HSF Affiliates LLC Joins Forces with World Class Coaches to Support Children During Family Moves

Former All Pro football player Johnnie Johnson directs the program,
which tackles challenges for moving families; program teams certified
real estate pros and service-provider network to safeguard all members
of relocating families

IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GoodToKnow–HSF Affiliates LLC, which operates real estate brokerage networks
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Prudential Real Estate and Real Living
Real Estate, has teamed up with San Jose, CA-based World Class Coaches
and its Moving Families Initiative® to help ensure children receive
proper support when their families relocate.

World Class Coaches facilitates the Moving Families Initiative, an
international plan focused on serving, protecting and meeting the needs
of families relocating with children ages 19 and younger. HSF
Affiliates, through its Home ConnectionsSM real estate
services platform, will provide parents a one-stop access point for the
plan’s legion of service providers, programs and services. In addition,
agents from HSF Affiliates’ brokerage networks will join more than 3,100
other real estate professionals already serving transitioning families
coast to coast in conjunction with Moving Families Initiative.

“Moving is difficult for anyone but especially for children,” said
Johnnie Johnson, former All Pro football player and CEO of World Class
Coaches. “Moving Families Initiative connects moving families with
certified agents to take a proactive approach on the physical and
emotional strain kids face when changing neighborhoods and schools.”

Johnson gained sensitivity to the rigors of moving during his career in
the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks. “Annually more
than 10 million children 19 years old and younger move throughout the
U.S., according to U.S. Census Mobility Report data,” Johnson said.
“Within five years, it’s part of our aim with the Moving Families
Initiative to serve and provide protection for 10 million children
throughout the country who annually change schools, neighborhoods and
friends as a result of moving. In 10 years, our goal is to assist 20
million children worldwide.”

Moving Families Initiative provides a network of Preferred Real Estate
AgentsTM who are trained in the care and handling of
families’ needs during transition. To engage with the program, people
simply access the new Moving Families Initiative Connectivity PlatformTM,
or call (866) 224-8895, prior to the execution of their home rental,
sale or purchase agreement. Home Connections will then join them with a
Preferred Real Estate Agent of the families’ choice.

These advisors will help families meet their real estate needs and
achieve the program’s core goals:

  • Assist kids with the physical and emotional challenges of moving;
  • Provide protection to the entire family during the transition;
  • Encourage and assist kids to engage in extracurricular activities of
    their choice;
  • Execute a Moving Families Initiative Written Game Plan that maps out a
    successful transition for all family members.

Agents working with transitioning families make complete assessments of
members’ needs and help families connect with key people, schools,
agencies and service providers in their new neighborhoods through World
Class Coaches’ Consumer and Personal Provider NetworksTM.
This includes coaches, scout leaders, instructors and others who will be
waiting to support the kids in the days, weeks and months following
their arrival. Agents provide these services at no cost beyond the
normal and customary fees charged by their brokerage for real estate

Johnson said it’s vital that kids choose an extracurricular activity in
their new neighborhood. “We’re not concerned about which one as long as
they participate in one of their choosing,” he explained. “It could be
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, playing in the band, singing, dancing, youth
sports. Extracurricular activities teach young people certain values,
life skills and character traits that may be difficult to learn
elsewhere. Even the world’s greatest parents can use the help that these
activities provide.”

Gino Blefari, CEO of HSF Affiliates, applauded Moving Families
Initiative for fulfilling an essential need. “The Moving Families
Initiative is a terrific plan for all families with kids who need to
move or relocate,” he said. “We support the plan because it places
families first and ensures all family members’ needs are met through the
move and beyond. This holistic approach to relocation is not only smart,
but it’s also the right thing to do.”
