Bolo's is #1 in the SF Bay Area and a Luxury Property Specialist. We are trusted by our client base and have an extremely high referral rate. Our vetted buyer pool is not afraid to spend money !!
Fast - A typical property is completely emptied in 3 days.
Economical - Controlling fixed property costs and time to market is our jam.. Estate Sales simply do not work. Set up time plus 3 days sale. The reality is only around 40% of items sell. So expect extra time to be wasted emptying the property. Fixed property costs > profits
Eco-Friendly and Socially Responsible - We forward as many items as possible to local nonprofits, ie food banks, shelters and donation centers. All Chemical and hazardous wastes are all disposed of properly.
Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 3152.
Connected - We have direct access to Bonhams in San Francisco for high valued items. We can also make high level referrals to local real estate professionals. Typically this referral results in lower commissions
Flexible - If a property is going to be listed for sale we can apply a portion of our fees to escrow. This does not include our fixed costs.
Followers - We have a following of over 5500 local collectors, wholesalers and individuals who receive email updates about upcoming inventory. All looking for hidden treasures. Your personal property will find a good home.
The process:- Once contracts are signed and all keepsakes are removed we show up and start the sorting process. A typical job runs from 8-12 hours total.
1 Donation. We try to support as many nonprofits as possible
2 Distribution. We have followers looking for treasures and try to pass on as many items as possible to good homes
3 Recycle. Metals and hazardous waste are all processed properly.
4 Dump. Sadly there will be items that can not be processed, ie mattresses.
We use the word "Estate" loosely. Our services apply to relocations, downsizing, trusts and probates.
