Our Collective of Home Transition Professionals
What We Do
Home Transition Pros is a collective of experienced professionals who specialize in senior moves, downsizing, estate closeouts and whole-home transitions. We give you resources to do everything you can do yourself, and connect you with trusted professionals in your area for everything else.
1) We offer free resources, tools, tips and advice to educate you about the Downsizing process.
We hope the resources, tools, tips, and advice we provide on this site will help you approach your senior move or home transition with confidence.
Start with our free resources that include a daily downsizing tip, detailed plans with checklists, a comprehensive guide, and exclusive advice from the pros. We offer detailed advice and resources for every step of the process. Visit our blogs and articles for inspiration, personal stories, and solutions to common problems.
2) We connect you with vetted transition experts in your community.
When it’s time to bring in extra hands, we’ll help you connect with vetted professionals in your area. Our local partners are Senior Move Managers, Professional Organizers and other transition support services. These affiliates are independently-owned businesses that provide services through their own customary fee schedules and practices.
Our strategic network allows us to offer high-quality personalized referrals, knowledge sharing, and scheduling coordination that streamlines the senior move or home transition process.
How We Do It
Our strength is in our flexibility to offer highly customized solutions for your particular situation. We actively and continually seek out and cultivate business relationships with qualified and experienced home transition experts throughout the country.
In addition, our national partnerships give us access to the top talent and niche specialities that provide the best possible experience:

Vetting and Verification
We prioritize the trustworthiness of our partners. Verified members of the Home Transition Pros Collective submit evidence of professional licensing, credentials and designations, as well as current proof of business insurance. We also independently verify performance and reliability through professional reference checks and independent research.
We're Ready to Help
We understand that approaching a major home transition or senior move can be an overwhelming prospect. Our experience also teaches us that many people stay in their family homes for years beyond what makes sense physically, financially or practically. If you’re feeling apprehensive about taking the plunge, your certainly not alone. Common fears of downsizers include:
- leaving an important stage of their life behind.
- making mistakes about what to keep and what to leave behind.
- paying too much for home repairs, organizing, moving, real estate fees, etc.
- sorting/managing photos, paper and documents.
- physically removing unwanted furnishings and other items.
These are all certainly valid concerns, but the best way to mitigate these risks is to start thinking about your plans while you have the time and energy to make deliberate decisions. When you consult with a home transition professional early in the process, you can enjoy greater control and more overall comfort throughout the process.
