Testimonials

Moving is always a challenge and downsizing can add an emotional component that at times seems overwhelming.
Deb and her staff were professional, competent,respectful and most importantly cheerful throughout the adventure.
When commitment is the focus of service, I would not hesitate to recommend "Allies in Downsizing"

- Dr. John & Diane 

Debby was a tremendous help to us when we had to move our mother into a nursing home. We don’t know what we would have done without her organization and motivation to go through the entire house and remove everything we didn’t need. She made it easy to decide what to keep and what to get rid of.

 

She gave us great tips as to how to sell, gift and donate the items. She made several trips to the antique dealers, value village, consignment stores and even the dump to recycle our unwanted items.

Debby at Allies in Downsizing is cheerful, caring, thoughtful and sensitive to our feelings and the emotion it took to move our mother just after the passing of our father.
 

She is focused & thorough and we were very happy with her results. It is our pleasure to recommend Debby to anyone else looking to downsize and move their parents.

- Jeff & Lynne, Adult Children
 

Debby, thank you for all your help. As a POA, there is so much involved when managing a senior with failing health. Time was of the essence and due to my heavy workload; it proved to be too much. You wasted no time packing, selling off the contents of her home, moving & even unpacking a very dear family friend.

 

You sprang into action once again, when I had to call on your services to move her to 24 hour care in such a short period of time.

 

I would highly recommend your company to anyone needing your services in the future.

- Allan, Power of Attorney

So happy to take this opportunity to tell you how pleased we were with the help you gave us when we decided to downsize and move.  We sure sorted through a ton of stuff and got things ready for a garage sale which, I will say, was most successful.  Also the items we took to the antique dealer, at your suggestion, was an excellent idea and, although it is hard to let things go, it definitely was time.  Your help with the actual move made things so much easier. Thanks again.

- Janice, Recently Downsized

We recently downsized from our house of 28 years to a 2 bedroom apartment. We had a lot of stuff to get rid of. Debby got busy! Planning our garage sale, took pictures of items to be picked up from Restore - donations for Habitat for Humanity and took trips to Value Village. She helped us sort through several items and was a big help on moving day, organizing all the helpers and movers for us. She even came to our new place and helped get us settled in. Thanks so much! We couldn't have done it without you.

Debby, I can’t thank you enough. You have certainly gone above and beyond for me. The extra mile! You are so fast and efficient, definitely the hardest worker I’ve seen. I appreciate everything you have done. If I need to do any more downsizing, I will be sure to call you again.

- Virginia, Recently Downsized

Hi Debby,  I just wish to thank you for all your efforts in assisting my mother in moving.  It was a very trying time for my mother and your assistance helped my sister and I immensely.    You were always professional and showed a lot of patience dealing with our elderly parent.  Again, thank you.

- Joanne, Adult Child

I hired Debby to help me clean out my parents house after they had passed away.  I had attempted to do this on my own for months with very little progress.  Debby came in and organized everything within a couple of weeks.  She gave me tips on what to sell, keep and donate, arranged for charitable pick up, made trips to value village and so much more.   She has cultivated relationships with resale, consignment, antique stores in the city so she knew exactly where to take each item.  I actually sold more items through Debby’s connections than I did at my garage sale!

Debby is friendly, trustworthy and honest.  She maintained constant communication regarding her schedule and what was going where.  I wasn’t always present yet I was always made aware of what was going on.

Thank you Debby for all your hard work and especially your patience.  I couldn’t have done it without you.

- Julie, Adult Child

Debby took care of everything.  Her knowledge  and caring manner made it easier to sort thru all the clutter.  Debby went over and above to remove  and disperse  the unwanted items, either by using her many contacts, donating or taking to the dump.

Debby made a difficult job easy for me and I would recommend Allies in Downsizing to anyone needing help to downsize.

- Dorothy, Recently Downsized

I recently used Allies in Downsizing in my move from a large three bedroom into a much smaller location. Debby was invaluable in helping to dispose of items in appropriate ways,whether it was to thrift stores,or to consignment shops or in the case of the real dregs, just cheerfully taking it away to dispose of.

She has a wealth of information to assist one,while at the same time not applying pressure or making one feel rushed or intimidated into letting things go.

I would recommend her services with confidence.
