A CLASSIC ESTATE SALE & AUCTION SERVICES 586-295-4695
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A COMPANY WITH YOUR BEST INTEREST IN MIND?
CAUTION!!!! WHOEVER YOU HIRE, MAKE SURE YOU READ THE CONTRACT!!!! SOME COMPANY'S ARE CHARGING UP TO 60% WHEN THEY TAKE ITEMS TO ANOTHER LOCATION.
SOME COMPANY'S CAN CHANGE THE PRICES TO WHATEVER THEY WANT TO WHEN THEY TAKE THE ITEMS OFF SIGHT
SOME COMPANY'S DO NOT TRY TO SELL EVERYTHING! WHY? BECAUSE THEY PRICE TO HIGH, AND THEN WILL NOT REDUCE THE PRICES SO THEY CAN TAKE THE ITEMS AT THE END OF THE SALE.
SOME COMPANY'S WILL CLEAN OUT EVERYTHING AFTER THE SALE IS OVER. IS THIS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST? I THINK SO.. ASK ME WHY! WE WORK FOR OUR CLIENTS! READ THE CONTRACT FROM FRONT TO BACK
Let our courteous staff take the worry away.

We even get referred by other Realtor's to do the Estate Sales so there is no worry for themselves, of how things are being handled.
Please don't start throwing things away such as post cards, matches, manuals, unopened food, cleaning supplies, clothing, linens etc. We can sell these items.
Please don't start donating things such as towels, clothing, sheets, glass etc. We can sell these items as well
Please consult us before you start getting rid of things..Most items that I have seen that people just had to get rid of were more valuable than the things they left.
Talk to your families. If this is an estate involving a death of a loved one, just consulting with your families before doing anything may save a lot of heart ache and ill feelings.
If there is a problem with division of personal items, let us price everything first, let the family come in before the sale to the public and have everyone buy the items that they want. The money will go back to the estate so everything can be divided equal. This usually stops problems before they occur.
#1 above all, you really don't have to do anything in the home, that is what we get paid for, setting up, sorting, going through, eliminating non sellable items, pricing, controlling customers, and selling everything in the home.
