Quotes Catherine came out to our house to consult with us on preparing our home for real estate showings. She was very knowledgeable and has had a lot of experience doing this. It really showed. Everything she said made perfect sense once she explained it. We went room by room while she checked everything out. Our house is a 2100 sq. ft. bungalow with a full basement and we covered all of it over the course of a couple of hours. The day after she left she sent and email with all of her suggestions listed so that we could work away at them. She will be coming back in a week for the final touches and some furniture moving. Catherine has already been a tremendous help and I am absolutely certain that if we follow her recommendations our house will look it's total best. Would recommend her to anyone looking to showcase their home. Quotes

Quotes Thank you for all the work you did on our house! We had never used pre-sale preparation services before and were concerned that the cost would not result in added value. However, seeing the end results, and working with you through the process, we are very, very pleased. Your work led to us getting more for our house, and it sold in just a few days. Lending us your furniture was a godsend! You are talented and generous, and we would recommend you highly! Quotes

Quotes Hi Catherine. Wow!! What an awesome job you did on the house. I can't believe you were able to clear it out, make it look so spacious, get the painting done and all the other repairs and find storage for my collections. Getting the on-site storge pod was genius. I commend you for being willing to tackle this hoarder's haven, and your fees were very reasonable for all that you accomplished. A million thanks. Quotes

Quotes Hi Catherine. Thank you ever so much for all your hard work on the Contents Sale. We were delighted that you delivered exactly what you promised: Everything got sold, and the house was immaculate for the purchasers. We are delighted with our suite in the retirement residence. Your advice was a huge help, especially the small space furniture you sent us to look at. We'll be recommending to to our friends as they get ready to down-size too. Sincere thanks, G&D. Quotes

Quotes What a great move manager and organizer you are Catherine. Between getting the house ready for sale, overseeing all the details for the condo renos and then getting everything packed, unpacked and set up in such great style, you have made this move effortless for us. With our recent health problems we could never have managed this without you. We've been telling everyone we know: She took all the stress, worry and work out of the whole transition. Fabulous job! Thank you. Quotes

Your fees and work resulted in the house selling for $40 thousand more than we were originally going to list at!
