You can find ANYTHING on the web. How to make your own cereal; how to change your oil; how to complete a will or trust; a rat can last longer without water than a camel (no kidding?) and millions of other things. BUT, if you want something important done right, you hire an experienced professional.

Firsthand experience is always the best teacher. There is nothing like having to learn something by doing it wrong, doing it wrong then eventually getting it right.

Final Affairs of closing an estate is no exception. Many families think that because the estate is small or the family didn’t own much that it will be a simple process. That really doesn’t happen. It’s just the families way of saying they are capable of handling this elephant in the room.

When it comes to something really important and really emotionally stressful, why would you even want to do it? Why take on the entire experience especially when you probably won’t have to ever do it again? We all know that it’s more expensive to fix something than it is to do it right the first time.

Here’s how we can help get it done right.

1. We ask the right questions. We know what you don’t know so we know what to ask to get what you need.

2. We save you money, and time. This is because we ask the right questions of the right people at the right time.

3. We aren’t emotionally involved with the deceased. When the company or person wants to argue, we don’t get upset, we don’t feel the urge to slam down the phone nor do we engage in the argument. We simply state what we need.

4. We take care of items upfront so they don’t surprise you later. There is almost no worse experience than having a lull in the estate closing process and then getting hit with something out of the blue. This is not only emotionally draining, it will take hours to research and complete. (I know this from firsthand experience and it’s no fun).

If you are facing the dreaded, unpaid, overwhelming job of closing an estate, let us help you. We can make the entire experience much less stressful and much more complete so you can focus on what’s really important.

I also want to throw a big shout out to Cameron at Hospice of Arizona. Thanks for the referrals!


I was very excited to receive the check that I have been working on for the last few months!  And BONUS… it was for $6.25.  Let’s see, that reimburses exactly 5 minutes of my time professionally and only leaves 11 hours and 55 minutes that isn’t covered.

The primary reason I do what I do is because families don’t need to spend 12 hours of their time trying to get a $1.25… I mean $6.25….. check completed.  They should be spending time with family, grieving the loss of a loved one and just finding out that things are getting done.

Yesterday, I heard a man say this.  “Your company is great because you can help the family in the first 2 months by taking care of all those time consuming, overwhelming items so they can focus on grieving.  What a great service!”

I love what we do, how we help, how we benefit families.  I love making people cry because we found pictures they thought were lost or getting a hug because we got a refund of $17.89 cents from a newspaper, but above all else, I love that they can focus on what is really important, and it’s NOT the $6.25 check.

What is your time worth?

By the way, I used the $6.25 to have my son’s car washed and then I spent 2 hours detailing it for him.  Hope he notices and rewards me with a hug!
