ALISON'S MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION ESTATE AND MOVING SALES SINCE 1970
Hi~I am Alison Robb, and dealing with antiques and estates sales is ALL I have ever done in my life-- I have never ever worked for anyone, or any business other than myself, so when I say that I am A COMPLETE PROFESSIONAL REGARDING THE ESTATE AND ANTIQUES BUSINESS, YOU CAN BELIEVE IT, AND I CAN PROVE IT!
But first, a word of advice:
PLEASE READ ALL CONTRACTS TOTALLY BEFORE YOU SIGN THEM!!!
THERE ARE OTHER ESTATE SALE BUSINESSES WHICH HAVE MANY CLAUSES WHICH DO NOT BENEFIT THE CLIENT, INCLUDING LOSS OF OWNERSHIP OF YOUR OWN GOODS ONCE YOU SIGN THE CONTRACT!
It has recently come to my attention that ANYONE CAN LIST THEMSELVES AS AN ESTATE SALE PROFESSIONAL.
I RECENTLY ENCOUNTERED AN 18 YEAR OLD WHO TOLD ME HE WAS A REAL PROFESSIONAL THAT HE HAD BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR YEARS!!!!! WHEN I POINTED OUT SOMETHING THAT HE WAS DOING WHICH WAS LEGALLY INCORRECT, HE WAS HOSTILE AND TOLD ME HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING!!!! WOW!!!! ALL OF THAT KNOWLEDGE AT 18 YEARS OF AGE!
BUT HE IS NOT ALONE-- OTHERS WHO HAVE WORKED WITH ANOTHER ESTATE PROFESSIONAL ARE NOW SETTING UP THEIR OWN BUSINESS'-- FEELING THAT A FEW MONTHS, OR YEARS OBSERVING ANOTHER CAN MAKE THEM THE EQUAL OF A LIFETIME PROFESSIONAL.
I ASK YOU: WOULD YOU TRUST THE DENTAL HYGENIST TO EXTRACT YOUR TEETH BECAUSE SHE HAS ASSITED AT A HUNDRED EXTRACTIONS?
WOULD YOU TRUST THE NURSE TO REMOVE YOUR SPLEEN BECAUSE SHE HAS ASSITED AT THIS PROCEDURE??
THERE IS A LOT MORE TO BEING AN ESTATE PROFESSIONAL THAN "WORKING" WITH ANOTHER ESTATE PROFESSIONAL.
I have been doing business buying and selling antiques for over 42 years as MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION ANTIQUES, and have used my experience to conduct many great estate and moving sales.
My experienced staff includes antique professionals who bring over 80 years combined experience.
I accept credit and debit cards from all major credit card companies to guarantee the best possible sales.
If your sale warrants, I will provide national exposure to guarantee the best possible attendance, and prices.
I have been a featured guest on THE HOME AND GARDEN NETWORK (episode 107 of Collectible Treasures) as an expert, have lectured at Oakland University, and have been interviewed on several local cable shows regarding my expertise in dealing with antiques and collectibles.
I have participated in all the major antiques shows from Massachusetts to South Florida and my 42 years in the business, and my wide range of knowledge have served me well in the house sales enterprise.
I am reputable, honest, and hardworking, and will do all that I can to ensure a painless and rewarding experience for all my clients.
I adhere to a strict code of ethic's which means ALL who attend my sales have an equal opportunity at the merchandise: I DO NOT PRE SELL TO ANY OTHER THAN THE FAMILY BEFORE A SALE!!!
I DO NOT OWN A STORE, OR AUCTION HOUSE, AND YOU WILL NOT FIND ARTICLES FEATURED AT MY SALES ON ANY EBAY STORE SUPPLIED BY ME: TO DO SO WOULD BE A DIRECT CONFLICT OF INTEREST BETWEEN THE SELLER, THE CLIENT, AND FUTURE CUSTOMERS.
I provide an experienced sales staff, tables, professional table covers, shelving, pricing, photographing for web site, everything to professionally set up your goods in the best possible display!
We do cleaning, sorting arranging, silver polishing, furniture touch-ups and all research necessary to guarantee you as the client the very best results.
When it comes to jewelry, I have a certified GIA (Gemological Institute of America) expert Gemologist on staff who brings years of experience in selling, and identifying fine jewelry of merit.
I recommend that you do NOT throw anything out before calling me, other than old bills, etc, as you do not have the expertise to determine what is desirable or otherwise.
IF, AT THE END OF THE SALE YOU DO NOT CARE TO DEAL WITH THE UNSOLD ARTICLES, ARRANGEMENTS CAN BE MADE TO HAVE THEM PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED OUT--EVEN IF YOU LIVE OUT OF STATE!
DEALING WITH ANY ESTATE, OR MOVING SALE IS STRESSFUL UNDER THE BEST OF CIRCUMSTANCES, LET ME TAKE THE CARE AND WORRY OFF YOUR SHOULDERS DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME!
If we discover anything of a personal nature we will, of course immediately bring this to your attention: old letters, photo's albums, etc, so you need not worry that treasured family memento's may be accidentally sold!
We have sold:
Toys and dolls
Signed sports memoribilia
You name it, we will sell it!
I CAN PROVIDE PHOTO'S OF EVERY SALE I HAVE DONE IN THE LAST 8 YEARS TO SO YOU HOW A REAL PROFESSIONAL DOES THE JOB!!!
LET ME TURN YOUR NIGHTMARE INTO A SELLER'S DREAM!!
