Moving is stressful for anyone, but we know it can be especially trying for seniors, as well as family members and friends helping them out. The entire process can simply be overwhelming. That’s why we customize our services to helping seniors move as smooth a process as possible and get you the results you deserve.
Often seniors are moving to a smaller space than they currently live in. They’ve typically been in their home for many years and it’s filled with memories and lots of items that have been fondly collected over time. All of these things combine to make moving a house a difficult period of transition.

Our Specialized Services for Helping Seniors Move
Here are just a few of the things we do when helping seniors move, to ensure the move goes seamlessly.
1. Sorting Through the Contents
One of the most difficult parts of the process can be sorting through items to decide what to keep, sell, donate, or throw away. We are there to guide you every step of the way with plenty of helping hands to get the job done.
2. Recommending Trusted Partners
Over the years we’ve built relationships with trusted professional partners, from consignment shops to renovation specialists, who can assist with various stages of the process.
3. Providing Complimentary Home Staging
One of the key services we offer to help you sell your home is our complimentary home staging service. Whether your house is vacant or not, our experience and extensive research tells us that homes that are staged sell quicker and for a higher price than those that aren’t.
We have a stager who works exclusively with our team and will make sure your house is brought to its full potential. What’s more, if your home is vacant, our team will do regular weekly check-ups to ensure that everything is as it should be.
What Our Clients Say
Here’s a taste of what one our recent clients had to say about our specialized services:
“I was faced with the daunting task of selling my aunt and uncle’s house following the unexpected death of my uncle. I had been gradually packing the contents of their house when Jody came and introduced himself. Living nearby, and knowing my aunt and uncle, he came over to share his condolences and to ask if I needed any help. His timing could not have been better. Jody was a true professional. He went over what Thompson Sells offers in its package of services. When I saw that one of the services they can provide is assistance packing the house, I decided that this was the realtor for me. When I asked another realtor what he would do for me, he vaguely responded: “everything”. Here was Jody, spelling out EXACTLY what he would do in a highly informative presentation. And everything from helping me pack the contents of the house, to cleaning, to timing the sale, to the fabulous video and photos…absolutely every aspect of the service he and his team provided was professionally done and went above my expectations. Jody and his team are efficient, hard-working, respectful, helpful and very easy to work with. Even after the house had sold he and his team helped me deliver furniture to The Furniture Bank. They gave me tremendous support and I am very grateful. I highly recommend Jody Thompson and his team at Thompson Sells!”
