Step 1

The Consultation

The free consultation consists of a detailed tour of the home in which the items deemed for sale should be easily identifiable. We will discuss your unique needs, guide you through the next steps of the process, propose a commission (or cost) for our services, and answer any questions you have. The goal here is to set you up for success and provide you with expert material and advice exclusive to our process.

Step 2

Staging, Organizing, & Advertising

This step is essential for aesthetic, customer appeal, and advertising of your estate sale. Our expert team of stagers utilize interior design techniques to merchandise your home and create the ultimate shopping experience. Pairing that with professional photography and a tailored advertising strategy ensures your items will be irresistible and seen by many. Our skilled team ensures special advertisement and appraisal needs are paid to rare antiques, designer merchandise, luxury brands, and other items of high value.
