What to Expect from Class Act Estate Sales & Auction Services
An estate sale’s main objective is the orderly liquidation of personal property in a relatively short period of time for the highest proceeds possible. The concept is pretty straightforward, yet without one of our professional estate appraisers on site, the process can be laden with significant emotional trauma, difficult logistical challenges and crucial deadlines.
Closing a home or business can be exhausting and even traumatic. We strive to minimize our clients’ stress throughout the entire process. We’re experts in managing estate liquidations, and offer efficient, professional services without forgetting the needs of our clients.
Your home need not be filled with antiques, artwork, vintage automobiles, rare firearms, fine jewelry and other expensive assets in order for a sale to be successful. We routinely liquidate estates of all types and sizes. No death need have occurred, either. We often work for those who just wish to downsize. We also work for those who are moving, couples who are divorcing, businesses that are liquidating, etc.
The process begins with a complimentary consultation in which we come and view the property in question. At this time, we also discuss any special needs you may have. (We recognize that each situation is unique.)
Our commission, something usually set in the initial consultation, is based upon what we estimate the gross sales will be and how much work must be done in order for your sale to be successful. (N.b.: We may quote lower commissions on particular items – e.g., motorcycles, higher end automobiles, recreational vehicles, boats, farm implements, and other exceptionally high ticket items.)
WHAT WE DO:
Once we sign a contract that outlines our basic duties and expectations, we work patiently and efficiently. We clean, organize and display all items in the home.
We separate household trash from merchandise to be sold. (There’s no need for you to do this beforehand. We do the work for you! In fact, we even go so far as to ask that you throw absolutely nothing away until we’ve had a chance to see the estate in its entirety. You’d be amazed to see what some folks put into the garbage can!)
We price all items to be sold based upon our many years of experience as professional estate appraisers and liquidators, as well as our knowledge of current market comparables.
Should an outside expert be needed for consultation during the research/pricing process (e.g., with large gems, certain firearms, coins and stamps etc.), we take care of matters quickly and discreetly.
We provide and set up shelving, lighting, mirrors, drapes, tables, locked and lighted showcases, risers, clothing racks, jewelry trays, cash registers and all other necessary equipment.
We obtain any and all necessary municipal and/or HOA permit(s) for your sale.
We send out e-mail notifications about the upcoming sale to the many, many thousands of customers already in our database.
(We even use a professional e-mail delivery service that guarantees a 96% deliverability rate!)
We create, place and pay for advertising in the most appropriate local newspaper(s). We advertise on both EstateSales.org and EstateSales.net to notify customers who aren’t already on our regular e-mail list,
We mark steps and other potential hazards, and cordon off any dangerous areas of the property used. We also place professionally made “no entry” signs that are worded in English in all areas that won’t be open to the public.
Our friendly and reliable staff waits on each and every customer on sale day(s). We provide boxes, bags and wrapping materials for customers on sale day(s). We can arrange for charity pick-ups and/or buy-out brokers after your sale, else you can choose to keep everything.
If there (and this is rare) are very high-end items left over, we place them in our online auctions.
We’ll work with your realtor to expedite the sale of your home.
(Why pass up free marketing for your largest asset?)
We’re happy to provide you with top rate professional referrals for everything from realty to mortgage services to plumbing.
It all boils down to this: we work for YOU, the client, and strive to make you as much money as possible in as short a time as possible.
Our commissions are competitive; our service is comprehensive.
WHAT WE DON’T DO:
We do not sell, rent or divulge our mailing list.
We don’t conduct dealer previews before our sales.
In short, we don’t do business in such a way that ever competes against our clients’ best interests.
Your trust, privacy and peace of mind are of paramount importance to us.

Ron was great at helping us out. This has been a difficult time for us. Losing a parent is not easy. Ron came over and helped us plan the estate liquidation of my parents home. Everything he said he would do, He did! His staff of 6 came a week before the sale and organized and priced the entire home. Liz was his head cashier who was in charge of the register. I was present for the sale and the customers just loved her. The people that were in line the first day of the sale was over 100+. I never expected to see so many people for an estate sale. Ron's advertising worked just like he said. I would recommend Class Act Estate Sales.Charlie Parker - Jan 2014
What a great company. I was so impressed that they had everything organized and priced in such a short period. They had a really nice appraiser that was excellent and getting information on items that I thought were worth nothing and they sold for far more than I expected. Very friendly staff. They kept me informed thru out the whole process. They gave me piece of mind. My dads death was enough to deal with and was hard for me, they gave me the time to get his estate in order and to grieve without the stress of "What am I going to do with everything". The truly are a Class Act and I am so glad I hired them.Shirley Duncan - Dec 2013
