When my Mother could no longer live on her own, we were faced with a large split entry ranch crammed full of stuff, as my Mother was a bit of a hoarder. Our ultimate goal was to empty the house and fix it up for rental. Janan helped us sort through everything, saving what was meaningful and helping us make the tough choices about what to discard. She helped us sell furniture and remove what had no value. She helped us with roofing, painting, and plumbing contractors, and when the house was finally ready, found us a management company who took care of finding tenants and takes care of day to day maintenance, as we live quite a distance from the house. Thanks to Janan, we have been receiving rental income from the property for over a year now from a house which initially looked like it would be a huge financial burden. Her work was fantastic, and we never could have done it without her.

As part of a house downsizing effort, Janan organized and ran an online auction for us to get rid of unwanted items from 25 years of accumulating. This included sorting and organizing hundreds of items into strategic lots, taking pictures and uploading, and running a very well organized 10-hour pickup day. Her calming and professional demeanor were key to everything running smoothly. Great service and a lovely lady!

Both of our parents died within two weeks of each other from Covid. After all children took what they wanted, Serene Transitions made the rest so easy. They hired JunkLuggers to take everything out of that apartment and left it lickety split clean and vacuumed. Money very well spent and our backs were saved!

I hired Serene Transitions to manage my move from my house to an apartment. Janan worked quickly and efficiently and was respectful and courteous at all times. The service was performed exactly as described. My belongings were packed professionally and carefully. Serene Transitions significantly reduced my stress before, during and after the move by taking care every detail. Janan went above and beyond to help me adjust to my new home faster, and I am more comfortable in my new home as a result. I am very please that I used Serene Transitions and highly recommend this service.

I’ve worked with Janan and her organizational skills are phenomenal. She has an eye for what needs to be done as well as how it will benefit all parties. Her empathy is her strongest suit - she knows how to help individuals through a difficult situation. Some people equate belongings with self worth and Janan has the patience to sort through those issues.

We used Serene Transitions when our 94-year-old friend Ruthie had to move into assisted living. Ruthie lived in a one-bedroom apartment, and her family only wanted to keep a few personal items. Janan sorted through all of the things that had been accumulated over several decades. I was amazed at how quickly and effectively everything happened. Each room was cleared systematically. Janan sorted through everything and packed up items we donated to Goodwill and bagged items that needed to be recycled or thrown out. There was a common room in the apartment building, where she put items for other residents to take if they could use them. Janan made arrangements for all the furniture to be picked up and moved out. She coordinated with the building manager and president of the association to make sure things were done appropriately. The entire process was seamless and professional. It was an emotional experience, and Janan’s compassionate and professional attitude made the entire process very easy. I recommend Serene Transitions without reservation.
