A good place to start is with items that hold little emotional value but take up a lot of space. The den, kitchen and closets are where we tend to accumulate a lot of stuff we might not need going forward.

Start making some decisions about:

  • What to donate
  • What to sell
  • What to pass on to family

But before you do that, talk to a professional who can assess what has monetary value. You'll want to hire someone who can be completely objective about your possessions but also compassionate about what has meaning for you.


  Marion helped us purchase our dream home and we are very thankful for all her hard work and devotion to us. We relocated from Montreal to the GTA and Marion was accommodating to all our needs. Whenever we were in town, Marion made herself available and when we were out of town, she sent us updates on new and existing listings. Although we had an idea where to look, she helped us find our home in an area we didn't even consider. She listened to all our needs and presented us with all our options. Marion’s professionalism, commitment and willingness to go above and beyond is a testament to her dedication to her clients. We send our sincerest gratitude to Marion for helping us find our family home!
