What People Say About Antique Advocate Estate Sales and Services Inc.
Jun 17, 2014
Laura did a recent sale for me in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca. She was terrific in setting up, researching items, posting pictures and being organized. Her cashier amazed me. The final report listed an itemized inventory of sales prices which exceeded my expectations. My payment was mailed out the first working day following the sale completion. There are fly by night companies in every trade and then there are TOP TEN companies like Antique Advocate Estate Sales & Services. Thanks You for the job well done

Just completed a very profitable and successful sale using Antique Advocates. I highly recommend this company! Laura, Audrey and the entire crew were just great to work with. Laura impressed me during our interview with her portfolio, her professionalism, and her marketing strategy. I appreciated her personal touch in how she approached my mother's estate belongings. I already have recommended Laura and her company to other friends of mine!

Antique Advocate Estate Sales


There's no doubt that having Laura Montierth do an estate sale for us was an excellent decision. Her team exceeded our expectations in every way.

After deciding to sale a family home built over seventy-five years ago, we asked real estate "experts" about having an estate sale. The "experts" discouraged us by saying that we would have disappointing results. And then we met Laura Montierth, the owner of Antique Advocate Estate Sales. After a comprehensive, candid presentation by Laura, we had a very clear understanding of the pros and cons of an estate sale, and felt comfortable signing a contract with her. And in retrospect, that clearly was the best thing we could have done.

With exceptional knowledge of which items would sale, and the amount people would pay for them, her team cleaned, arranged and priced items for maximum appeal. Then they created excellent images of the items and posted them on the internet.

We could not believe the number of people that appeared the first morning of the sale. There was no doubt, Laura knew her market. Unfortunately, we had discarded some items before we talked with Laura. That was a costly mistake.

After the successful estate sale and cleanup, our house was ready for our real estate agents to prepare the property to introduce to the market. Laura exceeded our expectations in every phase of the process.

Yes. You can count on Laura and the Antique Advocate Estate Sales
Team!

Several weeks ago my family and I found Antique Advocates on the Internet. We were looking for someone who could sell off the remains of our mother's massive hoard of stuff that was 50 years in the making. None of us had any idea about the world of estate agents or estate sales. Antique Advocates seemed to fit what we were looking for and there was really nothing to lose.

This morning we just finished up business after a 3-day estate sale, and I have to say: Laura (the owner) and her crew were absolutely phenomenal. It takes a certain amount of mutual trust to see the process through, and at no time did I feel anything was not transparent. Everything she laid out in our initial consultation was completely accurate. She's been doing this for nearly 20 years, so she knows. She said to expect breakage, people trying to exchange price tags, the unscrupulous, the manipulative, and the weird. Real estate agents will come sniffing around; neighbors will get worked up over traffic. And she was exactly right on all of the above. The best part is that she is very proactive in dealing with all these types of situations. She held the sale on days during hours that would not impact the neighborhood; she made sure that we (the family) were not bothered by anyone. After the last day, she and the crew left everything spotless.

Before our sale, Laura and her crew spent days sorting and arranging literally thousands of items to make the best presentation. Nothing was left in heaps or piles. As for the pricing, her experience determined what would sell and at what price, and if she wasn't sure, she looked it up or asked an expert for advice. Frankly, my jaw dropped at the amount of money people are willing to pay for "stuff." Since every town has its own unique estate sale shopper demographic, you just don't know what people are going to buy. In our case, we took in three times the amount of money we thought we would. The final accounting today was accurate to the penny.

No way in a million years could we have done this on our own. I'm ecstatically happy on how everything turned out. What could have been a stressful experience became something fun and upbeat.

Take Antique Advocate's advice and "don't throw anything away!"
