New Hope Estate Sale

Faced with a somewhat unique situation, Caring Estate Sales came through for us in New Hope.

After the death of one parent, prepping the house for sale, preparing and holding an estate sale, and accommodating the disabled parent became priorities. All at once. With limited family support, and my living 45 minutes away, Jim Anderson and Caring Transition’s crew did what they said they’d do, and leveraged critical time effectively. After a few months of working together, regular communication, and getting through all of it, getting a check in the mail was great too.

What did it entail for us?

  • Meeting with Jim, in person and via email, including other family members throughout
  • Laying out a plan of action and timelines
  • Coordinating a talented team to price, and display goods as well as the needed equipment
  • Marketing & running a 2-day sale attended by over 600 people
  • Complete estate sale/house cleanup, disposal, and hauling
  • Dual-tracking the estate sale with needed home code updates and a handyman to accomplish multiple projects
  • Coordinating carpet cleaning and pre-staging the house for sale

What Jim shared with us turned out to be true. There were items that we had no idea were there, including family treasures. It would have taken me weeks to do what his team did. And, in retrospect, the real estate services would have saved time & effort too. His estate marketing contacts, and the team’s creative displays in limited room space were very helpful too and helped move household items. It is a solid business model that accommodated our needs very well, and I recommend Jim & Caring Estate Sales highly.

I will always be grateful to Jim and his staff at Caring Estate Sales for helping move my Mom from her house into an apartment.

As my Mom aged I worried about her safety and ability to live in the house she occupied for more than 40 years.  As you can image the house was full of many memories but also furniture and other things that had accumulated over those years.  I knew the job of finding her a new home, cleaning out the house and selling it was too much for me.

Jim and his staff were great at helping my Mom prioritize and figure out what she could realistically bring with her to her apartment.  After Caring Estate Sales had successfully moved and settled my Mom in her new home they worked quickly to price and organize the remaining items in her house for an estate sale.  Following the estate sale, Jim painted the interior, exterior of the house as well improving the curb appeal with some low cost landscaping.  Selling the house was easy and a big relief to the entire family.

I highly recommend Jim’s work and honesty.  The name of the company, “Caring Estate Sales”, says it all.

Thank you so much for your hard work and entertaining attitudes! You made the whole process of the move easy and it made me feel comfortable with all of the things I have going on in my life right now. Thank you so much.

Dear Jim-

I just wanted to say thank you for volunteering your time to move Gerda. You did a great job setting up her apartment and also getting what wasn’t needed donated. (Thank you so much for that!) I will be referring you in the future.

Dear Jim,
Thank you so much for moving my Dad. You made the process easy and affordable.

To Whom It May Concern:
After the death of my father in January 2008, my brother and I were left with getting my fathers house ready to sell and to clean out 40 years worth of items from the house.  After we had already scheduled to clean the house out ourselves, I found the website for Caring Estate Sales.  They are a full turnaround company that handles everything from the cleaning out of the house, to getting the estate sale ready, to prepping the house for sale.  Jim Anderson came out the weekend that we cleaned out the house and he was very helpful and had a lot of information for us.  Over the next two months, as we continued to prep for the estate sale and the eventual sale of the house, Jim has been very helpful in getting the house ready to sell, cleaning up the yard, and helping with removal of items that didn’t sell at the estate sale.  Basically, all the things you don’t want to do as a member of the family of the person that passed away.  He was extremely helpful in such a difficult time.  He also recommended our realtor to us and we hope the house will sell soon.

Overall, I would recommend anyone to Caring Estate Sales to help with that difficult time after a family member passes away.

Hi Jim,

Just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for your help in moving our client on such short notice a couple weeks ago.  I know what a big job it was!  We really appreciate working with people who are flexible and able to get the job done in a timely and efficient manner.  Thanks again and I'm sure I'll see you around this summer!
