EstateMAX Earns Esteemed 2017 Angie’s List Super Service Award

Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

 

Frederick MD, January 17, 2018 – EstateMAX is proud to announce that it has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award (SSA). This award honors service professionals who have maintained exceptional service ratings and reviews on Angie’s List in 2017.

 

“The service providers that receive our Angie’s List Super Service Award demonstrate the level of excellence that members have come to expect,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “These pros are top-notch and absolutely deserve recognition for the trustworthy and exemplary customer service they exhibited in the past year and overall.”

 

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2017 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include maintaining an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade and review period grade. The SSA winners must be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check, record a current trade license attestation and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

 

EstateMAX has been listed on Angie’s List since 2012. This is the 3rd year EstateMAX has received this honor.

 

Service company ratings are updated continually on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in multiple fields ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.

 

For over two decades Angie’s List has been a trusted name for connecting consumers to top-rated service professionals. Angie’s List provides unique tools and support designed to improve the local service experience for both consumers and service professionals.

6 Estate Sales in 6 Weeks! We MAX-ed it out for our Clients!

In May thru June the EstateMAX team conducted 6 separate downsizing and/or estate sales in 30 days! How do we do it? We have our system! What do we do?

Set up includes merchandising, organization, pricing (based on our 30 years of market value experience, and doing additional market research as needed), extensive advertising including copyrighting all ads and marketing on line, producing sale videos, marketing on site with lawn signage and banners, then conducting and managing the sale of merchandise in the home on sale days and continuing the selling following sale days to “be backs” ( people who have thought it thru and come back for the item-) on furniture delivery and clean up days, then final house clean up including packing and broom sweeping, moving donations to charity and transport of consignments, if any, to Other People’s Stuff by EstateMAX, our estate liquidation warehouse. WHEW!

I pay my clients within one week of end of their sale by bank wire transfer and forward the sales statement by email and a hard copy with all sales receipts, and charity receipts by USPS.

Our clients only need to move out with the items they are keeping and leave the rest to us to sell and prepare their home for settlement or staging!

For those in the downsizing process, we also refer and coordinate with moving services on our client’s behalf as part of our MissionTransition, Transitions management services, or as a stand alone complimentary service to our clients.

We provide downsizing assistance to clients and their realtors to prepare a home for sale, and provide professional home staging which saves money on the staging process by eliminating duplication of services.

Laurie has a pro work background in interior design and furnishing (30 years)- which combined with the EstateMax resources and O.P.S. warehouse inventory gives our team unlimited resources to work with!

Call us for your no cost consultation for your once in a lifetime downsizing or family estate sale, transitions services and staging!

buttonmtlogo

At EstateMAX and MissionTransition we know how to move you and your loved ones, forward with lower stress and make you money as a result of our work! Since 1999 providing transitions management and personal property liquidations!

I have a 90% recovery rate from past projects- uncovering lost items, find missing documents, important sentimental items  from property organization and downsizing, readying my clients for their big move! I take chaos and turn it into a workable environment, ready for the next step!

We get you organized, find the right moving company, set up and conduct your downsizing or living estate sale, make you money through your unwanted items and clean up your home afterward, prepping it for settlement.

Staging the home for sale is a specialty for us. Following the downsizing we set your home up (with the realtor’s input) using your furniture, as possible , and borrowing from our Other People’s Stuff Showroom, adding smalls and decorative accessories as needed to make your home interior POP with design impact! I have a 20 year pro background in design and furnishing-it all comes into play in a staging project.
