. He was patient in explaining his strategy which made sense to us. The auctions are still ongoing. When we expressed concerns about the overall pace as well as the storage conditions for our prints, he personally intervened with the auctioneer in charge and was able to assure us that our inventory was being properly stored in the interim and that it would continue to receive priority attention. This entire process has been difficult for us as we are long-distance and have had to rely on others in our absence over an extended period of time. So far we have been dealing with Mr.
for more than a year. We appreciate his attention to detail and the way he has been responsive to all of our questions, as our situation is certainly out of the norm for both ourselves and his general business practice. He came highly recommended by a longtime friend in the area.

and her crew assisted our family to conduct an estate sale after our parents passed away. Besides the obvious emotional feelings surrounding" the event, the enormity of the items remaining to be sorted was daunting. We contacted
to see if she would conduct an estate sale at my parent's residence. She was professional, responsive, arrived on time, and was very courteous regarding our circumstances. We hired her and were shocked by how quickly and efficiently She and her group sorted and displayed all the household items. She has been doing this for years, She is amazing! The sale was run beautifully. Neighbors of my parents that frequent estate sales told us this was one of the most well run estate sales they have seen. The sale was a success! We were so pleased with her quality of work we hired her and her crew to help us empty out the remaining items in the house to prepare it for sale, This was again done extremely timely and really took an emotional
away from us. The place was spotless after they were done. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! We will look forward to attending your sales in the future as a purchaser. An amazing woman!

We needed serious help in clearing out over a half centuries worth of belongings. We found
Alto Auction Services Provider Name Locked
on Facebook and met with her to discuss her services. She was very personable and had a good action plan so the contracts were signed.
Alto Auction Services Provider Name Locked
and her team worked very hard to go through the entire home and workshop. All items were sorted, evaluated, cleaned and priced. She even managed to get the sale on a week earlier than promised which when you consider the volume of items was amazing!
I didn't enter a cost of service because her fee is a percentage of the proceeds and that percentage changes with the total sales, going somewhat lower as thresholds are met. I will say that for the work she and her team provided I felt that the cost was extremely reasonable.
If you find yourself in need of someone to help you through a similar situation I can strongly recommend
Alto Auction Services Provider Name Locked
and her team.

Everything went well. The company itemizes and inventories everything...takes pictures and provides detailed lists to their pre-approved customers who then bid on the items for sale. The company collects the payments and after their commission they send you a check of the proceeds. The entire process was effortless and convenient. If you are looking to sell a moderate to large amount of items this is the only company you'll need. The company is professional and first class.

I inherited a house filled with stuff. My family and I tried to clean it out weekend after weekend, but made little progress and felt overwhelmed. My realtor recommended
Alto Auction Services Provider Name Locked
. He met me at the house the day I called, walked through it all with me, took a deep breath, agreed that it was overwhelming, but cheerfully and confidently told me he could do the job.
We agreed that an estate sale was impractical, so I paid him $1000 to clean out the house, plus he could keep anything that he felt he could resell at his store. He took care of hauling things away, hiring a dumpster, and contacting charities for stuff that was still serviceable but not worth selling.

also coordinated painting and refreshing the existing floors, and installing laminate flooring. He finished on-time and on-budget, left the place cleaner than he found it, and would not let me pay him until I was delighted with the results.

My mother had lived in her home for 43 years and this was a very emotional decision for her. I was chosen to decide on the company that would handle this for her. I went to Angie's List at the beginning of my research and found no estate sale companies or auction companies in Mississippi on her list. I continued researching companies and decided to use

and their staff are so professional and so full of integrity. They did exactly what they said they said they would do, no surprises! They treated my mother with respect and kindness through the entire process. They are honest, truthful and they care! They took care of everything from the moment we signed the contract. She received more than the asking price for her home and we were very pleased with the amount we received for her personal property. I wanted them included on Angie's List for people like me who are in need of this type of service and do not know where to start. I highly recommend

I was placed into an assisted living facility after I lost the use of my legs. Prior to this, I had been living alone in my home in North Seattle since 1985, and the house was filled to the brim with furniture and my various collections.The decision to be placed into the facility was made suddenly, not giving me a

, I knew I had nothing to worry about. She assured me that she would catalog as much as she could and take pictures of my things for reference so we could decide what to do with everything from my bedside. This was very important to me, and I was pleasantly surprised that she would even offer to take such a step just for me. In the beginning of the process I had a very difficult time deciding what to do, but then with gentle prodding from

I was able to make the hard decisions of what to keep, donate or put into storage. As an added service,

She even hooked up my cable and television for me! In the end, I was able to sell a great many things, put a few precious things into storage to decide what to do with later and I donated the rest to Children's Hospital

They were on time, polite and professional. It would have taken months to do what they did in a day. Anything they had questions about they brought to me to see if it was something I wanted to keep. People need to remember that the contents of a house is not worth a lot of money unless you had collectables or antiques. Knowing the house is empty and we can fix it up to sell is a weight off of my shoulders. I will most likely use them again when we down size our house.

conducted an auction at our home on
February 7 from noon until 3:00 PM. We
are downsizing moving from a three bedroom home to a two bedroom condo in
downtown Greenville, SC. The auction was
very well attended and was very successful.
We were very pleased with the professionalism of the auction team and
the proceeds from the auction.
