For most families, preparing a home for sale, appraising the value of their belongings and liquidating the contents of a home can be very stressful, especially if compounded by the pain of divorce, failing health or the death of a loved one. Whether you are liquidating, moving, downsizing, merging households, relocating to assisted living or suffering from divorce or foreclosure, our professional and caring estate sale services can eliminate most of the associated stress. We determine the type of sale (partial or full), length of the sale and identify items to be sold. For fine art and high quality collectibles we have a network of auction houses and art dealers across the country that can be leveraged and potentially yield a higher sales price. Estate is always paid within a week of sale closure.
