Our services and process includes the following!

At RISE Homes, we recognize that transitioning to a new home in your later years is more than just a move; it's a significant life event filled with mixed emotions and crucial decisions. Our process begins with a personalized consultation, a cornerstone of our tailored approach. During this initial meeting, we delve deep to understand your unique needs, aspirations, and what holds the greatest value for you and your loved ones.
In this consultation, we lay out a comprehensive roadmap for your transition. This includes establishing specific timelines for each phase of the move, ensuring every step aligns with your comfort and readiness. We understand the importance of timing in selling your current home and settling into your new one, so we work diligently to coordinate these processes smoothly.
A key aspect of preparing for the sale of your home is assessing its current state and identifying any improvements that could enhance its market value. Our team provides expert advice on which renovations or touch-ups can yield the best return, balancing cost-effectiveness with appeal to potential buyers. Whether it's minor repairs, cosmetic upgrades, or more significant renovations, we guide you through what’s necessary to make your home stand out in the market.
Recognizing the complexity of such transitions, we've built a robust network of compassionate and skilled professionals. Our team includes Estate Planning Attorneys, who ensure your legal affairs are in order; Professional Fiduciaries, who help manage your assets with integrity; Financial Advisors, offering expert guidance on preserving your financial health; In-Home Care Specialists, ensuring your comfort and well-being; and Professional Organizers, who assist in downsizing and preparing your current home for sale.
Moreover, our Senior Moving Specialists streamline the physical aspect of moving, making it as seamless as possible. Our Senior Living Placement Specialists work closely with you to find the perfect new community, whether it's a vibrant 55+ neighborhood, a supportive Assisted Living Facility, or a specialized Memory Care Center. We also have connections with Retirement Community and Assisted Living Facility Managers, ensuring a smooth transition into your new home.
At every step, our goal is to provide a holistic support system, alleviating the stress and uncertainty that can come with such a significant life change. We're here to ensure that every aspect of your move is handled with care, respect, and professionalism, allowing you to look forward to this new chapter with peace and confidence.
At RISE Homes, we understand that a lifetime's accumulation of belongings represents not just objects, but memories, milestones, and personal journeys. As you prepare to transition to a new home we are here to guide you through the process of decluttering and rehoming your possessions with care and respect.
Our comprehensive downsizing services include:
Coordinating with Loved Ones: We facilitate the sharing of your cherished items with family and friends, arranging for the pick-up or mailing of these sentimental pieces to those who hold them dear.
Charitable Giving: We help you give back to the community by donating suitable items to local charities, hospital clinics, and animal shelters, ensuring your belongings continue to make a positive impact.
Auction and Estate Sales: Our team expertly manages the sale of valuables through auctions or estate sales, maximizing the return on items that are no longer needed.
Consignment Solutions: We collaborate with trusted consignment stores to find new homes for your gently used items, offering a sustainable way to declutter.
Recycling and E-Waste: Responsibly disposing of unwanted items, we arrange for recycling services, including E-waste, to minimize environmental impact.
Hauling Services: For items that need to be removed, we schedule efficient hauling services, ensuring a hassle-free clearing out of your current home.
At RISE Homes, we approach each transition with the sensitivity and dedication it deserves. We're not just assisting with a move; we're helping you embrace a new chapter in life with ease and confidence. Our goal is to ensure that you feel comfortable and at home in your new surroundings, surrounded by the items that matter most. Like family, we stand by your side, supporting you through the tough decisions and making the process of selling your family home as smooth and caring as possible.
Relocating to a new home is an endeavor that demands considerable energy, attention, and patience, resources that are often scarce in our busy lives. At RISE Homes, we shoulder this burden for you, ensuring that your moving experience is as smooth and stress-free as possible. Our comprehensive moving services include:

  • Supplying all necessary moving materials, such as boxes, packing tape, and more.
  • Careful and efficient packing of your possessions.
  • Organizing and labeling your items for ease of unpacking.
  • Engaging trustworthy moving companies to handle your belongings with care.
  • Synchronizing the move-in schedule with your new living facility.
  • Managing the disconnection of utilities from your previous home.
  • Guiding you through the process of downsizing, detailed further below.
The concept of downsizing involves thoughtfully reducing your possessions to better fit and enjoy your new living space. It's not about trying to fit the contents of a three or four-bedroom home into a one or two-bedroom apartment. Especially when moving to a smaller community residence, it's crucial to discern which items are essential for your new life. Our team of skilled professionals is here to offer advice and support, helping you decide which items to keep for your new home and which to pass on, ensuring your transition is as comfortable and rewarding as possible.
Transitioning to a new home is a significant step. At RISE Homes, we extend our expertise beyond just downsizing and relocation services. Our team is dedicated to preparing your property for sale with the utmost care and professionalism, ensuring it appeals to potential buyers and secures the best possible price.
Our comprehensive listing preparation services include:
Full-Service Property Enhancement: Leveraging our extensive experience in selling homes that may require extra attention, we coordinate with a trusted network of contractors, painters, plumbers, electricians, and handymen. These professionals are not only skilled in their crafts but also offer their services at reasonable prices, ensuring quality work without overstretching your budget.
Efficient and Timely Work: Understanding the importance of quick yet effective upgrades, our team ensures all improvements are completed efficiently and in a timely manner, minimizing any inconvenience to you.
Hassle-Free Project Management: We take on the responsibility of managing the entire project from start to finish. You won't have to worry about the day-to-day details, as we handle all aspects of the property's preparation.
Regular Updates and Transparency: Throughout the process, we keep you informed with regular progress reports, complete with pictures, so you can see the transformation of your property first-hand, even if you are not able to be there physically.
Deferred Payment Plan: Understanding the financial constraints that come with moving and selling a home, our contractors offer a Deferred Payment option, allowing for the payment of services at the Close of Escrow. This means that you don't have to pay upfront, easing financial pressures and allowing for the costs of upgrades and repairs to be settled once the property is sold.
At RISE Homes, we are committed to making the transition as seamless and stress-free as possible, not only for the seniors we serve but also for their families. With our expert handling of the listing preparation, you can look forward to a successful sale and a smooth move to your new home.
