Are you facing the prospect of moving to a smaller home, condo or independent living facility? Moving is not easy, especially after years of accumulating furniture and “treasures”.
I understand how difficult this can be and the emotional stress involved. One of the challenges you will face is figuring out what to take with you to your new home. Here is how I can help you:
During our first meeting I will ask you to show me around your home. As we proceed I will photograph and measure your furniture and artwork and we will discuss what pieces are most important to you. It is always best to take the things you love most with you to your new home so you will feel comfortable in your new space.
We will then visit your new home to measure the rooms and I will prepare preliminary floor plans for you. Together we will come up with furniture arrangements for your new home.
The next step is for you consider the items that are not going with you and decide what will be given to family and friends, and what will be sold or donated to charity.
I can recommend people who can help you take care of these items.
Also someone who can come and pack the items you are taking with you.
All items to be moved will be tagged and color-coded to help the movers know where they will be placed in your new home. On move day I will be there to direct the movers and make sure everything goes smoothly. If you need to buy new furniture for your new home I can assist with that … as well as color suggestions and window treatment choices.
I engaged Kathy to help me stage my home in Norwalk, CT for sale, to help me downsize for a move to Stamford, and settle into my hew home.
I cannot say enough about her enthusiasm, intelligence, skill, talent, integrity and personality. She was a true partner throughout a difficult time. She helped me make my new home warm and beautiful. She was always on time, always delivered what she promised, and more. She researched, computerized, and never missed a detail. She was truly incredible throughout.
She had terrific knowledge and was thoroughly organized. She knew local providers to engage. She let me assert myself and each decision was made with both of us. She continued to help me for several months after the move, and no detail was too small. She understood "feng shui", balance, color, size and comfort.
She is "A+" in my book and I cannot recommend her enough.
