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 my husband lost his Mother and then her husband just a few months apart, he was faced with a messy estate. We were over the top frustrated, confused and had no idea how to move forward. A family member suggested an estate sale. By chance I found Recollections to call, and I am so forever grateful I did. From the first phone call, to meeting Cheri and Jeff, and until the end when nothing was left in the house was smooth sailing. For us anyway. Cheri and Jeff went above and beyond to clear out the home that had been in the family for 50 years. Believe me, it wasn't a pretty sight. They had to do more than what was first expected but they did it for us and came through. They are a team that work miracles. We met with them on a Monday, and they had the house completely cleaned out the following Thursday. We are so grateful to Cheri and Jeff and hope we have them as new friends.
I have no question you will be thrilled with their work. We highly recommend them to anyone that wants honesty, hard work, and people that truly care about their customers. Thank you Cheri and Jeff.

"My parents recently moved after being in their home for 30 years. Cheri and Jeff did an incredible job of sorting through all of their things, setting up wonderfully artistic and pretty displays so their home looked like an antique store, preparing a gorgeous online brochure, and hosting the big estate sale. Afterwards, they took care of donating everything that didn't sell, and leaving the house completely empty and ready to prepare for sale. I literally cannot express the relief we all felt to know that such kind, reliable, positive people were taking care of everything while our family dealt with other critical issues. I can't imagine choosing any other way of emptying a house, especially because other aspects of this time in our lives were absolutely overwhelming. They were upbeat, professional, detail oriented, and absolutely lovely to deal with in every way. We could not recommend them more highly!"

Cheri and Jeff were very professional and organized from the start! They communicated well throughout the process and made everything a breeze for us. We felt very comfortable and confident every step of the way. They were punctual and knowledgeable about marketing and executing the estate sale of a large home with many items to sell.

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.
