About Make It Home

Make It Home is a full-service Senior Move Management company. We assist older adults and their families with the daunting and, often times, overwhelming physical and emotional process of moving from their current residence to a new home.

Whether it involves downsizing the family home of many decades or rightsizing a retirement home, moving to a senior living community or a place near the grandkids (or beach), the planning and execution of late-life transitions can be hard work and exhausting. Because of this, a lot of people put off moving even if it puts themselves at risk of accidents (like falling) and the loneliness of living alone.

Make It Home reduces the worry and angst by providing professional, caring and cost-effective solutions to people who are faced with late-life moves. Our goal is to expertly manage and coordinate the move to ensure our clients are happy and comfortable in their new home.

We adhere to the strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the National Association of Senior & Specialty Move Managers (NASMM). Every client’s needs are unique; however, the way we treat all our clients is the same, with honesty, respect and kindness. Because that’s who we are.

About the Owner and Founder – Deanna Waters

I started Make It Home, LLC because I recognized that practically everyone I know has experienced a major late-life move that was incredibly difficult on them and their families. I thought there must be a better way to organize and manage all the components of transitioning from one home to another, and I want to be part of the solution. With my extensive background in project and cost management, along with decades of client and supplier relationship building, helping people in this capacity seemed like a natural fit and something I’d really enjoy.

When I ask someone if they know what senior move management is, most reply, “No, I don’t. What is it?” Then I explain that it’s the profession of helping older adults and their families through the challenges of downsizing and transitioning to a new residence. Invariably, the response is, “Wow! I sure wish I had that assistance when I was helping my (loved one) move.” This conversation takes place often; and on every occasion it reinforces my decision and desire to do what I do.

Make It Home, LLC owner and founder Deanna Waters has been awarded the Senior Move Manager-Certified (SMM-C) credential by the National Association of Senior & Specialty Move Managers (NASMM).

Make it Home, LLC is insured and bonded.
