"I worked with Vintage Cousins - Jana and Donna - to run an estate sale at my mom's house after my mom moved to a much smaller apartment and I had to clear out her house while living 2 hours away. Throughout the process they were extremely communicative. There were some difficult items to deal with including a baby grand piano and a large water feature and all were handled perfectly. All my concerns were addressed in a timely manner. The house and belongings were treated with care and respect. The remaining unsold items were completely dealt with between charity and clean-out and I returned to a clean, empty house as promised. Paperwork and payment following the sale were sent to me quickly. All in all I was extremely satisfied and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vintage Cousins". Debbie
