Estate Sales

Estate (Tag) Sales and Estate Auctions

How we help you with your Estate Sale. 

ewerThe decision to sell or downsize one’s personal property may be necessitated by retirement, relocation, divorce, or the combining of two households.  If you are the executor of an estate, you may be responsible for disposal of the contents of a relative’s home.  Whatever the situation, you may be overwhelmed by the decisions you face.

We offer counsel in making the difficult choices of estate disposal while completing the sale in a timely and dignified manner.

Our clients find that we can increase sale proceeds, relieve them of the inconveniences of detailed planning, and follow through with the implementation of the sale.

We have a reputation for honesty and integrity and adhere to the Code of Ethics of the International Society of Appraisers, the Appraisers Association of America, and the National Auctioneers Association
