Pare Down

Pare Down

You may have spent a lifetime accumulating personal property assets, including antiques, collectables, general household items and a lot of other possessions. Even if you have a son or a daughter to help you, it can be difficult and overwhelming to figure out what to keep (and not to keep) when you transition to a new, smaller home.

Let us help you get organized.

Plan and Design

  • Develop a transition plan with key dates and deadlines
  • Draw a customized floor plan for your new home and help plan the new space
  • Design your new interiors so they are both attractive and familiar
  • Cherry-pick favorite furniture, lighting, art, and accessories to keep
  • Select colors, materials, finishes, and fabrics
  • Arrange for old furniture to be reupholstered

Downsize or Declutter

  • Sort through belongings and help decide what to keep and what to find a “new home” for
  • Identify what goes where, organize items and spaces
  • Arrange for distribution of unwanted items through auction, estate-sale, buy-out, consignment, donation, or a combination of the above
  • Arrange for shipments and storage

Move Out

After you have moved out, we can have your old home emptied out in no time. We’ll even hand over the keys to your realtor, property manager, or the new owner.

Move with confidence

  • Interview, review estimates, and schedule moving company
  • Supervise and direct movers on moving day at both ends of move
  • Assist in filing change-of-address forms, cancelling your old utilities, and setting up your new ones

Clean up and clear out

  • Make sure all donations are delivered, recyclable materials properly recycled, compostable material composted, and all household hazardous material properly taken care of
  • Arrange for cleaning, painting, window washing, and smaller repairs

Our goal is to find “new homes” for all your unwanted items and have as little as possible end up in landfill.
