Confucius once remarked, “A man who does not plan long ahead will find trouble at his door.” Helping future Windsor Run community members plan for and execute their move is the number one priority of Personal Moving Consultant June Parish.

“I want to make sure that everyone who wants to sell their house and move to Windsor Run can do so easily and with as little stress as possible,” says Parish, who has worked as a resale listing agent and sales counselor for more than nine years. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the table every time she meets with prospective residents. 

“I’ve learned that each move is different and equally important,” she says. “Whether moving from down the street or out-of-state, I’m able to coordinate the resources needed for a successful move.”

Recently, Parish talked with the Tribune about the most frequently asked questions she receives from people who are interested in living at Windsor Run. 

Tribune: The term “personal moving consultant” may be unfamiliar. Could you explain how you will help people move to Windsor Run? 

Parish: As a personal moving consultant, it is my number-one priority to make the move from an individual’s current house to Windsor Run as stress-free and seamless as possible. To do that, I first meet with people in their current homes to discuss their expectations and to create a comprehensive selling and moving plan based on their individual needs. 

During our meeting, I provide information on the wide variety of resources available through Erickson Realty and Moving Services, including real estate agents, downsizing experts, clean-out services, packers, and movers. Everyone I refer is screened and has been handpicked because of the quality of service they provide. 

Whether people need a place to donate belongings during the downsizing process or they are concerned about how their treasured furniture will fit in their new home, I can help. They will also receive the best real estate market advice from our preferred real estate agents, all of whom come highly recommended and are top sellers in the area. 

The most important thing people need to know is that I will be with them every step of the moving process. I make it my job to keep everyone up to date and stress-free. 

Tribune: Is now a good time to sell a house?  

Parish: I tell people that the benefits of moving now are numerous. The current real estate market boasts low inventory coupled with low interest rates. That means there are qualified buyers looking for homes to buy. 

No longer are people perusing their neighbors’ open houses or visiting just to “see what’s out there.” During the spring months, many potential buyers are looking to purchase a house before the end of the summer. This is especially true of families who wish to move and settle in before the start of a new school year.

Tribune: What services does Erickson Realty and Moving Services provide future community members prior to beginning the moving process?

Parish: I’m excited to announce that beginning this spring, we will host a four-part series of events for everyone who has reserved a home at Windsor Run. Each event will focus on a specific topic, integral to the moving process. We will kick off the series this month with ERMS 101, followed by downsizing in April with our senior move managers. In May we will host a presentation on selling antiques, and the series will finish with a presentation on real estate agents and movers in June.

These seminars are a great way for our future residents to begin planning for their move to Windsor Run as well as an opportunity to meet their future neighbors.
