Affordability

We are mindful of the budgetary reality of managing your home and property. With our Absentee Home Watch Services, you can afford to have the convenience of home management without the high cost of hiring full-time help. We will check your property based on your preferences, such as weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or any schedule you decide. Basic Absentee Home Watch Services are determined on a per-visit basis.

When Problems Occur We Handle It!

You can count on professional handling of your property and home issues. We notify you of any problems and make recommendations to correct them. We put our knowledge of community trades people to work for you.

We will organize the necessary service, meet with the repair person and admit them into your home. We will stay until the repair person has completed his/her work, set alarms and lock up following their departure. We can also send digital photo of problems or completed repairs by email. The property owner is the person who decides what exact repair is to be done and how much money is to be spent. The homeowner has full control and the final say, regarding the satisfaction or outcome of work completed. Personal Property Managers will carry out your specifics wishes. We become your eyes, ears and voice, when you can not be here to manage your home details.

How Is A Crisis Situation Handled?

When a crisis occurs (and they do!) you will be glad it isn’t your neighbor watching over your home! You will have peace-of-mind because you have a professional service in place to handle these upsetting events. There is no worry with Personal Property Managers!

A crisis is handled on the spot. There may not be time to call the homeowner to get pre-approval for expenditures in this case. The main concern in a crisis is to get the situation under control as fast as possible. You will be called as soon as it is feasible. Many times a homeowner can not be reached immediately and the situation can not wait. We have saved further destruction of homes by fast action. Your crisis may need an immediate plumber, electrician, sewer technician or handyman before we can locate you. We completely handle any crisis. This is one of the qualities you will want from a home service company like ours. When hiring an “absentee home watcher” always ask yourself whether the company/person you are hiring can efficiently handle emergency situations? This is what separates a professional service from the local person who “watches homes on the side.” We focus solely on our business and we have the highest reputation to prove it!

World Wide Access

We report all our activities to you from the comfort of your computer. You can see our work from anywhere in the world via our exclusive Internet access. While you are away, you will be given special access to online messages and digital photos of your home and any needed work or repairs. All home visits are documented and digitally photographed per your requirements. A copy of our checklist and pictures will be forwarded to you at your request. Now you can relax and leave the details to us.

How Our Process Works

We begin by meeting with you and your loved ones families personally. This allows us to understand your estates personal needs and for us to develop a tailored solution to meet your individual goals. We offer extreme cleaning and extreme home cleanout services, removing contents from hoarder homes to multi-million dollar homes.

As certified Senior Real Estate Specialist, we then conduct a comprehensive market analysis, which will help give you and the estate a better feel for the value of the home, its contents and their value. We then will evaluate the contents of the property with you and the estate to ascertain what you and the estate wish to keep, give to friends and family, donate, shed, discard or move to a new home. A full inventory is done at this time and is sorted based on your direction to us.

For items of value, we can facilitate an Estate Sale or help remove contents and liquidate them.

For items you or the estate wish to part with, we will arrange for the disposal of them or donate them to charitable organizations. For items you or the estate wish to keep, we can arrange for them to be packed and moved. We then work with you or the estate to determine a moving schedule.

Lastly, we can assist in a final cleaning of you loved ones estate as part of our home downsizing and de-cluttering process, which is all geared to help you and the estate sell the property at the maximum value.

Estate Sale and Content Liquidation Services

In addition to home downsizing and clean outs, we can help sell and liquidate all your estates household contents We work with you and the estate to identify which items you wish to sell, donate or dispose of. Together we develop realistic fair market value price points for all household contents. We even develop special website pages to market your estates contents.

As your estate asset liquidator, we have found that prospective buyers feel that there is a greater perceived value when a professional estate liquidation firm conducts your estates household estate sale.

Please note that the market for pre-owned items is entirely based upon the style, age and condition of your clients contents. As a result, not all things are saleable. Additionally, there will always be two different sets of values to any items. There is the seller’s perceived value, which may have a high emotional and sentimental value, and then there is the potential buyer’s view of the contents value, which is generally very different. Please remember that something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.
