Hiring a move manager, or how to sleep easy during your move

Hiring a move manager, or how to sleep easy during your move

You’ve decided to sell your house, and before you know it the wheels are in motion. You’re waking up in the middle of the night running through your mental to-do list…

  • Find a real estate agent
  • Declutter the entire house (oh, and get the kids to come home and do it with you)
  • Get estimates from movers
  • Make home repairs you’ve been putting off for years
  • What else am I missing??

Worrying about these things — let alone actually doing them — can become a full-time job and all-consuming obsession.

Enter the move manager! Our job is to take on those burdens for you. We strategize, coordinate, and supervise all of the moving parts (no pun intended) so you can go on with your life and sleep through the night knowing everything’s taken care of.

A move manager (also known as a move coordinator or move concierge) can support you in every phase of your move, from preparing your home for sale, getting you ready to move, supervising on move day, and helping you settle into your new life in your new home. All with the goal of minimizing the disruption to your life.

As project managers and personal concierges, we create a plan and a schedule, and then make sure everyone involved knows what needs to be done, when, and by whom. And we make sure it actually gets done!
