We are bonded and insured, we carry worker's comp insurance and are members of both the BBB and we are Accredited Members of the American Society of Estate Liquidators (ASEL). Choosing an ASEL Accredited member helps ensure that you are working with an experienced and established professional that follows a Code of Ethics when handling your estate.
Expert Estates is the only estate liquidation company in the county with all of these credentials combined.
Expert Estates is owned by a trained CAGA Certified Appraiser. Beware of companies that mention handling appraisals for you if they do not belong an appraisal association; true appraisers are trained, tested and certified by an appraisal organization. (CAGA, ISA, and ASA are some of the most popular).
Expert Estates' owner, Lisa Kroese, has over 15 years of personal property appraisal experience and has been handling estate liquidations for over 5 years. She quickly determines and highlights the best objects for sale in your estate.
Lisa knows the current fair market prices for your fine art, antiques, vintage furniture, and collectibles. When estates have property that fall outside of her specialties (such as jewelry or antique rugs), she works with her network of appraisers to determine the right values for everything in your estate.
We know or will find the best venue for selling unique and high end property. Lisa sells property at regional and national auction houses, on Etsy, eBay, and in antique malls. She also owns an antique store in Tehachapi to provide more channels for your estate liquidation needs. Our goal is to find a new home for everything you don't want or need to keep.
When you hire us, you get a team that is hard working, careful and trustworthy. Our team will clean, sort, stage, appraise, price, market and sell your home's entire contents. We can empty the entire estate: house, garage, yard and if requested, leave your home clean and ready for marketing, rental or residence.
Our goal is to diminish your burden. We do as much or as little as you need.
We will heavily market your inventory in print and online. With over 2,000 connections and subscribers, we have one of the largest social network and mailing lists in the area.
We accept credit cards and collect and process sales tax. If your estate includes special items that might not be right for an estate sale or that might not have sold over the course of your sale, we consign them and get them into the right venue. We hold sales for as many or as few days (or weekends) as needed based on the amount of inventory you have.
We are experienced. Lisa's past California estate liquidation clients include Former NFL Defensive Tackle, Sedrick Ellis, the estate of Elaine and Jack Palance, the Estate of Dr. Birds, and the owner of Denny Refrigeration Company. Her appraisal clients include art collectors on ArtNews’ list of Top 200 Collectors, the Estate of Gianni Versace, and the Lowe Art Museum.
Early in her career, Lisa worked for one of the country's oldest auction houses. Her fine art services firm in South Florida was a Sothebys.com authorized seller. She has a degree in fine art from The Maryland Institute, College of Art.
Lisa is a seasoned event organizer. She handles crowds and unexpected emergencies quickly and gracefully. Call Lisa for free advice about your liquidation or appraisal: 661-474-7201.
