POMPTON PLAINS, NJ Even though Joan Murray was moving just a hop, skip, and jump away from her house in Pompton Plains, N.J., to Cedar Crest, she faced the same dilemma of anyone who s moving: "what to do with all my stuff?" Once she sold her house, "That s where we come in," says Tom Refolo, a moving consultant for Senior Moves. The New Jersey moving company was recommended by Margaret Semezko of Erickson Realty & Moving Services, a complimentary service that provides anyone moving to an Erickson community, like Cedar Crest, help with selling and moving. When Murray s apartment home was ready for her, Semezko then suggested trusted real estate agents to help her sell her house and recommended Senior Moves to simplify the whole process. "Our biggest challenge with almost every move is to get our clients to downsize their kitchens. They really don t need those huge roasting pans any more," he says, referring to his clients new apartment homes at Cedar Crest, where they can dine in any of five on-site restaurants every day of the week. Murray confessed that it wasn t easy eliminating items that have accumulated over 40 years, but she says Senior Moves made a huge difference. "Tom and the gang really saved my family a lot of work," she says. Erickson Realty & Moving Services personal moving consultants provide trusted realty and moving resources, as well as expert advice and assistance with every aspect of a person s move.
