Our Process

If you need to liquidate the majority of the items in an estate, then an in home estate tag sale is very effective way to move a lot of items and still realize maximum proceeds for your estate. It can be done and behind you very quickly.

Once you’ve decided to have a tag sale, it is better not to sell out or donate items individually. The higher the overall value of the estate, the lower our rates are and makes for a more successful sale overall.

We have experience selling complete estates and have buyers for the fine jewelry, coins, precious metals and vehicles. When you decide to have a sale, we take special care and attention to every detail to make your sale a success.

Please, Please, Please! DO NOT throw anything away. We have all heard that one mans trash, is another’s treasure and this is absolutely true.
