Workshop Review: Helping Your Clients Move

On Friday 17th September, we held our Brick & Wonder workshop on “Helping Your Clients Move”.

There’s a reason people associate moving house with very high levels of stress: it is stressful. 

Many Brick & Wonder members, such as real estate brokers, interior designers and architects function as trusted advisors to their clients, with (the good) relationships lasting years and even decades. 

So, when a client is going through this emotionally fraught and physically difficult life-change, how can their trusted advisors be there for them in a supportive role? Which moving-adjacent needs might they have, like art handling, storage and professional organizing?

For this Workshop, two Brick & Wonder members shared their combined decades of experience helping clients prepare for and manage moving house as painlessly as possible.
