So, how does this work?

When you have a good idea of what you want to keep, Carole will meet with you in your home to determine if a sale is appropriate. If it is, we will discuss contract terms. If not, she will advise how best to dispose of your surplus. Every sale I do is customized to meet the client’s need.

Most frequently we sell your unneeded items right from your home, after you have moved out. You need to do nothing about the things left behind, or worry about cleaning your home. We can do that, too. Basically, we handle everything because it can be an emotional journey and prevents you from having to sort and separate items from lost loved ones. Carole doesn't just sell you stuff, she listens too.

 

Time Frame

Usually, over a period of two or three weeks, we sort through to make sure items of value are discovered and priced appropriately. My sales are attracting repeat buyers because we make sure that all merchandise is clean, attractively displayed and in working order whenever possible.

 

Sales

Sales are usually held for two or three days, with prices reduced as the sale progresses. To help ensure the best prices for clients and customers, bid sheets are used on some higher-priced merchandise. Items remaining at the end of the sale are donated to a charitable organization.

 

Protection

During the sale every effort is made to protect the property, and at the end of the sale the property is left neat and clean for the next occupant.

 

Payment

As soon as possible after the close of the sale you will receive a check for the proceeds. Normally this is the amount taken in from sales less expenses like, advertising the sale, trash removal, etc.

 

Who would be working in my home?

Carole, personally, meets with potential clients to go over all details, and understands their wishes, before a contract is signed. "I am on the scene when we are preparing for the sale and doing the sale itself with carefully selected, responsible workers assisting." ~Carole

There’s all that stuff in the attic, and basement AND out in the shed! We’ve been collecting for decades... what do we do with it? 


Why not just place a “for sale” ad in the newspaper?

No guarantee that things will sell in your time frame. Not easy to sell small items this way, or know the best price to expect. You will need to be available to take phone calls and show merchandise.


Why not send items to a reputable auction house?

Few auction houses will take everything you want to get rid of. Items may be sold in lots, not getting the best price. Our sales are conducted over two to three days. Most auctions are simply a few hours.


Why not sell everything to a dealer for one, lump sum?

Small valuables are often overlooked. Dealers offer very, low prices and may leave behind items they cannot sell, leaving them for you to dispose of.

Now you’re wondering...

Is that old army uniform worth saving?

How about the antique clock that doesn’t run?

My mother’s wedding veil?

The answer to these questions are up to you. However, we are here to help! Carole and her network of experts can advise you on how to get the most satisfaction from your unneeded possessions, whether by selling them, offering them to a museum or donating them to charity.

Have a question?

testimonial letters and cardsWhen asked to put this site together for Carole. One of the first questions was,” Do you have any testimonials?”. “Oh yeah, I have some.” Carole said. The next day she dropped off a folder stuffed full. (I thought it was filled with other miscellaneous papers etc.) WRONG, It was completely filled with happy customer testimonials!!! One after another! Here is just a sample of the happy customers…

*The names were left out to protect their privacy. Oh!… and most of these are hand written on various “Thank You” cards.


Carole + Steve + Jim:

What a pleasure it was to get to know such interesting and energetic people! It’s actually quite sad to see this come to an end. Owen and I would love to join your team, but, also we must stay on course with our plans. We feel very blessed to have spent this time with you. God’s light shines through you and that’s what life is all about.

Love…


Hi Carole,

Just wanted to thank you and your team for a super job well done, with my parents moving sale. It made it much easier for Morgan and I. We appreciate your fast response with the sale. We could not have done it without you, plus your team. We are both blessed for meeting you and believe with all our hearts, that God was the center of all this. He sent us a beautiful angel here on earth and her name is “Carole”.

God bless all of you, Love…


Dear Carole!

Thanks for all your hard work with our sale. All seven of us had a wonderful vacation to the Bahamas for our 20th anniversary. Thank you so much, we would have never been able to do this without you!!

Love…


Carole,

Thank you for everything you’ve done to make this whole process so much easier and less stressful on all of us. I am so happy I found you and would be happy to give you an outstanding reference to anyone!

Love…


Carole,

The $5100 amount blew us away. We did not see that much because there were no appliances, or large ticket items to sell. We are truly happy with the end result and it exceeds our hopes because we could have never come up with over five thousand dollars worth of stuff. Very good report.

 

Many more are available!
