ONE FLAT FEE

Our company provides all services included in one flat cost. While other Chicago estate sale companies may charge for labor and marketing, everything is included in our commission. 

EXPERT PRICING

Your family’s property was cherished for decades with the hope that one day it would be a good investment for their descendants. As antique dealers in business for 50 years we’ve had skin in the game. Our expansive database of knowledge of valuables will help you get the most money for your property. 

50 YEARS IN BUSINESS

You see a lot of estate sales popping up almost every month. Our family has been conducting in home sales for the better half of a century. Our goal is to provide your family with the same service and attention we’ve been known to have for over half a century. 

Your unique situation matters to us. 

FLEXIBILITY, KINDNESS, Professionalism

Our team is fully equipped to make the most of the cards you have been dealt. It is no small task to liquidate an estate in Chicago, especially when dealing with grief and loss. Our vision has always been to help others first. At our sales, each customer that walks through your front door is treated with kindness and respect. No matter the situation we are equipped to handle even the most dificult of situations. 

Estate Liquidations & Estate Sales

When someone passes, they leave a lot of stuff behind. It may seem like clutter but often there are unknown sources of value in the home. What may look like a beat up comic book collection could gross you in the high 5 figures. Pots and pans, crystal stemware and the like can all help you achieve your bottom line. Call a legacy Chicago estate sale company to help.

Hoarding and Cleanout

Our team has handled even the most severe of hoarding situations. While not all hoarding cases may be appropriate for a sale, many are. We can handle the preparation for sale as well as consign valuable items that may be better suited for an off site auction. If you are looking for a Chicago estate sale company, call us to assess the situation.

High End Antique & Art Collections

You may have inherited a large collection of seemingly ornate and beautiful items. This is where enlisting the service and trust of an expert in antiques comes to be of utmost importance. As dealers in high end fine and decorative art, we have the unique ability to ask appropriate, fair and intelligent market prices for your antiques. Explore your options before you decide on a company and make sure you ask them questions about their abilities as an accurate appraiser of current market values.

FAQs

  • Our fee is a flat 35% all around. This includes marketing, labor, set up and professional photography. We try to make it easy for our clients to understand our fee structure so we’ve narrowed it down to a flat percentage with nothing hidden. This excludes some hoarding situations if you need us to prepare a home for sale which has been neglected. Please contact us with details.
