Tips on Finding Specialists In Your Area

It’s not easy moving to a new area, especially one that you aren’t familiar with. You may have done an excellent job of researching your new surroundings, but browsing your new neighborhood online is not quite the same as actually being there. With COVID-19 proving to be more of a hinderence, moving into a new home has probably been taken from a potentially great experience, to an utterly dismal one.


But you can turn the tide on this. Getting to know the area in which you now reside can still be achieved quickly, and getting settled into your new place doesn’t have to be hampered by the Coronavirus pandemic. There are a plethora of specialists around you that can help you on your first steps on this next path in your life. From roof repair to storage units, here are some tips on finding specialists in your area that will ensure that your living experience in your new home will be the best experience after all.

Realty Specialists

The natural first step in moving into a new home is actually finding a place to move into. It’s a rarity that anyone should have to pack up all of their belongings and head straight out into the unknown, and so the process of finding, buying/renting, selling (if you’re a homeowner), and transporting into a new property is generally a long task.

But it doesn’t always have to be that way. There are realty companies who can streamline this whole process and ensure that you move into a high quality build. The top of the list of these is Venterra Realty. Now, you could head on over to and see what they’re all about, (and I recommend doing so anyway) but we can save you the time here and simply say that Venterra is a different type of real estate company than what you’re probably used to.

For a start, despite being based in Austin, Texas, they have apartment communities available to relocate to all over the southern United States, although judging by the tradjectory of their business, that may soon grow to include the rest of the U.S. and possibly parts of Canada too. If you are moving because of a new job, or simply need a quick change of pace, then Venterra offer studios, and one to four bedroom apartments in their various communities, and also employ the use of maintenance teams (called Handy Man services) to help new tenants out in their new place. (It is normally a good idea to let the professionals handle it, if it is the first time that you are hanging drapes, putting up shelves or T.V. brackets, and we won’t tell anyone if you do!)

But that’s not the best part about Venterra Realty. For five years in a row, they have made Fortune’s Top 100 Best Workplaces, for their core values amongst staff, the great workplace atmosphere, and their willingness to work with everyone. Now this may not seem outwardly relevant to you as tenants, but that good culture shows in the work that they do. They put their emphasis on people, and so when it comes to those who have moved into a new environment that Venterra are maintaining, you can rest assured that they are always putting you first. So if you are looking to relocate easily, calmly, quickly and completely, start by contacting Venterra.

Storage Specialists

On the same theme of relocating and moving house, there is one element that will make the entire process so much easier. As a top tip, get your belongings out of the way and into a storage facility. The chaos of trying to fit all of your stuff into boxes and then move into a new place, only to then have to figure out where to put them all is a hassle you just won’t need in this process. Homeowners who are downsizing, in particular, will know the benefit of putting all of your stuff out of sight, safely in a storage facility with easy access, for now.

So what do you do with all of your belongings, while you’re moving from Point A to Point B? Well, the answer to that is simple: self storage. Now, unlike most services, which are more unique to a location, there are plenty of U.S. Self Storage facilities to choose from close-by. Plus, American self storage units tend to cater for all needs, by having climate control, drive-up, and vehicle storage at your disposal. Storage Units that are operated by U.S. Self Storage are quick to apply for, meaning reservations are given in a timely manner and, with over 10,000 facilities across the United States, there is bound to be one close to where you are moving from, or moving to. Plus, they offer business and student storage units as well, so are definitely catering to all markets.

Roofing Specialists

There are few things in life that are worse than a problem with a roof. Climate, trees, or just plain old time, all contribute to the wear and tear of a roof, but the problem can be further exasperated if it’s left alone. Plus, this is definitely not a problem you should handle by yourself, and will without doubt need the help of a specialist.

But hiring a specialist is about more than simply repairing or requiring a new roof. While the roofing materials are important to keeping issues at bay, according to Bethel Park roofing contractor Buccos Roofing, the shingle tiles and the siding are good for the aesthetics, but the gutter and downsprouts are important to the rainwater management system of a home. A leak due to faulty roofing or gutters can potentially cause flooring and ceiling problems with damp, or even structural damage.

It’s vitally important to make sure that any problems with your roof are taken care of by a specialist, as soon as they present themselves. If that requires hiring a roofing company to provide emergency roof repair then so be it. No one can achieve the same level of craftsmanship that professional roofers bring to the table, so it should be left to the specialists to fix any rooftops, gutters or downsprouts. The cost of a new roof installation, or a roof replacement can be negotiated, but the peace of mind is priceless.

On a side note, Bethel Park homeowners, or residents in the greater Pittsburgh area should call Buccos Roofing for a free estimate. Alternatively, visit their website and have a look through their past projects. There may be something there that strikes your fancy.

Eye Specialists

Now this may seem like a bit out of the blue for this list, but there is never a bad time to look up eye specialists in your area. We only get two of them, so it’s in our best interest to take care of our eye health and the vision they provide. If you aren’t making regular trips to your optician anyway, then you should be. But if you are new to the area, you may not have registered with one just yet, in which case you need to find yourself an optometrist quickly.

Opticians check out the ongoing quality of your eyesight, which is why visiting them often is a must. According to the CDC, there are a multitude of eye conditions that can affect your vision, leading to blindness, and these aren’t particularly age specific either. No matter where you are, there is bound to be an Optometrist’s office nearby, and many also offer eyewear and lenses, as well as eye exams.

L’ Optique, based in California, are one such example of an optician that doubles up as a boutique eyewear store as well. This means that once you have received the results of your eye exam, Optique allows you to quickly start the corrective actions to fix any conditions that you have been diagnosed with, and look stylish at the same time! It is fair to say that the internet is your friend in looking for a specialist, but sometimes we just need a quick reminder of what to look for first.
