Moving You Where Life Leads you

Legacy Real Estate Services

"After working with so many families over the past several years who were navigating the maze of senior living options, I can tell you just how much hard work it takes to be a caregiver."

Over the past twenty years, I've had the profound privilege of guiding countless families through downsizing, aging in place, exploring senior living options, and the sensitive journey of managing a loved one’s estate. This experience has deepened my compassion and understanding for these unique challenges. 

My experience helped me when I had to sell my parents home in 2020 after losing my step-dad and searching for Memory Care for my own mother. This experience has deepened my compassion and understanding for these unique challenges. Witnessing the emotional and logistical hurdles firsthand, my approach is about weaving compassion and understanding into every step, ensuring life’s significant transitions are met with care and dignity. With a network of trusted resources, I am here to ease this process, support families in making informed decisions, and manage transitions with respect. 

Together, we'll honor your loved one's legacy and start a new chapter with grace.

Downsizing with Ease

Many seniors opt to downsize to simplify their lifestyle, reduce maintenance responsibilities, and possibly to free up equity for retirement living. Downsizing doesn't just mean moving to a smaller space; it's about finding the right home that supports your current and future needs, ensuring accessibility, comfort, and convenience. Our expertise lies in understanding these unique requirements and matching you with properties that fit your vision of a carefree, yet fully engaged retirement life.
