May is National Moving Month

May is such a wonderful time of the year. Here, in Florida, kids graduate from school and/or begin to prepare for summer break. Nationally, we celebrate all Moms the 2nd Sunday of the month. In fact, it is a theme White Glove Moving fully embraces and had fun throughout the Treasure Coast highlighting moms during our presentations leading up to the holiday. This included tying in moms of the animal kingdom, humankind, and moving details for our Palm City Chamber and St. Lucie Realtor events. In Martin County, the realtors association allowed White Glove to host Market Watch and we tied in fun facts about Mother’s Day along with moving and storage; each volunteer always takes home a prize. Then, in Stuart for the Future of Aviation panel hosted by the Stuart Chamber of Commerce, White Glove Moving was able to incorporate some Fact and Fiction fun about the companies each panelist represented and blended those details into moving and storage while also giving away some worthwhile Mother’s Day inspired gifts. Better yet, June 28th, we will be one of the sponsors for the Motherhood Exhibit captured by Jolee Art & Photography; click to learn more. Additionally, at the end of each May, we pay homage to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms during Memorial Day. It is a busy month, full of bright and happy colors; maybe that is the reason it is also considered national moving month…because people are out and about making plans and embracing change.

Throughout much of the nation, as May brings the sunshine, house sales tick up. Whereas in Florida the heat and humidity is what increases. Though historically we have seen a slow down, post covid we notice that the demand for moving and storage in the Treasure Coast has stabled during the summer months. In fact, with more people staying in their homes remodeling is on the rise. Even with the items being shifted into garages, spare rooms, or into our climate controlled facility, having professional movers is a must. The items are all properly protected and moved in mere hours, it is worthwhile and cost effective. As always, no matter how big or far your moving needs may be; it is always a free estimate. 772-778-4750

Yet, as the demand for moving services rise for many during the summer months, so does the ability to prey on unsuspecting folks by rogue and predatory fraudulent moving brokers. Recently, a situation occurred with a local realtor in the Treasure Coast to a customer of hers who booked online with the cheapest mover she could find versus taking the recommendation of her agent to use a reputable and real moving company. Interestingly enough, the bid for us to move her versus what the rogue movers quoted was just $400 difference yet in the end, with their scare tactics and ransom demands, she paid more than $2k more…here’s an impromptu Q&A the realtor asked us to help with after the horrific experience was over for her client.

RPAC Fundraiser was a Success!

Since 1969, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is clear: voluntary contributions made by REALTORS® are used to help elect candidates who understand and support their interests. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of the importance of the political process. The REALTORS® Political Action Committee and other political fundraising are the keys to protecting and promoting the real estate industry.

In August of 2023, the Martin County Realtors of the Tresure Coast hosted their annual membership appreciation and RPAC fundraiser at the esteemed Elliott Museum in Stuart. With multiple silent and live auction items to bid on, the well-attended event helped to bring in over $5k for RPAC.

As a friendly competition, the association added an award for the affiliate company and real estate office that was able to bring in the most dollars based on their donations. With over $500 raised from the donation of a smoothie truck party and designer hurricane candle holders, White Glove Moving & Storage was thrilled to be given the trophy for the affiliate category.

As a moving and storage company, realtors are referral partners that we value and the importance of real estate as an industry is vital to the Treasure Coast. At White Glove, we are pleased to support the productiveness of real estate. It is an honor to be recognized as a supporter of RPAC and we look forward many more years of participation.

Exciting Summertime Happenings!

Since 2013, White Glove Moving & Storage has been active with the Realtors Association of Broward, the Palm Beaches and St. Lucie County. As a give back, this association helps provide money for closing costs for families who meet the eligibility requirements within St. Lucie County.  In partnership with other groups, the Foundation addresses local housing opportunities, believing homeownership should be attainable for all. With the support of our Realtor® members and Affiliates, our Realtor® Association works in conjunction with the Foundation to plan fundraising events, seek monetary gifts from local businesses, and sponsor education classes about the role and benefits that our Foundation brings to housing in St. Lucie County. This year, we hosted a global themed tradeshow and not only did we raise nearly $5k for the cause, White Glove Moving won the best themed table representing Mexico.

In addition to being a proud local, American company; White Glove has been working hard to infuse fun facts about America with the services our company specializes in for the past 20 years in presentations. This past Stuart Chamber luncheon, we did just that with sparkly patriotic centerpieces. The featured speaker for the event was chief CBS-12 meteorologist, Michael Ehrenberg, with a storm projection for the 2022 hurricane season.

The Martin County Realtors of the Treasure Coast hosted their annual installation and awards luncheon at Monarch Country Club. With a sold-out crowd, the room was transformed into a patriotic display full of networking and applause for affiliates and realtor members alike. Since 2020 was such an unusual year, the membership agreed to renew the positions of the board. Hence, here is the board for 2021-2022:

There were many winners that day with Jeff Clark being awarded Realtor of the Year, Bill Dean with In the Shade as Affiliate of the Year, Arrow Title as Affiliate Company of the Year and Anna Valencia Tillery with White Glove Moving the 2021 Standard of Excellence Award. When presented with the recognition, it was written that Anna’s creation of the Treasure Coast Premier Women’s Network, active role with the Women’s Council of Realtors Stuart-Martin and serving as the affiliate committee chairperson in a creative and fun way that is always engaging to the membership prompted the board to create an all new award just for her; what an honor! Yet, it all reality, it’s incredibly rewarding to serve in this active realtors association and be given the opportunity to introduce our services, as White Glove Moving & Storage, to the community as a whole. Thank you Martin County Realtors for this recognition and ongoing support.

Back to School Drives

Each year, White Glove Moving & Storage takes pride in our ability to help other causes. Though the scope is always a bit different from group to group, during the summer months we know causes are in need of boxes to serve as vessels for collections. Throughout the Treasure Coast, students get to enjoy a fast paced summer and come early August it is time to get back to class. This year, our team of moving pros is excited to help out two great organizations with their Back to School drives.

Since 2015, White Glove has been teaming up with La Porte Farms in Sebastian, FL. Always hosting fun events and summer camps for the kids, La Porte Farms knows how to engage families with their petting farm, good food and live presentations. Each year, they do a big give away for the kids just before school starts and helps to equip the children with necessities ranging from bookbags to paper and pencils. Of course, Laura Laporte is only able to do so much on her own and relies heavily on the help of business partners throughout the county to host a White Glove box and commit to filling it up.  Interested in helping the kids in the north part of Indian River County? Then feel free to commit and do try to save the date for Saturday, July 31st for all the festivities full of families, vendors and great giveaways for all the kids who attend.

Next, White Glove was happy to team up with the Gifford Youth Achievement Center again for their back to school drive. Box hosts are requested now through the first week of August. With the help of many sponsors already, they have a nice head start but there is much more to gather. Including:

Pens, colored pencils, scissors, glue, rulers, sanitizer, tissue, paper, notebooks, backpacks, calculators, index cards, folders, markers, and more.

Save the date for the big giveaway on Saturday, Aug. 7th. The event will be done as a drive through and the satisfaction is seeing the joy on the kids faces.

During the 99th Annual Business Awards celebration, the White Glove Moving & Storage team was thrilled to learn that Director of Marketing, Anna Valencia Tillery was one of the recipients for the 2020 Jack Chestnut Ambassador of the Year award. Having been a chamber member since first moving to Indian River County in 2004, Anna has been an active chamber member.

Since 2012, Mrs. Valencia Tillery has been a chamber ambassador and works diligently to recruit new members while also teaching them the ins and outs of the organization.

During 2020, the chamber began launching virtual events in May and Anna was quick to help sponsor and kick off the mixer by incorporating some fun and games. Additionally, the White Glove team made it a point to consistently attend the events each month and sponsored the big December breakfast that offered members the chance to attend in person once again.

Other recipients of this prestigious award were Rebecca Moon, Rodan & Fields and Paul Lytle, Fully Promoted as other ambassadors recognized for their efforts in participation and recruitment despite the pandemic. Of course, special recognition to the chamber’s director, Dori Stone and staff for working hard to help execute virtual and in person events during such sensitive times.

“Our local chamber is a wonderful organization that values businesses and non-profits aligning in a positive environment that fosters relation building and professional engagement. I love this group and know you get out of it, what you put in it. It’s a true honor to be recognized for my dedication to this chamber, its members and overall mission.” ~Anna Valencia Tillery
