I'm moving to a cottage at a local Continuing Care Retirement Community?  Why should I have Brandywine Senior Transitions handle my move? Can't I do it all myself?

Packing and moving from one location to another can be exhausting - especially if you're downsizing at the same time.

Many folks have made the move on their own but very few will tell you that it was quick and easy. In fact, seniors (and their families) tell us the whole effort was a major source of stress that they would have preferred to do without.

Why not let Brandywine Senior Transitions' senior move manager services relieve that stress by doing the work for you? Call or email us today!

My mother is moving into an assisted living facility and won't need many of the household items she owns. What can I do with her surplus possessions?

I'm selling my home.  Why should I clean, repair, and dress my home for sale? It seems like a lot of bother and expense.

Home buyers want the same thing you do - a clean, attractive home they can imagine living in.

According to Money Magazine (11/2004), cleaning, repairing and dressing your home for sale can "help make your home appeal to a wider audience by eliminating distractions...The result is a neutral but attractive environment that lets the bones of the home shine through." This effort pays off in homes that sell faster and at better prices than homes put on the market without some polishing.

Don't want to do it all yourself? No problem!   Our Senior Move Managers can help you make the most from one of your biggest assets.
