Bespoke service for retirees warmly received
In this blog two weeks ago, we described a new initiative we were all set to introduce, designed to provide a bespoke downsizing service for retirees.
Moving house in later life can be a daunting prospect, especially when health problems arise or a partner is lost, leaving all the weight on one set of shoulders. A property can very quickly become too much to look after, with maintenance liabilities mounting and gardens, once the pride and joy, growing wild. Shops and public transport become unreachable and family members fret. The longer all this goes unchecked, the more difficult life becomes.
Having therefore recognised an increasing need for ‘hands on’ help to downsize, we set about arranging a marketing programme for a scheme we promote as ‘Time2moveOn’- A bespoke personal moving service for retirees. Time2moveOn will be the retirees ally, where we will listen to every concern and need before offering a carefully assessed, step by step, plan for the best way ahead.
The service is geared to manage our clients moves from start to finish. It will include valuation advice on the existing home, a full personal estate agency service, assistance with the onward move, liaison with solicitors to assist a smooth passage, expert associates available if needed for independent financial solutions, also help with clearing and cleaning, so often a worrying burden during the moving out process. We can alleviate so much worry.
Director Chris Willey is managing the service. Now of state pension age himself, but still at the helm of Wilsons, Chris has been specialising in planning sales for retirees on an ever increasing scale. With 35 years’ service to the business under his belt, he is well known to hundreds of Taunton residents, many of whom have now reached retirement age and are returning to him for help for what they expect to be their penultimate or last move.
Chris relishes the role and, with the promotion of the scheme up and running, he is already being called upon for consultations. To learn more about Time2moveOn, the benefits and reassurance it can offer, take a look at ‘Retirees’ at the head of the website and if it appeals to you, let us know, we’ll be delighted to help.
