THE HAZARDS OF HOARDING

"IT'S NOT SENTIMENT........IT'S SEDIMENT" (E H De Lucia)
Making decisions about "Stuff"...
Purge early....Purge often!!!
What do we do with all that Stuff?!
Marie LeBlanc tells us that during transition times we are faced with what to do with all the years of accumulated personal property that is no longer needed. The professionals at Transitions Liquidation Services can assist you by providing effective advice and services during this stressful time.
TLS provides reliable, high-quality, customized personal property liquidation services, delivered with the highest degree of integrity and empathy, at a time when you may be overwhelmed by life's transitions. Their aim is to provide you with the maximum financial gain in the shortest time.
They utilize a triage method to address items the individual or family is not retaining. Items of value are sold through various outlets including estate or moving sales, private dealer or retail showings, second hand stores, consignment and auction. Often multiple sales outlets are used to maximize the return. Usable items are donated on behalf of the client and a receipt for tax deduction purposes is collected and returned to the client. Lastly, appropriate disposal of items is completed including the removal of hazardous waste materials.
TLS's owner, Marie LeBlanc, earned a BA from the General Motors Institue in Flint, Michigan, and a MBA from Nichols College in Dudley, MA. She worked as Director of North American Sales for various hi-tech manufacturers.
But, when she experienced the stress of spending nights and weekends sorting, packing, selling, and disposing of personal property following the death of a loved one, Marie knew her mission was to lift the same burden from others facing this difficult task. In fact, that's the reason she started Transitions Liquidation Services.
Marie LeBlanc, lives in nearby Harvard, Massachusetts, serves on the Steering Committee of the Women's Business Network, is Secretary of the board of the Women’s Council of Realtors, a member of the publicity committee of the New England Chapter of the National Association of Geriatric Care Managers, and is currently serving as President of the Board of Directors of Fruitlands Museums.
She is an active member of St. Theresa's Parish in Harvard, serving at various times as a greeter, Children's Liturgy Coordinator, coffee shop hostess, and more. The TLS president also volunteers for charity and school functions such as the annual PTA book sale, and the Harvard PTA Fall Gala. In her spare time, she enjoys reading historical novels, spending time at the beach and creating silk flower arrangements.
