~ Helen Babcock, former Regional Vice President of Carlson GMAC Real Estate
We specialize in easing the transition of moving from one home to the next and take great pride in the expertise and sensitivity we provide our clients as they go through each phase of the moving process.
Downsizing can be stressful, time consuming and exhausting; there are many decisions that need to be made – which furnishings do you move with you, which furnishings do you pass on to family and friends, and what do you do with the rest? How will your furnishings fit in your new residence? These are just a few of the many questions and necessary decisions that need to be made when you downsize to a smaller home.
We will visit both your current home and your new home to look at your existing furnishings and evaluate your new space. We’ll discuss your personal style, your vision and your requirements for the use and function for each room in your new home and then help you decide which of your existing furnishings are best suited for your new space. We’ll also provide assistance with the items that you will not be bringing to your new home. This includes providing you with resources for the sale, donation, recycling, or disposal of your no longer needed items. Then using the furnishings you have selected to move with you, we’ll customize your new home according to your specifications creating warm and inviting, functional rooms. When the time comes for you to move in, your new home will already be a reflection of you; it will feel like your home, not just your new home. As part of this service, we also can provide a list of suggested items that will extend or complete your desired look. We can also find, select and purchase needed items for you as part of our Home Décor Shopping Service.
Spectacular-Spaces will save you time and energy, remove the stress from your move and simplify the moving process. Beginning with the preparation of your property for the real estate market and culminating with the move into your new residence we offer services to make downsizing and the moving process as positive and simplified as possible.
DownSizing- Moving Made Easy - Services
Spectacular-Spaces provides many services to assist our clients as they move from their larger home to a smaller home, retirement community or an assisted living residence. While many of our Staging, Design and Color services are appropriate for our clients who are downsizing we also offer additional services that are more specific to the needs of our downsizing clients. Each service is independent of the other, can be modified according to our clients’ needs and can be taken on at our client's schedule or preference.

If we do the shopping for you, you set a budget prior to shopping and we strictly adhere to it.
