With our new Move Concierge™ service, you can leave the details to us and skip straight to the good stuff. EYA is taking the simplicity of your new lock-and-go lifestyle and extending it to your move. Let the experts handle every detail of your transition while you begin exploring the best that city living has to offer.

Kim McMahon, CEO of our Move Concierge™ partner Let’s Move, offers advice on simplifying your move:

“Control your possessions – don’t let them control you!

Most of us accumulate quite a bit of ‘stuff’ over the years – like our kid’s first report card, furniture in storage or boxes that haven’t been opened in years. Remove the burden of boxes and make sure every item in every room of your new home serves a function and purpose for your life, right now. 

Your personal Move Concierge will take stock of your possessions, help you purge things you no longer need and create a customized plan that compliments your lifestyle – bringing order and efficiency, but more important balance and calm, to your new home. There’s no detail that we don’t handle to create your perfect space.”

Now, when you purchase a home at The Oronoco, Little Falls Place or Grosvenor Heights, Move Concierge service is included*.
