As a full service estate sales company, we offer turnkey services to our clients. We strive to make your life easier, and give you the option to make just one call to solve your needs. Most companies are done at the end of the sale, leaving you to clean up the aftermath. We aren’t that company. We have the resources and the teams to make your life easier. Here’s what we can do for you:

What happens to the items left?
With our sales, we are aggressive in pricing, and create an atmosphere where people want to buy. We typically sell well over 90% of all contents. In some cases we have sold everything, however when there are more non-saleable items, we have formed great relationships with dealers and customers that want to buy in bulk at the end at reduced prices. Our motto is “We Want to Sell it All”
We offer full clean-out services, including donation of items that may be left after the sale.
How do we (the clients) prepare for our estate sale?
Remove all items not for sale prior to pictures, marketing, and staging of the sale.
Remove all personal items, papers with personal information, and personal photos.
If items not for sale can’t be removed from the home, please identify a private room for “not for sale items”.
If items of furniture can’t be removed, or placed in a private room, those items need to be identified and labeled as “Not for Sale”.
Please “Don’t Throw Anything Away”. Leave it to the professionals. Your trash is someone else’s treasure.
How Long Does It Take?
Depending on the size, and contents, we can prepare your home for sale in 2-5 days. Research and preparation is a key element to a successful sale. We spend a great deal of time researching and understanding the value of your sale.
Most estate sales range from 1-3 days, with the occasional large sale that can last up to 5 days.
If you request clean-out and donation services after a sale, the clean-out process may take up to an additional 3 days. We will advise of those timelines based on the scope of services requested, and if the need arises.
