About - Homestead Move and Estate Services  - Serving the South Puget Sound Area of Western Washington


Homestead Move and Estate Services as a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers specializes in helping older adults and their families with the daunting process of downsizing and moving to a new residence. We are experienced professionals, bound by a pledge of integrity, committed to safety and ethics and dedicated to continuing professional development. Homestead  Move and Estate Services will move you expertly, compassionately and affordably.



Senior Move Management is the profession that assists older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation and/or "aging in place." Senior Move Managers have backgrounds in gerontology, social work, health care, nursing and psychology, others come to this industry from the corporate world of project management, technology, accounting or marketing.
Senior Move Managers require a profound commitment to connecting with older adults and a desire to perform meaningful work. Our overall goal is to fulfill the need for seamless, successful transition services for older adults and their families.


• The numbers tell the story. The U.S. population aged 65 and over will jump nearly 80 percent when the Baby Boom generation retires (from 2010 to 2030). By 2030, the elderly will account for one-fifth of the total U.S. population. The fastest growing segment of the U. S. population are Americans age 85 and above.
• Today, many families are geographically dispersed and adult children are often not able to help with the moving process due to distance, career and family obligations.
• Many seniors have no surviving children, or increasingly, their children are older adults themselves. If illness or death precipitates the move, the family is likely already drained both emotionally and physically. They need help. Senior Move Managers emerge to fill these gaps and to facilitate the transition for everyone involved.
• Older adults making a transition have usually not moved in 30, 40 or 50 years and need to downsize considerably. The organizational and physical tasks associated with planning and implementing such a complex move can be overwhelming for the entire family. Seek the help of a Senior Move Manager.


• Senior Move Managers provide a multi-faceted approach to the move process: from space planning in the beginning to post-move support and advocacy.
• Senior Move Managers minimize the chaos and stress associated with moving by addressing all aspects of the move process. They are responsible to for creating and executing a seamless action plan, customized to the client's wishes.
• Actually, some but not all Senior Move Managers are also movers. Those providers that are not movers will work closely with a reputable local moving company to complete that aspect of the job.
• With the gentle and expert guidance of an experienced Senior Move Manager, older adults and families make the key decisions without the emotional and physical distress that can follow. As a result, they avoid the costly mistakes and remorse that often accompany such major lifestyle transitions.
• Senior Move Managers do so much more than simply sort, settle and move boxes; with loads of energy, enthusiasm and experience, Senior Move Managers take the worry (and work!) out of the move process. The client's job is to simply enjoy his or her new living arrangement.


• The National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) is the leading membership organization for Senior Move Managers in the United States, Canada and abroad.
• NASMM is recognized for its innovative programs and expertise related to Senior Move Management, transition and relocation issues affecting older adults.
• Consumers and referral sources should be confident that NASMM members represent the most qualified and capable Senior Move Managers in this growing profession.
• All members of the National Association of Senior Move Management must meet strict vetting requirements before approval.
• NASMM members are reviewed for insurance and experience requirements prior to acceptance.
• NASMM has developed a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for all members.
• Ongoing educational programs reflect the NASMM commitment to professionalism and to working with older adults.


• The initial in-home, no-obligation consultation is free – we want to make sure that each and every client is comfortable with us and the services we provide.
• It's virtually impossible to calculate what a specific move might cost, as the fees can vary considerably by the specific needs and the services requested.
• NASMM members will always outline the cost of a job through a detailed written estimate or contract and answer any questions you may have before you are required to submit payment.
