Transitions is designed specifically to help seniors and their families “right-size” in their current home or “down-size” for a move to a new home.
Senior Move Advisor Jana Granzella has joined the Armistead team to head the launch of this new service.
Transitions services are client-focused. A great deal can be accomplished in very little time, saving both time and money, including:
Estate Dispersal: Transitions also provides services for the dispersal of household belongings after the death of a loved one. A death in the family introduces a whole new set of responsibilities, from removing personal belongings to the complete shutdown of an established home site. Daily responsibilities or distances can make these tasks seem even more overwhelming. Transitions can help make these tasks feasible and timely. Working under direction of family members, attorneys or trust officers, the Transitions team will organize and distribute the estate accordingly. From simple sorting to arrangements for cleaning, repair work and real estate services, this can take the pressure off already trying times and is as easy as a phone call.
Pre-Planning: In addition, Transitions offers individuals and families pre-planning, providing direction for future dispersal of personal and household belongings.
Transitions is designed to fill in on the things that seniors and their family members can’t or don’t want to do. It can mean a consulting session for those who can do some of the things themselves or doing each step of the move from start to finish. Each client is different with special needs. Transitions can do as little or as much as required.
Fees: Charges are based on hourly rates with a sliding price scale based on level of service. Frequently items left over in the home that are sold cover the costs of Transitions services.
