Our Testimonials

I am happy to share my experience with Doug Drew of Trading Post Estate Sales and Downsizing. Having been the caregiver to my mother for 5 years preceding her passing, I thought I was completely familiar with the family home and possessions. How wrong I was. The task of sorting, cleaning and clearing to make way for the sale of a home that was oversized for my needs became daunting. A lifetime of collecting leaves you with very emotional decisions and tasks along the way to moving on. Both Doug and Jeff provided me with the help, knowledge and compassion I so desperately needed but was unaware of. This was a task I thought I could handle on my own, but after a year of sorting and rearranging, I found myself unable to complete the job. The dynamic due (sorry Batman and Robin), provided me with choices of how to best rid myself of the unwanted. This included both an on-line auction and using their services for the removal of the leftovers that nobody else wanted either. There were other options we discussed, but my needs required a bit of speed at this time and so we devised a game plan that was executed as explained and with very satisfactory results. I would without question recommend these fine gentlemen to help you in your time of need also even if your time is for a happier reason. They were and are professional and responsible business folks.

Doug and his team are terrific! They helped me downsize 30 years of "stuff". We had a time crunch and they went out of their way to accommodate us -- and execute a very successful liquidation. I highly recommend them to anyone who is moving, downsizing or just making a change.Lisa DDecember 2018
I hired Doug Drew to sell the contents of my late parents home in early 2018. I had met with and researched a handful of estate sale companies that I found on Doug's business model immediately stood out to me from the rest, as he does 100% of the sale online and doesn't host in home tag sale madness. My parents had a houseful of exquisite home furnishings, antique collectibles and clothing that would not have appealed to the local market in which they lived, so the online exposure was far more appealing to me. Moreover, his compensation was clear and simple. Unlike many of the estate sale companies I had met who had fees for this, that and the other thing--some of which are paid upfront(don't do it!)--Doug takes a flat and fair commission after the sale. He only makes money if you do, pure and simple. When I met with Doug I was immediately taken with his knowledge, expertise and sage advice. I had just lost both parents in rapid succession and completely overwhelmed with the work that lay ahead in clearing out this house they lived in for 43+ years. He offered guidance and great advice from the start, walking me step by step through the process. He was very down to earth, genuine and very honest--even about things that I didn't want to hear but needed to know. I appreciated that directness, and throughout the process we had a great chemistry and communicating with him was a breeze. It's all too common to think your parents "stuff" is worth more then it is. And the things that you think have value usually don't, and the items you think are worthless could be the most valuable things in the house. Once he and his team began the process, they took their time and were extremely meticulous in photographing and documenting the hundreds of items and lots that would be put on the auction. They spent a full week in the house, full-time to get it all done! Once the auctions began, I was glued to the site watching each day to see the bids increase in value. The two weeks went very quickly and by the end of it all, the results far surpassed my expectations. The pickup was pretty smooth and painless. By the time I got back to the house 95% of it had been cleared out, making the job of the clean out crew a piece of cake. Overall, I am extremely pleased with Trading Post Estate Sales and Doug Drew. I never take the time to write reviews online but felt compelled to do so because of the job he and his team pulled off here. It is a very difficult and challenging job--I couldn't imagine having to do it. Beyond the great results, I am most pleased with the working relationship Doug and I developed and the ease and honesty of communication. If you find yourself faced with one of life's most difficult and challenging chapters like I was--or just in need of a major downsizing--give Doug a call. You won't regret it.Jeremy LMay 2018
Doug and his team were fantastic. Not only were they professional and efficient, they were sensitive to my situation and helped make a challenging situation manageable. The process was smooth and the results of the sale certainly exceeded my expectations. They were a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend themJudy MOctober 2017
