Our founder, Jill Duffey Kearney, has been redesigning homes for her family and her friends, for as long as anyone can remember. The daughter of a successful realtor, she has also bought and sold six homes in her adulthood, staging each one as she prepared to move for another time. She loved managing the remodels, but her husband did not. Finally he told her, “why don’t you offer to do this to other people’s homes?” and so she did.
Jill achieved her certification in Real Estate Staging and Redesign, in 2004 and later became a certified senior move manager. Today, her company has moved well over 450 senior clients into beautifully designed retirement cottages and apartments. Senior Moves by Design is comprised of 25 talented individuals who successfully support their clients, by preparing their old homes for sale, all the way through packing, unpacking and decorating their new homes.

On July 1, 2015, Jill was recognized by her peers as one of the industry's leaders and was elected to the Board of NASMM, the National Association of Senior Move Managers.
Jill lives and breathes her job. She offers stimulating seminars at personal care homes to visitors considering a move. “When we talk to prospective residents, we put their minds at ease and show them how we guide them through the moving process. It lowers the hurdle for them to move in. The new resident is happy and so is the senior community. It’s a win-win.”
