Erickson Retirement Communities Establishes Realty & Moving Services Company
to Help People Sell Their Houses and Attain the Retirement Lifestyle That They Want
CATONSVILLE, MD (JANUARY 16, 2008) — Erickson Retirement Communities today established the framework for operating its own national realty and moving service company to help retirees sell their houses and move into Erickson campuses. Erickson Realty & Moving Services (ERMS) offers a bold, unprecedented approach to helping people sell their homes and move into any of the company’s 20 campuses.
“People want to move into our retirement campuses, said Tom Neubauer, senior vice president of sales for Erickson, adding that more than 100 people have already moved since the start of 2008. “They need a little reassurance at this time that they are making the right real estate decision. We are putting the pieces in place to help them attain the retirement lifestyle that they want without having to worry about finances and moving logistics.” Neubauer said that hundreds of people express interest in the Erickson retirement lifestyle each week.
The ERMS program has already resulted in a total of 221 settlements in the Michigan, Illinois and Massachusetts markets where it has been introduced initially in the past few months. A national rollout is imminent.
