The loss is immeasurable... but so is the love left behind

Settling the Estate after a Loved One Passes

Estate Closure

When a loved one passes away, the task of clearing their home and settling the estate can seem unbearable.
We understand. Our empathetic team provides a listening ear when you need it most…and professional, knowledgeable, efficient service to help preserve your family’s legacy.

It begins with a complimentary consultation to discuss the estate and your plans for the future. Perhaps the home will need to be completely cleared, repaired and staged to achieve full market value when selling. Or family members may retain the home, but need assistance with organizing, liquidating assets, and reducing clutter. Deciding what to keep and what to sell or discard can be overwhelming, but with the right help, you will get through it.

Our Transition lawyers can help you through the probate process and other legal and tax matters involved in settling the estate.

Our Mission is to cushion the grief, stress and hard work that is often associated with estate clearing. We will help you navigate this difficult time with the utmost respect and discretion.

My parents suddenly passed away within months of each other. My sisters live out of province and going into the home, was just too painful, let alone the thought of packing and selling the house by myself. My lawyer, Crys was an angel, helping me through the execution of the estate and recommended that I contact the Transition Network for help with the house.  I'm so glad that I did! Mary, Pat and Jacquie took care of literally everything! I just handed over the keys, and they packed, purged, repaired and staged. The house was sold within a few days for more than I had imagined. My sisters were happy and I don't know what I would have done without the help!
