Goodman Brings Caring Transitions to Crossville

Caring Transitions is the professional, full-service solution for life’s transitions, including senior moves, downsizing and online estate sales.

CROSSVILLE – When Louise Goodman went to visit her mother eight years ago, what started as a month-long visit quickly turned into a nightmare. When her mother passed away suddenly, not only was Goodman faced with the unexpected task of managing her estate, but she was also stuck in a gated senior-living community without the permissions for visitors or resources to help her clear out her mother’s home. 

“After dealing with the nightmare almost entirely on my own, I just couldn’t wait to put the whole process behind me. I needed time to grieve the loss of my mom and, instead, I spent weeks trying to get people in and out of a gated community,” Goodman said. “When it was all over, I realized that there had to be a better way, which is when I found Caring Transitions.”

When Goodman decided to come out of retirement earlier this year, she decided bringing Caring Transitions to her Tennessee town would provide a much-needed resource for her region and give her an opportunity to use her experience to make a difference for other families. 

Caring Transitions is the professional choice for moving, downsizing, clearing an estate and hosting estate sales.

In addition to her training through Caring Transitions, Goodman has a background in broadcasting and more than 30 years of experience as a real estate broker, which gives her a unique perspective. She and her husband, Carl, have lived in Tennessee for the last 15 years.
