It’s a practical ‘How to’ manual that steps you through the practical issues
Moving at any time is likely to be a stressful activity. Especially when the move may require downsizing & sorting through many years of memories & collectables. So Belinda’s book is not only a great guide to anyone about to embark upon this move, but it’s a practical ‘How to’ manual that steps you through the practical issues. If you’re contemplating such a move soon, make it easy & read Belinda’s book first.

What a wonderfully practical book full of excellent tips and strategies
What a wonderfully practical book full of excellent tips and strategies to embrace the next stage of life. Belinda has captured the essence of what holds most people back from “Rightsizing” their home and given us the tools and motivation to overcome the obstacles with ease. Well worth reading.

The book acts as a guide, a coach and checklist
I have heard it said many times if you want to get a job done, give it to a busy person. Belinda has achieved all this because of her organised approach. Her system has been a reliable framework for a number of clients and now the book is an extension of that system so that others further away can enjoy the same benefits. The book acts as a guide, a coach and checklist where one can step through a process in their own timeframe and budget. A great resource.

Highly motivated, passionate and skilled
I have co-presented with Belinda on a number of downsizing seminars now and have clients who have also utilised Belinda’s services and spoken highly of the experience and success they have achieved as a result of her skills and services. Belinda is a highly motivated, passionate and skilled professional who I would have no hesitation in recommending.

Home sold for more than the estimated sale price!
My client's mum's home sold for more than the estimated sale price provided by the agents. Thanks again for helping out my client and for the good outcome.

A low-key approach is the best way with seniors like me
I admit I was a little concerned the talk might mean I'd be pressured into making decisions I'm not ready for as yet. However, I found it very interesting and learnt quite a few things about decluttering, colour schemes etc. I'd recommend your business to others as a low-key approach is the best way with seniors like me who have family members telling us what to do a lot of the time. So, thank you Belinda!

Very relevant at my stage of life
I did not at all have any concerns about attending, I had everything to gain, nothing to lose. So, I decided to attend as this subject is very relevant at my stage of life. I have received the benefit of information for what services are available in downsizing, how I can get prepared and plan my future within 10 years in real estate. I would recommend your expertise (and that it exists) to anyone who asked me. I think your seminar was very well presented and I appreciated seeing the before & after photos as part of selling property.
