Happy Clients' Homes
A much loved, extensive family home (6 bedrooms) for nearly 30 years. My client separated from their partner a number of years ago and was now looking to down-size to a smaller property.
Working together, we accomplished a substantial clear out, including under stairs cupboard, hallway, dining room and large spare bedroom. Leaving these rooms with defined uses, clear for prospective buyers to view.
Working with Carol, meant I had the motivation and focus to make a major dent in clearing out, ready to show prospective buyers around and my ultimate goal of down-sizing.
Thank you so much, I feel so much lighter today without the responsibility for all that stuff.
Following on from a house move at the ages of 81 and 70 respectively, rather than downsizing, this couple actually moved to a slightly larger property which was a lot more practical for their needs.
When I arrived, the couple were amidst a sea of boxes holding all their treasured possessions. I discussed with them what un-packing needed to be prioritised for the next two days and how they wanted the various rooms set out, we then set to work.
We were so relieved when Carol arrived as we were very overwhelmed by the task before us. Carol worked quickly and efficiently, checking regularly to ensure our possessions were going where we wanted. Most importantly, she made sure our bedroom was all ready for us on the first night, we couldn’t have done it without her.
Subsequent to the house move, we had Carol come back again a few months later to re-organise outside storage, two sheds and a garage!
Whilst going through a bereavement of her husband, this lady aged 79 also had to contend with downsizing from a large 3-bedroom bungalow, to a 2-bedroom retirement flat. She faced the emotive task of what to take and a treasure and what to let go. Over a number of weeks, I worked with this lady, in short sessions 1 to 3 hours to sort through the couple’s possessions and make decisions. Then on moving day I assisted with unpacking.
An additional big task, was to sort through many, many years of paperwork, securely disposing of what was no longer relevant and then setting up a simple, clear filing system. This meant that it was simple for the family to provide all information to the solicitors ready for probate.
This was an extremely difficult time for me and Carol treated me with kindness and empathy, helping me to decide what to let go and what to take to my new home and enjoy. On moving day Carol helped out no end, settling into my new flat. Since moving I’ve made so many new friends and have a whole new lease of life.
