An Executor... Gerine de Jong worked on two major projects for me in the summer and fall of 2011. She did a superb job, and I am happy to recommend her service to you. As the executor for the estate of two artists, I was responsible for clearing out the basement of their home of 40 years. It was not only packed with the usual accumulation of things, it also held a lifetimes worth of textile and ceramic pieces made by the artists as well as a full-sized kiln for firing clay pots. I contacted Downsizing Diva, and they sent me Gerine. She assessed the situation, set to work, and completed the task in the time allotted. Aside from her practical, orderly, and conscientious work ethic, she was very sensitive to which items might be of value to family members. Also, her background in art and design was added value on this project. She was enthusiastic about finding a good home for the art works, and took on the task of photographing each piece and storing it digitally on my computer so I could offer the pieces to museums easily. The second project was to help me organize my own papers. I never throw out paper. Gerine, who normally likes to be active physically, graciously agreed to sit next to me and sift through about ten years worth of financial records, recipes cut out of the newspaper, birthday cards, ticket stubs, etc. etc. She had me organized in no time. Gerine de Jong is an excellent person for the job she has chosen to do. She relates well to people, and she approaches every task with fresh ideas and an admirable 'can-do' attitude.
A Retired Speech Therapist... Gerine de Jong carried out my move on January 31, 2011. She has a very special quality that brought comfort to me during the stress of an emotional change. She is a gentle spirit sent to bolster my way ahead.
A Retired Schoolteacher... Gerine de Jong helped me get ready for my move and decide what items I should take. Some items not being taken had to be sent to my daughter, some needed to be disposed of and some moved to my cottage. She helped me get set up in my new apartment: organizing what items went where, hung my artwork, and bought my toaster oven. She did a very good job in organizing all the various details of the move. The move went very well. I was very glad of Gerine's assistance during my move. I found her very helpful and professional in all my dealings with her.
A Retired Accountant and CEO... Gerine de Jong did a very good job in organizing all the various details of the move. The move went very well due to her work.
Former Education Specialist... Dear Gerine, Belatedly, I want to thank you so much for all you did to make my move as smooth as possible. I fully realize that we couldn't have managed without you - you thought of everything, bless you - and I am very grateful. My very best wishes to you.
Former Professor and Author... Simply - thank you for the fine job you carried out in moving my brother's things to the nursing wing at Christie Gardens. The room looks very nice. This was done professionally and with a noticeable thoughtful touch that I appreciated. You had quite a job but handled it very well and with great presence.
