WHAT do we do

Estate Property Services

The reasons many of our clients contact us is varied, one common thread is emotion:
Moving  can be a stressful process,
–  whether it is by choice or for unexpected reasons,
–  how do you decided what to take and not take?
–  what do you do with everything that isn’t going with you?
Or the sadness of losing a family member or friend
–  being overwhelmed with the task of sorting through
possessions and property
–  the volume of decisions that need to be make.

Whether it’s the family home, a unit, villa, or a room in a nursing home Estate Property Services is experienced and can provide expert advice with time saving assistance in sorting through the property.

More Details:

  • Moving into retirement accommodation – we will work with you to sort through possessions, helping you with downsizing decisions, sorting through what you want to keep and what you don’t.  We can even sit down with you and your new floor plan and work with you to decide what will fit and where it can go, making it easier to decide what to take or not take.
  • Deceased Estates,  in communication with you, we will sort through possessions, locating items being bequeathed , looking for important documents, we can pack up what is being kept and if needed make arrangements for these items to be sent to you.
  • Sell, donate, recycle or dispose unwanted items.  For those things you don’t wish to keep there are different options:   SellDonate, Recycle or Dispose.
    While the main aim is to have nothing left at the end, we will endeavour to throw out as little as possible.  Making the most of on-line selling & garage sale (where premises permit), plus working with local charitable organisations & second-hand dealers so your unwanted items can be valued, used and appreciated by others.
  • Stage home (optional)  If selling the property is your plan, then we can either empty the home to present it clean & tidy.  Or if you would prefer we can style the home in a simple & uncluttered manner using existing furniture and fittings.  Then work with your chosen real estate agent if required.
  • Ongoing maintenance (optional)  While the home is on the market we can either maintain the lawns/gardens for you or provide a list of local lawn care companies to choose from.
  • Anything else?  Is there anything else you need help with while settling your relative’s property, all you have to do is ask and we’ll see what we can do.

WHO are we

Estate Property Services is Debbie & Ian Lowth.

Entrusting us to help out at this emotional time of change in your life will mean working with a business who is known for their integrity, honesty, reliability and respect.

Personally, we know what it is like to sort through a parent’s possessions after they have moved into a nursing home and then when they’ve passed away.  We know that this process of sorting through a lifetime of possessions and memories, and deciding what to do with it all can be stressful, emotional and difficult.

Add to this, the complication of not living in the area.  Trying to find the time in your busy schedule to travel (sometimes many hours) to deal with the family estate is hard   –    this is where we come in…!

Since starting our business in 2017, we have helped & worked with many clients.  We have worked with people downsizing from large family homes to retirement villas;  from villas into aged care rooms;  cleared out deceased estates from nursing home rooms, villas, family homes and hoarder properties;  and pretty much everything in between.  The common message at the end of each job – “we couldn’t have done this without you, thank you.”

You let us know exactly what you need, and we will work with you to get it done.  Email or call us to discuss what you need, so we can help.

Testimonials

We have had the privilege of helping many people since we started our business in 2017.  Here are some of the many encouraging & grateful comments we have received from our clients…

from Fiona Campbell

“The services provided by Debbie & Ian were outstanding and we would recommend them without hesitation!
Where does one start when in the position of needing to sort through a loved family member’s accumulation of possessions gathered over a lifetime, an overwhelming and daunting task, complicated further as we live interstate.
Building a rapport with Debbie & Ian from the first meeting was easy as negotiations were conducted with care, sensitivity, respect and dignity,
values which clearly followed through to every aspect of the estate clearance process including dealings with those they came into contact with and the coordination of redistributing our loved family member’s possessions.
Regular updates via phone and email were invaluable in managing the process from interstate and possessions were sold or redistributed ethically and creatively with the aim to throw away as little as possible.
We found Debbie & Ian to be extremely trustworthy and their services are of exceptional value. The catch cry from my family when there is mention of sorting, downsizing or estate clearance will be “You need a Debbie and Ian!”
We cannot thank Debbie & Ian enough and they’re worth their weight in gold.”

from Doris and John Pearson

“We recently moved from NSW to Tasmania.  Debbie & Ian were invaluable when it came to sorting & packing our home.  They were friendly, very efficient and we would recommend their assistance to anyone thinking of moving.”

from Geoff and Anne Emms

“Estate Property Services, Debbie & Ian, provided an excellent service for us in clearing out and organising the living, and onto deceased, estate for our sister and sister-in-law.  What commenced as removing her surplus possessions after her move from her retirement villa into residential care, moved onto clearing out her residential care room and her retirement villa after her death.
Ian and Debbie were excellent in dealing with the rapidly changing situation, and ensuring possessions were quickly and securely managed.  None of the immediate family were in the area so this was of tremendous support.
We were really impressed with the way they arranged for possessions to be recycled, sold where possible, or donated to charity where applicable.  Dealing with medical equipment for us was also extremely helpful.
Thank you for your excellent and thoughtful support in what is a trying time for all.  We would highly recommend this service.”

from Tony and Kathy Ivits

“Thank you again for your hard work and diligence.  You are very well organised and very honest.”

from John Prosser

I employed Estate Property Services to prepare my Aunt’s home for sale.  She was a lifelong hoarder and absolutely filled her two-storey house with 90years of accumulating, the quantity of things was overwhelming.  Ian and Debbie tackled the enormous task in hand very professionally.  They communicated with me throughout the assignment with ongoing advice on costs and details that required consideration.  They completed the whole undertaking within the agreed timeframe and very much to my total satisfaction.  They were cost effective and provided a report indicating what had been achieved.  I cannot recommend Estate Property Services more highly.
