The team handled the entire process - sorting items, disbursing them to the proper parties, and coordinating the vendors involved - which allowed our family to focus on my father's transition. In the end, we were comforted and relieved in knowing that the team handled everything in a thorough, efficient and trustworthy manner. The team surely exceeded our expectations, and I highly recommend their services.

I could not have had a better experience with Kim or Simply Sized Home. She came into a very stressful and sad situation -- our having to sell our treasured family compound after 45 years of ownership and memories -- and made the move out as seamless as possible. I live in NYC, which made it difficult to manage the move, and the sale of many items, from afar. But Kim stepped in and took care of EVERYTHING so I didn't have to worry. She helped me decide what to keep, what to sell, and what to give away. She and her crew packed up the saved items and got them into storage, and sold the things we couldn't keep. She worked with grace and kindness with every member of our family, our realtor, and with the caretaker of the house. I simply can't rave enough about Kim. She made a terribly difficult situation a pleasurable experience. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Absolutely the best. Liz and Troy are now almost like members of our family. They were so helpful in making difficult decisions on what to take, sell, or toss. Our move was to North Carolina, and because of my wife being disabled, I never could have accomplished the move by myself. Liz and Troy went out of their way to accommodate our special needs, and we were able to go to North Carolina and leave them in charge of coordinating the actual move with the moving company. Everything arrived beautifully packed, and absolutely nothing was damaged or broken. I highly recommend Simply Sized Home: they are a competent, trustworthy, and knowledgeable company that will make downsizing and or relocating as painless as possible.

The folks at SSH were instrumental in making it happen smoothly and with as little heartache as a move like that can have! They helped with EVERYTHING, from organizing, packing, carting stuff away to consignment and donation, scheduling refinishing of furniture and rug cleaning (and following up with vendors when there were problems). They recommended vendors and helped facilitate interactions with them. All the while, demonstrating patience, professionalism and humor. Going in, my husband thought their rates were high, but ended up feeling like they were more than worth the price! Moving (especially downsizing) is chaotic and Simply Sized Home was instrumental to getting it done well. We highly recommend them!
Kim, Liz and Troy did a great job of organizing the process and getting everything ready for the move. Every item had to be either tagged for one of the three locations or disposed of, so the organization was critical. I did not feel comfortable with a traditional moving company working through all of the details, but they did a great job.
They also communicated very effectively, which was crucial given that we were 700 miles away. We did a room by room video walk through, and then they were available by email or phone throughout the process. They coordinated cleanup, dump runs, giveaways, and the moving company. We were much more comfortable that everything would be taken care of correctly since we could not oversee everything.
In the end, clearing out the house went smoothly and on time. We were so pleased with working with Simply Sized Home, that they now take care of our current home in Maine when we are are gone for long periods. Great communication and people you can trust.

Kim and Liz and SimplySized home approached the challenge of each project with patience, a can-do attitude, and real solutions.
My parent's house was 5000 +square feet. SimplySized sorted heirlooms, family memorabilia, items for auction, Goodwill and more. Kim and Liz handled everything. From hiring moving vans to fan out across the country, sorting, photographing and distributing objects for family, for sale, and for the dump; the family felt taken care of. When the house was emptied, Simplysized home collaborated with the Realtor to make a beautiful house show to its full advantage leading to a quick sale.
Within a year, Simplysized home was assisting my family to prepare an old farmhouse for the market. With sensitivity and a practical sense of easy solutions, Simplysized home made an enormous task manageable. Painting contractors were found. Carpeting, cleaning and staging were all achieved quickly.
The first family to see our house made an offer.

Liz and Troy visited with me and my wife to learn about our needs and preferences. Next, we scheduled a time for Troy to work with me to segregate items by destination. Due to my personal scheduling conflicts, we had to reschedule twice, and Troy was very accommodating.
My goal was to find a way to repurpose as much of the items as possible and Troy completely understood and accepted the goal and challenge.
Once we got together, Troy worked diligently to identify destinations and worked tirelessly loading his vehicle. Next, he listed every single item by its destination, description and date and obtained the necessary supporting documentation. I'm an accountant and I can attest that the listings are excellent for use in preparing the tax return, if appropriate; otherwise, it can serve as an excellent record for dissemination among family members.For items sold, Troy provided all necessary information and alerted venders with payment information. Lastly, the fee for services was very fair.
I would highly recommend Simply-Sized Homes to anyone in need of downsizing with compassion.

They are true professionals and are also incredibly delightful people. They sorted through all the boxes and cupboards that seemed never-ending and organized all of the items from tea cups to family photos to furniture and contacted their sources on our behalf. What a relief for my family. I can't imagine taking on such a project with calling SimplySized Home.

We called a number of other organizers and no one offered such comprehensive services which they will customize to your needs.
We needed to prepare our home for sale and had years' worth of possessions to sort in order to prepare to move. SimplySized Home made what seemed an impossible task possible. They worked at our pace. I cannot say enough positive things about how they helped us. They even assist in finding sources for sale or donation of items whether valuable heirloom items or junk.
We could not have done it without them.
