What People Say About Retro Etcetera Estate Sales
As someone who has had the pleasure of Eric and Ted running my estate sale and also as a consumer, going to many of their estate sales, I have had nothing but great experiences with the boys! The research, the staging, and the time they put into every sale is unreal! When they take on a sale, they are working for the benefit of their client, without ever overcharging the estate sale attendees. They walk a high tightrope yet all parties are pleased with their professionalism. When you go home with a bargain, you can rest assured that Eric and Ted know what their inventory is and still want their attendees to find that hidden gem that keeps them coming back for more. I can't speak for anyone else, (except for my 5 girlfriends that now start calling and texting me before 7:00AM on a Saturday!) but I can't wait for the weekend to see what treasures I'm going to be taking home next weekend!

Do yourself a favor and select Erik & Ted for your estate sale! We found them after interviewing 2 other estate sale companies (one of whom tried to rip-off my 87 yr old mom - offering her $100 on the spot for what he said was "silver-plated" items which were sold for $1700 to a silver-buyer.

Erik and Ted were professional from the 1st moment and did an awesome job for my mom - and put me at ease knowing she was not being taken advantage of.

Erik and Ted's reporting about items sold with the sale price, as well as what was not sold but donated and that value, was great. Even living out of town Mom received her check within 7 days of the final reporting, which we received 1-2 days after the sale.

The house was left empty and clean and we were able to turn it over to the realtor without having to make the long trip back to Palm Desert ourselves.

If we ever needed an estate sale company again we would hands-down go straight to Erik & Ted.

Thanks guys - you're the best!

Thank you to Ted and Eric of Retro Etcetera on the successful Estate Sale of our Palm Desert vacation home. After meeting Ted & Eric we instantly felt comfortable with them and they worked in a very tight timeframe to hold an estate sale immediately after the house closed escrow in early October! We found them trustworthy, honest and diligent and they worked hard pricing all the items and holding a successful weekend estate sale. Our highest recommendation for them both as businessmen and people.

I wish I could give these guys a 10 + stars. Unbelievable. My cousin hired them when she moved out of state and I was impressed. Then a year later I decided to move but I could not remember who my cousin used so I called and got a few qutes. Not only were they ridiculously high I never had a good gut feeling about anyone who I spoke to. Then my cousin found Eric's number and the world was right again. . Let me tell you Ted know his stuff. He can set things up to look good. He is a great designer. These guys never waste a minute. They are hard workers and they will get the job done. When it was all over I was shocked at my check. They did an outstanding job. I highly recommend this company for your estate sale. And most important to me I felt they were very very trustworthy. Everything they said they would do, they did it.... Thank you, Eric and Ted.

This guys are terrific!! I hired them to take care of the estate sale for my mother's house. They did an amazing job staging the entire house- making it look better than it ever did! Ted and Eric and their staff worked so hard getting everything ready for the sale; including getting old lawn equipment running again! Thanks to their know-how, they even sold stuff I never would have thought about. I completely trusted them to handle all the details, and they did a great job. And I got a check from them 3 days after the sale....and I never had to lift a finger! I can't say enough good things about these two. Thank you for making my life so much easier!

Retro Etcetera have amazing staff members. They are all kind, sweet and helpful.
They have held a successful estate sales in my house. Ted and Eric are such easy going person, but also professional.
This team have spent a week to create a theme for the sale, set up the house in a neat style. Super efficiency and very considering for the house owner.
They are a 5 start estate sale company. Super friendly and hard working people. If you have any question about their service, just give them a call. Ted is an amazing guy you will ever want to meet to discuss Estate sale.

These guys saved the day! Our family had to liquidate our parent's home for a quick close and they stepped up and got EVERYTHING done with a day to spare, which was no easy feat. They had lived in the house for almost 40 years so there was a great deal to manage. I cannot say enough about how easy Eric & Ted have been to work with; thorough and professional! I would recommend them in a heartbeat!
Tina M.
Retro Etcetera was amazing!!! Not sure what we would have done without them! Eric and Ted are professionals in their field, trustworthy, and went far above and beyond to make this sale go smoothly. We live out of town, were the survivor trustees and needed help. This incredible team stepped up to get the home ready for the sale, completed the sale as promised, and finished by having the home cleaned and sparkling to be put on the market (and that was no easy feat) In additional, our $$$ exceeded expectations. From our first interaction, they were positive, encouraging and held our hand as they guided us through the process. They were sympathetic to the grief process, and flexible as our dates kept changing. Can't give them enough praise. We love this team...our new family. On a scale of 1-10, they are a 10+, and we highly recommend Retro Etcetera, Eric and Ted and their team.

Wow, Eric and Ted are miracle workers. I recently sold an investment home in Palm Springs. Living in Los Angeles, I had no time to get to the property and sell the furniture. Eric is part salesman, part ringleader, part air traffic controller, part therapist. I never would have gotten this done without both of these guys. Eric not only sold the furniture, he helped with items like bringing the cablebox and router to Spectrum, dealt with a very restrictive HOA, and left the house 'ready to close (escrow)'. I can't emphasize enough how much of an asset these guys were...they simply get things done. They make executive decisions when/if necessary, but were sure to check with me on items of high importance. They even felt I was getting 'low balled' on too many items, and those items they refused to sell at the 'moving sale', and have moved them to their shop on consignment. I'm the #1 producing real estate agent in Downtown Los Angeles...and, if Eric and Ted were in my market, I'd happily and confidently refer them to every one of my clients, even the high-maintenance/impossible to please clients...because I know these guys would not only be able to appease such clients, but I suspect they'd be able to calm them down too!

Eric & team are the embodiment of above and beyond. My house sale process has been very complicated, to say the least, particularly with the added stress of not living in Palm Springs. From the first interaction on the phone with Eric, to meeting him in person as we started planning the furniture sale, to the continued updates afterward, I very quickly felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Not only did they put together the sale in a very short amount of time, they also went many extra miles making sure I didn't have to worry about a lot of things that I would have otherwise needed to take care of. A business relationship driven by empathy and trust, how often do you see that these days? They even took on helping me with the remaining items that didn't sell on the spot, once again shaving off additional worries that would have otherwise popped up. And on top of all that, they took care of cleaning & polishing up the house afterward so it would be spotless for the new buyers. Pretty proud to say that I've made a friend in Eric throughout this whole process, and I cannot be more grateful for all the peace of mind (and laughs!) I got to experience thanks to the team's work

I have just returned from Palm Springs and settling my mom's estate sale with the Retro Etcetera Estate Sales super team of Eric and Ted Zepeda. I am happy to say that there were no surprises! No hidden charges! No surprise fees! This team did exactly what they said they would do.
However, their contract did not include this.... that they would treat my mom's things with such care, leave her home spotless, and that they would become lifelong friends! I feel so fortunate to have found them.
They truly made a difficult situation not only hugely successful, but easy and painless. I cannot say enough how much I appreciate their hard work and dedication. Thank you Eric and Ted!
