We are the premier estate sale company in Maryland. We have been in constant business since 1975 and our motto is simple:

Take care of your clients and they, in turn, will ensure your future success. Our specialty, is individualized service for better quality estates. Unlike other companies, we are selective of our clients to ensure we can make them the maximum profit whether it be via an estate sale or by auction if the value of the estate does not merit the service of an estate sale.

Our specialty is to come into your home and transform it into a high end gift store by organizing, researching all items, staging and then pricing all items with string tags and custom price labels. We bring in tables with full length matching table cloths and a full cashier stand with custom showcases with locks to protect your valuables. We do not slap painters tape on your items as 99% of the "other" companies do, which makes it look like a cheap inside yard sale. Higher end staging translates into much higher profits for the owner due to our extensive 40+ years of knowledge in all items of value. Our team is composed of a highly talented and thoroughly trained team with backgrounds in every aspect of business, such as: CPA, Attorney, Accountant, Contracting Expert, Retail store owner, Real Estate Experts, Licensed School Teachers, and many other reputable fields. How many other companies have these credentials?  The owner of this business performs estate sales as a full time business and takes it very seriously. Our caring clearly shows in every aspect of our commitment to you.

We are Graduate Gemologists from the Gemological Institute of America and are professional researchers and appraisers of all real property as well as automobiles, jewelry, boats, exotic cars, coins, valuable artwork, and antiques of every kind!

It'll be sunny (we hope)! Temp 2204.

Our Testimonials

While in the process of selling our home Duke Spence and Exclusive Estate Sales was referred to us by a neighbor who had used him previously. We were anxious about having an estate sale and had no idea what to expect. At my meeting with Duke he thoroughly explained the process, what to expect and what we needed to do to prepare. He and his knowledgeable staff arrived one week prior to review, establish prices and stage all items. Our home was displayed to resemble a department store!

They arrived promptly the morning(s) of the sale, had plenty of staff monitoring everything and each room, had security at the door and addressed the neighborhood parking concerns so there was no damage to property. They went above and beyond in our opinion.

This was a very stressful time for us, selling 30 plus years of personal possessions. Duke and his staff made this a seamless operation. They were all very professional, caring and respectful of our property and our feelings in the situation and made it much easier than we thought it could be. Duke was thorough, conscientious, fair and kept me off the ledge more than once! Approximately 95% of our belongings were sold which was more than we expected.

We have recommended Duke and Exclusive Estate Sales to anyone who is even considering an estate sale, he knows his stuff! We would definitely use them again if needed.

If you are considering an estate sale do not hesitate to contact Exclusive Estate Sales, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I consulted Duke Spence of Exclusive Estate Sales of Maryland (EES) to assist us with a unique whole house sale prior to a complete renovation. We requested that everything within the house be deemed sell-able from home-goods to windows, doors and ceiling fans. A marathon of questions and concerns for us, was met in-stride by Mr. Spence in a confident and professional manner.

Mr. Spence was able to provide us with an accurate assessment of earning potential and guided us through all stages of preparation through completion of our sale. We were impressed by his personal approach, clear communication skills and his strong attention to detail. For example, protecting our neighbor’s property through effective parking signage, establishing display tables with custom cloth covers and providing high quality lighting to showcase our items. Further, he possesses a strong knowledge of all topics from carpets and coins to construction and crawlspaces. His understanding and familiarity with everything under our roof gave us peace of mind that our home and items would be well represented.

Mr. Spence is a motivated, optimistic and upbeat leader of EES. His staff reflects and shares the same positive and strong work ethic. They are friendly and honest, showed creativity in staging our sale and handled all customers with professionalism. Everyone is approachable and all tasks were shared with enthusiasm.

Due to construction timing we were obligated to conduct our sale the week after Christmas. My wife and I were concerned that buyer turnout would be low during this time of the year. Further, we were faced with heavy rain, cold temperatures and overcast skies. Despite the timing and weather, we had over 11,000 web site views of our property and had approximately 3000 buyers experience our sale. We had an above average turn out and we sold 90-95% of our inventory including the KITCHEN SINK!!! We are so happy to have chosen EES as their professional presentations and vast advertising network guided us to a highly successful sale! Not only did we have the luxury to vacate our home on time and with little excess, we feel we gained a team of friends with Mr. Spence and his staff.

In closing, Duke Spence is a man of integrity, his staff is hard-working and no effort was wasted. His projection of value was accurate and all home-goods including our house were treated with care. Exclusive Estate Sales of Maryland receives our highest recommendation.

Sincerely,
Mr. & Mrs. Michael DuffyFebruary 2019
In July 2017, thinking that my husband and I were getting a contract for the sale of our house and would need to downsize before our move, I contacted several estate sale companies and had in-depth personal meetings with two, including Exclusive Estate Sales of Maryland. Duke Spence and daughter Amanda came to my house, and after meeting with them, I knew their company would be the one to handle my estate sale. Around that time, the contract fell through so I didn’t need their services, but I recommended them highly to two different sets of friends who had just sold their homes and were also downsizing. Both contracted with Duke and their estate sales were great successes. My friends couldn’t have been more pleased with Duke’s services.

As it turned out, I didn’t contract with Duke and his company until October, 2018. Our sale was scheduled for November, and the weekend before Duke and his staff entered our house, and it became a whirlwind! They were wonderful individuals—highly energetic and very knowledgeable about any type of item, from tools in the garage to fine china, crystal, and silver to fine jewelry and art work. Every item was individually priced and beautifully displayed on their cloth-covered tables or lighted display cabinets. I felt as though my home had been transformed into a fine department store or elegant gift shop—well, except for the tools. Though the tools wouldn’t have been found in a gift shop, they also were priced individually and displayed on tables in the garage, and that turned out to be the first place visited by most of the men who came to the sale!

On the days of the sale, Duke’s staff arrived early and ready to work. I can’t speak highly enough about each one of them: they were kind, professional, interacted well with the visitors to the sale and knew how to sell. As items sold, they were recorded individually and at the end of the sale, I received a full accounting of each item that sold and for what price. The sale itself and the accounting and distribution of proceeds afterwards was handled with the utmost integrity.

I have since recommended Duke Spence and Exclusive Estate Sales of Maryland to several other friends and I will continue to do so. I truly cannot imagine having any other company handle an estate sale!

In early 2018, my wife and I signed a contract with Exclusive Estate Sales of Maryland. We were selling our house and moving to a new home out of state. An important part of the move was downsizing, requiring us to part with several pieces of furniture and other items in our house. A friend of ours who had moved several months earlier recommended we contact Duke Spence of Exclusive Estate Sales of Maryland and have an estate sale.

Our experience with Duke was extraordinary. The professional manner in which he and his crew prepared the house for the sale, handled the sale, and cleaned up after the sale surpassed our expectations. Neighbors who saw the crew arrive over several days to prepare for the sale were impressed with the number of people involved and the industry with which they did their work.

When we arrived at the house after preparations were complete, we were astounded by how every item was arranged in display cases or on tables covered in linens. It was a literal showcase. When we again returned after the sale, the house had been returned to a pristine state with only a few items unsold.

The sale exceeded our expectations from both a financial and personal perspective. We are extremely pleased and recommend and endorse Exclusive Estate Sales of Maryland without reservation.

Thanks so much for this update, Duke. These are fantastic numbers and you and your crew are the reason this sale was so successful. You were all so very professional and may I say, wonderful people inside and out. We couldn't have asked for more and we feel very blessed that you all came into our lives. None of you will ever be forgotten. We have passed our accolades on to many of our friends as they will soon need your services also. Now, if there is ever anything we can do for you all, please let us know. We have one mens black t-shirt to get back to you. So sorry I missed that. Please stay in touch and make sure you have us on your email list.❤❤❤
