Since 2006 The Miller Realty Group has helped over 625 families within Metro Orlando with their real estate needs. During that time over the past couple of years we began to notice that we were starting to work with more and more Baby Boomers who were wanting to downsize their homes into something that was a better fit for their desired life style. Some of the top reasons we have found on why they would want to downsize are ; 1) the house they currently live in was too big and too hard to manage, 2) they didn't want to have to continue to invest a lot of time in maintaining their property (taking care of the lawn, landscaping, repairing the roof, AC, etc). They wanted the capability to be able to travel without having to worry about taking care of the property while they were gone, and 3) they wanted to be able to lower their monthly expenses so they could invest more money on traveling rather then the house.
As we all know when you make a move it can be stressful and if you are a mature adult it can become downright overwhelming. As a result, we’ve come up with a solution that allows the baby boomer to stay excited about the move and allows us to shoulder the burden of working out all the details.
We’ve created a 5 Step Baby Boomer Transition Program for Orlando mature adults which is basically similar to a concierge service. What we do, which is unique to us, is that we manage the entire process from start to finish for the baby boomer in Metro Orlando. This means the mature adult only has one point of contact and we manage the rest! We’ve put together a top notch team of organizers, estate sellers, trades services, movers, packers, basically anyone that would be needed to help make the transition. We’ve broken the plan down into five simple steps:
Step 1: Initial Consultation: We will set up an appointment to meet with you and provide a complimentary home evaluation. Once the home evaluation is complete, we will come up with a comfortable action plan for your desired time frame.
Step 2: Getting Organized: Once we have derived a comfortable action plan, we have to determine what the baby boomer is going to take with them and what they are going to leave behind. If needed, our professional organizers can help the mature adults with these tough decisions. They can even help them pack.
Step 3: Taking Inventory: After it is determined what items will be taken to the new place, the baby boomers have to decide what they would want to do with everything which is remaining. They could do an estate sale, they could donate it, or they could even do a clean out. Whatever they decide to do we have a preferred vendor who could help them do it!
Step 4: Preparing the Home for Sale: A lot of times we find sellers investing money in the wrong things before they sell their house. One of the best things that we do is walk through the house with the sellers and share with them our expertise on what things we would recommend doing to the house and which ones not to worry about. That you if they do want to invest some money into the house it will ensure that they will get it back when it sells plus more. If they decide to do so we have a list of trusted vendors who could help with the cleanings, home repairs, and any other services which may be needed.
Step 5: Marketing & Selling the Property: In order to get the most amount of equity out of their house we would then plug their house into our marketing machine to expose their house to 100% of the buyers in the market place utilizing the best technologies. Through our robust marketing program our listings on average sell for more than 1-4% than the average in Orlando (sold vs list price) and they also typically sell far below the average days on market before you get a contract.
Again, our goal is to make the moving process as smooth and effortless as possible for the seniors in Orlando and the adult children. We find that this program can help the senior from becoming overwhelmed and paralyzed and keep them excited about making the move which is what everyone wants.

I can't say enough about the fine job The Miller Realty Group did for the sell of my mother-in- law's house. I had just a week to fly back to FL from California and fine a realtor I felt comfortable with, and set up the sale of her house. First off, he has a network of terrific professionals at very reasonable prices! The Miller Realty Group was very good at pricing and helping with what I should spend the money on for quick sale. He was so right ! David kept us in the loop at ever step during the escrow. I totally felt I was good hands even though I was 3000 miles away!

Especially as seniors, selling one’s long time home and moving into new surroundings is very stressful. Even though it does not make the top ten stressers, it should. To get through this complex maze of decisions, numerous forms, moving logistics, etc.it is extremely helpful if one has a good support team representing him. David Miller of the Miller Realty Group of Keller Williams Heritage Realty delivers such support to his clients and more. Not only is he a very capable real estate agent who gets results, he is a team player and friend. This helped us immensely in getting through the process. If one needs to sell their home, I sincerely and with confidence recommend David Miller as their real estate agent.

"When I put my house on the market it was initially scary for me, as I am a disabled senior. I had previously received a post card in the mail from The Miller Realty Group so I held on to it knowing I would eventually give you a call. I did call and was very happy because you took out all of the fear I had initially in moving. At the consultation you showed us what needed to be done to get the house prepared for sale. When we put the property on the market your team set up all of the open houses and we got a buyer. Yet again David and his team through the next steps in the process as well. Thank you! thank you! thank you, for making an otherwise scary process bearable for me and my family. "
