Every Simply Downsized project includes a Home Visit and Custom Plan. You’ll meet with a licensed downsizing specialist for up to two hours to discuss your goals in detail.

After the meeting, you’ll receive a recommended plan of action including a general task list, target dates, and a list of hand-picked local professionals who are qualified and available to provide any service you may need to accomplish your goals. Moving and Downsizing services may include:

  • Space Planning and Detailed Floorplans
  • Professional Organizing for paper and media
  • Packing, Moving and Unpacking
  • Multi-stage Transport and Storage
  • Specialty Services as Needed

Our exclusive Walk Away service provides an efficient, hands-free home clear out solution that includes:

  • facilitating  the sale of custom furnishings to your home buyer.
  • sending all sellable items to the most appropriate auction.
  • donating anything that can be donated.
  • properly recycling and disposing of anything left over.
  • completing a deep-cleaning to deliver the property on time, according to your needs.

If you choose to engage Simply Downsized to personally manage your Custom Plan, you’ll enjoy ongoing support and guidance throughout your home transition.  We handle all of the details and free you up to focus on the decisions and activities that matter the most.

Will you need to hire a real estate pro to sell your home or help you find a new one? The choice of Realtor® is an important aspect of your downsizing experience, and our recommended pros can help you have a seamless experience and save money, too.

When you choose to work with a Realtor® recommended by Anna Novak, a portion of the real estate commission will be applied to offset your downsizing expenses.  And, our collaboration, advocacy and support during the home sale process offers even more convenience and peace of mind that nothing will fall through the cracks.

Simply Downsized was selected as the Best Downsizing Service by readers of Arlington Magazine.  We are fully qualified, insured, and licensed to make professional referrals, handle your belongings, and provide coordination and hands-on help.  You can read detailed reviews written by recent clients here.
