About Us

Meadow Lane Estate Sales is owned by a husband and wife team, Ron & Patty. We possess a wealth of knowledge in everything from crystal and china, to sterling silver, collectibles, art and furnishings. We pride ourselves on our professionalism, knowledge, integrity, and customer service. In addition to the typical on-site estate sale, we offer a variety of services and options to customize the liquidation of your possessions using social media, online auctions, consignments, and off-site sales. Our goal is to maximize your profit with a customized plan that best suits your individual needs.

Meadow Lane Estate Sales has a loyal following of customers who enjoy attending our sales where they are always treated with the utmost courtesy. As a convenience to our customers, we accept payment via credit cards, as well as cash and checks. 

During 2016, the average attendance at one of our two-day estate sales was approximately 600 people. It's hard for a client to imagine 600 people attending their sale and it may also be concerning from the standpoint of property wear and tear, security, or damage. We are very cognizant of the care that must be taken in a client's home and we treat it as if it were our own. We do not allow customers to move their own furniture so as not to damage walls or other surfaces. In addition, we have a dedicated doorman who limits the number of people coming in and out of the sale. All customers must show their receipt at the door as they exit. We also employ enough staff to be able to properly serve customers while overseeing all areas of the home. Our staff is comprised of a knowledgeable staff of seasoned professionals with over 60 years combined experience.

How Much Does it Cost?

Our commission structure is simple -- 35% of the gross proceeds of the sale. This includes set-up and staging of your home, research, valuation and pricing. Advertising on social media, in print, and via email. Staffing of a two-day sale. Proceeds are provided to the client within three days of the end of the sale. 

After the Sale "Clean-Out"

It'll be sunny (we hope)! Temp 3247.

Meadow Lane also offers clean-out services. This entails removal of all of the contents of the home, leaving it completely empty with carpets vacuumed, hard surfaces damp mopped, cabinets vacuumed out, and ready for the new owner. The clean-out begins with donation of any unsold items, recycling, responsible disposal of paint, cleaning supplies and electronics. Finally, any items that cannot be donated or recycled are hauled away and disposed of. This process usually takes one to two days to complete.

No Pressure!

If you would like to know more about the estate sale process or would like a free consultation in your home, please do not hesitate to call Patty at 847-772-0404. We are happy to come to your home to provide you with options for the best ways to liquidate your possessions, absolutely free and with no obligation whatsoever. 

Thank you for taking the time to read about Meadow Lane Estate Sales and we look forward to assisting you with your estate sale needs!

Our Testimonials

Patty,

My wife and I are still smiling over the results of our recent estate sale provided by Meadow Lane Estate Sales. Our sale took place the first week of January with an average temperature for the two days of the sale at 6 degrees above zero. With those two thoughts in mind our assumption was that we would not be seeing many people and the sales results would be poor.

Boy were we wrong. The results were fantastic! Hundreds of people attended each day of the sale and we sold almost everything!

I cannot say enough as to how impressed we are with your organization. The efficiencies, work ethic and knowledge that your staff possesses is outstanding.

We also want to say a special thanks to both you and Ron. Your dedication to the success of our sale went above and beyond our expectations.

Thank you,

Ken & Kathy

Hi Patty,
I can't thank you and Ron enough for making my goodbye to my house so happy and memorable. Our realtor said the house was beyond spotless and is thrilled to now have you as a resource for her clients.

Patti and her husband Ron are outstanding to work with. Very professional. They did an amazing job of selling and cleaning out my house so that I could move. It was an unbelievable process to watch and experience. Their crew was also very professional, and courtesy. The staff, along with Patti and Ron, were very respectful of how emotional a
move can be.

I would highly recommend them if you're planning a move, and have a lot to get rid of. A big THANK YOU to Patti and Ron, and their staff for making this move
less stressful.

I just wanted to compliment you and let you know that this sale may have been the most well organized, staffed and run that I have been to and I have been doing this as a consumer for several years now. Every item was so clearly identified and generally priced reasonably and your staff was present and helpful throughout. I also appreciated your quick reply to my text and the fact that we were able to work out this sale/purchase so efficiently and conveniently for me. Frankly, I wasn't sure if I'd even get a reply. Not sure if this is your business or not but if so, you should be proud of what you do and how you do it.
This was all highlighted to me by contrast when I noticed and stopped by another sale in the area that I had not been aware of. It was a complete mess (literally and figuratively). Items were kind of strewn all over, many were not identified in any way or priced and it was hard to find someone to answer a question. I also thought that their pricing of many items was way out of line.
Thanks again, Alex

Dear Patty and Ron;

We didn’t really know what to expect, but knew that we could not handle the task of “downsizing” and either finding new owners or getting rid of so many things which had accumulated in our home over several decades. We knew we needed help but did not know a thing about an “estate sale”. All our apprehensions disappeared when we met you and your wonderful team. The way you quietly went about sorting things out, pricing them, and beautifully staging them while listening to some of the “stories” behind the treasures was impressive. In short, you are true professionals. You and your team were not only incredibly efficient and hardworking, you made it all look like this is fun!

Thanks again for taking on this task. You actually turned it into a wonderful event.
