It’s the third year in a row NexSeason Transitions has been recognized as one of the area’s best resources for aging adults. The Alpharetta company was voted a Best of North Atlanta Senior Information Service winner in 2018 and 2019.
Sherri Selman and Lisa Wilson
co-founded NexSeason Transitions, which serves the metro Atlanta area, in 2017. There’s is a partnership that marries Wilson’s years of real estate expertise with Selman’s real-life planning and caregiving experience. NexSeason Transitions aims to be a turnkey solution for senior home transitions, helping families map out life for their loved ones after a health crisis forces them to vacate their home. The company counsels families through the process of setting up in-home health care for loved ones, moving family members to assisted living facilities and liquidating assets.
NexSeason Transitions works with over 80 vetted vendors to be a one-stop shop, providing families all the services they need through the transition.
“We put together a roadmap for them and we manage that whole process for the families,” Selman said. “We’re a company that goes that extra mile, meeting and listening to the particular needs of our client. We look at the entire picture of what needs to be done and handle every step.”
Selman dealt firsthand with that sudden upheaval in 2014 when her husband was completely disabled from a stroke. A few months later, her father suffered a debilitating stroke in her home, and she had to find him a full-time caregiver in Alpharetta while liquidating her parents’ longtime Missouri home and relocating her elderly mother to Arizona to be closer to relatives there.
Meanwhile, Wilson is a senior real estate specialist of nearly two decades who has sold more than 500 homes in the Atlanta market. Upon her father’s sudden death, she had the responsibility of relocating her mother from Florida to Georgia.
Winning the One to Watch Award was significant, Selman said.
“It’s very gratifying because what that shows us is that we’ve been recognized as a leader in the community,” Selman said. “And it just really confirms that what we’re doing is a much-needed service to help families when those rough times hit.”
