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.” 

Wind Crest
Donna Mason, who moved to Wind Crest, says the Erickson Living community in Highlands Ranch, Colo., meets all her needs, including complimentary moving coordination, which made her quick, two-month move from Greeley, Colo., easy as pie.

Donna Mason knew she wanted to live at Wind Crest before she was even old enough to move there. When she turned 65 and moved to the Erickson Living community in Highlands Ranch, Colo., her girlfriends told her she was too young. Her response? 

Ann's Choice
Mary Ann Casele and her cat both enjoy living at Ann’s Choice, the Erickson Living community in Bucks County, Pa.

Moving and downsizing can be a time to not only simplify life but to discover what belongings truly matter—those that bring you joy. 

Eagle's Trace
Jean Prince used moving resources available through Erickson Realty and Moving Services to help sell her house and move to Eagle’s Trace.

In the span of a year, Jean Prince lost her husband, sold her house of 37 years, and moved to Eagle’s Trace, the Erickson Living community in West Houston.

“It was a whirlwind,” says Jean. “So much changed in a year.”
