    Penny and Pig Estate Sales
    Penny & Pig Estates Sales was a Godsend! My late brother was an extreme hoarder. I had spent weekends over the past year clearing the house and sorting his stuff and our late parents' valuables. They had resided in the house since the mid-1970s and there were a lot of family belongings to dispose of. By March I was ready to bring in estate sales company. The person recommended by my realtor is located in the San Fernando Valley and by speaking to her, I could sense that she really wasn't interested in making the long treks to the San Gabriel Valley to conduct a sale. She also was negative regarding the items I had to sell. Discouraged, I spent a few days researching other estate sellers. Based on the good reviews and their proximity in the SGV, I settled on Penny & Pig. Taking my initial call, owner Penny Katz was very receptive to my description of the estate. She came out to the house the very next day. We spent at least an hour going over what I had sorted as well as the furnishings and clothes closets. She was very honest in a tactful way, recognizing the sentimental value of the property and the belongings. She told me what she could sell and what should be donated. She also has an an excellent sense of humor, which I appreciate. I felt confident that she would do right by me. Having agreed to proceed, she scheduled the sale for the Friday and Saturday of Easter weekend. 10 days before, she sent her crew in to begin arranging the house for the sale. Meanwhile, Rafael, her transport guy, went over with Penny and me to sort through a storage unit of my late father in-law's furnishings. Penny was able then and there to determine what to sell at the estate sale and what to donate to charity. The storage unit was cleared that day. On the Monday, Wednesday and Thursday before the estate sale, Penny and her crew returned to my brother's house to continue the preparation and pricing for the event. Personal items that they found during their organization went into bathrooms (bathrooms are kept off-limits to estate sale customers). The crew was also able to find many mementos that had either been feared lost or forgotten and were safely put aside. Penny advertised the estate sale widely and it paid off handsomely. Over the course of the Friday and Saturday, Penny estimated that she had up to 400 people attend the estate sale. People bought vintage cameras, antiques and antique furnishings, jewelry, books, magazines, clothing, housewares, gardening equipment, etc. - even a car! After I went through the remaining items, Penny arranged for a charity to come in and take what they wanted. The charity gave us a receipt for charitable tax deductions. Once they were gone, Penny's crew proceeded to clear out the house, an all-day job. By the time they were finished, the house was vacant. Shortly thereafter, Penny sent me a handsome check for the sale, minus a standard commission fee and a very reasonable charge for cleaning out the house. Their efficiency made it possible for me to not only list the house for sale less than a week after the estate sale, but for the realtor to stage an Open House. Four days later, the house was sold. Had you asked me in March if this was at all possible, I would have said, "No way!" My thanks to Penny and her crew for everything!

    We had just returned from overseas with purchases of south sea pearls and we wanted to verify the authenticity and value as soon as possible. Todd was able to accommodate us the same day and verify they were the real thing. He followed up with our written appraisals in a week. Great customer service!

    This was a very new experience for us as we were "nice jewelry rookies". What a great find. Patrick is truly a professional. Knowledgeable, personable, very detail oriented, willing to take as much time with us as we needed to get a deep understanding of both the science and art behind the process of accurately appraising jewelry. We were lucky, prior to meeting Patrick we bought our recent pieces from a jeweler who it turns out, was truthful with us in what he charged us for the pieces that we bought. It was very calming when Patrick gave us this news. We are now armed with the knowledge and the tools to make a much more informed decision the next time we buy something. We will be working with Patrick on all of our future jewelry purchases and also enthusiastically recommending him to our friends and family. Thank you Patrick, for a job incredibly well done!!

    Gold 'N I Jewelers
    Harry did excellent work. My engagement ring was heavily damaged. Harry did exquisite work rebuilding the entire ring, making it a much better version of the original. The setting is beautiful but also stronger than the original and has more sparkle. He also has a beautiful collection of custom jewelry that anyone would love to add to their collection. Everything was a wonderful mix of both classic but with a custom twist. It was over an hour drive for me to get to Harry, and I'm sure I passed 1000 Jewelers on the way, but the drive was worth it. The work is amazing and speaks for itself.

    STUART H SALSBURY APPRAISAL SERVICES
    Mr Salsbury is a wonderful, kind man whom is extremely knowledgeable. His portfolio is lengthy and impressive (Sotheby's, Architectual Digest - can't remember them all!!). His rate for documenting and then later, typing and returning in digital + hard copy was extremely reasonable. I highly recommend him to anyone whom has anything of value they wish to insure.

    Novotny Appraisal Services
    Mr. Novotny was very helpful in this process. He was quick, thorough, and knowledgable about a variety of different items. He was aware of current market values and very careful to explain the prices he was giving. He was pleasant to work with and our family felt relieved to have someone come in give us a realistic estimation of the value of the home's contents. We would definitely hire him again.

    The Estate Sisters
    Great results, wonderful efficient team. Hard to reflect costs because proceeds from sale offset the labor. They were efficient and organized, pleasant to work with, great at keeping things cleaned up. They tailor their work to your needs. Know that in some cases it is important for the owner to take time to carefully lable everything so that items end up in the expected places: move, store, sell, donate, trash, etc.
