For many, downsizing is a liberating decision. It’s not just about moving to a smaller space but finding a home that better fits your current lifestyle and needs. Downsizing can reduce maintenance efforts, cut down costs, and even open up new possibilities for community living. Kristie’s expertise ensures that seniors don’t just find a smaller space but the right space where they can thrive.

Aging in place refers to staying in the comfort of your home as you grow older, rather than moving to senior living facilities. This option requires thoughtful planning and often some modifications to your current home. Think wider doorways, safety bars in the bathroom, and perhaps a bedroom on the main floor. Kristie Bergey’s network includes professionals who can make these adjustments, ensuring your home is safe and comfortable for years to come.
