ConsignWorks is New England's premier, full service estate and moving sale company!

     Since 2004, we have proudly served the Boston/Metro West, Central Mass, Rhode Island, and Connecticut communities. As the area's premier estate sale company, we have run hundreds of moving and estate sales, nonprofit fundraising events each year, right here in New England.  Our sales span everything from antiques to modern and contemporary furniture, decor and furnishings, average homes to the largest estates. (Our largest sale had over 2,200 attendees!)

     Why is Consignworks different? Selling furniture, home furnishings, antiques and quality items IS our business--we know our markets and buyers as well as the items we sell.  Our roots are in antiques, furniture sales, fund-raising and retail. We handle estates with antiques and collectibles as well as those with contemporary furnishings. Our own experienced, knowledgeable, and professional staff personally handle each estate sale. The professional staff of full-time and permanent part-time specialists have years of direct experience in a variety of areas, including antiques, furniture sales, appraisals,  public and charity fund-raising, retail and more, so you can be sure your items are properly identified, and your sale expertly managed. Our "bench" is deep with experience, and our sales are properly staffed, with 6 to 25 associates per sale, and with one or more cashiers and our own movers.  Employees are bonded to $30,000, and we have complete and comprehensive insurance for general liability, workmen's comp, theft, fire, damage and more. An insurance binder is always provided. 

     We design a custom online picture gallery for each sale so buyers can easily view sale items and descriptions. We accept credit cards and checks, which results in higher sales results, and our sell-through rates are typically 80-99% for each sale. Our references/testimonials are UNMATCHED, and we are highly recommended by top realtors, move managers, estate clients and buyers. 

     Our estate sale process is professional, and comprehensive, and completely transparent-from fully documented inventories and price schedules, individual invoices for each sale, fully-staged, fully tagged sales (yes, we tag almost everything), donations and furniture pickups, clean-outs and more. Pricing is fully disclosed and fully documented for clients on a material inventory schedule. Post-sale, our client's receive their check within 10 days along with the material inventory schedule. No other company provides this level of detail and transparency.

We NEVER enhance sales by bringing in other items such as jewelry or memorabilia--we are here to sell YOUR items only. We DO NOT buy-out estates at the end of the sale. We will work with our clients to identify items for optional post-sales, donations or disposal. We are A+ BBB certified in both Central MA and the Greater Boston/Metro West area. Our associates are specialists in antiques, art, china, pottery and collectibles.  

As a local company, our staff are members of  various antiques, collectibles and civic organizations and active within non-profit auction and fund-raising events in Wellesley, Wayland and metro Boston. We partner with the finest area companies and auction houses to find the right market, before the sale and after.  Sometimes, estate sales do not find the right buyer for a special item, a work of art, or fine antique, and should never be liquidated for a quick sale. We will find the right buyer or channel for you, from auction houses, on-line marketplaces, high end consignment stores, specialty shops and dealers.

Our Testimonials

Last month we worked with Debra Bacon at Consignworks for our estate sale. It was a pleasure working with her and she exceeded our expectations. She was very professional, easy to work with and managed the whole process from the start, from interview and assessment to staging and pricing and finally to the day of the sale. She was the only consignment pro who recommended having a two-day sale, Saturday and Sunday, which helped to clear out the remaining items very well.

Furthermore, it wasn’t easy emotionally going through the estate sale after so many years of memories with each items. Deb understood it well and handled the whole process with care. I recommend her highly!

K. Kim, Belmont MA July 2017
There is nothing easy about saying good bye to the house you built and lived in for 33 years! There is nothing easy about getting rid of the things you loved, things that made you happy, things you were so lucky to bye and to afford. But you get older and move on, you retire and have to say many good byes. And you need a lot of help. Not just from professionals, but from the people who feel for you, hold your hand and make you feel better. So you hire the Consignworks Estate Sales of Wellesley Hills and you got much more than Estate Sales company. We were just so lucky! Deb and her Mom Linda became our friends, caretakers, mentors and guiding stars. They worked tirelessly with us, supported us and prepared us for the sale. The pricing process was meticulous, fair and sophisticated with use of internet and research. They consulted the specialists and spent many days and hours to prepare for the sale. They brought all the right people to help during the sale. The photos and advertising were done professionally, and all of the preparations had paid off. What a difference the professional, attentive and friendly service could make! Thank you Deb and Linda! and all the people in the company. You really made a difference!

We recently used Consign Works to conduct an estate sale with a house literally packed from basement to attic, and Consign Works did a truly amazing job. The process started with an in-person visit from the owner, Deb. She took the time to assess/evaluate the volume and variety of items to be sold, including antiques and collectibles, jewelry, clothing, furniture and house wares. Surprisingly, Deb then offered options available to us moving forward, with varying levels of Consign Works involvement. It was quite refreshing to hear choices that gave us the ability to decide how much assistance we needed.
We opted to engage Deb and Consign Works to handle the entire process from start to finish, and they really stepped up to the task. Deb and her staging director, Linda. demonstrated a deep knowledge of antiques/collectibles as well as the other target markets. Additionally, they spent extra time researching current market prices in order to maximize revenue. Deb’s team worked tirelessly in preparation for the sale, sorting, organizing, staging, pricing, then running the sale (and if you know estate sales, they can be quite hectic and stressful). Deb and her team handled everything with style, professionalism, integrity and humor.
Deb also showed a caring and sensitivity to the circumstances that gave rise to the need for an estate sale. Receiving such a personal touch unquestionably made the process easier and less distressing. And in the end, Deb and Consign Works achieved a fantastic result for us, leaving no doubt that Consign Works is nothing short of first rate. Accordingly, I don’t hesitate to give Deb and Consign Works my absolute highest recommendation.

Andy G. Needham, MA April 2017
Working with Deb and her Consignworks team on our estate sale was a real pleasure and greatly reduced the stress of emptying our parents' home. Their careful research turned up items that we never knew had value, and the interest they generated through their detailed website information and marketing brought in a lot of buyers and great sale prices. They truly went above and beyond in preparing the house for the sale and making sure it was a big success, even despite a snowstorm the day before! Most importantly for us, they were respectful of our family and made sure to alert us to personal items they discovered and thought we might want to keep, and they organized everything expertly to display our home and belongings in the best light. I would highly recommend Consignworks!
L.D. Concord, MAMarch 2017
I recently sold my parents’ home in Wellesley, MA and, as part of that process, needed to empty the home of its 50 years of accumulated possessions.  Adding to the complexity of this job was the fact that my siblings and I no longer live in the Boston area and would need to manage the estate sale process remotely.   I was introduced to ConsignWorks by our real estate broker and was assured that Debra and her team would handle the estate sale process with the highest level of professionalism and accountability.  This turned out to be exactly the case.  First, due to the need to coordinate the sale with my mother’s move from the house (and our travel in from out of state), Debra arranged our estate sale with far less notice than she usually requires – a huge accommodation for us and much more work for her.   She also coordinated her detailed, pre-sale inventory in such a way that my siblings and I were permitted to remove heirloom possessions that we intended to keep.  Then, after I had returned home and once her sale began, she kept in constant contact with me during the course of the two-day sale process to let me know how things were going and to approve pricing on a select number of pieces.  Her team was a pleasure to deal with and her post-sale financial accounting was immaculate and very professionally presented.  It is clear that Debra has a passion for her work and that she very much enjoys helping families through what can often be an emotional process.  I would recommend ConsignWorks’ services to anyone preparing for an estate (or similar) sale and can report that I have no reservations or criticisms about my experience with the company, Debra or her remarkable staff.
