In early September, I suggested to my husband that we PRETEND we were moving in a year’s time. We are both in our late 70s, and our house and yard were feeling too big and hard to maintain. My husband got enthusiastic immediately about the idea of moving and began to make appointments with realtors and retirement places. In a month’s time, we had signed to move to a senior community in our area. We had to sell our house fast, and we did, but there was soooo much to get rid of. Adding pressure, the new owners wanted possession in a month, and our new place might not be available yet.
Queen B Organizing had been at the Home Show in Albany; we had a brochure with contact information, and we called about Queen B organizing an estate sale for us. Owner Kristin came right over, assessed our “stuff,” and gave us a price (a guaranteed profit for her company, including employees’ wages) and a copy of her contract. She was easy to talk with and assured us that she and her staff could do the job within our time frame.
As I write this on Christmas Eve, we are in our new place. The sale of the old house closed on December 15th. The house was completely empty and clean, and we had our larger-than-expected check from Kristin—hand delivered—within two days of the sale. We paid nothing out of pocket. We highly recommend Queen B Organizing!
