Dear Karen;

When my sister-in-law became ill, we thought that we were prepared for what lay ahead. We soon found out how overwhelming it is when a loved one becomes ill and has to move into a care facility. Not only are there many details to be organized for her daily living, there were also the details of dissolving her estate. We can’t thank you enough for helping us with this task. Your assistance let us focus on what was most important at the time – our sister and her needs. You kept us informed every step of the way and used many different methods for the sale of her household belongings. As I have Power of Attorney over my sister-in-laws estate, it was very important to me to obtain the best possible price for the belongings and be transparent in all that I did. I am sure that we could not have received more money than what was obtained through your services. Thank you for taking on this task, and assisting me to do my job in an ethical and transparent manner.

Hi Karen;

I just haven’t had time to email you, to thank you for all your help in our move from Parksville. I don’t think we could have managed without your help. Every problem I threw at you, you managed to solve. You seem to know someone for every job that we needed done and even gave me a shoulder to cry on when it was needed and kept my spirits up when I thought we would never be ready to make the move.
I wish you were here in Ontario to help us find a place —
Again, thanks a million.

Delores and Bill M.


I had to move my mom to a seniors facility and really was overwhelmed.  My real estate agent suggested I try “Karen’s Transitions” . This was the best move I ever made. Karen was very professional and had the “patience of you know who”. She had my mom packed up in a matter of a couple of days, arranged for the movers, and was at her new home to set everything up so that my mom arrived at her new place and it looked just like home. I would recommend “Karen’s Transitions” to anyone.Her expertise is a godsend in a world of chaos.

Re: Karen’s Transitions Made Simple

I had hoped when my mother in law finally decided she was willing to move that we would be able to engage the services of a person that could just ‘make it happen’!  We were given a name and were very fortunate to have found Karen Flannery who really did think of all the problems ahead of time. This was including different scenarios for the furniture, which pieces would be best and why, hiring and dealing with the movers, doing the last minute packing (especially as I couldn’t be there!)

Karen worked to create a comfortable, appealing suite to move into without having to deal with all the mess and boxes. I especially enjoyed not having to struggle with putting together the combination fireplace and TV platform that we purchased.

Karen was invaluable in saving our sanity as we were still involved in helping my mother in law adjust emotionally. To us, her services were well worth the cost and more! Thank-you  Karen!
