#2 -Biggest advertising budget spent  just to make sure your estate sale succeeds.  We invest in you and minimize your risk as a family. No one out spends us on advertising.  The bigger the crowds the more our clients make.  Don't make the mistake of shopping a lower commission company that cannot get the numbers you need for a successful sale.

“Had all the items displayed nicely and the workers were beyond nice, Andrew, you have a great team working there for you.”

- Square Register Customer 

“Those Forester Estate Sales ladies are amazing!!!”

- Square Register Customer 

#4 -We do nothing under the table:  Everything is recorded, staff are actual employees, we are fully insured, not just bonded.  We invest thousands of dollars in general liability insurance out of OUR commission.  Since home owners insurance does NOT cover estate sale, this protects your family from harm should someone fall in your home.

TOP QUESTIONS ANSWERED:

DO YOU DO APPRAISALS? Yes,  We can help you find out what your estate is worth before anything is sold or distributed, assist in settling trusts, organize family only sales and itemized valuations for attorneys and trust officers. The purpose for many appraisals includes insurance, investment, estate or equitable distribution, liquidation, charitable gift donations and IRS of which we have provided appropriate documentation.

DO YOU PAY FOR EVERYTHING? Yes and NO, we are a Full scale estate set up team, tables brought in, all items located, cleaned, researched, tagged and priced, photos taken, sales advertised on-line and in local newspaper, we bring in additional lighting, music to shop by and extremely professional, friendly workers.  We also offer carpet protection at a cost to the client if desired, and a complete clean out at a cost to the client after sale if desired.

DO YOU DEAL IN COINS AND FINE JEWLERY? Yes, We are the largest consignor of precious metals: Sterling, gold, coins and fine jewelry.  Because we go through every single coin and own a large fine jewelry store, we are able to get our clients MUCH more than if they took it to their highest buyer themselves.  This service is for FORESTER clients only.

DO YOU SELL EXPENSIVE ITEMS OUTSIDE OF SALE?  Sometimes, At the request of client, specific items can be selected from estate (before the sale) to sell for higher price outside the area.  We have a large clientle of collectors looking to pay top-dollar for specific items.  However, we prefer to keep everything in the estate for our customers, as having quality items in your sale is a great draw.

DO YOU SELL ONLINE?  Nope! We were the largest online seller in the area and sold specific items on-line, we had a paid team expert due research, list, answer questions and ship, gaining hundreds of 100% positive feed backs on our site.  Yet online sales has NOT been profitable for our clients due to ebay fees, shipping fraud and buyer fraud.  We now just use our extensive list of private high paying buyers around the USA to sell our clients rare items.

WHAT DO WE DO WITH WHAT IS LEFT?  After the sale, we bring in our clean-out team to completely empty home, sweep and vacuum. NO Conflict of interest, as we allow our clients to go through what is left FIRST, keep  or give away what ever they want before it is donated.  We are not dealers nor do take anything to our jewelry store. Clients can even clean out themselves and save a few bucks.  Don't have enough for sale or just want to get the house on the market?  We just do clean-outs, donate to local charities and get our CLIENT a receipt.

HOW DO WE KNOW IF AN ESTATE COMPANY IS HONEST? First, make sure that they are a FULL-TIME YEAR ROUND company that has a business license.  We do NOT do pre-sales of items advertised. We can sell unadvertised items before the sale if the client desires. Be sure they have a team of year round employees (not contractors paid under the table) that are insured.  Our employees must shop after the sale, 15 minutes AFTER the sale has begun like everyone else.  We have a certificate for 1-million in liability insurance, all our staff are employees with workman's compensation and we are fully bonded to protect our clients.  We do nothing "under the table". These three types of insurance are a must have when hiring an estate company.  Fortunately, we have never had to make a claim.  Don't just ask if they are insured.  Be sure whomever you hire can provide you a copy of insurances.  Don't shop based solely on commission, we pay ALL expenses and have a massive following. If the company your working with isn't honest with how they do their personal business, how can you trust them with your business?
