Estate Management



Waddington's has the experience and knowledge to provide helpful advice and market guidance to clients managing an estate or downsizing.

We know it can be hard to even know where to start, which is why we recommend our “walkabout” service, an informal verbal appraisal. If you require a formal document and inventory listing, we can help with that too.

We also have a trusted network of professional packers, movers and organizers who will ensure the project goes as smoothly as possible. If there are sellable goods that may not be suitable for Waddington’s international market of buyers, we can recommend alternative options for bringing your goods to market.

Contact us today to get started on the plan. We’re here to help.

Please contact our Appraisals Manager Ellie Muir, member of ISA and USPAP certified, to discuss your estate management needs. Appraisals@waddingtons.ca
