Senior Transition Program

We Help You Through Every Challenge You'll Face When Downsizing

Want Your Home Sale Handled By A Caring Expert?

Everyone Needs A Helping Hand When Transitioning. Treat Yourself To Our Full-Service Program.

Step 1: Your Vision, Your Reality

Where You Are Going And How We Help You Get There

Free Home Valuation and Market Analysis

The first step is to size up your greatest asset: your home. How much money can you expect to get when you sell your home? What does this mean for your future options?

We provide you an expert home valuation so that you can move forward and make decisions based on real data.

Find The Perfect Place To Live Using Senior Placement Experts

What kind of place would you like to move to? Would a condo suit your active lifestyle? Maybe an active living community with the perks of medication oversight is what you need. Or perhaps the support of assisted living or a continuing care community is right for you or your partner.

Since there are so many options to choose from, we work with senior placement experts who know Bay Area senior communities inside and out. At no added cost, you get expert referrals to find the community that is right for you.

Resolve Family Disagreements And See Eye-To-Eye

Sometimes children and parents can't agree, or partners envision different things. Whatever the cause, family disagreements could bring your home transition to a screeching halt.

That's why we bring in extra help. Facilitators and family coaches from a Bay Area-based neutral conflict resolution consultant can help you and your family members come together and solve problems in a safe and positive environment.

Step 2: Plan A Smooth Move

When Moving, It's Important to Lose the Junk and Treasure The Memories. We Can Help.

We Will Refer You to a Certified Estate Appraisal Company

 "Don't throw anything away!" is what we often hear from our estate sale experts. You'll be amazed at the prices a licensed and bonded professional can get for the treasures you leave behind.

At the same time, there is also a new reality in today's market about what has value. 

To make sure no treasure goes underestimated, the appraisal company you choose will help to value all of your belongings.

Professional Move Managers Make The Process Smooth And Organized

When you're overwhelmed by the thought of moving, we recommend working with our trusted Senior Move Managers. They are experts in making senior moves simple and stress-free.

Look Before You Leap: Expert Space-Planning For Your New Home

Once you know where you are going to live, our Senior Move Manager works with you to plan your new space. Together you will work on the layout of your new home to determine what furniture you'll be taking with you.

Get Expert, Caring Help Sorting Through Your Belongings

Your memories and stories matter. With each item, we'll mark what will go to the new home and what will go to the estate sale, consignment shop, charitable donations, or be given away.

All in your own time, without rush or stress.

Your Move Plan Is Tailored To Your Unique Situation

Every move is different. Whether you will be moving before the home sale or need to stay in your home until it sells, together we'll create a plan of action that you feel comfortable with.

Step 3: Ask Us How You Can Move Into Your Home in One Day

A Fast, Stress-Free Move To Your New, Perfectly Furnished Space

On Moving Day, Trusted Professionals Supervise The Placement Of Every Item And Piece Of Furniture

On moving day, your professional move managers go with the movers, unpack every piece of furniture, and place each of your belongings in your new home according to the plan. Then they remove all the boxes and every trace of the move so that you can enjoy your new home from the very first day.

Move Managers Take Care Of Any Estate Sale, Consignments, Charitable Donations, and Haul-Aways

Don't worry about how you will deal with items you will leave behind. Your professional move managers will distribute each item according to the plan you've made together, leaving you free to enjoy your new home.

Sleep In Your Own Bed The Very Same Day You Move

There's no reason to make moving a long, drawn-out process, which is why we have your movers orchestrate a same-day move. This means that, on the evening of the very first day, you will be sleeping in your own bed in your new, completely furnished home.

Step 4: Make Your Home Irresistible To Buyers

We Agree On Upgrades That Work With Your Goals

When you work with Anita Gat you're never pushed to remodel your home before it goes on the market.

Instead, we'll discuss your preferences and the variety of options you have. Together we'll come up with a plan that you feel confident in.

If You Want To Upgrade And Sell Before Moving Out, We Make It Work

Not everyone can move into a new home before their current home sells. If you need to wait for your home to sell before making the move, we can help smooth out the process.

We work with you to plan the upgrades, staging, and showing of your house at appropriate times. Whatever your situation, our personalized plan of action will ensure that you're comfortable throughout the process.

The Senior Transition Program: Does It Cost Money?

You'll Still Need To Pay Movers, Contractors, And Other Third Parties For The Work They Do

The upgrades that you choose to make on your house are all up to you. We can help you set a limit and make sure the services you choose fall within your budget, but we are not affiliated financially with any of the third-party contractors or helpers we recommend.

All Professional Services (Home Upgrades, Estate Liquidation, Move Management) Are Completely Optional

As part of our work with you, we may suggest professional services that can help make your transition smoother and less stressful. You are never obligated to use these services and we will never pressure you to do so.

We don't receive any financial gain from the services you choose to use. That way, our only focus is on you and making your transition to a new home smooth, safe, and stress-free.

So, What's Stopping You From Embarking On YOUR Senior Transition?

The Problem: No Money To Pay For Needed Upgrades

The Solution: Our deferred-payment contractor will do the necessary work to get your house in great selling condition, and you won't be charged a dime until escrow closes. Upgrades can be done up-front and depending on your situation, at no cost until your home sells.

The Problem: Generations of Stuff Overwhelm You

The Solution: Our Professional Move Managers take all the overwhelm out of downsizing. From helping you go through your belongings to supervising estate sales and donations, Professional Move Managers help you through an emotional and difficult process and into a life of new possibilities.

The Solution: Our Aging in Harmony partners help siblings and parents work together to resolve their differences. They've helped everyone from feuding heirs to well-meaning children and partners who just can't see eye-to-eye.

With the help of family coaches and facilitators, family members learn to solve problems and work in harmony in a safe and positive way.
