Chantilly Local Community - Planning for Future Change with a Stay Plan


About the Program

For individual homeowners, HomeSpan has teams of recognized experts at planning for the future. They provide clarity to what the future brings, determine what it takes to support that vision, and develop workable plans to help make that vision a reality. For older adults and their loved ones, they develop comprehensive information vital to decisions about retiring-in-place and about staying in a home for as long as possible. Niche engineering expertise is used to prepare an objective analysis and the result of that analysis is delivered to the client as a StayPlan. HomeSpan conducts site visits, creates 2D and 3D visualizations of affordable solutions, and prepares specific, recommended action plans with timelines and cost estimates.

About the Speaker

Mark Pfarrer

Mark Pfarrer is a Senior Engineer at the local consulting engineering firm of HomeSpan, providing comprehensive information to homeowners about retiring-in-place decisions.

Mark is a registered professional engineer in Virginia and Maryland. After he retired as an officer in the US Navy’s Civil Engineer Corps, he worked on the design teams of the Navy’s acquisition programs for the Ford Class aircraft carrier and the Virginia Class submarine. From there, he developed a passion for supporting our seniors, becoming a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) with the Society of Certified Senior Advisors, and helping to lead the Fairfax County chapter of a professional services group called Planning for Senior Life. His focus these days is helping those approaching retirement figure out how they can prepare for and stay in their own home after retirement and more seamlessly transition into aging-in-place.
