It is that time of year again, and fall is here. For many, fall means an arrival of an extensive to-do list. That list typically includes cleaning out gutters, raking leaves, putting up the storm windows, taking care of lingering repairs that are now time-sensitive because of impending holiday visitors, checking heating systems, weatherproofing… or researching, hiring and coordinating professionals to complete the to-do list.
However, Knollwood residents can just enjoy the change of season – watching the leaves change in Rock Creek Park, visiting family, helping grandkids carve pumpkins, attending the Army/Navy game – all without a single thought being given to all the chores that go along with fall.
Fall is usually the season that new residents begin to really see the difference of maintenance-free life at Knollwood. When you make Knollwood your home, the things you used to worry about, the responsibilities and the to-do before winter arrives lists have been delegated – efficiently and effectively. Knollwood’s dedicated maintenance staff has already made those lists and delegated those tasks to the maintenance and groundskeeping teams.
Letting others do the maintenance is one of the primary reasons that many of our residents move here. There’s a peace of mind that comes with knowing that if you notice a repair that needs to be made, one phone call is all it takes for it to be done. You don’t have to vet contractors or pay out of pocket. Knollwood handles it. This allows you more time to enjoy the things you want to enjoy, without any guilt or worry that you should be spending your time on maintenance.
More time for hobbies, relaxation, travel and anything that has been put off until retirement is the reason that people join our community. Do you really want to rake all the leaves again this year? Do you want to spend time making sure your snow blower and shovel are ready for the season? Chances are that the answer is no. You’d rather be volunteering, writing a book, learning a new skill or simply enjoying the presence of family and friends. No one truly understands the value of spending all the time you can with your family more than men and women accustomed to being overseas – especially around the holidays.
Although you will always carry the military with you, it is time to relax and finally make that full transition and let dedicated professionals take care of the work. Let the team at Knollwood deal with the repairs, winterization, snow clearing, leaf cleanup and anything else that needs to be completed. Our team is just a phone call away. If maintenance-free living sounds right for you, contact us and let’s get started, so you don’t need to rake those falling leaves.
