big move can be messy but it can be organized

The Big Move

Thanks to Cindy Bernstein of Aim4Order for this episode of Tips from the Pros about moving.

Whether you are downsizing, upsizing, moving for work or for another reason, making the move go as smoothly as possible is the main goal. Here are some tips to make things easier.

Create a timeline

Don’t wait until the last minute to do everything. Things like setting up your utilities, moving your cable, phone, internet access and forwarding your mail need to be done ahead of time. Schedule movers or rent a truck and organize your friends and family to help you move. Create a timeline with each task and when it needs to be completed – and stick to it.
Make lists if you need them and check off tasks as you complete them. Keep your lists and timeline together so you can easily find them.

In this Monthly Item of Value, we’re talking about hiring a professional. No matter what improvements you are doing to your home, it’s always a good idea to hire a pro.

See what clients are saying

Meet Sydnie and Joe Tylutki

What do you love most about your new home? 

It’s so hard to pick, but if I must, I would have to say the neighborhood! Our street is lined with friendly faces and helpful neighbors! They have a clan of people who get their steps in by walking around the block together, they have card nights, it’s perfect! You seriously can not walk outside without a few “Hellos!” I already feel like this is home and it’s only been a day!

If you could sum up your experience in one word what would that be?  Why?

Caring.
From start to finish it has been very clear that from Gigi, to the mortgage and title company, every single person that had a hand in our first time home buying experience has been so full of positive vibes and the utmost...

Meet the Wolslagles

meet the wolslagles

What do you love most about your new home?

The space! It feels so great to be able to have room for everything and to be able to entertain family and friends.

If you could sum up your experience in one word what would that be?  Why?

Smooth. This entire transaction was so smooth, everything from looking at houses to putting in a contract to settlement went by without any issues.

Was your experience what you expected? If not how did it differ?

It went went even better than expected. I was not expecting to find a house that we both loved on the first outing and I was not expecting the process to go so smoothly.

If you could offer advice to another buyer what would it be?

Figure out what area you want to live it...
