Transitional Assistance & Design Anticipates Increase in Relocating Professionals

Transitional Assistance & Design is one of the nations largest and most respected companies that helps busy professionals and families with smooth moves to their new residences.

While experts and real estate historians debate the impact of the upcoming presidential election on home sales and rental properties in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area, one local company is starting to stand out as the best company to turn to for assisting with smooth transitions for professionals moving into town, out of town, or to the other side of town. Transitional Assistance & Design is one of the nations largest and most respected companies that helps busy professionals and families with smooth moves to their new residences.

When the Washington area experiences an estimated 5.5% increase in home sales as a result of this year’s presidential election, Transitional Assistance and Design anticipates an influx of professionals seeking their services.

“Consistently in each of the last four presidential election years, we’ve experienced an increase in demand for our services,” says Susie Danick, founder and co-owner of Transitional Assistance & Design. “Our historical data indicates that individuals with careers related to the political landscape make decisions about adjustments to their current living situation most often within eight months of the election.”

During a presidential election year, approximately 24,000 people working on Capitol Hill and 3,000 in presidentially-appointed positions face an employment change. According to the Washington Post, if the Mitt Romney moves into the Oval Office, about 4,000 out-of-towners getting new jobs will be moving to the area, and about half of those will buy homes in their first year. And that’s not including the thousands of individuals and families relocating to or within the region because they’re starting new jobs with other elected political staff changes, associations, law firms, medical and healthcare facilities, technology firms, and the myriad of other businesses in the growing Washington, DC region.

Transitional Assistance and Design, a long serving professional Move Management company in the greater DC area, knows regardless of how many new residents move to the area or relocate within the metro DC region, each situation deserves personalized moving services by professional Move Managers.

Many of these homebuyers and residential relocators are busy professionals who value having trusted, reliable, and knowledgeable professionals assisting with their moves. Move Managers perform services beyond the traditional moving companies that only pack, ship, and unload moving boxes. Sometimes referred to as “the wedding planners of the moving industry”, Transitional Assistance and Design provides customized move-related services that include:

  • Developing and executing an end-to-end move management plan addressing key concerns of the family.
  • Documenting the current home décor to guide the design and placement of furnishings and decorating in the new home.
  • Creating a scaled furnished floor plan; enabling the family to see how their new home will accommodate existing and purchased items.
  • Assisting with estate sales, auctions, and helping clients decide which items should be donated or discarded.
  • Organizing, adding sparkle, and putting away everything in the new home – from arranging the dishes and utensils in the kitchen, to hanging pictures and paintings, and arranging garments.

“We look forward to assisting the professionals and families who don’t have time to handle all of the various details of moving that we manage for them,” says Danick. “Many of our clients tell us they appreciate our expertise and how we help make their transition less stressful so they can stay focused on their careers, families, social life, and other priorities.”

Danick, a native Washingtonian, has built and trained a professional and dedicated team to successfully manage over 400 moves annually. She is a past president of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) and writes “Simplifying Solutions with Susie”, a regular newspaper column with helpful tips on “rightsizing” and move-related issues.

Besides assisting busy professionals with relocations and move-related services, Transitional Assistance and Design is the area’s leading company specializing in senior move management services. The company recently joined with Wish of a Lifetime, the nation’s most recognized charitable organization that grants lifelong wishes to senior citizens and spreads inspirational stories of hope, and will soon be announcing a special wish for a deserving senior in the greater DC area.
