A few hopeful thoughts
about the dreaded “R-Word”


In the entire history of the human race there are relatively few accounts of people actually enjoying relocation. In most such cases it was to leave a totally oppressive life situation for a new and better one. For the rest of the people, it has been primarily an experience of stress and difficulty, somewhat akin to being a plant which is pulled out of the soil, roots and all, transported to a new locale and then shoved into the ground. Plants don't enjoy it much, and neither do people.  


Fortunately, much has been learned about how to relocate with the minimum of stress and difficulty.
We have worked with many clients who have relocated to Windsor from all parts of the world! We have collected some of the most helpful “relocation wisdom” and put it in one short, simple, very practical FREE report (Report R1) entitled: 


Here are some of the helpful items covered: 


• Understanding the WORRIES and ANXIETIES that arise; knowing how to deal with them
• Getting the TIMING right so that things flow smoothly, one after another
• Involving your CHILDREN in new home selection, the move itself, everything!
• Picking a property with access to the right SCHOOLS
• Paying attention to DETAILS, such as throwing things out, organizing activities, informing everyone of your move, phones and Internet connections and so on.
• Deciding about SHIPPING: leaving things
• Dealing with MOVERS: simple if you get the right people, a horror story if not!
