We are both a personal property appraisal and estate sale firm. The estate sale part of our business has developed steadily over 40 years. People ask us for different services because they have different needs. Most of the time we do sales on the premises, meaning in the house or apartment where the items are located. Other times, we pick up and move items to our showroom (6,000 sqft) for sale or clients bring items to us. Some deliver jewelry, or a collection, or boxes of vintage items to us to sale on their behalf. We sell at 25% commission and ask for a 3-month contract during which time we keep offering the items at gradually discounted prices until sold. At the end of the period we donate unsold items or our clients are welcome to take them back.
We are known for fair prices and good displays because we endeavor to recreate original room settings. We usually have time to do minor repairs and clean items in order to fetch a better price. Our clients always thank us for this as well as for providing a good time at our sales.
We are qualified to appraise items in order to provide an insurance value, estate value, resale value, or bankruptcy value. Our appraisal service is charged at $180/hour, and travel at $90/hour, both in quarter-hour increments.
Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 350.
