Eagle's Trace
Galveston Crossing, the newest residence building at Eagle’s Trace, is scheduled to open in late summer 2018. The West Houston Erickson Living community has resources to help future residents sell their homes and prepare for a move.

After an unnerving eight months aboard a meteorological roller coaster, which started with Hurricane Harvey in August, rounded a snowy curve in December, and ushered in freezing temperatures in January, the first hints of spring are finally popping up in Houston.

And with them come “For Sale” signs that mark the beginning of the spring selling season.

Eagle's Trace
Ethel and Alan Groudan moved to Houston from New Jersey in June 2017. Their shared love of art is evident in their San Jacinto-style apartment at Eagle’s Trace, the Erickson Living community in West Houston.

After many years in their New Jersey home, Alan and Ethel Groudan wanted to spend their retirement years near family.

“We have a son in Colorado and a son in Texas,” says Ethel, a retired psychotherapist. “We looked at retirement communities in both states.”

The former terrace of Hy and Marilyn Gluck’s Jefferson-style apartment home is now their plant room.

It’s a somewhat familiar story. One spouse wants to move to a senior living community, but the other spouse wants nothing to do with that idea.

Hy and Marilyn Gluck, who now live at Devonshire at PGA National, Erickson Living’s senior living community in Palm Beach Gardens, moved there from a one-story villa in PGA National’s Heather Run community.

Known for its five-star service and world-class cuisine, Devonshire at PGA National, Erickson Living’s senior living community in Palm Beach Gardens, provides a resort-style atmosphere and a commitment to excellence that doesn’t exist at other communities.

Windsor Run
Rachel Gilbert is Windsor Run’s personal moving consultant.

“The biggest benefit of the Erickson Realty and Moving Services program is the peace of mind it provides our future residents,” says Windsor Run’s new personal moving consultant Rachel Gilbert, who describes herself as “the biggest cheerleader throughout the moving process.”

In just a couple of months, Windsor Run, Erickson Living’s first community in North Carolina, will open its doors to its first residents.

Personal Moving Consultant  Diane Thometz says home sellers can get a jump on the spring real estate market by listing their houses in March.

Temperatures could still be quite chilly in Maryland in March, but as far as the real estate market is concerned, spring has already sprung.

Many people think the prime time for spring home sales is April, May, and June. But if you want to get a jump on the spring market—and increase your chances for a successful sale—the time to list your house is now.

One of the things that attracted Lorenzo and Ruth Hayes to Riderwood was the maintenance-free lifestyle they now enjoy.

When it comes to your home and your lifestyle in retirement, you probably have a few items on your wish list.

After decades of mowing the lawn and shoveling the snow, maybe maintenance-free living is on the top of your list. Maybe financial security is your No. 1 priority, or perhaps you’re really looking forward to making new friends.

Oak Crest
People who live at Oak Crest enjoy nearby access to myriad activities and amenities—not to mention several dining venues—just like cruise ship passengers.
