WOW, THERE ARE SO MANY CHOICES IN ESTATE SALE COMPANIES, HOW DO I MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE?
Check out just a couple of our TESTIMONIALS HERE!!! We have TONS of references!
Overwhelmed? Are you faced with handling an estate in Georgia and not sure how to begin? Not sure who to call or what to do,where to even start? You have contacted the right company!! Our advice to you is to know who you are hiring. Are they qualified? How are they qualified? Why are the qualified? What is included in their percentage? What will happen after the estate sale? Do they have a minimum? There are many questions to be asked!I cannot tell you how many times people have called us and said that they hired an estate sale company and they still have 75% of their items left and can we do a sale for them. Unfortunately, The Vintage Girls will not conduct an estate sale after another estate sale company has conducted a sale. So, call The Vintage Girls FIRST, so you know you will have the best!Why? The Vintage Girls have done hundreds of estate sales and are the most qualified in the business! Why? We know what sells, what is sells for, how to market, thousands of people on our email list, social media queens, and have connections all over the city. From Buckhead to Tyrone, The Vintage Girls know there stuff!!! So, don't be fooled!! Call THE VINTAGE GIRLS!!Again WHY?We know Atlanta, South Atlanta, North Atlanta, East Atlanta, and West Atlanta better than anyone. We were born and raised in ATLANTA. We know the history of this city and the treasures that are found here. This IS IMPORTANT!!
If I moved to Vermont, well I did go to school and study in Massachusetts :), so let’s say, if I moved to Virginia, went to school there too (and oh the antiques in Virginia are some great ones!!), if I moved to North Dakota (ok, I have not been there!).... I would not know the items there, like I know the south, and the northeast (school for 3 years in Massachusetts and grad program from my antique appraisal studies in New York City at NYC), and the Midwest (family from Texas and we LOVE Midwestern treasures)!
Again THIS IS IMPORTANT!!Ashley, The Owner of The Vintage Girls, grew up in Buckhead and her family owned a horse farm in North Georgia. She is highly educated (Check out her "resume"...an estate sale company SHOULD supply you with a resume!...you are giving them a key to your house and your belongings. Know who you are hiring and why they should do your sale!)
Ashley knows her stuff (as the customers say!). She knows new (Lexington to Pottery Barn), vintage (Herman Miller and Eames), antiques (from primitive, to Victorian, Renaissance to Art Nouveau). In the Estate Sale business, companies tend to "specialize" in a certain type of estate sales. You do not want to hire an estate sale company that only does newer item sales (downsizing and foreclosures) to sell items from a 1870's farmhouse. They will have no idea what a grist mill grinding wheel is or what a firkin is. You also do not want to hire a company known only to do old antique only estate sales to sell your Henredon and Maitland Smith. The Vintage Girls specialize in all types of sales and are just as knowledgeable on West Paces Ferry as they are in that 1870's farmhouse! This is the kind of estate sale you need to be looking for to conduct your estate sale!!!Call today The Vintage Girls today to set up your free consultation!GO TO OUR WEBSITE THEVINTAGEGIRLS.COM AND CHECK OUT OUR RESUME AND SO MUCH MORE!!
A little about our company and how we got started...:My name is Ashley Wheeler. I am the owner of The Vintage Girls.Growing up in an affluent part of Atlanta around lovely antiques and spending my summers in Highlands, NC running around an auction house at the age of 8, I loved antiques and unique things at a very young age. From barns to art galleries, I was intrigued.As a teenager, my mother and I frequented estate sales and antique markets all over the southeast from the East Coast to the Mid-West, and I loved every minute of it. I might have been the only kid I knew with all antiques in their room at the age of 10.At the age of 14, I discovered my first treasure at an estate sale in Atlanta, being run by a family. Ten years later, I sent my treasure to Christie's in New York, one of the top auction houses in the world, and had a profit of $18,000. So I KNOW treasures are out there to be found for YOU. (This same treasure...I grew up watching Antiques Roadshow and studying "THINGS", history has been a passion of mine!! Imagine how exciting it was for me to appear on the Antiques Roadshow in 2006 as a guest!! )At the age of 15, I was privileged to go to one of the best boarding schools in the Northeast (Thanks to my wonderful Mom!), again around the some of the best antiques in the world. Philadelphia,"Brimfield", Boston, and New York City...the museums, the shops, I was in heaven!At the age of 21, I was a part-time antique dealer and set up at various places in the Atlanta area such as Lakewood Antique Show and Scott’s, Lakewood Interiors in Sandy Springs, and The Roswell Market in Historic Roswell while working full time in the emergency medical field.As I continued to attend estate sales I saw items undervalued, undersold, and OVERPRICED (if it doesn't sell, what did you hire the estate sale company for! The HIGHEST prices in this business, does not mean the best estate sale company!!! They will be the ones that don't sell anything for you!)... and lack of concern for people’s property and I knew I could do a better job. I also saw my full time job as an asset to the estate sale business.
After working in the Emergency Medical Field for 16 years, I dealt with death and traumatic experiences day after day. In the estate sale business, usually an estate sale occurs after someone has passed or some other traumatic event has occurred and I felt that after so much experience dealing with life altering events, and my love of antiques and things, this was the right path for me.I started The Vintage Girls over 7 years ago because I love antiques and I love people.After starting The Vintage Girls, I have continued studying the field of Fine and Decorative Arts. In 2011, I attended NYU's graduate program to become an official appraiser in the field, the only estate sale company owner in Atlanta to attend this distinguished program. I am also affiliated with multiple antique organizations and societies, from Atlanta to New York City. Studying in New York, I am a member at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and have several New York connections that aid in my estate sale business.As a people person, my company’s goals are to make YOUR sale the best it can possibly be. My company prides itself in taking excellent care of your valuables in addition to marketing to and attracting high- end customers through our advertising and our extensive e-mail list of estate sale clients.Being an Atlanta native (a rarity), I know this city, I know the people, the businesses, and the neighborhoods from Tyrone to Blue Ridge...we KNOW Atlanta and we will bring the best knowledge and experience in the business.The Vintage Girls will handle all of your estate sale needs from arranging, pricing, cleaning, and displaying to the actual selling of your household contents.We will treat your family and your business like our very own.Please contact us if we can be of assistance to you for your free consultation.Whether you choose us or someone else to help you in this process, as it is a difficult one, give us the opportunity to tell you what you should be looking for in your estate sale company.

Dear Ashley and Your Whole Team,
Thank you for your service to my family during such a difficult and emotional time. Yall have gone above and beyond for us. I would recommend our service without hesitation. Your professionalism and compassion are unparalleled. I appreciate all of your honesty and setting realistic expectations for the whole process. Ya’ll provide a truly unique gift. Thank you.
"To Ashley Wheeler and Team,As the Executor of my mom's estate, and living in New York, I was overwhelmed with work to do in getting my mom's affairs in order, selling her home and its contents and getting back to New York in a reasonable period of time.The moment I met Ashley, I knew I did not have to look any further, and I didn't, to find a company to sell the contents of my mom's beautiful home for thirty years. I was literally overwhelmed with details, legal matters, both mentally and physically grueling and draining.One of the major tasks on my check list was checked off and I felt so relieved when Ashley and I scheduled the Estate Sale.The feedback that I got from friends and neighbors who attended the sale was fabulous, telling me both that they were so impressed with my mom's taste in her possessions as well as how smoothly, professionally and logically the Estate Girls ran the sale.This made me feel so completely happy about my initial judgement and impression of Ashley and her team that no dollar amount could equal.
Everything from the way she organized the items, to the spread sheet of the tally to the web site photos of both sold and unsold items, was completely professional and done just as promised.I gave Ashley total access as there was no family member to stop by at the end of the day as I am basically the one in charge, and I was already back in New York.The honesty and trust are impeccable as well. She added another amount to the final tally and I asked where it come from. She told me she sold an item as well on Ebay after the sale was over that had not sold. I know all the estate sales require implicit trust, as the owner is not present, but I would never have had a clue that something was sold outside the house sale.I recommend TVG highly, and I feel there is no comparable competition in the Atlanta area, and probably a lot larger radius as well.
"I want to congratulate you for having such dedicated and very efficient staff.
I spent some time at the sale today and was very pleased at the way they had organized and conducted the sale.
It will be my pleasure to recommend your organization to anyone interested in having an estate sale.
Mr. L. Owens
"I have been singing your praises to my friends. You do an amazing job. "
"We are very happy with the outcome and appreciate all your hard work, Ashley. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I hear of who needs your services.Thanks,
"Oh Ashley..this is Fabulous!! Thank you so much!! My neighbor directly across the street shot a pic of all of the cars & the people in a line out to the street on FB!....Great job!"
"A Fine Job! Thank you!"
The flurry of activity is over. The estate sale was a huge success. And our house sale closing is today. With all this behind us I wanted to say “WOW “and ‘Thank you’ for all the work your team did.
Upon our retirement, my wife and I decided to downsize, move into a smaller townhouse and sell all our household furnishings, starting out anew. When we first met and you introduced us to the services of The Vintage Girls, it sounded too good to be true. But we were hopeful most of this would happen as you stated. Everything happened as you stated and more. We are very impressed with your work and are grateful for the results of your efforts. We could never have done this on our own.
The pricing of our items by you was great, often asking and getting more than we would have estimated ourselves. The staging of the items was organized and thorough. Thirty years in our home resulted in lots of stuff to dispose of.
Finally, on the first morning of the sale, I had to stop by to drop off/pick up some items forgotten in the move. Our entire cul-de-sac was packed with cars, as was both sides of the street going up to the stop sign. There were people walking towards their cars with our stuff and smiles on their faces. What a huge crowd. And from the daily totals, the crowds got bigger. I should have warned the neighbors.
We saw our empty house yesterday prior to today’s closing. It was cleaned, spacious and ready for its new owners. Just amazing. And the friends we asked to stop by raved about the estate sale and the organizational structure.
My wife and I cannot thank you enough for doing such a complete and competent job of finding new owners for our years of accumulated treasures. I recommend your services to anyone looking to liquidate their furniture and belongings.
With great appreciation,
Paul and Judy Richards
"To all my new friends at The Vintage Girls.....Well, the estate sale is now over, our home closed on time and we have now made the transition into our lake home is SC. Whew~ what a whirlwind!! I hate MOVING! With that being said, I realize I never could have done it all without, The Vintage Girls!Having an Estate Sale was a BIG question for me as I have hosted a slew of successful 'Garage Sales' in the past so, I thought, "how hard could a moving or estate sale really be??". But, when I walked around and saw all I had to sell in a 10,000 sq. ft. home furnished to the brim, I realized this challenge might be a bit more than I could handle & maybe I needed to rethink running this on my own....DUH.... BOY, AM I GLAD I DID!! The amount of work entailed to set up for the sale was more than I imagined & without the help from TVG, I would never have gotten through it. You gals showed up on schedule & got right to work. Everyone had their own jobs and areas of expertise but also worked well together as a team. Efficiency is important in trying to run something like this and you all demonstrated that. We had our moments (haha!!) as it is stressful for the homeowner to watch what is transpiring in their home. All in all, we had some fun times & I can honestly say, I met some really wonderful folks - all of you on board at TVG, as well as some of the 'customers' in our home!! Although it's never easy to watch your personal possessions walk out the front doors (even when you want them too), after a day of being with all of you & watching the numbers begin to add up..... I quickly learned to HELP push the items out of our home!!! LOL!!Once we decide to sell our lake home, I will not think twice about inviting & hiring TVG to run my next Estate Sale from SC! I had a tough goal to meet with regards to how much I had hoped to sell & will never forget the day we made a pretend 'drum role' while Ashley announced our grand total!!! My goal was not only met, but surpassed (and I know TVG was too), & we all had tears in our eyes.... how often does that happen in these financial times??! I thank you all for a successful sale, a heartwarming experience & many, many laughs! It is something I truly will never forget & neither will my family. I'd still like to come work w/you gals some day... staging or selling.... I LOVE BOTH! Hugs to all of you & I look forward to seeing you again soon!
Warmly,Julie DeBaccoPS... Kodi & Kenzi send their 'wet kisses' to each one of you!!"

(Via Electronic Delivery)Dear Ashley:I’m writing to express my appreciation for The Vintage Girl’s superbly choreographed liquidation of my household. Your staff exceeded all expectations. Recognizing that the house was over-flowing with personal goods, I was concerned that I’d be left after the sale with the burdensome task of donating unsold furniture and other property. To my pleasant surprise, the house was completely empty when the sale concluded. You liquidated valuable assets; but you also sold the tough stuff - - door mats, curtains, Tupperware, can openers, etc. You left nothing for me to do except turn-off the lights and lock the doors. I can’t thank you enough for your efforts. Simply put, you’re amazing !!!Sincerely,Bob Moore"
