Nashville, Tenn. (Vocus) September 29, 2008
- An entire generation of Baby Boomers now faces the often overwhelming obligation to sort out their parents' estate - and the task can be a crushing one. From identifying items of value and allocating fairly between siblings to organizing a lifetime of bits, pieces and mounting stuff - the Boomer needs help.
Julie Hall, known nationally as "The Estate Lady" and author of the new book "Boomer Burden: Dealing With Your Parents' Lifetime Accumulation of Stuff" , has seen the settlement process unravel from every angle and families fall apart under the pressure. She's seen millionaires fight over Tupperware, seniors fleeced by close friends, and priceless family heirlooms rescued from dumpsters.
Most need professional help - but until now, there has been no one to turn to. Accountants, financial planners, realtors and attorneys can only provide specific expertise.
Hall is a professional estate liquidator and certified property appraiser who has spent seventeen years helping seniors and their children confront the estate planning process. Her mission and company have been touted by major financial gurus, including most recently Liz Weston of the Los Angeles Times.
In 1993 Hall founded The Estate Lady, a limited liability company in Charlotte, NC, that provides comprehensive services for conducting estate sales, personal property appraisals, liquidations and removal of home contents.
With a turnkey process, Hall has the ability to empty the contents of an average estate within three to six working days by appropriately selling valuable contents, donating others or discarding items that can no longer be used. Services and skills are customized for each client's individual situation or professional need.
As the only expert to cover the full gamut of settlement problems and issues, Hall has been commissioned by people around the world to solve the daunting task of clearing their childhood home.
