    Grasons Co. Estate Sale Services
    Helen and her team at Grason's did an outstanding job. We're always very responsive and went above and beyond helping out during a difficult time. Not only did they conduct the estate sale, but helped with the final clean out of items and donations to charity. Not only did they help take the load of a tough burden, but made everything so easy. I would highly recommend the Grasons MetroWest team.

    George Costopulos Auctioneers & George & Co Estate
    I hired George to sell the contents of my aunts estate because he was the most professional and knowledgeable of all the the estate sale companies and numerous dealers who I interviewed, . My aunt's estate had many quality antiques, jewelry, and household furnishing and I wanted the right company that would know what these items were worth and would have the following to get good prices. In the course of my research I found that George had been in the estate sale & antiques auction business for over 30 years and came highly recommended on many levels. He was written up in the Boston Globe antique section on many occasions and the national antiques paper "the arts and antiques weekly". I felt, at this point with such a wide experence in selling fine antiques and household items George would be the right estate company. He came to my aunt’s estate and went threw everything and found items that I thought were junk and I had planed to through away. Thank goodness he had the knowlege to recognize their value because he got a lot of money for these items. After George looked at everything, he photographed all the pieces that he thought would attract buyers to the sale and made a page on his website dedicated to my sale and it came out beautifully. He sent out over 2000 emails from his list of people who had attended and purchased items from pervious estate sales and auctions and also advertised on estate sale .org, which send out over 12,000 emails. He also advertised on Craig’s list. Prior to the sale he came to my aunts home and organized everything and set up jewelry cases with lights and by time he was finished the place looked like a show room. He schedule the sale on Saturday from 9am to about 2pm. The day of the sale there was over 100 people waiting outside. It was a bit chaotic at first but George and his crew handled the crowd with ease. After the sale, George explained that letting the whole crowd in, is a good strategy because it creates a buying pressure. He said people feel other people are looking over there shoulder wanting to buy the item they are looking at so they pay the price that George wants and everything goes very quickly. He also said that the people who come early have all the big money and are highly motivated to buy. Sounds complicated but he was right. George had five workers besides himself and they were very helpful and curtious, bring furniture and other items to peoples cars. The sale has a steady flow of people after the hectic first 2 hours with people buying items all day long and by the time he was finished most everything was gone and he made us a pile of money. I was so thankful we hired george to do this sale. Everything went perfectly without a hitch as he predicted. He is truly a professional and I have recommended him several times.

    George Costopulos Auctioneers & George & Co Estate
    I give George a five star review. He was extremely professional and did an outstanding job advertising the sale. Unfortunately the day of the sale was freezing rain and snow, which resulted in a smaller that expected turn-out. George was responsive and offered to do an email blast to over 2000 contact and let them know the sale would repeat the following day. George returned the following day and stayed for four hours to supervise the sale. George has a strong following and the estate sale was very successful. My entire family is very grateful for the excellent service provided.

    George Costopulos Auctioneers & George & Co Estate
    George has the best services out there. Very honest and knowledgeable on the trade. I watched him deal with transactions where he refused low bids for quality antiques so the owner got the most return for their items. You can not find a better company.

    Best Rate Cleanouts & Estate Sales
    During a very stressful period trying to liquidate my sister's house due to a sudden death, I did not know where to begin. Chris and his staff took over in a heartbeat which reduced my anxiety greatly. I think the best words out of his mouth were...."you don't have to take anything out of drawers, closets or cabinets in preparation of the Estate Sale . The team was very professional, thorough, and very accommodating to my feelings. I highly recommend Best Rate Cleanouts

    RR Auctions
    I first came across this auction house a couple of years ago and ever since then I browse their catalogues each month to see what items they have brought in. I sometimes even bid on things that seem really interesting to me because I always look for items with a great backstory. In my opinion, they are one of the best auction houses around. I’ve heard a lot of things being said about them but I don’t really care for such details. I’m actually more interested in the types of collectibles they have and how well they treat their customers. This obviously means that I’m more than happy with their services.

    Canterbury Estate Sales, LLC
    I would like to thank Beth and her crew for the very professional way they handled the estate sale. Not being local to the area made us a little worried about how this process would be accomplished. We met Beth for a walk through of the house and from that point on we knew she was both capable and experienced enough to handle what every came up. Communication throughout the process was exceptional and they forwarded the remaining personal items to us that we had missed. All in all a Canterbury Estate Sales provided a complete service from evaluation to setup of the sale and cleanup afterwards. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a respectful and honest company to handle their estate sale.

    Move Managing
    Bill is incredibly professional and responsive. He knows his business very well and sets very realistic expectations about what will sell and what won't. Anything he doesn't know, he has the ability to research and find the answer. Cleaning out my husband's childhood home after his parents passed was very stressful -- we were able to trust Bill to handle so many of the things that would have been incredibly painful to do ourselves. Do you really want to stand in your parents' dining room and haggle over the price of a table with a stranger? No. But Bill did it for us. Our realtor stopped by the house during the sale and said he was very impressed at Bill's negotiations and with the number of people at the sale. And could you fill a dumpster with your childhood memories and take them to be given or thrown away? No. But Bill did it for us, and at a very reasonable cost that was offset by proceeds from the tag sale (after Bill's commission). I also very much appreciate the range of services Bill offers -- it's really soup to nuts, anything you or a loved one needs help with to transition out of a home. While we didn't take advantage of everything he could have done for us, it was very reassuring to know that if something new had come up, we could have called him and he likely could take care of it. It wasn't easy to locate someone who provides all the services we needed -- many "estate sales" companies are only interested in the items have significant value. I'm so glad we found Bill!

    George Costopulos Auctioneers & George & Co Estate
    Despite it being early February, George predicted a large crowd and boy was he right! Because of his large data base of customers, and other ads/signs, many people came. We were pleased at how much (and what!) sold. His estimate of total earned was accurate, although we were more interested in emptying the house than earning money. George is paid by taking a percent of this total. George appeared to have a lot of experience running these sales and knowledge of goods (i.e., silver, jewelry, china, furniture) and prices. He spent quite a bit of time at the house prior to the sale organizing things, taking photos, and appraising certain items. When we asked for a contract, his insurance paperwork, and a receipt he was prompt in providing them. I would use George again if I ever have to downsize!
