ANDOVER, Mass., Oct. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Home Transition Resource, a premier provider of professional move management services in the Greater Boston area, announced today the company has been acquired by WayForth, headquartered in Richmond, VA.
"We are proud to be joining a family of industry leaders that will enable us to offer a thoughtful, integrated, full-service approach to moving services for our clients and referral partners," says Kate Grondin, founder and owner of Home Transition Resource.

In a joint statement, Shealy and Shrock said, "Kate and her organization are a natural fit for our growing team.

They believe in providing clients with the solutions they deserve, and we are confident Home Transition Resource will be powerful stewards of our integrated services in the Northeast."
Grondin, a former medical social worker, brings 10 years of professional move management experience and expertise to WayForth. She is an active two-term member of the Board of Directors for the National Association of Senior Move Managers. Allison Pihl and Kim McMahon, founders of D.C./Maryland's Let's Move, joined WayForth in August and are excited to, in turn, welcome Grondin and Home Transition Resource to the team.
