About the Company: Founded in 2020, ClearEstate provides help and guidance to executors by acting as a one-stop-shop for all estate-related services. ClearEstate is a family finance hub that can save executors approximately 120 hours of their time and $8,500 in fees. An average North American estate settlement will cost families about $10,000. Adding to the burden is the probate process upon the death of a family member, which is most complex for the executor. They are responsible for completing a series of mandatory administrative tasks that Gauthier has described as “being audited by the IRS every month for 18 months,” the typical length of the process. ClearEstate’s mission is to demystify the responsibilities of an estate executor and help you get through this process as painlessly and efficiently as possible.
