Gail was so wonderful to work with. She went way above and beyond the call of duty. I certainly would recommemd her to anyone who is looking to have an estate sale. Alexandria J., Clarendon HillsJanuary 2019
I am delighted and recommend highly Shop Hound estate sales! When my Mom passed away I rented a dumpster but fortunately was advised that instead of tossing, to have an estate sale. They handled everything for us, staged and priced all of the items. The estate sale was held January 13 & 14 and was efficient and pleasant. I am so thankful for their service! I was out of state and was kept informed of their progress up to and including the sale.KathleenJanuary 2017
From start to finish, they made the entire estate sale process as easy as possible. KimNovember 2016
Gail put me at ease immediately with her professionalism and knowledge of the industry. While my family removed the important papers before the estate sale, Gail assured me that we could leave the remaining objects in the house as they were and they would set up everything for the estate sale. This was a huge relief and time saver!
Gail and her staff did an amazing job of displaying everything and having enough staff on hand to accommodate the crowds. She also stayed in contact with me regarding the overall sales and double checked with me on selling additional items (such as the dining room chandelier and wall shelves) that were not originally marked for sale.
As this was my first estate sale experience and I also needed to sell the house, she also advised me on having the house listed with a real estate agent prior to the estate sale. I would have never thought to do this prior to speaking with Gail as I thought of the estate sale and selling the house as two separate transactions. Instead, many of those who came for the estate sale came back to look at the house with their real estate agents. This was a huge win for us and our buyer was one of those who came through the estate sale.
Lastly, Gail was able to help with the final clean out of the house. We paid a reasonable, hourly fee for one of her staff to be at the house while the remaining items were removed (some to charity, some to the dump). Gail was also able to recommend and provide someone to do that final clean out.
I cannot thank Gail and her staff enough for all they did to make the sale a huge success and how they helped me through the whole process.
I slept like a baby last night for the first time in months!!!! Relief is on the way! Why did I torture myself since January thinking my house certainly did not qualify as an estate? Number two; that I should handle this like I have SO many other huge projects in my life? Three: that it would give me purpose back? I guess my multi-tasking days are done. God knows, I LOVE a project but my therapist tells me to “back-off, give-up and give-in and lessen my loads”. No secret that I have lived my life best when “being needed” which explains exactly what you are doing as well: but now, I NEED YOU!PeggyApril 2016
Both John and I were immediately impressed. As a former nurse, my belief is that anyone can do a procedure - - - it takes a special person to touch another heart with comfort to reduce fear and improve a life. You breathed life back into me yesterday; even though you were unaware. You are professional (as you know, I was checking all verbiage, body language and most importantly, the closure). It’s obvious that you enjoy what you do and seem to go above and beyond. Warming up to my beloved Angelo (dog) was a huge relief; he is a work in progress.
As far as we are concerned, please accept this response as our agreement to have you conduct our estate sale. When John returns from work, we will print, sign and resend or put in the mail. Welcome to our home and hearts!
Again, welcome aboard !
Wow!!! I can't believe how much stuff you sold! You guys are great! The itemization is fantastic! You actually sold the train tracks?! Unbelievable!Sandy KosterAugust 2013
Thank you for everything. We so appreciate all you both have done. I cannot even imagine how we could have ever done this without you two! I mean that sincerely.
We know the future holds great things for you and your business. How could it not?! So, put your sunglasses on because your future is bright!
We had our estate/moving sale in April 2012. they were very organized and professional. They did a wonderful job staging and pricing our items, making it easy for shoppers to find what they were looking for. The marketing through their website awesome. The photos Gail took looked great and appealing, which we feel increased interest for potential customers. The team they brought in for the sale was both professional and friendly. They were positioned throughout the home to help customers, regulate traffic and provide oversight of the activity. We felt very comfortable leaving during the sale. A sale such as this is stressful regardless of the circumstances and Treasures provides an amazing balance of compassion, personal interest and professionalism throughout the process. Ultimately, the sale was a great success. We ended up making more than we originally thought. We would highly recommend them, but be prepared that when the sale is over, you will be saying goodbye to people who are friends.Greg and Catherine T.April 2012
My aunt was so surprised at the room she now has there. That's what happens when clutter is removed! She was in awe and so happy. She hasn't seen it like that since they bought the house. We are so grateful for everything you both did and how you served her so well. Your name will be kept and referred to as needs arise.God bless you both - it's been a pleasure working with you.LouiseFebruary 2012
We want to thank the both of you for the excellent job you did with the Estate Sale for my mom’s condo. The sale was handled very professionally, and the results were amazing. Staging the condo like a department store was incredible. Your knowledge of the value on larger items and knowing what to price them at shows that you do your homework. Your continuous communication with us offering suggestions and listening to our opinions, made us feel like a team. The marketing of the sales through your website and Craig’s List and the pictures of the various items in advance of the sale is a great marketing tool.Being our condo location had limited parking, the way you worked with the village of Westchester to get permission to park on the side street, the signage and your consideration for the other condo owners was commendable. The condo President told us that she didn’t even know we had the sale. Not one complaint from any of the owners.Frank and Pam ConstantinoJanuary 2012
We did our homework too and interviewed a number of other estate sales company's before we signed with Treasures Estate Sales. We are so glad we did. My mom would be happy that her belongings were so well cared for and now have a place in someone else’s home and will be enjoyed for many more years.
We would highly recommend that anyone planning an estate sale in the future, to use the services of Treasures Estate Sales, you will be glad you did.
We cannot thank you enough for the highly professional estate sale of the vast majority of items at my mother-in-laws home and the excellent results which you obtained. It truly was a remarkable job. Your progress with staging and organizing endless amounts of shoes, clothes, kitchen items, furniture and knick-knacks all within a couple of days was very impressive. You also maintained an outgoing and understanding attitude when I would offer suggestions and opinions.Your web site was a fantastic way to advertise our sale with countless pictures to lure customers a month in advance to our sale. The weekend of the sale, you sold virtually everything that we wanted to get rid of while staying firm on the prices of stuff we were a little attached to. By the last day of sale, we were shocked at how much sold and of course we were delighted with the earnings as well.Thank you and all of your personable, professional staff for as good as an estate sale as we could have possibly hoped for. My mother-in-law would be pleased with the care you took in all her treasures.Jan S.October 2011
Thank you for doing such a great job at my estate sale. You were professional, thorough, and very hard workers! I will definitely recommend your company to anyone I know who needs your service now or in the future.Chris RutlidgeOctober 2011
