About the Owner - João “John” Moreira


In todays’ busy and mobile world, life’s transitions can be difficult, emotional and stressful. But when the process is supported with care, love and laughter, the challenges can be less overwhelming and more manageable. I’m João “ John” Moreira, the local owner and operator of Caring Transitions of Rockville, and I want to be a trusted advisor to you or your family members’ relocation or downsizing.  My team and I want to make life’s transitions manageable and significantly reduce your stress and the amount of time and energy you need to complete the transition.  

I know how stressful life’s transitions can be – my wife and I both experienced those challenges firsthand with my parents and aunt. My parents lived in New York and we lived in Maryland so, when they were in a position that they needed to relocate, it took an inordinate amount of time and energy to help them through their transition. We drove from Maryland to New York almost every weekend for six months and, honestly, I don’t know how we did it. It was overwhelming. If I had known about Caring Transitions there is no doubt I would have called for their counsel and services.

Fast forward to 2020. When we were all hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, my son and I began to think about the impact the pandemic had on so many families and what we could do to help families in need.  We looked for opportunities where we could leverage our personal, as well as our significant public and private sector corporate and entrepreneurial experiences, and decided to open a Caring Transitions office in our area. Having served in the Navy during Vietnam era in my younger years, I now see Caring Transitions as an opportunity to serve our community in a new way as I near retirement, as well as providing us a chance to start and grow a family business. I am also pleased that my son, John, joined the team as our Chief Operations Officer.

The professional and compassionate counsel and services Caring Transitions provides are perfect for managing the many aspects of a transition and relocation. Our specially-trained professionals handle decluttering, organizing, packing, moving, resettling, in-home estate sales and online auctions, estate clearing and preparing homes to put on the market. We recognize that every situation is different and customize our solutions for every client, so there’s no “one size fits all” program.   

Our team works in Rockville, Potomac, Bethesda and Kensington communities of Montgomery County and we look forward to meeting and serving you!
