Barbara J. Pickett is a Certified Personal Property Appraiser and has been facilitating Estate Sales in Southern California for over 20 years. Her qualifications can be viewed at 

Just added: Home Watch & House Sitting Service! 

Addition of this service was a natural evolution! While setting up and holding Estate Sales, Barbara often helped find new homes for pets, shipped cable, internet & phone boxes, checked windows & doors for security,  took in and forwarded the mail, watered plants and made sure the house looked "lived-in" while she was working.  Who better to watch your home than someone who understands the value of your personal items? 

This sale description was copied from EstateSales.NET on 5/28/2017 (104-200-6:28:01 PM). Please check there for accurate up-to-date information (224-54).

There are times when an Estate Sale is not feasible, but the home needs to be looked after until it is sold. The family may live a long distance away and it is inconvenient to visit or stay in the home to take care of the small details. Real Estate Agents that list the homes do not always have the time to attend to the mail or water plants to keep the home looking "fresh" while it is on the market. So, offering a Home Watch Service seemed to be a great way to free the  families, friends and Real Estate Agents from the daily details, allowing them to concentrate on the more important issues surrounding the settling of an Estate or a Real Estate Relocation Sale. 

To speak with Barbara or set up an appointment, please call or email  562-208-8909

Please allow up to 48 hours for a return phone call. Thank you for your patience!
