Hello and welcome to Caring Transitions of Tampa! My name is Nancy Gilligan. After working in different locations in the U.S. and overseas, I've returned to my home in Tampa. I’ve seen many families, including my own, struggle during some of life’s most stressful and overwhelming times, such as a divorce, a life changing illness, job loss, the death of a loved one or the changing needs of an aging parent. Because of our first hand experience, we understand how difficult this can be. This compelled me to become a Certified Relocation and Transitions Specialist (CRTS) and a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA). It is also the reason I opened Caring Transitions, a total solution consulting company specializing in moving, downsizing, estate sales and liquidations. We assist Seniors, their families and others by coordinating the transition services related to a life-changing event.
During our consultation we will discuss your options and develop a plan tailored to your requirements: Estate Sale, Downsizing, Donation, Online Auction, In-Home Auction, Auction House, Consignment, Packing and Moving, Re-settling or other.....Our goal is to make unexpected events unexpectedly easier.
MANY CLIENTS ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN FEES AND COMMISSIONS. THERE ARE OTHER SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS TO ASK POTENTIAL ESTATE SALE PROVIDERS:
Do you have insurance? (ask to see proof)How will you handle reconciliation? (receipts? spreadsheet?)Will you provide an inventory?What forms of payment do you accept? (credit cards increase sales 30%-40%)What is your marketing strategy?How do you use the internet?What certifications do you hold?
VISIT OR HAVE A FRIEND VISIT ONE OF THEIR ESTATE SALES BEFORE MAKING A DECISION, IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.
