Fairfield County, CT (PRWEB) December 13, 2013
Countless families have found or will find themselves in some version of the following: A beloved parent or friend dies, leaving behind an estate that must be cleaned out, evaluated and sold. On paper, that might seem easy. In real life, especially when one is grieving a loss or wading through family tensions, it may feel insurmountable.
First comes clearing out the property and perhaps, having some items in the home appraised. Then comes marketing and selling the home. Call in the real estate agent, who suggests some repairs and reorganizing that might increase the value. Find and call a qualified person to handle that, and then figure out what to do with the items inside the home itself.
That’s lots of decision-making, phone calls and legwork. New England Real Estate Liquidators, founded this year and serving all of Fairfield County, brings a one-stop shopping approach that, according to co-founder Jack Whitton, includes handling everything from evaluating, staging and marketing a property to appraising valuables to selling an estate and its contents quickly, efficiently and in accordance with family members’ wishes.
“We’re there to support the transition,” he sad. “To get things accomplished efficiently and in a timely manner.”
Co-founders Jack and partner, Megan Whitton, Danbury residents and owners of property management company Peace Of Mind Security Service, Inc., and Keith Evans, a licensed Real Estate Broker in Fairfield County, say they bring their expertise in sales, marketing, home design and property management, as well as a network of professionals, to work for their clients.
“Our new venture is a perfect marriage between Keith Evans Associates, a high-performing real estate team at Keller Williams Realty; and Peace of Mind Security, doing business together as New England Real Estate Liquidators,” says Jack Whitton, adding that the new, multi-faceted business allows clients to solve a variety of liquidation challenges within one professional team of experts.
“We come in and say, ‘here’s what you have.' We catalog everything and even decide where it will go if the client wants to sell these items.”
Adds Whitton, this is often the first step in the process of valuing and disposing of a property. And if attracting a buyer means making changes to the interior and/or “staging” the home, Megan Whitton steps in. With a BFA in fine arts and years of experience, she specializes in staging, reorganizing and making a home as saleable as it can possibly be.
“With care and smart choices of furniture placement and de-cluttering, I can make a home much more desirable to the buyers, and hopefully give them a sense of how the home can work for them,” says Megan. “Often, people can’t see past a cluttered home, and that can be the loss of a sale.”
The aim is to propose and execute a timely, cost-effective marketing and staging plan. Evans, who has more than 20 years’ experience in international business, marketing and real estate, stressed that efficiency and convenience is the primary focus.
“Whatever it is they need and want, we are able to fulfill it, while making the least demands on the client. The clients make the ultimate decisions, but the details are handled for them,” he says.
He adds that New England Real Estate Liquidators has the ability to market effectively through traditional retail channels, as well as to wholesale properties within days, giving its clients the greatest number of options while providing a single solution point to the situation.
Jack Whitton emphasizes that the company strives to get clients to a comfort zone. “We’re property managers who service people,” he says. “We use and have a whole network of people we bring to get the job done.”
