We were delighted with the service that Patti Priestman and her team at Home Suite Home Transitions provided. We had an estate property in Ontario that we needed to prepare for sale. This was very difficult because we are in British Columbia, and could not travel to Ontario during the COVID-19 pandemic. Patti and her team jumped in and provided skilled and experienced service. They secured the home, sorted and inventoried the contents, and sent us photographs so we could decide what to do with them. They made arrangements to send some of the contents to us in BC, sell others through an online auction, and donate or dispose of the remainder. They also helped deal with the realtor, organized the cleaners, and looked after all the other details that needed to be taken care of.
Throughout this process, Patti and her team were incredibly responsive, professional and efficient. Patti also dealt very compassionately with our family member who was transitioning to a retirement facility. We could not have been more pleased with the service. Many thanks Patti!

Patti and her crew have an excellent organizational strategy which helped me greatly through a rough stretch that included a move that I found overwhelming and difficult. They helped me look at my things from different perspectives and once I arrived at the categories that mattered to me they efficiently got things put together for my ease of use and found homes for the things it was time for me to let go of.
I would certainly recommend Home Suite Home Transitions and will be happy to use them again myself.

My mother and I had a very positive experience with Home Suite Home Transitions. A herculean task, we were moving my mother from a 3 bedroom home where she had lived for over 40 years to a 2 room suite. Patti and her team knew exactly what to do....
Patti and her team at Home Suite Home Transitions are absolute professionals and absolute life savers! During a difficult time in which we had to downsize and move our parents out of their long time home due to sudden medical reasons. Patti and her team made the move and downsizing manageable and pleasant. All the details were handled with care, discretion and sensitivity and turned what at first seemed like a daunting task into a manageable and well handled move.
Honestly I don't know what we would of done without Patti and her team at Home Suite Home Transitions! Thank you!

I frequently think of Patti and her team at HSHT and wonder how I would have ever been able to make the move from our home of 30 years to a much smaller condo, without her! HSHT helped us orchestrate the move from start to finish with expertise, efficiency, caring, respect and an amazing calmness... qualities that are seldom all found in a business. They helped to prepare our house for sale, managed a very successful online auction and packed and unpacked. What a marvel to arrive at our new home to find ...
These phenominal women .... When our real estate agent suggested Home Suite Home Transitions I was ready for any kind of help. Anything was better than going in circles and worrying about getting nowhere! I had no idea of what to do. Patti broke everything down to me and made it all happen with ease and affordably. She gave me things I could do on my own - and gave help when I needed it.
When these phenominal women came to take away donations. I have never seen people work so fast and efficiently! This old lady was totally gob smacked! I can not say enough about how pleased I was. I just can not believe at my age their work ethics! Being a senior and I think for many other seniors this company has to be considered an A+.
Do yourself a favor and call them!

-we were happy to rehome your beautiful donations back into our community. We delivered many of your quality items to people moving from a local Youth Shelter into an apartment. Other items went directly into a local womens shelter, and habitat for humanity. Your prestine hardcover books were welcomed by the library.
It is hard to know where to start when saying how much help you gave me. I know I couldn't have done it without you. I was comfortable with Patti when I first met her. So we had a good starting point. All the staff know what they are doing. Denise helped me reduce, reduce reduce! She was really thoughtful and wouldn't let me physically do too much, she would jump in - which helped me save my energy. I would have kept far too much, far more than I really needed. Denise was able to gently remind me of what I would really need, rather than leave me focused on what I thought I could take - but may never need or use (afterall I haven't been using it in my apartment). I did keep some items I couldn't part with and Denise supported me in those decisions. And now that I am settle in at Kawartha Heights Retirement I know I,we, made the right decisions.
HSHT staff know what they are doing. I suggest anyone who needs any kind of help with decluttering and moving call Patti first! Do it, make your move before you HAVE to! (or health issues force you to).

Thank you for all your help during my recent move!! You helped me get dif of what I didn't need and you and Denise were very efficient at packing up what I did need. Thanks, too, for the unpacking in the new apartment.
It really reduced my stress and my family stress! Getting rid of stuff made all the difference!
Thank You Again!

This story began with John and I attending a senior's show. While we were there, a seminar was ofered which caught our attention. It was all about De-cluttering and downsizing. "Yup - Someday we may need something like that. But not right now, we're not ready yet!" It was an interesting session, given by Patti, of "Home Suite Home". We liked her and her ideas, but still not ready yet... We kept her card, just in case...
A few weeks later, at the request of our children, we checked out some senior residences. Again, "just in case", because we still weren't ready. Some residences did tweak some interest - we weren't seriously considering, --- were we?? Other "just in case" and "we aren't ready yet" people had put their names on waiting lists. You know, Just In Case!! As the next chapter of our lives unravelled, we suddenly became very grateful to be on that list --reality and health issues were ...
Thanks Patti and Team
You were great! Everything we had hoped for. I will certainly recommend you.

Thank you again to HSHT. You made a difficult situation for my Mother and Father so much smoother. All the staff shared humor with my folks and kept them calm. My brother and sister agree that we made the best decision to have Home Suite Home spearhead this move (rather than us clashing with Dad who thought he could to do everything himself). We put complete trust and confidence in your team and they did not disappoint! Having everything unpacked and set up the same day as the move was quite a relief. My folks were happier than I have seen them in a while.
I hope the Shaughnessy testimonial helps get the word out how HSHT is helping families – the parents and their kids!
All the best,
Mark, Lori, Mike, Tom
Although the auction did not go as well as planned, I wanted you to know
that I did appreciate the service and that I was glad that I chose Home
Suite Home Transitions to settle my mother's estate.
Your methods and approach to the business were exemplary and if I were in a
position again to avail myself of your services, I would definitely do so.
Thanks again (belatedly),

I was completely overwhelmed knowing I was moving out of our 4 bedroom home into a tiny apartment. I would lay awake at night wondering what to do. All of a sudden, at 5 am, Patti`s voice came over the radio advertising Home Suite Home Transitions and answering my prayers! What a relief and blessing Patti and her team have been. Thank you for making my move so stress free and fun!!! Yes, it was fun!
