Dear Lynneve,

I am writing to express my deep gratitude for everything you did for my family. I honestly don't know what we would have done without you. My parents were faced with a tremendous challenge as they downsized from a large house filled with three generations of cherished possessions and memories to make the move to Winchester Gardens.

You perservered and supported my parents through every aspect of their move, with remarkable compassion and sensitivity. Your knowledge, experience and professionalism ensured that no detail was ever overlooked. You are both trustworthy and talented. It was amazing to see how well you worked with my parents' existing items to give them a lovely new home, with their own furniture and art surrounding them.

As a dughter living in California, I took great comfort in knowing that you were there for my parents when I was unable to be with them. You made yourself fully available to me whenever I had any questions or worries and were an indispensible sounding board from the beginning. I treasure your friendship and have no doubt that you will continue to be there for my family as a valuable source of support and expertise in the future as circumstances inevitably change.

Your assistanse went far beyond expectations and I would wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone in need of a project specialist.

Dear Lynneve.

I have been meaning to drop you a note of thanks for the great work you did for my parents over the last few months.

With my mother's declining health due to Alzheimer's and my father being in and out of the hospital for months, our family decided to move them from their home of almost 20 years into an Independent/Assisted Living Facility. My father to an Independent Living apartment, my Mother to an Assisted living apartment. You handled our delicate situation with compassion and professionalism. Your attention to the all the moving parts was amazing. My father and I are both extremely pleased with the results!

Additionally, I want to thank you for your trustworthiness as you recovered a large number of valuables-including cash-among their possessions. I would recommend you to anyone! Your services are definintely worth the cost. I can't even begin to imagine how we would have accomplished this move without you.

On a positive note, my father has really gotten better over the past few months and is enjoying living in his apartment. Unfortunately my mother continues to decline.

Our family really appreciates everything you have done for my parents. Since you told one of the workmen you were my sister, the grandkids now refer to you as Aunt Lynneve.

To Whom It May Concern:
As a Geriatric Care Manager, from time to time I find it necessary to utilize the services of a senior move manager to assist clients with downsizing their current home and relocating into assisted living communities. This is usually a very sensitive and life changing time for clients and their families. In Lynneve I have found a skilled, caring, and compassionate facilitator who has proven her knowledge of her industry. She has seamlessly moved my clients into their new homes with sensitivity, humor and professionalism time and time again.

Lynneve is a pleasure to work with and I have full confidence in her abilities to take my clients through their entire downsizing & relocation process.
It is without reservation that I recommend NEXTPHASE Senior Downsizing & Relocation Services and especially it’s proprietor, Lynneve Berkowitz, to anyone contemplating the services of a relocation specialist.

Dear Lynneve,

I just wanted to thank you for your work downsizing and relocating my Godmother, Irene Graessle. You were organized and efficient and made the overwhelming task much more manageable. I was particularly impressed with the compassionate and kind way you handled each and every step. Helping her to decide which treasures she couldn’t live without was an arduous task you managed skillfully.

The floor plan you prepared allowed Irene to mentally prepare herself for her first move in 45 years. Your efforts were above and beyond our expectations. Your careful orchestration of the packing, relocation project, emptying of the house and the layout & set up of her new home was just incredible. You walked Irene through every step with dignity, compassion, encouragement and humor. Not a single detail was overlooked. It was particularly impressive that her painting and artwork were hung on the walls of her apartment on that very first night!

During the days we worked together at Irene’s house I came to look upon you as a friend. Thank you for the help you provided to me personally.

Dear Lynneve,

As a senior transition specialist, the services that you provide to both new and existing residents, their families, and our community at Winchester Gardens is a vital resource. You help facilitate the transition into their newest endeavor, which, for most residents is a life-altering event.

You are more than a relocation specialist, a downsizing professional or an organizer, what our residents find in you is a friend. Someone who understands their needs and desires, is gentle, yet effective, someone who will give that slight nudge to let go of the past, and assist in moving forward with the present.

I (we) are honored to work with you! To trust someone implicitly, is to know that our residents are in capable hands. You enable our residents, so that they may Live with a flourish!

Warm Regards,

Colin Stewart

“I hired Lynneve last year to manage the move of my 89-year old aunt from her apartment in Manhattan to an assisted living facility in New Jersey. Lynneve managed the entire process including hiring and supervising the moving company, determining which belongings to bring to the new (smaller apartment) and to storage, and the decoration of my aunt's new apartment. She was a delight to work with; efficient, responsive and very sensitive in her interaction with my aunt, who was quite surprised at how beautiful Lynneve was able to make her new apartment.”

“Working with Lynneve on a downsizing senior move has been a terrific experience for me as well as our client - who told us that we were "marvelous" in helping him through this difficult process. Lynneve is meticulous, professional and an excellent resource for all things related to senior downsizing and relocation. Hiring Lynneve is always the right decision if you are looking for someone to get the job done with discretion, empathy and speed.”

Dear Lynn,
It was nice receiving your call the other day. I'm settled here and quite comfortable. I don't know where to begin to thank you and your associates for all the help and support you gave me in my downsizing and relocation project.

I was filled with worry and tension about the relocation but you understood all of it and made it smooth and worry free for me.

With Warm Regards,

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Ms. Lynneve Berkowitz and her company NEXTPHASE Senior Relocation Services LLC.

I have seen first hand how well Lynn handles herself with our senior population and I have nothing but praise to offer for her efforts. She has proven herself to be committed to helping the senior citizens who turn to her for assistance during what is usually a difficult time. Her positive attitude and her ability to manage and communicate with her clients and their families sets her apart from other companies offering similar services. Lynn takes a personal interest in each client she represents and makes every effort to ensure that their transition is as stress free as possible. Any mature adult looking for an advocate to represent them during a downsizing or a relocation need look no further.
