When it comes time to make a move, there is a lot to consider. Beyond the questions of where and when, there can be many other important things to think about. If you are a young couple with children, questions about school districts and quality childcare will come into play. If you are single, you may be more concerned with neighborhood recreation and nightlife. But one group that has a hard time with the issues of moving is often forgotten. Seniors face tough decisions later in life about relocation, possible downsizing and the quality of life implications of a new location. Add to all of this the necessity for not only social but physical support and you uncover a very big need in the moving industry at large.
At Exodus, we are committed to supporting our community. We are currently proud to be beginning our work with a great company called Vision Silver Services. This organization is committed to helping seniors with all the details of selling their home and relocating, handling everything from coordinating garage sales to utility transfers. Exodus is honored to be a preferred mover for Vision Silver Services. The following is our recent interview with the organizations distinguished founder, Mr. Greg Gellar.
Why did you found Vision Silver Services?
When my grandmother died recently, I began thinking about all the people I had helped and visited with over the years. Often, the elderly have no help in the moving process. The process is so overwhelming that they sometimes struggle to begin to pack and get moved to facilities offering care. I decided that offering an all inclusive program could help these people improve their quality of life by removing the uncertainty of how to orchestrate a whole move.
The website says you have been buying homes since 1994. Is your background exclusive to real estate or have you been involved in other industries?
Out of college, I spent some time as operations management of Paradise Cleaners, but for nearly 15 years, I have tried to make the public understand that there can be integrity in the home buying industry; that you can not only get value but you can give value. Today, real estate is the main focus of my work.
What makes Vision Silver Services unique?
Silver Services is the only comprehensive home buying package offering help with all stages of moving available anywhere. In this way it is totally unique and fills a very important niche in the market as well as in the community.
What are the 3 questions most frequently asked of you?
- How old are you (I look much younger than my 40 years)
- How does the Silver Services process work?
- What is the catch? (It’s great when I get to explain, there is none.)
What are the top things you look for in a Moving Company?
- Longevity in the industry
- Web Presence
Why do VSS & Exodus Moving and Storage complement each other?
Both companies seem to understand that being truthful, upfront and honest is the big picture. We understand that in a time where so much distrust exists, that “the job” is to be clear and follow the golden rule at all times. Exodus is concerned, as are we, with grass roots marketing which highlights the faces behind the company. They know that slick brochures do not save the world. We both want the public to know that above all, there is always someone to help and someone to call who can answer questions now, rather than endless tiers of “voice jail”. We are both committed absolutely to people, which makes our companies a great compliment to each other.
Do you have any current events coming up that you would like to highlight?
As VSS ramps up, we have taken a very slow approach. We have been very busy thus far and we will be conducting small events which focus on a more personal atmosphere. People can be looking out for these to start in mid Fall of 2011.
