Please see what some of our customers are saying about us!
The only estate sales I go to because there cannot be anyone else who treat their clients & customers the way John & Stacie treat us. Their sales are always well organized, clean & priced reasonably. We have been going to some of their sales for about 5 years and it is always the highlight of my day. I hope to keep doing business with them for years to come.
John, Tania & Stacie are an incredible team who help all different types of clients through some of life's most stressful transitions. They are first class and do fantastic work from start to finish. They take care of everything and I do mean EVERYTHING. The sorting, the pricing, the staging for sale, advertising, online selling, the sale itself and the clean up afterwards. They are truly Amazing. I highly recommend. Thank you Caring Transitions! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Sales run by caring transitions are my favorite sales. They are professional. Items are clean and displayed nicely. Easy to shop. They show care for their clients. Many times I have heard John say “ I have to make money for my clients” when someone makes an offer on items that are already priced fairly. Many times I have seen Tania make sure the house stays reasonably clean when people are coming in from outside and not wiping their feet, or some other mishap happens. They are respectful of the homeowners and shoppers. Staci remains calm and pleasant when totaling items and answering peoples questions.They are grateful and appreciative for people coming to the sales. An amazing team of professional, caring people. They know what it takes to get the job done and they do it.
John, Stacy, and Tanya are friendly, fair, and efficient. They set clear standards and make all feel welcome. And thanks for making your regular customers feel special. We love their sales the best!
I would like to respond to a few of these reviews. Keep in mind there are always 2 sides to the story. The latest from Dixie was a case of "no good deed goes unpunished." They called in a panic after their original estate sale company canceled on them. We would not have normally taken this job as there were very few items that were worth very much but I explained that even though this "would NOT be a money maker" at least EIGHT times, they would nonetheless end up with a small check and an empty home ready for the new owners. There were quite a few items left over even after the 50% off day. the FREE table was barley touched. After the sale there was quite a lot of inventory to deal with, however, we emptied out the house and Dixie had no out of pocket costs. We do not dictate what the market will bear however, we do know from experience that cracked and chipped items, used clothing, etc., do not sell. That seems to have been a rude awakening for Dixie. We even brought in a Craftsman mower, cast iron lawn ornaments and a few other items where she received her percent of the proceeds...No good deed goes unpunished and I am sorry She was not happy. Next, the client that referred to me as a robber was also just a jewel. There ARE LABOR COSTS to liquidating a home of this magnitude, the home was 2,000 sq. ft. with a FULL attic and a 2 car garage, a 1,000 Sq ft shop and a shed, not to mention the covered patio. All of these areas were stuffed to the gills. Not only was it a hording situation but there was the added bonus of pet and rodent waste along with chemicals and general filth. All areas were so dense that there was only a trail available to move and most rooms were at least 1/3 of the way up to the ceiling. The client did not pay a deposit, stiffed us on two FULL, very large dumpsters and refused to sell the Tuff Shed for a fair offer of 1500.00 that we received and could not take. After all that, we actually sold just about everything but, without the deposit and the cost of the dumpster service that we require everyone else to pay up front and the lost revenue from the Shed, the client ended up owing us money which he never paid. The good news: The client sold the home in less than 45 days which would have been impossible without us. Whose the crook? Finally, the last one is the most unfair. This sale was out on a beautiful acreage in S. Salem. It was winter and therefore, soggy. Our client asked us if we could barricade the dirt road up to the barns and out buildings as they did not want any tire grooves and ruts in the yard during showings while the home was on the market. Fine, no problem, we put up barriers and had offsite parking. As the afternoon progressed a big pickup truck decided to barrel past the barricades. You can imagine how upset we were to see this. I really don't care if this pickup was occupied by pink, purple, or polka dot people. They had no right to ignore the signs and barriers. We were in disbelief and reacted by yelling, "What the hell do you think you're doing?" and "Get this truck out of here NOW!" OK, we might have been a little more diplomatic. It's unfortunate that when people who know they are in the wrong, resort to playing the race card and I for one am sick of it. We have a very diverse clientele that we look forward to seeing weekly. We have never run across these complainants before or since. I hope we never do again. After doing over 100++ sales, I realize that you can't please everyone all the time, but we try. Tania Turnell
