This includes:

  1. Working with the family to have everything displayed & arranged for the estate sale.
  2. Creating & placing an ad in the local newspaper advertising the estate sale.
  3. Taking pictures of 8 key items to be shown on the free web pages Kijiji & Used Calgary.

We can arrange for  the property to be evaluated and for a city property report. We also have access to a real estate lawyer who charges a set fee for the legal transaction.

This is to prevent a conflict of interest on our part and to ensure that our efforts are totally directed to the benefit of the client.  Read more….
