Our Testimonials

We worked with Donnelly & Donnelly when my mother moved (and downsized) across the country. From the beginning Cathie was responsive and professional. I liked that I wasn’t up charged for credit card fees or advertising. My mom was not at all organized and it was honestly chaotic. But Cathie was undaunted and told us not to worry that she had it from there on. It was a relief because I live in Oregon and work full time. She got to work right away to set up the sale and reached out for questions. The icing on the cake was that my mom accidentally left my father’s ashes behind and Cathie very quickly shipped them to her!! Despite a pandemic going on, Donnelly & Donnelly held a successful sale and my mom was very happy with the proceeds. I highly recommend this company to help families through the challenge of an estate sale!Sarah HJuly 2020
My brothers and I used Donnelly and Donnelly for our estate sale after the death of our mother. We could not have been more pleased.

First, my parents had lived in the house for 70 years and had an enormous amount of stuff. Donnelly and Donnelly did a masterful job of organizing and displaying everything. When people came to the sale it was easy for people to see everything and given the volume of material that was quite an accomplishment.

Second, my parents had been collectors. For example, they had a lot of Asian artwork and items. Donnelly and Donnelly not only knew how to contact people who would likely be interested in these items, but they could tell the difference between an inexpensive reproduction and a genuine antique. My brothers and I would have been lost trying to price everything.

Third, they handled everything. They have an extensive email list they used to generate customers. They set everything up, handled sales, dealt with sales tax, and everything else. All we had to do was receive the final check.

Lastly, they did all of this under very difficult circumstances. Shortly before the sale was to take place the county was placed in lockdown due to COVID. They still made everything ready and when sales could begin again they very successfully ran it. We received far more income from the sale than we had expected before the COVID restrictions.

I LOOOOOOVE going to sales put on by Donnelly & Donnelly!
- Cathie is reasonable in pricing, great as a professional retailer,
- her helpers are superb & keep a close eye on valuables (so no one pockets any, or the piece you selected won't be taken by someone else!), so I thankful they are there,
- then there's Murphy.... an estate sale wouldn't be the same without his jovial greeting, assistance, knowledge of everything in the garage, garden, or basement!!!!

Thank you for always making your estate sales well organized, priced, and an enjoyable experience for us consumers. We really appreciate you and your efforts.

Cathie and Murphy,

You guys are GREAT! Thank you so much for taking your time and sharing your expertise with us. You are so knowledgeable, we were very impressed with all of your insights about estate sales that you so generously gave to us today. It’s so unfortunate that the Covid-19 pandemic is restricting individuals from being together and mutually benefitting. Lastly, the photographs that you took very accurately show items that we are sorting through. We will highly recommend you to others!

With deep appreciation and best wishes.

This is a long overdue note of thanks for the magnificent way you handled the estate sale at our now former home.
I had a few qualms before opening our home to what sounded like possible chaos and loss of privacy as people came to see what we had to offer.
In fact, you handled it all so professionally and expertly, that you created order out of chaos!
I loved peeking in at your progress and even wished I could also buy my own stuff, so attractively it was presented.
We were treated respectfully and collegially by you and we even made a lot of money from the sale.
There was zero damage to house and garden. I'd do it again if you were in charge.
Thanks so much for doing all the work and making this a good experience for us!

Yours gratefully
