The Settler, LLC www.thesettlersusa.com, a unique Fairfield County, CT based senior move management firm, proudly announces their recent accreditation by The National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) - the national industry association for professional move managers. “This recognition makes us one of a very few accredited move management organizations in the area,” says Pinny Randall, company owner and founder.
“This accreditation decision represents the highest level of professional achievement that can be awarded to a Senior Move Management company,” says Mary Kay Buysse, NASMM’s Executive Director. “An organization receiving a three-year NASMM A+ Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and demonstrated to a team of reviewers its’ commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.”
Moving at any age is difficult and stressful. Recognizing and effectively managing the stress of relocating older adults is the hallmark of a senior move management firm like The Settler. “Our accreditation and attendance at NASMM’s annual conferences means we are educated on different and even difficult situations like hoarding, handling people with Alzheimer’s, how to approach older clients and any client who may be under stress in their move,” says Caroline Menchero, office and job manager at the firm.
With clients throughout Fairfield and Westchester counties, The Settler has been in the business of relocating people for over 13 years. What sets the company apart from the average moving firm is the depth and breadth of their services. Whether it’s a move in or move out, The Settler handles complex situations, both within the U.S. and internationally, involving local and long-distance moves for adults moving to a smaller space, people retiring to another location, vacation and second homes set-up, corporate relocations and much more.
“Our universe revolves around individuals and families moving from a house to an apartment, or going from a big house to a smaller house in the case of families whose kids are gone,” says Randall. “We call it “right sizing” and we help our clients with everything – from the planning of the move to managing the inventory, orchestrating the move, sorting possessions, giving away items, packing, unpacking and finishing touches in settling in again.”
To successfully accomplish this task The Settler collaborates with a huge pool of third party providers, everyone from stamp collectors, record album collectors, electricians, rug cleaners, and furniture restorers to independent dealers and auctions houses. In December 2015 one of The Settler’s Greenwich, CT clients made headline news with the unearthing of a valuable piece of sheet music by none other than Ludwig von Beethoven himself, which went to auction.
Clients rave about the firm. “If Pinny Randall had not come into my life, the move from New Orleans to Dallas would never have happened,” says one happy client. “It was as though an angel had appeared to offer psychiatric help and expertise in every way (physical, organizational, secretarial and family planning).”
Another notes: “We recently completed a most successful move from our home of 40 years in Tarrytown, New York to various locations throughout the country including South Carolina, Florida and Connecticut. All in all, 40 years of living was sent to ten different locations. The Settler accomplished this move in the most professional and pain free way possible. Pinny, Isabelle and their outstanding colleagues were amazing.”
