Testimonials and Kudos from our Clients

Thankful for the Testimonials

“I was referred to Marian from one of the companies she often helps.  My mother, Carol, was given less than one week notice to find a senior living arrangement during the 2015 holiday season. We contacted Marian after choosing Mom’s new home at 9am on a Monday and she coordinated and executed the move by Thursday.  We were nervous of about pulling off a complex move with my mom living in Erie, PA and us located in Maryland.  The initial free consultation took less than an hour where Marian  explained her services and completed the walk through. Everything from her contracts to her explanation of the services provided was clear. Her calm and passionate approach to her clients was clear in our short interaction with her that first day. During the walk through she recommended what should be moved as we didn’t have my Mom available to help decide.  She then visited the property to ensure everything would fit. She planned, sorted, packed, and organized the move beginning at 4pm the day we met her. In addition to a number of phone calls planning the move, Marian used other electronic contact methods including email and text messages, which was our preference, to complete the other small details and keep us in constant contact throughout the process. The day of the move she coordinated all the activities including the movers, facility and kept us in the loop as the day progressed. Afterwards she staged and settled my mom in the unit and made sure everything was put away in a place that just made sense. My mom was initially uneasy during this transition but Marian kept everything calm and under control. My mom became  very happy during this stressful day because of Marian. After the move she continued to maintain contact and took care of any loose ends that arose because of the very quick turnaround of the job. I would recommend Marian and her organization to any potential clients and would be willing to endorse her in any way needed.”

“I am pleased to provide this letter of recommendation for Marian Taylor.  Ms. Taylor and her company relocated my elderly parents twice within the span of two months.  As a consequence of my Mom’s advancing illness, it was no longer possible for her and my Father to remain in their home. With considerable reluctance, they agreed to move to an assisted living facility, who had recommended Ms. Taylor’s company. She was referred as someone who could help, plan and execute the move.  This was not going to be your typical “pack everything up, put it on a truck and unload it at the new house” kind of move.  The apartment my parents were moving to was much smaller than the house they had lived in for 15 years. This was going to require my parents to downsize their possessions and valuables. Marian had scoped out the new apartment in advance to assess how much space there was for furniture, artwork, kitchen implements, clothing and storage. She and her team then took my parents through a systematic, no–‐stress process of selecting the things that they would take with them. She arranged for the movers and loaded any valuables into her van. At the apartment, the team set to work arranging furniture in a way that would look and feel familiar to my parents. They unpacked everything and put it in its place. Clothes in dressers, kitchen items in cupboards, and mementos in a way that would look familiar. Once they completed their work, I brought my parents to the apartment. We were all amazed by what we found…a ready to live in domicile. My parents settled in their chairs and felt at home.  With my parents settled, I turned to the task of disposing of the possessions that were left behind. Marian’s team culled through the clothing and packed those items that were in good condition, took them to a local charity and disposed of the rest. She referred me to a company that organized and conducted a sale of the furniture, kitchen utensils, dinnerware, artwork, tools, etc., and then handled the disposal of the remainder. Unfortunately , within two months of the move, my Mother’s deteriorating condition required we move my parents to another assisted living facility that could provide the level of care she needed.  I called Marian for help and she and her team took care of everything on a fairly short notice. I could not have done this without Marian’s assistance.  I am my parent’s only child and don’t live in the area. All the work of moving them fell to me. With Marian’s help, that move become a seamless exercise and spared all of us a great deal of worry.  I can’t say enough good things about Marian and  her services.  She is a true professional and I would recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in similar circumstances.” Sincerely, Will Ferretti
