It’s been said that “it’s not what you know, but who you know.” People in business know very well the importance of contacts – and who is in their “Contacts.”
So why does every Realtor need a Professional Organizer in his arsenal? Think about it: What are his clients doing? While finding a new home, closing escrow, and taking the keys, they are making preparations. That means making a myriad of arrangements: getting important paperwork in order; hiring movers; purchasing moving supplies; filling out address changes; decluttering drawers, closets, rooms, offices, and garages; packing a ton of boxes. Then they are moving into their new home, unpacking, and organizing. It’s a daunting task for anyone!
There are numerous reasons people move. For instance: Couples move into their first home; new parents move into homes in which they will raise their children; people upgrade; empty nesters downsize; financial considerations, loss of a spouse, and retirement often demand changes to living situations; and elderly folks move in with their children or into retirement facilities. People move from an apartment into a condo or house; from one home to another; downsize from a house to a condo; and so forth. There are always people buying and selling property, and they all have to move.
Part of your job as their Realtor is ensuring they make their moves in a timely fashion as there is someone else waiting to move in or out of the property as the case may be.
Think about clients who have lived in their homes for, say, 20+ years. Imagine how much “stuff” they have acquired. They must do something with ALL of it! Many are totally overwhelmed and have no idea where to start. Let’s face it: Moving can be a very emotionally draining experience. Having help from someone who is sensitive to your feelings is a definite plus.
A Professional Organizer can help your clients with details from A-Z. Some people don’t know how or where to start. Others need another pair of hands to help with all that needs to be done – from making calls to decluttering to picking up packing supplies to helping pack to unpacking and organizing on the other end – and sometimes just to hold their hand and provide a shoulder to lean on. Whew!
Here’s where you can be a hero: Have a couple of Professional Organizers in your Contacts to recommend to such clients. Most are reasonably priced, very talented, and can help your clients “enjoy” an organized, less stressful move. And your client will thank you in the end.
