ESTATE SALES ARE A GREAT WAY TO SERVICE MANY SITUATIONS
We have literally provided estate sales for just about every situation and walk of life. From the everyday homes to pro-athletes, Ambassadors, Senators, Governors and more through the years. We have not only been providing our estate sales to the local community for years but have also been the industry leader for years, in many arenas. This may sound archaic but, we were the first company to offer online estate sales and the first to offer credit cards for payment at our estate sales. Now these are pretty much standard in the industry. We inadvertently single handedly shut several companies down because they were not legally charging sales tax like we were and like you are required by the IRS, state and local laws require. They didn’t know it at the time but we did and were flooded with business yet again because other companies were shut down for periods of months settling with the IRS and their clients and customers suffered, for their inexperience and lack of business knowledge of what was required by local tax laws. Unfortunately their clients dealt with the fallout from having to close their business.
My, how time has changed but our estate sale success has continuously grown and are now in offices across the U.S. and our estate sales are still valued at number one! Why? Well, we continue to do things the right way, while others are shut down we are growing and continuing to push the envelope in technology, organization and transparency in the estate sale process.
