When I had to sell the house my mother lived in for more than 65 years, I found it to be an almost impossible task getting started. There were clothes in every closet, furniture in every foyer and tons of stuff that made for barricades in the basement. I frankly had no idea where to begin, the job seemed so overwhelming.
And then I hired Mindy Applebaum, from Luxury Move Management, who turned the place from looking like a bomb had hit it, into one that showed me what it looked like after an “Applebaum” had hit it! She “edited” the house, helped organize what needed to be donated, what could be sold and what was junk. Dozens of boxes, sheets of bubble wrap, a plethora of packing paper and green garbage bags later, (all of which she provided), my old childhood homestead was in a state I never thought I’d see it – completely empty and ready for sale.
I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been able to get there without her help and advice, which was strong when I was ready to give up, soft when I was gung-ho to get it done, and understanding as I watched pieces of my family’s life disappear forever, a tough but necessary step. Mindy was there all the way, even coming down by herself and taking over with a spare set of keys I provided when I couldn’t make it.
She also has plenty of contacts I would never have thought of, from donation places to junk men, on-site shredding, cleaners, movers, and more. My dog Smiley also fell in love with her, and he’s an excellent judge of character!
They say there’s no place like home. But when it’s time to leave that home for good, there’s no place like Luxury Move Management. To paraphrase that old credit card commercial, “Don’t leave home without her!”
