YOUR TRANSITION PARTNER MISSION STATEMENT
The Your Transition Partner (YTP) Model exists to save seniors and their families time, stress, and money when buying/selling real estate by creating and executing a custom, concierge plan to meet each client’s housing needs, timeline, and financial goals.
All moves are stressful. The senior move is one of the hardest things you will ever do. When you have someone to guide, support, and partner with you during this significant life transition, it’s more likely you’ll achieve your financial, timing, and housing goals with less stress and more success.
Our clients and their families:
- Feel heard, honored, respected, supported
- Feel valued and cared for during a critical life transition
- Have access to the best information and resources available in their community
- Understand that while there’s been loss in this transition, there’s promise in it and are able to see and feel excited about new possibilities
Meet Cathi Coridan, Your Transition Partner
As a second generation REALTOR®, my work is about creating connected relationships and building partnerships to help people, especially seniors, to successfully navigate one of life’s biggest transitions in the Dallas Suburbs. I also host a Facebook referral network for senior-focused agents across the US, with an emphasis on Metro Dallas, the Washington, DC Metro area, Central Ohio and Southern New England.
I love my Real Estate life on both the sellers’ and the buyers’ sides. My Your Transition Partner model provides the mindset, communication, structure and partnership strategies that help my clients sell and buy real estate with “less stress & more success.” My commitment to personalized service and client advocacy is complete – down to the smallest detail – whether the property is listed for $125,000 or $1,250,000.
Being affiliated with Keller Williams at KW Dallas Metro North means that I have support from the best, with access to state of the art resources & technology of the #1 Real Estate Company in the US. AND, I have over 800 fellow agents in the KW GO Network across the Dallas Metroplex, surrounding Texas communities and beyond.
My Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation from the National Association of Realtors plus my partnerships with senior-focused community organizations across the Dallas Metroplex, focusing on South Denton County to make the complex process of selling, buying and moving much easier. My prior-career experiences in human services programs and professional coaching skills uniquely equip me to meet the buying and selling needs of the diverse “forever young” demographic.
Gary Keller says that the people you surround yourself with matter – the people in the service organizations in my communities are my heroes!
Community Engagement: I started out by saying that my life’s work is about connected relationships and coming from contribution is one of my core values, so community service that focuses on the communities I work in is very important to me. Shortly after moving from Alexandria, VA to the Dallas area, I joined the Lewisville and Flower Mound Chambers of Commerce, and several senior-focused business groups. While in DC, sponsored and served on the steering committee of the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce’s Senior Focused Business Network; sponsored Senior Services of Alexandria’s Annual Gala (2019-2021), Senior Law Day and Oktoberfest (2018-2021) and the Aging Matters Radio Program on WERA in Arlington, VA (2019-2021).
Professional Home Staging Services
Remember: you only get one chance to make a good first impression.
Your goal: to sell your home quickly and for the most money.
My goal as your REALTOR®: to help you achieve your goal by presenting your home to sell fast AND for top dollar! As a certified Home Stager, I offer extra guidance and tools to help you do that!
Home staging is the visual strategy that sells your home for the highest price in the shortest amount of time, which is why I work with my staging partner to offer light staging as part of my marketing package.
Your Transition Partner Coaching for Agents Who Work with Seniors and for Adult Children of Aging Parents
SENIORS DESERVE THE BEST! Senior transitions are NOT easy. Even before the first box is packed, there are many moving parts. Emotions run high. Health and safety issues can be present. Family members have varied perspectives. AND, there’s ALL THAT STUFF.
As a Certified Professional Coach, I work with Realtors® who want to excel while serving people over 60 who are making significant life transitions, planned and unplanned, and their families, so that they trust you as their partner in their life transition.
If you are an agent helping with downsizing a senior’s family home, supporting their transition to assisted living or facilitating a move to be near family, my Your Transition Partner (YTP) Model provides you with the perspective, tools and resource to become an (or THE!) agent of choice for working with seniors in your community.
Plus, I coach adult children of aging parents who want support in helping their parents make good, healthy and safe decisions about where and how they live.
As a Realtor®, I have supported dozens of seniors and their families as they have packed and moved someplace smaller, warmer, less expensive, closer to the kids or to access supportive services. My husband and I have helped both sets of parents move from and clean out their long time family homes. Part of my success as a Senior Real Estate Specialist was driven by my coaching and project coordination in the “Your Transition Partner” model.
One of the best parts of my coaching work is that it allows me to work with Realtors and Adult Children from different areas of the country via Zoom and other distance learning platforms.
My 40+ years of experience in human services and behavioral health, my Coach Training Alliance Certification, and my commitment to serving seniors with excellence combine to enable me to support my clients as they make their personal or family life transitions with “less stress and more success.
The Can Do Chronicles I am a strong believer in the power of stories because they open us up to understanding life, its mystery and its lessons more dynamically. The Can Do Chronicles recounts my changed heart and life following a series of challenging life events that include my husband’s job loss, a long distance move, a hip replacement and six months of chemo. Through the struggle, I discovered grace, gratitude and hope enough that I wanted to share in this book. Most of these events happened just over 10 years ago, yet the my Can Do attitude has endured through today.
Writing this book required me to own CAN DO fully, deeply and without hesitation. I believe that I am called to share my story. My hope is that people who read my story and learn about how I was able to knock that well-worn chip off my shoulder will make a connection and find inspiration to focus their lives on what they CAN DO. I want as many people as possible to discover the energy, joy and hope that an attitude of gratitude can bring in a world that is filled with struggles, fears and way too much CAN’T DO!
