Aaron and Irma’s Rightsizing Story

March 23 2018

After 40 years in their beautiful 5000+ square foot home, Aaron and Irma realized that it no longer suited their lifestyle. While filled with the memories of raising a family and hosting many gatherings, as well as gorgeous furnishings, thanks to Irma’s instinctive and studied eye as an interior designer, Aaron said, “Two people just don’t need multiple bedrooms and living areas. When we took a good look at it, we realized we were really only using about a third of the house.”

The couple have long been involved in many philanthropic and entrepreneurial endeavors including Aaron’s participation with a local senior living community. “Having been involved with Newbridge on the Charles early in its development, I had known for a while that we’d want to move there at some point,” adds Aaron. “So, when an appropriate home became available, we knew it was time.”

Considering their sizeable home and lifetime of belongings, Aaron and Irma knew they’d need help. Sort It Out Boston was highly recommended to them by a trusted friend and they instantly knew that they would be in good hands.

“Pat was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. She put us at ease and removed all concerns surrounding a major move,” says Aaron. Going a step further, Pat recommended a realtor to sell the existing home – which sold its first day on the market.

Once the selection of furnishings to keep was made, Sort It Out Boston arranged for the best means of dispersing the rest, including an online auction service, consignment and donation They also coordinated delivery of certain items to the homes of the couple’s children.

As soon as Aaron and Irma’s remaining belongings arrived at Newbridge, Pat and her colleague, Nancy, went straight to work unpacking and organizing everything so the couple could quickly settle in to their new home and community.

“Working with Pat and Nancy was enjoyable. We didn’t have to ask for anything or lift a finger throughout the process,” continues Aaron. “They made what could have been a nightmare one of the easiest and most pleasant experiences of our lives.”

Just a few days after the move, not a single box was in sight; each item was carefully arranged in every room of the house. Best of all, neither Aaron or Irma has a single regret about this life-changing move.

“Pat and her team made this major transition so easy-before, during and after our move. She took charge of the process and left us with nothing to do but enjoy our new home.” concludes Aaron. “Pat made it such a delightful experience that I now think of her as a friend, not just a business acquaintance. Without a doubt, I would recommend Sort It Out Boston to anyone looking to make a well-organized, stress-free move.”
