I found Silver Concierge via the Free Index website when I was looking for House Sitters but saw that this business offered a wider range of services including decluttering and tradesmen. I was feeling desperate as I had no-one to help me with my late father’s bungalow in Sale after a pipe burst. Three rooms were very badly affected with ceilings down in the kitchen and dining rooms and damaged in the lounge, plaster had been removed down to the brickwork in all three rooms, the kitchen units and appliances were unsalvageable, the boiler had burst, the electrics had had water running through them. Plus carpeting and flooring had been ruined throughout the house. A huge project and the property had been affected more than I had initially realised. I live in Sutton, Surrey and knew that I would have very limited time available myself due to family commitments.
Using Silver Concierge made it easier to cope with the disposal of my parents’ effects and personal items (they are members of APDOuk) and handle the probate process in what had been our family home. Louise found the builders, sourced the kitchen and flooring and project managed the property from repair through to home staging and selling. The house was offered at its top valuation and received 2 offers from 3 viewings – helped by the level of finish and the home staging in a difficult housing market.
I was only able to make 3 site visits to the property during the project and using Silver Concierge services saved me time, money and stress. On a personal level Louise is superbly honest and assertive and knows when to be tactful, compassionate and friendly and she has an excellent network of tradesmen and professional contacts. If you need someone to be clear headed, well organised and focussed then choose Louise. I feel I have learned a lot from her and only wish we lived near each other because I would employ her to keep my own household in better shape! I will be buying her forthcoming publication.
