It is my great pleasure to recommend Carolyn and her estate sale services. My situation was a bit unusual. I live in California and am the executor/trustee for an estate in Illinois. It was my responsibility to liquidate the assets which included the entire contents of a large home and it had to be handled primarily at a distance. I contacted several estate liquidation companies in the area without success. It was my good fortune to contact Carolyn! She was willing to go the distance and has made the entire process so smooth and easy. We communicated regularly and she was always prompt and thorough with her responses and information. She inventoried, organized and staged the contents of a large home into a very successful estate sale. Because I do not live in the area, she handled all aspects of the sale, disposing of the remaining items and the cleaning of the home. She was efficient, quick and professional in her list of items sold and not sold. The percentage she received was extremely fair, especially considering the amount of time and effort she spent. She graciously arranged her schedule when I was able to travel. Carolyn has handled every aspect with prompt professionalism. She is also a complete pleasure to work with. She is calm, helpful, kind and pleasant. She helped me handle a very sad, difficult and complicated situation without any trouble and made it all a smooth and easy experience. Please be confident in hiring her as your estate liquidator, you will be pleased and satisfied with each detail of the agreement.
My Brother and I were very happy with the Services provided by Carolyn and her team. After trying to sell some things on our own and not having much luck we decided to hire a professional. We interviewed several Estate Sales professionals and were starting to get discouraged. We were very happy when we met Carolyn. She was honest, up front, and didn’t just tell us what we wanted to hear (like most people we talked to). We were able to get a reasonable estimate of what things were worth and what range items were most likely to sell in. She also placed advertisements, selected great locations for signs, and had us over prior to the estate sale to get our approval on asking prices and to get minimum acceptable amounts for specific items. In addition to all the work involved in the estate sale Carolyn did not sell items just to sell them, she turned down low offers and held on to several antiques and some rock and roll memorabilia, and took them out of town to get a higher price than our local market was going to fetch. She also negotiated a bulk purchase for everything that didn’t sell at the estate sale. Even after everything was said and done with the estate sale Carolyn e-mailed me some information regarding an item we decided to keep just so we knew the history behind the item. Initially the main reason we tried to sell things on our own was to avoid paying the fees and percentages that professionals charge, but after trying on our own and seeing all the time and work that went into the estate sale we feel that we got a real bargain for the percentage Carolyn charged. She was worth every penny and made everything easy in our time of crisis!!!
