President - Lakes State Bank

“I hired S. Thomas & Associates to sale out a store our bank got back two summers ago. They couldn’t of handled it better. We ended up receiving up receiving 50% more in revenues than we expected, and the service was next to none, right down to the cleanup after the sale. I would recommend their company to anyone.”

"Having them do a sale was one of the best decisions I have ever made”

I was aware of S. Thomas and Associates and Design Consign when they opened their business in Brainerd and I had attended some of their sales. I knew from being in the resale business that they did a good job and had a good reputation.

They saw how much you can put in a 5500 square foot house and a large garage and storage loft. They did it all, set up tables, priced thousands of items, set up good looking displays, and then for two days cashiered for thousands of purchasers. The results, based on dollars in, and “stuff” out, was really an amazing accomplishment.

The other benefit was the wonderful advertising S. Thomas & Associates did and the number of persons who came through that might have an interest in purchasing the house. It was really what they call a “win win” situation.
Loa Nelson, Owner, Crow Wing Antiques and Historic “Maryhill Manor"January 2015
Our house was full to the top with things we'd accumulated over the years and it was more than an ordinary garage sale could handle. We called the wonderful people at S. Thomas Estate Sale Services and they promptly came to assess what we had, set up a time line for the sale, and began organizing, displaying and pricing things.

The team was so great to work with--professional, courteous and fun! Our sale was advertised extensively and it was a huge success. I highly recommend this company.
