Marilyn and Thomas Hady relied on Personal Moving Consultant Anna Greves and her recommendations on trusted realty and moving vendors to help them with their move to Greenspring in Springfield, Va.

Earlier this year, Thomas and Marilyn Hady moved from their Springfield, Va., house of 43 years to Greenspring, with the help of Personal Moving Consultant Anna Greves.

“Even though we were moving just a few miles down the road, the help we received was tremendous,” says Thomas. “I don’t think we could have done it without Greves’s guidance. She recommended a real estate agent and downsizing and moving companies, all of whom have worked with people moving to Greenspring.”

Greves first visited the Hadys in their house with a layout of their selected two-bedroom, two-bathroom Lancaster apartment home. She helped them determine what items they would bring with them to Greenspring and how it would all fit.

“It was very helpful to see how everything would look,” says Marilyn.

Greves also discussed real estate options and the ways in which the Hadys should prepare their house for sale. 

“We really did not want to do a lot to sell our house and we didn’t need to,” says Thomas. “Our house sold in less than three weeks.”

Reliable teamwork

Throughout the move process, Thomas and Marilyn worked with an Erickson Living-recommended downsizing company that helped them sell or give away items they no longer needed.

“It would have been an impossible task without their help,” says Marilyn. “We sold some items at auction, made numerous donations, gave away books to our local library, and gave our most meaningful items to our children.”

With their house sold and downsizing complete, the couple then looked to a recommended moving company to help them pack and move. On January 28, 2016, just one day after the historic blizzard, the Hadys began their new life at Greenspring.

“We really like living here,” says Marilyn. “We are so thankful for all the help we received during our move and continue to appreciate all the great, thoughtful people we meet.”

Since their move, Thomas and Marilyn have hosted numerous friends and family at their new home and continue to involve themselves both at Greenspring and within the local community.

“Moving could have been very stressful,” says Thomas. “We are very grateful to Anna and her team for making the whole process as smooth as possible.”
