"My sister and I lost both of our parents and our sister within 15 months. They had a beautiful home full of treasures and sentimental items to sort through. Neither of us lived within a 10-hour drive, and we both had jobs. Then COVID hit, which made it even harder to go back and forth. We managed to organize some things we wanted to keep, but there was still so much left! We had a family friend recommend Kendra and Stuff Happens to us. Immediately, a huge weight was lifted off our shoulders. Kendra stepped in, executed an estate sale, and started sending things to appropriate places for rehoming or disposal. Within a short time everything that remained found new homes and the house was empty. My sister and I could never have done everything on our own from so far away. Kendra is so phenomenal at what she does!!
In addition to being very organized, methodical, knowledgeable, and conscientious in her job she is the kindest and most compassionate person. At such a highly emotional and stressful time she was a calm and reassuring presence, working with us at our speed and always checking and double-checking her next moves and ideas with us. She had respect for us and for the contents of our parent’s home, always working to find the best option for moving things on. I was so overwhelmed had many breakdowns during the sorting stage and she was a counselor and a friend. She made me feel so much better about what was happening and how I was reacting to it. My favorite thing she did was telling us little stories about who was buying or taking the furniture and how much the people liked what they took. It was really comforting and very special to know the things we cherished were going to be appreciated by someone new.
My sister and I highly recommend Kendra if “Stuff Happens” in your life and you need someone to help and guide you through. Absolutely no reservations! Thank you Kendra, you did an exemplary job and I feel like I made a very special friend in the process.

"My husband and I decided to move from our 2900 square foot home of over 40 years in New Mexico, to a 1600 square foot apartment in a continuing care retirement community in San Diego. Kendra Henning helped us with all the steps of our move. We would never have managed without her calm help.
Calmly and persistently Kendra helped us decide what to keep. She gathered and prepared items to be donated or disposed. She had contacts who could pick up at our house the tools, furniture, dishes, clothes, and books we wished to donate. She advertised the items we wished to sell. All the while she worked around our work schedules and house showings and sale.
She coordinated with the moving company representative to schedule our household move and that of our car. On moving-out day, Kendra supervised the packers, labeled boxes with contents and room destination, and made sure nothing was left behind. After we left New Mexico, Kendra disposed of unwanted items and had the house cleaned and prepared for the new owners. All the while she had interacted positively with our real estate agent and the buyers of our house.
She spoke several times giving and getting information with the move-in manager to make sure our move-in in San Diego went smoothly. When we arrived at our apartment on move-in day, they had pictures and furniture layout plans to work from.
I recommend Kendra Henning so that seniors in Los Alamos and Santa Fe, NM, can find someone to help them with down-sizing and moving."

"I hired Kendra to clean up my mother's house after she passed away. It was a monumental task coming at an already overwhelming time for our family. Kendra handled everything efficiently and professionally. We found her to be knowledgeable, organized and understanding of our needs. We would absolutely recommend her, particularly to those dealing with the death of a loved one."

"It’s hardly ever given me such pleasure in paying an invoice. I have acquired not only a moveout miracle maker, but a friend."

"Kendra, you’ve done a fabulous job helping me get moved out of my old house - your vision, organizational skills and good humor have helped me tremendously! I can highly recommend you to anyone who needs your services!"

"Kendra Henning's supportive, calming, encouraging presence and expert skills helped me to make a definitive and therapeutic shift in the creative chaos I call home. We contracted for 9 hours divided into 3 consecutive days. I highly recommend Kendra. She is professional, clear, positive, fun, totally trustworthy and compassionately understanding in a down to earth and practical way to guide and assist in personal organization. I say, don't wait too long to schedule a session!"
