What are Thoughtful Moves?

Moves are never easy, and some moves can feel like a sad end. Real T Simplistic believes every move must be thoughtful, where the home, personal belongings, and clients are treated with care and respect. Every item holds meaning, every home evokes cherished memories, and every client has emotions related to letting go, moving forward, and finding happiness in a new place. We help every client find that happiness.

Real T Simplistic: How Real Estate Knowledge Moves Our Processes

Every company has a story, and every name pulls from a unique inspiration. The name Real T Simplistic emphasizes Kristyn and Nicole’s vast expertise in the real estate industry and integrates the belief that moving should be simple. 

Thoughtful moves for senior clients often involve real estate transactions by selling a current home and transitioning to a new home. The Real T Simplistic team understands that one of the greatest assets is a home, and this asset often helps cover the cost of a new house or to allocate for other needs.

Real T works one-on-one to help get the best price possible for their homes. Kristyn and Nicole collaborate with every client to compassionately manage the sale of a current home, helping them stage each room, pack up every belonging, and transition to their new place.

Nicole Hyman

Realtor, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, Certified Senior and Specialty Move Manager

After graduating college and navigating the world of parenthood with two active children, my background in social work left me yearning for a new adventure. That's when I decided to become a Realtor(r), merging my passion for art and architecture with my desire to help others.

However, I soon realized that simply facilitating real estate transactions wasn't enough to satisfy my desire to make a meaningful difference in people's lives. That's where my partnership with Kristyn came into play, and together, we embarked on this new journey.

Now, as a Certified Senior and Specialty Move Manager, I'm thrilled to be in a position where I can truly make a positive impact on my clients' lives. Guiding you through the emotional rollercoaster of downsizing and moving is not just a job to me—it's a heartfelt commitment. And trust me, while the process may be emotional, we'll infuse plenty of fun along the way!

 

 

P.S. I hate spreadsheets!

With a background in banking, I gained valuable financial and marketing expertise that paved the way for my successful journey in real estate. It was rewarding to be recognized as a Real Estate All-Star by Detroit Hour magazine and ranked in the Top 5% of Realtors® nationwide, several years in a row.

My transition to move management was driven by a genuine desire to better serve seniors and other specialized clients. Working closely with seniors has brought me countless fulfilling experiences that continue to inspire me every day.

Outside of work, you'll find me enjoying the beauty of Northern Michigan with my family and our three dogs (yes, I said three.) I'm excited about the opportunity to meet and work with you!

PS: I've got a spreadsheet for everything!
