Posted By: Rachel Kavanagh

February 1, 2024

As life evolves, so do our housing needs. For seniors and their families, the prospect of moving can be both exciting and challenging. At RE/MAX Benczik Kavanagh Real Estate Team we understand the unique needs of seniors and their families during this transition. We have partnered with organizations that help seniors move to create a customized approach, ensuring that everyone receives the level of support they require, whether it’s minimal assistance or a full project-managed service.

Needs Assessment: Tailoring Our Senior’s Moving Services to You
Recognizing that every senior and their family is unique, we conduct a personalized needs assessment. This helps us understand the level of support required, allowing us to tailor our services to meet your specific needs and preferences.

Decluttering, Packing, and Home Preparation
Partnering with a professional team of downsizers, we assist in the decluttering and packing process. Working closely with your guidance, we ensure that your home is neutral, decluttered, and ready for staging, creating a welcoming atmosphere for potential buyers.

Storage Solutions: Space for Treasured Items
If your current home lacks space for items not making the move, worry not. We collaborate with various storage facility companies, offering a range of storage options. Our dedicated moving contractors can seamlessly transport your items to storage, ensuring their safety until you decide what to do with them.

Maximizing Value: Auctioning Your Treasures
Downsizing often means parting with cherished and valuable items. Our experienced auctioneers assess these items and organize auctions to maximize returns for you. This ensures that your treasures find new homes while providing you with the most financial benefit.

Donating of Items: Giving Back To The Community
Our team will coordinate the donation process, handling everything from sorting and organizing to transportation. Whether it’s furniture, clothing, household goods, or other items, we strive to make the donation process effortless for you.

Creating Your New Home: Personalizing Your Space
Whether you’re transitioning to a seniors’ residence or another real estate property, we recognize that it’s not just a house; it’s your home. Our experienced team helps you identify your preferences and needs for your new space. From setting up your living area to maximizing comfort, joy, and love, we strive to make your new home truly yours.

Moving can be a complex process, especially for seniors and their families. At RE/MAX Benczik Kavanagh Real Estate Team, we are committed to making this transition as smooth as possible.

Our tailored approach, professional partnerships, and experienced team ensure that you and your loved ones feel supported every step of the way. Let us help you move and embark on this new chapter with confidence and ease.

Read what some of our happy senior clients had to say:


We were downsizing a senior who had lived in their home for 50 years and was quite an undertaking. Rachel did an amazing job and was very kind and considerate through the whole process, we would highly recommend her!

It has been a delight to deal with Leslie Benczik and his entire team. They smoothly guided me through the process of selling my home – from the listing agreement to offers for purchase – everything was clearly explained and with Leslie’s experience his advice was much appreciate. From MLS listing to multiple offers 4 days elapsed. I got full asking price, the closing date I wanted and an unconditional offer. But above and beyond the regular realtor services, Leslie went a step beyond. He arranged an electrician for a small repair. He even attended a meeting with the buyer to negotiate the sale of Contents. This was above and beyond the service I expected. All meetings, calls, etc. were on time, everyone was so courteous and more than willing to oblige. I could not have found a better Realtor anywhere. Highly recommended.

Amazing experience, with excellent results! Leslie Benczik and his team did a fantastic job with helping my brother and I sell our parents home. What initially seemed like an overwhelming task was quick, efficient and professional. Leslie’s success in the area, years of experience, local knowledge and attention to detail made him the right choice for us. Where The Benczik team took things to the next level was with staging and showcasing the home online with amazing photography, drone footage and a virtual tour. In the end we received a solid offer after a couple of days on the market! I couldn’t be happier, and I would confidently recommend Leslie to anyone that needs to sell a home. – Kaireen
