do we DO with all of this?” It’s a question we help answer
all the time! Whether you are settling an estate, moving into a smaller
home, or just wanting to simplify your lifestyle, the liquidation of
household items can be both frustrating and time-consuming.
We regularly conduct estate sales within the Chicagoland area, and in fact we recommend this option highly if the volume and value of the contents are great enough to warrant one.
We take care of all aspects of an estate sale, including the merchandising, pricing, and advertising. (See our FAQ page for specific details):
We will do an estate content analysis for you at no charge. Contact us for further information.
PLEASE NOTE: Is there a pair of sneakers in the closet worth $1000? One of our clients didn't think so either, but we knew what we were looking at! Had we visited the estate ONE DAY LATER, they would have gone to Goodwill. Is that old pair of sunglasses worth nearly $200? Not before we plucked them out of the trash bag that the family had already been filling!
You could be throwing away or donating hundreds if not thousands of dollars worth of collectibles. "Junk drawers" and old boxes of papers often hold very valuable items! We know what they are and how to price them to maximize your sale potential.
The success of an estate sale depends on a large variety of contents. If you toss out or donate items BEFORE you call us, you may eliminate our ability to conduct a sale. IF IT NEEDS TO BE TOSSED, we'll toss it!
The Cardinal Rule: never throw it out until you've called us! You might be surprised at what really IS collectible these days!
Not enough for an estate sale? We may have other options to suggest, including arranging for pieces of value to be placed into auction, selling appropriate items via on-line auction, or assisting you with arranging and pricing a small sale you can run on your own. Let's take a look, and let's talk!
