Hannah's Attic, thank you for doing an amazing job on Seafair weekend. I was so surprised. Most everything soldMFOctober 2014
and the money I made was certainly more than I had thought. A lot of work went into what you did. Well done.
Thank you for all your hard work! You saved my sister and me from an overwhelming, heart-wrenching task, and you
did it with such professionalism and care. My immense gratitude to you and your staff for your conscientiousness,
follow-through and commitment.
If any of my family or friends wish to sell a particular piece in one of your upcoming estate sales, may we include a
particular item? It would not be for a while, but it's nice to know if we can utilize your expertise.
Again, thank you so much for everything. Your business is an impressive one and fills a much-needed requirement.
With warmest regards,
Hannah's Attic was prompt, thoughtful and thorough in providing cleanout services for my mother's apartment at Aljoya.Stuart OfferJuly 2014
You responded quickly, provided clear advice on what property was suitable for sale or auction and what property should be donated
You quoted a firm, fair price, provided an expert crew, and a timely cleanout of the apartment, down to the last scrap of paper.
I'd particularly recommend Hannah's Attic when an on-site estate sale is not possible; there are lots of people
willing to run an estate sale for you, but not many who can provide comprehensive services to an estate when
an on-site sale is not possible.
Dear Cathye,They CurrysJune 2014
We received the check for auction proceeds and were (once again) impressed with your work and professionalism:
you know extremely well what you're doing. We have already shared your card with others - the highest
compliment we can pay!! Thank you so much for assisting us though this transition.
Cathye and Crew- Thank you SO VERY MUCH for doing an amazing job at my folks' house.Kirby TMay 2014
The task of emptying the family home, after 53 years was overwhelming for me. Your company was so helpful,
professional, courteous and thorough! Hannah' Attic was the perfect estate sale company to help me
on this part of the journey. I can't thank you enough and will recommend you highly! Nice to reconnect with my childhood
friend as well, who understands that there were NO BREYER HORSES included in sale! Thanks again
I recently used the services of Hannah’s Attic for my estate sale.JLMarch 2014
I had more than 50 years of belongings—a combination of mid-level value and everyday items—that I needed to
sort, categorize and price.
It was my family’s lifetime of possessions, and the job was daunting, exhausting, and emotional. Fortunately, I found Hannah’s Attic.
I met with owner Cathye Carnes who was equally compassionate and efficient. She explained her services and then took charge.
What had taken me months to weed through (and barely scratch the surface) took her team just a few days to expertly tackle and accomplish.
The sale was managed with professional efficiency and we grossed three times the amount we anticipated.
Afterward, the swift, expert cleanout of unsold items was another level of service for which I was so grateful.
For anyone facing the overwhelming but necessary task of emptying a house of beloved property, I highly recommend the
services of Hannah’s Attic.
Thank you so much for all your company did!! I was very glad we hired Hannah's Attic. We couldn't be happier. From startEGLDecember 2013
to finish it was a great experience. We made so much more than I would have thought. The house looked so good when you
were done and your crew even helped me with a leaky bathroom. Thanks again I will highly recommend you
I am so happy to have gone through this journey with you and your help, you will never know how much ISusie D.February 2014
appreciate you and all your support and hard work! It was so nice working with you, you really helped me
out so much... I wish you could have organized my move too!!!!
Thank you my friend!
I would not hesitate to recommend Cathye and her team at Hannah's Attic. We were not a particularly large and lucrative sale.S. RuskNovember 2013
In fact, I was a bit dejected after getting turned down by another estate sale company that made me feel like my stuff was worthless.
Cathye stepped in with confidence that she could get the job done and would take care of me in a tough situation.
This service was invaluable and it made a high stress situation so much easier. She communicated all throughout the process
and held a very successful sale given what she had to work with. The house was cleaned out as promised for a very reasonable fee.
I'm so grateful for Hannah's Attic. Thank you so much!
Moving can be a very stressful experience, especially when the need to downsize is a factor. I hired Hannah's Attic to help meSDNovember 2013
and it has been a wonderful experience!! They are so kind and support of and work so hard... I was amazed with them, and
all they did, and the tons of people that came to the Estate Sale and bought.. What a wonderful experience this whole journey
has been. Thank you Cathye and your crew!!!!
I truly appreciate the wonderful service that you and your staff provided for the recent estate sale at our home in Lake ForestCONovember 2013
Park. I am sure you know how difficult a move like ours was--where we moved from our long time residence and had to leave
many of our possessions behind. I was so very pleased with the way the sale was set up. Our sale items looked card for--
the house did not look as though it belonged to old people who couldn't cope anymore. I was not embarrassed to have
the neighbors come and shop. I have heard from several neighbors who visited the sale that your staff was so pleasant
and helpful and they were impressed that the number of shoppers in the house was limited. I appreciate that as well.
Another neighbor reported that he appreciated the fact that no cars were parked so his access to his garage was blocked.
It is a great relief to have the house empty and ready for the next owners and I have already given your name to some
others who are contemplating a move such as ours. Thank you for making a difficult transition much easier than I
thought it would be. Sincerely.
"Hannah's Attic handled an unusual situation for me with professionalism and care. I have a family member who collected/hoarded a variety of unique and/or valuable items for many years. After a serious intervention and clean out of the family member's home - the items - literally hundreds of boxes of 1000s of unsorted items - went to a 10x10 storage locker where they sat for several years. When I finally thought I could begin tackling the boxes, Cathye and Wayne met us at the storage locker, advised us how to begin, helped sort through some of the items, and even brought in an expert to appraise some of the items. Some items went to auction, some were sold in other Hannah's Attic estate sales, some in a garage sale type environment, and some were donated to a charitable organization who could actually utilize some of the unique items.ERNovember 2012
This process took several months rather than the usual weekend "Estate Sale". Cathye and Wayne did everything possible sell the items and maximize the profit for my family member. They took on a client project that was out of their "norm" and one that was likely much more work for them than their usual business model. I highly recommend Hannah's Attic. They are honest, professional, knowledgeable, and really NICE people
We want to thank Cathye Carnes of Hannah's Attic for the amazing job she and her team accomplished at our Mercer Island home recently. After the movers picked up the items we wanted at our new and downsized home, Cathye's crew spent several days organizing, pricing and displaying our remaining items, getting ready for the sale. She does all of the advertising and publicity and they work in an extremely professional, efficient and caring manner. They were aware of our neighbor's needs and concerns, including parking issues and traffic control. Immediately after the sale, she paid us in cash, complete with an itemization, of all items sold.Penny SJune 2011
An extremely important part of the service includes:
1. Remaining items are removed from the home.
2. Some items go to auction for which we will receive a percentage.
3. Some items go to the charity service of our choice.
4. The rest is hauled to the dump.
The house is then broom cleaned/vacuumed, totally empty and ready for the new owners to move in.
We highly recommend Hannah's Attic for estate sale liquidation services. They have made our move so much easier and eliminated all of the pressures and time- consuming details of finalizing those last days in our home.
Thank you Cathye, and to all of your wonderful team as well,
The Hannah's Attic crew were great to work with. It's clear they know their industry and the Puget Sound market. Most importantly, they obviously enjoy their work and are respectful of the fact that they are coming into your house, or your family's residence, to sell items that once made a house a home. They treat you and your property with the same respect they would their own family. They are at once personable, very pleasant, straightforward, concise and professional. I enthusiastically recommend them (including Frodo the Guard Dog!)Laurie R.June 2012
Cathye and Wayne are highly professional and go out of their way to accommodate their customers. They took great care in helping us make certain that only the items intended for sale were sold. This put our minds at ease so that we needn't worry that items that had sentimental value didn't get into the mix. The net "profit" far exceeded our expectations, which demonstrates their level of expertise in understanding the market. Furthermore, when the time came to have the house completely cleared so that we could move toward the upgrading phase, I was up against a deadline. Despite the fact that this was the week of Thanksgiving, Cathye and Wayne made time to return to the house and arrange for a colleague to take care of the final clearing. The house was beautifully cleared the day after Thanksgiving! They truly went that extra mile for us. We would happily recommend Hannah's Attic in the future to friends. Thank you, Cathye and WayneLauriFebruary 2011
Dear Cathye and staff of Hannah's Attic,Cynthia S.February 2010
I can't thank you enough for everything you did for us and how greatly we appreciate the effective and sensitive way you did it all. Even as organized by nature as I am, I was completely overwhelmed at the mere thought of what lied ahead in downsizing from 3,000 to 1,300 square feet. With both sets of our parents deceased, we had a lot of stuff and a lot of it had tremendous sentimental value. I knew this daunting project was something I needed help with in order to get it done and get it done on time. Fortunately, I know my limitations and knew this job required a professional. I had heard from several people what an amazing job Cathye Carnes and her team at Hannah's Attic does with estate sales. After meeting Cathye, it was clear to me I could trust her years of expertise to handle each and every detail of our sale from start to finish. Cathye truly understands how profoundly stressful and emotional the entire process is and provides every service that's needed to assure it all goes as smoothly as possible, including a team of individuals who haul off what's left from the sale to distribute to various charity organizations. I can't thank Hannah's Attic enough for knowing exactly what to do and how to do it -- all along making us feel very well taken care of in a compassionate and professional manner, while respectfully handling our feelings as well as our possessions. Bless you!
Cathye, my Mom and I couldn't be more pleased with the great job you andPam N.January 2010
Wayne did with her estate/house sale. We were in a time crunch, and you
were able to really work with a compressed schedule - being able to meet
with us the day after we contacted you, scheduling the sale within 3 weeks,
and then only having two days to do all your pricing and prep. You guys
really pulled out all the stops for us. I also appreciate your 'can do'
attitude given the difficult location of my mother's house and the great
turnout which speaks to the large following you've built up over Facebook
and other places. Receiving the sale proceeds and a detailed inventory at
10:00 am the day after the sale ended speaks to what a great process you've
set up to manage the sale. We won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone
else looking to downsize or move. Thanks again!
Cathye Carnes from Hannah's Attic was extremely helpful in managing our estate sales and working with through a horrendous hoarding situation my parents had left. The complexity of the situation and the sheer magnitude of the things to get through was overwhelming to say the least, but Cathye handled it with a constant smile and upbeat attitude. She was not only highly effective and professional at managing things from end-to-end which included sorting, pricing and handling the sales, but she took the pressure off of our family during a very traumatic moment in our lives.M. ShomakerSeptember 2009
I would highly recommend Cathye and Hannah's Attic for anyone needing to put on an estate sale as well as one trying to deal with a hoarding situation and a need for a large estate sale - no job is too big or small for her and we are extremely grateful for all the hard work she has done.
Hi Cathye,Marlene S.March 2008
Sorry I haven't written lately, but have been busy with lots of things, but nothing in particular. You know how that goes!!!
Thanks for all you have done to wrap things up for us with Eva's things. You'll never know how much we appreciated everything, and it's so good to know we won't have to move that furniture again or have to worry about anything in relation to all that.
Thanks for all your hard work, all your suggestions, your advice, and your wisdom when it came to "being there" for us for the last year. I think of you every time I look at that cute elephant you said I needed to take with me!!! How "he" made it onto that old bed we were sleeping on is still unknown, but I think he made it with Cathye's help!!!
With our thanks and love,
Cathye and Wayne - thank you so much! Our sale this weekend was over-the-top successful, thanks to your experience and professionalism. We couldn't be happier - you took the stress off our shoulders and handled the sale, allowing us to get other things done for our move! Again, thank you - we'll be happy to tell our... friends and family about your services. And thank you to Joni - you did a great job of clean up afterwards - what a great service you all provide! Thanks a million! Cheryl & DeeNovember 2006
I have called upon Cathye several times to help my clients clear out their estate items. From large lots to...complete homes.Elizabeth L.February 2009
I have called upon Cathye several times to help my clients clear out their estate items. From large lots to smaller groupings, Cathye is able to handle it all. Working quickly and efficiently to get the best prices for absolutely everything I have brought to her - she was even able to sell an old sitar!
I love working with her and her team. If you have something to sell call Cathye
Cathye is exceptional at what she does. I have referred several clients to her that look at me as the hero because Cathye was able to serve their needs above and beyond what they could expect. Cathye is always appreciative of her clients providing excellent customer service and follow-up. She has a very strong knowledge of art and antiques and can even lend tips on decorating ideas. Cathye is a must have person on your vendor list!Helen MartinMarch 2009
Hello Cathy.How are you doing? Did you suffer any problems because of the horrible rain on Monday?I want to thank you again for the successful estate sale. I'm especially grateful because water came into the basement of the house on Monday and many things would have been ruined. That would have been terribly sad.Drop me a note and tell me what you are doing. I'd love to stay in touch.Thanks againMargotFebruary 2008
Hi Cathye and Wayne,Craig H.February 2009
You guys did a great job and we really appreciated all of the work that went into the sale. Your approach to the sale enabled us to get rid of a lot of things.
I also wanted to let you know that Joni and Brian did a nice job of clearing out the house afterwards. They were communicative with me when they needed clarification. They were easy to deal with and left the house clean. She even vacuumed the entire upstairs. I would recommend them to anyone who needs these kinds of services.
Just want to say thanks to Cathye, Wayne and crew for making our Estate sale so great. It is nice to deal with people who are so good at what they do and also demonstrate unwavering integrity. Thanks so much! You not only sell treasures, you ARE treasures!Edward ZJune 2010
