Angela Garofolo believes in the adage "time flies when you re having fun" especially when it refers to the hundreds of residents she has helped move to Seabrook over the past ten years.

It s Garofolo s job, at no extra cost to prospective residents, to visit them at their homes and assess their moving needs, create a customized plan, and coordinate and supervise any outside services before they move to Seabrook. It s all part of Erickson Realty & Moving Services, complimentary assistance in selling a home and moving, available to anyone moving to an Erickson community like Seabrook.

"We just want to make it easier from start to finish," Garofolo says. "From helping to sell their current residence to hanging window treatments in their new apartment home, we want to make sure every i is dotted and t is crossed from beginning to end."

Drawing upon her extensive sales and interior design background, Garofolo makes detailed suggestions to promote the profitable sale of the person s home.

As part of the Erickson Realty & Moving Services program, she arranges free market price analyses by qualified local experts and refers real estate agents who specialize in the seller s neighborhood. She often arranges home stagers, appraisers, and repair contractors.

"Most of our new residents have been in their homes for 40 to 50 years, and they have antiques they need to sell and a leaky roof to go with it! We help them with all of it; we re there for them every step of the way." From move-out and cleanup to move-in, unpack, and decorate, Garofolo is on hand.

"It can be a stressful process," she says, "but the reward is having the residents tell me how much they love it here at Seabrook and how they wished they had made the move sooner."
