Are you relocating to Sarasota area or downsizing? Are you doing both?
Over the years I have been involved in assisting so many of my clients during this transitional period. Every situation is special and unique, but there are always common questions, concerns and dilemmas.
I have lived in the Sarasota area for over 40 years – yes I did come here as a baby!! (not)
My connections with people, my knowledge of the area can be invaluable to someone new to the area. Sometimes just having someone you can call on to ask a simple question takes a lot of the stress out of relocating.
One of the common scenarios that I can assist with is when a client has been a part time resident, living here for sometime, then retires and decides to live here full time and sell their primary home in the north – which is fully furnished – and buy a new home here. That situation can be overwhelming.
After buying a new home, there is the decision as to what needs to be done to that home from a renovation standpoint. Maybe it is a new home and just needs some finishing touches such as wallpaper and window treatments. If it is an older home, more updating might be needed: new kitchen, baths, flooring, etc. I offer full renovation services working with licensed sub-contractors from every field. We can plan your renovation and manage it to completion, even if you are not here. We are your eyes and ears in your absence.
Once the new home is decided, next to address is what furniture to keep, what furniture to move down, what furniture needs to be bought?
I specialize in this area. I can work from pictures of your existing pieces that may still be up north, I can visit your home here to see your existing furniture and then create a design plan to incorporate key pieces from both into your new home.
If you are looking for someone to make this time in your life easier and less complicated, please contact me and let’s talk. One of my beliefs is that there must be a connection and a feeling of trust between a designer and a client. If you have those two qualities, you will have a successful experience.
