A pleasant experience....

Dear Stefani,


When Hanna and I first contemplated selling our house we were overcome with dread at the thought of the size and complexity of the task. Downsizing, estate sale, repairs, house sale and attendant paperwork were daunting.

Good fortune led us to Loving Transitions and to you. What a change in our circumstances. You took over the responsibilities and together with your professional contacts the entire operation became a pleasant experience. Everything, and I mean “everything” was excellently taken care of. The whole sale and move was actually a calm and pleasant experience. We cannot thank you enough for your expert help and careful considerate treatment of us.


Stefani you were a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend you to anyone selling their home enthusiastically. Thank you warmly again.

Cordially,

Lawrence Lattman

Feeling the love...


I highly recommend Stefani and Randy and Loving Transitions for your transition needs and sale of your home!  My brother and I both live in Texas and after our fathers passing, we were faced with the daunting task of fixing his home which needed some major repairs.  We were concerned about managing this process remotely.  They were an absolute Godsend!  They managed everything from assessing the repairs, hiring the people for the job and ensuring it was done properly, within budget and on time.  


They communicated throughout the entire process and once the home was in great shape, they sold it in 24 HOURS!  Stefani and Randy are very honest in their advice and direction, both with the improvements necessary with today's housing market as well as the sale of the house.  The service they provided us allowed us to be able to focus on Dad's final needs without worrying about the estate sale, renovations or selling his house.   


If you are looking for someone who is honest, knowledgeable and will take care of everything – Stefani and Randy are the ONLY option for you!  I can't recommend them enough!

My dad and I found all the answers in Loving Transitions...

"When your parents who had always been capable, knowledgeable, and able to handle anything, start to become people whose mental and physical needs now need that extra help, and it now becomes your responsibility to change places with them; where do you start? Where is the best place they can get help in this transition? How do you handle everything?  


My dad and I found all the answers in Loving Transitions.  They knew exactly where to start.  They knew the places where the best care was given and experts who were able to professionally access and give the kind of care that was needed.  


Loving Transitions gave me the support and help I needed to go through this as well as being there to help my dad ease into the dramatic changes in his life.  


They even knew movers who would help pack, label, move, unpack and arrange the new place if needed. 


They have gone to his new place for meals and introduced him to people who also live there.  They did not just forget us when then job was done. 


Loving Transitions really live up to their name."

We work closely with senior living communities...

 “I work at a senior living community, and I have referred several residents to Stefani and her team.  Quite commonly, we have folks that are concerned about selling their home.  Stefani is who I refer people to right away!  Every time I’ve had an interaction with Stefani, it’s a positive experience.  She is so prompt, so professional, and communicative.  I love hearing from our residents how helpful Stefani has been and how happy they are that she helped them.  She takes care of every step – beginning to end! I only have positive feedback on working with Loving Transitions.  They truly live up to their name.  I have enjoyed working with Stefani, and I will continue to happily refer people to her.”

Help, just when I needed it.

I never thought that I would be in a position to need the experience of someone with Sefani’s capabilities and knowledge. She came with excellent recommendations and a willingness to help me make difficult decisions. Living across the country and having a full time job, I realized it was going to be difficult, but Stefani did all the foot work, got the needed paperwork, and kept in communication with me. The timing of selling a home, the contents, and coordinating the needed repairs is very time consuming but Stefani and her team made it happen. Truly, I will never be able to put into words how she helped me and my family through this difficult time. Stefani and her team went Above and Beyond. Thank You!

Stefani brought in the cavalry...

Hi my name is Cathy and I am an out-of-state caregiver for my mom who is diabetic and has dementia. My mom is a highly intelligent woman, who raised three daughters with minimal support from my father who left us when we were young. My mom was successful on so many levels and was able to retire with a pension at the age of 60. Within the last year and a half, I found that my mom’s diabetes and memory was declining which her CNP, Clinical Pharmacist, and Neuropsychologists/Clinical Psychologists’ validated. I developed a Case Management Care Plan with the help of highly trained professionals to assist her and initially provided her with in-home care several times a week. Her latest surgery exasperated her dementia, which made it imperative that we find a new home, an Assisted Living Memory Care Facility.

I was referred to Corey Nelson, STELLAR Senior Housing Experts, who has been such an angel to me finding the perfect fit for my mom. This was the hardest decision I have ever had to make but I knew that someday my mom would thank me for taking care of her the way she took care of me. Once we had mom safely moved to her new home, I needed an attorney and a realtor to help with the sale of her home. People advised me that I could sell her house on my own, received bad appraisals, and less than adequate referrals for real estate agents. Corey provided me with a referral. I try very hard to trust and then verify and quickly found that Corey knows her stuff!!!!

I was referred to Stefani Quintana with Coldwell Banker Legacy and owner of Loving Transitions. In review of her website, I knew that she was exactly what I needed and I made a quick call. She visited me at my mom’s house within a few days of my phone call. This visit was not about selling my mom’s house, Stefani made sure that my needs were met during a very stressful, heart wrenching time where I needed to find a way to pay for my mom’s new home which is costly. I remember vividly she told me “I’ve got this, I’m bringing in the Cavalry”. She wasn’t kidding. I was able to meet her husband Randy Arnn who is not only a phenomenal husband but also a great business partner. Both Stefani and Randy are true professionals who believe in transparency. Through their network base we were able to host an estate sale, sell her home in a reliable, safe, and timely manner. All of this was conducted within a three-month period just in time so that I would not have to pay her next month’s rent out of my personal savings. The estate sale hosted by Treadstone/Sunrise Estate sales, was a life saver. What you see is, is what you get. The home repairs and inspections were performed within a timely, professional manner without breaking the bank. All real estate and title company transactions were performed through timely, secure means. I never had to fly to Albuquerque to sign a document or to close on the house. All of this was performed remotely and funds transferred directly into my mom’s account. I never had to worry about a thing. Stefani and Randy had my back the entire way.

Visiting my mom over Mother’s Day weekend, my husband and I have found that mom is safe, happy and calls her new home her “home”. The last time I visited my mom while physicians were working with her meds and stabilizing her outbursts, cycling, and sun downing in February, I was disowned and accused of many things. This is part of the day in the life of a caregiver of a parent who has dementia. My mom now tells me once again that she loves me and tells me thank you for taking care of her. I’m not sure I would have ever heard those words again without my two angels Stefani and Randy. What you see and what you read on this website is true, it’s up to you to make the connection that is right for you. My experience has led me to new friends who are Christians, loving parents, phenomenal team who respects each other as a couple. That speaks volumes in my book.
