"Sharon falls into our top category of “Best of the Best”

We have purchased eleven houses over the past 40 years due to our military life as well as working for a company that transferred us to new areas after military retirement. Needless to say, we have had many realtors for each of these transactions. Not all realtors are the same and have compassion for the buyer’s wishes. Sharon understood what our needs and wants were and gave us her undivided attention. She was always available when we called, scheduled houses for us to look at, and gave us important information on each property so we were well informed. This process took several months and Sharon was always patient with our situation. Once we found our house, we ran into several roadblocks. Sharon was on top of all of these issues, taking the steps needed so we could finalize and close. Of all the realtors we have used over the years, Sharon falls into our top category of “Best of the Best”. If we should ever decide to sell, Sharon will be our choice of realtors.

Helpful Relocation Tips

With the right resources and the right real estate professional on your side, you'll have the keys to your country home in no time. Follow these tips to make your move as easy as possible.


Plan Your Move Ahead of Time

Begin planning for your relocation at least a month or two before your move. The sooner you can pack and coordinate with the moving company, the better. During this stage, be sure to...

  • Stock up on packing materials — boxes, tape, packing peanuts, and bubble wrap are great choices
  • Start small — begin packing one room at a time so you don't get overwhelmed
  • Be selective about what you pack — host a yard sale to get rid of any unused items, or consider donating to a local charity
  • Review all moving documents before signing — this is vital if you are planning to use professional movers


As Moving Day Approaches

In the days and weeks leading up to your move, finish packing all of your belongings into boxes. Don't forget to...

  • Label everything — consider marking each box by the room it belongs to
  • Pack fragile items last — be sure to wrap glassware in bubble wrap, towels, or winter clothing for extra protection


During the Move

On Moving Day, keep as much important information within reach as possible. That way, you'll have easy access to the essentials if you need to get to them quickly. Be sure to...

  • Prepare an "essentials bag" — this can include a change of clothes, paperwork, medications, and a phone charger
  • Make an "open me first" box pack items like toilet paper, instant coffee, and a sleeping bag or inflatable mattress just in case you beat the moving truck to your new home
  • Wait to unpack — once you arrive to your new home, take the time to clean your home while it's empty
