Here are some comments from Baird & Warner’s own Tom Gill.

Wendy Cole of Realtor Magazine wrote an interesting article about senior citizen relocation and senior move managers. Below are some excerpts and some of our comments.

Planning and pulling off a move can be stressful. It takes months of planning and organizing to get ready to a transition into a new home. What can be even more stressful is moving your parents or your parent’s in-law. That’s where the NASMM steps in.

The National Association of Senior Move Management was founded in 2002 in Arlington Virginia and their goal is to facilitate transition relocation for older adults. Their services are vast, and include social workers, professional organizers, and engineers.

Their work is essentially listed in their title. The goal is to aid you, or a parent in moving senior citizens to new homes. When planning a senior move, there are seemingly endless checks to cross off the list of things to do. A senior move manager is a great way to relieve stress on everyone involved, and help simplify the process for you and your busy schedule. A common misconception about this process however is the cost. According to NASMM’s executive director Mary Kay Buysse, the entire process is no more than $2,500. For the time and stress that is saved in the process, $2500 isn’t so bad.
