All the right moves

Retired military couple makes the move to Oak Crest

'Although we had moved a lot during our careers, this time we didn't want to do all the work ourselves,' says Scott Phillips, a retired U.S. Army officer. 'So we took advantage of the Erickson Realty and Moving Services program that Oak Crest offers.'

Scott and his wife Charlene met with Oak Crest Personal Moving Consultant, Ashley Ruth. She helped to design a personalized plan just for the Phillips. 'Ashley was a big help,' says Charlene, 'She came to our house and measured the furniture to determine what would fit best and where it would go in the apartment. She also provided us with a list of real-estate agents and movers that Oak Crest works with.'

With Ashley's help, the Phillips sold their Bel Air home in just 45 days.

Moving from their house into their new apartment home was easy too. By 5:30 p.m. on the day of their move, Scott and Charlene were relaxing inside their new home. 'Everything in the apartment was put away, the trash and the boxes were cleaned up, and [the movers] even made the beds and put out fresh towels,' says Scott. 'At the end of the day, we were exhausted, but I don't know why because we hadn't lifted a finger.'
