Settling an estate, whether it's for personal property, business or real estate, can be a challenging and overwhelming task both physically and emotionally.

As a full service company we will help you through every step of the estate settling process, managing every detail and providing individualized attention. We always represent the seller and do our best to achieve the greatest possible return for your items.

What's Involved in Settling an Estate?

Settlements of an estate often include one or more of the following steps:

  • Thorough appraisal of each item's fair market value. Our experienced appraisers provide a written or verbal appraisal as necessary.
  • Auctioning of estate items. We reach the largest audience possible using our website, in-house audiences and through live Internet bidding. Our goal is to yield the greatest possible return for you.
  • Advisement on whether an estate sale or auction is best for you. Since general household items are better sold at an estate sale we will guide and advise you on what items are best sold in which manner. We have staff dedicated to estate sales that will handle everything from the organization, pricing and advertising to security, selling and clean up.
  • Donation or consigning. For items that don’t meet the above criteria, we can help in the selection of consignment shops, or in the donation of items to non-profit organizations.
