It is about getting all the information you need from one source to help you transition into the next stage of your life. Where do you see yourself? You may have just become an empty nester looking for your new forever home. You may want to travel and want something easy and maintenance free while you are away. You may need something with a grannie suite for a parent or need help getting them into an assisted living community. You may be interested in investing for retirement.
I am a transition specialist and I can help you by giving you information on all of your available options so you can find the place that is just right for you.
It is important to start thinking about your future housing needs. Could you see yourself in a condo or apartment offering amenities, or perhaps a mobile/modular home where you can meet some new friends? Maybe you’d like a small house on a quiet street in the summer and vacation home through the winter. What could be essential in your home as you move forward? Take the following into consideration:
Aging in place is being able to continue living in your own home, safely and independently, as you grow older and your needs change.
Whether you are looking to find a suitable home or you are interested in building one, you will need to choose the perfect floorplan with the features that make it possible for you to live the lifestyle of your choice throughout your golden years taking into account your present and future needs.
Common floorplan concepts for retirement living in your home are – single storey living, limiting steps, open floor plans and wider doorways and hallways. It will be important to be able to add features such as non-slip surfaces, accommodating showers, easy access shelving/storage to name a few. You may want some lifestyle features as well such as a gourmet kitchen, lavish outdoor area or in-home theatre.
I can help you find a home that will incorporate features for aging in place so you can be in a comfortable, stylish home you love living in.
Where do you start? There are so many beautiful spots to be had in breathtaking Ontario.

Thank you Carla MacGregor for making this process nice and easy and stress free. You have been very professional to deal with and we are grateful for your hard work and expertise. It is bitter sweet as we have made many happy memories with our friends and family over the years and we will miss this home immensely. We are excited for our new adventures, it is time to move on and let our new chapters begin! Thank you again Carla, you are a wonderful person to deal with and if any of our family or friends are ever looking for an agent, we will be sure to send them your way.
Carla is our ‘gal’ We were moving from Fonthill, Ont. Hoping to look in the Windsor area. But we were downsizing and prices were still up too high for our budget! We chatted on the phone and came out to meet her and tour Sarnia area to see if it could be fit! Bingo, first meet up! We found a home, , Carla drove us all around Sarnia and we fell in love with Sarnia, the trails for running and dog walks. The river and lake and beaches! Everything mostly within 7 km of the prospective home! Made an offer from home! Carla helped us more than our listing agent in Fonthill. Upon arrival to our new home Carla arranged our home to be cleaned. Gifts and fresh snacks and drinks for arrival. After a few days she again drove us to a different area to introduce more of Sarnia….stores, restaurants… I cannot say enough about this lady! We’ve moved many times and honestly she is the best realtor we’ve ever had to work with. Did not miss a step!! Still helping with information when we ask her! Certainly she is one of Sarnia’s best supporters and loves her career! Thank you Carla from the bottom of our hearts!
Carla MacGregor, Sarnia Lambton is fortunate to have an incredible professional like yourself. Keep up the great work!
Carla, you are amazing! You (and Rick) went above and beyond to make this a smooth and efficient process, and as as low stress as possible! Not only are you great at your job, a people person, smart and capable, a wonderful mother and wife who finds time for family and friends, but I am now also proud to call you MY FRIEND!
Helping and guiding you every step of the way is what I do.
