About Our Team

Our mission is to make your tough transition trouble-free. We take great joy in creating comfort and beauty for the next chapter in your life.

Senior Settlers was established in 2013, and we have steadily expanded services since then. We are constantly looking for ways to add value for our clients and to make their lives better in some way.

We are members of the National Association of Senior and Specialty Move Managers (NASMM) and adhere to their code of ethics. We are also a Bay Area Green Business, are committed to participating in our community through the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce Business, are a Marin County Section on Aging Member, and partner with various other organizations that serve the local senior community.

Our staff meets as a group twice a year and dedicates a full day to improving our services, learning new techniques, and sharing lessons learned. The photo below is from our most recent meeting.
