  • Ron worked diligently on the sale for almost a year. He listed many items on his website, Craig's list, etc in order to move items before the actual physical estate sale.His crew organized, itemized, researched a zillion items that had accrued over 60 years, including two old cars, and a roomful of vinyls. He made it as painless as is possible. I felt the %50 commission we settled on was well deserved given the extent of the property, there was a two story main home and three large out buildings, full of stuff. Had it been a more typical one home estate sale, I think the commission would have reflected that.I would use Ron again in a heartbeat!

  • Ron and his crew are an absolute dream to work with.  They have a great system and a great work ethic.  Ron is honest, intelligent, and not afraid of hard work.  You can trust him to do everything he can to make this process as smooth as possible while remaining sensitive to the fact that this can be an emotionally difficult experience.
    The task of clearing our space and reclaiming as much value as possible was physically and mentally overwhelming  for me. 
    Ron and his crew approached it with a solid plan.  Not something I could have done nearly as well on my own.  His network  of contacts and resources is impressive, but more so, the way he manages them in order to maximize the time, space, and income potential of the whole project is outstanding.
    Over the course of two months I witnessed the Ambitious crew methodically and carefully give attention to every detail and ultimately deliver exactly as promised  precisely on schedule.  I could not be happier that I found Ambitious Estate Liquidators.  No question they will be my first call should the need arise again.

  • I found Ron and Ambitious Estate Liquidators on Angies List.  The cool thing about this was I am in Chicago; I had a situation where my grandmother's house in Lakewood needed to be sold, but like many grandmother homes, there many decades of stuff in the house that needed to be sold after the family was able to clear out all the things with meaningful memories.  I was in Lakewood for about 3 days in July to get alot of affairs in order as well as to get the house cleaned out.  I spoke with Ron about his services and fees and we agreed on an appraoch for him to bid the project.  Once I agreed to the contact, he went into action and conducted an onsite estate sale with tones of foot traffic.
    My relator was on site for the second day of the sale and indcated there were about 50 people at the house and Ron's staff had everything under control.  Again, I was not there, I was not on site for any of the prep work or the estate sale.  It was all managed by Ron and team and they delivered.  He kept my family up to speed on what was happening and got us a nice price for the goods that were sold from the house.  We negotiated a price for him to completely empty everything that was not sold and left in the house.
    This is a great example of how Angies List works and the way a trustworthy service provider can be found.  I had confidence and trust in Ron to do the job primarily becsue he was on Angies List and had solid reviews.  Ron delivered on my trust in him and his team.  They made a commitment to deliver results and they delivered on their commitment.

  • Totally Dissatisfied with this company & sale conducted.  Will not shop at their store...overpriced & not willing to work with customers.
    Would NOT recommend this company to anyone!!!
    1.  In person, told cost would be 35% of total sale.  On contract, they changed to 38%.
    2.  Did NOT provide enough help to get sale set up & conducted correctly.
    3.  Late to 1st day of sale.  It was Kaos!  Didn't have enough help to run sale in a professional manner.
    4.  NO Accountability of $$.  Ran sale as a RUMMAGE sale rather than an Estate Sale.
        *Contract stated that: "Records & Receipts:  Records regarding the proceeds of sale will be open to you at all times during and after the sale."  Asked for proceeds on 1st day & was told I'd see it on Monday.
      *There was no recording keeping as to what item sold for what $$$.  Money was put in pocket & no recording keeping.
         How do I know how much I made per day???  I didn't know this company except that I had shopped at the store a couple times.
         I was just supposed to trust that he was honest!!!!  I didn't know him personally to trust.  Felt ripped off & cheated.
      * My experience with Estate Sales is that there is a person keeping track...on paper...of what sold & the price.
           Didn't happen here, even though it stated on the contract that records would be kept.
     
    5.  Prices of Items:   Did NOT know value of expensive items...even with an appraisal in hand.  Gave away items!!  Had friends & dealers come to sale 1st day & gave lower prices on 1st day of sale. No chance of making the most money possible. I had to pull items from the sale due to $$$$'s.  Was told I couldn't do that.  I had to let him give away items. Did not say in contract that I couldn't pull items.  Made up rules as they went.  UNPROFESSIONAL!
    Several expensive items disappeared prior to sale. They couldn't tell me where they went or how much they sold for!
    Again, NO RECORD KEEPING.
    6.  Did NOT want me at sale & told me at beginning of 2nd day of sale. He yelled at ME over a customer who was out of control that I had asked to leave my property. Told me he was the BOSS & in charge!   Unprofessional!  He was NOT willing to take responsibility for any mishaps during sale. *Big RISK for homeowner should someone get hurt during sale & homeowner not present!
         *Complained to me that they had to take down take apart items during sale.  Their responsibility since they are running sale & didn't want me there to help.  NO ENOUGH HELP!!!
    7.  Items SOLD prior to Sale:
       I had several friends that came to my home to view items for sale PRIOR to sale starting.  I sold them before the sale started.  They wanted their 40% of sales Prior to estate sale started.  They didn't sell it, I did... Why should they get any money for items I sold???  UNPROFESSIONAL & DISHONEST!
    8.  After The Sale: 
       *Left home in big mess for me to clean up!
        *Met with them on Monday after sale:  Given a letter of what I had done wrong.
       * No one there to help with large items.  Their responsibility!  NOT enough help!!
       * Complained no AC in house.  I will not pay for AC when all the doors and window in the house were open.
     Took no responsibility for how sale was conducted. 
         *They picked up large items on Tuesday after sale....again, no record keeping, so I how did I know they really sold, or if the items were going to his store????
         * Still NO RECORD of items & prices sold...just a total $ minus his 38% & fees + complaints about me.
    9.   The ONLY positive:   Advertising- Very good.  Lots of people
    I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY TO ANYONE!  BEWARE!!  YOU WILL GET RIPPED OFF TOO!!
