Smooth Transitions was started in Louisville, Kentucky in 1995 and is now in more than 65 communities nationwide. Maureen Fraser is the owner and operator of Smooth Transitions Florida East Coast
Maureen brings to Smooth Transitions Florida East Coast a wealth of experience from the worlds of Real Estate Development and New Home Construction, with an emphasis on Active Adult Residential Development. Maureen’s expertise encompasses boutique and large master-planned condominium, apartment and mixed-use developments/projects, both ground-up new construction and conversions. Over the past 30 years she has successfully participated in and managed the design, sales and build out of more than a dozen communities in New England, as well as hundreds of homes in New England, Palm Beach and Martin County, Florida. Although her management responsibilities included market research, design development and project positioning, her favorite part of the process has always been client interactions – offering expert guidance with floor plan selection and customization, including universal design requirements and customization of existing plans, and helping her clients throughout the process to ensure a happy and successful personal move into their new residence and community. Maureen started Smooth Transitions Florida East Coast to assist older persons and their families cope with the need to downsize their possessions and manage the myriad details associated with moving from their traditional family home to a smaller home, apartment or retirement community. Maureen is a past member of the National Association of Home Builder’s and the Builder’s Association of Greater Boston, and has been awarded their prestigious PRISM AWARD multiple times for excellence in the field. She is a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM), the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). She holds the NAHB’s “CAPS” designation and is a Certified Aging In Place Specialist and the NAR’s “SRES” designation and is a Senior Real Estate Specialist.
As a former administrator for the Town of Palm Beach, Kathleen was responsible for the smooth running and efficient operations of the Town’s Finance and Building Departments. From payroll and accounts receivable to residential and commercial permitting, Kathleen honed her organizational abilities and time management skills – as well as her fine attention to detail in these dual positions! Although she enjoyed her many years of service with the Town, she chose to make the move north with her family over twenty years ago, to the beautiful Treasure Coast of Florida. Upon settling in Palm City, Kathleen took on a new role with passion – working with and caring for Seniors and elderly persons desiring to live in their own homes and receive the expert help and assistance she could offer to help them do so. When her sister Maureen relocated to Florida from the Boston, MA area and opened a Smooth Transitions move management business, she knew this was the perfect match for her unique skill sets – and their team was founded!
