Melody has 10 years’ experience in senior positions in the the lifestyle industry during which time she developed serious concerns about the potential for unscrupulous entities to confuse and disenfranchise older folk.

To avoid potentially disastrous decisions buyers must do their research more diligently, or use the services of an experienced professional to help them. It is crucial that you understand all the ins and outs of any of the villages you’re considering BEFORE you sign on the dotted line.

The service we offer is comprehensive;

    • We have developed an ever-growing database of all retirement communities in various areas within our service region, which breaks down the Ingoing, Ongoing and Outgoing costs, itemizes all their offerings and restrictions in order to match them to our clients’ individual wants and needs.
    • After short-listing a number of communities, we will accompany the client on their initial visit to assist them with discussions with the sales staff.
    • Conduct an in-depth anaylsis of each of the short-listed villages’ offerings and compile a report itemizing costs, restrictions and provisions.
    • Once they have made their final choice, will walk them through the contract process, ensuring that they understand all the details and potential pitfalls.

For more complex arrangements we can even recommend the services of a reputable financial planning company which offers solutions relevant to them.

When my Dad had to downsize and sell his 4BR, 3 level family home of 26 years and also find a retirement village that met his requirements, his Real Estate Agent put him in touch with Melody Lucas and her daughter Shae. Their experience in de-cluttering, downsizing, packing, moving and unpacking was a Godsend. The icing on the cake was Melody’s sourcing of an apartment that was perfect for my Dad.

We could go on and on about the experience we had with the whole process. Suffice to say that we cannot recommend Melody and Shae highly enough for the service they provided in such a friendly and professional manner. Kindness towards an aging client being the key element.

Definitely a 5 star rating from us!
