    Stanley Brown Jewelers Ltd
    I took in a watch for repair and it was accepted and sent to the jeweler's watch repairer. Needed a new crystal and a loose date hand either replaced or removed. It was returned to the store a week later because the repair person 'didn't like working with Asian-produced watches'. I've had this same watch - as well as other similar Asian-produced watches - repaired with no issues at my usual watch repairer on Wabash jewelers row. As neighborhood jewelers close one after the other these days, I would have expected more of a 'serve the client by finding a solution' approach. Never again.

    IRON HORSE ANTIQUES
    We met with Debbie and Jim last night to have them do an appraisal for us. The knowledge that they have about antiques was truly astounding. They were efficient in their appraisal so that it would keep our costs down. They were willing to work around our schedule, which was very helpful to us. We were pleasantly surprised about how honest and straightforward they were about the value of the jewelry that we had appraised. In the past, I have experienced other appraisers that have tried to be misleading about whether my jewelry had genuine value, so we were so thankful for their honesty. If you need an appraisal of an antique or if you would like to purchase an antique, these two lovely people are the ones to see.

    Paxem, Inc. Residential & Senior Moving & Estate Liquidation
    Everything was first-class. From the initial consult at the house with Gayle Nudelman to the final paperwork, the Paxem team were always efficient, professional, and savvy, as well as warm, understanding, and compassionate. I always felt they were treating my mother's stuff and my feelings with respect. They communicated with me every step of the way.  I appreciate Paxem all the more because they came to my rescue. I live 300 miles away and work full-time, so I had very limited ability to get to Chicago. Because of break-ins in my mom's neighborhood, I was desperate to get the house cleared out ASAP. I had already contacted four other firms before finding out about Paxem. After the firm I had chosen told me they were booked, and the other three were non-starters for various reasons, in desperation I asked my realtor (the superb Nancy Perlman) if she knew anybody. One of her colleagues suggested Paxem. The Paxem team totally understood my time constraints and flew into action.

    Paxem, Inc. Residential & Senior Moving & Estate Liquidation
    They had 3-5 appraisers on site while the junk removal company brought up materials for them to assess. They were able to locate the valuable items mixed in the trash very well!

    Susie's Chicago IL Estate Sales
    Amazing company to work with, prompt, professional, reasonable and honest. They organized and managed a THREE DAY whole-house sale (three levels and garage packed with items) for me. They did an incredible job organizing it all, pricing, and staging before the sale. During the sale, they managed a large number of people/buyers coming in and out of the house. They had ample people working the sale and watching over each area/room. Susie's Estate Sales also provided booties and made people put them on to protect the newly installed carpeting. During the sale, they were expert at re-arranging items as things were sold to make the remaining items more marketable. They are credible and honest. For instance, they found $290 cash in an envelope that I must have tucked away years ago in my sewing supplies box, and they told me about it and gave it back to me. Also, they track sales over $25, and they will call you about items for which you set a minimum price. For closets or doors that you don't want people snooping into, they provide lockable door handle covers. This is good security for items you want to protect and not have sold or stolen. If you have ever been to an estate sale, you know that people will open and snoop into any room, shelf, drawer or closet (taping closed with signs is not good enough.) After the sale, they tidied up as much as could be expected. Of course, there where unsold items and some furniture left. However, they gave me a great recommendation for a donation organization who came with a large truck and pack up items to be donated. That same company will also do disposal services (that you pay for) but they provide the labor -- much easier and faster than renting a dumpster and doing this all yourself. Susie's Estate Sales paid me my share within a very reasonable time. Communications were always prompt and easy. I would use Susie's Estate Sales again and would recommend them to friends and family!

    Debbie and Jim were fantastic! They expertly sorted thru the jewelry and clearly explained the process as they worked. What a team! Would I use them again? In a heartbeat. They would be my first call. Even if there is something not "under their umbrella" of knowledge they have an excellent network of trusted people they can refer to. Will I recommend them to others? Yes indeed. Thanks much from Sharon in Lake Villa.

    HINSDALE FINE JEWELRY CO
    We first heard of Bert from our son who lives close to the store and suggested we use him for our jewelry needs. Bert made him an offer on items he was selling and was amazed how professional and how he soared above the other Mall and stores in the Oak Brook area. Mr Wait (Bert) has been outstanding and far exceeded our expectations. He is professional, helpful, fair accurate appraisals, top prices, confidential, and has the patience in explaining his process for appraisals and pricing. The office in Oak Brook is absolutely the must-see spot for purchases with so many wonderful items for that special gift of jewelry or collectables. We will continue using Bert for all our needs and have recommended him to friends and family. Our Grading for Bert: Diamonds!

    IRON HORSE ANTIQUES
    Debbie was very professional and so knowledgeable. Delivered a well researched and documented, detailed written list of appraised antiques. She is so knowledgeable. Debbie's daughter is Staci McArdle and she runs Iron Horse Estate Sales. What an amazing help she was in clearing out my house and making the mo$t of the items I decided I no longer needed after 50 years of accumulation. She made down sizing easy. I moved and left salable items in situ in the house, Staci and her crew organized everything for display, advertised well enough to gather a huge crows of potential buyers. What she didn't see, she had picked up by a charity, She totally cleared out the house and left only a 20" square pile of garbage in the garage for pick up by local trash co. Final result; photos of my empty house. so satisfying.
