About the Owner

John Kleist III 


I’m John Kleist III, local owner and operator of Caring Transitions Three Rivers. I understand what it’s like to face a monumental life transition. When my wife, Beth, and I lost three parents in less than 2 years, we quickly became the executors of three estates. The lengthy and complicated process has led me to become the owner of Caring Transitions Three Rivers to help you navigate the right sizing process with our customized move management services.

Caring Transitions’ specially trained professionals handle decluttering, organizing, packing, moving, resettling, in-home estate sales and online auctions, estate clearing and preparing homes for the real estate market. We serve Pittsburgh (including downtown, the South Side, the cultural district and the strip district), East Hills, Squirrel Hill, Shadyside, Monroeville, McKeesport, North Versailles, Edgewood, Swissvale, Homestead, Plum, Regent Square, Oakland, Bloomfield, Lawrenceville, Friendship, Polish Hill, Point Breeze, East Liberty, Greenfield, Garfield, Homewood, Morningside and Stanton Heights.

Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for managing the many aspects of a senior move or assisting with the process of right sizing a home to provide a safer living enviroment. Busy families and people clearing out the home of a loved one who have moved into assisted care or passed away can leverage the manpower and skills of Caring Transitions to complete the liquidation process in as little as a few days or weeks. 

Prior to being the owner of Caring Transitions, I was Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Excalibur Data Systems in Pittsburgh and I’m a leader in the business sector as a Sr. Account Executive for the last 20 years.

If I had known about Caring Transitions while liquidating our parents’ estates, there is no doubt in my mind that I would have hired Caring Transitions to assist us to manage all that needed done. That’s what inspired me to be the owner and operator of this business. 

I have a calling to help people and I’m here to help you solve all of the challenges that come with relocating, downsizing and estate sales for your home and belongings. Caring Transitions stands out because we’re a full-service move management solution. We will treat you with empathy, care and compassion. Ultimately, we reduce the stress and anxiety of relocation and liquidation, so you can focus on the next chapter of life. 

I’m looking forward to creating a customized solution to meet your needs, no matter where you are in the process.
