As an expert on current the market for fine art, antiques, vintage furniture, and collectibles, Lisa Kroese knows the right venue for your property. She also works with her network of appraisers for property that falls outside of her specialties (such as jewelry or antique rugs) to determine the right value for your estate. Whether at an estate sale, a regional or national auction houses, or online channels like iGavel, Etsy or eBay, or in antique malls, she finds the best venue for selling everything, especially unique and high end property that can get overlooked by others.
We find a new home for everything you don't want or need to keep.
Hiring Expert Estates comes with a hard-working, careful and trustworthy team who will clean, sort, stage, appraise, price, market and sell your home's entire contents. We can empty the entire estate: house, garage, yard and leave your real estate clean and ready for marketing, rental or residence. Our workers are all w2 (or 1099 if appropriate) and are covered by worker's comp insurance. We never allow under the table pay or compensate workers with your inventory.
Our goal is to eliminate your burden. We do as much or as little as you need.
In addition to our growing network of over 2,500 social connections and 1,100 loyal email subscribers, we will heavily market your inventory in print and online and will hold sales for as many or as few days and weekends as needed based on your inventory. Our sales run from 2 to 8 days depending on the size of your estate. Estates with special items that might not be right for an estate sale can be consigned and sold in a variety of channels we manage which is the key for selling residential contents what we sell for each estate liquidation client. To secure higher purchase prices than other companies, we accept all major accept credit cards and never charge a buyer’s premiums for credit card payments.
We are licensed, bonded and insured. We also collect sales tax as required by law. We collect tax on top of our selling price from the buyer and pay that to the state. Sales tax is never taken from your sale proceeds as some liquidation companies will do, this costs you an extra 7.5-9% as the seller and there is simply no reason for that.
Our estate sale strategies are focused on generating the best results possible for you.
