I have dealt with Carolyn on two occasions and have found her service extremely professional. In both instances I have been under emotional stress and Carolyn has been kind and understanding. She has a wealth of knowledge and we could not have dealt with my Aunt’s estate without her help. Highly recommended.” Shauna


I was so impressed by your knowledge. You have enormous experience in dating and classifying furniture – it was very interesting to hear you point out all the different woods.” Diana


Dana-Leigh and I were impressed by your diligence and professionalism and very much appreciated your explanation of the probate contents’ valuation process.  We knew that it would be quite a task to review and assess Pamela’s possessions.   You did it thoroughly and we could see how exhausted you were by the end of the day. We were especially grateful for your flexibility in rearranging an appointment so that you were able to do the safety deposit box valuation on the only day that James and HSBC could do it and for the speed in which you did the probate valuation of the additional item (the ring). We would be very happy to recommend your services to others.” Regards, David and Dana-Leigh.
