Losing a family member is difficult enough and further complicated during the COVID-19 outbreak. 20 months before my mother's unexpected passing, Neil help her move from a lovely bungalow to her independent living apartment in a senior community. Neil did everything from sorting to downsizing to staging to moving her and setting up everything! The staging in her home was so fabulous that she entertained four offers on the first day it was listed! Neil even brought in some items to improve the appearance. Mom was thrilled with her new apartment once Neil had completed the full set up which included pictures on the walls, food in the pantry and toiletries put away.
When mom passed I immediately called Neil as I live 8 hours away from mom's place. He was compassionate and willing to handle everything which was to include selling and donation of items, a complete clear out and cleaning of the apartment. When I returned home, we had 4 1/2 weeks to complete the clear out. My intention was to return once more to do a final walk through and remove some more items, but the COVID-19 outbreak prevented my return. Neil was very attentive. He walked through the apartment while I was on the phone to discuss everything. He met multiple family members who were taking some items. He returned the cable boxes for me. In short, he made sure everything was in good order!
I was incredibly impressed with and thankful for Neil! My praise does not come lightly as I worked in the senior move management industry. I worked with some of the finest on the East Coast including founding and board members of the National Association of Senior Move Managers. Neil is top notch! I recommend him without hesitation.
You are a dynamo! When my wife and I decided to move, we could not fathom how we would get ourselves out of our home of over 40 years. We were paralyzed! Then you came in with your talented assistants, told us not to worry, and got us out of our house.
Also appreciated was how beautifully you set up our new home. And on the same day that we moved into it. Coming home to our new apartment was like, well, coming home! Everything was done! I was even able to make breakfast the very first morning that we lived there.
Thank you again. I cannot say enough about you, your employees, and the services that you offer.
I just wanted to thank you again for all that you did regarding my Dad's move to Home of the Good Shepherd. We couldn't have done it without you. We were just amazed at the transformation of Dad's room once all of his belongings were in place. The pictures on the wall were exactly what I had in mind. You captured a bit of my Mom's decorating sense with the groupings of pictures and that meant the world to us. Even Dad was noticing things and I could tell he was very pleased.
You made the whole move stress free for us since you were able to take care of items we didn't want to have to deal with. That alone was worth every penny to me!!! Plus the fact we went out to lunch and in a mere hour or hour and a half you made Dad's room the most welcoming space we could ask for was just amazing.
I can't thank you enough for everything and I will be sure to let people know of your services.
The biggest challenge we ever had in our 34 years as homeowners was leaving home.
Your professional expertise and optimistic “can do” approach to meeting this challenge made our move a success.
From your first visit to assess our situation to your final goodbye when you presented us with an empty and clean home as well as a healthy check from the sale you organized and managed, you really carried the burden.
Throughout the four months we worked together you always kept in touch and provided the necessary guidance to help us tackle the task at hand with assurances that you "had our back.”
Thank you Neil and Saratoga Senior Move Managers. We recommend you without hesitation.
Neil helped our family clean out and stage an enormous house that contained three generations' worth of items. His commitment to the job and the level of organization he brought to the task meant that we didn't need to worry and took the pressure off stressed-out family members.
He did everything, including sorting, cleaning, and organizing the items in the house; planning and running the estate sale; and staging the home for sale. Neil kept us in the loop when necessary and worked quietly but efficiently behind the scenes the rest of the time. He also worked with an eye for where we could save money during the process, which was much appreciated.
