Have you ever thought about moving and were just completely overwhelmed by the thought? I had those feelings too after 17 years in our last house. So much stuff! Where start? Now, imagine what it would be like after 47, 57 or even 67 years in the same house! Many seniors face this very predicament. They bought the family home, raised their children and stayed put. The stuff accumulated and so did their children’s. Add age and physical deterioration to the mix and it’s no wonder people feel overwhelmed. For some, just coping with day-to-day activities is challenging enough, let alone downsizing and moving.

-Laurie Hunt, Toronto Residential Downsizing
There are many reasons for downsizing. Most are planned lifestyle changes such as empty nesters and retirees looking forward to lightening the load and simplify their living arrangements or moves to condo or retirement communities. Others may be due to personal and life-altering circumstances such as health issues, the loss of a loved one or moving a parent to retirement/care residence. You may be the Executor of an estate and wonder how you will ever cope with the multitude of tasks required to liquidate the estate or ready the property to be sold under the pressure of a deadline. These are all challenging circumstances that are time-consuming, and can be stressful and overwhelming. Toronto Residential Downsizing is there to help.
“Laurie had multiple contacts and managed to sell or dispose of all the contents and cleaned the home to prepare for the new owners. We would highly recommend working with Laurie, she made a sad and tiresome job pleasant and achievable.” – Kim Shannon, Estate Executor
