Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) April 28, 2015
The locally owned and operated business Caring Transitions of Fredericksburg, Virginia, has been recognized by the Caring Transitions’ national headquarters as a Rookie All Star franchise.
Pam Pell and her husband Marvin opened Caring Transitions of Fredericksburg in October of 2013. The business specializes in organizing and managing senior moves, downsizing, and liquidating belongings through estate sales and online auctions. Caring Transitions of Fredericksburg serves Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Stafford, Caroline, Culpeper, Fauquier, Hanover, King George, Louisa, Orange, Westmoreland, the Northern Neck and the surrounding areas. On a national level, the Caring Transitions franchise is the largest resource specializing in this type of senior relocation services.
“I was shocked and honored to be recognized with the Rookie All Star Award. It’s an honor for the work we’ve put into growing this business to be recognized on a national level across the franchise system. The corporate team believes in us from the minute we open a franchise, so it’s nice to be able to meet their expectations. I hope this award is harbinger for what’s to come and that we can be a point of light for other new owners,” Pam said.
Caring Transitions Company President Chris Seman said, to be recognized as a Rookie All Star, the franchise had to be open for a full year and have exceeded expectations.
“Caring Transitions of Fredericksburg demonstrates an understanding of the system and how to execute it. They’ve have created a solid foundation that is leading the businesses on an accelerated growth pattern,” he said.
Prior to opening Caring Transitions of Fredericksburg, the Pells spent their careers in the printing business. When it came time for Pam to find another career, she found herself pigeonholed by her upper management level experience in a shrinking industry.
“My prospects for finding another job in the industry with my resume were slim, but sometimes you have to make your own rain, which is why we decided to open our own business. We knew that working with seniors was something we’d enjoy, but we weren’t interested in providing home health care. We lived the whole “downsizing and moving, then in-our-home caregiving” with my grandparents, so the work Caring Transitions does really resonated with us and we knew it was something we’d enjoy that also had a great opportunity for success,” Pam said.
“Now that we’ve built a strong foundation in this community, we’re looking forward to a bright future for Caring Transitions of Fredericksburg,” she added.
Pam is very active in the non-profit Partners in Aging, serving on the board, and chairman of the Art of Aging Expo. She is also a district representative to the VA Dept. of Social Services for Spotsylvania County.
“It is so important to give back to the community that means so much to us,” Pam said.
