About all sorters
Mary created all sorters to help those faced with a challenging move …
“It can be overwhelming to deal with a whole house with years of possessions and rooms full of memories. Often our clients have tight timeframes, maybe physically challenged, have no family, their family may be remote or have professional commitments”
Mary first went on the downsizing journey with her father Michael …
“Moving my father to aged care was a tough time and then I had to deal with the family home – as my father’s main asset, he needed the best sale price possible. The real estate agent said I achieved an extra 10% for my father because of how our family home was presented. I thought there must be others on the downsizing journey who needed help to move on from their home and deserved the best sale result possible, thus allsorters was born …”
As creator and owner of all sorters, Mary is proud of her exclusive but affordable service and can assure you of independence, privacy and confidentiality. allsorters service quickly expanded to include one-on-one sorting and decluttering assistance for those who want help in their current home.
No matter the situation or property condition, no judgement is passed.
At all times we are totally committed to representing our client’s interests – We look after each home as if it was our own, we achieve maximum result for minimum cost … “It is extremely pleasing that the large majority of the houses we sort and refresh sell quickly and for great prices.”
