My name is Susan Camus, Broker owner of Imagine Properties NY & NJ, and I have been in your shoes. I lost my mother unexpectedly a few years back. I still had my father, but he worked, and she did everything else. He did not know anything about the house, banks, investments etc. I was lost; did not know where to start and had no one to guide me. People recommended a probate attorney and that was needed, but there was so much more to do. I had to go through the house, and God bless my mother she never threw anything out. She had several boxes and bags of IMPORTANT STUFF in EVERY room. I am usually quite capable, but I was in shock, grieving, trying to take care of my father, work, and comfort my 3 kids. And while I do love the rest of my family, I will admit we do not always see eye to eye and there were quite a few disagreements.
In my day to day business, I have no problem making decisions, but in this situation, I was questioning every little move I was about to make. I would have given anything for guidance and help.
Flash forward a few years and I try to help my friends who find themselves in similar situations. Now I am certified and can help people on a larger scale. I have put a referral team together and am constantly adding to it. So whether you need a referral to one or two services or all the services, or if it is right after your loss or 6-12 months after your loss, I am here to help, because I know what it was like. And if you need something that is not on my list, ask anyway, I have become extremely resourceful. That is one of the many wonderful traits I got from my mother!
