FAQ – Military Relocation
I am extremely familiar with your relocation package and I promise to make your move easier. There can be so many complications that come with moving and starting life over fresh, whether it is a new town or just a new house. There are so many things you need to remember, like changing your address, letting your banks & insurance companies know that you are moving, changing schools, etc. But before you make all of those arrangements, you need to know where you are being posted, when you have to move and how to make the move. I understand the complexities of your situation and I can assist along the way.
For over 10 years, I have successfully moved many members of the R.C.M.P and the Canadian Armed Forces. I’m a longstanding preferred supplier on the “The Brookfield IRP Preferred Vendor List” and am currently active on the suppliers list. And, having served in the Canadian Armed Forces, I understand the unique needs of military members and I will go to great lengths to ensure your transition is efficient and smooth.

Yes, one week should be fine. It usually takes about a day to negotiate a deal. The inspection could be a couple of days to set up. Then you should add a day or so just in case something unexpected happens. If you do some research ahead of time, a couple of good days should be enough.
Rest assured I will do my best to completely clear my schedule from when you arrive until it is the time for you to leave; that way, I can give you my utmost attention. My goal is to find you the best home possible during the time that you are here.
Yes, I highly recommend doing a home inspection. If you purchase a new home or a home that is under 5 years of age that is covered by a New Home Warranty, unfortunately your plan will not cover the inspection.

Definitely. I can email you listings with full details. I can even send you additional information above and beyond what is available to you on the Internet because, after all, I’m right here on location.
Please do not put your house on the market right away. That can actually create some difficulties for yourself if you list your home before your postage message comes in. In this case, patience is definitely a virtue. Once your postage message arrives, we can get on it right away!
