Meet Some of 2021’s Newest Caring Transitions Franchisees

The first quarter of 2021 saw growth in the footprint of the Caring Transitions network in Minnesota, Massachusetts, Arkansas, California, Texas, New York and Virginia.  Caring Transitions has proven to be a pandemic resistant franchise model as it is not only growing its number of locations during this challenging time, but it is also growing sales revenue through multiple revenue streams.  Because Caring Transitions is a home-based business it has a low total initial investment and can be launched quickly.  Many new owners have clients and jobs lined up before they complete their initial training!

We are excited to build Caring Transitions – Twin Cities East, from right here in our hometown,” Mark said.

Mark & Tara Piatt, Caring Transitions of Jonesboro

“When my stepfather passed away, my mom was left with more stuff than she could handle alone. I went to visit her in Cincinnati over the summer – and we were still going through his things – and that’s when I found Caring Transitions. First I saw four ads for their online auctions and, as I did my research, I realized that the end-to-end solution Caring Transitions can offer to clients was something my community could use and I’d enjoy. Caring Transitions allows us to make a real difference for people here in the Jonesboro area,” Mark said.

Jared & Victoria Erfle, Caring Transitions of Santa Clarita

“I sold a home to a gentleman in 2007 and, last year, he called me back to sell that same home again. The house sold in one day, but moving was a seven-month process. We included a lot of larger furniture items in the sale, but he was selling most of his smaller items himself on eBay. When I came across Caring Transitions and they took over the process, it became a seamless operation. That experience truly taught me the value of what Caring Transitions can do and, having helped many families through challenges as a real estate broker, Victoria and I saw an opportunity to serve my community in a new way,” Jared said.ng Transitions of Santa Clarita
