Leaving your social circle and all the familiarities of your hometown can cause some trepidation as you plan to retire and move to another city or state.
Teresa Stanbrough is a “concierge realtor” in Las Vegas specializing in helping California retirees relocate to exclusive guard-gated and golf communities of Summerlin. She knows that her clients need and want more than just a professional realtor to find them a home.
“People who are retiring and relocating need so much more than a realtor just to find them a home,” comments Teresa. “They need to feel comfortable in knowing that their best interests are top of mind with their new home, community and social setting.”
She helps define the needs of each client by first asking them the type of lifestyle they are seeking followed with the specifics of what they are looking for in a home.
“Some people want exclusive private clubs, golf amenities, walking trails and social activities, while others are looking to travel while maintaining a lock and leave lifestyle. Summerlin’s guard-gated communities and luxury condo living affords my clients the ability to enjoy their travels without worries on home ownership. Each client is different, and I focus on them as an individual.”
“I look at every client as if I am helping close family and friends move. They want to know that I will introduce them to the local lifestyle and continue to assist them after they move in and make the transition.”
People moving to a new city or state, in addition to finding the right home, also need guidance to the connections they are leaving behind: restaurants, sports activities, entertainment, home maintenance and referrals for personal needs.
“Connecting clients with other friends based on their personal interests and social life is also an important role I take and truly enjoy. Hosting wine tastings, small dinner parties, social gatherings and even cruising with past clients is an added benefit that my husband and I enjoy.”
In January, Teresa hosted a Client Appreciation Event at Fairway Hills in the guard-gated community of the Ridges. Steve Tobia, Publisher of DREAMS, shared information on California’s transformation to an international region, the impact of their housing prices and the migration to Las Vegas. The event was catered by Chicali Tacos, which was enjoyed by everyone!
“Living is so much more than just having a home. People want to belong to a community and have a social circle of others that share their same interests. I offer my clients the complete personal concierge service from new home to new friends.”
