Downsizing is no small feat. There are many steps that need to be taken from sorting through and packing up your belongings to finding a new home and selling your old one.
At Gordon’s, we are here to help, whether it is managing the whole process or helping with just a few of the details.
Here are just some of the many services that we offer to help simplify downsizing, and make the entire process easier for you and your loved ones.

3. Listing Your Home
We are a fully licensed and independent real estate brokerage with a unique outlook on selling your home.
We believe a successful real estate transaction is about education. If you, our customer, are completely up to date and educated on all aspects of the real estate transaction in advance of offers, we can help you prepare your property for sale accordingly and assist you in making the best decision when an offer is presented.
We understand the fine balance between not wanting your home on the market for months and not wanting to sell it for less than it is worth. That is why we go to great lengths to get it right at the outset, with the goal of achieving a firm sale in less than 20 days.
4. Contents Appraisal
When going through a major life transition, you may have to deal with some extra or unwanted assets.
Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services offers certified appraisals, to help you better understand what your assets are worth. We can appraise a variety of property types including antiques, collectibles, farm equipment, art, general merchandise and even commercial assets. Our certified staff members have years of experience providing professional appraisals.
5. Liquidating Unwanted Assets
Once the value of your assets have been determined, we can help manage the distribution, disposal, donation or sale of any extra assets as you wish.
We partner with an online auction service that is a cost-efficient way to sell your extra assets on the internet and do all the work for you, providing you with a detailed, itemized summary of what each item sold for.
