Bernard downsizes and doesn’t look back!

Published: 23 August 2019

Making the decision to move into a retirement development isn’t always an easy one. But from talking to Bernard, it’s easy to see that it’s been a great decision for him.

Bernard had come to realise that his current state of health meant that he needed to make the move into smaller accommodation. He needed accommodation that was more modern and warmer. Bernard’s current home was too big with too much stuff. This meant he felt isolated from other people his own age and was unable to cope.

Bernard had initial concerns about having to downsize. He also had concerns about not having enough room to take his possessions with him to his new apartment. Bernard now admits that downsizing wasn’t a problem when it came to the move to his new retirement apartment in Altrincham, Trafford, Greater Manchester.

When talking about his new apartment in Altrincham, he happily shares that it’s nice and warm with friendly people all around. Even the communal lounge where people regularly meet for morning coffee or afternoon tea is much bigger than he was expecting. He found it a comfortable place to be with lots of seating.

At RetirementMove, we pride ourselves on being honest and open throughout the buying and selling process. This was valued by Bernard, as he described us as very friendly and earnest. He also highlighted just how much he appreciated the ‘honest advice and being kept informed’.
Having found out about our services from another development in the area, Bernard says:

“I would happily recommend RetirementMove to my friends and family members, and would say they are courteous, informative and timely”.

Although Bernard didn’t choose RetirementMove over another agent for any one reason, Bernard described the business as ‘doing what it says on the tin’.

“We are pleased to have been able to help Bernard find his new home and we’re happy that he has found a new home that is friendly, welcoming and comfortable.” Tina Broderick, RetirementMove
