Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A. Yes, I keep updated on the changing prioritizing and popular collecting market. I also have extensive experience with people who have ADD and ADHD along with those suffering from depression. I work with other professionals like Lawyers and Doctors and Social Workers. I visit my completion, know that appraised value is for insurance purposes and market value is possibly what the item might sell for. You still have to find that "one" buyer who is willing to pay the asking price for that item.
Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
A. My pricing system is very straight forward. I do like to talk with my clients first and then I visit them at their location approximately for 1 hour. This is required in order to accomplish what they desire. Sometimes the need to charge a prep fee is necessary it greatly depends on the situation, I usually only charge a percentage when conducting and Estate Sale.
Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. As I said before; I enjoy helping people and seeing what they want to accomplish and help to make that happen. The service that ClutterBlasters offers I see as a process which has been with me since a child. Those talents where defiantly what helped to make me successful in corporate; which was in Manufacturing/Operations, Retail, Consulting and Recruitment. It has made the tasks that ClutterBlasters needs to preform much easier to preform and accomplish. I enjoy the work and I believe that is an essential ingredient to this business because the work can be very physical and strenuous. You wear many different hats in the Estate Sale Business and you defiantly have to enjy that. Remember I started ClutterBlasters just for you!

We managed to consolidate all of the physical locations and ended up having a very successful three day Estate Sale.
Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. Ask a lot of questions. Make sure you are comfortable with the person who will perform the major tasks that you have in mind. Make a list of questions that you would like answered before you talk by phone. There are three that I recommend.
1). How long have you been in Business?
2). How many Estate Sale do you do in pone year?
3). Do you have your own Web Site?
Make sure their quote includes all the fees, that there are no hidden costs. The home visit should be FREE!

A. We are able to envision the outcome. What the client wants to accomplish becomes a reality even though sometimes it may even seem impossible. We listen, take a walk through the property and execute a plan..
