When my mom passed away, I was left to handle her estate and get her apartment sold. It was a two bedroom apartment in a prestigious building, but the apartment had not been updated in decades. Before my accountant introduced me to Jewell, I felt completely overwhelmed and didn’t know how I was ever going to get my mom’s house ready for sale, all while grieving, going to work, and taking care of my children. The house sat for months with no activity.
Hiring Jewell was absolutely the best decision I ever made. She quickly put my mind at ease with her professionalism and calm demeanor and literally took care of everything from the time I handed over the keys. She cleared out the apartment, handled all the donations, met with the contractors, coordinated with the management company, designed and managed the renovation, made all the purchases, and staged it beautifully. I even made a couple thousand dollars from the auction proceeds of some of my mom’s art and collectibles that I had assumed was worthless. It was also nice to be able to go on vacation while all of the work was being done. I didn’t have to lift a finger, and when it was all done, I was able to sell the apartment for almost full price, after receiving multiple offers over just a few weeks.
If you’re a busy person like I am, and you don’t have the time or the desire to manage a renovation or design, then you must hire Jewell. I trust her completely and highly recommend her to friends whenever I can.
