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.

We know that you’re not supposed to have favorites, but the project in Waitsfield that we have been working on has quickly become simply that: our fav! It’s a unique situation because the homeowners purchased the property and then left the country for 4 months. During that time, we have spent endless hours planning, designing, managing contractors, accepting deliveries, and selecting all of the home furnishings, paint colors, light fixtures, flooring, and furniture to create a beautiful and livable home for our lovely clients. Even though the job is not complete, here are a few photos to show the progression of our work. Check it out:

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!”
