Mary Jane Holmes

Mary Jane Holmes launched Smooth Transitions® of Southwest Missouri in order to fill a gap for seniors who have decided to downsize and need assistance.  As time passed, more and more people of every age began to reach out for assistance with relocations, downsizing and estate sales.  We provide our services to whoever needs help.  We provide assistance with both in-town and out-of-town moves.

These are life events that most people don’t commonly undertake.  Smooth Transitions has the experience and expertise to make these tasks feasible, timely and affordable.

We want to make things as easy as we can for you and your family.  We are a “One Stop Shop”.  We do anything related to moving or clearing out an estates.  Just ask, we will do everything we can to accommodate your needs.

Mary Jane has a Master’s degree in Social Work with an emphasis in working with the senior population. In 2009, Mary Jane received her senior move management training and became a Smooth Transitions licensee. 

Smooth Transitions of Southwest Missouri has helped hundreds of families with moving, downsizing, and estate sales. Our desire is to make a significant and positive difference for people at a time when they truly need help.

Originally from Texas, Mary Jane and her family have called Springfield home for more than 24 years.  She is devoted to making Springfield a better place to live by participating in volunteer work with her church, starting a Neighborhood Watch Group and donating her time and services to Senior Age.
