Step 2. Consultation & Contract
We will arrange a time at your convenience to meet with you in person. At that time we will
walk through the estate documenting the contents through video and photographs to create a
plan that addresses your specific situation.
Based on the initial walk around, we then sit down and decide with you the best services to fit
your needs. When we come to an agreement on how we can help you, a contract addressing
the agreed upon services will be signed.

We take care of everything from start to finish - sorting, cleaning, pricing, advertising, and staging. Our goal is to visually and organizationally present the estate items for sale in the best way to maximize the sales potential of the merchandise.
