The last time you moved, you may have said, “I am NEVER doing this again!” If so, you are not alone. According to mental health experts, moving is one of life’s most stressful events. And when you factor in the reason for your move—divorce, job loss, foreclosure, death of a loved one, or another situation—you can see how the stress just piles on.

Downsizing is another reason why many people, whether baby boomers who have just sent the last child off to college, or seniors moving to a smaller home, apartment or care facility, look to companies that can help alleviate the economic burden of ownership.

One of those companies is The Sierra Group, LLC, which offers the fastest, most convenient way to sell one’s house, “as is,” for a fair price, and on the date of the seller’s choosing.

Ben Souchek, a principle of The Sierra Group, who possesses over 20 years of experience in the real estate industry, has created a service called Home Downsizing Solutions which not only helps with the “traditional” aspects of preparing for such a move, but also provides the seller with additional benefits like taking care of any needed repairs, buying their house right away by utilizing private funds to close escrow when it is convenient for the seller, and no commissions or closing costs.

“These are things that you can’t put a price on,” Souchek said. “There is a lot to be said about the ‘costs’ of a great deal of stress, anxiety, and physical exhaustion. Our goal is to relieve the seller of these burdens, allowing them to more fully focus on their future dreams and goals.”

The Sierra Group can also give the seller up to 90 days, or sometimes more, to make their downsizing transition, including allowing them to leave behind anything they can’t or do not want to take with them.

“We do everything we can to set ourselves apart in the market, and the testimonials we receive speak to that,” Souchek said.

Clients Gordon & Mrs. H sent this heartfelt testimonial to The Sierra Group: “As Gordon and I embark on a new phase in our lives we have Ben & Sierra Group to thank for this blessing. We have sold three homes and have never been treated with such an informative & caring way as Ben exudes. He saved us so much grief (going through regular real estate procedures). Ben’s way & the highway was the best way.”

“It gives us great satisfaction to help people find just the right information, resources and whatever else they may need,” Souchek said. “In any kind of real estate transaction, there are a lot of details involved. We are uniquely qualified to help because of our expertise in a variety of areas that are of great benefit to our clients.”

Souchek and his team also work with a strong network of real estate agents who specialize in, and/or have their ears to the grindstone around new home communities, apartments, condos, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and other residential options.

Souchek is also the author of The Secrets to Downsizing. In it, he provides valuable information for anyone thinking of downsizing, whether or not they have done it before.

“In a world where services and products are becoming more and more one-size-fits-all, it’s increasingly important to be unique,” said Souchek. “As a licensed realtor, and working with other realtors in different markets, what I’ve found is that real estate is certainly not a one-size-fits-all operation. That is why we offer a wide range of personal, customizable services and options that can be tailored to fit a buyer or seller’s unique situation, needs and desires.”

The combination of the Home Downsizing Solutions entity, as well as the information provided in The Secrets to Downsizing, has essentially created a concierge downsizing atmosphere in which The Sierra Group agents can assist a client in finding the space that’s right for them.

“It has been very exciting to see people making their downsizing transition with more ease and peace of mind as a result,” said Souchek.
