Dear Robert,Christine Waits and FamilyJanuary 2017
From the very first email and phone call, I knew you were the one to help us with the estate sale of our deceased father. Your prompt replies, courteous manner, and helpful suggestions made the entire process so much easier.
Your willingness to accommodate all the family members and their concerns made my task as the trustee so much easier. We were amazed at how quickly you were able to sort through the years of collections and research the values. The way the items were displayed were beyond words ...so organized! We would have spent months trying to do it ourselves.
lastly, I just want to thank you for being there when you said you would be there; listening; suggesting; and helping us through the difficult transition of liquidating our family home. Words are just not enough.....thank you!!!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Robert Steele, Americana Estate Sales, to handle a large estate sale in Encinitas.
He took care of everything from start to finish. My client informed me that he communicated extremely well with her. His team was very efficient and the entire process resulted in a very successful sale.
I highly recommend Robert and would use his services again when needed . Kind regards,
I am pleased to commend Robert of Americana Estate Sales. He is professional, efficient, experienced, communicative, and responsive. He and his crew are hard-working. He was quick to accept the job and get the job done in a timely manner. He is attentive to the needs of the client. The written contract is clear and is the industry's norm. With email communications, my long weekday work hours did not hinder our communication. He has connections to dispose of the unsold items according to the client's wishes. He even offered suggestions about what needs to be fixed in the house. His help is much appreciated because I could never have gotten the project done on my own.EPL in San DiegoAugust 2015
I met Rob and his wife Norma through a mutual friend. When I met Rob he mentioned that he did Estate Sales and was a real life "picker." Since meeting Rob and his wife Norma, they have been an amazing resource and attribute to my business. As a Real Estate agent, I run into a great deal of individuals who could benefit from the services that Rob and Norma provide.Billy ColestockJuly 2015
In some situations, putting the home on the market can be hectic, but Rob and Norma simplify the process. As sellers are cleaning out their garages/storage and preparing to move, they need to know the values of items and whether or not to sell or donate. This can save families lots of money!
Recently Rob and I had an opportunity to work together. He was managing the Estate Sale and I was handling the Real Estate transaction. Together we made an amazing team, specifically because of Rob's experience and dedication to getting the home on the market in a timely manner. Too often do I run into families that take an extremely long time to get their family home on the market and sold. This wasted time can make them miss the perfect opportunity to sell.
What Rob and Norma offer is an efficient and effective way for you and your family to go through items that mean a great deal and have a lot of memories. With their professional help, you will be able to go through the memories with your family and separate the items wi!h monetary value from those of personal value before renting or placing the home on the market.
I use Rob-time and time again, he is a great guy, an honest business person, and most importantly cares about what is best for everyone.
To whom it may concern:Melodie GraceJune 2015
I first met Robert when he was arranging an estate sale across the street from my elderly mother's house. He had kindly come over to let us know that there might be traffic on the street and parking could be impacted over the weekend of the sale. That struck me as conscientious and considerate so I asked for his business card for future reference. When my mother passed away in December of last year, I called Robert to handle the sale of her household.
For our family, it was a difficult time emotionally to consider selling the family home and all of the contents our folks had accumulated over 65 years of living in the same house. My siblings and I divided up what memories we wanted to keep and Robert made it easy to sell the rest; everything from coins to Christmas ornaments (who knew there were so many Hershey Kiss Christmas ornaments made) to furniture to WWII memorabilia.
Robert was respectful even in our times of second-guessing and emotional upheaval and he kept us moving forward by setting dates without being too pushy, a delicate balance. His network of experts is extensive as are his research skills and he was able to find value in many items that we did not know existed before the sale and to help with clean up and donations after the sale. Although it felt like a very long time, it was only a matter of weeks from beginning to end and throughout Robert was punctual, accessible, and always kind while being efficient.
In appreciation for managing this task for me and my family, I am writing this letter of reference for him and his team. Anyone considering an estate ·sale should know that Robert is one of a kind. He is a very stand up and straightforward person with compassion and passion for taking care of you and your family's possessions. And it is not only estate sales after a death he manages. A couple of my siblings are planning to downsize their households and, when they are ready, they will be calling Robert to manage it. That's how highly we think of him.
