Lisa and Jess provide quality home moving, home staging, house styling and relocation services for those moving house, downsizing or selling their home.
After helping family and friends downsize, move house and declutter over several years as well as having to downsize themselves, Lisa and Jess have combined their resources to help other families going through similar situations.
Combined with over 20 years worth of client and customer service, aged care, organizational, finance and consultative experience, Lisa and Jess bring both experience and youth to create a dynamic duo.
“Moving my mother from her family home of over 40 years was a very emotional and stressful experience for her and for my family. As both my sisters did not live in Melbourne, I was burdened with the exhausting task of helping mum move to her retirement village and then later to her aged care facility. If only Home Moving Planners was around back then, I wouldn’t have had to take time off work. I know that the stress this caused me, made it hard for me to reflect on the emotional experience this was for mum and in some ways her needs were not met. Having Home Moving Planners around back then would have meant I could have focused on mum’s wellbeing and it would have been a calm and comfortable move for the both of us!”
As well as working full time, Lisa is also a carer for the elderly and a proud mother of Jess and James. She loves tennis, golf and gardening. Lisa is also a photographer who finds the time to volunteer as a photographer for the Carey Baptist Grammar School rugby, rowing, tennis and Aussie rules teams, plus the Viewbank Horse Riding Club for the Disabled.
Also, Lisa has had over 5 years experience in a similar position with another company.
“Moving house from a three storey family home of 15 years to a much smaller townhouse was an exceptionally stressful, overwhelming, exhausting and a very emotional experience for my family. We had to sort through years worth of our treasured possessions, prepare our house to sell, pack everything up, say goodbye to our family home and set up our new house. I wish we had these home moving, home staging, decluttering and relocation services to help us with this stressful time, particularly as all members of my family were working and were very time poor! This put added stress and strain on our move!
Thus we have created Home Moving Planners, so that other families do not have to continue to go through this stressful experience!”
Jess is daughter to mum Lisa, and is a graduate of Monash University with a degree in Psychological Science. She has over 5 years of customer service and retail experience. She loves to play tennis and netball and has always been interested in having a career where she can help other people.
