Challenge: A couple was faced with a predicament; he transferred to a job in California and she needed to downsize to stay in Austin to run her specialty retail business and be with her daughter while she finished school. They lived in a beautiful Hyde Park Craftsman home but needed to sell quickly so they could support the dual living arrangements. The home was 2200 square feet with a detached two-car garage that was used as a workshop and storage space. While he took most of his personal belongings to California, she had most of the family possessions from multiple generations including furniture, historical artifacts, and antiques in the home, garage and two storage units. As you can imagine, there was a lot of stress!
Solution: Team JujuBz was contracted to:
Tasks: Because space was at a premium with the incoming contents of the storage units, we first eliminated clutter, disposed of trash and recyclables. Next, to clear the attic and garage of our client’s property and determined what was to be kept, sold or donated. Then pack (86) boxes of personal belongings for our client and move them to her new home nearby.
Once space became available, Team JujuBz went to work moving the contents of the storage units to the original home in preparation for the estate sale.
A piece of yard art Team JujuBz dismantled and brought inside for safe keeping.
At this time, we engaged our estate sale specialist to begin inventorying and researching the hundreds of pieces to be sold.
Several pieces of highly sought-after items that sold quickly during one of the most successful estate sales of the season!
