Our Story

Meet Anna

Anna Novak first saw the need for enhanced services for empty nesters and seniors in her real estate business.  “I realized I was spending more time helping my clients vacate their homes than the actual process of selling them.”   

In 2019, Anna retooled her business to exclusively focus on providing Downsizing Coordination.  Simply Downsized LLC is licensed and insured to offer move management,  real estate consulting, hands-on help and vetted referrals that fills the need for professional transition management in the Washington DC area. 

Anna specializes in providing compassionate and capable guidance to clients with limiting health or lifestyle factors and/or lack of local support. She can also act as a project manager for out-of-town clients or decision makers.  “Our clients are visibly relieved when they realize we can manage the whole thing.  It’s a huge weight off their shoulders.”
