About Expert Estate Sales by L. A. Kroese

Expert Estates has conducted over 100 sales since 2011. We have a fantastic, experienced team and a reputation for being a trusted, honest and organized estate sale company handling over 20 estates a year. Expert Estates' owner, Lisa Kroese, has over 15 years of personal property appraisal experience. She quickly determines and highlights the best objects for sale in your estate and she markets everything in your sale to her list of loyal buyers getting you the best possible result for your sale.

Lisa has auction house experience and she brokers any high-end property in an estate to make sure it has the best chance at finding the perfect buyer and the best price. Since 1995, she has sold and appraised millions of dollars worth of personal property, art and antiques.

Lisa knows the current fair market prices for your fine art, antiques, vintage furniture, and collectibles. When estates have property that fall outside of her specialties (such as jewelry or antique rugs), she works with her network of appraisers to determine the right values for everything in your estate. You can trust that everything is correctly appraised, researched and priced right when you hire Expert Estates.

We serve clients from Los Angeles to Bakersfield including Tehachapi, Lancaster, Palmdale, Hollywood Hills, Santa Clarita and other areas. Expert Estates has helped the widow of Jack Palance and former NFL Defensive Tackle, Sedrick Ellis liquidate their assets. We will travel to other parts of Southern California and Florida for consultations, appraisals and estate sales. We have an office in South Beach headed up by Maria Sanchez, Lisa's sister.

The circumstances leading to every estate liquidation are unique, during your free consultation we will go over your exact needs. If you are downsizing, moving, handling an estate or need liquidation for any reason, call Lisa Kroese directly at 661-474-7201 to schedule your free consultation.

During your consult, we will work with you to customize the best solution for your estate. Whatever you need, we are your premier service estate liquidation and appraisal company. We will come up with a plan designed to bring you the best possible outcome.

We offer a complete array of estate options including:

-full estate sales - on site or off site,
-online and retail consignment,
-regional and national auction consignments,
-estate buy outs,
-estate and moving sale consultations,
-home cleaning and donation of left overs
-and full house clean outs.

Expert Estates is one of the few companies qualified to provide written estate and donation appraisal reports. Our appraisals are prepared by owner, Lisa Kroese, a CAGA Certified Appraiser.

When you work with Expert Estates, your family can rest assured that you are in good hands. Special items of value will be disclosed to you, everything for sale will be properly researched and marketed so you can focus on other things that need your attention. We will keep you informed and updated on developments as your sale progresses.

We are bonded and insured, and are members of both the BBB and American Society of Estate Liquidators (ASEL). Choosing an ASEL member helps ensure that you are working with a professional that follows a Code of Ethics when handling your estate.

Expert Estates is owned by a trained CAGA Certified Appraiser.

We know or will find the best venue for selling unique and high end property. Lisa sells property at regional and national auction houses, on Etsy, eBay, and in auction venues. Expert Estates also has an antique and consignment store which allows us to maximize proceeds from your sale.

We will heavily market your inventory in print and online. With over 3,500 connections and subscribers, we have one of the largest social network and mailing lists. Find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn.

We hold sales for as many or as few days (or weekends) as needed based on the amount of inventory you have.

We accept credit cards and collect sales tax from the buyer and process sales tax. We absorb all of the advertising and credit card processing fees for your sale. And we collect sales tax from the buyer, it is the law. Hiring a company that doesn't collect tax is risky since they could go out of business at any moment, and hiring one that pays sales tax from the overall sale tally is costing you an extra 7.5-9% depending on your location!

If your estate includes special items that might not be right for an estate sale or that might not have sold over the course of your sale, we consign them and sell them in the right venue.

Lisa's past California estate liquidation clients include the Estate of Dr. Birds, the estate of Elaine and Jack Palance, Former NFL defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis, and the owner of Denny Refrigeration Company. Her appraisal clients include art collectors on ArtNews’ list of Top 200 Collectors, the Estate of Gianni Versace, and the Lowe Art Museum.

Early in her career, Lisa worked for one of the country's oldest auction houses. Her fine art services firm in South Florida was a Sothebys.com authorized seller. She has a degree in fine art from The Maryland Institute, College of Art.

Lisa is a seasoned event organizer. She handles crowds and unexpected emergencies quickly and gracefully. Call Lisa to schedule your free consultation to come up with the perfect solution for your liquidation or appraisal: 661-474-7201.

What People Say About Expert Estate Sales by L. A. Kroese
Wow, Lisa, your team was amazing and you really know your stuff. I wish we had called you sooner! Thank you for handling our estate and getting so much work done, so quickly and efficiently. We can't believe the results you got for us.
Trustee, John M.
This is by far my favorite estate sales group. I always look forward to Lisa's sales and would travel almost anywhere to attend them. A great courteous and professional team and reasonable pricing.
Kent
Again, huge praise to you and your assistants for such an awesome job organizing the estate sale @ our Mom and Dad's house. We were 'ooing' and 'awing' and we already know all the stuff, so I know you've done everything right to optimize a successful estate sale.
Client, Wendy O.
Take care and thanks for doing my estate sale for me. I appreciate everything you did, you and your crew did an outstanding job. Needless to say, I will be highly recommending you.
