It was a pleasure working with you. You were so helpful to me during a very difficult time. Your professionalism was first rate! Thank you so much!
Theresa, thank you very much for all of your hard work. You are a Godsend. It is great to be able to work with you during such a difficult time. You helped us move a mountain, and we are very grateful.
Theresa gave my 89 year old Dad and his best friend, both recently widowed, a Zoom meeting on how to better manage the overwhelming paperwork and mail situation piled up on tables and in boxes. Theresa was very well prepared regarding his habits and challenges, and listened as he talked through his procedures to identify problem points. She offered a very simple adjustment, not radical changes, which he was agreeable to, and told me what simple task I (as an out-of-state child) needed to do to get him started.
She knows how to talk to seniors, very sharp to identifying excuses and gently calling him out with a question or suggestion aimed at solving the problem. Very satisfied with her empowering him to regain control of his mail and bills (and hopefully seeing the end of piles of unopened mail). Thank you VERY MUCH Theresa!
What outstanding service! I cannot say enough about how much less stressful it was having Theresa and her team coordinate and handle my mother's move from independent living to assisted living. Theresa made all the arrangements, provided guidance and was a true emotional support during this challenging time. My mother was thrilled with the experience because she did not have to lift a finger to pack, unpack and settle in to her new apartment.
Thank you, Theresa, for getting my aunt set-up in her new apartment. This was the second time you helped, and we have not even met you! It helps to have someone you trust working with you when you cannot be there in person.
Theresa is my hero!
She came highly recommended by a friend. I had a relatively short period of time to move out of state after the sale of my house. Theresa not only arranged to sell my furniture and other items, she also provided top notch resources for the move. Everyone was professional, polite & caring. My stress level was greatly reduced by her involvement. The move went smoothly with no issues. I highly recommend Theresa!!
Theresa and her team did a fantastic job working with my wife in the planning and organizing of the move for my 94-year old mother-in-law, who was resistant to leave her condo for an apartment in a senior living complex. Theresa, her team, and the movers; she recommended, were compassionate, professional, and through during the entire process. We could not have done this move without Theresa’s help. Thank you!!!
As the executor of my Mom’s estate, one of my biggest tasks was figuring out how to move her furniture, artwork and personal items out of her two-bedroom apartment in a retirement community in Novi, MI to various local charities, and arranging for the shipping of designated gifts to her out-of-state family and friends. And I live in Colorado. Given my hesitancy to travel 1,300 miles during a pandemic, I desperately needed someone on the ground to make this happen – and in short order. I was relying upon a close family friend locally to perform light-duty tasks, but the scope of the entire job was clearly too much to ask of her. Then I heard about Simplify It, LLC. and Theresa Brune.
After a brief conversation with Theresa, my life suddenly became much easier, and I could now envision a successful outcome without my need to travel. Theresa acted as an onsite general contractor dealing with planning and scheduling as well as engaging her proven and vetted vendors for moving and shipping. She also welcomed the involvement of our family friend to handle and assist with certain tasks. I now had a great team.
Being so far away, I really appreciated Theresa’s ‘no-surprises’ approach to the job. She provided very timely and regular communication; helped me with the dos and don’ts of such a move; and acted as an effective liaison between me and the movers and shipper. And not to mention help with the final walkthrough and turnover of the apartment keys. An all-round highly professional approach. Job Well Done!
Lastly, I feel I received far more value from Theresa’s services than what she charged. Honestly, I had expected to pay more for such a complete, professional, and successful outcome. Theresa certainly relieved my uncertainties, reduced my time, avoided aggravation, and provided more time for me to tend to other estate administrative matters. I would highly recommend her professional services without any reservation to anyone needing this type of assistance.
Theresa is amazing! We have been in FL and needed to move out of our house in New Rochelle NY and put everything in storage as we figure out next steps. Theresa explained to us the pros/cons of various storage options and then proceeded to call around to various companies to assess their abilities to execute our move and storage requirements. She helped us zero in on one company in particular and helped us manage through every detail of the process including understanding the various insurance options, vetting the quote, etc. If you’re looking for white glove service, I couldn’t recommend her more!!
We could not have asked for or hoped to find a better person to help us with moving our Aunt. You know what you are doing, you know what to ask, and you know how to get it done!! You also know how to jump through all of the "Hoops" at the community my Aunt lives in, and you have the right connections within this community.
We cannot imagine in the middle of this Pandemic how things could have gone any better for anyone in our position - being in Florida and our Aunt being in Michigan. Your expertise in going through paperwork and deciding what was important to send to us in Florida was on target as was the floor plan for our Aunt's new room. You chose the perfect items for her in our absence. We also appreciate that you had a buyer for her vehicle, and that you were able to get this whole Project completed in two days.
Thanks to you and your staff for making a difficult Project seamless for us.
You took on a mammoth undertaking–clearing out a house full of sixty years of memories and possessions. And you became a family member to us.You offered solutions to problems. you demonstrated a “can do” attitude right from the start, and looked after every detail, putting us both completely at ease. Our trust in you was one hundred percent. We don’t know what we would have done without you. You helped make a sad, difficult and overwhelming situation into one that was meaningful to us on many levels
Theresa helped move my 90-year old mother from an assisted living residence in Southfield to a home for the elder in Farmington Hills. My mother had been hospitalized at the time, and the move involved packing, disposing some items to charity, and re-installing the remainder. The move went flawlessly, perfectly, on time, in one piece, with little stress or strain. Ms. Brune brings a type of understanding to her work that I associate with administrators and top managers.
My friend’s condo was in a complete shambles. You were able to sift through mountains of junk, sort out the desirable from the undesirable, organize all items into categories, and arrange everything neatly on shelves, in closet and in boxes.
If anyone is ever to consider hiring you they should know that, in addition to your ability to take a mess and make it a success, you definitely have a gift for adapting and providing solutions that fit the personal needs of the situation.
I appreciate you taking the time to speak to the seniors of my district about clutter and being more organized. Many of them approached me afterwards to tell me how your talk had really got them thinking and motivated them to make some changes with their own clutter.The event was an overwhelming success thanks to your involvement. More than 350 senior citizens attended.
