Generational Housing Consultants took care of all our needs and simplified the move to Brookdale – it was painless.

Mr. Sylvester

At age 80, after working for 60 years, I decided to retire. My sister, who is 18 years younger, had asked me to live with her. We discussed this with the family so I listed my house with Cindy Monk. Cindy is known for her interest in helping seniors sell their homes and relocating. She listed my home, had her staff come in and stage my house for showing. She also helped me with my estate sale. The house sold in 3 weeks and I moved in with my sister. As you grow older it is difficult to decide to give up your home and your way of life, but Cindy and her staff made it so much more pleasant for me.
