Placefinder Program

You have a vision for your retirement. All you need now is the right location.

You’ve decided to move for retirement.

You’ve spent countless hours online trying to figure out where. Maybe you’ve even visited a few prospective locations. But your search keeps coming up empty, and you’re starting to wonder if you’ll ever find your perfect retirement location. On top of that, you worry about draining your retirement savings looking for the right location or – worse yet – moving to the wrong one!

I went through the same frustrations searching for my perfect retirement location. Except that I ended up getting stuck for several years in a place that could not have been a worse fit for the life I envisioned.

I knew I had to do something to prevent others from making the same costly mistake.


About the PlaceFinder Program

So, I created a foolproof system to help retirees (and almost retirees) like you cut through all the noise to find the perfect location to retire, while keeping your nest egg intact!

  • You’re annoyed and confused by all the conflicting information online.
  • You’re tired of friends and family giving you unsolicited advice.
  • You feel discouraged by the lack of progress you’re making with your search.
  • You wish there was an easier, more reliable way to figure out where to move.
  • You’re not sure you’re going to find your perfect location to retire.

You feel as if you’re at a crossroads. Either you can stay where you are and compromise your vision for retirement, or you can risk spending your hard-earned savings on a move that you may – or may not – end up regretting.

The PlaceFinder Program includes the following 1:1 consulting/coaching sessions:

What Clients are Saying

Margaret has a tremendous system in place to help you find your dream location. Based on our wants, she found places we would never have thought of. The way she presents the finished package makes it so easy to go deeper into the information. And she's delightful to work with! My only regret is not finding Margaret earlier. She would have saved us so much money, time and energy. I highly recommend Your Place Finder if you're thinking of relocating. You won't be disappointed!

- Susan Weber and Matthew Schwartz

I recommend Margaret to anyone that is ready to make a move and would like some help finding a suitable new place to live. I love that Margaret did the research for me! I appreciate that she researches and identifies places to live customized to the client's needs and that she was willing to dig deeper on other things as we went along.

Margaret is genuinely committed to your moving journey. She has a wealth of great questions and is a sincere listener. She is very thorough at researching your options and provides you with all the answers you need to be comfortable with your decision to move. You will get more than what you paid for with Margaret!

-Birgit Schulz, Transitions Coach

"It feels like home in this place and in this city. The people here are friendly and welcoming. I have to say that I haven’t missed Houston one day, not one... I've had daydreams about this since I was a teenager. I just didn’t know where or when that would be."

-Angela and Jim Kanuth

“I recommend Margaret’s program to anyone who feels overwhelmed with trying to figure out where to relocate. Margaret is very easy to talk to and asks good questions that made me consider different criteria than I may have considered otherwise.”

-Stacie Meyer, Money Mindset Coach

"I was floundering around knowing that I wanted to move, but not knowing where to start. Margaret helped me crystallize my priorities and give me the tools to find my happy place. Thank you, Margaret!”

-Beth Nelson, Technical Writer

"Margaret helped me think through what I really want in my community and make the best the decision for the kind of life I want to lead. Without this process, I probably would have just moved to the first place that seemed like kind of a fit. Highly recommended!!"
