Christmas decorations

As a personal moving consultant, I hear this one question all the time from people starting to downsize: “Where did I get all this stuff?” I hate to tell you, but it only gets worse during the holidays when we pull out decorations that add even more to the clutter.  

Greenspring
David and Lana Massoni moved after 30 years to Greenspring in Springfield, Va.

After attending an open house at Greenspring, David and Lana Massoni were ready to sell the house they’d lived in for the past 30 years.

Highland Springs
Barbara Buehler enjoyed a seamless move to Highland Springs, thanks to Erickson Realty and Moving Services.

Barbara Buehler’s home of 37 years in Plano, Tex., was packed full of memories.

“I hosted the annual New Year’s Eve party for our neighborhood,” says Barbara. “My house was also the last stop when my neighbors and I got together for progressive dinners.”

Seabrook

Rona Mininni knew exactly what life would be like at Seabrook, the Erickson Living community in Tinton Falls, N.J., because her father had lived there. What she didn’t expect was how easy her move would be. 

Charlestown
The nature trail is one of the many amenities that attracted Betty Caldwell to Charlestown.

Betty Caldwell loved everything about her Columbia, Md., home, except the stairs. Thirty years of climbing up and down three levels had taken its toll on her knees and got her thinking that maybe it was time for a change.

Tallgrass Creek
Enjoying the latest edition of the Tribune in their temporary residence at Tallgrass Creek are Janet and Bob Butterworth, who will move to their new home in Hummingbird Square when it’s completed next summer.

When Janet and Bob Butterworth decided to move to a retirement community, Tallgrass Creek, an Erickson Living community in Overland Park, Kans., was the obvious choice. 

Brooksby Village
Carol and Bill Scouler used Erickson Realty and Moving Services to help with their property sale and moving needs.

Shortly after Bill and Carol Scouler returned from their annual winter getaway to Florida, the couple received a call from Jane Kiegel, sales counselor at Brooksby Village in Peabody, Mass.

Hiring a moving company that is licensed, insured, and bonded is critical.

Whether you’re planning a move locally or long distance, moving can be stressful. One of the most important factors in planning a move is to hire the right mover for the job. Not knowing what to look for while searching through the vast range of moving options can be overwhelming.

Ashby Ponds
Priority list members George and Bernice Rader experienced a stress-free move to Ashby Ponds this summer with the help and guidance of Personal Moving Consultant Elizabeth McCumiskey.

“You just know when it’s time to move,” says George Rader. “We could no longer keep up with maintaining a big house. We looked at several retirement communities and were impressed with the large range of activities and services available at Ashby Ponds.”
