* NOTE: We are truly located in Baltimore, MD.  We know our immediate Baltimore market and our customer following is from the Baltimore market.  If your sale is in Baltimore/Harford/Carroll County or Baltimore City, our company is the one to choose.  We know the people, places and pricing!  

We run estate sales, not "transition services".  Meaning that we handle all aspects of selling your items,  We do not facilitate moving into the new facility, designing living spaces or handle estate planning, we merely run the sale.  if you need to liquidate your estate, for the maximum profit, Sunrise Estate Sales is the company to select. We can also assist with having the entire property liquidated of remaining contents after the sale.  

How SUNRISE ESTATE SALES is different than other companies:

1. Experience: over 25 years experience in antiques, ebay, sales, marketing... We have owned stores, done antique & collectibles sales up & down the coast, listed on ebay and handled estate sales for decades.

2.  Buyer base: we have a proprietary database of over 850 email addresses of previous buyers at our sales.

3. Advertising: we heavily advertise your estate sale.  We utilize multiple online sites and resources, email database, professionally made road/directional signs & strategic marketing.  Unlike other companies, we always post well over 100 pictures of sale items and your sale is always listed for at least one week in advance of the sale date.

The first rule: Do not throw out or donate anything, almost everything is able to be sold by us.

SUNRISE ESTATE SALES is a family-owned team with well over 40 years experience with antiques, collectibles, artwork and estate & general sales.  As a family-owned service, we have expertise in many specific areas: furniture, china, linens, artwork, glassware, rugs, silver, time pieces, tools, outdoor equipment and others.  Our employees are experienced, courteous, considerate and highly proficient. Sunrise Estate Sales will take all the work and emotion out of handling your entire estate, while maximizing on time and revenue.  Our previous customer email database contains over 600 addresses and we average between 300-500 visitors at each of our sales.  We average 2-3 estate sales each month, so we definitely have the desired experience.   We are experts at organizing, staging, displaying, marketing and selling. We take the time and heavily advertise your sale for maximum exposure, attendance and sales.  We post at least 100 pictures of your sale items and also list specific pieces individually.  In addition to professionally printed street signs, posted at strategic intersections for maximum visibility.

There are many reasons why the family home may need to be sold and the possessions liquidated such as the death of a loved one, a "life changing" event with the need for a smaller residence or the need for professional health care, downsizing, foreclosure or moving.

There are several approaches, but it is a proven fact that an in-home estate sale is the best option for selling valued personal property (antiques, collectibles, art, jewelry, silver, crystal, china, furniture, rugs, etc.). Unlike sending your items to auction, there are no transportation or storage fees,we control the pricing not the buyers and you receive payment within one business week instead of waiting for a month or more. We know the market and price each item fairly, in order to earn the most for our Client, while ensuring that all items sell. 

Families and executors need to take into consideration a number of important concerns:

TIME - it will take a considerable amount of time to organize a successful sale.
DETACHMENT - selling family heirlooms and memories can be very difficult.
PRICING - a wide range of knowledge will be needed to price antiques, art, collectibles, and every day household items.
EQUIPMENT - display cases, display shelving, tables and covers, packing materials, highly noticeable street signs, etc.
EXPERIENCE - knowledge of how to run a successful estate sale such as placing ads, times and days to hold the sale.
ENERGY - moving furniture, packing and unpacking boxes, arranging and pricing of items.
SELLING - being comfortable and knowledgeable negotiating with dealers, strangers, even neighbors and family.
