I was overwhelmed! I had my own stuff, plus stuff from my parents home that I inherited. OMG, the STUFF! Antiques, silver, books out the whazoo. What to do! Mara came in, quickly surveyed the scene and laid out a game plan. Using her recommended vendors, I did most of the work, but she handled things I knew nothing about - like how to shed silverware and antiques. What mover to use. Who was the mo...

Thank you for your kind words. Wishing you and your family all the best as you proceed with your next steps. Stay safe and healthy!


We highly recommend Mara and the crew. The challenge of cleaning out my mother-in-law's home in order to get it ready for sale seemed insurmountable so we called Mara. She walked through the home with us, gave us her expert comments as to what she would sell, donate and trash. She guided us through the whole process, and completed the task very quickly once we hired her. The 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath ho...

Mara couldn't have been better. She was with me every step of the way through an emotional and overwhelming project. First, she assessed what we had and determined what could be auctioned, what could be sold, and what should be donated.

[Member Name Removed] and [Member Name Removed], Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience working with us. It was a sincere pleasure to assist your family with this project. Sending all our best to your family. Mara


We were looking for a medium-sized agency: One large enough to be efficient, but not so large that it's difficult to track progress or where items are going. Mara and her team were the perfect match for us. They were efficient, cleaning the entire house in only 5 days. This was a very large task. It was managed expediciously and well worth the cost. Due to distance, Mara kept us informed of every ...

Description of Work
This was a 2-1/2 story house with a full basement that had been in the family for nearly 100 years and the last 15 was occupied by a bachelor hoarder. Only paths through the entire house remained. We needed the entire house cleaned out and broom-ready and we were trying to deal with this from 500 miles away.
