Potpourri conducted an estate sale for me in September, 2018. The professionalism and support of Mary, the head of Potpourri, and her crew was exceptional. The sale was conducted over 5 days and the set-up in advance was conducted over two weeks. I have an eclectic taste, so my items were unconventional and ranged from unusual furniture and art displays, Paleolithic cave art, heavy exercise equipment, metal lawn art, science fiction props, laserdiscs, audio and video equipment and too many other things to mention. Mary and her crew were up to the challenge. They researched everything to find the most reasonable prices and then staged my house to show and illuminate everything to promote sales. Hundreds of people visited, drawn by Potpourri's excellent reputation, and purchased nearly everything, both inside and out. Potpourri cleaned my house afterwards and promptly paid me the proceeds of sale. The sale experience was not stressful and was indeed very interesting. My conversations with Mary and the intelligent and kind Potpourri staff are memorable and highlight the exceptional service that was provided. Potpourri has my highest recommendation for estate sales.Joel BensonOctober 2018
To the crew of Potpourri Estate Sales!Becky-Barrington Hills, ILMay 2016
Just one big, HUGE THANK YOU. I can't fully express my gratitude for all you did for us!
We couldn't have imagined in our wildest dreams how successful the sale would be!
I keep picturing what might have happened had I tried to run the sale myself; what a disaster that would have been!
This sale required all your experience and professionalism you and your staff brought to bear.
The other company that came out before you had our expectations pretty low; so to have done so well was just amazing!
Thank you again for all of your understanding, outing us first and being so flexible , and for helping us prevail during this very difficult time.
Potpourri Estate Sales is the best! I will tell everyone I know about you.
We recently had an estate sale in Des Plaines. We had so much stuff that it took your wonderful crew several weeks to get it ready. I must say that I was quite impressed with their care and honesty. The initial 3 day sale turned into a successful 4 day sale. And with Anna Marie experience suggested yet another day the following week which resulted in another successful sale. I really enjoyed working with Anna Marie, Laurie, Mary Ann, Pam, Molly, John and Debbie. You really have a great group of people working with you. We will gladly share our experience with everyone!Paula and Keith PJune 2016
Admittedly we were very nervous about turning over our belongings for an estate sale, as we are moving out of state and have been at our other house most of the time. Anna Marie and her crew were TRUE professionals! Their care in setting up and pricing was admirable and mind blowing. They used special lighting to highlight the items and it was amazing. They research carefully and set prices to help homeowners maximize their profits, yet still offering competitive pricing for buyers. We are so happy we chose Potpourri and so blessed to have Anne Marie and her crew be the "worker bees" they were in making our sale a huge success.Art and ReneeJune 2018
Absolutely blown away by Ann Marie, Mary, and her team in managing my parent’s estate sale. Three words sum it up for me - Honest, Efficient and Caring. While going thru my parent’s home, the team found things that they could have sold but knew items were heirlooms. One member found over $1000 in cash stashed away in an envelope in one of the dresser drawers!!!
My parents had accumulated so many things over the 60 years they lived in their home - including “adopting” things from their parent’s homes. Ann Marie & team went through every area of the house including taking things down from two attics. They hand washed many of the items and then staged merchandise in the most creative / appealing way. As a home decorator with 20 years of experience I found myself saying “Oh, what a fabulous display… how creative… WOW/double WOW”.
Obviously making money was the incentive and this team were extremely focused, kept payroll to a minimum, priced everything right and worked an extra day to get as many sales as possible.
In summary, finding a reputable estate sales team is hard enough but finding one that you can count on and that looks out for your interest seems impossible. Take my word, this group is top-notch - you will not be disappointed if you hire them for your sale.
