The acquisition will enable the home-buying company to expand its services to include decluttering, packing, space planning, and unpacking.
SAN DIEGO (February 2, 2021) – Home-buying and selling company SHPP is expanding its services with the acquisition of move-management company Senior Move Masters. San Diego-based SHPP made the announcement today, with the official acquisition taking place on February 1, 2021. The acquisition is in partnership with Jonathan Schwartz of Partner in Aging.
Through their trademark Senior Home Purchase Program®, SHPP purchases homes in their current condition and pays 100 percent of all costs associated with the sale, allowing seniors to bypass a traditional open market sale. The company also offers a home listing program, for those who prefer that route. Senior Move Masters provides seniors with move management services that include sorting and decluttering, space planning, packing and helping the individual unpack and settle into their new home.
“SHPP and Senior Move Masters are both focused on providing a stress-free moving solution to seniors and their families, so this acquisition will create even more value for our customers,” says Rob Perkins, founder and CEO of SHPP. “Senior Move Masters does everything from helping their customers sort through their family heirlooms to setting up their television in their new home. With their services now seamlessly integrated into SHPP, we will be able to provide seniors with a more complete home transition solution.”
Inspired to help others by their own grandparents’ journey to downsize and transition into their senior living homes, Perkins and his sister, Corinne Ross, founded SHPP in 2015 and have since helped 58 families through Senior Home Purchase Program®.
Senior Move Masters has helped more than 4,000 families to date.
“Since 2004, we have helped more than 4,000 families move – including my own relatives – all while following the Golden Rule of treating others as you want to be treated,” said Linda Diller, founder of Senior Move Masters. “We are pleased to hand the reins to SHPP and know they will continue our legacy of serving seniors with respect and compassion.”
Senior Move Masters will continue delivering the same high level of service while also looking for opportunities to enhance and expand their unique service offering. SHPP is pleased that Linda will continue as President of Senior Move Masters until a replacement General Manager is identified, at which point Linda will assist to ensure a seamless transition.
This expansion solidifies SHPP as the go-to company in San Diego County for seniors looking to simplify their transition from their long-time homes.
