Our Collective of Service Professionals

At Simply Downsized LLC, we help empty nesters, seniors and older adults who are planning to downsize their homes and relocate in Northern Virginia.  We offer assistance as needed, from basic planning and referrals to managing the entire downsizing and relocation process from start to finish.

While each trusted partner is an independently-owned business providing services through customary fee schedules and practices, our strategic network of home improvement professionals provides personalized referrals, information sharing, and scheduling coordination that enables our team to simplify the home transition process.

Our Vetted Collective Offers 5 Wins for Professional Organizers and Senior Move Managers

As the owner of Simply Downsized LLC, a consulting and concierge service that focuses on senior downsizing and estate closeouts, it’s my job to know everyone offering high value and customer-focused transition services in our area.

My business relies on experienced professional organizers, move managers and project managers, especially those with an interest in older people. That’s why it’s critical for me to connect with, and support, those small businesses that serve our common clients.

At the April 2020 meeting of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals DC Chapter (NAPO-DC), my business was highlighted in the Business Partner Spotlight. I offered my fellow business partners and chapter members five wins that result from a strategic partnership in our vetted collective:

1) Build Credibility and Showcase Expertise: I routinely invite specialists from the collective to share tips of their trade on our content marketing website HomeTransitionPros.com through blog posts or articles. It’s great exposure for the professional, and it provides our clients with the expert tips they expect from the site. I’m grateful to those who have already participated, and I have tons more ideas for future topics.

2) Meet Like-Minded Businesses: The collective of professionals I maintain through HomeTransitionPros.com is carefully selected and vetted. It’s free to join, and that’s the pool of people I pull from when I’m making referrals. There is a form on the “Join our Team” where I invite interested businesses and individuals to start the conversation.

3) Meet Potential Clients. I work with licensed, insured and qualified consultants to map out the perfect solution for each of our clients. Project planners are the “first in” and can develop client relationships that extend to additional or long-term engagements for themselves and others in the collective.

4) Add New Skills. Our clients enjoy the flexibility of a full spectrum of project management, from on-demand hourly support, to 100% full service support. Professional organizers with in interest in senior moves or project management can add leverage business partnerships to add experience and pursue professional development to provide these specialized services.

5) Get Referrals. My clients rely on me to match them with professionals at the top of their game, and I want to refer my business partners the types of jobs they truly want to be doing. It’s a great system that leads to fruitful referrals.

Simply Downsized LLC offers a client-first approach that requires a robust collective of businesses of all sizes. I make it my job to know everyone who is actively serving, or is interested in serving the Downsizing and Estate Closeouts market in the Washington region. Contact me at AnnaNovak@me.com.
