Finding a Moving Helper
Written by Rhonda Jarvis
Moving, one of life’s more stressful events!
Even moves across town can involve blood, sweat and tears but moves away from the familiar are even more stressful. One’s daily habits are altered, leaving a person floundering while facing a daily restructuring of normal life.
Our fine military families face this moving conundrum on a regular basis. Other families do as well when jobs take them from place to place.
In our 28 years of marriage and a dozen moves, seven of which were out of the familiar area, we are well acquainted with the process. And in the process of these relocations, one of the most memorable and helpful people was our real estate agent. Some better than others, but all went above and beyond helping us find a house to call home as well as help navigate a new community.
My Moving Tips
The front line in most relocation sagas are those having to do with employment. Hopefully these initial contacts are positive ones that aid in the transition. The second important contact should be a real estate agent.
When one is realistic and honest with these professionals they are eager to help you find a community that suits your life style and your needs. They have a knowledge that goes beyond any HGTV show and can use this knowledge to help you make the best decision for you and your family.
Schools, churches, groceries, shopping, clubs, real estate agents have a knowledge base that is priceless to a newcomer. So the best first decision a person can make after deciding to move to Abilene is to find an agent they can truly connect with and help them with the process.
I’ve been a newcomer in Abilene and was treated very well. I also was an agent in Abilene for five years. I know what it is like welcome a newcomer and help them find their way around town. I loved that part about the job! I can say with certainty that finding an agent at Stovall Realtors is a great place to start for any newcomer.
The great reputation of Stovall Realtors has opened the door to be a part of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World which opens the door for Stovall agents to refer those moving away from Abilene to find an agent anywhere in the world with the same kind of reputation. Stovall Realtors holds this honor exclusively in Abilene.

So if you are looking into the possibility of moving to Abilene, please let your decision include choosing an agent from the great ones at Stovall Realtors to help you with the relocation process.
And if you are moving from Abilene, let our association with LREC help you find an agent on the other end while we make listing and selling your home as stress free as possible.
