I have worked with Simplified Lives on a few large projects and I have been greatly impressed by their work. Valerie, Rebecca, and the other members of the Simplified Lives team are professional, reliable and a pleasure to work with! I needed help with moving out of my apartment before it was renovated and then […]

“Cleaning out the old place, disposing of all the accumulated (23 years worth, man) stuff, and staging it for sale. It sold in approximately 7 seconds for much more than we asked. You can all take credit for that. You made an inherently stressful event Easy and Smooth. We tell everyone about your organization and […]

“In December 2009, Valerie Achorn helped move my sister, Wanda G., from a nursing home in Illinois, to a new nursing home (near me and our hometown) in West Virginia. The move would not have happened without Valerie’s organization skills and willingness to do ‘whatever it takes’ to get Wanda re-situated in the nursing home […]

2010 move from Philadelphia to Southern California

“As soon as I figured out that I was moving – I knew that Valerie was the one person I could count on – and trust – to organize my move and overcome any challenges! … Valerie helped me go through my kitchen, all my closets and she helped me clean-out my garage and we […]

“Valerie came to my rescue after the “hurricane of 2011” wreaked havoc in Stonington, Connecticut. Most of my furniture and possessions were being stored in a double garage behind the summer home that I was renting in Stonington Borough. During the hurricane, the tidal surge crashed through the garage – leaving a sodden heap in […]

October 2012, move from South Coast Massachusetts to New Hampshire

“Valerie Achorn’s business called ‘Simplified Lives’ is aptly named because it surely helped simplify my life. My husband has advanced dementia and is unable to help me even with the most simple moving task… Our move to an assisted living community in New Hampshire was greatly assisted by Valerie helping me sort and organize, and […]

“When we could no longer take care of our property the way that seemed best to us, we decided to sell our place, move to another part of the country, and downsize. ‘Downsize’, what a loaded word! We had a barn with a summer apartment on the second floor, and both floors were filled with […]

“Having Valerie as my Moving Manager made me feel like Cinderella. There I was feeling scared and burdened with all the work that lay ahead of me, and suddenly a Fairy Godmother arrived! Her clever packing tricks made it look like a breeze and everything got organized and managed with caring and grace. If a […]

“Valerie was a blessing; I am so glad I hired her. My home of many years was full of everything imaginable. Not only did she do the packing, she was an encyclopedia of knowledge on what and how to do all kinds of things having to do with the move. She taught me how to […]

“So, you’ve decided the time is right to move to a smaller home, apartment or retirement community. But where do you start? The entire process is daunting. You have a lot more furniture than your new place will hold, tons of stuff to give to the kids, and good china and crystal to get rid […]
