I can help.  I’m a Certified Military Relocation Specialist!  Moving from a small town or base to a different base and a larger city can be an intimidating proposition. Here are a few tips to help make your move as painless as possible.

Research before you move. It’s important to understand the culture you’re joining. Do research online and find out about school systems, neighborhoods, parking, weather, public transportation, and laws that are native to that area. If you can, visit a city before moving and connect with someone who’s lived there before or living there now.

Have a plan. There are a lot of steps to go through before you start packing the moving truck. Find housing before you leave, or at least know where you’ll stay while you look for a home. Never sign a lease on an apartment that you haven’t seen. If you can’t get there, find a friend or family member to check for you. Ask how far away Hunter or Fort Stewart is from the property address you are interest in.  Google is our friend!

Home buying. There are many homes on the market in the coastal Savannah area to tour and purchase. Not connected with a good local VA lender?  I can help! Connect me for a referral. Welcome to the Savannah area!  May all your memories of coastal Georgia be memorable!  el
