Living Life Feature: Estate of Grace


Estate of Grace is a local family owned business that prides itself on providing a caring and holistic approach to estate services.  They are focused on doing the best for the client, family and their estate by maximising value and making a difference to the community with options to support local charities and non-profit organisations whenever possible.

Andrew Whiley, and his wife Jackie, established the business three years ago after seeing the many issues facing the elderly down-sizing and families dealing with estates.  Today, families often don’t live locally; distance can make it difficult to balance the physical tasks along with the emotions required when dealing with an estate.  This can also include the challenge of transitioning elderly parents to a retirement facility.  Estate of Grace simplifies the process! 

A recent client engaged the company to look after the estate of his late mother.  Household goods were assessed, with valuable items sold and the balance of goods shared across eight local charitable organisations.  The house was then fully cleaned and staged, including the garden, to ensure that the client was able to maximise the selling price.  His quote says it all. “In view of what the place looked like before they went in, I think they’ve worked a miracle.  The place inside and out looks fantastic”.

Estate of Grace has a team of skilled staff and contractors that manage everything to fulfil the needs of the client or estate within the timeframes requested by the client.  They have carried out jobs for families throughout Otago and Southland.  With care and respect, the team at Estate of Grace ensure that treasured family items are safely managed. 

Andrew and Jackie are happy to assist those that wish to pre-plan how their estate is handled.  It is just part of the personal, caring and professional service that has appealed to their clients.  So, feel free to contact Andrew to discuss how Estate of Grace can assist you!
