Judy Moecker utilized an Erickson Living-recommended real estate agent, downsizing organization, and moving company for her move to Hummingbird Square, a new residence building at Tallgrass Creek in Overland Park, Kans.

Judy Moecker utilized Erickson Living-recommended services for her move.

When Judy Moecker began thinking about moving to a retirement community, she knew Tallgrass Creek in Overland Park, Kans., was the place for her.

“It was right in my neighborhood,” says Judy. “I never had any doubt it was where I wanted to be.”

Judy was on Tallgrass Creek’s priority list so soon after the groundbreaking for Hummingbird Square, the community’s fourth residence building, she was able to select the apartment home she wanted.

“From the many floor plans, I opted for one with bedrooms on either side of the living room,” says Judy. “I was also able to get the southern exposure and balcony I wanted.”

A moving experience

As Hummingbird Square neared completion, Judy decided to take advantage of Erickson Realty and Moving Services.

An Erickson Living-recommended real estate agent helped Judy decide the appropriate time to put her townhome on the market. Their timing was great, as the townhome sold in four days.

Judy also utilized the services of another recommended vendor to help with downsizing. The team helped determine what pieces would work best in Judy’s new apartment and were there on moving day to oversee the entire operation.

“They were wonderful,” says Judy. “My kitchen was organized very much as it was in my former home and everything was move-in ready.”

Judy also chose recommended movers and found them to be pleasant, efficient, and careful.

Judy’s new residence at Tallgrass Creek comes with none of the house chores and responsibilities she was accustomed to handling.

“Taking care of [my townhome] was fairly constant,” says Judy who was among the first residents at Hummingbird Square. “It was a good feeling to shred all those past utility bills and no longer worry about home upkeep. I love my apartment!”
