Your Real Estate and Probate Advocate

I live in Cherokee County, Georgia with my amazing husband and two wonderful teenagers. I have 15 years of financial planning operations experience and have 3 CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professionals in my family – my husband, father, and father-in-law.  As a REALTOR®, a landlord, a scout mom/leader, and a band mom, I am always on the go working and providing value wherever I can. 

Because of my love for financial planning and all things real-estate-related, I built my business, Holcombe Estate Solutions, around being an advocate for my clients, whether they are traditional real estate clients or families going through probate with an inherited home to sell.   

If you are thinking about moving, whether buying or selling, I can help take the guesswork out of it. This is usually the largest transaction a person will ever make, and I walk my clients through making smart choices for their future (not just facilitating a purchase or sale). I can show you what your options are and help you make informed decisions to make that move a reality.

If you or a family member are in the midst of probating an estate, you are not alone. I have resources and a network of trusted, local professionals that I can plug into whatever challenge you may be facing. I aim to bring confidence and efficiency to the estate settlement process for local families.

I have the background, the drive, and network to be the go-to problem solver for all your real estate and probate related needs. 

Let’s talk! I want to earn the privilege of helping you or someone you know.

Administrative Guidance

My probate services translate well to other major life transitions. Situations such as separating assets due to a divorce or preparing to sell a home to pay for long-term care. These areas usually have assets in motion and need to be handled with care, and I work in tandem with your attorney to cover all the bases of estate transition, whichever your situation.

As an executor, you will find that the mountain of paperwork can sometimes feel overwhelming. There are creditors to notify, services and subscriptions to update, ownership changes to make on assets like cars, houses, financial accounts… not to mention the beneficiary claim forms for life insurance or annuity contracts.  It can be a little daunting to tackle these items yourself.

One of my services is centered around streamlining the administrative duties by putting a user-friendly system into place. This system helps you put these tasks in a manageable workflow and keeps you on track and compliant with your fiduciary duty as executor. The administrative service offered is based on a flat rate or by the hour based on the complexity of the estate.

I help you manage your duties with confidence and reduce the chances for disgruntled heirs and costly delays. 

My Team of Trusted Service Providers

Aside from the administrative duties, there are decisions to be made about personal belongings: how to take inventory, what gets appraised, who will host the estate sale, how to donate what’s left, when to distribute items to heirs, and so on.

If there is a newly vacant property, you will also be responsible for taking care the home while you sort out probate.  This could mean handling the landscaping, making any urgent repairs, securing the property against squatters, and other miscellaneous tasks.

For the tasks that I don’t personally assist with, I partner with local professionals that I trust to tackle whatever probate/real estate related challenges you may have.

Financial Advisors – Estate Sale Professionals – Landscaping Crew – Light Home Repairs to Full Remodel – Probate Attorneys – Cash Buyers or Full Market Listing Service – Moving Companies – Long-Term Care Facilities – Insurance Agents – Social Services Referrals – Accountants

Sell Your Probate Real Estate

You may need to sell the home to divide the equity among heirs or so you can pay expenses and debts of the estate. When selling a property in probate, you should always work with someone who is intimately familiar with the unique challenges associated with probate properties.

I’m happy to sit down and talk with you about your situation and see where I can provide value to you.
