“I am an attorney. My client needed rapid response and intelligent work under difficult circumstances. Assisted Transitions accomplished exactly what I asked - on time and on budget.”
“Thank you so much for making such a painful time so worry and stress free.”
(Federal Way, WA)
“I had no idea where to even begin in sorting through 23 years of stuff to get my house ready to sell in the face of a very difficult divorce and very short timeline. Assisted Transitions came through for me in every way and helped me get my house ready in a matter of days. I am completely serious when I say I could never have gotten it done without them. Annie is one of the warmest and most caring people I have ever met, and the organizational and problem-solving skills of her and her team are phenomenal. I can't recommend Assisted Transitions highly enough!”

“The work was great and completed in record time.”
“Assisted Transitions made our moving experience easier and reduced the stress in preparation for our move across the country. The packing tips & delivery of materials was a huge help. They helped facilitate the moving company and provided responsive assistance every step of the way. We highly recommend using their services as it saved us time & money and made for an easy transition moving out of state. Thank you Annie & Laurie!”
The Rowe Family
(Seattle to Texas)
“Annie, Laurie and team are wonderful. You can not put a price on the care and genuine interest they took in helping my Mom transition to her new home. As my Mom said, "they are part of our family now"! We couldn't have done it without them. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. My Mom loves you, my sisters are incredibly grateful and words can't express how much you eased my mind. Thanks for everything.”
“You made moving much less of a chore. It helped so much having you come and check out what I had and decide what to take and where it would be placed. Plus your getting rid of the things I didn't want any more. It relieved us of that chore. Bless you.”
“The Assisted Transitions team is a lifesaver! They came to my rescue and tackled a daunting task with enthusiasm. They made my moving process stress free.”
“Finding your flyer at my local bakery changed my life. When you and your team came in, I was a tad nervous, but you made it okay to have some help by your thoughtful ways. I changed how I think regarding clutter, where to keep each item and how to disseminate my paperwork, which helped me to focus on what really matters in my life—my family.
I had a huge mess, a terribly disorganized home from years of illness. Your directed help on sorting every single item was only the beginning. Culling through all sorts of things, as well as recycling, reusing, reordering, and ridding my spaces of the unnecessary every-things we tend to keep for no good reason, made me a better, calmer person. I can figure out where things go now. I can sift through the mail, keeping only minimal paper. I actually have places for what I need to have around. Thank you Assisted Transitions and especially your staff. It has continued to be a great experience well after your departure.”
“When you were recommended to me by B. Hill, I was pretty depleted. I was overwhelmed. I had to move my business and my home from King County to Northern Snohomish County. I had to move my storeroom in Ballard, out of my brother's basement in Hawthorne Hills, and out of a friend's house in Lynnwood.
You came to my rescue. When I showed up on move day at 9AM, you already had the two men with a truck there loading, had called my friend volunteers, had all the utilities turned on at my new-construction home. You had maps and printouts for all to get to Crosswater, and had it all moved by 3PM.
You also had the paper curtains and valances up on the windows so I had privacy that night. That meant a lot to me, and saved me a lot of money. You measured the new windows ahead of time and visited my new home so you knew what was needed.
You had a laminated list for me of who, when and how much the utilities would run. That was great and will come in handy. You told me when my trash and recycle cans would arrive.
I can't really name all you did to make this major move easier in my life. Thank you for the gift for my bathroom as a token of your caring and friendship. Thank you for arranging for the handyman to come hang pictures for me. He is coming again to mow the new lawn until I buy a mower.
Your good–natured equanimity and organizational skills are so incredible. I was to the point of needing an anti-anxiety drug, but instead called you. You are better than Prozac!
I would recommend you to anyone seeking help with changes in their life based on your fingertip knowledge of resources available.”
(Lake Stevens, WA)
“Annie is a person who does what she says she will do when she says she will do it and all with a smile. I wish I could get her to manage my whole life, not just my move!”
“I can't say enough good things about Assisted Transitions. They help you move, and I definitely needed help with that this year. I'm typically very busy and not so typically absent minded. Assisted Transitions' crew came to my rescue. I had sold my condo early this year and rather neglected to find a new place to live. As I ran around Seattle looking for a new home base, the Assisted Transitions team calmly took care of my world. They packed me up, moved me and unpacked me into my temporary location. I have lots of delicate items and each item has a 'place' where it lives (no I don't have OCD). Not only did my various items make it in one piece, they also made it to the right location. I was so satisfied that I employed them again this year to move me to my new home. Thanks!”
“The Assisted Transitions team personifies customer service. I am always impressed by their dedication, ethics and ability to understand their clients as a person first; then complete the job with perfection. I know that when I recommend them to a family to help them downsize,move and decorate, they will go above and beyond to meet their needs and expectations. I would recommend Assisted Transitions to anyone looking to move, downsize or even looking for help designing their new living space.”
(Former Executive Director, Aegis of Redmond)
“The fact that Annie and I share a last name is immaterial to the amazing service I received from Assisted Transitions.
My rented storage locker was my "Pile Of Denial," and it seethed and stank in the back of my brain for a year or more. Then I hired Assisted Transitions to go in there and sort it out. For an incredibly reasonable sum, my Pile Of Denial was turned into something out of an Ikea catalog! Everything clearly sorted, labeled, and packed properly.
Now, a year later, the effects of Assisted Transitions work are still patently obvious in my storage space, and I actually receive compliments from other people in the storage facility about how organized I am!
It's not me. It's Assisted Transitions.”
Marketing and Community Energizer
“Assisted Transitions has helped me move several times. It's really more than help—they just jump in and take care of everything. They have an innate sense about organization and process... it's amazing to watch them. They are respectful and thorough, yet get the job done quickly and efficiently. Assisted Transitions has been the key to many successful, low-stress moves on both the packing and unpacking sides. I'd never think about doing it myself again.”
(Tiburon to Oakland, CA)
“Your team paid attention to detail and included a personal touch that was amazing. I would recommend your business to anybody.”
R. Cook, Managing Director, CitiCapital
“Annie and Assisted Transitions have been an amazing support system to our family. The day after our twin daughters were born, they were instrumental in packing up our old apartment belongings and helping us move into our first home. Upon my homecoming, the house was completely organized down to the lining in the cupboards. There were even flowers placed all around the house—I knew I was home!”
(Berkeley to San Rafael, CA)
“I've been working with Annie Jacobsen and Laurie Christomos for the past 2 years and they have been an asset to my customers and me. I work with numerous retirement homes and the transition is often times stressful and overwhelming. Annie and Laurie are organizer extraordinaires! By the time my crews show up on move day everything is ready to go and our clients are less stressed and looking forward to being in their new home. They are patient, attentive and thoughtful. Annie and Laurie are a pleasure to work with and every chance I get I recommend them.”
Paula Seward, Moving Consultant
(Hansen Bros Moving & Storage)
“Thanks Assistant Transitions! We truly appreciated your service with our move. We presume all moves are physically and emotionally demanding. Our downsizing sure was. You helped us with our most challenging task, however, the sale of nice furniture. Your pre-advertising turned out buyers and your day of sale planning, execution and supporting cast were great. We would be pleased to be references to your future clients. Thanks again.”
C. and T. Graham
“Living on opposite coasts, my sister and I greatly appreciated Assisted Transitions' help getting our mother relocated from L.A. to Seattle several years ago. Their extensive research and personal visits to retirement community options found the perfect place for our mother to live comfortably with great care and dignity.”
S. Hall III
(Los Angeles, CA to Seattle, WA)
“Everyone knows—call Annie and she'll jump in to do the job. The worst part of our move was the last day and I still had the attic to do. It was late July, so just going up there was no easy task. I got one load down the fold-up staircase and was already hot and crabby. Annie took one look at me, climbed up there and finished it off! She was hot, but not crabby, and I was extremely grateful.”
(Bellevue to Marysville, WA)
“Thanks again for the magnificent job you did and your ongoing wisdom and encouragement.”
(San Francisco, CA)
“The Assisted Transitions team did an amazing job of packing my household on time and on budget. I was able to leave for film shoots and check in at the end of the day with no problem. Annie was very responsive to communications and worked within my schedule.”
“I've had the pleasure of sharing a couple of clients with Annie. Working with her is such a pleasure; she is incredibly professional, well organized and a true team player. As far as I'm concerned moving without Annie's services is out of the question!!!!”
NEST (Interior Redesign Services)
“Thank you, thank you, and THANK YOU again for all of your amazing help yesterday. You are true miracle workers! I can't tell you what a RELIEF it is to have my huge pile of *stuff* from my move put away and organized. And best of all you helped me feel like it was all going to be OKAY!!!”
“Moving here from Massachusetts, your help was greatly appreciated, both in unpacking our belongings and in helping us become acclimated to the area. By being in contact with your counterpart back east, you were well prepared to do your job. Thank you for all the special things you did for us.”
Paul and Mary Steranka
(Boston, MA to Mill Creek, WA)
“Thanks for all of your help. Everyone was very professional and I could not have gotten the packing/moving done without Assisted Transitions. Please be sure to tell everyone how much I appreciated their good work.”
“I thought I had my moving plan all in place when I first called Annie. Just thought I would use her "in the event of an emergency." Little did I know I was already in the middle of my crisis. If it hadn't have been for the great people at Assisted Transitions, I never would have gotten through the packing and moving in one piece. They literally saved me both physically and emotionally. Annie is a very sympathetic and compassionate person, which makes working with her so easy. She just gets it and you don't even have to work at getting her to understand. It's innate with her. She's a wonderful lady—smart, responsible, and dependable! I just wish I could afford to have her organize and run my life full time!!! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Assisted Transitions to any of my friends or colleagues.”
“Thanks! The kitchen is perfect. I can't believe all the books fit. The bathroom is wonderful, and the entire place looks beautiful. I appreciate all of your very hard work.”
“Annie was amazing!!! I was in a panic with my closing date fast approaching. She came in—brought boxes and packed up and sorted out my son's bedroom and my entire basement (six years worth of friends and ex-boyfriends storing and ultimately leaving stuff down there) in a few hours!!! If she hadn't come over I would never have been done in time! Next time I move I will have her do the entire thing.”
