Learn more about Karen + Gail

Since 2001 we’ve helped hundreds of baby boomers and senior adults downsize, de-clutter and move. Many make the often difficult transition from family homes into seniors’ residences. Others just want to be able to squeeze their “stuff” into a smaller space.

In the course of the average day, we sort through everything from jewelry that literally fills up boxes, to collections of shoes. We see first-hand how moving for seniors is often accompanied by feelings of guilt, anxiety, and excitement. Just the thought of going through years of accumulated treasures, downsizing and getting organized, causes people to become overwhelmed.

With Karen’s background in recreation and gerontology and Gail’s teaching career, we think we make a pretty good team to help you make a move that’s as stress-free as possible.

We both absolutely love the work we do and look forward to meeting and helping you.
