Services for Real Estate Pros with Turning Point Estate Services LLC

Help preparing homes for sale in Fairfield County CT. I feel it important to let the ActiveRain community know what it is we do at Turning Point Estate Services, LLC. We are listed as "Real Estate-Other" so it may not be immediately obvious. At first I was not sure I should be a part of a real estate network group. But, after I met with Dagny Eason a
local Realtor and AR member,  I was convinced we are indeed an interrelated part of the real estate community.

We were founded to provide help to executors, trustees and family members faced with closing down an estate and disbursing the personal property clean outs. Hence the name Turning Point Estate Services. We are also great at situations where a person must be moved to assisted living and the home must be sold to finance the stay. Or, for that matter, any situation where preparing a property for sale is required, and the seller just can't do it themselves.

Often our clients are dealing with an emotional situation. We provide peace of mind and support when we unburden those faced with the overwhelming but necessary tasks they may not want to do. A recent article in the Connecticut newspapers should give you a better idea of what we can do.

I came to AR to let the real estate community know we exist, and to tap the vast AR knowledge base so we may best serve our clients. We know from experience, they will come to you first, desperately seeking your advice on help to prepare a home for sale in Fairfield County CT. We would hope you steer them in our direction.

FYI, if you take a look at our website (thanks for taking the extra step) you will see a reference to real estate brokerage. Initially, we had planned for brokerage to be a part of our comprehensive service package. We quickly learned that you, the real estate professional, do this MUCH BETTER than we can. We now concentrate on working with brokers and sellers to prepare homes for showing and sale. We are still licensed, but refer those inquiry's to the broker with the best local knowledge for the specific property.

We may not be for every transaction, but you will come across situations where one of your clients will need our special expertise. So keep our name on file and tell everyone you know about us. Better yet, shoot me an email or call. We would love to buy you a cup of coffee and discuss how we can add value for you and your clients.

You want a property that is ready to sell, sellers need help preparing properties for sale, we expedite and enjoy the transformation process....

A WIN, WIN, WIN situation.

I wish you were in the Seacoast NH area.  I could use a business like yours to refer my sellers to after I do a home staging consult and leave them with a to-do list that they need help with.

Sharon, perhaps we will expand to NH. I will say after reading many great home stager blogs, I have learned to get the stager involved FIRST. WE can then work together to make a game plan that best suits the client.
