What People Say About Golden Bear Estate Liquidation
Golden Bear Estate Liquidation was a very good experience from start to finish. As the executor for my Mom's estate, we needed to remove a lifetime of collectables. Expectations were established early on so we knew what was going to happen from intake to final sale. The process was handled with efficiency, sensitivity and attention to details. I endorse Bear as knowledgable and experienced.
E.K. Orinda
Our family was extremely pleased with the services provided by Golden Bear Estate Liquidators and highly recommend this company to anyone considering an estate sale.
Bear Sawtelle is a very knowledgeable, competent, and conscientious professional. He answered all our questions and provided much insight into the estate sale process so we could make better informed decisions. He delivered all he promised, was punctual, and gave us realistic expectations. His prep following the sale was just as thorough as his prep for the sale - removing items to be donated, and leaving the rest bagged and ready to go to the dump. No doubt his years in the business, marketing ability, his contacts, and research paid off for us. He presented our family with a check that well exceeded our expectations. We entrusted our family's home and household to him at a very difficult time for us and we have no regrets.
B.L.- San Lorenzo
Collaborating with Golden Bear Estate Liquidation could not have gone better. They went beyond their promise to prepare our home for the estate sale. Bear is knowledgeable and diligent in his willingness to do the necessary research to find the best pricing for his items. He is well organized and did an excellent job staging the home for the sale. He kept us updated on their progress and was able to bring in much more money than we ever expected. To cap things off, he did so much cleaning, the home was in way better shape than when he found it. I cannot thank him and his team enough for all their arduous work. Golden Bear Estate Liquidators has our highest recommendation.
D.S.- Washington State
Bear did great work organizing and conducting an estate sale on my uncle's house in El Cerrito. He spent about two weeks before the sale organizing the contents of the home, identifying the items mostly likely to sell and staging them in a manner that made it easy for customers to move through the home and see what was available. He worked with my schedule during the setup period, which allowed me to handle the private sale of my uncle's stamp collection. Prior to the sale, he posted photos of the available items that resulted in a great attendance at the sale. The two day sale was more lucrative than I expected, plus the home was nearly empty and very clean when the sale was completed! I received the proceeds from the sale within 3 days. Throughout the process, Bear was open to my questions, very professional, personable and always accessible. Thanks much, Bear!
A.T.- Alameda
Bear came to the rescue. We inherited an almost 3,000 square foot house packed with treasures to be sold, usable items to be donated and yes, some items for the trash. We were overwhelmed and did not know where to start. We needed someone to come in and make the unemotional decisions as to what to sell, donate and toss and Bear did just that. Bear organized everything and held a successful estate sale very quickly. We highly recommend Golden Bear Estate Liquidation!
J.S.- Hayward
Bear is great to work with! He came out to my grandmother's duplex in San Mateo to give us an estimate. My grandmother lived to be 101 and had accumulated a lot of things. Bear was very honest and straight forward. He is very efficient and did a great job at the sale -- making a lot more money than even he thought we could get at the estate sale! He left the house tidy and donated many of the items that could not sell. We really appreciated how he came across the bay from Oakland to manage the estate sale for us. I highly recommend him and his services.
C.T.- San Mateo
Fantastic estate sales! Always neatly organized, well priced, friendly and -- especially now -- respectful of keeping people at a distance (even sanitizing our hands before we could enter!) both inside and out. Looking forward to the next one. Thanks, Bear!
A.G.- Oakland
My experience using this company to do my family's estate sale was very positive. They are professional, prompt, honest (sometimes brutally), and communicate the whole way through the process. He shows up on schedule and will give an honest evaluation, and I found it to be pretty accurate. Keep in mind that nothing is going to turn out exactly perfect, but with the amount of stuff we were dealing with, it went pretty smooth. He also has a huge following and email list, so a very large number of people showed up. The only complaint (neighbor) was that the neighborhood was very busy, lots of cars, but thankfully there's pretty good parking around there. He's very professional and polite. Great job!! Thank you Golden Bear!
A.L.- El Cerrito
Holding an estate sale of my moms home of over 50 years seemed like such a daunting challenge to me. But not to Bear Sawtelle. He was very professional, organized and knowledgeable and held an amazing sale with a great turnout, and did so in a very quick timeframe. Bear has a large customer base following and I was very impressed with his work from start to finish. I feel like it would have taken me months to accomplish what Bear did in one week! Thank you Bear for making this such a stress-free experience for our family. I highly recommend Golden Bear Estate Liquidations.
J.M.- Castro Valley
I highly recommend Golden Bear Estate Liquidation. Bear Sawtelle did a terrific job for me. He organized and conducted an estate sale for an estate of which I am the court appointed Executor. The property location was in the Bay Area, however, I live in Orange County, 500 miles away, so I was not available to help or advise. Bear did everything in a timely and professional manner and the sale was a huge success.
T.H.- Huntington Beach
Bear basically performed a miracle on my moms home. In all honesty I felt that it would have taken me months to go though the house and clear out a lifetime of family memorabilia, clothes spanning 50 years, and trinkets.
Bear was professional, accurate in his assessment, and delivered on his promise. He even sold a vintage piano and refrigerator.
Awesome job.
I couldn't be more pleased.
J.M.- Berkeley
Bear effectively evaluated my relative's belongings. He quickly sorted out kitch from keep, and spotted other pieces in the estate that were worth following up on. Bear was also super helpful with a coin collection and other works of art.
For professional estate liquidation services, I recommend contacting Bear at Golden Bear Estate Liquidation.
L.H.- Oakland
My aunt needed to sell her house so that she could move to a different living situation. She was fortunate enough to contact Golden Bear Estate Liquidation.  Bear met with her and explained all of her options, and after a contract was signed, held an estate sale.  The estate sale went really well, and the house was left totally clean afterwards. All items and trash were removed and the house was left ready for sale.  My aunt was very pleased and would highly recommend them.
S.D.- Oakland
We needed to have an estate sale for an elderly relative in Oakland and we live 500 miles away.  Bear Sawtelle's Golden Bear Estate Liquidation rescued us and more than lived up to our hopes.  Bear got right down to business and pulled it all off for us one week later.  We were more than pleased all throughout the process.  He is professional, likable, humble, empathetic, responsible and reliable.  He knows his stuff.  What more can you ask for?  We highly recommend Bear and Golden Bear Estate Liquidation.
K.B.- Palm Springs
I enthusiastically recommend Golden Bear Estate Liquidation to anyone about to clear out their home. With my own downsizing, house sale, and move now accomplished, I look back at an island of relief during that stressful process--the professionalism, speed and thoroughness of Bear Sawtelle of Golden Bear Estate Liquidation.
I turned my keys over to Bear and went out of town for a few days. When I got back I found every room in my home transformed into an orderly, attractive display of the things two generations of us had brought into that house and its large basement. Bear identified what were collectibles. He advertised extensively and drew crowds every day of the estate sale. Total sales exceeded what I had hoped for. Within two days after the sale, Bear had cleaned out the house of all sale leftovers and trash.
My advice: use Bear don't try to do this yourself!
