It all started because I wanted a new bed! I had been sleeping in that 1920’s beautiful walnut poster bed for over 20 years and I loved the feel and color of that mellowed wood. There was a new mattress placed on that bed about 10 years ago and it was still pretty comfortable. But, the bed was just too small.

What do I do with that walnut poster bed and the two matching dressers? They were in such good condition but my children had their big king sized beds and they were not interested. Over the past years I have had many treasures that were now stacked in boxes in the basement or tucked into cabinets throughout the house. There were many thoughts racing through my head. What do I do with all my “stuff?”

My new bed was ordered and on route from the manufacturer so I had some time to collect my thoughts and realized that I simply needed to downsize. I checked out this new business I had been hearing about called Caring Transitions of Northeast Wisconsin. Into my life entered Mary Kay and her husband Paul. What a wonderful pair of “angels” they were for me.

First, they came and talked to me about their services and how that beautiful bedroom set would certainly be of value to someone. We talked about my boxes of Stangl birds, my 1900’s cranberry glass collection, and my Star Wars ornaments. Before long I realized I could accomplish my goals of downsizing my household, receive value for my collections of the past, and also to realize some additional cash to purchase the new bedspread, pillows and curtains for my bedroom.

Mary Kay and Paul began to explain to me the process and soon they were advising me of each step. It was wonderful and they did all the work! They helped identify items, they cleaned items, and they photographed all the items. When I thought they were finished, they were actually just going home to research and write descriptions for each item.

Soon, with my permission of course, there was a very interesting on-line auction! Oh, how nice those items looked! Some items attracted many bids and some of my perceived treasures were not so popular. It was actually interesting to watch the on-line sale from my bedroom computer.

The sale is now completed. Mary Kay and Paul packed my treasures into boxes for each bidder to pick-up. My emotions were ones of satisfaction and completion. I had loved my treasures over the years but like my bed, they too, had outlived their usefulness. I was happy with the extra space in my house and my new bed!”

"We were living 700 miles away when our lake home sold. Having no idea how to manage the liquidation of the furniture, we did an internet search for Estate Sale companies. We reached out to Caring Transitions on New Years Day (we were desperate!) not expecting to hear back on a holiday. Within 20 mins Mary Kay emailed that she'd be available to talk THAT DAY. After talking with her, we felt one thousand pounds of burden lift off of our shoulders. She assured us that she'd orchestrate the entire moving process, which included:

* Selling all items we designated and managing the pick-up
* Cleaning out a very messy boathouse that was covered in snow in the bitter wind and cold
* Managing a team of movers to transport key items to our FT residence
* Ensuring the house was cleaned properly
* and so much more.

Mary Kay and Paul exceeded all of our expectations. They communicated every step of the way with us and were always positive and comforting to us. Trying to manage this on our own, several states away, would have been a nightmare. Caring Transitions made it a dream."

Thank you for everything. The move was made so much easier because of you. You are providing a wonderful service – you worked your butts off, all this in one day. This has made the transition for Ruth so much nicer as you set up her new apartment just the way she liked it. Thank you again.”

It is such a relief that I don't have to deal with this anymore. I am so thankful for you!  Don't know what I would have done without you.”
