Our work speaks for itself, but sometimes it’s nice to get a second opinion.
My parents’ move would not have gone smoothly without House to Home. We would not of thought of the details to be done that HTH helped us with. The moving staff was kind, so helpful and a joy to be around. Wonderful warm and caring. When I brought my mother in to see her new home, all set up, she was so happy she cried. Me too! The team took great care to arrange everything to look pretty and inviting. Love love love the team. Thank you for everything.

Walt and I have moved 10 times in our 57-year marriage. I believe this was the easiest and less stressful of all. Barbara was there from the beginning and her team was terrific. The movers were great. They took great pains with our furniture and were professional at their job.
– Walter and Janet, St. Petersburg, FL
We appreciate everything you and your team did to make this transition (from St. Petersburg to Kansas City) go as smoothly as possible. Thank you for all that you’ve done—those words seem inadequate to express my personal gratitude for the way you guided us through our journey since we first spoke by phone.

It may sound strange to describe someone who helps resolve knotty issues associated with a loved one’s death as a “life saver,” but that’s how my brother, sister and I continue to feel about Barbara Marshall more than a year after our father’s passing. Dad died after the proverbial “short illness” three weeks before Christmas, leaving us feeling not only sad but also at a loss as to how to clear out and clean out the two BR apartment that Dad & Mom had lived in for twenty years with all the furnishings and memorabilia of a 65+ year marriage.
The CCRC gave us two weeks, but we really only had five days before our own ‘worlds’ needed us back. The CCRC’s chaplain recommended Barbara, and after meeting with her for 30 minutes, we knew she was the right person to help us with all of it. Caring, competent, knowledgeable and understanding, Barbara led us through all the decisions that needed to be made while we were together, identified the resources we would need to help us pack and ship home the things we wanted (or wanted time to decide about), and carried out all the tasks that still needed to be done after we left, including selling or giving away everything we left that still had value and seeing that Dad’s apartment was “broom clean” by the “clean out” date.
Recently, Barbara succeeded in finding the right buyer for Dad’s Masonic ring over a year after his death and sent us a check for the proceeds. As with everything she did, Barbara completed this last, almost forgotten, task with professionalism, great personal integrity, a warm, generous and caring spirit and grounded good humor. Barbara Marshall is more than a source of competence, confidence, candor and “can do,” she’s a treasure in a deserted place; a ray of light and clarity in a dark space; and a valued friend in a time of need.

House to Home Relocation was truly a God-Send. Barbara and her team took all the stress out of packing, labeling and then moving my families belongings into our new home. Her team wrapped and then unwrapped every item with care; boxes were organized, labeled & transferred all without damage — I highly recommend House To Home Relocation to anyone needing such service in a heartbeat. Not only has she helped me, personally, House To Home Relocation has become an asset to my clients. As a busy and successful Realtor, in the Tampa Bay area, much of my success is partnering with like minded individuals and companies. House to Home is one of those companies I refer often. Thank you Barbara and Team!

We have referred House to Home Relocation services to our customers for several years. They have helped a number of our residents sort through a houseful of treasures, to select those that will be the most meaningful, useful and decorative in their new home here at Bon Secours Place St. Petersburg. Every customer has been totally satisfied and grateful for the supportive treatment received from Barbara & Jay.
We recently had to evacuate 10 residents to another part of the building due to water damage from a broken water pipe. After, we discovered that it would be at least a month before the residents could go back to their apartments, my thoughts flew to Barbara and Jay. House to Home Relocation stepped in heroically to quickly get the residents as comfortable in their new apartments as they were in their old ones. They brought in high caliber help and assured that the people used would safeguard any items of value that had to be moved.
House to Home Relocation accomplished this in one day with the least amount of upheaval to our residents. I cannot thank Barbara and Jay for their compassionate, accommodating, and efficient help, all while understanding the sense of urgency for this assignment. Each resident had a detailed inventory report and the location that items were placed, so that they could find what they needed and decrease stress for them. Of course, I will be using their services when we have to reverse the process for the move back! I do not know how I could have made this happen alone. Barbara and Jay helped me to steer a steady course through some choppy water! Gratitude is hardly enough.

Moving is never easy, and as one gets older the thought of moving and downsizing can be overwhelming. I was so happy to be put in touch with Barbara and Jay Marshall. They certainly relieved my stress. They did all the packing, arranged to sell some items for me. Then unpacked in my new home, arranged the furniture, hung the pictures. All I had to do was move in and relax. It was absolutely bloomin’ lovely! They were so very kind and I appreciate them. Thank you so very much.
– Beryl P. of St. Petersburg, FL
Everything is just amazing. You all have worked so hard! We just can’t say enough about all of you. Suzanne was unbelievable in Alexandria, too. Your personal attention to the drawings of the St. Pete apt. complete w/measurements and furniture in place was such a tremendous help!
Thank goodness our dear Abby knew about you, Barbara. And thank you so very much for a superb job, here and finding us someone like you in Alexandria. We are anxious to recommend your groups in both cities. It has been a pleasure working with you!

Quite simply, moving an older loved one cannot be done without help. There are so many decisions big and small, easy and complex, that make moving a challenge.
Barbara and Jay made my 86 year old grandmother’s move from her condo of 20 years to a studio apartment such a pleasant and memorable experience. There were many tasks that we wanted to handle as a family, which they gave complete respect for, but House to Home was there for all those decisions and jobs that just needed to be taken care of by an expert.
I put complete trust in Barbara and her crew to handle precious family matters and materials and they did not disappoint. I could not have asked for a better moving experience with people that take a genuine interest in their clients and families. Even in the weeks after the move, Barbara and Jay have remained in touch, and my grandmother considers them “close friends”. Just when I needed an angel, I was given House to Home Relocation.

It’s this simple. My Mother deserved the proper respect, dignity, and attention during all phases of her recent move from an independent, to assisted living, facility and she received just that from Barbara Marshall, House To Home Relocation.
Yet, it was also extremely important that Barbara manage those that were ultimately the decision-makers in this wonderful, yet challenging lifestage transition me and my brothers! And she did just that as well.
Experienced. Insightful. Responsive. Compassionate. And more. From our entire family, we thank you.

House to Home Relocation was a Godsend. In March 2012, my Mom received notice that the senior living facility she resided in was closing on April 15, 2012. We went into panic mode. The facility she was in had a meeting for the family of the residents which my brother and I attended.
There were many local businesses in attendance you could speak with concerning relocation or assistance with moving. My brother and I struck up a conversation with House to Home Relocation owner Jay and immediately I felt that everything was going to okay. He stated his son lives in Richmond, Virginia, where our family is originally from and there was a unique connection. About a week later, I called and spoke with his wife Barbara. Her understanding and caring approach again reconfirmed the sense of everything is going to be okay.
We arranged a meeting between my Mom and myself and Barbara and Jay. It went great and their professionalism and attentiveness was more than we could have expected. We knew they were going to help us and really cared about doing the best job they could. They even helped sell a washer and dryer that my mom had. Packing Day and Moving Day went wonderful-again putting us at ease. The staff Barbara and Jay have are wonderful as well and use the same approach of caring for your personal items as if they were their own. Even the movers they arranged to use were professional and courteous.
What I thought was going to be a nightmare, turn out to be a great experience and we are so glad that Barbara and Jay came into our lives when they did. We would highly recommend them for assistance in moving a loved one or any of their other services they offer. They definitely go above and beyond and treat you as a member of their family.

I have not yet used House to Home Relocation but having a decades-long friendship with Barbara and Jay Marshall, I can’t imagine a more caring and capable team.
Barbara and Jay have two lifetimes within the professional world, and poignant compassionate experiences in caring for and moving loved ones. This is a daunting task but would be made comfortable and would be completed to utmost satisfaction by the Marshalls. Can’t recommend them highly enough.
– Gail, Alexandria, VA
House to Home helped me transition my 97-year old mother to a nursing home in Florida. While packing boxes, they found $85 that my mother had hidden in a drawer and gave it to me. They decorated my mother’s room at the the nursing home, hanging many pictures on the walls and arranging the furniture to best suit her needs.
They worked with the movers and people at the nursing home and found an appropriate charity that needed our excess furniture. They made the move hassle free for me and my mother. Thank you House to Home!

House to Home Relocation went over and beyond when helping a friend move from her apartment to an assisted living community in Tampa. Not only did they treat her personal belongings as if they were their own, they moved her two beautiful cats with all of the care and attention that you would do with your own four-legged family members.
When my friend ended up in the hospital a few days after the move, Barbara returned to the new apartment to make sure that everything was taken care of and in place. She even provided a lock for my friend’s on-site storage unit – a detail which had been overlooked with the unexpected hospitalization. I would highly recommend Barbara and Jay for a caring and careful relocation experience.

I was very much impressed with House to Home Relocation. They developed a plan to help move my 96 year old mom ‘s belongings from Florida to New York with sensitivity, care and professionalism.
They provided moving company estimates and were proactive in getting us all of the detailed information that we needed. They packed with great care and attention to the smallest detail. A special box was also packed for things to give to my sister and another for charitable donations. They were there to answer questions and facilitate the move, day or night, even on weekends. When my husband and I couldn’t be there when the movers came, House to Home was there to organize, and direct the move.
The House to Home Relocation team is compassionate, dedicated and in constant contact with all of the details of the move. I would highly recommend them and wouldn’t hesitate in using them again.
– Cheryl, North Babylon, NY
House to Home Relocation delivered excellent service with a last minute request by me to move one of our residents and her furnishings to another level of care within our community. Within 3 hours, our resident’s new suite was set up with wall hangings hung, blankets and pillows on chairs, and photos and small collectibles displayed.
The personal attention given by Barbara to ensure our resident’s comfort was terrific.
– Susan, St. Petersburg, FL / Bon Secours Place
House to Home Relocation was very generous in giving a few hours of their time and direction to one of my patients who needed to move quickly from independent living to a nursing home. House to Home Relocation was referred to me, and without ever meeting Barbara Marshall, she did an outstanding job in facilitating resources for this individual with limited financial means and put together an action plan to get him moved.
I am grateful for compassionate people like Barbara and Jay Marshall who helped me immensely with my client and would highly recommend them for future senior moves.
– Susan, Pinellas Park, FL / Mederi Caretenders Home Health Care
I would highly recommend House to Home Relocation, as we had such a good experience! Barbara and Jay are very professional, and at the same time, very compassionate and sensitive to what their clients are going through. Barbara and Jay came highly recommended from a trusted friend to move my 81 year old mother from St. Petersburg to Minnesota.
After our first meeting, I knew we would be well taken care of. Barbara went the extra mile and got to know my mother and gained her trust over weeks before she started to pack her apartment. On move day, they were there to ensure all went smoothly. Barbara took special care of my mother’s favorite paintings and her beloved piano. Because of Barbara and Jay’s previous moving experiences, it was very beneficial having their expert help.
They also communicated with the Minnesota senior move manager on how the apartment was to be set up. Barbara’s floor plan and pictures were hugely instrumental to the team’s success during the unpacking. We couldn’t have done this major interstate move without House to Home Relocation.
– Donna, Eden Prairie, MN
I’ve had the pleasure of working with the folks from House to Home before they launched their business. Their ability to organize and facilitate complex projects is truly amazing. But what sets Barb and Jay apart is their love and care of people. For them, nothing is more important. You WILL be happy at the end of your move; they wouldn’t have it any other way.
– Sue, Sun City Center, FL
House to Home helped me transition my 87-year old uncle to assisted living in Florida. They supported my search for the perfect facility, arranged for a moving company, packed boxes, sold unwanted furniture, and helped my uncle get acclimated. I couldn’t have done it without them.
– Mike, Dallas, TX
I live in Massachusetts and had to be a caretaker for my Aunt in Florida. I hired House to Home Relocation and it was the best decision I ever made in my life. If it weren’t for Barbara I would not have been able to do for my Aunt in Florida. She did more for me and my Aunt especially working with her from Massachusetts. She took pictures, got me receipts, when needed so that I never had to question anything that was done. I was so pleased with her concern and efficiency. I would recommend her to all who has to take care of their loved ones. I could have never had done all this without her help.
– Barbara, Dracut, MA
Thanks to you and your team for the work you did to help me move Mom from her home in Sun City to a senior community in St. pete. You understood the challenge I had in dealing with someone who just lost her husband, and was less than anxious to leave her home. The coordination of every aspect of the move was amazing. I appreciated the phone calls to inform me of what to expect when, and more than that I appreciated that everything happened how and when you said it would, almost to the minute. Your team took such care in dealing with my mom who was in a very fragile state, and very often not easy to handle. As Maryellen and Bobbie packed her belongings, things that meant so much to her, I realized that they were packing them as though they were their own family members things. They are truly compassionate people who enjoying helping others and it comes across in all they do. Maryellen even texted me pictures of the finished apartment so that I could show Mom before she arrived. It turned out great!!! Thank you again for helping our family through a tough situation. I couldn’t have done it without you and your whole team.
