The Big Day Has Arrived

This is where all of the planning and effort pays off.  Everything has been advertised, organized, clearly priced and our team is ready to make sure the sale goes smoothly.

What Happens to Remaining Items

After the sale, it is time to decide what to do if there are items which do not find a new home.  We work with you to determine what you would like to keep and what you would like to donate.  We will coordinate with a local charity and arrange for them to pick everything up.  For an additional fee, we will box and bag the items so you don't have to worry about anything.

Icing on the Cake

Often, an estate sale coincides with the sale of a home.  We are proud to partner with an excellent real estate team, Collins Group, who can sell your home and help you find a new one.  They even have short term rental homes available if you need it between moves.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I would like to share my experience that I had with Estate Sales by Michele. I lost my mom from Covid back in August of this year. I was completely lost and overwhelmed. My mom had collected a lot of very unique items throughout her life. Some valuable, some sentimental and I wanted to make sure I found a company that handled her things with the upmost care and class. That’s exactly what I found with Estate Sales by Michele. Michele and her team spent countless hours photographing, cataloging, and researching all of my mom’s treasures. There were numerous occasions where I would apologize that I couldn’t be any more assistance. At the time I couldn’t emotionally sort through the personal items that my mom had kept from over the years that meant so much to her. Every time Michele assured me it was not a issue and kept proceeding with the planning and organizing of the with sale. She constantly added items to her website as well as other websites to find the right type of people who would appreciate my moms belongings just as much as she did. The weekend of the sale was completely turn key. Michele and her team arrived, set up and displayed my moms things with prestige and professionalism that I know no other company could match. The sale was very successful and very easy on me. I was 100% satisfied and it was not only my pleasure doing business with her but also I felt like I made a friend along the way!
