"This is such a great service. My husband passed away suddenly and the shock was tremendous. They were so concerned about getting the right value for my items and not having just a fire sale! They were informed, organized and continued to sell my items for 3 more months! They increased my estate value dramatically overall. I never could have done it without them."

How It Works
 

We offer a full suite of sales services to get the best value for your treasures. We look over your items, either in photos or during a free on-site visit, and discuss which items would be in your best interest to sell and which items would bring the biggest return. We photograph and measure the items for sale and then implement our successful local advertising formula.  We set up attractive displays, cover the building, staff and insurance costs, meet the buyers and respond to all inquiries until the items are sold.  Then we send you a check.  Simple!

 

We market your treasures through weekly sales events at our retail store location in Meadow Vista and 24/7 advertising on appropriate online avenues. We always take our time selling the items in our care to increase your overall estate value.  This is often the most lucrative solution for our clients. 

 

The minimum value to open a consignment account with us is $250 of retail resale value.
