I am referring all my friends to Caring Transitions.  Phillip and his team went above and beyond for our family in our time of need.  The house and belongings were treated with utmost care and respect.

I had an excellent experience.  This took a load of pressure off my wife.  I plan to refer you to others.  When I have to do this again I will call only your company.  I know what to expect!

CT was very helpful during our period of loss.  Their expertise and connections made our transition process smoother and less stressful.

Phillip and his team addressed and solved our every need in Mom's estate sale. They were competent, compassionate, and invaluable to us during a most difficult time.  Given our excellent rating of Caring Transitions (10 out of 10) will surely encourage our eldercare attorney to direct others your way.

"Caring Transitions" provided an invaluable service for my family. We were in a difficult situation without family members nearby to handle the preparation of our mother's home for sale. Phillip Sweat was able to conduct an estate sale, donate items to charity and clear out and clean the house without a hitch. All through the process he was in constant communication with us and our real estate agent. My brother and I are more than pleased with the work he has done. I recommend "Caring Transitions" wholeheartedly.

Thank you so much for all that you have done for us! This whole process is just the worst, but you and your company provided an invaluable service. Leslie and I are very thankful that we were able to trust you with all of Mom's things and help us transition on to the next phase. Thank you again!

In March 2011 I contacted Phillip because my mother wanted to downsize from a 3100 square foot home to an apartment. The house was filled to the top with things from thirty years ago to present. Phillip was so easy to work with and kept me informed of the progress almost daily. He ran a very professional job and conducted a very successful estate sale. After the sale, his team packed up items for charity pick-up and coordinated all of the details.  Phillip’s cost estimate was spot–on as well. Phillip and his team got the enormous job done in a short amount of time and were very thorough. I could not have done all of that work on my own and he made my life a lot easier in dealing with my mother’s transition into another living space. I had contacted several businesses for this job and I am so glad that I chose Caring Transitions. In closing, I would highly recommend Phillip and Caring Transitions to any potential client.

We were exasperated when we called Phil Sweat. Months had passed since my Dad’s passing and there was just so much stuff that he had accumulated; we were tired and simply didn’t know how to deal with it. Phil came in and helped by organizing and conducting the estate sale. We didn’t even have to be there during the sale! Phil’s estate sale cleared out most of the house. The sale proceeds covered Caring Transitions expenses and injected much needed cash into the estate account. Phil offered additional service in a no-pressure but friendly and helpful way. However, the estate sale cleaned out the bulk of the items leaving a much more manageable situation that we were able to complete on our own. Thanks Phil.

When we decided to sell our home and downsize, we found the best plan for us was an estate sale. Phillip at Caring Transitions patiently answered all of our questions and explained everything we needed to know. The Caring Transitions team came in and did a wonderful job. They were professional, pleasant and went above and beyond to insure our satisfaction. We highly recommend Caring Transitions to anyone wanting to have an estate sale.

My mom and myself want to personally thank you and your team for doing such an excellent job in selling everything in our house. You are so professional and we enjoy working with you. It was a stressful time having my dad gone. But you are so caring and it was such a pleasure doing business with you and your team. My mom is coping and she is getting use to the area up here. All the best for you and your family. Thanks again.

I would highly recommend Caring Transitions/Phillip Sweat. I hired the company to assist with an office relocation which also involved selling used office furniture and equipment. In a very short time, Phil was able to sell virtually all of the items I wished to dispose of and made a tax-deductible donation to charity with the few remaining items. Phil did an excellent job of valuing and marketing the items. In addition, he coordinated licensed and insured movers and was in contact to make sure they arrived on time and performed satisfactorily. All this was done for a very reasonable fee and commission. Caring Transitions certainly made the relocation a lot less stressful!
