    Estate Dispersal and liquidation

There may come a point in your life where you need to do a major downsizing or handle the death of a loved one.

Estate dispersal and liquidation is a major component of a move or following the death of a loved one. Smooth Transitions works with the homeowner, attorney, trust officer or family members to liquidate any remaining articles in the home prior to closing it. We can provide any or all of the following services:

  • Sort personal and household items and arrange for dispersal, shipping, donation, or disposal

  • Locate documents and/or shred paperwork

  • Provide photos and inventory contents of the house

  • Manage the liquidation of the estate through our extensive network of resources.

Downsizing, Organizing or Re-Design

A Senior Move Manger is your partner for aging in place or bridging the gap to a new lifestyle. 

You have heard it called many things downsizing, rightsizing, decluttering, minimizing or organizing. All of those terms revolve around the same thing...getting rid of all of that excess stuff you have accumulated over the years. Don't wait until others are making the decisions about your belongings. The good news is you don't have to be moving to start the process. If you start now, your home can become more manageable and safer for you as you age.

  • We sort and group items for storage in containers

  • We organize documents and arrange for destruction of outdated personal records

  • We depersonalize and remove items from the house prior to putting the house on the market

  • We pack and ship items to family members

  • We identify items for sale or donations

  • We document items donated for tax records

  • We remove and dispose of unwanted items that cannot be sold or donated

  • We organize household items and furnishing to accommodate special physical needs

Sellers & Real Estate Professionals

Moving for a Senior Citizen can be a challenging event. We can organize the move and help get the house on the market as soon as possible. 

One of the more challenging scenarios a realtor encounters is the older seller who has been in their house 30, 40 or even 50 years. When taking on a listing of a senior home you may find any or all of the following:

  • A tired house showing signs of deferred maintenance

  • Spaces that are dark with dated furnishings

  • A home that's in need of a good cleaning

  • One too cluttered to even consider showing

  • The older client too frail, confused or alone and may need assistance.

We are a move management company that can help the seller address obstacles of fear of the future and resistance to change. With a Move Manager as an advocate seniors and their family members have a chance to openly address concerns and learn what level of help is available. Smooth Transitions can help by:

  • Helping the older seller make the choices and start preparing for the move.

  • Speed up the decluttering process

  • Move out the dated furnishings and return rooms to their core use

  • Provide the physical & emotional assistance needed to navigate the complexities of moving.
