There are many Estate Sale companies but make sure you hire a Certified Appraiser

With certified appraisals and professionally run estate sales we have many services to fit your need.


Preparing to Downsize

Questions to ask yourself when downsizing

When making the decision to downsize for whatever reason, several questions may come to mind:
  1. What are my possessions worth?
  2. Where do I take my possessions?
  3. Am I giving away a treasure?
  4. How can I make this fair to my heirs?
  5. What do I do when my children do not want my things?
  6. How do I sell my items?
  7. Do I need formal, written appraisals?
  8. How do I know my items are going to the right hands?

About Life Transitions

Life Transitions is owned and operated by Carol Edwards, a graduate of College of the Appraisers. Carol has been a certified personal property appraiser for over 20 years. She has helped clients realize the value of their treasures. Through the inspection of a client’s items, Carol once discovered a rare and important antique lamp that later sold for over $56,000 at auction. The client had no idea! This is just one example of the many wonderful items that have been discovered for clients and their property was appropriately appraised and sold for the maximum value.

Carol has been in the antique and consignment business for many years. While working at a local consignment store in Del Mar, she came across the same situation repeatedly: adult children coming into the shop with a whole house to liquidate and becoming overwhelmed, not knowing where to start.

We offer a one-hour-long free consultation.

Upon your first consultation visit. This may help you think about how Life Transitions can help you.
