    Everything went like clockwork! Nancy and her team are truly professional. All discarding and donating of items were handled with sincere compassion to help my sister "let go" of stuff that she really did not need in her new environment. They placed & arranged items/pictures on the wall and even made up beds. All items moved were put in their places. My sister just had to help with suggestions of placement--even to placing dishes and flatware in kitchen! They cleaned the new apartment and took away all trash/boxes. Top quality service from such a caring and professional team. Nancy Alberts also provides professional and knowledgeable advice about any life transition. We were blessed to have her services along with her caring team members

    Nancy was a lifesaver! She counseled about which belongings to take, which to donate, which to sell. Her teams did a remarkable amount of work packing and unpacking and they were great fun to have around! On the day that I "hit the wall" and thought it just couldn't be done Nancy "talked me off the bridge" with her calm demeanor. On the day of the move, Nancy supervised the movers at the "move-out" and the "move-in". She made sure I had a path through the boxes to get to my bed (I'd opted to do most of the unpacking on my own) and made the bed before she left. Nancy is a Godsend and worth every penny!

    A major obstacle was that all of the immediate family live far outside the Norfolk area; involved family members live in Seattle, Indianapolis, and western Massachusetts. Thus, everything had to be arranged and conducted via phone and email. In addition, since the person being relocated is elderly, Ms. Alberts and her crew had to deal with a cluttered apartment. Nancy kept in constant contact with the family every step of the way and coordinated everything beautifully. She and her crew carefully packed all apartment contents, worked logistically with a local storage company, moved everything efficiently and safely, and transferred selected heirlooms to family members in multiple locations. In addition, she served as active liaison with several antique dealers and auction houses to appraise, sell, and financially track a number of items that needed to be kept out of storage. All of the work was done in timely fashion and well, especially given the less-than-optimal conditions. Ongoing family communication was a high priority for the company; this included inventorying sale items via pictures sent to multiple family members so heirloom items could be retained as desired. As company owner, Nancy is extremely responsive (answering all questions quickly, and being very caring and sensitive to family needs / dynamics); friendly and courteous; highly knowledgeable RE: logistics, item values, and local expert resources; and highly capable. Especially impressive is that for everything the company did for us, the final cost was a good bit less than we had anticipated

    We initiated contact by phone and scheduled a visit which was free, We then decided together what she could offer that would best fit our needs. She guided us through an experience that was intimidating for us.

    We contacted Long's on Shore Drive and they were available for an appraisal that day. They did the sorting on the spot and the appraisal was ready the next day. I also left some of my jewelry that I wanted to sell with them and in 3 days, they made an offer which I thought was fair.

    5.0
    They did an excellent, excellent job. It is just a tiny little jewelry store in Beavis but they were excellent. They were just very professional and very good. It was reasonably priced and it was done on time. Everything was fine. It was $100 to have both the ring and the necklace appraised and they also built prongs on the diamond for the ring. I have been to other places that I didn’t care for as much as Jewel Box. I trust leaving my jewelry there and I don’t worry about having the diamond switched. I would continue to recommend them. Whenever I needed jewelry repaired or appraised I take it there

    Hauser's were expert, kind, quick service, and the ring is gorgeous! There was no pressure to buy more than we could afford, and the jeweler who did the work was there to speak to us! Totally happy with the experience.

    Nancy Alberts sat with me and reviewed her service options. I had no intention of using anyone to help me purge the contents of my home. As she spoke I realized that what I really needed…and wanted was what she had to offer: minions. Her minions were little miracle workers. They took my copious and beloved belongings and made them disappear to various destinations. They did it all in less than four days and they did it under the quoted amount. And they didn’t make my life miserable. Furthermore, at no time did I feel as if I was inadequate for not being able to do this all on my own. I just felt like a little bunch of miracle workers had arrived to take what I have literally dreaded doing for my entire adult life and make it go away. (I had always called this house “my feet first house”. By that I meant that I intended to leave this house feet first, as they took me directly to the funeral home. I decided that I would let moving out be my children’s problem. Don’t judge me, I’m not perfect.) I honestly do not know how I would have managed without Nancy and her minions. This moving thing is a bigger physical and emotional strain than even I, in my global panic over the mere thought of it, realized. I believe that either my daughter (who was giving up her life to be there to help me, bless her pointed little head) or I would have ended up hurting each other or recruiting seconds for a duel if we had had to finish the job we had already spent so much time starting. When she and her minions left us my house was staged (she used what we had to make it look fabulous, cleaned, and virtually empty. It was ready to be shown the very same day. Nancy’s calm prevails throughout the process. But make no mistake, she is driven to get it all done. Furthermore, Nancy is completely transparent with regard to any vendors you may need. She has trusted vendors (carpet cleaners, movers, shippers, auctioneers, cleaners, appraisers, etc.) she can recommend but she provides you with their direct contact information. She is frank, honest and worth every penny. I'm grateful. And, would use her again and again

    It was a professional appraisal. He let me know when he was going to have it done and stuck to it. It was a very professional package that came with it for the insurance companies.

    Nancy Alberts is the owner. She doesn't charge you anything for the first visit. She was punctual. She is very professional and very knowledgeable. She basically just walked in the house and gave me an idea what to expect from some of the belonging we did have and didn't know any value on. She gave a written estimate about what it would cost for her to take care of the property as far as getting rid of everything. We actually are in a process right now of deciding whether we are going to use her try to sell things based on her recommendation. It was a very positive experience. I felt very comfortable dealing with her
