I always offer to do what we can, but no one has ever accepted.  Most of our buyers are military, and their household goods are delivered to their door and moved right into the home!

Hi Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Call 631-805-4400 (c) 

I have helped get boxes and pack them up. I have also helped clients to find a local mover with good prices and results. I have not actually helped move their stuff from one house to another but maybe in the future. I am always there if needed but cannot lift heavy boxes.

yes. 2x. It was because Fannie Mae closed up shop at 5pm on a Friday and didnt get the memo the transaction funded and the buyers didnt get the key til the following monday. So they no longer had moving help so my husband and I moved them in! 

The other time was due to delay in closing as well. So we moved them in. LOL

Yes, but only once. When I was in the real estate business, I was involved with a transaction that involved the sale of 6 homes, I was involved with 4 of them. I was not willing to take any chances.

Hi Sheila and Larry -- I've given clients names of movers, coordinated with people to pick up/take away items, given boxes, helped direct clean-up crews but have yet helped a client move.

Yes and I also helped a seller finish getting his last load of laundry out of the dryer as well as helping him empty his refrigerator.  Oh, did I mention that I was the buyer's agent in that transaction? Oh, the things we do!

No that is one thing I have never done. I have sent over a cleaning team, when the sellers moved out of state and left the home dirty and I have sent over a yard guy to cut overgrown grass. These gestures were always appreciated and I listed their home when the sold that one and the moved up.

While I may point them to resources to make their move easier, I've never been involved in the actual moving. There's too much liability, and because it's outside the scope of the transaction there is also no insurance.

We help in all different ways throughout the transaction but physically packing and moving boxes or furniture may be a bit more than many of us could or should handle.
