Estate Sale, Senior Moving, Downsizing Experts of Nashville

Mark and Mary McClure open Caring Transitions office to serve Nashville with Estate Sale, Downsizing and Senior Moving services!

Hello! We're Mark and Mary McClure! During our more than 16 years of living in the Greater Nashville, TN area (specifically, Franklin, in Williamson County) we've seen many friends struggle during stressful and overwhelming times, such as a life changing illness, the death of a loved one or the changing needs of  aging parents. We personally experienced the death of Mark's mom in 2005 and Mary's dad in 2010 and  the subsequent downsizing of the surviving parent. We have experienced what  you are going through! This compelled us to start Caring Transitions, a business that provides help to Seniors and their families needing assistance coping with senior moving, downsizing and estate sales.

Our background, life and professional experiences have uniquely positioned us to serve as your Senior Moving and Transition Specialists! Mark's background in project management and ministry, and Mary's 10+ years of experience as a Realtor, plus her special training as a Certified Relocation and Transition Specialist (CRTS), Professional Stager and Better Business Bureau member (member of ASP and IAHSP and BBB), help ensure that we will act as your onsite advocate, keeping your family’s best interests at heart. Our focus is to minimize your stress and maximize your returns while helping you through a difficult time in your family’s life.

Call us today at (615) 335-6936 to schedule a FREE In-Home Consultation!

What our clients are saying:

"Our home sold in one day thanks to Amy's amazing organizing and staging! THANKS!"

"Again, many thanks for the superb job you did moving Dad to Provision Living. I really appreciate it that you were there for us on such short notice, and that you again managed the project with such professionalism and caring."

 "I don't know how I would have done it without you. I am very grateful!"

 "A big thank you! I love my clean basement!"

"Mom is thrilled with her new apartment and is still marvelling at how quickly and efficiently the transition was managed with your help."

"We would not have had a clue how to do the things that you did in clearing out our father's apartment. It took a load off our family, was prompt and thoughtful, and we thought the price was extremely reasonable."  

"Mark and Mary, Mom sings your praises and that is a blessing!"

"You have our sincere gratitude for the way in which you left the condition of our home after the sale. It was a pleasant surprise to find everything left in a neat and orderly manner."

"Thank you, Mark and Mary, for the help you provided in my recent estate sale. Not only was it profitable but you also made it fun!"

"Thanks for everything! It was a beautiful sale, and we know that Mom would be so pleased!"

What is a CRTS?

 

CRTS™ is more than education or training—it is the most recognized symbol of professionalism and standards in move management, senior relocation and senior transition services.

Certified Relocation and Transition Specialist (CRTS)™ is the only Certification credential in the relocation industry and is much more than a paid membership or certificate. It is a Professional Designation. It is earned.

Certified Transition Specialists are dedicated professionals who provide a spectrum of moving and age-in-place services for senior clients, their families and caregivers.

While there is diversity in services, all CRTS professionals:

  • Provide a home assessment to determine client needs.
  • Create transition timetables.
  • Coordinate resources.
  • Perform or supervise sorting, packing, moving, downsizing, organizing and resettlement services.
