Estate sale

We were clearing out our family home, which was an overwhelming tasks. We contacted The Next Step Forward. Clare came and took charge. She guided us through the work required to have items posted on MaxSold, online auction site. She coordinated it all, from researching items at hand, photography and writing description for each lot. We had a total of 153 lots, and sold 151 of them. A tremendous success.

This was all done with professionalism, and she made it all feel seamless.

I will highly recommend The Next Step forward to anyone looking for this type of service.

Kitchen, Closet and Den Re-organization

Since the start of the pandemic, my small apartment has become over-run with too much stuff! I have wanted to organize it all myself, but could not find the time. I literally handed the keys to Clare and Hazel and asked them to work their magic. Not only did they declutter, dispose of all the items in my home I no longer needed, they even assembled all the awesome storage suggestions they sourced for our space. They helped create more room than even know what to do with. This has really improved my wellbeing and mental health - even my relationship! I can breathe and am still discovering all the little touches they so thoughtfully put together for us. Thank you so much for all your hard work and support. Hope to work together again!

Spectacular Service on Every Level, In Every Way

We have nothing but praise and thanks for Clare and The Next Step Forward. Clare was completely professional and skilled in setting up and coordinating our down-sizing online auction on MaxSold, and she was considerate and respectful of the emotional steps we needed to take in order to move forward without anxiety or hesitation. Worth every penny - we had terrific results. We do not hesitate in recommending the services of Clare Platt and The Next Step Forward.

organizing,packing and decluttering

Clare and her team are a pleasure to work with! They are professional and thorough - but still sensitive to the emotional component of dealing with, and letting go of, material things. Would highly recommend!

Decluttering, organizing moves and downsizing.

I have hired Clare and her team at The Next Step Forward several times to help with a move into a new house as well as several decluttering projects. Their work was excellent. The Next Step Forward is prompt in responding to requests and the team works very hard during their time on the job. Clare has great organization skills and a good eye for setting up a room. She is a pleasure to work with and is a good problem solver with many useful suggestions and a network of contacts for any related work needed to be done.

Managing estate contents clearance.

I worked with Claire in cleaning out my mothers home after she had moved. Clare was very knowledgeable & organized throughout the process. She used Max Sold to sell items we were not going to take with us to my mothers new house. She was very thorough, including knowing what would sell, grouping items strategically to generate the most bids & grouping the sold items into lots for pick up so it was streamlined and organized. Many of the purchasers had dealt with estate sales before and commented that this was the most organized and efficient pick up they had experienced! Clare was also very personable and made everybody picking up the item feel that they had made an excellent purchase! Being a realtor it’s also important to me that I have a trusted partners I can refer to clients without hesitation. Clare is someone I would recommend with pleasure & full confidence knowing my clients would be treated with professionalism and care.

Home Move Assistance for my Senior Mother

The Next Step Forward were truly amazing. Clare and her team managed every aspect of preparing my mother’s apartment. From auctioning to junk removal to logistics and the final cleaning. Everything was done with incredible efficiency, respect and care. It would have been a nightmare for me and my family, without Clare running the show. We’re really grateful to have found The Next Step Forward, and recommend them very highly.

Compassionate Help with Downsizing, Decluttering and Creating your new Home.

Clare is fantastic...the ultimate organizer! She is efficient and completely accommodating to all requests (even the really ridiculous ones!) and always with a smile. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Next Step Forward to anyone needing help organizing their household Best decision I ever made in the seemingly unending task of finding homes for my parent's belongings. She helped me to step back from the emotional part of the task and make the best decisions.
