Yes we have on some occasions as we do work with a lot of friends! And we love to help them, when needed and when we have the time.
Last one, a single lady I helped her to pack and offered more. I even cleaned out the garage, yard myself....
Yes, usually they were elderly and sometimes one of the spouses had died or had to go into assisted living.
No Debbie, I have offered to find them someone they could hire though.
hell, no.... it's their responsibility, not mine....or any of my team members....
No, I haven't. I love my clients, but I don't offer to do any physical labor for them.
whatever it takes to make client happy and close on time
I just did this about two months ago. The sellers have moved out of the area and one of them had MS. He is in a wheel chair. The neighbor was doing most of the work, but I got organizations in the house to take away stuff.
The category on Craigslist called Free Stuff is useful. I've posted items for sellers, handled inquiries and arranged for pickup.
No, but if asked, I would be happy to refer them to someone.
Yes, sometimes you do whatever you have to for your clients.
I have helped clients move in, and out. I do so only if they seem to be having problems. In that case I am happy to help. Mark
There's an app for that! It's called Donation Nation. They have helped several clients clear out what they are not moving. I think they are becoming pretty much national, and they work with national and local charities to recycle what the client wants to give away or throw away.

Yes Debbie, I have done many things to keep a deal together.
I have offered to pay for services to help them, rarely offer my own time, but absolutely do what it takes to make things happen
Debbie, we do what it takes when people need extra help to help move things along and close the sale. Old Red comes in handy as we have used it serveral times to help move debris left behind or help a client move when in desperate need.
In this case seller's idea of broom clean meant two full pick up loads for OLD RED to the dump and a pick up load of cardboard and plastic to the recycle center.
Git 'er done!
of course - that falls into my favorite category - and other duties as assigned. I have even sent my daughter's nanny to help out when the clients were particularly elderly and needy.

No, but I know people they can hire.
Absolutely, I have crews available when needed.
Yes, and I have actually driven the moving truck.
No, but I have had a couple of buyers seriously ask me to help them unpack. I politely declined.
Debbie Reynolds No, my expertise is in marketing. I can put them on to a moving company though.
One of the things I tell my clients up front is that I don’t help move. If it were a client who couldn’t do it and had no family, I would organize a group to help.
Debbie Reynolds I've helped a few friends, and with a few items for others as needed. I would certainly help if needed, but I do not look to become a mover or cleaner unless their other options have fallen through. Need to be more careful at age 60...
Yes, on more than one occasion. Some people just can't seem to get organized enough to get it done.
I will offer suggestions but will not be part of the crew.
Debbie Reynolds never done so far - but if it comes to that, I would not mind.
