TLS’s owner, Marie LeBlanc earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the General Motors Institute in Flint, MI; an MBA from Nichols College in Dudley, MA; and worked in various management positions for many high-tech manufacturers. But when she experienced the stress of spending nights and weekends sorting, packing, selling, and disposing of personal property following the death of a loved one, Marie knew her mission was to lift the same burden from others facing this difficult task. In fact, that’s the reason she started Transitions Liquidation in 2002.
Marie’s expertise in project and program management coupled with her extensive experience helping those going through a transition is the perfect combination of skills to efficiently plan and coordinate a transition of any size and scope with care and support. Her unique approach begins with getting to know her clients and the challenges they face. Sometimes family members live in distant cities and cannot be there to assist in the transition. Marie becomes like “one of the family” and identifies the significant ways in which she and her trusted partners can help.
Marie LeBlanc lives in Hyannis, MA, serves on the Board of the Women’s Council of Realtors and the New England chapter of the National Association of Geriatric Care Managers. She is currently serving as President of the Board of Directors of Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA.
In my position as a geriatric care manager, I am called upon to help elders who are in a period of transition. I make assessments and recommendations for resources to assist them. If they can no longer stay in their own homes, I call upon Marie LeBlanc and Transitions Liquidation Services to assist. Marie is very detail oriented; she makes transitioning a client to an assisted living community very, very easy and she takes care of everything! Clients tell me that the way she has organized the process and set up their new home is exactly as they would have done it. She is sensitive to their needs, so they feel very much at home when they first walk in the door. Marie gets to know her clients on a very personal level. She respects their belongings and makes an emotionally-charged situation much less stressful. She certainly makes my job easier because I know it will be done right. I wholeheartedly recommend Marie LeBlanc and Transitions Liquidation Services, Inc.
