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:

Lorna Moodie, Director; Dan Carmody, President-Elect; Catherine Winters, Director; Jeff Clark, Immediate Past-President; Andy Spears, President; Marissa Corbo, Secretary-Treasurer; Ann Schmidt, Director; Michael Ponte, Director; Christy Bearse, Vice President; Stephen Ngo, Director; Sandy McAlister, Director; and Rosi Shepard, Director.

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.

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.

Moving Books for Kids of Various Ages

Without a doubt, moving can be quite stressful. In fact, most people fear packing the most because of years of accumulation. Yet, if you are moving with kids, or even if you are not, packing can be the best part. Mainly, it allows you a chance to get organized again. Better still, it allows you to figure out what you do and don’t need. Thereafter, it is likely someone else gets to benefit from the stuff you no longer want. Moreover as you sort you can reflect and that is always rewarding. However, for kids, this can be challenging depending on their age and attachment to the home. So, though there are lots of cool ways to get them focusing on the positive of a move, books can help do the rest.

Hence, White Glove Moving & Storage has come up with a read aloud featuring a number of great books to share with kids. Also, it is a great idea to purchase a book or two and together write how they are feeling in the covers of the books. Then, down the road you can take the books back out and read about their fears or excitement and evaluate how it worked out. Important to mention, should you hire a mover this summer, rest assured at White Glove we are adhering to all CDC protocol and are able to help you get into your new home safely.

Firstly, the Berenstein Bears Moving Day. As a fan of the series, this is an easy book with great images geared to children ten and under. As always, the message is wholesome and describes how change can be difficult yet typically not as bad as projected.

 

Purchase online here.

Next, another moving book geared towards elementary school aged or even toddlers is Tigger’s Moving Day. Of course, we all know and love Winnie the Pooh and all his pals; however, did you know how Tigger chose his tree house? Well, join Anna Valencia Tillery on this reading to see if it’s a good fit for your family.

Purchase this book here.

Another option, try I Like Where I Am. In this book, discover how tough change can be for a six year old boy yet how rewarding it can be too. As a bonus, this one is full of rhythms and great illustrations.

Purchase this book here.

Finally, for our first batch of moving books, this one is for girls or perhaps boys nine to fourteen. Written by Meg Cabot, this is a a witty book.  Most certainly, moving as you get a bit older can be challenging and in this first book of a series Allie Finkle tells it like is. Best part, your child can find a new character to learn and grow with since there are other books to follow.

Purchase the set of 6 books here.

In conclusion, it is likely you have your own questions about moving. Likely, you too are overwhelmed and feeling like you bit off too much as a parent with covid and the like. Yet, as Treasure Coast moving experts, you can count us to make it easier. Perhaps, you need some short term storage while you do some repairs in your new space? We do that.  Or, you want to get rid of a number of items after all. Not to worry, we can help with donation locations too. If you are planning a move, call your trusted community partners at White Glove to be an ongoing resource as you begin the process.

White Glove: BBB Torch Award Winner for Business Ethics

White Glove Moving, Storage & Delivery, agent for Bekins Van Lines, was pleased to accept the 2018 “Large Company” Torch Award for Business Ethics during the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of South East Florida and the Caribbean’s inaugural awards luncheon.  Companies were nominated by peers in the business community that sought to highlight the high standards of leadership and organizational ethics performed by for-profit entities broken down into small, medium and large categories based on the number of full-time employees.

Each of the 75 plus companies nominated submitted information regarding their ethical relationships with customers, employees and vendors which translates into a high level of trust in the communities they serve.  The rigorous review of true character for each business included a deep examination of how they adhere to the six principles of TRUST.   Winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges appointed for their own commitment to high ethical standards.

“Communicate to Differentiate,” rang true to the judges when selecting White Glove Moving, Storage and Delivery of Florida for their winner in the Large Company category with 50+ employees.  In an industry that often gets a bad reputation for rogue movers and price gouging, it was refreshing for White Glove to be recognized for their efforts to go above and beyond when it comes to customer service, communication and compassion during the often stressful time of a move.  The company’s ability to perform great work, reinvest in its employees and contribute to the community; making it an area families want to move to, live in and be proud of are just a few of the reasons this growing business has repeatedly earned an A+ rating with the BBB, Angie’s List and Home Advisor and is proud to be the first Torch Award recipient for South East Florida and the Caribbean.
