Divorce happens…we can help.

When starting a business, one of the most important and difficult jobs is often finding your target audience. At Moov Consultants we have a “Say Yes!” attitude and so it has made our search for our target audience a little more difficult in some ways and much easier in others. The Come One, Come All approach has kept us busy with a variety of new clients. It’s part of what makes our job so much fun, we truly aren’t sure where the next inquiry will come from.

However, a few of our most recent clients have helped us open our eyes and narrow our focus to recently divorced men and women. Divorce happens…good or bad, it’s simply sometimes unavoidable. Regardless of the outcome, a  family or a couple are typically going from one house to two. Temporary or permanent, in most cases, someone is moving out and finding a new place to live. This transition is often overwhelming and here’s where we can help.

We understand that the time soon after a divorce—when people are trying to establish a new life in a place of vulnerability—moving, packing, unpacking, buying furniture, and styling a home is often simply too overwhelming to comprehend. Questions are often discussed and agreed upon during mediation, but who is carrying out the ACTION and when?

The importance of feeling settled in a comfortable space and, in some cases, establishing a new normal for children post-divorce is critical. We can help bring a sense of style and function to a home. We often work side-by-side with the moving company to unpack and set up the entire home.

We specialize in interior decorating services that bring together the home— from stocking the kitchen and baths with necessary items to creating sensible floor plans and layouts. We suggest paint colors, upgrades, lighting, and furniture options working within all budgets. Our clients are typically settled in and ready to continue life within a day or two!

Our goal is to help create beautiful, livable spaces where life can start fresh while keeping the process affordable. If you find yourself needing help in putting all the pieces together. Please, give us a call. You won’t regret it….guaranteed!

 

Moov Consultants….helping seniors, families, and individuals!

It’s not rocket science, so why is it so difficult?  Moving can be a daunting task that often keeps people living in a situation that is less than ideal. “The thought of moving is paralyzing to me.” a recent client admitted. “I walk from room to room and simply do not know where to begin.” This is what we hear in almost every home we visit.

From seniors to young families to individuals, Moov Consultants is a full-service company that makes every single aspect of a move seamless. Here’s what another client said:

“I am in a grateful stupor – I can’t believe the gift that you have given me over the past few days. I am so appreciative…”

Whether you are moving by choice or facing the reality that you can no longer live independently, Moov Consultants is here to help. We will come into your home and do as much or as little as you would like. We help you sort through your belongings and decide what needs to be kept and what can be sold or donated. We then start packing your belongings in labeled boxes in preparation for the movers. We can also pack and stage your home so that it is market-ready.

This is an emotional process for many and our backgrounds in education and nursing are an asset to this process. As mothers with young families and daughters of aging parents, we start each project with the heart. Understanding that regardless of where you are in life, sometimes you simply need help.

But why Moov Consultants? There are a variety of businesses in the area that help with organizing and de-cluttering, even packing and moving; HOWEVER, we take things to the next level. We do offer the above services, but we go the extra mile to create a home you truly love. We unpack your boxes and set up your kitchen. We help with styling bookshelves and mantles. We advise on paint colors or a fun new wallpaper. We hang curtains and organize linen closets. We help with furniture layout and are creative in using what you have in new spaces. We truly are a full-service business that helps with not only every aspect of a move but with interior decorating, managing subcontractors, and most of all making your experience as affordable and enjoyable as possible.

Staging your home with Moov: how we’ll get your house ready for market

One of the key steps in selling your home is getting it staged—the process of rearranging or tidying your home to entice potential buyers. This comes naturally for some, but for others it can be downright overwhelming and time consuming. Sometimes all it takes is having another person coming in with fresh eyes and a single focus—that’s where Moov can help.

We work like a modern-day Mary Poppins: moving room to room, making changes here and there, adding essential items, hiding wires, opening blinds. We know that if we can stage your home so that others are able to easily imagine themselves living in your space, your home is one step closer to being sold. If potential buyers aren’t distracted by your belongings, then they are better able to imagine themselves settling in and creating the home they’ve always dreamed of.

This process recently came to life in Richmond, Vermont – the community we call home! Robin, our client, was trying to sell her house. She had worked tirelessly painting, cleaning, and packing her family’s belongings for their big move. The For Sale by Owner sign was ready to be placed in the front yard and the photographer was scheduled to take photos for the online listing.

We met with Robin a few days prior to the photographer’s appointment to get a full understanding of her needs. Together we created a plan that worked for her schedule and her family, and we were able to stage her home efficiently and stylishly.

“Marlene and Claire were a huge help in staging my home,” says Robin. “As an owner selling my property, I needed direction about how to get it ready to sell. They talked with me about the process and developed a plan with me. Their kind, fun, direct style gets it all done without stress! They used some of what I had to decorate the house and brought in beautiful items to complement it all—and it sold within the week! I couldn’t have done it without Moov!”
