Testimonials


“Turned an otherwise awful chore into an event.  I did not believe how much sold and the proceeds were much more than I thought.  All in a two week time!!  I really appreciated the “junk” removal.”

- Jim B., Minnetonka, MN


“What a joy to work with you and your staff.  I felt like I was working with my friends! It was such a stressful time for me and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your organization, presentation, and just getting the job done!”

Jan F., Champlin, MN


“Shelly & Lee took the stress out of a very difficult time in my life.  I so appreciate the work that you do. Thank you.”
Teri T., Apple Valley, MN


"Shelly was very professional and understanding when my sister and I were looking for the best way to go through and sort, give away, sell, or keep my mother’s household and personal things after moving to assisted living. I was overwhelmed with the tasks that needed to be done and Shelly’s calming personality was a relief to me during this emotional time. Shelly came to my rescue with only a very short notice. Unfortunately, my other family members did not have the same sentiments that I have for many of our family heirlooms and mementoes. I ended up having to do much of the sorting and packing by myself if I choose to keep items. When I was experiencing a “meltdown” because I was under so much stress, I called Shelly, who responded within a couple of hours to help me out. She was the only person who was not judging me and, quite the opposite, was supportive and understanding. I really needed that type of response and help at that time. I would recommend Shelly to help families such as ours when they are faced with making difficult and emotional decisions for a loved one’s transition.”

"Shelly and her team were a joy to work with.  They took an overwhelming task and organized the estate sale quickly and efficiently.  They made it into a fun experience.  She exceeded my expectations.  Shelly was in constant contact with me and worked several channels to promote the sale and facilitate the sale of the remaining items.  I would recommend Shelly and her team highly to perform estate sale services."

"Shelly, I am the first to say you and your team were and are amazing. You were so kind and gentle with my lovely mother-in-law. Our entire family - she included - were so struck by the amount of effort and professionalism you all showed when working within a very short time line and with a rather large and very "hands on" family - some of whom were still living in the home while we all worked around each other. You went above and beyond in so many ways that I can't even begin to list them."

Kim A., Stillwater, MN

 

"You went above and beyond for my parents sale. You took time to research items and kept us informed. You helped us make sure all the family members were able to take any items special to them. We left you with a huge mess and you painstakingly sorted it into a beautiful sale. You returned items that you felt we needed to keep in the family. You even brought back items that didn't sell at a fair price so we could decide what to do next. Thanks for a job well done."

-Tracey K., Edina, MN

 

"I would highly recommend Shelly and Caring Transitions. We live out of state and needed someone to manage everything for my recently widowed father’s move out of his long-time house. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and patient and managed the packing up his things for a long distance move, getting quotes from the moving companies, supervising the move, running our estate sale and clearing out the house afterwards. She followed up on every detail and went out of her way to help us. What could have been an incredibly stressful, difficult situation became very manageable.”
