Cover of The Ultimate Guide to Downsizing

The authors of The Ultimate Guide to Downsizing hope to make these moves, which can be overwhelming and emotional for many, a little less daunting. Each chapter provides tools and strategies to help boomers, seniors and children of aging parents implement a successful move, along with real-life anecdotes and motivational quotes. In addition, the appendix is packed full of worksheets, inventories, and checklists to assist readers through each step of the downsizing process.

“So many times we see older adults who would love to make a move but are so overwhelmed by the amount of stuff they own and the process of looking for a new place. They don’t know where to start so they just decide to stay where they are,” says author Ingrid Sullivan. John Sullivan, her husband and co-author, adds, “Whether they intend to move right away or to stay home and ‘age-in-place,’ we urge boomers and seniors to talk to their families and formulate a plan in order to avoid a potential crisis situation in the future.”

The Ultimate Guide to Downsizing is available in paperback for $19.95 or as a Kindle e-book for $12.95 on

In addition to working with their real estate clients, the Sullivans present educational opportunities for older adults and their families through seminars, panel discussions, and speaking engagements. For interviews or more information, please call 817-330-9235 or email
