Moves With A Heart – Downsizing Made Easy

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know ‘why’ I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren’t paved.  -Will Rodgers

Someone asked me the other day what I thought was the hardest part about selling our Wash Park house. I told them I guess it was making the decision to sell. We knew that the time was coming that we needed to decide to sell. We kept pushing the actual decision down the road. When we finally decided, the next step was cleaning out “stuff”. Even though Kathy, being the good German she is, gets rid of clutter on a regular basis, we still had lots of “stuff”. For me, my office was the biggest challenge. As an example, I had 20 years’ worth of real estate files that I was not about to move….BUT…..I needed to go through each file and make sure all my client’s sensitive information was shredded. Here is the good news for you or for someone you know who will be downsizing: Brooke and I have discovered this great little company that will come to your home, go through your “stuff” with you, help you decide what to keep and what to sell or pitch. They have the contacts that will run a sale for you if you choose. The company is “Moves with a Heart” The owners, Pat Bender and Cathy McCarnn, are terrific! They have helped a number of our clients deal with a chore that looked insurmountable.   image002 (1)
