Gulf Coast Leigh: Live the Lost Key Lifestyle

Gulf Coast Leigh: Live the Lost Key Lifestyle

Relocating? Count on a professional!

Tomorrow marks a big day for one of my clients. She will be driving in from her former home in Texas to start her new life as a resident of Orange Beach, Alabama.   Kim is very excited, as she should be.  When we first began talking, she really didn’t think that she could pull off a move to the beach town of her dreams.

Kim found me via her Dallas-area Realtor, who advised her on selling her townhome there. Her agent, Denise, did her research and discovered that my team and I not only worked selling beach and vacation homes, but also specialized in residential relocation.

So what kind of services does a relocation expert provide?

I started with a phone interview with Kim.
Kim has always dreamed of living at the beach.   She works from home, so local employment was not a challenge for her.
Kim was leaving a townhouse.  She wanted more privacy in her new home, so we focused on single family homes.  Her price point did not initially allow for her to purchase on the beach, so we started our search in surrounding communities.  As a single woman, she wasn’t interested in a “fixer upper.”
New to the Gulf Coast, she had to learn about homeowner issues unique to our coast:  Insurance isn’t cheap, and our salt air takes a toll on heating and cooling systems.

Even after offers  on 2 homes that didn’t come to fruition, Kim was determined to move to the coast.

She shipped her furniture to a climate controlled storage facility, and I met the movers there to be sure her belongings arrived securely.  On her next trip,  we found the perfect spot for her: A new home (from a national builder) in a prime location in Orange Beach, just minutes from the beach!

Our timing was perfect, and we were able to get Kim the new home (complete with builder’s warranty AND Gold Certification, which greatly reduced her insurance costs) at a price she was comfortable with. Kim now enjoys daily beach walks, and lots of sand, sea, and sunshine.

Contact us- we can help you relocate to Paradise, too.
