“Add another five-star review for KF Family Matters! Kim helped us get my parents-in-law house and orchard cleaned up and ready for sale after my mother-in-law moved to assisted living. It ended up being a much bigger job than we initially thought it would be – people can accumulate a lot of stuff after living in one place for fifty-plus years! My husband and I live out of the area and were not able to assist in getting the place cleaned up, and his 3 siblings also were not able to help. So we basically turned the keys over to Kim and told her to go for it.
Kim took charge and first got the place cleaned up, separating items for donation, for sale, and that the kids wanted. She had some good ideas about how to do an estate sale for some of the furniture, and took charge of advertising and holding the estate sale. She worked with my husband’s siblings so that they could retrieve their possessions. We are particularly grateful to her for this part because she had to deal with some challenging family dynamics. She was able to sell my mother-in-law’s car and some of the orchard equipment. Once the house was finally cleaned up, Kim worked with other professionals to schedule and perform new painting, new carpet, etc. It ended up taking about 6 months from start to finish. Throughout this time, Kim communications skills were excellent. She took the initiative and made suggestions. She kept us informed throughout by phone, email or text and asked for our decisions where appropriate. And she was also sensitive to the financial situation and made suggestions on how to make the best use of her time. I’m sure I left something out but can summarize by saying that I would highly recommend Kim.”
