Very Thankful and Delighted with Dan’s coordination, assistance & sound advice resulting in a successful estate sale that exceeded my greatest expectations. Dan’s estate service was more flexible with contractual terms to allow special handling of sensitive assets when compared to other estate sales companies. Early promotion with online presence and professional photos of featured items resulted in a good crowd of interested buyers. Very impressed with promotion and sales of specialty items including cruiser fishing boat, high-end massage chair and woodworking floor standing and hand tool collection. Trusted and ethical approach, sensitive to needs of the seller and would greatly recommend to others.

Dan and his staff have been very efficient in organizing our private residence estate sale. I recommend having them appraise your treasures and appreciated their professional and successful marketing and pricing strategies.

I am very grateful to Dan and his team for their expertise and rapid response to my situation. My house sold very quickly and the buyers wanted to move in as quickly as possible. I had just under 3 weeks and I needed an estate sale for the entire contents. Everyone I had contacted wanted 4 weeks advance notice. When I found Dan’s service, I was down to 10 days before closing. Their knowledge, ingenuity and resourcefulness made this happen. I highly recommend them regardless of how much lead time there is.
