No matter the market, or your home s age or condition, you can sell your house. That s the message Erickson Realty & Moving Services is telling its customers. Erickson, a senior housing leader in the U.S., now offers potential residents access to its own army of real estate and moving experts to assist in the moving process. "We take the worry and stress out of the moving process," says Mike Redmond, vice president of Erickson Realty & Moving Services. "Our employees years of expertise will help you sell your home faster and, most importantly, ensure you get the right price." The personal touch In the past six months, with the help of Erickson Realty & Moving Services, more than 1,400 people have successfully sold their houses and moved to an Erickson community. The key to the company s success, Redmond says, is the personal touch. "When most houses are put up for sale, so often people just slap a for sale sign in front of the house and cross their fingers," he says. "You ll never sell your home that way." Erickson Realty & Moving Services assigns a personal moving consultant and a real estate expert to every client to personally assess the property s needs and help the owner prepare the house for sale. "The personal moving consultant is the homeowner s number one resource throughout the sale," Redmond says. "The consultant makes suggestions about things like staging and preparing the house and can also recommend the best local moving companies, downsizing services, and real estate agents." Sit back, relax, and sell your house! Joan Petrak, who lived in Delaware before moving to Maris Grove, an Erickson community in Pennsylvania, had unsuccessfully tried to sell her home both by herself and through a real estate agent. Her home languished on the market for over a year and a half. "I really wanted to move to Maris Grove; I just couldn t sell my house," she says. Petrak s solution was to move first to the Erickson community and then use Erickson Realty & Moving Services to sell her house. It worked the home that had given her headaches for more than a year sold in just over a month. "I wish I had used Erickson Realty & Moving Services first," she says. "I feel like Erickson took all the stress out of it. They had all the right people to help me get my house sold in a very short time." Petrak also praises her personal moving consultant. "She was just like a friend. She knew exactly what my house needed to sell. She made the best recommendations." Prayers answered "People tell us all the time that they would love to move to one of our communities but have to wait to sell their houses," Redmond says. "Sometimes homeowners just need an experienced helping hand in their corner to get the ball rolling. Erickson Realty & Moving Services does that." "Erickson Realty & Moving Services helped me sell my house quickly and get a really good price," Petrak says. "I feel like they were the answer to my prayers."
