Major life transitions can be overwhelming to navigate as many of them involve moving from an old, beloved home to new, unfamiliar one. While this transition can be full of opportunities and anticipation for what’s to come, we understand it can also hold feelings of sadness, loss, and anxiety for many.
At The Kim Phillips Real Estate Team, it is our honour to assist our clients through major life transitions with our “Compassionate Real Estate Services.” Our team has extensive experience working with families through some of life’s most trying times. We approach each situation with compassion, respect, understanding, and support. No matter what you’re going through, we are here to help make the process as smooth as possible.
Here’s how we can help:
Moving on from divorce and separation
Moving homes is not without its difficulties, especially when it happens after a divorce or separation. As you deal with the pain of a breakup, it can be hard to focus on relocating, especially if there are children involved. Will this new house feel like home? How do I find a realtor who understands the complexities of my situation? Will my children like the new house? All of these concerns are completely warranted; however, rest assured that with the right help, an empty house can be transformed into a loving and peaceful home.
From start to finish, our real estate team is here to support you. While we will never gloss over your sadness, we can help uncover the excitement and anticipation of your situation. As a team, we specialize in compassionate real estate and are well-versed in the complexities of moving after a divorce or separation. Whether you’re looking for a home just for you or to be shared with family and friends, community is everything. We will support you in buying a home that has everything you need: from a welcoming, tight-knit community like Cloverdale to a fast-paced, central area like Langley and everything in between. You are not alone in this journey, and we hope to prove that to you with every step we take.
Relocating for work
Relocating for work can be an exciting – albeit scary – time. Whether you’re moving from another country, across Canada, or a neighbouring BC city, you deserve a realtor who can guide you through the relocation process. That’s where we come in! We can tailor our real estate experience to fit your needs, hopefully minimizing any stress you feel about the move.
Want to visit your (maybe) new home? We can coordinate schedules to book showings into your visit so you can view the homes in person. If you prefer to view them remotely, we can provide thorough virtual tours to give you the confidence and knowledge you need to take the plunge.
When scouting for a home in a new city, we understand you may not know exactly what you’re looking for. However, as an experienced real estate team, it’s our honour to help you find a home that is perfectly suited to fit your new lifestyle. From transit accessibility and proximity to work to local amenities and community ideals, you can trust us to be your real estate roadmap, guiding you in the right direction.
Transitioning into a senior care facility
Moving from a home into a senior care facility can come with numerous challenges. Whether you’re a family member moving a loved one into a care facility, or a senior making this change for yourself, we promise to help you navigate these next steps. This is one of the toughest decisions a family or individual can make, making it vitally important that you have the support you deserve.
While it can feel like a loss of independence, transitioning into a care facility can provide more autonomy, security, and comfort than ever. With that said, leaving a beloved home you’ve grown so familiar with is never easy. As your realtors, we can assist with the selling of your home, ensuring empathy, consideration, and respect throughout the process. We will do everything within our power to ease the weight of this adjustment, for both you and your family.
Mourning the loss of a loved one
If you are dealing with the passing of a loved one, we’d like to first extend our deepest condolences. We know how heart wrenching this time of grieving can be, and we wish you nothing but love and support during this time. With a heavy heart, we offer real estate services to help you sell or buy property after losing a loved one. An emotional and uncertain period, our “Compassionate Commission Structure” can provide some financial relief in your time of mourning. If you need real estate assistance, our team is always here to support you.

Because of that, our real estate team has honed years of experience and knowledge to help make this transition as easy as possible. With our help, we hope to give you the caring, considerate, and supportive real estate experience you deserve.
