“I had met a few different realtors along the way, especially in the months coming up to actually beginning to look for a home. Hearing from everyone I talked to just how competitive the housing market is I knew it was gonna be hard work. When I met Chris I got the genuine feeling that he’d work hard for me and boy was I right. The rumors were true the market to buy a home was tough with all these cash buyers and hedge funds buying single-family homes. Fortunately, I had a fighter on my side in Chris and we were able to make it happen. Looking forward to the next chapter in my life with my girlfriend”.
We truly appreciate you Chris!!
“My wife and I bought our first home last year, and Chris was our realtor. He was upfront and honest about all dealings, and went the extra mile to ensure that all involved parties dealt with us fairly. We bought the house using my VA loan, and Chris was able to navigate the government’s waters and provide a smooth, buying experience free of drama. I highly recommend Chris regardless of your buying or selling options. His knowledge of the industry is impeccable and his demeanor is friendly. He is easy to work with and will provide outstanding service”.
WHAT DO YOU DO BEFORE YOU MOVE A LOVED ONE INTO A SENIOR CARE CENTER?
There are many great senior moving service companies out there that help our seniors find a new home to live comfortably throughout the 4th quarter of their lives…BUT…there is a very important step that has been missing or under-considered by senior moving services providers and Care Facility Liaisons. How do they afford to pay for the new housing if most of their net worth is tied up in their home equity? Who will provide all-in-one services that they need to assist them and their families with all phases like senior downsizing services and senior moving company?
In our case, our parents had been living in their California home for decades and accumulated years of personal items and treasures. Although divorced for over 45 years, they remain friends to this day. They wanted to move out to Dallas, Texas to be closer to family in the 4th quarter of their lives. We knew it wouldn’t be easy, but the family was ready to help in any way possible, but their homes were full of “stuff”. The idea of sorting through decades of personal belongings, “collections” and “treasures”, then deciding what goes with them and what would be left behind, was extremely emotional and overwhelming for all involved.
At the beginning of the process, we were thinking where are we even going to start? The process included long back-and-forth flights, family members and friends were tag-teaming to help them organize, downsize, sort, sell, donate, haul, repair, deep clean, list and sell their homes. Moreover, our services are available in different cities like Dallas, Plano, Fort Worth, McKinney, Greenville, Rockwall, and Farmersville. It took over a year and a lot of money and resources, but we finally got them to the point that they could comfortably walk away from their homes, cash out on their hard-earned home equity and afford to move into an independent living facility located in Plano and in with family, Laurie and me, in Farmersville Texas.
Throughout this experience, it was clear that there were no reputable full-service companies that could handle everything in this huge process for us. Sure, a senior real estate specialist can sell houses, but not until it’s cleared out and prepared for sale. Various service providers will individually handle the other services that are needed, but you have to call each one individually, collect and compare estimates, schedule the services, and hope that they show up and do a good job. This is extremely difficult and stressful for the senior homeowner and family members who have limited time to focus on projects like this.
Okay, so I’ve painted a picture that many of you can be related to, so what’s the point, Chris? Well, Laurie and I were deeply inspired by our family’s extreme senior transition services experiences and wanted to create something special and meaningful for our senior communities and their adult children. We made mistakes and we learned how to keep others from making the same mistakes. We developed and launched combined end-to-end senior downsizing services and senior real estate specialist concierge as a precursor to, or in conjunction with, Senior moving services by the professional senior moving company and assisted and independent living facilities.
I am a licensed National Association of REALTORS® SRES® and MRP® certified REALTOR® with eXp Realty, so that part of the process is professionally covered. Regarding the senior transition services process, our highly enthusiastic and trained operations team has taken senior downsizing services and realty service operations to the next level with professionalism, attention to detail, patience, and empathy.
We developed 4TH Quarter transition services and senior real estate specialist services with the unique ability to coordinate ALL of the potential services that a senior homeowner will need senior when moving to a new, safer home. With an a la carte menu of service options, our clients choose all or a few services to complete their organizing, moving, and home sale process. As a bonus, we don’t get paid for any of our services until the client get paid at sale closing, and even then, it’s only a small portion of their home’s equity. Our clients go on to use that money to finance their moves and to support the 4th quarter of their financial lives.
Senior transition services plans start with a call and free, no-pressure consultation. We will take as long as necessary to talk with you and your involved family members about your specific goals and challenges. You can get our services in different cities in the US like Dallas, Plano, Fort Worth, McKinney, Greenville, Rockwall, and Farmersville. We will provide you with a fair and transparent assessment, then discuss the details and determine your best options going forward to reach those goals. We will earn and maintain your trust throughout the entire process.
