities
  • Communicate schedule and all activities with your adult children, if that is your desire
  • Assist with sorting belongings and determining what to keep, give, sell or dispose of
  • Create floor plan for new residence to make sure everything you want to take with you will fit and feel like home
  • Coordinate all aspects of the move, from supervising packing to managing all activities on move day
  • Unpack and set up your new residence, including making beds, setting up computers and electronics, hanging pictures; whatever you need to feel settled in
  • Disbursement of remaining household items to family members (packing and shipping for out-of-town family), preferred charities, and/or coordination with estate sellers
  • Arrange for and coordinate repairs on previous residence to prepare it for sale
