Starting.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I am leaving the antique gallery where I have a space at the end of next month. Long story short the building was sold and while the owner is giving my boss several more months, she is leaving shortly and didn't tell anyone. It is a big job to liquidate the thousands of items I have but yesterday, I started in earnest to take things out. The most difficult part of any task is just to start it.

I am sad but resolute. I will do something everyday and have someone move the big stuff at the last moment. That's my story. Have a good day.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

It's just like you tell your sellers - pack up one thing at a time, one room at a time! And, you're so right, Sheila, it's the getting started that is the tough part when it comes to moving. Good luck!

Thanks very much Debe. It makes me sad to have to bring these things home. I really hoped someone would want them to enjoy another life. TY    Sheila

Hey, how about posting a few pictures. If you're not opposed to shipping, maybe some Rainers would take them off of your hands - including paying for shipping!

Hello Sheila - it's a big job but not one that is unconquerable with a plan.  Good luck.

Is it possible to have a sidewalk sale? You would probably get rid of a lot.

Just a thought...

Hi Sheila- it will get done. If you look at the whole picture, it seems daunting but break it down in sections or whatever will work for you.

Several years ago, I knew an owner of an antique mall here in the greater Sacramento region.  For one reason or another he decided to move the operation to another location.  I remember him being quite stressed at the time.

Morning Sheila.

You summed it up when you said, you took that first step.  The other steps will be easy.

Hi again Myrl. I'm not moving again. I'm done. The tool was taken out of my hands and the lack of notice isn't nice or fair. TY    Sheila
