As a family business, our motto is to provide complete estate sales and liquidation services including, but not limited to:
- Estate Sales
- Residential Clean-Out
- Shipping to Heirs
- Preparing the residence for an estate sale. First, we remove refuse. Then we separate valuables from junk and organize the residence by categorizing properties (i.e., locating family pictures, family memorabilia, business papers) and placing in labeled boxes. We’ll use separate rooms to display various categories (linens, costume jewelry, porcelains) and items of value.
- Estate sales. We can hold estate sales for the public in the residence. Or we can: 1) hold a private estate sale or private showing, 2) take selective consignment and donate the balance, or 3) purchase the complete estate.
- Consign to auction. With our expertise and having successfully consigned over $12 million to auction, we can negotiate auction fees and costs with major auction houses. We are fully-versed in the important aspects of consigning to auction: placing photographs, proper placement in the catalog, best time of the year to sell, the best auction house for consigning (one which specializes in your particular property).
A staff of trained professionals with over 20 years experience in selling complete estates will handle all the details. Estate inventory is reviewed by our appraisal staff who have expert knowledge of market levels and collector sources.
