To Kerri and her crew,CrisSeptember 2015
A giant thank you for the estate sale you handled for us in Shell Rock. You were very careful to treat our parent’s possessions with great care and respect. We have heard nothing but positive comments from their friends that were able to be at the sale. And, another giant thank you for the clean up after the sale. Kerri, you delivered on all counts and made this process so much easier for us. We have had the opportunity to recommend your services to family and friends who may be in need of the services you offer.
I was at your sale on Friday and they indeed carried on and did their as usual EXCELLENT customer service. You should be proud of them. They are a kind and caring crew and you are indeed blessed to have them not only as co-workers but as friends.SheilaApril 2016
Your staff did an outstanding job this weekend!RichApril 2016
In early March 2016 a decision was made to move my parents out of their existing home of 56 years because the house was too much for them. The home and garage had plenty of storage with full attics in both units. Over their 70 years of being married they had accumulated a lot of items. I remember sitting down with both of my parents to discuss how are we going to get everything done by April 21, 2016 as we just sold the house and the new owners wanted possession on that date.RichApril 2016
I live in Peoria, Illinois and knew it would be impossible for me to oversee this monumental task let alone participate. My parents were overwhelmed with the task ahead of them, Caring Transitions to the rescue!
Caring Transitions was highly referred to myself by Bridges Retirement Center where my parents were moving to. I contacted Kerri Shimp, the owner
and she immediately returned my call. She explained the various services her company had and how everything worked. We setup a time for Kerri to meet with my parents and they were relieved and impressed with Kerri. We contracted Caring Transitions to do the following:
Determine what was needed to be moved to my parents new location.
Determine what items were going to be sold in an estate sale.
Getting rid of all the junk that should have been taken care of many years ago.
Packed all items and actually moved my folks.
Took care of pricing and getting ready for the estate sell.
Took care of making sure there was plenty of traffic at the estate sell.
Handled all aspects of the estate sell.
Made sure the house and garage was empty and clean when the sell was completed,
Took ownership of the entire process from start to finish with no surprises.
Kerri and her staff were working under a very tight time table but always came to work with a smile and very positive. The staff and Kerri were unbelievable, they were very compassionate and caring with my parents which at times can be challenging. They take great pride in their work and made sure everything was accomplished in the tight time frame. I have nothing but high praise for each and every person
from Caring Transitions, that was involved with my parents' project.
What they were able to do would have taken my family and myself 3-4 months to do and not have the same results!! They were definitely a life saver.
I will highly recommend the services of Caring Transitions to all my friends and family. You are simply THE BEST!!
"We are comfortably moved and resettled. Caring Transitions made this process easier. They helped us plan realistically; they organized and conducted the estate sale; they prepared the property for the new owners. They were courteous, organized, and thorough. They delivered a useful and needed product in a professional manner. We are satisfied and happy customers."Jim/FranJune 2016
But we wanted to thank you in advance for all your hard work on our behalf & the professionalism without which an otherwise difficult & sad transition would have been much harder.Don and Pat GSeptember 2016
Thank you again for helping us at the last minute and for doing such a great job! Molly LJanuary 2017
We are so fortunate to have learned about the Cedar Valley’s hidden treasure, Caring Transitions, just when we were at our wits’ end about how to proceed with getting our 85-year-old mother’s home ready for sale while moving her to assisted living. One phone call to Kerri Shimp and a face to face meeting the very next day and we were on our way to a return to sanity. Sheryl PetersonMarch 2017
Caring Transitions is a “one stop shop” for everything we needed: sorting through every item in the house, organizing and pricing items for sale, disposing of non-sellable items, donating other items, conducting the sale, removing items that didn’t sell, cleaning out the house after the sale, wrapping up our account in a timely measure.
There were no surprises during the entire process except pleasant ones! Any questions we had for Kerri were answered to our satisfaction. Kerri and her team are extremely knowledgeable, patient, helpful, and hard working. They treated us with respect and care. They offered help when we needed it most and took all the worry away. We couldn’t have done it without them!
Don’t miss this hidden treasure!
