Having started the Homemover Specialist Ltd in 2012, Meirion Shaw now has a team of 4 further Homemover Planners, Louise Fleming, Debra Sims, Kate Thompson and Sarah Alexander working alongside her.
All excellent project managers in their own right who combine their organising skills with loads of empathy and a sense of fun, making moving house less stressful and much more enjoyable.
And what was the impetus behind Meirion starting The Homemover Specialist? Well, in time honored fashion, it was personal experience. Within months, both her mother-in-law and her godmother downsized. Whilst one had lots of support, the other battled on on her own. Both successfully completed their moves, but whereas one was ready for her next adventure, the other was physically and emotionally exhausted. Fairly soon after this, her friend’s marriage finished and he needed help finding and setting up a new home whilst balancing his demanding job. Then some American friends were moving to the UK and needed help finding schools, a new home and how to circumnavigate the English way of life.
“I saw at this time that there was a role for a surrogate daughter/friend – someone who could reduce a lot of the stress associated with moving by being there as an independent resource. There to hold a hand, be a shoulder to cry on or an expert in her field – anything and everything from finding their new home to live in, decluttering, selling/buying furniture, managing the conveyancing process to recommending schools.”
Added to the emotional crux is their detailed knowledge of the property market, a network of invaluable connections, and insight into the complex mechanics of buying, selling, renting, and relocating.
