A little about Ali Wenzke…

Hi! I’m Ali Wenzke. My husband, Dan, and I moved ten times in eleven years and I’ve lived in seven U.S. states (FL, MA, MD, OH, CA, IL, and TN). I started this blog to help the millions of people who move each year by providing practical tips on how to build a happier life before, during and after the move. I am a Real Estate Broker for Compass in Winnetka, IL, so I help individuals and families have as stress-free and happy a move as possible. I’m happily settled in the Chicago suburbs with my husband and three children. I don’t plan on moving any time soon.  The Art of Happy Moving: How to Declutter, Pack, and Start Over While Maintaining Your Sanity and Finding Happiness is my first book. 

If you have questions about real estate, I am a broker at Compass on Chicago’s North Shore. Even if Chicago is not your local area, I have a network of the best real estate agents across the country who can help you. Contact me so I can help you have a happy move!

The Art of Happy Moving by Ali Wenzke

Welcome to my blog! If you want to declutter like Marie Kondo and find happiness like Gretchen Rubin but you have to move first, then this site is for you. We’ll talk about how to declutter for your move, how to get your home ready to sell, and how to live happily ever after in your new city. With some of my moving tips, you will soon be in a beautiful, organized home in a community surrounded by new friends.
