What People Say About Hughes Estate Auctions & Earlybird Estate Liquidation
This is my favorite place to shop Estate Sales, it’s indoors, cool and the selection is fabulous, you never know what treasures will be there, serious art or Sunday bargains the last day of sales, so fun!!
Florence-Isabelle Megginson
Dissolving my parents’ estate and closing up the Pasadena house they had lived in for over 50 years seemed a daunting task, but the good folks at Hughes really took the load off my back. Their capable staff organized and conducted a public estate sale for us that was quite successful yet also extremely sensitive to members of our extended family. We didn’t have to lift a finger or a dustpan. They swept the house and yard clean before they were done, and all that was left for us to do was lock the door and turn off the lights.
Ted Rhodes, Santa Barbara, CA
I have used Hughes Estate Sales for two very different jobs — one small and one huge. The first was to sell a few dozen furniture items from a family estate, which they did courteously and quickly. The second involved completely packing up and clearing out forty years’ worth of possessions from a family home. In both cases, Todd and his crews were professional, efficient, and great to work with… Hughes communicated with us each step of the way, settled up promptly, and gave us an itemized list of sales results. We were completely delighted with their helpfulness and with the results.
Julia Hastings, La Cañada, CA
Hughes is responsible, responsive and pleasant to deal with. They kept meticulous track of all financial and other details. They were resourceful in identifying our more valuable items and finding the best way of disposing of them. They achieved excellent results for us and were most helpful when we moved out of a big house we’d lived in for a long time. We recommend Hughes Estate Sales highly and with enthusiasm.
