    Laura, thank you for the recap of your work. As I said, you and your team work magic! I am so glad I came across your website and decided to call you. Clearing out my parent���s home seemed like an impossible task for my brother and I, and thanks to you and your team, it was all done in two days! I must say, you and your sister were extremely professional and very organized. I would recommend your services to anybody. When you send the information via postal mail, feel free to include some business cards and I will give them to anybody I think could benefit from your company���s services. ~ Steve S., Edina, MN

    We were disappointed. There was a lack of communication and a lack of transparency. Many of the items that were supposed to be in the sale were thrown in the garbage, sold or donated prior to the sale and were not accounted for. On the positive side: on the day of the sale the merchandise was arranged nicely and the signage was well done.

    Birkeland and associates conducted an estate sale for us over a year ago and we have yet to receive any of the proceeds. They originally said that they were running behind on getting checks processed, but now have stopped returning calls. There was a recent article in the Star/Tribune and it appears they have been doing this same thing with a number of their customers (i.e., having the estate sale and keeping all of the proceeds for themselves).

    We sold our house and needed to move on relatively short notice, wanting to downsize significantly. We contacted several estate sale companies, being very wary of some companies' bad reputations. One was busy on the weekend we needed them. Another came and looked at what we had and said we didn't have enough to make it worthwhile. I tried to stop Integrity from coming out to look at our things based upon the agent who said we didn't have enough. Dave wanted to stop by anyway. He looked at the same things the other agent did and said he could make it work. Since we needed to get rid of a lot of stuff and didn't want to do a moving sale ourselves, we decided it was worth it to go with them even if we ended up paying them money to get rid of some stuff.
    Dave and his staff were just great. They were always happy and friendly and whenever we had a question, Dave would say, and quot;we'll figure it out.and quot; They came a couple of days in advance to organize and price everything. They allowed us to keep a portion of our house cordoned off from the sale so that we did not have to move out while the sale was happening. Since we were keeping about third of our belongings, they made room where we could store the items that were not for sale. They brought in additional items to sell so that it looked like we had a lot to sell. The sale took two days and I was concerned that the traffic might cause damage to light colored carpet, but they made people take off their shoes and the carpet was fine. After the sale, they dealt with all the people who needed to come by to pick up things they had bought. They also came back and cleaned out everything that didn't sell and were willing to take a small amount of junk that hadn't even been part of the sale.
    Integrity was probably more expensive than some of the other companies we contacted, but we ended up with more money from the sale than we thought was possible, and certainly more than the other agent we had contacted who said we didn't have enough. Dave was an absolute joy to work with. I couldn't recommend him more highly.

    I hired Piccadilly to conduct an estate sale after speaking with a few companies.  I selected Piccadilly because my first impression was good, their fees were consistent with the other companies, and I had a number of guns to sell.  I really liked that they had a firearms specialist who would appraise the guns, clean them, handle them during the sale, and ensure buyers were licensed.  Michelle and her team did a great job of sorting through everything and staging it throughout the house.  The presentation of items was really nice.  Their advertising strategies seemed to be good because turn out was very high.  And in the end, the sale proceeds were much higher than the initial estimate.  Overall, I was very happy with my Piccadilly experience.  The staff were pleasant and easy to work with, and the outcome was very good.  They left the house in good shape after the sale too.

    The girls made a very hard time in my life really nice. They took care of everything and really took the time to get to know my Mom's things and made sure that we received a fair price. They are kind but also very good at what they do!

    Shortly after a close relative's passing, we four family members wanted estate sale and clean-out services for a condo. We chose Caring Transitions over another well-rated Angie's List-Milwaukee estate sale firm, as we felt the latter was grouchy and disagreeable when we asked about services. Lisa Yoder of Caring Transitions responded caringly and was available within a day to examine and assess the property. While one family member thought Lisa was a little brusque, the majority liked her approach: explanatory, talkative with a soft touch, yet very businesslike. She was kind but plain-spoken that the possessions might not bring in that much and we could owe money. But given the circumstances and wishes, our family agreed to have Caring Transitions carry out the estate sale and requested the add-on home clean-out service. In a word-- wow! It was impressive how Lisa and crew transformed the contents of a moderately full condo and garage into a clean, ready-to-list property. Lisa knows her stuff and makes the onerous tasks associated with sifting through belongings seem easy. This Caring Transition franchise knew how to make a profitable estate sale from neglect and chaos. Particularly noteworthy about the experience were these: 1) explanation and flexibility of adding or removing services to fit the needs and desires of family, a homeowners' association, and a municipality; 2) extra effort and advocacy to make sure the estate sale was profitable, particularly recognizing and properly pricing more valuable items and 3) care to find good uses for items not sold or sellable, such as towels to animal shelters. Pros: fair cut of sale proceeds (30%), professional and organized, goes above and beyond to ensure personal and valuable items get to the family and not strangers, great sense of item pricing, creative in finding low-cost solutions for waste disposal, uses modern advertising media that get results, communicates very well (including digital photos of results), recommends fix-ups before you list property for sale, one-stop service for multiple estate-related needs. Cons: detailed work can tie up the property for large blocks of time, exclusion of client (incl. changing of locks) from property during prep and sale can anger and aggravate some, cost of clean-out can be high compared to others providing the same service, off-hand opinion about safety of neighborhood. Overall, if you have multiple or non-local parties trying to deal with an relative's estate or downsizing, the negatives pale compare to the positives-- particularly stress relief-- you'll get using Caring Transitions.

    Long Story short, I asked that the items be held for me. The items could not be pickup on the weekend so I had to wait for a day off during the week. So, by the time I was able to pick up the items they had been resold, and now I am trying to get my money back. Make sure you understand where the items are located before you bid. Be sure you are able to pick up the items on the specific day mentioned in the auction.

    Michelle came to my home to see what we were planning to sell in a moving sale. We signed a contract for her team to come in and set up, wash dishware that needed it, and to polish the silver that we were selling. Michelle told me she had a jewelry expert that would weigh and price any valuable jewelry. The silver went on the tables tarnished because she told me no one wants silver-plate, so why polish it. Her jewelry expert did not bring his scale, and priced an 18ct gold bracelet at $45.oo because he did not recognize it as 18ct. Her people went into a room we specifically told them not to go into because it still contained our items, and took out our things, and after telling them once they went back in to get our folding tables to use. We chose to cancel our contract and pay her for the time she spent. A nice person, but not a good match.
