To provide clients with accurate, honest service in the field of appraising and estate liquidation; in a confidential and compassionate manner.
Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. We have found that "tag sales" are the easiest, fastest, and most efficient way to sell estate items or personal property. In almost all cases the sale is held indoors at the house that contains the items to be sold and on the day of the sale we ensure that there is only one way in and out for security purposes. Depending on the time frame and amount of items, we typically spend five to ten days before the sale date sorting, grouping and pricing, and one to three days of the actual sale.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. There is no upfront fee for our initial consultation where we can meet face to face and review the format of our sale arrangements; you can also ask any questions you may have. Our fee is based on an agreed upon percentage of sales; the only additional charge would be an after sale box and clutter removal fee if you opted for this service. We are certified in estate liquidation as well as antique and residential contents appraisals ensuring you the highest profit margin! Additionally, we have the resources to maximize your results by researching your high-end items and offer them to private collectors.
Q. If you were a customer, how would you describe the "nuts & bolts" of your trade?
A. Another Memory provide services that handle all aspects of estate liquidation starting with setting up, researching, pricing, marketing, operating/staffing the sale and clean up. We can also provide your estate attorney with an itemized record of sales. We remove the stress from what can be a difficult situation and we do it efficiently and quickly with genuine concern for the people involved. You have to put yourself in your client's shoes and proceed with compassion.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. Several things. First, our clients! They are simply the best! Secondly, providing quality services to families in need of estate liquidations; we are proud that people consider us professionals! And last but not least, uncovering that special item a family member had forgotten about and watching them rediscover the memories behind it! (And yes.....we ask the owners if they care to do a walk-thru when the items are arranged and priced so they can make sure they have all the family heirlooms they want.)
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you?
A. What do you charge for your service? There is no upfront fee, we charge a percentage of sales for our services. Do you advertise? Yes. We advertise in a variety of media in the general location of the sale and this may include: newspapers,estatesale.net website, Craigs List, and our list of pre-identified customers on an invitation only appointment basis. How fast can you arrange for an estate sale to take place? We have arranged sales in as little as 2 weeks time depending on our schedule!
