Bergfeld's Estate Clearance assisted me with a client facing eviction who suffered from Collyer's Syndrome. Kristin gained my client's trust and completely restored the apartment, preserving a 40 year tenancy. Discreet, reassuring and very caring; I hope to work with her again soon.
I have worked with Kristin Bergfeld and her team multiple times. It is a pleasure to have someone as professional as she guide clients through a “clean-out process” – often the most daunting part of getting a property on the market. Most recently she assisted with the clearing out of a large, over-crowded townhouse. She handled all of the moving parts with ease, playing an important role in a highly successful sale.
