First Rule of Order — Don’t Throw Anything Away!

We will sell anything and everything, as long as it’s legal! Every item of clothing, cleaning supplies, knick-knack to every nut and bolt in the garage is a potential sale. So don’t throw anything away until we have had our free initial consultation. You could be throwing away money!

What areas do you work in?

California and Nevada predominately but, we  will travel to any state to handle a sale for you.

Do you do off-site sales?

Yes, we can arrange to have the contents of the home moved to an offsite location and have the sale there.  We also will do buyouts if preferred.

Do you inventory all items sold?

Yes, we have a professional software program that allows us to inventory each item and label it with a bar code, after the sale you will get a complete inventory of all items sold during the estate sale.

We don’t live in the area but need your help. Can you still help us?

Absolutely!  This is a very common occurrence for me.  If you are handling an estate long distance I can help you find the family treasures you want to keep and ship them to you, email the contracts to you, arrange for key pick up and handle the entire estate sale even though you do not live in the area.

Do you charge a state sales tax at your sales?

Yes. California state requires that we charge a sales tax, and we follow the law.

Are you insured?

Yes, I carry liability insurance. I ask that you keep homeowners insurance for the estates protection on the property during the sale as well.  I also carry E&O insurance for all real estate transactions.

Who usually hires you?

People downsizing to a smaller home, family members, assisted living situations, executors, conservators, attorneys, Trustees and Real Estate agents. Also, people going through foreclosure that need to move or bankruptcy trustees. Everything is handled discreetly and professionally. I have handled everything from mega family estates to little cabins in the mountains.

Do you sell vehicles and boats?

Yes, absolutely.

Do you pay the cost for all advertising?

Yes, this is part of the percentage of sale we charge.

What percentage do you charge?

Between 40 and 50% depending on sale location and contents. This includes all advertising costs, preparing the sale, pricing all items, running the sale and additional staff members during event.

How do we know if we have enough stuff for a sale?

We offer a FREE consultation, and at that time, we will be honest with you and let you know if you have enough stuff.  Many times people are amazed how full all the sales tables actually look after we pull everything out of the cupboards and drawers! If you need an out of area sale, we have you photograph the home contents and send us photos.

How fast can you do an estate sale?

I recommend at least 3 to 4 weeks for adequate advertising and pricing time. I literally hand price every item before a sale! However, I have been known to pull a successful sale together in a few days if needed.

Do you accept credit cards at your sales?

Yes! We have found that people will spend more money at our sales because we accept credit cards.  The credit card fees we pay are part of our percentage of sale we charge.

What about the items left over after the sale?

In most cases we will sell approximately 80% of items for sale. If there is anything left over we can arrange to find a buyer for the remaining items or you can donate them to a local charity.

Do you handle hoarding situations?

Yes. I have experience in this area and will be glad to assist you. When we meet we can determine what steps to take.

Do you have experience doing business liquidations?

Yes, please contact me and we can discuss your needs.

Do you sell any items before the sale?

This is known as a pre-sale, and we never do this. We have a very large customer base, we are a preferred estate sale company to all buyers because we never pre-sale a thing! When we advertise an item, it will always be available when the doors open.
