We, Jeff and Cheri, have been taking care of families during the most difficult times and/or to just help them with any downsizing that they may require for nearly 12 years. Our hearts desire is to continue on with our legacy of being the most compassionate and 
having the best Estate Services around.

We have had over 31 years experience with dealing in Antiques, Collectibles, Vintage, Mid-Century Modern, as well as Household, Vehicles, Farm/Farm Equipment and even Industrial. We do the research and also have the knowledge that will best benefit our clientele. Please refer to our “Customer Referrals” for more details.

In April 2019, we decided to sell our Antique Mall that we operated since October 2013.
​Upon selling, we decided that Estate Sale Services is our true passion and that we want to continue that portion of our business and that is how “Recollections” came about.
We love learning about the history of the families that we serve and it really touches us to hear stories from customers that have also known or been part of our clienteles lives.

​Truly, “Our Clients Are More Than A Source Of Revenue To Us”.

Our Testimonials

When a relative suddenly died, I found myself overwhelmed by the requirement of liquidating the estate which consisted of a house and several outbuildings spread over 2 acres that were full of years of accumulation. I knew it was far, far beyond a garage sale or other means that we could handle but I hated the idea of bringing in an estate sales business. I had heard so many horror stories of shady business practices, questionable integrity and horrible outcomes that I just didn’t want to go there – but I had no choice.

Fortunately, a neighbor suggested that I contact RES (Recollections Estate Services). I contacted Cheri and Jeff and they came out to the property for a walk-through and interview. We peppered them with questions about their business and how they conducted sales, and we were thoroughly impressed with their candor and friendly willingness to talk. They came across as truly nice people, totally honest, hardworking and very knowledgeable about estate sales. I have considerable experience with hiring, interviews and gauging people, and I found myself completely comfortable with their proposal. We hired them that day and one of their parting comments was, “Don’t worry, we’ve got this”, and that’s precisely what happened.

RES conducted an excellent sale, did what they’d said they would do, and they did it on time. They put a lot of work into cleaning and preparing, staging, researching and pricing items for sale. They did a great job communicating with us and making sure that we knew what was happening. By necessity, the sale was spread out among the different buildings, but they were ready with wonderful, friendly staff and a plan to handle the crowd. When it was all done, the property was empty and ready to be sold.

I would highly recommend RES to anyone in need of assistance with an estate sale. If I ever have to do this again (heaven forbid), they will be the ones I call.

After the death of our father we were faced with the physically and emotionally daunting task of getting the family home ready for sale. After more than 60 years in a big old house that is now more than 100 years old, the job seemed almost insurmountable. We sorted through decades of memories. piles of paper, and lots and lots of old “stuff” and finally hired Recollections to orchestrate and manage an estate sale for us. It was a great choice: after the family had gone through everything Jeff and Cheri came in and took over the process of sorting, preparing, and displaying a huge collection of items big and small. From little knick-knacks to appliances and clothing and historical items, and even a piano, they made sense of all of it. In the process they got rid of the items that were broken and falling apart, and frankly a lot of things that were just old junk, taking them to the landfill or recycling them as appropriate. After more than three weeks of very long days they staged a busy and successful sale. After the last customer had left, they had a resale company come in and take away virtually everything that was left.

The end result was that we had an empty house, broom clean (even the basement!) and the family received a nice check that we donated to the OSU Foundation to help fund a scholarship for deserving students. The whole process was done with kindness and good humor, and Recollections made the difficult task of saying goodbye to the home we all grew up in as smooth as possible. We recommend them without reservation. They were great.

The Process and The Blessing.
We interviewed several auction/estate businesses and found Jeff and Cheri were the perfect fit for our project. It truly was a Blessing to get to work with them. Our family enjoyed their humor, kindness and above all the work ethic and talent that they used to pull together the estate sale for two long standing Sweet Home businesses. We were fortunate to hold this on the last sunny weekend in mid-October 2022.They have a significant following that attend and also utilize the local media services to attract an excited crowd. We were amazed at the amount of product Jeff could sort through, set his tables up and display in a very attractive manner at an incredible pace. Their knowledge of presentation is tremendous. We truly enjoyed Cheri and her crew that helped customers accumulate their purchases before checkout in such an organized manner. They have a game plan that works very efficiently. Cheri works behind the scenes uploading the photos and getting out the advance advertising. We had a wide variety of items and they always coordinated with us on any questions, input or suggestions we had. You couldn't ask for a better team than Jeff and Cheri !!! Recommended 100%.
