NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Lantern Hill, a distinctive Erickson Living developed and managed senior living community in New Providence, New Jersey, recently hired Allie Krug as the community's Personal Moving Consultant.

Krug works one-on-one with future residents of Lantern Hill to deliver personalized assistance with everything from selecting a real estate professional to house staging, donating items, packing, and laying out furniture in their new apartment home at Lantern Hill.

"Many people need to sell their home before moving to Lantern Hill, so I get to understand their level of knowledge and readiness and help to accelerate their move sooner rather than later because, ultimately, that's to their benefit. The sooner they're living at Lantern Hill, socializing and minimizing the stress of maintaining a home can ultimately positively impact their health and longevity," says Krug, who has a background in sales, marketing, and event planning. A resident of Wall, NJ, she has a bachelor's degree from New York University.

Her services are available and complimentary to anyone on Lantern Hill's priority list. And most importantly, they are designed to make residents' move to campus easier.

"The real estate agents I recommend are trusted partners of ours. There is no pressure to use one specific real estate agent or another. It's at the residents' discretion. Having options puts some people at ease, and having at least two options helps them feel in control of the situation. I am here for the long term to help them through the process should questions arise," says Krug.

Krug has been busy in her new job. Lantern Hill recently opened its sixth resident building, Bell Pavilion, and it’s filling up quickly. The 168-apartment, five-story building features a restaurant, bar, fitness center, courtyard, bocce courts, community gardens, and underground parking.
