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.

In the last three years, I lost my sister, my mom and my dad. All of my remaining relatives live elsewhere in the country, and were not available to help me clear out the house and barn. My parents had lived in their home for 45 years, and held on to everything -- like most people from their generation. After three months of trying to get the house and barn cleared out, and not getting very far, I realized that it was time to call in some professionals. My husband and I decided to call Recollections Estate Services. Cheri and Jeff are two of the most down to earth people. I immediately trusted them to do the right thing, and basically turned everything over to them physically and mentally. There were times that I was tempted to second guess what I was doing, or what they were doing, and I just had to remind myself that this is what they do for a living. They are professionals. When they found something that looked personal, they made sure to ask before moving forward. My trust was well-placed. With all of their experience in the local collectibles business, and their experience retailing, it was the best experience that it could be. I would highly recommend Recollections Estate Services to anyone who needs to clear out someone they love possessions.Kris H., Aumsville, Oregon October 2020
I am very grateful my brother found Cheri and Jeff to do the estate sale for my parents house. It was full of furniture, housewares, gift items, clothing, jewelry tools and so on. Needless to say not all items sold, but the sale was a success. Cheri and Jeff took care of all the remaining items for us. Their presence and dedication was top notch. I cannot thank them enough. I recommend them with confidence. It was a pleasant experience for me. Linda F.Jimmy and Valerie S. and Linda F. of Eugene OregonJuly 2020
We appreciate everything that you did for our parents estate sale. The estate sale with you and Jeff was one of the best experiences we have had with estate sale companies. We would definitely recommend you to all our family and friends. I must say it was a job well done from start to finish!

Thank you, "Recollections Estate Services" for handling our massive estate! There is no way we could have done this without you!

Our family would like to give a huge shout out to "Recollections Estate Services" and their incredible staff for the estate sale they held for mom the weekend of July 14th, 2017. After living on the property for over fifty years you can only imagine the amount of stuff that had accumulated. Mom, being an avid antique collector all of her adult life had lots of treasures. It was overwhelming to say the least! Being a living estate sale, mom took some of her most special treasures with her when she agreed to downsize. After the kids and grandkids were given some of the things they loved and needed it was time to call for help. Jeff and Cheri were called and they came out within a few days. They agreed to take on this massive job...thankfully It only took them five days to get ready for one of their biggest estate sales ever. The sale went on without a hitch and was a big success! We highly recommend their service. Everything was handled professionally and with compassion. They did all of the advertising, on site security, set up and sales, even had parking attendants to direct all of the traffic. Thank you, Jeff, Cheri, Marian, and their staff for making a very stressful situation for our family more pleasant than we ever imagined. Loretta M. FamilyBobby M. Springfield, OregonJuly 2017
One of the saddest times in a persons life is when you have to have an Estate sale to sell all your parents possessions. Luckily for me, I got to have a Living Estate Sale while my father is still alive. It made it a bit easier for me having his help on what he wanted to let go of and let me tell you, it was a tremendous amount of stuff. I contacted Jeff and Cheri and "Recollections Estate Services" and they were out within a few days to take a look. I was really afraid that they would not want to tackle the amount of stuff that was in the 4 bay shop - things that have been "stored" for over 30 years. Just picture a couple of hoarders and you have the picture. They accepted the challenge with grace and we scheduled the sale for 1 week later. The week before the sale, Jeff and his mother Marian came and sorted through piles and piles and made everything look great. The sale went off without a hitch and I cannot tell you how relieved I was not to have to tackle the mess myself. I would highly recommend Recollections Estate Services to anyone needing their services for Estate Sales. They are compassionate and understanding for your feelings. Thanks to Jeff and Cheri and their Team for all of your hard work! It is appreciated more than you can imagine!Tamera C. in c/o Delvan D. - Springfield, Oregon June 2017
Our company chose Recollections Estate Services to liquidate the contents of a 14,000 square foot building that we had sold. They were able to quickly and efficiently organize and catalog equipment, tools and vehicles as well as an accumulation of personal items and building materials that we no longer had a need to retain. Their professionalism and attention given to even the smallest detail, accomplished the goal within the required time frame we gave them. They are certainly at the top of our list if we ever need to clean house again and would certainly recommend them to anyone needing to sell an estate, liquidate a business or just turn items you no longer use into cash.Jake C.

Recollections Estate Services is the absolute best. Cheri and Jeff are the most amazing people. They have an unparalleled work ethic; they are honest, knowledgeable, helpful, caring, and have a quick sense of humor. I found them to be great people.Suzy P, Corvallis, OregonDecember 2020
Ginormous Ranch Sale was what they called it, and aptly so. We had a vast number of items from the tiniest tacks to large farm equipment that needed to be sorted, cleaned up or thrown away, then displayed and prices marked. Jeff was here nearly every single day for a month before the sale, working from 8:00 a.m. or before until 4:00 p.m. Cheri was here nearly every day also but spent some days home to complete the computer work which included the 120+ photographs she had taken. In the evenings they researched some of the more obscure items for prices. Cheri and Jeff worked hard after the sale as well; cleaning up and leaving the place as immaculate as was humanly possible. This sale was not one for the weak or faint of heart.
After interviewing several companies, I chose Recollections Estate Services. It was a lengthy process. One I didn’t particularly enjoy. But, overall, it was well worth it. They were the first I interviewed but, like most of my shopping, I had to see what else was out there. About a month after we first met and shortly after my final interview, they called me; just to touch base and say they were still interested. I was so happy and relieved. Because the interview process had taken so long, I was hesitant to phone them even though I knew they were who I wanted. They came out, we toured the property a second time and , as it is said, the rest is history .
I owe Cheri and Jeff of Recollections Estate Services a GINORMOUS amount of gratitude for all they did. They truly have a place in my heart.
