Learn more about Karen + Gail

For almost 20 years, we have helped Boomers and older adults downsize, organize and move. Many of our clients are moving for the first time in ages as they make the transition from family homes to condos, retirement residences and care communities.

We work with our clients to organize their treasures, help them decide what to take to their new home and then figure out what to do with the items that remain. Moving can often be accompanied by feelings of guilt, anxiety, and excitement and having an objective person to help with the decision-making seems to make the process that much easier to handle..

With Karen’s background in recreation and gerontology and Gail’s teaching experience, we are a terrific team to make your move as stress-free as possible.

"It's YOUR life. It's YOUR move"...our philosophy to guide us through the process of helping YOU organize, downsize and move.

simply yours...
