About Brevard Appraisal & Estate Services

BREVARD APPRAISAL & ESTATE SERVICES

Estate Sales Managed // Certified Personal Property Appraisals


We Manage the Sale of the Contents of Your Home with the
Utmost Care and Consideration.

What is an Estate Sale?
An Estate Sale is an “on premises” sale that is used to sell all or part of the contents of any size home. This can be due to down-sizing, moving or a true estate and does not require the contents to be antiques. Any and all items can be sold from Fine Furnishings and Art to Clothing and Ephemera (collectible paper), so Don’t Throw Anything Away until you Talk to Us First!

How Does It Work?
First we meet to discuss your needs and any considerations you may have. We then do a general appraisal of the contents to be sold. From this appraisal we estimate the total that you can expect from the sale; or if a sale is viable. There is No Cost or Obligation for this Consultation, unless you require other services.
When you decide to use Brevard Estates, contracts are signed and we get to work. We clean, sort, research and price every item. We bring in display cases, tables & necessary props and stage your home to showcase your contents securely and to their best advantage. We handle all advertising and staffing, manage the sale, and if you wish, leave the house “broom clean” and ready for closing. After the sale, you receive a detailed accounting of all items sold along with your proceeds.

What Do We Charge?
We work on a commission basis. The commission is based on the estimated gross of the sale, time is needed to prepare the sale, necessary staffing and any other anticipated costs. The commission rate is established before the contract is signed, and will only change if you change items to be sold. The commission is paid from the proceeds of the sale and in most cases; no fees are required before that time.

Who Are We?
We have over 50 years of combined experience Buying, Selling and Appraising Antiques, Art and Household Contents. We understand today’s changing marketplace and we work diligently to research your contents to get the best possible return for you. We also understand that settling an estate or just moving can be an emotionally and physically draining experience. While getting the optimum return for your contents is our primary objective, your comfort with the entire process will always remain one of our most important concerns.

Thank you for considering our services.

What People Say About Brevard Appraisal & Estate Services
Gregory F. Ward
48B East Kings Highway
Chester, CT 06412

To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter of recommendation for Carol Brevard and Keith Redman.
I was in trouble. I had sold my parents four bedroom home on the beach in Westbrook in 2008 but had no time to dispose of anything before the closing. So I moved everything to my two bedroom home in Chester.

Now with a plan to move to Atlanta I had to dispose of three generations of antique furniture, antique oriental Persian rugs, silverware, glassware, art and household goods as the cost of moving everything to Atlanta would have been prohibitive. I spent months looking for someone with no one willing to tackle the job until I found Carol Brevard and Keith Redman. Understand that all of the smalls were still packed in boxes stacked to the ceiling in the basement and garage – it was impossible for them to know what value these boxes represented (I didn’t even remember what was there). Add to this the fact that neither they nor I knew exactly what I would keep versus place in the sale from the unpacked boxes until they were unpacked and you can understand their dilemma.
Finally, the earliest we could hold a sale was the weekend before Christmas and I had to be out of my house in Chester by January 1, and you can image the state I was in. Carol and Keith agreed to tackle the job. Keith brought in a crew and between them they unpacked everything, re-arranged the basement and garage laying everything out on tables for display. It all took an entire week. Then Keith and Carol labeled and priced everything, researching every item of significant value to make sure I got top price. I must admit I was skeptical of some of the high prices they put on some of the furniture. Part of my research had been to attend a number of antique auctions and I had seen some of the horribly low prices antique furniture is commanding at auction in these times. But for the most part, they achieved these prices.

It turned-out that the trepidations of a sale the week before Christmas were unwarranted. The turn-out on the first two days was tremendous. Since I had so much, we had scheduled a three day sale. The third day, although not as good as the first two days, still drew a significant crowd and we sold quite a bit.

I cannot sing the praises of Carol Brevard and Keith Redman enough. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking to dispose of their loved-ones estate. They work extremely hard and are sensitive to the emotions involved in disposing of your loved-ones possessions. They are true professionals.

Sincerely yours,
Gregory Ward

Carol, thanks you certainly live up to the statement on your business card
"Estate & Moving Sales Managed With the Utmost Care & Consideration"
In my experience most unusual. Great job, add my name to your long
list of references. Thanks again, all the best Garrard Holt, Essex/Centerbrook

When we sold our house, it was our good luck to find Carol Brevard to handle our estate sale. We were on a a very tight schedule--due to close in a month--and were seriously downsizing, so everything had to go. Carol came over quickly, and went through everything with us, taking the time to separate out those items that might get greater return as consignment pieces. Case in point, was a large oil painting that Carol quickly spotted. Carol knows art, and she just had a feeling that it was of substantial value, and insisted that we put that up for auction a few months later. She handled all of the details and in the end the painting sold for $18,000! The estate sale itself was also a great success, and as promised, Carol left our house broom clean and ready for final inspection before the closing. She is professional, expert and honest, and we can highly recommend her.
