Over the years of being a Real Estate Broker many
of my buyers have made suggestions that have helped their children handle a
move. From personal experience, I’ve also added a few of my own.
Before you leave your old neighborhood, assure your
children that you will not forget their friends. Children can send a card or
text their new address and phone numbers. Making a scrapbook that includes
their old neighborhood and home can be fun; include a few selfies with their friends.
If you have the opportunity, show the children their new
home and their new room prior to moving.
When you start packing up your old home, it may be
a good idea to give your children their own boxes to pack special things. Letting
them decorate the boxes can be fun also.
Once you are settled in your new home, take your children around
to visit their new school, playground, church, etc. Encourage them to take part in groups, sports,
and activities like the ones they used to participate in.
Remember, even if you only lived in a home for a few years,
to a young child it might be their entire lifetime.
Please let me know if you have any additional suggestions
that you would add to the above. I would
really like to hear from y’all.

"My husband and I first met Michael Johnson, after finding a house we wanted to see in the Raleigh area. We didn't know what to expect or who we were meeting, but I'm glad it was Michael; he was so gentle and patient with me, and I had him going all around the triangle area, I told him what I was looking for and he did his best to take us to the homes that came close to what I wanted, and finally we found the right one. Only about a week later. Thanks Michael, for all the you did and for being there for us, even when you knew we were working with limited funds. Yes! I would recommend him to my family and friends!"
